Nishaat – means happiness.
Here is a couplet from Sahir Ludhianvi’s poem “Radd-e-Amal” (A Reaction) published in Talkhiyaan (Bitterness)

Tujhse milkar udaas rehta hoon

Meeting you gives me great joy
But having met you, I turn despondent again
(English translation from Akshay Manwani’s book “Sahir Ludhianvi: The People’s Poet”)
