Ishq Ka Rutba Lyrics

Samajh sake na, samajh sake na
Samajh sake na log sayane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

Samajh sake na log sayane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

Is duniya ka khel rachaya
Ishq ki khatir aap khuda ne
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

Duniya bhula di ishq ne
Apni mana di ishq ne
Dilwale jal gaye shauk se
Jab aag laga di ishq ne

Ho duniya bhula di ishq ne
Apni mana di ishq ne
Dilwale jal gaye shauk se
Jab aag laga di ishq ne

Jogi bana de ishq ishq
Rogi bana de ishq ishq
Sooli chadhaye ishq ishq
Jeena sikha de ishq ishq
Jisko diya dil jaan bhi usi ko do
Jal ke kahein parwane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

Is duniya ka khel rachaya
Ishq ki khatir aap khuda ne
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

Kissa purana ishq ka
Dushman zamana ishq ka
Jisko laga Majnu bana
Ulta nishana ishq ka

Kissa purana ishq ka
Dushman zamana ishq ka
Jisko laga Majnu bana
Ulta nishana ishq ka

Neendein chura le ishq ishq
Raatein jaga de ishq ishq
Jee ko jalaye ishq ishq
Pagal bana de ishq ishq
Jitne bhi laaya dukh
Shikwa kabhi na kare
Chup hi rahein deewane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

Is duniya ka khel rachaya
Ishq ki khatir aap khuda ne
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane
Ishq ka rutba rutba ishq hi jaane

समझ सके ना, समझ सके ना
समझ सके ना लोग सयाने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने

समझ सके ना लोग सयाने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने

इस दुनिया का खेल रचाया
इश्क की खातिर आप खुदा ने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने

दुनिया भुला दी इश्क ने
अपनी मना दी इश्क ने
दिलवाले जल गए शौक से
जब आग लगा दी इश्क ने

हो दुनिया भुला दी इश्क ने
अपनी मना दी इश्क ने
दिलवाले जल गए शौक से
जब आग लगा दी इश्क ने

जोगी बना दे इश्क इश्क

सूली चढ़ाए इश्क इश्क
जीना सिखा दे इश्क इश्क
जिसको दिया दिल जान भी उसी को दो
जल के कहें परवाने

किस्सा पुराना इश्क का
दुश्मन ज़माना इश्क का
जिसको लगा मजनू बना
उल्टा निशाना इश्क का

नींदें चुरा ले इश्क इश्क
रातें जगा दे इश्क इश्क
जी को जलाए इश्क इश्क
पागल बना दे इश्क इश्क
जितने भी लाया दुःख
शिकवा कभी ना करे
चुप ही रहें दीवाने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने

इस दुनिया का खेल रचाया
इश्क की खातिर आप खुदा ने
इश्क का रुतबा रुतबा इश्क ही जाने
