Shams – o – qamar means sun and moon

Similarly:

aftaab means sun and mahtaab means moon

Tol-e- Aftaab means sunrise

Gharoob Aftaab means sunset

Given below is an excerpt from a poem by poet Iqbal

Subah Ka Sitara
Morning Star

Lutf-e-Humsayegi-e-Shams-o-Qamar Ko Chorun
Aur Iss Khidmat-e-Paigham-e-Sehar Ko Chorun

Enough of this sun‐and‐moon neighboring glory—
Enough of this office of heralding dawn!

Mere Haq Mein To Nahin Taron Ki Basti Achi
Iss Bulandi Se Zameen Walon Ki Pasti Achi

Worthless to me the abodes of the planets,
Lowly earth‐dwelling is more than these heights
