Usage of Sar-Anjaam in Urdu poetry

I found this persian word was used by all the poets of Bahadur Shah Zafar's time: 

Usage of Saranjaam by Ghalib:

Har zarra-e-khaak-am ze to raqsaan ba-hawaa'e ast
Deewanagi-e-shauq sar anjaam na-daarad.

[Meri khaak ka har zarra tere ishq men raqsaan (naachtaa) hai.
Deewanagi-e-shauq ka sar anjaam (end) nahin hota.]


Usage of Saranjaam by Insha (Insha Allah Khan from Lucknow):

nādāñ kahāñ tarab kā sar-anjām aur ishq
kuchh bhī tujhe shu.ūr hai ārām aur ishq


Usage of Saranjaam by Meer Taqi Meer
Jo yeh dil hai to kya sar anjaam hoga
