About:
The poet urges earnestly to raise our hands in prayer/help for the down-trodden and the oppressed, so that they muster enough courage and strength to get themselves out of the deplorable state they’re in.

Poem:
Aaiye Haath Uthaayain Ham Bhii
Ham Jinhe Rasm-E-Dua Yaad Nahin
Ham Jinhe Soz-E-Mohabbat Ke Siwa
Koi But, Koi Khuda Yaad Nahin

Aaiye Arz Guzare Ki Nigaar-E-Hasti
Zahar-E-Imaroz Main Shirini-E-Fardaa Bhar Dein
Wo Jinhe Taab-E-Garaanbaari-E-Ayyaam Nahin
Unki Palkon Pe Shab-O-Roz Ko Halka Kar De

Jinki Aankhon Ko Rukh-E-Subh Ka Yaara Bhi Nahin
Unki Raaton Main Koi Shamma Munawwar Kar De
Jinke Qadamon Ko Kisi Rah Ka Sahara Bhi Nahin
Unki Nazaron Pe Koi Raah Ujaagar Kar De

Jinka Deen Pairvi-E-Kazb-O-Riya Hai Unko
Himmat-E-Kufr Mile, Jurrat-E-Tahqiiq Mile
Jinke Sar Muntazir-E-Tegh-E-Jafa Hain Unko
Dast-E-Qatil Ko Jhatak Dene Ki Taufeeq Mile

Ishq Ka Sar-E-Nihaan Jaan Tapaan Hai Jis Se
Aaj Iqraar Karain Aur Tapish Mit Jaaye
Harf-E-Haq Dil Main Khatakta Hai Jo Kante Ki Tarah
Aaj Izhaar Karain Aur Khalish Mit Jaaye
