Shor Karna Humain.. Irfan Siddiqi Ghazal

Shor karna humain be-wajh nahiN aagaya hai

Koi Khanjar rag e gardan ke qareeN aagaya hai

Ko ba koo said chale aate hain gardan daalay

Shahr mein kaun shikari sar e zeeN aagaya hai

Aur kijiyee hunar e khush badanaaN ki taareef

Woh badan aag lagaane ko yahiN aagaya hai

Dil e barbaad zamaane se alag hai shayed

Saara aalam to tere zer e nageeN aagaya hai

Unke nazdeek yeh saari sukhan aaraayi thi

Tujh ko dekha hai to logon ko yaqeeN aagaya hai

Ab kisi Kheema e gah-naaz mein jaate nahi hum

beech mein kab se koi khaanaa nasheeN aagaya hai

(Irfan Siddiqi)

 

Aa Gaya Tha Woh Khush Khesaal Pasand

آ گیا تھا وہ خوش خصال پسند
تھی ہماری بھی کیا کمال پسند

حیف! بد صورتی رویّوں کی
ہائے دل تھا مرا جمال پسند

کیوں بنایا تھا ٹِھیکرا دل کو
کیوں کیا ساغرِ سفال پسند

ٹھیک ہے میں نہیں پسند اُنہیں
لیکن اس درجہ پائمال پسند

سچ نہ کہیے کہ سچ ہے صبر طلب
لوگ ہوتے ہیں اشتعال پسند

ہاں مجھے آج بھی پسند ہے وہ
اس کو کہتے ہیں لازوال پسند

حلم ہے اہلِ علم کا شیوہ
جاہ والوں کو ہے جلال پسند

وصل کو ہجر ، ناگہانی موت
ہجر کو موسمِ وصال پسند

فکرِ دنیا نہیں! مجھے احمدؔ
اپنی مستی اور اپنی کھال پسند

محمد احمدؔ

 

Aa gaya tha wo khush khesaal pasand

Thi hamari bhi kya kamaal pasand

Haif bad-soorati rawayyoN ki

Haaye dil tha mera jamaal pasand

Kyun banaya tha Theekra dil ko

Kyun kiya saaghar e sefaal pasand

Theek hai main nahi pasand unhein

Lekin is darja paayemaal pasand??

Sach na kahiye K sach hai sabr talab

Log hote hain ishte’aal pasand

Haan mujhe aaj bhi pasand hai woh

Is ko kahte hain lazawaal pasand

Hilm hai ahl e ilm ka shewaa

Jaah walon ko hai jalaal pasand

Wasl ko hijr, naagehaani maut

Hijr ko mausam e wesaal pasand

Fikr e duniya nahi mujhe Ahmad

Apni masti aur apni khaal pasand

(Mohammad Ahmad)

 

Mile Bina Hi Bichharne Ke Dar Se Laut Aaye

ملے بنا ہی بچھڑنے کے ڈر سے لوٹ آئے

عجیب خوف میں ہم اس کے در سے لوٹ آئے

نہ ایسے روئیے ناکامی_محبت پر

خوشی منائیے زندہ بھنور سے لوٹ آئے

یہ سوچتے ہوئے بیٹھے ہیں راہ میں رک کر

اُدھر تو گئے ہی نہیں تھے جدھر سے لوٹ آئے

لب اس کے سامنے تھے اور ہم نے چوما نہیں

سمجھ لو پاؤں اٹھے اور در سے لوٹ آئے

ابھی تو وقت ہے سورج کے ڈوبنے میں تو پھر

یہ کیا ہوا کہ پرندے سفر سے لوٹ آئے

کسی بھی طرح یہ دنیا نہ چھوڑ پائے ہم

کہ جب بھی نکلے تری رہ_گزر سے لوٹ آئے

پھر اس نے دیکھا کوئی تارا ٹوٹتے اک رات

پھر ایک روز مسافر سفر سے لوٹ آئے

مرے گزرنے کی افواہ ہی اڑا دے کوئی

کسے خبر کہ وہ جھوٹی خبر سے لوٹ آئے

(kuldeep)

Mile bina hi bichharne ke Dar se laut aaye
Ajeeb khauf mein hum us ke dar se latu aaye

Na aise roiye naakaamii -e- muhabbat per
Khushi manaaiye zinda bhanwar se laut aaye

Yeh sochte hue baithe hain raah mein ruk kar
Udhar to gaye hi nahi the jidhar se laut aaye

Lab uske, saamne the aur hum ne chooma nahi
Samajh lo paon uThay aur dar se laut aaye

Abhi to waqt hai suraj ke doobne mein to phir
Ye kya hua K parinday safar se laut aaye

Kisi bhi tarah ye duniya na chhoR paye hum
K jab bhi nikle teri rahguzar se laut aaye

Phir us ne dekha koi tara toot_te ek raat
Phir ek roz musafir safar se laut aaye

Mere guzarne ki afwaah hi uRaade koi
Kise khabar K woh jhooti khabar se laut aaye

(Kuldeep kumar)

 

Bujha Hai Dil To Gham E Yaar Ab Kahan Tu Bhi

Bujha hai dil to Gham e yaar ab kahan tu bhi
Besaan e naqsh ba deewar ab kahan tu bhi

Baja K chashm e talab bhi hui tahee-keesa
Magar hai rounaq e bazaar ab kahan tu bhi

Hamen bhi kar e jahaN le gaya hai dur bahut
Raha hai dar-pa-e-aazaar ab kahan tu bhi

Hazar suratein ankhoN mein phirti rahti hain
Meri nigaah mein har baar ab kahan tu bhi

Usi ko waada faramosh kyun kahein ae dil
Raha hai saahab e kirdaar ab kahan tu bhi

Meri ghazal mein koi aur kaise dar aayye
Sitam to yeh hai K ae yaar ab kahan tu bhi

(Ahmad Faraz)

 

Yeh Jo Deewanay Se Do Char Nazar Aate Hain

Yeh jo deewanay se do chaar nazar aate hain
In mein kuchh saahab E israar nazar aate hain

Teri mehfil ka bharam rakhte hain so jate hain
Warnaa yeh log to bedaar nazar aate hain

Door tak koi sitaaraa hai na koi jugnoo
Marg E ummeed ke aasaar nazar aate hain

Mere daaman mein shararoN k siwa kuchh bhi nahi
Aap phooloN ke khareedaar nazar aate hain

Kal jinhein chhu nahi sakti thi farishtoN ki nazar
Aaj woh raunaq E baazaar nazar aate hain

Hashr mein kaun gawaahi meri dega ‘Saghar’
Sab tumhaare hi tarafdaar nazar aate hain

Daikh Masti Wajood Ki Meri
june 29, 2017, posted in ilhaami aayaat, irfan sattar

دیکھ مستی وجود کی میری
تا ابد دھوم مچ گئی میری

تُو توجہ اِدھر کرے نہ کرے
کم نہ ہو گی سپردگی میری

دل مرا کب کا ہو چکا پتھر
موت تو کب کی ہو چکی میری

اب تو برباد کر چکے، یہ کہو
کیا اسی میں تھی بہتری میری؟

میرے خوش رنگ زخم دیکھتے ہو؟
یعنی پڑھتے ہو شاعری میری؟

اب تری گفتگو سے مجھ پہ کھُلا
کیوں طبیعت اداس تھی میری

زندگی کا مآل اتنا ہے
زندگی سے نہیں بنی میری

چاند حسرت زدہ سا لگتا ہے
کیا وہاں تک ہے روشنی میری؟

اب میں ہر بات بھول جاتا ہوں
ایسی عادت نہ تھی، کہ تھی میری؟

میری آنکھوں میں آکے بیٹھ گیا
شامِ فرقت اجاڑ دی میری

پہلے سینے میں دل دھڑکتا تھا
اب دھڑکتی ہے بے دلی میری

کیا عجب وقت ہے بچھڑنے کا
دیکھ، رکتی نہیں ہنسی میری

خود کو میرے سپرد کربیٹھا
بات تک بھی نہیں سنی میری

تیرے انکار نے کمال کیا
جان میں جان آگئی میری

میں تو پل بھر نہیں جیا عرفان
عمر کس نے گزار دی میری

~~~~***~~~~

Daikh masti wajood ki mairi
Ta-abad dhoom mach gayi mairi

Tu tawwajo idhar kare, na kare
Kam na hogi supurdagi mairi

Dil mera kab ka ho chuka patthar
Maut to kab ki ho chuki mairi

Ab to barbad kar chuke, ye kaho
Kya isi meiN thi behtari mairi?

Mere khush-rang zakhm daikhte ho
Ya’ani paRhtey ho shayeri mairi?

Ab teri guftugu se mujh pe khula
KyuN tabiyat udaas thi mairi

Zindagi ka ma’al itna hai
Zindagi se nahiN bani mairi

Chaand hasrat-zada sa lagta hai
Kya wahaN tak hai roshni mairi?

Ab maiN har baat bhool jata hooN
Aisi aadat na thi…K thi mairi?

Mairi aankhoN meiN aa ke baiTh gaya
Shaam-e-furqat ujaaR di mairi

Pehle seene meiN dil dhaRakta tha
Ab dhaRakti hai be-dili mairi

Kya ajab waqt hai bichaRney ka
Daikh rukti nahiN hansi mairi

Khud ko maire supurd kar baiTha
Baat tak bhi nahiN suni mairi

Tere inkaar ne kamaal kiya
Jaan meiN jaan aa gayi mairi

MaiN to pal bhar nahiN jiya ‘Irfan’
Umr kis ne guzaar di mairi

(Irfan Sattar)

Wo hu-msafar tha magar us se hum-nawaai na thi

Ke dhoop chhaaNv ka aalam raha, judaai na thi

MuhabbatoN ka safar is tarah bhi guzraa tha

Shikasta dil the musaafir, shikasta-paayi na thi

Adavatein thiN, taghaful tha, ranjisheiN thiN bahut

BichhaRne wale mein sab kuchh tha be-wafaai na thi

BichhaRte waqt un aNkhoN mein thi hamari Ghazal

Ghazal bhi woh, jo kisi ko abhi sunaai na thi

Kise pukaar raha tha woh doobta hua din

Sadaa to aayi thi lekin koi duhaai na thi

Ajeeb hoti hai raah E sukhan bhi, dekh ‘Naseer’

WahaaN bhi aagaye aakhir, jahaaN rasaai na thi

(Naseer Turrabi)

<h3>Bayaan E Haal Mufassal Nahi Hua Ab Tak</h3>

بیانِ حال مفصّل نہیں ہوا اب تک
جو مسئلہ تھا وہی حل نہیں ہوا اب تک

نہیں رہا کبھی میں تیری دسترس سے دور
مِری نظر سے تُو اوجھل نہیں ہوا اب تک

بچھڑ کے تجھ سے یہ لگتا تھا ٹوٹ جاؤں گا
خدا کا شکر ہے پاگل نہیں ہوا اب تک

جلائے رکھا ہے میں نے بھی اک چراغِ امید
تمہارا در بھی مقفّل نہیں ہوا اب تک

مجھے تراش رہا ہے یہ کون برسوں سے
مِرا وجود مکمل نہیں ہوا اب تک

دراز دستِ تمنّا نہیں کیا میں نے
کرم تمہارا مسلسل نہیں ہوا اب تک

————– جہانگیرنایاب

Bayaan E haal mufassal nahi hua ab tak
Jo mas’ala tha wohi hal nahi hua ab tak

Nahi raha kabhi main teri dastaras se door
Meri nazar se too ojhal nahi hua ab tak

BichhaR ke tujh se ye lagta tha tut jaunga
Khuda ka shukr hai paagal nahi hua ab tak

Jalaye rakkha hai main ne bhi ek chiragh E umeed
Tumhara dar bhi muqaffal nahi hua ab tak

Mujhe tarash raha hai ye kaun barson se
Mera wajood mukammal nahi hua ab tak

Daraaz dast E tamanna nahi kiya main ne
Karam tumhara musalsal nahi hua ab tak

(Jahangir Nayaab)

<h3>Bahut Kathin Tha Nibhaana, Nibaah Main Ne Kiya…</h3>

Bahut kaThin tha nibhaana, nibaah main ne kiya

Khud apne aap ko yaani tabaah main ne kiya

Mila tha jab K mujhe tu sufaid-umri mein

Tujhe bhi pyaar magar be-panaah main ne kiya

MaiN tere jism ke ander tha baat karte hue

Tujhe pata bhi nahi jo gunaah main ne kiya

Jo kamsukhan the miyaN wo bhi daad dene lage

Kisi ke she’r pe jab waah waah main ne kiya

Tu mere jurm ki tamheed E be-gunaahi dekh

Koi wakeel na koi gawaah main ne kiya

Tumhare ishq pe woh naaz hai mujhe jaanaaN

K is Ghuroor mein sar kaj-kulaah main ne kiya

Bhuli Bisri Hui Yaadon Mein Kasak Hai Kitni
march 9, 2016, posted in ilhaami aayaat, misc. ghazals
Bhuli bisri hui yaadoN mein kasak hai kitni

Doobti shaam ke atraaf chamak hai kitni

Manzar E gul to bus ek pal k liye Thahra tha

Aati jaati hui saansoN mein mahak hai kitni

Gir ke Too-Ta nahi shayed woh kisi pat-thar per

Uski aawaz mein taabindaa khanak hai kitni

Apni har baat mein woh bhi hai hasinoN jaisa

Us saraapay mein magar nok plak hai kitni

Jaate mausam ne jinhein chhoR diya hai tanha

Mujh mein un TooT-te pattoN ki jhalak hai kitni

(Zubair Rizvi)

<h3>Rona Gana PaR Jata Hai</h3>

Ronaa gaanaa paR jata hai
Ishq to maNhga paR jata hai

TaabereiN aage chalti hain
Khaab akelaa paR jata hai

Main bhi shahr e wafa jaaunga
Kitna kharchaa paR jata hai?

DeewareiN jab girne ko hoN
Dar per jaalaa paR jata hai

Ek din ankheiN thak jati hain
Ek din ronaa paR jata hai

Tu na ho to dil ka aaNgan
Kaisa soona paR jata hai!

(Ghalib Ayaz)

<h3>Pahunch Se Door, Chamakta Saraab Yaani Tu</h3>

پہنچ سے دُور ۔۔ چمکتا سراب ۔۔ یعنی تُو
مجھے دکھایا گیا ایک خواب یعنی تُو

مَیں جانتا ھوں ببُول اور گلاب کے معنی
ببُول یعنی زمانہ ، گلاب یعنی تُو

جمالیات کو پڑھنے کا شوق تھا ، سو مجھے
عطا ھوا ھے مکمل نصاب یعنی تُو

کہاں یہ ذرّہء تاریک بخت یعنی مَیں
کہاں وہ نُور بھرا ماھتاب یعنی تُو

بدل گئی ھے بہت مملکت مرے دِل کی
کہ آگیا ھے یہاں انقلاب یعنی تُو

ھر اِک غزل کو سمجھنے کا وقت ھے نہ دماغ
مجھے بہت ھے فقط انتخاب یعنی تُو

کبھی تو میرے اندھیروں کو روشنی دے گا
گریز کرتا ھوا ماھتاب یعنی تُو

اِدھر ھے کوہ کنِ دشتِ عشق یعنی مَیں
اُدھر ھے حُسنِ نزاکت مآب یعنی تُو

اُجاڑ گُلشنِ دل کو بڑی دعاوں کے بعد
ھوا نصیب گُلِ باریاب یعنی تُو

بہت طویل سہی داستانِ دل ، لیکن
بس ایک شخص ھے لُبِّ لباب یعنی تُو

کبھی کبھی نظر آتا ھے دشتِ ھجراں میں
جنُوں کی پیاس بڑھاتا سراب یعنی تُو

چکھے بغیر ھی جس کا نشہ مُسلسل ھے
مجھے بہم ھے اِک ایسی شراب یعنی تُو

کوئی سوال ھے جس کو جواب مِلتا نہیں
سوال یعنی کہ فارس ، جواب یعنی تُو

رحمان فارس

Pahunch se door, chamakta saraab – yaa’ni tu

Main jaanta hun babul aur gulaab ke maani

Babool yaani zamaana, gulaab – yaa’ni tu

Jamaaliyaat ko paRhne ka shauq tha, so mujhe

Ataa hua hai mukammal nisaab – yaa’ni tu

KahaaN woh noor bhara maahtaab – yaa’ni tu

Badal gayi hai bahut mamlekat mere dil ki

K aagayaa hai yahaaN inqilaab – yaa’ni tu

Har ek Ghazal ko samajhne ka waqt hai na dimaGh

Mujhe bahut hai faqat intekhaab – yaa’ni tu

Kabhi to mere andheroN ko raushni dega

Gurez karta hua maahtaab – yaa’ni tu

Idhar hai koh-kan-e-dasht-e-ishq yaani main

Udhar hai husn E nazaakat ma’aab – yaa’ni tu

UjaaR gulshan E dil ko baRi duaaoN ke baad

Hua naseeb, gul E baaryaab – yaa’ni tu

Bahut taveel sahi daastaan E dil lekin

Bus ek shakhs hai lubb-e-labaab – yaa’ni tu

Kabhi kabhi nazar aata hai dasht E hijraaN mein

JunuN ki pyaas baRhata saraab – yaa’ni tu

Chakhe beghair hi jis ka nasha mukammal hai

Mujhe baham hai ek aisi sharaab – yaa’ni tu

Koi sawaal hai jis ko jawaab milta nahi

Wafa Ke Baab Mein ILzaam E Aashiqui Na Liya
august 5, 2015, posted in ahmad faraz, ilhaami aayaat
Wafaa Ke Baab Mein ILzaam E Aashiqui Na Liyaa

Ke Teri Baat Ki Aur Teraa Naam Bhi Na Liyaa

Khushaa Wo Log K Mehroom E Iltefaat Rahay

Tere Karam Ko Ba Andaaz E Saadgi Na Liyaa

Tumhaaray Baad Kayi Haath Dil Ki Simt Barhay

Hazaar Shukar GirebaaN Ko Ham Ne Si Na Liyaa

Tamaam Masti O Tishnaa-Labii Ke Hangaamay

Kisi Ne Sang Uthaaya, Kisi Ne Meenaa Liyaa

‘Faraz’ Zulm Hai Itni Khud Aitmaadi Bhi

Ke Raat Bhi Thi Andheri, Charaagh Bhi Na Liyaa

(Ahmad Faraz)

 

Darwaza Jo Khola To Nazar Aaye Khare Woh

Darwaza Jo Khola To Nazar Aaye KhaRe Woh
Hairat Hai Mujhe Aaj Kidhar Bhool PaRe Woh

Bhoolaa Nahi Dil Hijr Ke Lamhaat KaRe Woh
Ratein to BaRi ThiN Hi Magar Din Bhi BaRe Woh

KyuN Jan Pe Ban Aai Hai BigRa Hai Agar Woh
Us Ki To Ye Aadat K HawaaoN Se LaRe Woh

KyuN Jan Pe Ban Aai Hai Bigra Hai Agar Woh
Us Ki To Ye Aadat K Hawaon Se LaRe Woh

Alfaz Thay Us Ke K Bahaaron K Payaamaat
Khushbu Si Barasne Lagi Youn Phool JhaRe Woh

Har Shakhs Mujhe Tujh Se Juda Karne Ka KhaaahaN
Sun Paye Agar Aik To Das Ja K JaRe Woh

Bachche Ki Tarah Chand Ko Choone Ki Tamanna
Dil Ko Koi Shai De De To Kia Kia Na ARe Woh

ToofaaN Hai To Kya Gham Mujhe Awaz To Dejiye
Kya BhooL Gaye Aap Mere Kachche GhaRe Woh!

ZamiiN kaisi lagegi, aasman kaisa lagega
Hamare baad tumko ye jahaaN kaisa lagega

Thake haare hue suraj ki bhigi raushni men
HawaaoN se ulajhta baadbaaN kaisa lagega

Jame qadmon ke niche phisalti jaegi ret
Bikhar jaegi jab umr-e-rawaaN kaisa lagega

Isi miTTi men mil jaegi punji umr bhar ki
Giregi jis ghaRi diwar-e-jaaN kaisa lagega

Bahut itra rahe ho dil ki bazi jeetne par
Ziyan baad az ziyan baad az ziyan kaisa lagega

Wo jis ke baad hogi ek musalsal be-neyazi
GhaRi bhar ka wo sab shor o fughan kaisa lagega

Abhi se kya bataen marg-e-majnun ki KHabar par
Suluk-e-kucha-e-na-mehrbaaN kaisa lagega

Batao to sahi ai jaan-e-jaan kaisa lagega
Sitaron se bhara ye aasman kaisa lagega

Dil Girafta Hi Sahi Bazm Sajaali Jaye
march 4, 2015, posted in ahmad faraz, ilhaami aayaat
دل گرفتہ ہی سہی بزم سجالی جائے

یادِ جاناں سے کوہئ شام نہ خالی جائے

رفتہ رفتہ یہی زنداں میں بدل جاتے ہیں

اب کسی شہر کی بنیاد نہ ڈالی جائے

مصحفِ رُخ ہے کسی کا کہ بیاضِ حافظ

ایسے چہرے سے کبھی فال نکالی جائے

وہ مروّت سے ملاِ ہے تو جھکا دوں گردن

میرےدشمن کا کوئی وار نہ خالی جائے

بے نوا شہر کا سایہ ہےمرے دل پہ فراز

کس طرح سے مری آشفتہ خیالی جا ئے

احمد فراز

Dil giraftaa hi sahii bazm sajaali jaye

Yaad E janaN se koi shaam na khaali jaye

Rafta-rafta yahi zandaaN mein badal jate hain

Ab kisi shahr ki buniyaad na daali jaye

Mushaf E rukh hai kisi ka K beyaaz E Hafiz

Aise chehre se kabhi faal nikaali jaye

Wo murawwat se mila hai to jhukadun gardan

Mere dushman ka koi waar na khaali jaaye

Be-nawaa shahr ka saaya hai mere dil pe ‘Faraz’

Kis tarah se meri aashufta khyaali jaye

Ab Mehfil E Ghazal Mein Ghazal Aashna Hai Kaun?

 

Renown Urdu poet Dr. Kalim Ajiz passed away yesterday. It is a tribute to him from all poetry lovers.

اب محفلِ غزل میں غزل آشنا ہے کون؟
مانا کہ ایک ہم ہیں، مگر دُوسرا ہے کون؟
قاتل نے جب پُکارا کہ اہلِ وفا ہے کون؟
سب لوگ جب خموش رہے، بول اُٹھا ہے کون؟
تُم اپنی انجُمن کا ذرا جائزہ تو لو
کہنے کو تو چراغ بہت تھے، جلا ہے کون؟
دعویٰ سُخن کا سب کو ہے لیکن تمام عُمر
اک دشمنِ سخن سے مُخاطب رہا ہے کون؟
سب دیکھتے جدھر ہیں اُدھر کیا ہے؟ کچھ نہیں!
ہم دیکھتے جِدھر ہیں اُدھر دیکھتا ہے کون؟
تصویرِ میکدہ میری غزلوں میں دیکھئیے
سنبھلا رہا ہے کون، نشے میں گِرا ہے کون؟
مَیں ایک نقشِ پا ہُوں مگر مَیں بتاؤنگا
اِس راہ سے جو گزرا ہے وہ قافلہ ہے کون!
سب دوست ایک ایک کرکے مُجھے چھوڑتے گئے
دُشمن بھی دنگ ہے کہ یہ تنہا کھڑا ہے کون
گھر بھی ترا، گلی بھی تری، شہر بھی ترا
جو چاہے جِس کو کہہ دے، تُجھے روکتا ہے کون؟
عاجؔز یہ کِس سے بات کرو ہو غزل میں تُم؟
پردہ اُٹھاؤ ہم بھی تو دیکھیں چُھپا ہے کون؟

~~~~~~~***~~~~~~~

Ab Mehfil E Ghazal mein Ghazal aashna hai kaun?

Maanaa K aek hum hain magar dusraa hai kaun?

Qaatil ne jab pukaara K ahl e wafaa hai kaun?

Sab log jab khamosh rahe bol uTha hai kaun?

Tum apni anjuman ka zaraa jaayezaaH to lo

Kahne ko to chiraagh bahut the, jala hai kaun?

Daa’va sukhan ka sab ko hai lekin tamaam umr

Ek dushman e sukhan se mukhatib raha hai kaun?

Sab dekhte jidhar hain udha kya hai kuchh nahi

Hum dekhte jidhar hain udhar dekhta hai kuan?

Tasveer e maikada meri ghazloN mein dekhiye

Sanbhla raha hai kaun, nashe mein gira hai kaun?

Main ek naqsh e paa hun magar main bataunga

Is raah se jo guzra hai woh qaafila hai kaun?

Sab dost aek ek kar ke mujhe chhoRte gaye

Dushman bhi dang hai k ye tanha khaRa hai kaun?

Ghar bhi tera, gali bhi teri, shahr bhi tera

Jo chahe jis ko kah de tujhe rokta hai kaun?

‘Aajiz’ ye kis se baat karo ho ghazal mein tum?

Parda uThao, hum bhi to dekhien chhupa hai kaun?

(Kalim Ajiz)

 

Peet Karna To Hum Se Nibhaana Sajan…

 

Peet karna to hum se nibhaana sajan, hum be pahlay hi din tha kahaa na sajan

Tum hi majboor ho, hum hi mukhtaar hain, khair maana sajan, yeh bhi maana sajan

Ab jo hone ke Qissay sabhi ho chuke, hum tumhein kho chuke, tum humein kho chuke

Aagay dil ki naa baatoN mein aanaa sajan, K yeh dil hai sadaa ka diwaana sajan

Yeh bhi sach hai na kuchh baat ji ki bani, sooni raatoN mein dekha kiye chaandni

Per yeh sauda hai hum ko puraanaa sajan, aur jeene ka apnay bahaana sajan

Shahr ke log achchhe hain hum-dard hain, per hamaari suno hum jahaaN-gard hain

DaaGh-e-dil na kisi ko dikhaana sajan, yeh zamaana nahi woh zamaana sajan

Us ko muddat hui sabr kartay hue, aaj koo-e-wafaa se guzartay hue

Poochhh kar is gadaa ka thikaana sajan, apne ‘Insha’ ko bhi dekh aana sajan

Rooh Mein Le Ke ZamaanoN ki Thakan Aaye The Hum
september 16, 2014, posted in abhishek shukla, ilhaami aayaat
Rooh meiN le ke zamaanoN ki thakan aaye the ham

Raat yuN tha k sar e shahr e badan aaye the ham

Khush-libaasi thi jahaaN shart usi mehfil meiN

Log kahte haiN tera hijr pahan aaye the ham

Yaad to hoga khili dhoop ke maanind ik roz

Rauzan E jaaN se teri rooh meiN chhan aaye the ham

Teri aaNkhoN meiN kabhi aaye the hairat ki tarah

Tere maathe pa’ kabhi misl e shikan aaye the ham

Tumko dekha to mili quvvat e goyaayi hameiN

Varna khaamosh the jab shahr e sukhan aaye the ham

Ye to accha hua jee khol ke roya wo hameiN

Kaisa bacchoN ki tarah dhool meiN san aaye the ham

Usne kuchh aisa banaya tha ki bigde hue the

Usne kuchh aisaa bigada tha ki ban aaye the ham

Woh Dushman E Jaan, Jaan Se Pyaara Bhi Kabhi Tha

Wo dushman-E-jaN, jaan se pyaara bhi kabhi tha

Ab kis se kahaiN, koii humaara bhi kabhi tha

Utra hai rag-O-pai mein to dil kaT sa gaya hai

Yeh zehr-E-judaai K gawaara bhi kabhi tha

Har dost jahaN abr-E-gurezaaN ki tarah hai

Ye shehar kabhi shehr humaara bhi kabhi tha

Titli ke ta’aaqub mein koi phool sa bachcha

Aisaa hi koi khaab humaara bhi kabhi tha

Ab agle zamaane ke milen log toh puchheiN

Jo haal humara hai tumhaara bhi kabhi tha?

Har bazm mein hum ne usay afsurda hi dekha

kahte hain ‘Faraz’ anjuman-aara bhi kabhi tha

(Ahmad Faraz)

 

Ajab Hai Rang E Chaman Ja Ba Ja Udaasi Hai

عجب ہے رنگ ِ چمن، جا بجا اُداسی ہے

مہک اُداسی ہے، باد ِ صبا اُداسی ہے

نہیں نہیں، یہ بھلا کس نے کہہ دیا تم سے؟

میں ٹھیک ٹھاک ہوں، ہاں بس ذرا اُداسی ہے

میں مبتلا کبھی ہوتا نہیں اُداسی میں

میں وہ ہوں جس میں کہ خود مبتلا اُداسی ہے

طبیب نے کوئی تفصیل تو بتائی نہیں

بہت جو پوچھا تو اتنا کہا، اُداسی ہے

گداز ِ قلب خوشی سے بھلا کسی کو ملا؟

عظیم وصف ہی انسان کا اداسی ہے

شدید درد کی رو ہے رواں رگ ِ جاں میں

بلا کا رنج ہے، بے انتہا اُداسی ہے

فراق میں بھی اُداسی بڑے کمال کی تھی

پس ِ وصال تو اُس سے سِوا اداسی ہے

تمہیں ملے جو خزانے، تمہیں مبارک ہوں

مری کمائی تو یہ بے بہا اُداسی ہے

چھپا رہی ہو مگر چھپ نہیں رہی مری جاں

جھلک رہی ہے جو زیر ِ قبا اُداسی ہے

دماغ مجھ کو کہاں کائناتی مسئلوں کا

مرا تو سب سے بڑا مسئلہ اُداسی ہے

فلک ہے سر پہ اُداسی کی طرح پھیلا ہُوا

زمیں نہیں ہے مرے زیر ِ پا، اُداسی ہے

غزل کے بھیس میں آئی ہے آج محرم ِ درد

سخن کی اوڑھے ہوئے ہے ردا، اُداسی ہے

عجیب طرح کی حالت ہے میری بے احوال

عجیب طرح کی بے ماجرا اُداسی ہے

وہ کیف ِ ہجر میں اب غالباً شریک نہیں

کئی دنوں سے بہت بے مزا اُداسی ہے

وہ کہہ رہے تھے کہ شاعر غضب کا ہے عرفان

ہر ایک شعر میں کیا غم ہے، کیا اُداسی ہے

Ajab hai rang e chaman, jaa-ba-ja udaasi hai

Mahek udaasi hai, baad-e-sabaa udaasi hai

Nahi nahi yeh bhala kis ne kah diya tumse

MaiN thik thak hun, haaN bus zara udaasi hai

MaiN mubtila kabhi hota nahi udaasi mein

MaiN wo hun jis mein K khud mubtila udaasi hai

Tabeeb ne koi tafseel to bataayi nahi

Bahut jo poochhha to itna kaha udaasi hai

Gudaaz Qalb khushi se bhala kisi ko mila?

Azeem wasf hi insaan ka udaasi hai

Shadeed dard ki rau hai ravaaN rag-e-jaaN mein

Bala ka ranj hai be inteha udaasi hai

Firaaq mein bhi udaasi baRe kamaal ki thi

Pas-e-visaal to us se siwaa udaasi hai

TumheN mile jo khazaane tumhein mubrak hoN

Meri kamaayi to yeh be-bahaa udaasi hai

Chhupa rahi ho magar chhup nahi rahi meri jaaN

Jhalak rahi hai jo zer-e-qaba udaasi hai

DimaaGh mujh ko kahaaN kaainaati mas’aloN ka

Mera to sab se baRa mas’alaa udaasi hai

Falak hai sar pe udaasi ki tarah phaila hua

ZameeN nahi mere zer-e-paa udaasi hai

Ghazal ke bhes mein aayi hai aaj mahram-e-dard

Sukhan ki oRhe hue hai ridaa, udaasi hai

Ajeeb tarh ki haalat hai meri be-ahwaal

Ajeeb tarha ki be-maajraa udaasi hai

Wo kah rahe the k shair ghazab ka hai ‘Irfan’

Har aek she’r mein kya Gham hai kya udaasi hai

(Poet:Irfan Sattar)

Taab tujh meiN mah-E-kaamil kabhi aisii to na thi

Ab ki jo raah-E-muhabbat meiN uThaayi takliif
Sakht hoti hameN manzil kabhi aisii to na thi

Paa-E-kubaaN koi zindaaN meN naya hai majnuN
Aatii aavaaz-E-salaasil kabhi aisii to na thi

Nigah-E-yaar ko ab kyuuN hai taGaaful ae dil
Wo tere haal se Ghaafil kabhi aisii to na thi

Chashm-E-qaatil meri dushman thii hamesha lekin
Jaisii ab ho gayi qaatil kabhi aisii to na thi

Kyaa sabab tu jo bigaDta hai ‘Zafar’ se har bar
Khoo teri huur-shamaail kabhii aisii to na thi

Dil Tujhe Naaz Hai Jis Shakhs Ki …
august 4, 2014, posted in ilhaami aayaat, misc. ghazals
دل تجھے ناز ہے جس شخص کی دلداری پر
دیکھ اب وہ بھی اُتر آیا اداکاری پر

میں نے دشمن کو جگایا تو بہت تھا لیکن
احتجاجاً نہیں جاگا مری بیداری پر

آدمی، آدمی کو کھائے چلا جاتا ہے
کچھ تو تحقیق کرو اس نئی بیماری پر

کبھی اِس جرم پہ سر کاٹ دئے جاتے تھے
اب تو انعام دیا جاتا ہے غدّاری پر

تیری قربت کا نشہ ٹوٹ رہا ہے مجھ میں
اس قدر سہل نہ ہو تو مری دشواری پر

مجھ میں یوں تازہ ملاقات کے موسم جاگے
آئینہ ہنسنے لگا ہے مری تیاری پر

کوئی دیکھے بھرے بازار کی ویرانی کو
کچھ نہ کچھ مفت ہے ہر شے کی خریداری پر

بس یہی وقت ہے سچ منہ سے نکل جانے دو
لوگ اُتر آئے ہیں ظالم کی طرف داری پر

Dil tujhe naaz hai jis shakhs ki dildaari par
Dekh! ab woh bhi utar aayaa adaakaari par

MaiN ne dushman ko jagayaa to bahut tha lekin
Ehtejaajan nahiN jaaga meri bedaari par!!

Aadmi aadmi ko khyaaye chala jaataa hai
Kuchh to tahqeeq karo is nayi beemari par

Kabhi is jurm pe sar kaaT diye jaate the
Ab to in’aam diya jata hai Ghaddaari par

Teri qurbat ka nasha TooT raha hai mujh mein
Is qadar sahl na ho tu meri dushwaari par

Mujh mein yuN taaza mulaqat ke mausam jaage
Aayiina haNsne lagaa hai meri taiyyari par

Koi dekhe bhare baazaar ki veerani ko
Kuch na kuch muft hai har shai ki kharidari par

Bus yahi waqt hai sach munh se nikal jaane do
Log utar aaye hain zaalik ki tarafdaari par

Gaye Baras Ki Eid Ka Din …

Gaye baras ki eid ka din kya achchha tha

ChaaNd ko dekh ke uskaa chehra dekha tha

Feza mein ‘Keats’ ke lehje ki nermahat thi

Mausam apne rang mein ‘Faiz’ ka misraa tha

Duaa ke be-aawaaz, uloohi lamhoN mein

Woh lamhaa bhi kitna dilkashh lamha tha

Hath uTha ker jab aNkhoN hi aNkhoN mein

Us ne mujh ko apne Rab se maaNgaa tha

Phir mere chehre ko haathoN mein le ker

Kitne pyar se mera maatha chooma tha!

Hawa! kuch aj ki shab ka tu ahwaal suna

Kya woh apni chhat per aaj akela tha?

Ya koi mere jeisi saath thi, aur uss ne

Chand ko dekh ke us ka chehra dekhaa tha?

(Parveen Shakir)

 

Wahshat E JaaN Ki Pazeeraayi Na Kar Paayega Tu

 

Wahshat e jaaN ki pazeeraayi na kar paayega tu
Khud ko itnaa kabhi sahraayi na kar paayega tu

HaNstaa gaata hua ik shahr hai mujhmeiN maujood
Mere atraaf meiN tanhaayi na kar paayegaa tu

Mujhko dekhegaa baharhaal junooN karte hue
HaaN meri hauslaa-afzaayi na kar paayega tu

Abke lagta hai K beemaar huN maiN sach-much ka
Abke lagtaa hai maseehaayi na kar paayega tu

AaRay aa jaayegii har baar meri naadaani
Mere aage koi daanaayi na kar paayega tu

Khair duniyaa ka bhalaa tujhse kahaaN mumkin hai
Aur mere saath bhi acchaayi na kar paayega tu

MaiN wo patthar huN K jismeiN koi taaseer nahiN
Mukhtasar ye K jabeeNsaayi na kar paayega tu

Ab to har dasht meri zaat ka partau hai yahaaN
Is se badhkar mujhe saudaayi na kar paayega tu

Tujhse mansoob haiN ash’aar kuchh aise bhi mere
Ghaaliban jinki pazeeraayi na kar paayega tu

Siskiyaan Leti Hui Ghamgeen Hawaao
may 6, 2014, posted in ilhaami aayaat, qateel shifayi

سسکیاں لیتی ہوئی غمگین ہواؤ، چُپ رہو
سو رہے ہیں درد، ان کو مت جگاؤ، چُپ رہو

رات کا پتھر نہ پگھلے گا شعاعوں کے بغیر
صبح ہونے تک نہ بولو ہم نواؤ ، چُپ رہو

بند ہیں سب میکدے، ساقی بنے ہیں محتسب
اے گرجتی گونجتی کالی گھٹاؤ ، چُپ رہو

تم کو ہے معلوم آخر کون سا موسم ہے یہ
فصلِ گل آنے تلک اے خوشنواؤ ، چُپ رہو

سوچ کی دیوار سے لگ کر ہیں غم بیٹھے ہوئے
دل میں بھی نغمہ نہ کوئی گنگناؤ ، چُپ رہو

چھٹ گئے حالات کے بادل تو دیکھا جائے گا
وقت سے پہلے اندھیرے میں نہ جاو ، چُپ رہو

دیکھ لینا، گھر سے نکلے گا نہ ہمسایہ کوئی!
اے مرے یارو، مرے درد آشناؤ ، چُپ رہو

کیوں شریک غم بناتے ہو کسی کو اے قتیلؔ!
اپنی سولی اپنے کاندھے پر اُٹھاؤ ، چُپ رہو

Siskiyaan Leti Hui GhamgeeN Hawao, Chup Raho
So Rahe Hain Dard, In Ko Mat Jagao, Chup Raho

Raat Ka Pat_thar Na Pighlega Shuaa’oN Ke Baghair
Subaah Hone Tak Na Bolo Ham Nawao, Chup Raho

Band Hain Sab Mai Kaday, Saaqi Bane Hain Muhtasib
Ae Garajtii Goonjti Kaali Ghataao,Chup Raho

Tum Ko Hai Maaloom Aakhir Koun Sa Mausam Hai Ye
Fasl-e-Gul Aane Talak Ae Khushnawao, Chup Raho

Soch Ki Deewaar Se Lag Kar Hain Gham Baithay Hue
Dil Mein Bhi Naghma Na Koi Gungunao, Chup Raho

ChhaT Gaye Haalaat Ke Baadal To Dekha JaayeGa
Waqt Se Pehle Andhaire Mein Na Jao, Chup Raho

Kiun Sharik-e-Gham Banate Ho Kisi Ko Ae ‘Qateel’
Apni Sooli Apne Kaandhe Per Uthaao, Chup Raho

Shehr E Gul Ke Khas O Khaashaak Se Khauf Aata Hai
april 17, 2014, posted in iftekhar arif, ilhaami aayaat
شہر گل کے خس و خاشاک سے خوف آتا ہے
جس کا وارث ہوں اسی خاک سے خوف آتا ہے

شکل بننے نہیں پاتی کہ بگڑ جاتی ہے
نئ مٹی کو چاک سے خوف آتا ہے

وقت نے ایسے گھمائے افق ، آفاق کہ بس
محور گردش سفاک سے خوف آتا ہے

یہی لہجہ تھا کہ معیار سخن ٹھہرا تھا
اب اسی لہجئہ بے باک سے خوف آتا ہے

آگ جب آگ سے ملتی ہے تو لو دیتی ہے
خاک کو خاک کی پوشاک سے خوف آتا ہے

قامتِ جاں کو خوش آیا تھا کبھی خلعتِ عشق
اب اسی جامئہ صد چاک سے خوف آتا ہے

کبھی افلاک سے نالوں کے جواب آتے تھے
ان دنوں عالم افلاک سے خوف آتا ہے

رحمتِ سیدِ لولاک پہ کامل ایمان
امتِ سیدِ لولاک سے خوف آتا ھے

Shehr-e-gul ke khas-o-khaashaak se khauf aata hai
Jis ka waaris huN, usi khaak se khauf aata hai

Shakl ban_ne nahi paatii K bigaR jaati hai !!
Nayi miTTi ko naye chaak se khauf aata hai

WaQt ne aise ghumaaye ufaQ – aafaaQ K bus
Mahvar-e-gardish-e-saffaak se khauf aata hai

Yahi lehjaa tha K me’yaar-e-sukhan Thahra tha
Ab isi lehjaa -e- be-baak se khauf aata hai

Aag jab aag se miltii hai to lau deti hai
Khaak ko khaak ki poshaak se khauf aata hai

Qamat-e-jaN ko khush aya tha kabhi khil’at-e-ishq
Ab isi jaama-e-sad-chaak se khauf aata hai

Kabhi aflaak se naaloN ke jawaab aate the
In dinoN aalam-e-aflaak se khauf aata hai

Rahmat-e-syed-e-laulaak pe kaamil eemaan
Ummat-e-syed-e-laulaak se khauf aata hai

Kaash Ek Aisi Shab Aae Jab Tu Ho Pehlu Mein

 

کاش اک ایسی شب آئے جب تُو ہو پہلو میں

سانسیں سانسوں میں مل جائیں، آنسو آنسو میں

 

یاد کی لَو سے آئینے کا چہرہ ہو پُرنور

نہا رہی ہو رات کی رانی خواب کی خوشبو میں

 

نیند مری لے کر چلتی ہے شام ڈھلے، اور پھر

رات الجھ کر رہ جاتی ہے اُس کے گیسو میں

 

رہے ہمارے ہونٹوں پر اک نام کا دن بھر ورد

شب بھر دل کی رحل پہ رکھا اک چہرہ چومیں

 

آپ اپنی ہی ضَو سے جگمگ کرنا ساری رات

دھڑک رہا ہو جیسے میرا دل اِس جگنو میں

 

بولتے رہنا ہنستے رہنا بے مقصد بے بات

جیسے دل آہی جائے گا میرے قابو میں

 

ویسے تو اکثر ہوتا تھا ہلکا، میٹھا درد

اب تو جیسے آگ بھری ہو یاد کے چاقو میں

 

ایک دعا تھی جس نے بخشی حرف کو یہ تاثیر

یہ تاثیر کہاں ہوتی ہے جادو وادو میں

 

جب مجھ کو بھی آجائے گا چلنا وقت کے ساتھ

آجائے گی کچھ تبدیلی میری بھی خُو میں

 

تم کیا سمجھو تم کیا جانو کون ہوں میں کیا ہوں

وہ اقلیم الگ ہے جس میں ہیں میری دھومیں

 

قحط ِ سماعت کے عالم میں یہی ہے اک تدبیر

خود ہی شعر کہیں اور خود ہی پڑھ پڑھ کر جھومیں

 

لوگ ہمیں سمجھیں تو سمجھیں بے حرف و بے صوت

ہم شامل تو ہو نہیں سکتے ہیں اِس ہا ہُو میں

 

جن کے گھر ہوتے ہیں وہ گھر جاتے ہیں عرفان

آپ بھی شب بھر مت ایسے ان سڑکوں پر گھومیں

kaash ik aisi shab aae jab tu ho pehlu meiN
SaNsaiN saNsoN meiN mil jayaiN, aansu aansu meiN

Yaad ki lau se aayiney ka chehraa ho pur-noor
Naha rahi ho raat ki raani khwaab ki khushbu meiN

Neend meri le kar chalti hai shaam Dhaley aur phir
Raat ulajh kar reh jati hai us ke gesu meiN

Rahe hamare honToN par ik naam ka din bhar wird
Shab bhar dil ki rehl pe rakkha ik chehra choomaiN

Aap hi apni zau se jagmag karna saari raat
DhaRak raha ho jaisey maira dil is jugnu meiN

Bolte rehna, hanste rehna, be maqsad, be baat
Jaise aa hi jaae ga dil maire qabu meiN

Waisey to aksar hota tha halka meeTha dard
Ab to jaisey aag bhari hai yaad ke chaaqu meiN

Aik dua thi jis ney bakhshi harf ko ye taaseer
Ye taseer kahaN hoti hai jadu wadu meiN

Jab mujh ko bhi aa jae ga chalna waqt ke sath
Aa jaae gi kuch tabdeeli mairi bhi khu meiN

Tum kya samjho tum kya jano kon huN kya huN maiN
Woh iqleem alag hai jis meiN haiN mairi dhoomaiN

Qeht-e-sama’at ke aalam meiN yehi hai ik tadbeer
Khud hi shair kahaiN aur khud hi paRh paRh kar jhumaiN

Log hamaiN samjhaiN to samjhaiN be-harf-o-be-saut

Aap bhi shab bhar mat aise in saRkoN par ghoomaiN

Harf Lafzon Ki Taraf Lafz Ma’aani Ki Taraf

 

Harf lafzoN ki taraf lafz ma’aani ki taraf
Laut aaye sabhi kirdaar kahaani ki taraf

Hosh kho baitha tha maiN zardi e jaaN se aur phir
Ik hawaa aayi uRaa le gayi paani ki taraf

Pahle misre meiN tujhe soch liya ho jisne
Jana paRtaa hai use misra e saani ki taraf

Dil meiN ik shakhs ki ummid ka marna tha ki bas
DhaRkaneiN khiNchne lagiN marsiya-khaani ki taraf

Chashm e veeraaN ko baharhaal khushi hai iski
Khaab raaghib to hue naql e makaani ki taraf

Jab fizaa uske badan-rang ki ho jaayegi
Ghaur se dekhenge ham apni jawaani ki taraf

Ham to ik umr hui apni taraf aa bhi chuke
Aur dil hai ki usi dushman e jaani ki taraf

Us se kahnaa ki dhuaaN dekhne laayaq hogaa
Aag pahne hue jaaoonga maiN paani ki taraf

Dil wo dariya hai mire seena e khaali meiN k ab
Dhyaan jata hi nahiN jiski rawaani ki taraf

Uthne lagti hai mire jism se ik boo e firaaq
Raat dekhooN jo kabhi raat ki raani ki taraf

Hum Hain Awaaraa Soo Ba Soo Logo

ہم ہیں آوارہ سُو بسُو لوگو
جیسے جنگل میں رنگ و بُو لوگو

ساعتِ چند کے مسافر سے
کوئی دم اور گفتگو لوگو

تھے تمہاری طرح کبھی ہم لوگ
گھر ہمارے بھی تھے کبھو لوگو

ایک منزل سے ہو کے آئے ہیں
ایک منزل ہے رُوبُرو لوگو

وقت ہوتا تو آرزو کرتے
جانے کس شے کی آرزو لوگو

تاب ہوتی تو جتسجُو کرتے
اب تو مایوس جستجُو لوگو

ابنِ انشا
Hum haiN aawaaraa soo-ba-soo logo

Jaise jangal mein rang-o-boo logo

Saa’at -e- chand ke musaafir se

Koi dam aur guftagoo logo !!

The tumhaari tarah kabhi hum bhi

Ghar hamaare bhi the kabhoo logo

Aek manzil se ho ke aaye haiN

Aek manzil ke roo-ba-roo logo

Waqt hotaa to aarzoo kartay !!

Jaane kis shai ki aarzoo logo

Taab hoti to justajoo kartay

Ab to maayoos-e-justajoo logo

Khaab ke phooloN ki taa’beereiN puraani hogayiN

Us ki tasviireiN bhi auraaQ e Khazaani hogayiN

Dil bhar aaya kaGhaz-e-khaali ki surat dekh kar

Jin ko kahna tha woh sab bateiN zabaani hogayiN

Ghar jab bana liya, tere dar par kahe beGhair
Jaanega ab bhi tu na mera ghar kahe beGhair

Kahte hain, jab rahi na mujhe taqat-e-sukhan
JanuN kisi k dil ki main kyunkar kahe beGhair

Kaam us se a paRa hai K jisaka jahan mein
Leway na koi naam sitamagar kahe beGhair

Ji mein hi kuch nahi hai hamare wagarna ham
Sar jaaye ya rahe, na rahen par kahe beGhair

ChoRunga main na us but-e-kafir ka poojana
ChoRe na khalq go mujhe kafir kahe beGhair

Maqsad hai naz-o-Ghamza wale guftagu mein kaam
Chalta nahi hai, dashna-o-khanjar kahe beGhair

Har chand ho mushahida-e-haq ki guftagu
Banti nahi hai bada-o-saaGhar kahe beGhair

Behra hun main to chahiye duna ho iltefaat
Sunta nahi hun baat muqarrar kahe beGhair

‘Ghalib’ na kar huzur mein tu bar-bar arz
Zahir hai tera hal sab un par kahe beGhair

Ab Junun Kab Kisi Ke Bus Mein Hai

Haal us Said ka, sunaaiye kya!
Jis ka saiyyad khud qafas meiN hai

Kya hai gar zindagi ka bus na chala
Zindagi kab kisi ke bus meiN hai?

Ghair se rahiyo tu zara hushiyaar
Woh tere jism ki hawas meiN hai!

Ghubaar E Tab’ Mein Thori Bahut Kami Ho Jaye
january 23, 2014, posted in ilhaami aayaat, misc. ghazals

غبارِ طبع میں تھوڑی بہت کمی ہو جائے
تمھارا نام بھی سُن لوں تو روشنی ہو جائے

ذرا خیال کرو، وقت کس قدر کم ہے
میں جو قدم بھی اُٹھا لوں ، وہ آخری ہو جائے

قیامتیں تو ہمیشہ گزرتی رہتی ہیں
عذاب اُس کے لئے جس کو آگہی ہو جائے

گزر رہے ہیں مرے رات دن لڑائی میں
میں سوچتا ہوں کہ مجھ کو شکست ہی ہو جائے

عجیب شخص ہے تبدیل ہی نہیں ہوتا
جو اُس کے ساتھ رہے چند دن وہی ہو جائے

مرا نصیب کنارہ ہو یا سمندر ہو
جو ہو گئی ہے، تو لہروں سے دشمنی ہو جائے

تمام عمر تو دوری میں کٹ گئی میری
نہ جانے کیا ہو؟ اگر اس سے دوستی ہو جائے

بس ایک وقت میں ساری بلائیں ٹوٹ پڑیں
اگر سفر یہ کٹھن ہے تو رات بھی ہو جائے

میں سو نہ جاؤں جو آسانیاں میسر ہوں
میں مر نہ جاؤں اگر ختم تشنگی ہو جائے

نہیں ضرور کہ اونچی ہو آسمانوں سے
یہی بہت ہے زمیں پاؤں پر کھڑی ہو جائے

تمام عمر سمٹ آئے ایک لمحے میں
میں چاہتا ہوں کہ ہونا ہے جو ابھی ہو جائے

وہی ہوں میں وہی امکاں کے کھیل ہیں شہزادؔ
کبھی فرار بھی ممکن نہ ہو، کبھی ہو جائے

شہزادؔ احمد
Ghubaar-e-tab’ mein thoRi bahut kami ho jaye
Tumhaara naam bhi sun lun to roushni ho jaye

Zara khayaal karo! waqt kis Qadar kam hai
MaiN jo Qadam bhi uThaluN woh aakhri ho jaye

QaymaateiN to hameshaa guzartii rahtii haiN
‘azaab us ke liye jis ko aa-gahee ho jaye

Guzar rahe haiN mere raat din laRaayii meiN
MaiN sochta huN K mujh ko shikast hi ho jaye

Ajeeb shaksh hai! tabdeeel hi nahii hotaa!
Jo us ke saath rahe chand din, wohii ho jaye

Meraa naseeb kinaaraa ho yaa samundar ho
Jo hogayii hai to lahroN se dushmani ho jaye

Tamaam umr to doori mein kaT gayi merii!!
Na jaane kya ho? agar uss se dosti ho jaye

Bus aek waqt mein saari balaayeiN TooT paRiN
Agar safar ye kaThin hai to raat bhi ho jaye

MaiN so na jauN, jo aasaaniyaaN muyassar hoN
MaiN mar na jauN, agar khatm tishnagi ho jaye

Nahi zaroor, K ooNchii ho aasmaanoN se!!
Yehi bahut hai zamiiN paoN par khaRi ho jaye

Tamaam umr simaT aayi hai ek lamhay meiN
MaiN chahta hun K hona hai jo abhi ho jaye

Wohi huN maiN! wohi imkaN ke khel haiN Shahzad
Kabhi feraar bhi mumkin na ho, kabhi ho jaye

Ojhal Sahi Nigaah Se, Dooba Nahi Hun Main

Ojhal sahi nigah se, dooba nahi huN maiN

Ae raat khabar-dar K hara nahi huN maiN

Darpesh subh-o-sham yehi kashmakash hai ab

Uska banuN maiN kaise K apna nahi huN maiN

Mujh ko farishta hone ka daawa nhi magar

Jitna bura samjhte ho utna nahi huN maiN

Is tarah pher pher k baateiN na keejiye

Lehje ka rukh samajhta hu bacha nahi huN maiN

Mumkin nahi hai mujh se ye tarz-e-munafqat

Dunya tere mizaj ka bandaa nahi huN maiN

Yeh Aansu Be Sabab Jaari Nahi Hai

 

Ye aaNsu be-sabab jaari nahi hai

Mujhe rone ki beemaari nahi hai

Na puchho zakhm-hae-dil ka aalam

Chaman mein aisi gulkari nahi hai

Bahut dushwar samjhana hai Gham ka

Samajh lene mein dushwari nahi hai

Ghazal hi gungunaane do K mujh ko

Mizaaj -e- talkh guftaari nahi hai

Chaman me kyuN chaluN kantoN se bachkar

Yeh aayeen -e- wafaadaari nahi hai

Woh aayein Qatl ko jis roz chaheiN

YahaN kis roz taiyyari nahi hai

Aa Gayi Yaad Sham Dhalte Hi

 

غزل

آگئی یاد شام ڈھلتے ہی
بجھ گیا دل چراغ جلتے ہی

کُھل گئے شہرِ غم کے دروازے
اک ذرا سی ہوا کے چلتے ہی

کون تھا تُو کہ پھر نہ دیکھا تُجھے
مِٹ گیا خواب آنکھ ملتے ہی

خوف آتا ہے اپنے ہی گھر سے
ماہِ شب تاب کے نکلتے ہی

تُو بھی جیسے بدل سا جاتا ہے
عکسِ دیوار کے بدلتے ہی

خون سا لگ گیا ہے ہاتھوں میں
چڑھ گیا زہر گل مسلتے ہی

منیر نیازی
ماہِ منیر سے انتخاب


Aa gayii yaad shaam dhalte hi
Bujh gaya dil chiraaG jalte hi
Khul gaye shahr-e-gham ke darwaze
Ek zara si hawaa ke chalte hi
Kaun tha tu? K phir na dekha tujhe
MiT gaya khaab, aankh malte hi
Khauf aata hai apne hi ghar se
Maah-e-shab taab ke nikalte hi
Tu bhi jaise badal sa jaata hai
Aks-e-deewar ke badalte hi
Khun sa lag gaya hai hathoN mein
ChaRh gaya zehr, gul masalte hi
(Munir Niyazi)

Dayem Para Hua Tere Dar Par Nahi Hun Main

Daayem paRaa hua tere dar par nahi huN maiN

khak aisi zindagi pe K pat-thar nahi huN maiN

Kyun gardish-E-mudam se ghabra na jaye dil

Insan huN! pyala-O-saghar nahi huN maiN

Yarab zamana mujh ko miTata hai kis liye

Lauh-E-jahan pe harf-E-mukarrar nahi huN maiN

Had chahiye saza mein uqoobat k waaste

Akhir gunaahgar hun, kafir nahi huN maiN

Kis waaste azeez nahiN jaante mujhe

Lal-O-zumurrud-O-zar-O-gauhar nahi huN maiN

Rakhte ho tum qadam meri ankhoN se kyun daregh

Rutbe mein mahr-O-mah se kamtar nahi huN maiN

Karte ho mujhko man’a-E-qadambos kis liye

Kya asman k bhi barabar nahi huN maiN

‘Ghalib’ wazifakhwar ho, do shaah ko dua

Wo din gaye K kahte the naukar nahi huN maiN

Maraajeat – A Poem by Hassan Akhtar Jaleel
december 6, 2013, posted in hasan akhtar jalil, muntakhab nazms
مراجعت
———-
چلو اک بار پھر اپنی انہیں قبروں کی جانب لوٹ جائیں ھم
جہاں اس حشر بے داور سے پہلے
نیند کی صدیاں گزاری تھیں
چلو پھر اپنے کفنوں میں لپٹ جائیں
لحد کی خاک چہروں پر بکھیریں اور سو جائیں
سوا نیزے پہ سورج ھے
مگر اب تک ھماری تشنہ کامی نے
میان عرصئہ محشر،کہیں بھی چشمئہ کوثر نہیں دیکھا
کہیں میزان کی تنصیب کا منظر نہیں دیکھا
کسی ظالم کے بائیں ھاتھ اعمال کا دفتر نھیں دیکھا
سوا نیزے پہ سورج ھے
مگر وہ عدل کا دن، داد خواہی کی گھڑی اب تک نہیں آئی
چلو اک بار پھر اپنی انہیں قبروں کی جانب لوٹ جائیں ھم
کہ وہ اک کاروبار خسروی تھا اور ھم اسکو
کسی کے عہد یوم الدین کی تکمیل سمجھے تھے
وہ اک دجال کی آواز تھی جس کو
ھم اپنی سادگی صور اسرافیل سمجھے تھے
(حسن اختر جلیل)

Maraajeat

Chalo ik bar phir apni unhi qabron ki janib lot jaen hum
JahaaN es hashr e be dawar se pehle
Neend ki sadyan guzari theeN

Chalo phir apne kafnoN meiN lipaT jaaen
Lahad ki khaak chehroN par bikhereN aur so jaaen

Sawa neze pe sooraj hai

Magar ab tak humari tishna-kami ne
Miaan e arsa e mehshar, kaheeN bhi chashma-e-kousar nahee dekha
Kehen meezan ki tanseeb ka manzr nahee dekha

Kisi zalim ke baaeN hath meiN aamal ka daftar nahee dekha

Sawa neze pe sooraj hai

Magar wo adl ka din, daad-khaahi ki ghari ab tak nahi aai

Chalo ik bar phir apni unhi qabron ki janib lot jaaen hum
K wo ik karobar-e-khusrawi tha aur hum usko
Kisi ke ahd-e-yomiddin ki takmeel samjhe the

Wo ik dajjal ki awaz thee jisko
Hum apni saadgi se soor e israfeel samjhe the

(Hassan Akhtar Jaleel)

Haal Khulta Nahin Jabinon Se

حال کُھلتا نہیں جبینوں سے
رنج اُٹھائے ہیں کن قرینوں سے

رات آہستہ گام اُتری ہے
درد کے ماہتاب زینوں سے

ہم نے سوچا نہ اُس نے جانا ہے
دل بھی ہوتے ہیں آبگینوں سے

کون لے گا شرارِ جاں کا حساب
دشتِ امروز کے دفینوں سے

تو نے مژگاں اُٹھا کے دیکھا بھی
شہر خالی نہ تھا مکینوں سے

آشنا آشنا پیام آئے
اجنبی اجنبی زمینوں سے

جی کو آرام آ گیا ہے اداؔ
کبھی طوفاں، کبھی سفینوں سے

اداؔ جعفری


Haal khulta nahii jabeenoN se
Ranj uThaye haiN kin qareenoN se
Raat aahista gaam utrii hai
Dard ke maahtaab zeenoN se
Humne socha na usne jana hai
Dil bhi hote haiN aabgeenoN se
Kaun lega sharaar-e-jaN ka hisab
Dasht-e-imroz ke dafeenoN se
Tu ne miZgaaN uTha ke dekha bhi
Shahr khali na tha makeenoN se
Aashnaa aashnaa pyaam aaye
Ajnabi ajnabi zameenoN se
Dil ko aaraam aagaya hai ‘Ada’
Kabhi toofaN kabhi safeenoN se
(Ada Jaafari)

Teri Jannat Se Hijrat Kar Rahe Hain

Teri jannat se hijrat kar rahe haiN

Farishte kya baghavat kar rahe haiN

Bahut din se yeh himmat kar rahe haiN

Woh khood haare hue hain zindagi se

Jo duniya par hukumat kar rahe haiN

ZamiiN bhiigi hui hai aansuoN se

YahaN baadal ibaadat kar rahe haiN

Fezaa meiN aayateiN mehki hui haiN

KahiN bach-che tilaawat kar rahe haiN

Humaari be-basi ki intehaa hai

Kya Wasl Ki Saa’at Ko Tarasne Ke Liye Tha

Kya wasl ki saa’at ko tarasne ke liye tha

Dil, shahr-e-tamanna tere basne ke liye tha

Sehra mein bagooloN ki tarah naach raha hun

Fitrat se maiN baadal tha barasne ke liye tha

Rotee hui ek bheeR mere gird khaRi thi

Shayad yeh tamaasha mere hansne ke liye tha

Kuchh raat ka ehsaaN hai na suraj ka karam hai

Guncha to bahar-haal bikasne ke liye tha

Us raah se guzra huN jahaN saaNs na de saath

Har naqsh-e-kaf-e-paa mere dasne ke liye tha

Har qatra meri aaNkh se bahne ko to tha betaab

Har zarra mere paaoN jhulasne ke liye tha

(Muzaffar Hanfi)

 

Aaj Zara Fursat Payi Thi, Aaj Use Phir Yaad Kiya

Aaj zara fursat payi thi, aaj use phir yaad kiya

Band gali k aakhri ghar ko khol k phir aabaad kiya

Khol k khirki chand hansa, phir chand ne donon hathon se

Rang uRaye phool khilaye chiryon ko aazad kiya

BaRe baRe gham khaRe hue the rasta roke rahoN mein

Choti choti khushiyon se hi hum ne dil ko shad kiya

Baat bahut maamooli si thi, ulajh gayi takraaroN meiN

Ek zara si zid ne aakhir donoN ko barbaad kiya

DaanaoN ki baat na maani! kaam aayi nadani hi

Suna hawa ko parhaa nadi ko mausam ko ustaad kiya

Mujhe Kyun Na Aawe Saqui, Nazar Aaftaab Ulta

مجھے کیوں نہ آوے ساقی نظر آفتاب الٹا
کہ پڑا ہے آج خُم میں قدحِ شراب الٹا

عجب الٹے ملک کے ہیں اجی آپ بھی کہ تُم سے
کبھی بات کی جو سیدھی تو ملا جواب الٹا

چلے تھے حرم کو رہ میں، ہوئے اک صنم کے عاشق
نہ ہوا ثواب حاصل، یہ ملا عذاب الٹا

یہ شب – گذشتہ دیکھا کہ وہ کچھ خفا ہیں گویا
کہیں حق کرے کہ ہووے یہ ہمارا خواب الٹا

یہ عجیب ماجرا ہے کہ بروزِ عیدِ قرباں
وہی ذبح بھی کرے ہے، وہی لے ثواب الٹا

کھڑے چُپ ہو دیکھتے کیا، مرے دل اجڑ گئے کو
وہ گنہہ تو کہہ دو جس سے یہ ہوا خراب الٹا

غزل اور قافیوں میں نہ کہے سو کیونکے انشا
کہ ہوا نے خود بخود آ، ورقِ کتاب الٹا

انشا اللہ خان انشا

 

Mujhe kyuN na aawe saaqui nazar aaftaab ulTa

K paRa hai aaj khum mein Qadah e sharaab ulTa

Ajab ulTe mulk ke haiN aji aap bhi k tum se

Kabhi baat ki jo seedhi, to mila jawaab ulTa

Chale the heram ko,rah mein hue ik sanam k ashiq

Na hua sawaab haasil, yeh milaa azaab ulTa

Ye shab e guzishta dekha K wo kuch khafa hain goya

KahiN haq kare K howe, yeh hamaara khaab ulTa

Yeh ajeeb maajraa hai k baroz e Eid e qurbaaN

Wohi zabh bhi kare hai wohi le sawaab ulTa

KhaRe chup ho dekhte kya, mere dil ujaR gaye ko

woh gunah to kah do jis se yeh hua kharab ulTa

Ghazal aur qaafiyoN mein na kahe so kyun k ‘Insha’

K hawa ne khud bakhud aa, waraq e kitaab ulTa

Azaab E Wehshat E JaaN Ka Sila Na Maange Koi

So mere baad meraa khuN-bahaa na maaNge koi

Pehlu meiN intizaam hai meri nashast ka

Wus’at mili hai zabt ko mere baqadr-e-dard

Bolo koyi jawaab hai is band-o-bast ka?

‘Irfan’, teri laaj bhi Allah key supurd

Sattar hai wohi to har ik tang-dast ka

(Irfan Sattar)

Shahr E Kitaab Ujar Gaya, Harf Barahna Sar Hue

 

Shahr-e-kitaab ujaR gaya, harf barahnaa sar hue

Naghma hai surma dar -gulu, she’r watan badar hue

Mausam-e-dard ke safiir jo bhi nadeem the so the

Ab to sabhi farefta, daanaa-o-daam par hue

Jam-o-suboo ki aabroo, ahl-e-hawas ke haath hai

Jab se faqiih-o-muhtasib, shahr mein mo’tebar hue

Sarv_jawaaN ki maut par royeingi QumriyaaN bahut

YuN to ba-faiz-e-baghbaaN, Qatl kayi shajar hue

Dar khor-e-harf-e-yaar the jin ke liye hamiN ‘Faraz’

Aaj wohi sitam zareef, ghair ke naama-bar hue

Zakhm Ka Andamaal Hote Hue
september 4, 2013, posted in ilhaami aayaat, misc. ghazals
زخم کا اندِمال ہوتے ہوئے​
میں نے دیکھا کمال ہوتے ہوئے​

ہجر کی دھوپ کیوں نہیں ڈھلتی​
جشنِ شامِ وصال ہوتے ہوئے​

دے گئی مستقل خلش دل کو​
آرزو پائمال ہوتے ہوئے​

لوگ جیتے ہیں جینا چاہتے ہیں​
زندگانی وبال ہوتے ہوئے​

کس قدر اختلاف کرتا ہے​
وہ مرا ہم خیال ہوتے ہوئے​

پئے الزام آ رُکیں مجھ پر​
ساری آنکھیں سوال ہوتے ہوئے​

آج بھی لوگ عشق کرتے ہیں​
سامنے کی مثال ہوتے ہوئے​

خود سے ہنس کر نہ مل سکے احمدؔ​
خوش سخن، خوش خصال ہوتے ہوئے​

Zakhm ka andamaal hote hue
Maine dekha kamaal hote hue
Hijr ki dhoop kyuN nahi dhalti
Jashn-e-shaam-e-visaal hote hue
De gayi mustaqil khalish dil ko
Aarzoo paayemaal hote hue
Log jeete hain, jeena chahte hain
Zindagaani wabaal hote hue
Kis Qadar ikhtelaaf karta hai
Woh mera hum khayal hote hue
Pay-e ilzaam aa rukiN mujh par
Saari aankhein sawaal hote hue
Aaj bhi log ishq karte haiN
Saamnay ki misaal hote hue
Khud se haNs kar na mil sake Ahmed
Khush suKhan, khush Khisaal hote hue

Yeh Kehna To Nahi kaafi K Bus Pyaaray Lage Hum Ko

Yeh kahna to nahi kaafi K bus pyaare lage hum ko

Unhein kaise bataayein hum K woh kaise lage hum ko

MakaaN us shahr ke bhoole hue sapne lage hum ko

Hum un ko soch mein gum dekh kar wapas palaT aaye

Woh apne dhyaan mein baithe hue achchhe lage hum ko

Bahut shaffaf the jab tak K masroof-e-tamanna the

Magar is kaar-e-duniya mein baRe dhabbe lage hum ko

JahaaN tanha hue dil mein bhaNwar se paRne lagte hain

Agar_che muddatein guzreiN kinare se lage hum ko

Shahr Sunsaan Hai Kidhar Jayein

شہر سنسان ہے کدھر جائیں
خاک ہو کر کہیں بکھر جائیں

رات کتنی گزر گئی لیکن
اتنی ہمت نہیں کہ گھر جائیں

یوں ترے دھیان سے لرزتا ہوں
جیسے پتے ہوا سے ڈر جائیں

اُن اجالوں کی دھن میں‌پھرتا ہوں
چھب دکھاتے ہی جو گزر جائیں

رین اندھیری ہے اور کنارہ دور
چاند نکلے تو پار اتر جائیں​

Shahr sunsaan hai kidhar jayeiN

Khaak ho kar kahiN bikhar jaayeiN

Raat kitni guzar gayii, lekin

Itni himmat nahi K ghar jaayeiN

YuN tere dhyaan se laraztaa hun

Jaise pat_te hawa se dar jaayeiN

Un ujaaloN ki dhun mein phirta hun

Chhab dikhaate hi jo guzar jaayeiN

Rain aNdheri hai aur kinaara door

ChaNd nikle to paar utar jaayeiN

Kisi ke lams ko ab javidaaN kiya jaye

Zeyaada rakkha nahi nazar pe baar e visaal

Dyaar-e-khaab ki gum-gashtagii se achchha hai

Tang Aachuke Hain Kashmakash E Zindagi Se Hum

‫تنگ آ چکے ہيں کشمکش زندگی سے ہم‬

‫ٹھکرا نہ ديں جہاں کو کہيں بے دلی سے ہم‬

‫مايوسئ مآل محبت نہ پوچھئے‬

‫اپنوں سے پيش آئے ہيں بيگانگی سے ہم‬

‫لو آج ہم نے توڑ ديا رشتۂ اميد‬

‫لو اب کبھی گلہ نہ کريں گے کسی سے ہم‬

‫ابھريں گے ايک بار ابھی دل کے ولولے‬

‫گودب گئے ہيں بار غم زندگی سے ہم‬

‫گر زندگی ميں مل گئے پھر اتفاق سے‬

‫پوچھيں گے اپنا حال تری بے بسی سے ہم‬

‫الله رے فريب مشيت کہ آج تک‬

‫دنيا کے ظلم سہتے رہے خامشی سے ہم‬

 

Tang aachuke hain kashmakash-e-zindagi se hum

Thukra na dein jahaaN ko kahiN be-dili se hum

Mayoosii-e-ma_’aal-e-muhabbat na poochhiye

ApnoN se pesh aaye haiN, begaangi se hum

Lo, aaj hum ne toR diya rishtaa-e-umeed‬

Lo, ab kabhi gila na kareinge kisi se hum

Ubhreinge ek baar abhi dil ke walwalay

Go dab gaye hain baar-e-gham-e-zindagi se hum

Gar zindagi mein mil gaye phir ittefaq se

Poocheinge apna haal teri be-basi se hum

Allah re fareb-e-mashiyyat K aaj tak

Duniya ke zulm sahte rahe khaamushi se hum

Yeh baat hum ne kahi thi magar na maana woh

Yehi kaheiNge K bus soorat-aashnaayi thi

Jo ahd tooT gaya! yaad kya dilaana woh

Main Khiradmand Rahoon Ya Tera Vahshi Ho Jaaoon
august 21, 2013, posted in abhishek shukla, ilhaami aayaat
میں خرد مند رہوں یا تیرا وحشی ہو جاوں
جو بھی ہونا ہے مجھے عشق میں جلدی ہو جاوں

زندگی چاک کی گردش کے سوا کچھ بھی نہیں
میں اگر کوزہ گری چھوڑ دوں مٹی ہو جاوں

پھر سے لے جائے میری ذات سے تُو عشق ادھار
اور میں پھر سے تیرے حسن پہ باقی ہو جاوں

کوئی دم تُو میرے چہرے پہ خوشی بن کے ابھر
کوئی دم میں تیرے چہرے کی اداسی ہو جاوں

یا تو دریا میں بدل جاوں کہ لہریں اٹھیں
ہا بگولوں کاکہا مان لوں آندھی ہو جاوں

اس کی جانب سے کوئی ہجر مجھے آ کے لگے
اور میں معرکہ ء عشق میں زخمی ہو جاوں

جبر کی طرح کوئی جبر کروں اپنے ساتھ
کیوں نا کچھ دیر کو میں اپنے پہ حاوی ہو جاوں

ابھشیک شکلا

MaiN khiradmand rahooN ya tera vahshi ho jaaooN

Jo bhi hona hai mujhe ishq meiN jaldi ho jaaooN

Zindagi chaak ki gardish ke siva kuchh bhi nahiN

MaiN agar koozaagari chhoR dooN mitti ho jaaooN

Phir se le jaaye meri zaat se tu ishq udhaar

Aur maiN phir se tere husn pe baaqi ho jaaooN

Koi dam tu mere chehre pe khushi ban ke ubhar

Koi dam maiN tere chehre ki udaasi ho jaaooN

Ya to dariyaa meiN badal jaaooN ki lahreiN uttheiN

Ya bagooloN ka kahaa maan looN aaNdhi ho jaaooN

Uski jaanib se koi hijr mujhe aa ke lage

Aur maiN maa’rka-e-ishq meiN zakhmi ho jaaooN

Jabr ki tarah koi jabr karooN apne saath

KyoN na kuchh der ko maiN apne pe haavi ho jaaooN

So hum uski buraayi karte haiN

Pasand aata hai dil se yusuf ko
Woh jo Yusuf ke bhaaii karte haiN

Hai badan khaab-e-wasl ka dangal
Aao, zor – aazmaayi karte haiN

Us ko aur Ghair ko khabar hi nahi
Hum lagaayi – bujhaayi karte haiN

Halat-e-wasl meiN bhi hum donoN
Lamha lamha judaayi karte haiN

Aap jo mere jaaN haiN main dil hun
Mujh se kaise judaayi karte haiN

Ba-wafaa aek dusre se miyaaN
Har nafas be-wafaayi karte haiN

Jo haiN sarhad ke paar se aaye

Pal Qyaamat ke sood-khaar haiN John

Usi ki shakl liya chaahti hai khaak merii
So shahr-e-jaaN mein koi kuza-gar na rah jaaye

Guzar gayaa ho agar qaafila to dekh aao

میری بستی کسی صحرا میں بسا دی گئی کیا

جو بڑھی تھی کہ کہیں مجھ کو بہا کر لے جائے
میں یہیں ہوں تو وہی موج بہا دی گئی کیا

پاوں میں خاک کی زنجیر بھلی لگنے لگی
پھر میری قید کی معیاد بڑھا دی گئی کیا

دیر سے پہنچے ہیں ہم دور سے آئے ہوئے لوگ
شہر خاموش ہے سب خاک اڑا دی گئی کیا

Phir bichhaRne ke zamaane aaye

Khaab bhi jin ko jagaane aaye

Teri chahat ne Thaharne na diya
Raah mein kitne thikaane aaye

Tu nahi hai to hawa ka jhoNka
Ghar ki zanjeer hilaane aaye

Dil bujhaa hai na jale hain kheeme
Aap kyuN jashn manaane aaye

Badan Mein Jaise Lahu Taziyaana Ho Gaya Hai
february 7, 2013, posted in ilhaami aayaat, irfan siddiqui

Badan mein jaise lahu taaziyaanaa hogaya hai

Usay gale se lagaaye zamaanaa hogaya hai

Chamak raha hai ufaq tak ghubaar e tiira-shabi

Koi chiraaGh safar par rawaanaa hogaya hai

HumeiN to khair bikharna hi tha kabhi na kabhi

Hawaay-e-taaza ka jhoNka bahaanaa hogaya hai

Gharaz K poochhte kya ho ma’aal e sokhtagaaN

Tamaam jalna – jalaana fasaanaa hogaya hai

Fazaay e shouq mein uski bisaat hi kya thi

Parindaa apne proN ka nishaanaa hogaya hai

Kisi ne dekha hai patjhaR mein phul khilte hue

Dil apni khush nazarii mein divaanaa hogaya hai

Chaandi Jaisa Rang Hai Tera …
february 4, 2013, posted in ilhaami aayaat, qateel shifayi

Chaandii jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Aek tu hi dhanvaan hai gori, baqi sab kangaal

Har aaNgan mein saje na tere ujle roop ki dhoop
Chhail-chhabeeli raani thoRa ghuNghat aur nikaal

Bhar bhar nazreiN dekheiN tujh ko aate jaate log
Dekh tujhe badnaam na karde harni jaisi chaal

Beech mein rang-mahal hai tera khayii charoN or
Hum se milne ki ab gorii tu hi raah nikaal

Yeh duniya hai khud gharzoN ki lekin yaar ‘Qateel’
Tu ne hamaara saath diya tu jiye hazaaroN saal

Husn se dil lagaa ke hastii ki

Subh E gul ho K sham E maikhana

Baat goya yahiN kaheeN ki hai

Ashk to kuchh bhi rang la na sake
KhooN se tar aaj aasteeN ki hai

Koi Mila To Kisi Aur Ki Kami Hui Hai

Koi mila to kisi aur ki kami hui hai
So dil ne be-talabi ikhtiyaar ki hui hai

JahaaN se dil ki taraf zindagi utarti thi
Nigaah ab bhi usi baam par jami hui hai

Hai intezaar use bhi tumhaari khushbu ka
Hawaa gali mein bahut der se ruki hui hai

Tum aagaye ho to ab aayiina bhi dekhenge
Abhi abhi to nigaahoN mein raushni hui hai

Hamara ilm to marhun e lauh e dil hai miyaN
Kitaab e aql to bas taaq par dhari hui hai

Banao saaye, haraarat badan mein jazb karo
K dhoop sehn mein kab se yuNhi paRi hui hai

Nahi nahi, main bahut khush raha huN tere beghair
Yaqeen kar K yeh haalat abhi abhi hui hai

Woh guftagoo jo meri sirf apne aap se thi
Teri nigaah ko pahunchi to shairy hui hai

Safar mein hai jo azal se yeh woh balaa hi na ho

KiwaaR khol ke dekho, kahiN hawaa hi na ho

Nigaah e aayiina maloom, aks e na-maaloom

Dikhayi deta hai jo asl mein chhupaa hi na ho

ZamiN ke gird bhi paani, zamiN ki tah mein bhi

Jo shahr jam ke khaRa hai woh tairtaa hi na ho

Na jaa K is se paray, dasht-e-marg ho shaayad

PalaTna chahe wahaaN se to raastaa hi na ho

Main is khyaal se jaata nahi watan ki taraf

K mujh ko dekh ke us but ka ji buraa hi na ho

Kati hai jis ke khyaaloN mein apni umr ‘Munir’

Mazaa to jab hai K us shokh ko pataa hi na ho

Yeh Samundar Hai, Kinare Hi Kinare Jaao

Yeh samundar hai! kinaare hi kinaare jaao

Ishq har shakhs ke bas ka nahi pyaare jaao

YuN to maqtal mein tamashaayi bahut aate hain

Aaao us waqt, K jis waqt pukaare jaao

Dil ki baazi lage phir jaan ki bazi lag jaye

Ishq mein haar ke abiTho nahi, haare jaao

Kaam ban jaye agar zulf junuN ban jaaye

Is liye us ko saNvaaro K saNvare jaao

Koi rastaa koi manzil use dushwaar nahi

Jis jagah jaao muhabbat ke sahaare jaao

Hum to mitti se ugaayeNge muhabbat ke gulab

Tum agar toRne jaate ho sitaare, jaao

Doobna hoga agar doobna taqdeer mein hai

Chaahe kashti pe raho chaahe kinare jaao

Tum hi socho bhal yeh shouq koi shouq hua

Aaj ooNchayi pe baiTho kal utaare jaao

Maut se khel ke karte ho muhabbat ‘Ajiz’

Mujh ko Dar hai kahiN be-maut na maare jaao

Raag mein rang mein khushbu mein nahaayi hui raat

ORhh lii hai teri yaadoN se sajaayi hui raat

Kya koi sho’la-e-khush-rang chhupa hai mujh mein

Laut jaati hai dar-e-chashm pe aayi hui raat

Ab mere hujraa-e-wahshat mein ammaN chahti hai

Rang aur noor ke haathoN yeh sataayi hui raat

Ho gayiN phir se tahi-dast hamaari aaNkhein

Subh par hum ne lutaadi hai kamaayi hui raat

Mo’jezaa-gar thi teri sard-nigaahi sar-e-shaam

Kitne khaaboN ki mere dil se rihaayi hui raat

Hum har ek cheez ko pur noor samajh baithe hain

Jab se hai khitta-e-ehsaas pe chhayi hui raat

Abhi to aap hi haayil hai raasta shab ka
Qareeb aaye to dekheNge hausla shab ka

Chali to aayi thi kuch door saath saath mere
Phir uske baad – khuda jaane kya hua shab ka

Mere khayaal k wahshat kade mein aate hii
JunooN ki noNk se phoota hai aabla shab ka

Sahar ki pahli kiran ne use bikher diya
Mujhe sameTne aaya tha jab khuda shab ka

ZameeiN pe aake sitaaroN ne ye kaha mujhse
Tere qareeb se guzrega qaafila shab ka

Sahar ka lams meri zindagi badha deta
Magar giraaN tha bahut mujhpe kaaTna shab ka

Maanaa K beham kahaan the aise

Per yuN bhi judaa judaa nahi the

Thi jitni Bisaat! ki parastish!

Tum bhi to koi khudaa nahi the

Had hoti hai tanz ki bhi aakhir

Hum tere nahi the, jaa nahi the

Kis kis se nibaahte rafaaqat

Hum log K bewafaa nahi the

Rukhsat hua woh to maine dekha

Phool utne bhi khush-numaa nahi the

Koi hameiN dekhtaa, nahi the

Jab usko tha maan khud pe kya kya!

Tab hum bhi ‘Faraz’ kya nahi the

Buzurg E Waqt, Kisi Shai Ko La Zawaal Bhi Kar
september 20, 2012, posted in ilhaami aayaat, irfan siddiqui
بزرگِ وقت کسی شے کو لازوال بھی کر
تو کیسے شعبدہ گر ہے کوئی کمال بھی کر

درخت ہوں، تو کبھی بیٹھ میرے سائے میں
میں سبزہ ہوں تو کبھی مجھ کو پامال بھی کر

یہ تمکنت کہیں پتھر کہیں بنا نہ دے مجھ کو
تو آدمی ہے،خوشی بھی دکھا ملال بھی کر

میں چاہتا ہوں کہ اب جو بھی جی میں آئے کروں
تجھے بھی میری اجازت ہے جو خیال بھی کر

پگھلا رہی ہیں اس آشوبِ وقت میں صدیاں
وہ کہہ رہا ہے کہ تو فکرِ ماہ سال بھی کر

عرفان صدیقی

Buzurg E waqt, kisi shai ko la-zawaal bhi kar

Tu kaisa sho’badaa-gar hai, koi kamal bhi kar

Darakht hooN, to kabhi baiTh mere saaye mein

MaiN sabzaa huN, to kabhi mujhko payemaal bhi kar

Yeh tamkanat kahiN pat_thar bana na de mujhko

Tu aadmi hai, khushi bhi dikha , malaal bhi kar

MaiN chahta hooN K ab jo bhi ji mein aaye karuN

Tujhe bhi meri ijaazat hai, jo khayaal bhi kar

Pighal rahi haiN is aashob E waqt meN sadiyaaN

Wo kah raha hai k tu fikr E maah O saal bhi kar

Khabar E Tahayyur E Ishq Sun, Na JunooN Rahaa, Na Parii Rahi
september 13, 2012, posted in classic ghazals, ilhaami aayaat
خبرِ تحیرِ عشق سن، نہ جنوں رہا، نہ پری رہی
نہ تو تُو رہا، نہ تو میں رہا، جو رہی سو بے خبری رہی

شۂہ بے خودی نے عطا کیا، مجھے اب لباسِ برہنگی
نہ خرد کی بخیہ گری رہی، نہ جنوں کی پردہ دری رہی

چلی سمتِ غیب سے اک ہوا کہ چمن ظہور کا جل گیا
مگر ایک شاخِ نہالِ غم جسے دل کہیں سو ہری رہی

نظرِ تغافلِ یار کا گلہ کس زباں سے کروں بیاں
کہ شرابِ حسرت و آرزو، خمِ دل میں تھی سو بھری رہی

وہ عجب گھڑی تھی کہ جس گھڑی لیا درس نسخۂ عشق کا
کہ کتاب عقل کی طاق پر جو دھری تھی سو وہ دھری رہی

ترے جوشِ حیرتِ حسن کا اثر اس قدر ہے یہاں ہوا
کہ نہ آئینے میں جِلا رہی، نہ پری میں جلوہ گری رہی

کیا خاک آتشِ عشق نے دلِ بے نوائے سراج کو
نہ خطر رہا، نہ حذر رہا، جو رہی سو بے خطری رہی

سراج اورنگ آبادی

Khabar E tahayyur E ishq sun, na junooN rahaa, na parii rahii

Na to tuu rahaa, na to maiN rahaa, jo rahii so beKhabarii rahii

Shah E beKhudii ne ataa kiyaa mujhe ab libaas E barahnagii

Na Khirad kii bakhiyaagari rahii, na junooN kii pardadarii rahii

Chali simt E Ghaib se kya hava K chaman zahoor kaa jal gaya

Magar ek shaaKh E nihaal E Gham jise dil kaho so harii rahii

Voh ajab ghaRi thi maiN jis ghaRi liya dars nuskha E ishq ka

K kitaab aql kii taaq meN jooN dharii thii tyuuN dharii rahii

Nazr E taGhaaful E yaar kaa gila kis zubaaN se bayaaN karuN

K sharab E sad qadah E aarzu khum E dil meN thi so bhari rahii

Tere josh E hairat E husn ka asar is qadar se yahaN hua

K na aayiine meN rahii jilaa, na parii ko jalvagarii rahii

Kiyaa Khaak aatish E ishq ne dil E benavaa E Siraj ko

Na Khatar raha, na hazar raha, magar ek beKhatarii rahii

YuN hausla dil ne haaraa kab tha
Sartaan mera sitaaraa kab tha

Laazim tha guzarna zindagi se
Bin zehr piye guzaaraa kab tha

Kuchh pal use aur dekh sakte
AshkoN ko magar gawaaraa kab tha

Hum khud bhi judaayi ka sabab the
Uska hi qusoor saaraa kab tha

Ab aur ke saath hai to kya dukh
Pahle bhi koi hamaaraa kab tha

Ek naam par zakhm khil uthe the
Qaatil ki taraf ishaaraa kab tha

Aaye ho to raushni hui hai!!
Is baam par koi taaraa kab tha

Dekha hua ghar tha par kisi ne
Dulhan ki tarah saNwaaraa kab tha

Chupke chupke raat din aaNsu bahaana yaad hai
Hum ko abtak aashiqi ka wo zamaana yaad hai

Ba-hazaraaN izteraab O sad hazaaraaN ishtiyaaq
Tujh se wo pahle pehal, dil ka lagaana yaad hai

Baar baar uThna usi janib nigaah E shouq ka
Aur tera ghurphe se wo, aankheN laRaana yaad hai

Tujh se kuch milte hi wo bebaak ho jana mera
Aur tera danton men wo ungli dabaana yaad hai

KhaiNch lena wo mera parde ka kona daf’a-atan
Aur dupatte se tera wo muNh chupaana yaad hai

Jaan kar sota tujhe woh qasd E pa-bosi mera
Aur tera thukra k sar, wo muskuraana yaad hai

Tujhko jab tanha kabhi pana to az-raah-E-lehaaz
Haal E dil batooN hi batoon men jataana yaad hai

Ghair ki nazroN se bach kar, sab ki marzi k khilaaf
Wo tera chori chhupe ratoN ko aanaa yaad hai

Aa gaya gar wasl ki shab bhi kahiN zikr E firaaq
Woh tera ro ro k mujhko bhi rulaana yaad hai

Do-pahar ki dhoop meN mere bulane ke liye
Woh tera koThe pe nange paoN aana yaad hai

Aaj tak nazroN men hai wo sohbat E raz O neyaz
Apna jaana yaad hai, tera bulaana yaad hai

Mithi mithi cheR kar baateN niraali pyaar ki
Zikr dushman ka wo batoN men uRaana yaad hai

Dekhna mujhko jo barghushta to sau sau naaz se
Jab mana lena to phir, kud rooTh jaana yaad hai

Chori chori hum se tum aa kar mile the jis jagah
MuddateiN guzriN par ab tak wo thikaana yaad hai

Shauq men menhdi k wo be-dast-o-pa hona tera
Aur mera wo chheRna, wo gudgudana yaad hai

Muje lagtaa hai khud voh mehrbaaN pyasaa raha hoga

Kisi Ko De Ke Dil Koi Nawa Sanj E FughaN KyuN Ho
july 3, 2012, posted in ilhaami aayaat, mirza ghalib

Kisi ko de ke dil koi nawaa-sanj-e-fughaaN kyuN ho?? ??
Na ho jab dil hi sine mein to phir muNh main zubaan kyun ho

 

Wafaa kaisi? kahan ka ishq? jab sar phoRna Thehra
To phir ae sangdil tera hi sang-e-aastaaN kyuN ho?

Yehi hai aazmaanaa to satana kis ko kehte haiN?
Adu ke ho lye jab tum to mera imtihaaN kyuN ho?

 

Ye keh sakte ho “Hum dil main nahin hain?” par ye batlao!
K jab dil mein tum hi tum ho to aankhon se nihaaN kyuN ho?

Qafas mein mujh se roodad-e-chaman kehte na dar humdum
Giri hai jis pe kal bijli woh mera aashiyaaN kyuN ho?

 

Nikala chahta hai kaam kya taa’noN se tu Ghalib?
Tere be-mehar kehne se wo tujh par mehrbaaN kyuN ho?

PalaT kar phir yahiN aajayeNge hum

Woh dekhe to hamaiN aazaad karke

Rihaayii ki koi soorat nahii hai

Magar haaN! minnat E saiyaad kar ke

Badan mera chhuaa tha usne lekin

Har aamir tool dena chaahta hai

Muqarrar zulm ki mee’aad kar ke

Naam hi kya nishaN hi kya khaab O khyaal ho gaye
Teri misaal de ke hum teri misaal ho gaye

Saya E zaat say bhi rum, aks E sifaat se bhi rum
Dasht E ghazal main aa ke dekh hum to ghazaal ho gaye

Kitne hi nashsha-ha-E-zouq, kitne hi jazba-ha-E-shouq
Rasm E tapaak E yaar se ru ba zawaal ho gaye

Ishq hai apna paidaar, us ki wafa hai ustawaar
Hum to halaak e warzish E farz E mahaal ho gaye

Kaise zameeN parast the ahd E wafa ke paasdaar
UR kar bulandyun meiN hum, Gard E malaal ho gaye

Qurb E jamaal aur hum, Aish E wisaal aur hum ?
HaaN ye hua K sakin E shahr E jamaal ho gaye

Jadaa E shouq main paRa Qahat E ghubar E karwaN
WaaN ke shajar to sar ba sar dast E sawaal ho gaye

Kaun sa qafila hai yeh jis ke jaras ka hai yeh shor
Main to niDhal hogaya hum to niDhal hogaye

khaar ba khaar gul ba gul, fasl E bahaar aa gayi
Fasl E bahaar aa gayi , zakhum bahaal ho gaye

Shor uTha magar tujhy lazat E gosh to milii
Khoon bahaa magar teray hath to laal ho gaye

Hum nafasaan E waz’a-daar, mustam’aaan E burd baar
Hum to tumharay waastay ek wabaal ho gaye

Ab kayi hijr hogaye, ab kayi saal hogaye

Phir Usi Raah Guzar Par Shayad

Jinke Hum Muntazar Rahe Unko

Mil gaye Aur Humsafar Shayad

Jaan Pahchaan Se Bhi Kya Hoga

Phir Bhi Ae Dost, Ghaur Kar Shayad

Ajnabeeyat ki Dhund Chhat Jaye

Chamak Utthe Teri Nazar Shayad

Zindagi Bhar Lahu Rulaayegi

Yaad-e-Yaaran-e-Bekhabar Shayad

Ek din bhi agar apni tanhai se dar jata

Kash uske liye jeeta!! apne liye mar jata

Kal saamne manzil thi peechhe meri aawazieN

Chalta to bichhaR jata, rukta to safar jata

Main shehr ki rounaq mein gum ho ke bahut khush tha

Yeh sheesha-o-qadah-o-kooza-o-suboo kya hai ?

Is baat se humko Kya matlab, yeh kaise ho yeh kyuN kar ho

Ik bheek ke donoN kaasay hain, ik pyaas ke donoN pyase hain

Hum khaitee hain, tum badal ho,hum nadiya hain,tum saagar ho

Hum saNjh samay ki chhaya hain, tum chaRhti raat ke chandarmaaN

Hum aate hain, tum jate ho, phir mel ki soorat kyuN kar ho

Ab husn ka rutbaa aali hai, ab husn se sehra khali hai

Chal basti meiN banjara ban, chal nagri me saudaagar ho

Jis cheez se tujhko nisbat hai,jis cheez se tujh ko chahat hai

Wo sona hai,wo heera hai, wo maati ho ya kunkar ho

Wo raatein chand ke saath gain, wo baatein chand ke sath gain

Us sukh k sapne dekheiN kyun, jab dukh ka sooraj sar par ho

Ab ‘Insha Ji’ ko bulana kya, ab pyaar ke deep jalana kya??

Jab dhoop aur chhaaya aik se hoN, jab din or raat barabar ho!!

Tasawwurat Ka Haasil, Wohi Nishaana E Dil …
january 21, 2012, posted in ghalib ayaz, ilhaami aayaat
تصوارت کا حاصل ، وہی نشانہ دل
اسی کہ ذکر سے دلچسپ ہے فسانہ دل

مجھے یہ خوف کے تیری عدم توجہ سے
اجڑ نا جائے کہیں اب کے آشیانہ دل

چلی گئی وہ کسی جسم کی سكونت میں
ہزار ہم نے سجایا نگار خانہ دل

یہاں پہ کتنے حسین ولولے ہمکتے تھے
بھرا رہتا تھا کبھی میرا آستانہ دل

بہت عزیز ہے دست تاہی کا کرب مجھے
اسی کہ دم سے میرے پاس ہے خزانہ دل

ذرا ٹھہر کے یہی ساعتیں قیام کی ہیں
پھر اس کہ بعد بدل جائیگا زمانہ دل . . . !

Tasawwurat ka haasil, wohi nishaana e dil
Usi ke zikr se dilchasp hai fasaana e dil

Mujhe yeh khauf k teri adam tawajjohi se
UjaR na jaye kahin abke aashiyana e dil

Chali gayi woh kisi jism ki sakoonat mein
Hazaar hum ne sajaya nigaar khana e dil

Yahan pe kitne haseeN walwale humakte the
Bhara pura tha kabhi mera aastaana e dil

Suna hai dard ke lamhaat lauT aayenge
Jabhi to surkh hua jaata hai dihaana e dil

Bahut aziz hai dast e tahi ka karb mujhe
Isi ke dam se mere pas hai khazana e dil

Zara Thahar K yahi saa’ateiN qyaam ki haiN
Phir is ke baad badal jaayega zamaana e dil

Apni Tanhayi Mere Nam Pe Abaad Kare …

Apni tanhaayii mere naam pe aabaad kare

Kaun hoga jo mujhe us ki tarah yaad kare

Dil ajab shahr K jis par bhi khula dar iska

Woh musaafir ise har samt se barbaad kare

Apne qaatil ki zahanat se preshan hun main

Roz ek maut naye tarz ki eejaad kare

Itnaa hairaaN ho meri be-talabi ke aage

Wa qafas mein koi dar khud mera saiyyad kare

Salb E beenaayii ke ahkaam mile hain jo kabhi

Raushni chhune ki khashish koi shabzaad kare

Soch rakhna bhi jaraayem mein hai shamil ab to

Wohi maasoom hai har baat pe jo saad kare

Jab lahoo bol paRe uske gawaahoN ke khilaf

Qaazii-E-shahr kuchh is baab mein irshaad kare

Uski muTThi mein bahut roz raha mera wajood

Mere saahir se kaho ab mujhe aazaad kare

Aap apna Ghubaar the hum to
Yaad the, yaadgaar the hum to

Pardagi! hum se kyuN rakha parda
Tere hi pardaa-daar the hum to

Waqt ki dhoop mein tumhare liye
Shajar E saayaa daar the hum to

URte jaate hain dhool ke manind
AaNdhiyoN par sawaar the hum to

Hum ne kyuN khud pe aetebaar kiya
Sakht be-aetebaar the hum to

Sharm hai apni baar baari ki
Be sabab baar baar the hum to

KyuN hamain kar diya gaya majboor
Khud hi be-ikhtiyaar the hum to

Tum ne kaise bhulaadiya hum ko
Tum se hi musta’aar the hum to

Khush na aaya hamain jiye jaana
Lamhe lamhe pe baar the hum to

Sah bhi lete hamaare ta’anoN ko
Jan e man, jaaN nisaar the hum to

Khud ko dauraan e haal mein apne
Be tarah naa-gawaar the hum to

Tum ne hum ko bhi kar diya barbaad
Naadir E rozgaar the hum to

Hum ko yaroN ne yaad bhi na rakha

تری شوریدہ مزاجی کے سبب تیرے نہیں
اے مرے شہر ترے لوگ بھی اب تیرے نہیں

یہ جو تیرے نظر آتے ہیں یہ سب تیرے نہیں
یہ بہ ہر لحظہ نئی دھن پہ تھرکتے ہوئے لوگ
کون جانے کہ یہ کب تیرے ہیں کب تیرے نہیں
تیرا احسان کہ جانے گئے پہچانے گئے
اب کسی اور کے کیا ہوں گے یہ جب تیرے نہیں
دربدر ہو کے بھی جو تیری طرف دیکھتے تھے
وہ ترے خانماں برباد بھی اب تیرے نہیں
اب گلہ کیا کہ ہوا ہوگئے سب حلقہ بگوش
میں نہ کہتا تھا کہ یہ سہل طلب تیرے نہیں
ہو نہ ہو دل پہ کوئی بوجھ ہے بھاری ورنہ
بات کہنے کے یہ انداز یہ ڈھب تیرے نہیں

Teri shoreedaa mizaaji ke sabab tere nahi
Ae mere shahr! tere log bhi ab tere nahi

Mainne ek aur bhi mahfil men inhen dekha hai
Yeh jo tere nazar aate hain ye sab tere nahi

Yeh ba-har-lamhaa nayi dhun pe thirakte hue log
Kaun jaane K yeh kab tere hain kab tere nahi

Tera ehsaan K jaane gaye, pahchaane gaye
Ab kisi aur ke kya hoNge yeh jab tere nahi

Dar-ba-dar hoke bhi jo teri taraf dekhte the
Woh tere khaanumaaN barbaad bhi ab tere nahi

Ab gila kya K hawaa hogaye sab halqa-bagosh
MaiN na kahta tha K yeh ahl e talab tere nahi

Ho na ho dil pe koi bojh hai bhaai warnaa
Baat kahne ke yeh andaaz yeh Dhab tere nahi

Sar Mera Kaam Yeh Kar Aaya Tha …
november 2, 2011, posted in ghalib ayaz, ilhaami aayaat
Sar mera kaam yeh kar aaya tha
Kooy E qatil se guzar aaya tha

Apni hi khoj me sargardaaN hun
Main kahaaN jaake bikhar aaya tha

Kya pata uski haiN kitni shakleN
Raat to aankh mein bhar aaya tha

Dasht E ghurbat mein khyaal aata hai
Ghar bhi dauraan E safar aaya tha

Sangbarii se woh bachte bachte
Gahre paani mein utar aaya tha

Shairi aaj sar e raah mili !!!
Rang roop uska nikhar aaya tha.

Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai …
october 24, 2011, posted in ilhaami aayaat, nida fazli
Tera hijr mera naseeb hai,
Tera Gham hi meri hyaat hai
Mujhe teri doori ka Gham ho kyuN
Tu kahiN bhi ho mere saath hai

Mere vaaste tere naam par
Koi harf aaye! nahi, nahi!!
Mujhe khauf e duniya nahi magar
Mere roo-baru teri zaat hai

Tera vasl ae meri dilruba
Nahi meri Qismat to kya hua
Meri mahjabeeN yahi kam hai kya
Teri hasratoN ka to saath hai

Tera ishq mujh pe hai mehrbaaN
Mere dil ko haasil hai do jahaN
Meri jaan E jaaN isi baat par
Meri jaan jaaye to baat hai

Dil Ne Wafa Ke Naam Par Kaar E Jafa Nahi Kiya …

Dil ne wafa ke naam par kaar E jafa nahi kiya
Khud ko halaak kar diya! khud ko fida nahi kiya

Kaise kahen K tujh ko bhi ham se hai vaasta koi
Tu ne to hamase aaj tak koi gilaa nahi Kiya

Jane teri ‘nahi’ ke sath kitne hi jabr the, K the
MaiN ne tere lehaaz mein tera kaha nahi kiya

Tu bhi kisi ke baab mein ahd shikan ho Ghaliban
MaiN ne bhi ek shakhs ka qarz ada nahi kiya

Jo bhi ho tum per mo’tariz usko yahi jawaab do
Aap bahut sharif haiN aapne kya nahi kiya

Jis ko bhi shaikh O shah ne hukm E khuda diya qarar
Humne nahi kiya woh! han, bakhuda nahi kiya

Nisbat E ilm hai bahut haakim E waqt ko ‘aziiz
Usne to kaar E jehl bhi be olamaa nahi kiya

رائیگاں وصل میں بھی وقت ہوا

میرے اندر ہی تو کہیں گم ھے
کس سے پوچھوں ترا نشاں جاناں
عالم بیکراں میں رنگ ھے تو
تجھ میں ٹھہروں کہاں کہاں جاناں
روشنی بھر گئی نگاہوں میں
ہو گئے خواب بے اماں جاناں
اب بھی جھیلوں میں عکس پڑتے ہیں
اب بھی ھے نیلا آسماں جاناں

زخم آئے کہاں کہاں جاناں

Gayi RutoN Me To Shaam O Sehar Na The Aise …

 

گئی رتوں میں تو شام و سحر نہ تھے ایسے
کہ ہم اداس بہت تھے مگر نہ تھے ایسے

یہاں بھی پھول سے چہرے دکھا ئی دیتے تھے
یہ اب جو ہیں یہی دیوار و در نہ تھے ایسے

ملے تو خیر نہ ملنے پہ رنجشیں کیسی
کہ اس سے اپنے مراسم تھے پر نہ تھے ایسے

رفاقتوں سے مرا ہوں مسافتوں سے نہیں
سفروہی تھا مگر ہم سفر نہ تھے ایسے

ہمیں تھے جو ترے آنے تلک جلے ورنہ
سبھی چراغ سر رہگزر نہ تھے ایسے

دل تباہ تجھے اور کیا تسلی دیں
ترے نصیب ترے چارہ گر نہ تھے ایسے

Gayi rutoN me to shaam O sehar na the aise
K hum udaas bahut the magar na the aise

Yahaan bhi phool se chehre dikhayi dete the
Yeh ab jo hain, yahi deewaar O dar na the aise

Mile to khair, na milne pe ranjishenN kaisi
K us se apne marasim the par na the aise

RafaaqatoN se mara huN, musaafatoN se nahi
Safar wohi tha magar hum-safar na the aise

HameeN the jo tere aane talak jalay warnaa
Sabhi chiraagh sar e rahguzar na the aise

Dil e tabaah! tujhe aur kya tasalli den
Tere naseeb, tere chara-gar na the aise

Dekh lo khaab ko murjhaate hue

Apni bebaak muhabbat ki wajah
Ek mulaqaat thi, ghabraate hue

Dekhte rahte hain hum hijr naseeb
Saa’at E wasl guzar jate hue

Husn-e-afsurda ki taazim me sab
phool paaye gaye murjhate hue

Kya mere baa’d bhi koi aaya
Dar E maqtal pe ghazal gaate hue

Sar E baazaar tamaashaayi sab
Jaan se aik bashar jaate hue

Humne us k liye kuchh she’r likhe
Dil e babas pe taras khate hue

Rooh ko hogaye battiis baras
Habs E be-ja ki sazaa paate hue

Dhoop men dewaar hi kaam ayegi
Tez barish ka sahara aur hai

Haarne men ek anaa ki baat thi
Jeet jane men khasara aur hai

Sukh ke mausam ungliyoN pe gin liye

تو نے بنجر زمیں کو پھول دیے
مجھ کو اک زخم دل کشا ہی دے

بستیوں کو دیے ہیں تو نے چراغ
دشت دل کو بھی کوئی راہی دے

عمر بھر کی نوا گری کا صلہ
اے خدا کوئی ہم نوا ہی دے

زرد رو ہیں ورق خیالوں کے
اے شب ہجر کچھ سیاہی دے

Tere JabeeN ko bhi tarsaiNge aastaane jaa

Use bhi hamne gaNwaaya teri khushi ke liye
Tujhe bhi dekh liya hai, aray zamaane jaa

Bahut hai doulat E pindaar phir bhi dewaane
Jo tujhse rooTh chuka hai use manaane jaa

Suna hai usne So’ember kI rasm taza ki

Udhar se muddatoN aayaa gaya hooN

Dil E muztar se puuchh ai raunaq-e-bazm

Ajam ke shahroN meN ek shahar ka hai ye qissa
Yeh raft O bood ka ek silsilaa jo qaayam hai
BhaNvar meN jis ke har ek cheez doob jaati hai
Suna hai us meN kisi qasbe ka rayees baRa
PhaNsa kuchh aisa, koi chaal kaargar na hui
Har ek tibbee madad, har dawa, ilaaj, gharaz
Woh sab jo qabza E insaan O mumkinat meN tha
Kiya, tamam maseeha qareeb O door jo the
Talab kiye gaye, sab ko zar E kaseer diya
Magar khuda ko jo manzoor tha woh ho ke raha
Ajal ne beTe se mahboob baap chheen liya
Khabar yeh phail gayi door paas pal bhar meN
Har ek rota tha zaar O qataar sun sun kar
Pisar ke bain ka dil par asar shadeed hua
Woh seena peet ke kahta tha baar baar, ‘Pidar!
Chale ho aisi jagah chhoR kar hameN sab ko
JahaaN na dost na hamdam na koi hai munis
Andheri kothri hogi, akele rahna hai
Na khana paani jahaaN hai na roushni ka guzar
WahaaN pe jaisi bhi guzregi khud hi sahna hai
Har ek chez ko tarsoge haaye haaye wahaaN
Koi madad ko na aayega aisi duniyaa hai!!’

Ghareeb bhi koi shamil tha us janaaze meN
Aur apne noor E nazar ko bhi saath laaya tha
Suni jo aah O buka us ne kuchh nahi samjha
Palat ke baap se poochha bahut hi saadgi se
‘Hamare ghar liye jaate haiN kya unheN baba?’

Ek sitaara baiThe baiThe taabish meN khursheed hua

Aaj to jaani, rastaa takte, shaam ka chaNd padeed hua

Tu ne to inkaar kiya tha, dil kab naa-ummeed hua??

Aan ke is beemaar ko dekhe!! tujh ko bhi taufeeQ hui?

Lab pe us ke naam tha tera, jab bhi dard shadeed hua

HaaN us ne jhalak dikhlayi, ek hi pal ko dreeche meN

Jaano ek bijli lahraayi, aalam ek shaheed hua

Tu ne hum se kalaam bhi chhoRa, arz E wafaa k sunte hi

Pahle kaun Qareeb tha hum se, ab to aur ba’eed hua

Duniya ke sab karaj chhoRe, naam pe tere ‘Insha’ ne

Aur use kya thoRe Gham the? tera ishq mazeed hua

Woh aaj pahloo nasheeN hai, magar udaas hai dil

Yeh Gham ki shab bhi dhalegi, sehar bhi aayegi

Hawas hai ya K ishQ hai yeh kaun sochta rahe

Woh mera jab na hosaka to phir yahi saza rahe
Kisi ko pyar jab karun woh chhup ke dekhta rahe

Mana to us ko luN magar yeh silsila bhi kya rahe
Alag hai is ka zaaiQa K woh khiNcha khiNcha rahe

Mashaam E jaaN pe khushbuoN ki jab phuwar hi na ho
Hazaar baat baat meN woh phool TsaNktsa rahe

Shaguftan E jamaal ko hijaab E lams chaahiye
Faseel E shab ki oat meN chiraaGh yeh jala rahe

Na itni door jaaiye K log poochhne lagaiN
Kisi ko dil ki kya Khabar, ye hath to mila rahe

Jo bhi mila hai le aaye haiN daGh E dil ya daaGh E jigar

Sabza O gul kahaaN se aaye haiN

Abr kyaa cheez hai, havaaa kya hai

Hum ko un se wafa ki hai ummeed

Jo naheeN jaante wafa kya hai

HaaN bhala kar tera bhala hogaa

Aur darvaesh kee sadaa kya hai

Jaan tum par nissaar karta hooN

Haalat E Haal Ke Sabab, Haalat E Haal Hi Gayi …

Haalat E haal ke sabab, haalat E haal hi gayi

Shauq meN kuch nahiN gaya, shauq ki zindagi gayi

Ek hi haadsaa to hai aur vo yeh K aaj tak

Baat nahi kahi gayi, baat nahi suni gayi

Baad bhi tere jaan E jaaN dil meN rahaa ajab samaaN

Yaad rahii teri yahaaN, phir terii yaad bhi gayi

Uske badan ko di namud hamne suKhan meN aur phir

Uske badan ke vaaste ek qabaa bhi si gayi

Uskii ummid E naaz kaa hamse ye maan tha ke aap

Umr guzaar deejiye, umr guzaar di gayi

Uske visaal ke liye, apne kamaal ke liye

Haalat E dil, K thi Kharaab, aur Kharaab ki gayi

Teraa firaaq jaan E jaaN aish thaa kyaa mere liye

Yaanii tere firaaq meN Khuub sharaab pi gayi

Uski gali se uTh ke maiN aan paRaa thaa apne ghar

Ek gali ki baat thi, aur gali gali gayi

Sar E baam E hijr diya bujha to khabar hui
Sar E shaam koi judaa hua to khabar hui

Mera khush kharam balaa ka tez kharam tha
Meri zindagi se chala gaya to khabar hui

Mere saare harf, tamaam harf azaab the
Mere kam sukhan ne sukhan kiya to khabar hui

Koi baat ban ke bigaR gayi to pata chala
Mere bewafaa ne karam kiya to khabar hui

Mere hamsafar ke safar ki samt hi aur thi
KahiN raastaa koi gum hua to khabar hui

Mere Qissa go ne kahaN kahaN se baRhayi baat
Mujhe daastaaN ka siraa mila to khabar hui

Na woh mausam E rang rez, na dil, na maiN
Koi khaab tha K bikhar gaya to khabar hui

Woh mere saamne jab pairahan badalne laga

Bahum hue haiN to ab guftagu nahi hoti

Bayaan E haal meN tarz E sukhan badalne laga

Andhere meN bhi mujhe jagmaga gaya hai koi

Bas ik nigaah se rang E badan badalne laga

Zara si dair ko barish ruki thi shaakhoN per

Mizaaj E susan O sarv O saman badalne laga

Faraz E koh pe bijli kuch is tarah chamki

Libaas E vaadi O dasht O daman badalne laga

JahaaN tanhaaiyaaN sar phoR k so jati haiN

Un makaanoN meN ajab log raha karte the

Kar diya aaj zamaane ne unheN bhi majbur

Kabhi yeh log mere dukh ki dawa karte the

Dekh kar jo hamaiN chup chap guzar jata hai

Kabhi us shakhs ko hum pyar kiya karte the

IttefaaQaat E zamana bhi ajab haiN ‘Nasir’

Aaj woh dekh rahe haiN jo suna karte the

Lab E joo chhaaoN me darakhtoN ki

Woh mulaaqaat thi ajab koi!!

Jab tujhe pahli baar dekhaa tha

Woh bhi tha mausam E tarab koi

Kuchh khabar le K teri mahfil se

Door baitha hai jaaN ba lab koi

Na Gham E zindagi na dard E firaaq

Dil meN yuNhi si hai talab koi

Yaad aati haiN door ki baateN

Pyaar se dekhta hai jab koi

ChoT khaayi hai baarhaa lekin!

Aaj to dard hai ajab koi

Jin ko mitna tha mit chuke ‘Nasir’

Un ko ruswaa kare na ab koi

Zaaviyo!! Husn E lab O chasm nahi hai kaafi

Qaid karne ke liye duusri zanjeer dikhaao

Faaslo!! Qurb ke lamhoN me yeh doori kaisi

Yahi hoga to mujhe safha E taqdeer dikhaao

Faislo!! Baar E virasat hai mere shaanoN par

Jis ka haQdaar huN mujh ko wohi jaageer dikhaao

RaunaQo!! ‘Azm’ ki aaNkhoN me chamakne k liye

Kisi ki nabz, us ki azmat E kirdaar girti hai
Masihaa saamne hai surat E bimaar girti hai

PRosi ki siyaasat meN khasaara maiN uThata huN
Mere aaNgan me aksar ret ki divaar girti hai

Agar tum noor ke meenaar se lipte rahe to kya
K is ki roushni to jheel ke us paar girti hai

Hum apne aabloN se raaste gulnaar karte haiN
Hamaare paaoN pe Qaus E Qazah bekaar girti hai

Agar bijli ko girnaa hai gire dasht O bayaabaaN par
Mere phalte darakhtoN pe hi kyuN har baar girti hai

Wo zaalim dekh leta hai to dil par teer chalte haiN
Palak jhapkaaye to talwaar pe talwaar girti hai

‘Muzaffar’ woh mere fan ki bulandi dekhte kaise
Idhar to dekh kar naQQaad ki dastaar girti hai

Aa ke pat_thar to mere sehn meN do chaar gire

Jitne is prR ke phal the, pas E deewaar gite

Aisi dahshat thi fezaaoN meN khule paani ki

AaNkh jhapki bhi nahi haath se patwaar gire

Mujhe girna hai to main apne hi QadmoN pe giroN

Jis tarah saayaa E deewaar pe deewaar gire

Teergi chhoR gaye dil me ujaaloN k khutoot

Yeh sitaare mere ghar toot k bekaar gire

Kya hawaa haath meN talwaar liye phirti hai

KyuN mujhe dhaal banaane ko ye chhatnaar gire

Dekh kar apne dar O baam laraz jaataa huN

Mere hamsaaye me jab bhi koi deewaar gire

Waqt ki dor khudaa jaane kahaaN se TuTe!!

Kiss ghaRi sar pe yeh laTki hui talwaar gire

Humse Takra gayi khud baRh k andheroN ki chaTaan

Hum sambhal kar jo bahut chalte the laachaar gire

Kya kahuN deeda E tar yeh to mere chehraa hai

Sang kaT jaate haiN baarish ki jahaaN dhaar gire

Haat aaya nahi kuchh raat ki dal dal k siwaa

Haay kis moR pe khaaboN ke parastaar gire

Woh tajalli ki shuaayeN thiN k jalte hue teer

Aayine toot gaye, aayinaa bardaar gire

Dekhte kyuN ho ‘Shakeeb’ itni bulandi ki taraf

Na uThaayaa karo sar ko K yeh dastaar gire

Tanha kaTe kisi ka safar, tumko is se kya?

Yun laga jaise woh shab ko dair tak soya nahii

Kaun hai, aayaa hai kis des se, kis se milne

Sab ne dekha magar itna na kisi ne poochhaa

Jaane kya kahte!! agar puchhtaa ahwal koi

Lashkar E Ishq Ne Jab Se Kheeme Kiye …

Lashkar E ishq ne jab se kheeme kiye, kuchh na kuchh roz sarhad baRhaa li gayi
Aur phir ek din mere dil ki zameeN, dard ki mamlekat meN milaa li gayi

 

Raat ko ruk k sehraa jagayaa gaya, jab thakan se badan ki tanaabeN giriN
Apne haathoN k takiye banaye gaye, apni mitti ki chadar bichhaa li gayi

 

Ek chiRiyaa ki aawaaz aati rahi mere bachchoN ko mujh se chhuRaayaa gaya
Meri basti se mujh ko nikaalaa gaya, mere jangal me basti basaa li gayi

 

Dast E khaali pe kya hausla kijiye, kaise jeene ki Qeemat adaa kijiye
Abke darbaar meN nazr E sar bhej kar bach nikalne ki surat nikaa li gayi

 

Kucha E rahzanaaN se guzarte hue, kuchh lutaanaa bhi tha kuchh bachaana bhi tha
Apni sadiyoN ka sona lutaaya gaya apni khaaboN ki jannat bachaa li gayi

 

Khatm hota hai us raat ka majraa, ab ye kya poochte ho k phir kya hua
Phir chiraGhoN ki aaNkheN bujha di gayiN, phir guloN ki zabaaN kaat dali gayi

 

Saare manzar Ghubaar E pas E kaarwaaN hogaye, baam O dar sab dhuaaN hogaye
Ab munaajaat ka waqt hai ghar chalo! sair ki jaa chuki, khaak uRaa li gayi

 

 

 

Gira AaNkhoN Se Chaknaa Choor Hokar …

 

Gira aaNkhoN se chaknAa choor hokar
Teraa saayaa, mujassam noor hokar

 

Agar socho to wazni ho gayee hai
Hamari baat naa manzoor hokar

 

Kisi ka paas aa kar door honaa
kahiN andar mahakna door hokar

Kisi ke jism se bhar poor hokar

Yeh to uska hi karishma hai fusuN hai, yuuN hai
YuN to kahne ko sabhi kahte haiN yuN hai yuuN hai

Tum muhabbat meN kahaN sood O zyaaN le aaye
Ishq ka naam khirad hai na junuN hai, yuuN hai

Jaise koi ho dar E dil pe sitaadaa kab se
Aik saayaa na daruN hai na baruN hai, yuuN hai

Ab tum aaye ho meri jaan!! tamaashaa karne
Ab to darya meN talatum na sukuN hai, yuuN hai

Tu ne dekhi hi nahiN dasht E wafaa ki tasveer
Nok E har khaar pe ek qatra E khuN hai, yuuN hai

Naaseha! tujh ko khabar kya ke muhabbat kya hai
Roz aa jaata hai samjhaataa hai, yuN hai, yuuN hai

Shaairi taza zamaanoN ki hai me’maar “Faraz”
Yeh bhi ik silisila E “Kun Fa YakuN” hai, yuuN hai

Aks E khushboo huN bikharne se na roke koi

Aur bikhar jaauN to mujh ko na samete koi

KaNp uTh_ti huN maiN ye soch k tanhayi maiN

Mere chehre pe tera naam na paRh le koi

Jis tarah khaab mere ho gaye rezaa rezaa

Us tarah se na kabhi toot ke bikhre koi!!

MaiN to us din se hiraasaaN huN k jab hukm mile

Khushk phooloN ko kitaaboN maiN na rakkhe koi

Ab to is raah se wo shakhs guzarta bhi nahiN

Ab kis umeed pe darwaaze se jhaaNke koi

Koi aahat, koi aawaaz, koi chaap nahiN

Dil ki galiyaaN baRi sunsaan haiN, aaye koi

Giraftaa dil haiN bahut aaj tere deewane
Khuda kare koi tere siva na pahchaane

Miti miti si umeedaiN thake thake se khayaal
Bujhe bujhe se nigaahoN meN Gham ke afsaane

Hazaar shukr K hum ne zubaaN se kuch na kaha
Yeh aur baat K poochhaa na ahl E duniya ne

Ba-qadr-e-tashna-labi pursish-e-wafa na huee
Chhalak ke rah gaye teri nazar ke paimaane

Khayaal aa gaya maayuus rahguzaaroN ka
Palat ke aa gaye manzil se tere deewane

KahaaN hai tu K tere intezaar meN ae dost
Tamaam raat sulagte haiN dil ke veeraane

Ummeed E pursish E Gham kis se keejiye ‘Nasir’
Jo mere dil pe guzarti hai koi kya jaane

Tum aaye ho na shab-E-intezaar guzrii hai

Agar che dil pe kharaabii hazaar guzrii hai

Huii hai hazrat-E-naaseh se guftaguu jis shab
Wo shab zaruur sar-E-kuu-E-yaar guzrii hai

Woh baat saare fasaane meN jiskaa zikr na thaa
Woh baat unko bahut naa-gavaar guzrii hai

Na gul khile haiN, na un se mile, na mai pi hai
Ajeeb rang meN ab ke bahaar guzrii hai

Marne se bhi pahle mar gaye the
Jeene se kuchh aise dar gaye the

 

Raste me jahaaN talak diyay the
Saare mere hum-safar gaye the

 

AaNkheN abhi khul nahi saki thiN
Aur khaab mere bikhar gaye the

 

Jab tak na khila tha Us ka waada
Mausam mere be samar gaye the

 

Gardaab se bachne waaloN ki samt
Saahil se kayi bhaNvar gaye the

 

“Q”

 

Ab tak wohi nashsha E paziraayi
Kal khaab meN us ke ghar gaye the

 

Milta na tha waapasi ka rasta
Kya jaAniye hum kidhar gaye the

Shauq Ka Rang Bujh Gaya, Yaad Ke Zakhm Bhar Gaye …
january 19, 2010, posted in ilhaami aayaat, joan alia

Shauq ka rang bujh gaya, yaad ke zakhm bhar gaye
Kya meri fasl hochuki, kya mere din guzar gaye?

Hum bhi hijab dar hijab chhup na sake, magar rahe
Woh bhi hujoom dar hujoom rah na sake, magar gaye

Rahguzar E khyal meN dosh ba dosh the jo log
Waqt ki gard O baad meN jane kahaN bikhar gaye

Sham hai kitni be tapaak, shahr hai kitna sahmnaak
Hum nafaso kahaaN ho tum, jane ye sab kidhar gaye

Aaj ki raat hai ajeeb, koi nahi mere qareeb
Aaj sab apne ghar rahe, aaj sab apne ghar gaye

Hifz E hyaat ka khyal hum ko bahut bura laga
Pas ba hujuum E ma’rekaa, jaan k be sipar gaye

MaiN to safoN k darmiyaaN, kab se paRa hun nim-jaaN
Mere tamaam jaaN-nisaar mere liye to mar gaye

Rounaq E bazm E zindagi, turfaa haiN tere log bhi
Ek to kabhi na aaye the, aaye to rooth kar gaye

Khush nafasaan E be nava, be khabaraan E khush ada
Teerah naseeb the magar shahr meN naam kar gaye

Aap meN ‘Joan Alia’ sochiye ab dharaa hai kya
Aap bhi ab sidhaariye, aap k chaara gar gaye

Raat bhar teri raah takte rahe

Tere kooche ki raushni aur maiN

Chhup k milte haiN teri yaadoN se

Shab ki tanhaayi, chaaNdni aur maiN

Ek hi raah k musaafir haiN

BekaraaN raat, khaamushi aur maiN

Jis ki jhankaar meN dil ka aaraam tha, woh teraa naam tha
Mere hoNtoN pe raqsaaN jo ek naam tha, woh teraa naam tha

Mujh se mansoob thiN daastaanaiN kayi, Ek se ek nayee
Khubsurat magar jo ek ilzaam tha, woh teraa naam tha

Kaise karta kisi aur ki guftaguu, yaad tha sirf tu
Mujh ko mere junuN ka jo in’aam tha, woh teraa naam tha

Subh se shaam tak jo mere paas thi, woh teri aas thi
Shaam tak jo kuchh lab E baam, woh teraa naam tha

Dost jitne the naa aashnaa ban gaye, paarsaa ban gaye
Jo mere saath ruswa sar E aam tha, woh teraa naam tha

Gham ne taarikiyoN me uchhaalaa mujhe, maar daalaa mujhe
Ek nayi chaaNdni ka jo paigham tha, woh teraa naam tha

Tere hi dam se hai yeh ‘Qateel’ aaj bhi, shairy ka wali
Us ki GhazloN meN kal bhi jo ilhaam tha, woh teraa naam tha

Chaaraa – gar haar gaya ho jaise
Ab to marnaa hi dawaa ho jaise

Mujhse bichhRa tha vo pahle bhi magar
Ab ke yeh dard naya ho jaise

Mere maathe pe tere pyar kaa haath
Rooh par dast E sabaa ho jaise

YuN bahut haNs k mila tha lekin
Dil hi dil me woh khafaa ho jaise

Sar chhupaayeN to badan khulta hai
Zeest muflis ki ridaa ho jaise

Haath Khata ka thaam le, ‘afv O ataa se kaam le

Bandish O ehtesaab se, jurm O qusuur baRh gaya

Us ne nigaah pher kar raasta de diyaa mujhe

Bojh wahiN utaar kar maiN bhi huzuur baRh gaya

Haal ‘Muzaffar’ aap ka, Ghair tha yuNhi ishq meN

Jazeeraa ho ke muqaabil koi kinaaraa ho !

Qusoor ho to hamaare hisaab meN likh jaaye
MohabbatoN meN jo ehsaan ho, tumhaaraa ho

Yeh itni raat gaye kaun dastakaiN degaa
KahiN hawa ka hi uss ne na roop dhaaraa ho

Ufaq to kya hai dar-E-kehkashaaN bhi chhu aayeN
MusafiroN ko agar chaaNd ka ishaaraa ho

Pahle jab bhi dil dukhta tha
Tujh ko soch liya karta tha

Kal jis jaa baaraat ruki thi
Aaj wahaN par sannata tha

Pahla baal paka dekha jab
Us din to dil doob gaya tha

Uski hatheli par hontoN se
Maine apna naam likha tha

Mere dukh me ro paRti thi
Jaane us ka dil kaisa tha!

Mere pairoN me larzish thi
Tera kutta bhoonk raha tha

Tera khat paRhta rahtaa tha

Ab ke gaye to kuu-E-sitamgar ke ho gaye

Rote ho ek jaziira-E-jaaN ko “Faraz” tum

Aah Ko Chaahiye Ek Umr Asar Hone Tak …

 

Aah ko chaahiye ik umr asar hone tak
Kaun jitaa hai teri zulf ke sar hone tak

Daam har mauj meN hai halqaa-E-sad_kaam-E-nahang
DekheN kyaa guzre hai qatare pe guhar hone tak

Aashiqii sabr-talab aur tamannaa betaab
Dil kaa kyaa rang karuuN Khuun-E-jigar hone tak

Ham ne maanaa ke taGhaaful na karoge lekin
Khaak ho jaayeNge ham tum ko Khabar hone tak

Partav-E-Khuur se hai shabanam ko fanaa kii taaliim
MaiN bhii huuN ek inaayat kii nazar hone tak

Yak_nazar besh nahiiN fursat-E-hastii Ghaafil
Garmii-E-bazm hai ik raqs-E-sharar hone tak

Gham-E-hastii kaa ‘Asad’ kis se ho juz marg ilaaj
Shamm’aa har rang meN jaltii hai sehar hone tak

Hoti Hai Tere Nam Se Wahshat Kabhi Kabhi
Barham Hui Hai YuN Bhi Tabi’at Kabhi Kabhi

Ai Dil Kise Nasib Ye Taufiq-E-Iztirab
Milti Hai Zindagi Main Ye Rahat Kabhi Kabhi

Tere Karam Se Ai Alam-E-Husn-E-Afrin
Dil Ban Gaya Hai Dost Ki Khilwat Kabhi Kabhi

Dil Ko Kahan Nasib Ye Taufiq-E-Iztirab
Milti Hai Zindagi Main Ye Rahat Kabhi Kabhi

Josh-E-Junun MeN Dard Ki TuGhyaniyoN K Sath
AshkoN MeN Dhal Gayi Teri Surat Kabhi Kabhi

Tere Qarib Rah K Bhi Dil Mutma’in Na Tha
Guzri Hai Mujh Pe Ye Bhi Qayamat Kabhi Kabhi

Kuch Apna Hosh Tha Na Tumhara Khayal Tha
Yun Bhi Guzar Gayi Shab-E-Furqat Kabhi Kabhi

Ai Dost Ham Ne Tark-E-Muhabbat K Baawajud
Mahsoos Ki Hai Teri Zarurat Kabhi Kabhi

ZamiN par hi rafooo ka dher sara kaam baqi hai
KhalaaoN say na kahe dena K saiyaaray banaataa hooN

Mere hathoN ke chhalay phool ban jatay haiN kaghaz par
Meri aankhooN say poocho raat bhar taaray banaataa hooN

Jidhar maati uRaa dooN aftaab E taazaa paidaa ho
Abhi bachchoN main hoon saabun ke ghubbaaray banaataa hooN

Zamaanaa mujh se barham hai mera sar is liyee kham hai
K mandir ke kalas, masjid ke meenaaray banaataa hooN

Mere bachchay khaRe haiN balti le kar qataaroN meN
KuiaiN, taalaab, nahraiN aur fawwaaray banaataa hooN

Muzaffar waaqayi be dast-O-paa hooN maiN to kya Gham hai

Shaam-e-firaaq ab na puuchh aayii aur aake tal gayii
Dil thaa K phir bahal gayaa, jaaN thii K phir sambhal gaii

Bazm-E-khayaal meN tere husn kii sham’aa jal gayii
Dard kaa chaaNd bujh gayaa, hijr kii raat dhal gayii

 

Jab tujhe yaad kar liyaa, subhh mahak mahak uthii
Jab teraa Gham jagaa liyaa, raat machal machal gayii

Dil se to har mu’aamlaa karake chale the saaf ham
Kahane meN unke saamane baat badal badal gayii

 

Aakhir-E-shab ke hamasafar ‘Faiz’ na jaane kyaa hue
Rah gayii kis jagah sabaa, subha kidhar nikal gayii

Fanaa meN zindagi ka isti’aaraa doob jaaye ga

Yeh wo dul dul hai, jis ne sar ubhaaraa doob jaaye ga

Koi kahta tha do hi din hooyy thay un ki shadi ko

Kisay maloom tha Dul meN shikaaraa doob jaaye ga

Agar masoom ka hur qatra-e khooN ek samundar hai

Tau chuloo bhar lahoo meN shaher saaraa doob jaaye ga

Yeh liptay baadbaan, yeh kashtiyoN ke jhooltay langar

Sabhi aasaar kahte haiN, kinaaraa doob jaaye ga

Suna hai zor ghat jaayee ga darya ka saweray tak

Madad aanay say pahlay ghar hamaaraa doob jaaye ga

MaiN apna she’r kaise nazr kar dooN ahl E daulat ko

Ujaalay meN to yeh roushan sitaaraa doob jaaye ga

‘Muzaffar’ kyuN taRaptay ho kaha tha hum ne pahlay hi

Ke aaNsooN mat piyo, aankhooN mein paaraa doob jaaye ga

 

 

Pura Dukh Aur Aadha ChaaNd …

 

Pura dukh aur aadha chaand
Hijr ki shab aur aisa chaand

Din meN wahshat bahal gayi thi
Raat hui aur nikla chaand

Kis maqtal se guzra hoga
Itna sahmaa sahmaa chaand

 

YaadoN ki aabaad gali meN
Ghoom raha hai tanha chaand

 

Meri karwat per jaag uthey
NeeNd ka kitna kachcha chaand

 

Mere muNh ko kis hairat se
Dekh raha hai bhola chaand

 

Itnay ghanay baadal ke peechhe
Kitna tanha hoga chaand

 

AaNsu roke noor nahaaye
Dil dariya, tann sehra chaand

 

Itne roshan chehre per bhi
Suraj ka hai saya chaand

 

Jab paani meN chehra dekha
Tunay kisko socha chaand?

 

Bargad ki aik shaakh hata ker
Jaanay kisko jhaaNka chaand

 

Baadal ke resham jhoolay meN
Bhor samay tak soya chaand

 

Raat ke shaanoN per sar rakkhe
Dekh raha hai sapna chaand

 

Sookhay pattoN ke jhurmat per
Shabnam thi ya naNnha chaand

 

Haath hila ker rukhsat hoga
Uski surat hijr ka chaand

 

Sehra sehra bhatak raha hai
Apne ishq meN sacha chaand

 

Raat ke shayed aik bajey haiN
Sotaa hoga mera chaand !!

Ab ye seenaa figaar ho K na ho

Phir yahi rut ho ain mumkin hai
Par teraa intezaar ho K na ho

Shakh E zaitoon ke amiN hum haiN
Shahr meN ishtehaar ho K na ho

DaaGh E dil hum dikhaye jate haiN

She’r mere saNbhaal kar rakhna!

Muhabbat aarzo_oN ki nayi basti basaaye gee

Samajhta hai mere ash’aar par tanqeed likhnay say

Abhi ummeed baqi hai ke wo bichRa huaa saathi
Kisi bhi moR par mill kar hamaiN hairaan kar dega

Teri qurbat meN rah kar mujh ko bhi izaat mili lekin
Yahi saamaan aapas meN hamaiN anjaan kar dega

Usay nazdeek aa kar door rahna khooob aata hai
Wo zalim muskura kar bhi tera apmaan kar dega

Baher surat basher hai dost, paiGhamber nahiN koi
Wo apnay naf’a par beshak tujhay qurbaan kar dega

Ajab kamzor lamhay meN sada di hai sadaqat ne
‘Muzaffar’ aaj har qatra lahoo ka daan kar dega

Rah gaya thaa dil meN jo kuchh zauq-E-Khaari haaye haaye

Hum apnay but ko , ZuleKha leye hai Yusuf ko

Suna hai dair-O-haram maiN wo ab nahi milta
So abke us ko sar-E-dar chal ke dekhtay haiN

Us aek shaKHs ko dekho to aaNkh bharti nahi

Wo meray ghar ka karay qasd jab to saaye say
Kayee qadam dar-O-deewar chal ke dekhtay haiN

Khush numa lafz ki sawaari bas

Shahr walon ko ek madaari bas

Ishq me aur kya hua hum se

Dhang se ki hai ashk baari bas

Ek nauras kali ka gul banna

Zindagi!! teri payedaari bas

Fasl e gul kaynat ki, mujh ko

Teri chahat ki aik kyaari bas

Manzilen ghair ke liye makhsus

Apne hisse me khaabkaari bas

Ek bejaan muskurahat hai !!!!

Oonche logon ki inkesaari bas

Aur kiyaa seekhte zamaane se

Hogaye hum bhi kaar O baari bas

Ek na ek roz to rukhsat karta

Mujh se kitni bhi muhabbat karta

Sab ruteN aake chali jaati haiN

BheRiye mujh ko kahaaN pasakte

Woh agar meri hifaazat karta

Aur us se na rahi koi talab

Bas mere pyaar ki izzat karta

Mere lehje meN Ghurur aayaa tha

Usko haq tha k shikaayat karta

Vo dost ho dushman ko biii jo maat karo ho

Diivaanaa hai diivaane se kyaa baat karo ho

Ek shaakh mere husn E amal meN bhi nikaali

Sar deke bhi khush hai k sar afraaz ne tere
ThoRi si kaji teGh E ajal me bhi nikaali

Ho jayega paimaanaa mere sabr ka labrez
Turshi jo mere sabr k phal me bhi nikaali

Ab is pe shab E wasl ka ilzaam na rakhiye

Pahle to is ki justajoo hum the

Apni basti ko yaad hai ke nahiN

Uski galiyoN ki haau-hu hum the

Tishnagii de rahi thi sairaabi!!

Pyaas k din kanaar E joo hum the

Apne kuchh khaab yad aane lage

Raat maazi ke ru baroo hum the

Jaane kis baat pe vo rooth gaye

Hum nawaalaa the hum sobu hum the

FarishtoN se bhi achchha maiN bura hone se pahle tha

Vo mujh se intehaayii khush khafa hone se pahle tha

Haqiqat se khyaal achchha hai bedaari se khaab achchha

Tasavvur me vo kaisa saamnaa hone se pahle tha

Kisi bichhRe hue ka laut aanaa Ghair mumkin hai

Mujhe bhi yeh gumaaN ek tajrubaa hone se pahle tha

Agar maa’doom ko maujood kahne me ta’ammul hai

To jo kuchh bhi yahaaN hai aaj, kya hone se pahle tha

‘Sha’oor’ is se hameN kya, intehaa k baad kya hoga

Wohi hoga k jo kuchh ibtedaa hone se pahle tha

Zaalim Thaa Vo Aur Zulm Ki Aadat Bhi Bahut Thi …
november 9, 2009, posted in ilhaami aayaat, kalim ajiz
ظالم تھا وہ اور ظلم کی عادت بھی بہت تھی
مجبور تھے ہم اس شے محبت بھی بہت تھی

اس بت کے ستم سہہ کے دکھا ہی دیا ہم نے
گو اپنی طبیعت میں بغاوت بھی بہت تھی

واقف ہی نہ تھا رمز محبت سے وہ ورنہ
دل کے لئے تھوڑی سی عنایات بہت تھی

یوں ہی نہیںمشہور زمانہ میرا قاتل
اس شخص کو اس فن میں مہارت بہت تھی

کیا دوارِ غزل تھا کہ لہو دل میں بہت تھا
اور دل کو لہو کرنے کی فرصت بھی بہت تھی

ہر شام سناتے تھے حسینوں کو غزل ہم
جب مال بہت تھا تو سخاوت بھی بہت تھی

بلاوا کے ہم عاجزؔ کو پشیمان بھی بہت ہیں
کیا کیجئے کمبخت کی شہرت بھی بہت تھی
کلیم عاجز

Zaalim thaa vo aur zulm kii aadat bhii bahut thii
Majabuur the ham us se muhabbat bhii bahut thii

Us but ke sitam sah ke dikhaa hii diyaa ham ne
Go apnii tabiyat meN baGhaavat bhii bahut thii

Vaaqif hii na thaa ramz-e-muhabbat se vo varnaa
Dil ke liye thoRii sii inaayat bhii bahut thii

YuN hii nahiiN mashhuur E zamaanaa meraa qaatil
Us shaKhs ko is fan meN mahaarat bhii bahut thii

Kyaa daur-e-Ghazab thaa k lahuu dil meN bahut thaa
Aur dil ko lahuu karane kii fursat bhii bahut thii

Har shaam sunaate the hasiinoN ko Ghazal ham
Jab maal bahut thaa to saKhaavat bhii bahut thii

Bulavaa ke ham ‘Ajiz’ ko pashemaaN bhii bahut haiN
Kyaa kiijiye kam_baKht kii shohrat bhii bahut thii

Chaman meN vo husn zaar utraa to maiN ne dekhaa

Khumaar-e-mai thi vo chehraa kuchh aur lag raha tha
Dam E sahar jab Khumaar utraa to maiN ne dekhaa

Galii ke baahar tamaam manzil badal gaye the
Jo saayaa ek kuu E yaar utraa to maiN ne dekhaa

Ek aur dariyaa kaa saamnaa thaa ‘Munir’ mujh ko
MaiN ek dariyaa ke paar utraa to maiN ne dekhaa

Us ne haNs kar hameN pukaaraa kya

Hausla phir bhi hum ne haaraa kya

Meri aankheN udaas rahti haiN
Ab na aaye ga wo dobaaraa kya?

AsmaaN par nazar nahi aataa
Khogaya hai mera sitaaraa kya

Dard ki saltanat pe baithaa hai
Koi farma-N-rawaa dobaaraa kya

Chaar aansu bahake sab chup hain
RayegaaN qatl hai hamaaraa kya

Aaj tak khaak meN uRte hain sharaare jaise

 

Sakht jaaN hum sa koi tumne na dekah hoga
Humne qaatil kayi dekhe hain tumhaare jaise

 

Hausle deta hai ye abr e gureezaaN kya kya
Zindaa hoN dasht me hum iske sahaare jaise

 

Ab jo chamka tera khanjar to khyaal aata hai
Tujh ko dekha ho kahiN nahr kinaare jaise

 

Deednee hai mujhe seene se lagaanaa uska
Apne shaanoN se koi bojh utaare jaise

 

Uski aankheN hain k ek doobne waalaa insaan
Doosre doobne waale ko pukaare jaise

ChiraaGh maangte rahne ka kuch sabab bhi nahiN
Andhera kaise batayeN k ab to shab bhi nahiN

Main apne zo’m mein ek bazyaft par khush huN
Ye waqia hai ke mujh ko mila wo ab bhi nahiN

Jo mere shai’r meN mujh se zayada boltaa hai
Main os ki bazm meN ek harf zer-e-lab bhi nahiN

Aur ab to zindagi karne ke sau tareeqe haiN
Hum us ke hijr meN tanha rahe thay tab bhi nahiN

Kamal shakhs tha jis ne mujhe tabaah kiya
Khilaaf us ke ye dil ho saka hai ab bhi nahiN

Ye dastakeN ye meri zindagi ki aadhi raat
Hawaa ka shor samajh luN to kuch ajab bhi nahiN

Ye dukh nahiN K andheroN se sulh ki hum ne
Malaal ye hai ke ab subH ki talab bhi nahiN

Hisaab-e-dar-badari tujh se maang saktaa hai
Ghareeb-e-shahr magar itna be adab bhi nahiN

HameN bahut hai ye saadaat-e-ishq ki nisbat
Ke ye qabeela koii aisa kam nasab bhi nahiN

Hamaare pyar se jalne lagi hai ek duniya

Jo doobnaa hai to itne sukoon se dubo

Ho jis adaa se mere saath bewafaayi kar

Vo phool jo mere daaman se ho gaye mansoob
Khudaa kare unhe bazaar ki hawa naa lage

Tum aankh moond ke pi jao zindagi ‘Qaiser’

Koii aasan rafaaqat nahiiN lik’khi maiN ne
Qurb ko jab bhi likha juzv-e-raqaabat lik’kha

MaiN ne KHushbu ko likha dast-ras-e-gum-shudagi
Rang ko faaslaa rakhne ki riAayet lik’kha

Husn-e-goyaaii ko likhna tha, likhi sargoshi
Shor likhna tha so aazar-e-sama’At lik’kha

MaiN ne parvaaz likhi hadd-e-falak se aage
Aur be-baal-o-pari ko bhi nehayet lik’kha

MaiN ne tA’biir ko teHriir meN aane nah diya
Khaab likhte huye moHtaaj-e-bashaarat lik’kha

Mere sar par kabhi afsos ka saayaa nah rahaa
Ranj tha jis ki jagah maiN ne shikaayat lik’kha

Itne dA’voN se guzar kar yeh KHayaal aataa hai
‘AZM’ kya tum ne kabhi Harf-e-nidaamat lik’kha

 

Havaa Ke Zor Se …

Havaa ke zor se pindaar-e-baam-o-daar bhii gayaa
ChiraaGh ko jo bachaate the un kaa ghar bhii gayaa

Pukaarte rahe mahfuuz kashtiyoN vaale
MaiN dubtaa hua dariya ke paar utar bhii gayaa

Ab ehatiyaat kii deevaar kyaa uThaate ho???
Jo chor dil meN chhupa tha vo kaam kar bhii gayaa

MaiN chup rahaa k isi meN thii aafiyat jaaN kii
koyii to merii tarah thaa jo daar par bhii gayaa

Sulagte sochate viiraan mausamoN kii tarah
KaRaa thaa ahad-e-javaanii magar guzar bhii gayaa

Jise bhulaa na sakaa us ko yaad kyaa rakhtaa
Jo naam dil meN rahaa zehn se utar bhii gayaa

PhaTii-phaTii huyii aaNkhoN se yuuN na dekh mujhe
Tujhe talaash hai jis kii vo shaKhs mar bhii gayaa

Magar falak kii adaavat usii ke ghar se na thii
JahaaN ‘Faraz’ na thaa sail-e-Gham udhar bhii gayaa

 

Kab Uska Visal Chahiye Tha …

Kab uskaa visaal chaahiye thaa
Bas aik Khayaal chaahiye thaa

Kab dil ko javaab se Gharaz thii
HoNToN ko savaal chaahiye thaa

Shauq yek nafas thaa aur vafaa ko
Paas-e-mah-o-saal chaahiye thaa

Ek chehraa-e-saadaa thaa jo hamko
Be-misl-o-misaal chaahiye thaa

Ek Karb meN zaat-o-zindagii haiN
Mumkin ko mahaal chaahiye thaa

 

Apnaa Gham Leke KahiiN …

Apnaa Gham leke kahiiN aur na jaayaa jaaye
Ghar meN bikhri hui chiizoN ko sajaayaa jaaye

Jin chiraaGhoN ko havaaoN kaa koi Khauf nahiN
Un chiraaGhoN ko havaaoN se bachaayaa jaaye

Baagh meN jaane ke aadaab huaa karte haiN
Kisii titli ko na phuuloN se uDaayaa jaaye

Khudakushi karne ki himmat nahiN hotii sab meN
Aur kuchh din yuuNhi logoN ko sataayaa jaaye

Ghar se masjid hai bahut dur chalo yuN kar leN
Kisii rote hue bachche ko haNsaayaa jaaye

 

Sunte HaiN Phir Chhup Chhup Unke Ghar MeN Aate Jaate Ho …

Sunte haiN phir chhup chhup unke ghar meN aate jaate ho
Insha saahab naahaq jii ko vahshat meN uljhaate ho

 

Dil kii baat chhupaanii mushkil,lekin Khuub chhupaate ho
Ban meN daanaa, shahr ke andar diivaane kahlaate ho

 

Bekal bekal rahte ho, par mehfil ke aadaab ke saath
AaNkh churaa kar dekhte ho, phir bhole bhii ban jaate ho

 

Peet meN aise laakh jatan haiN, lekin ek din sab nakaam
Aap jahaaN meN rusvaa hoge, vaa’z hameN farmaate ho

 

Ham se naam junuuN kaa qaayam, ham se dasht kii aabaadii
ham se dard ka shikvaa karte, ham ko zakhm dikhaate ho?

 

 

Apni Marzi Se KahaaN …

Apnii marzii se kahaaN apne safar ke ham haiN

RuKh havaaoN kaa jidhar kaa hai udhar ke ham haiN

Pahle har chiiz thii apnii magar ab lagtaa hai

Apne hii ghar meN kisii duusre ghar ke ham haiN

Vaqt ke saath hai miTTii kaa safar sadiyoN se

Kisko maaluum kahaaN ke haiN kidhar ke ham haiN

Chalte rahte haiN k chalnaa hai musaafir kaa nasiib

Sochte rahte haiN kis raahguzar ke ham haiN

GintiyoN meN hii gine jaate haiN har daur meN ham

Har qalamkaar kii benaam khabar ke ham haiN

Ye mo’jezaa bhii muhabbat kabhii dikhaaye mujhe
K sang tujh pe gire aur zaKhm aaye mujhe

Vo meraa dost hai saare jahaaN ko hai maaluum
DaGhaa kare vo kisii se to sharm aaye mujhe

Vo meherbaaN hai to iqraar kyuuN nahiiN kartaa
Vo badgumaaN hai to sau baar aazmaaye mujhe

Vohii to sab se zyaada hai nukta-chiiN meraa
Jo muskuraa ke hamesha gale lagaaye mujhe

Barang-e-uud milegii use merii khushbuu
Vo jab bhii chaahe baRe shauq se jalaaye mujhe

MaiN apnii zaat meN niilaam ho rahaa huuN Qateel
Gham-e-hayaat se kah do khariid laaye mujhe

 

 

YuuN Na Mil Mujh Se …

YuuN na mil mujh se Khafaa ho jaise
Saath chal, mauj-e-sabaa ho jaise

Log yuuN dekh k haNs dete haiN
Tuu mujhe bhuul gayaa ho jaise

Ishq ko shirk kii had tak na baRhaa
YuuN na mil hamase Khudaa ho jaise

Maut bhii aayii to is naaz ke saath
Mujh pe ehasaan kiyaa ho jaise

Aise anjaan bane baiThe ho
Tum ko kuchh bhii na pataa ho jaise

HichakiyaaN raat ko aati hi rahiiN
Tuu ne phir yaad kiyaa ho jaise

Zindagi beet rahi hai “Daanish”
Ek be-jurm sazaa ho jaise

Gulon MeN Rang Bhare …

Gulon Men Rang Bhare, Baad-E-Naubahaar Chale
Chale Bhii Aao K Gulshan Kaa Kaarobaar Chale

 

Qafas Udaas Hai Yaro, Sabaa Se Kuchh To Kaho
KahiN To Bahr-E-Khudaa Aaj Zikr-E-Yaar Chale

 

Kabhii To Subh Tere Kunj-E-Lab Se Ho Aagaaz
Kabhii To Shab Sar-E-Kaakul Se Mushkabaar Chale

 

BaRaa Hai Dard Kaa Rishtaa, Ye Dil Gharib Sahi
Tumhaare Naam Pe Aayenge Gham_Gusaar Chale

 

Jo Ham Pe Guzarii So Guzarii Magar Shab-E-HijraaN
Hamaare Ashk Terii Aaqebat SaNwaar Chale

 

Huzoor-E-Yaar Huii Daftar-E-Junuun Kii Talab
Girah Men Leke Garebaan Kaa Taar Taar Chale

 

Maqaam ‘Faiz’ Koii Raah Men Jachaa Hii NahiN
Jo Kuu-E-Yaar Se Nikle To Suu-E-Daar Chale

 

Hamaare Shauq Ki Yeh …

Hamaare shauq kii yeh intehaa thii
Qadam rakKhaa k manzil raastaa thii

 

BichhaR ke Daar se ban ban phiraa voh
Haran ko apnii kastuurii sazaa thii

Kabhii jo Khaab thaa voh paa liyaa hai
Magar jo kho gayii voh chiiz kyaa thii

 

MaiN bachpan meN khilaune toRtaa thaa
Mere anjaam kii voh ibtidaa thii

 

Muhabbat mar gayii, mujhko bhii Gham hai
Mere achchhe dinoN kii aashnaa thii

Jise chhuu luuN maiN voh ho jaaye sonaa
Tujhe dekhaa to jaanaa bad-duaa thii

Mariiz-e-Khaab ko to ab shafaa hai
Magar duniyaa baRDii kaRvii davaa thii

Kya Ishq Tha Jo …

Kya ishq tha jo baa’as e ruswaayi ban gaya
Yaaro tamaam shahr tamaashaayi ban gaya

Bin mange mil gaye meri aankhoN ko rat jaggay
MaiN jab say aik chand ka shaidaayi ban gaya

Dekha jo uska dast-e-hinaaee qareeb se
Ehsas goonjti hooyi shahnaayi ban gaya

Barham huaa tha meri kisi baat par koyi
Woh haadsa hi wajh-e-shanasayi ban gaya

Karta raha jo roz mujhay us say bad gumaan
Woh shakhs bhi ab usska tamannayi ban gaya

Woh teri bhi to pahli muhabbat na thi Qateel
Phir kya hoowa agar koyi harjaayi ban gaya

 

Main Gunahgaar, Aur Anginat Paarsaa …

Main gunahgaar, aur anginat paarsaa, chaar jaanib se yalghar karte hue
Jaise shabkhuun meN baukhlaa kar utheN, log talwaar talwaar karte hue

Phir chhati his ne parche lagaaye bahut, aayine aaqebat ne dikhaaye bahut
Bhaayee ne aaj kyuuN mujh ko dekha nahi, taajposhi ka darbaar karte hue

Yeh zamaanaa laga hai k ab jism me, khaar k waaste khuun baqui nahiN
Ek woh waqt bhi tha k chalte the hum, raaste bhar ko gulnaar karte hue

Ur rahi thi wahaaN gard tashkik ki, aandhiyaaN tez thiN tanz-o-tazhik ki
Raaste meN paRaa nek – naami ka pul, khauf aayaa jise paar karte hue

Berukhi ki hawaayeN muwafiq na thiN, kaise ikhlaaq ki koNpaleN phuT_tiN
Chaar aansu zaminoN ko num kargaye, sard lafzoN ko be-kaar karte hue

Woh kharaasheN dikhate rahe haath ki, sang baari k dauraan aayiN thiN jo
Aur idhar zakhm e sar hum chhupaate rahe, khuub tazyeen e dastaar karte hue

Tarz e t’ameer k kuchh naye zaviye, asr-e-nau ko muzaffar ne bakhshe to hain
Apni hi zaat par waar karte hue, apni hasti ko mismaar karte hue

 

Raz-e-ulfat Chupa k …

Raz E ulfat chhupa ke dekh liya
Dil bahut kuchh jala ke dekh liya

Aur kya dekhne ko baaqi hai
Aap se dil lagaa ke dekh liya

Wo mere ho ke bhi mere na hue
Unko apnaa bana ke dekh liya

Aj unki nazar meN kuchh hamne
Sabki nazreN bachaa ke dekh liya

Aas us dar se TuTti hi nahiN
Ja k dekha, na ja ke dekh liya

‘Faiz’ takmil E Gham bhi ho na saki
Ishq ko aazmaa ke dekh liya

 

Yeh Kya K Sab Se BayaaN Dil Ki HaalateN Karni …

Ye kyaa k sab se bayaaN dil kii haalateN karnee
‘Faraz’ tujh ko na aayiiN muhabbateN karnee

Ye qurb kyaa hai ke tuu saamane hai aur hameN
Shumaar abhii se judaayii kii sa’ateN karnee

koyi Khudaa ho k patThar jise bhii ham chaaheN
Tamaam umr usii kii ibaadateN karnee

Sab apane apane qariine se muntazir us ke
Kisii ko shukr kisii ko shikaayateN karnee

Ham apane dil se haiN majabuur aur logoN ko
Zaraa sii baat pe barpaa qayaamateN karnee

MileN jab un se to mubham sii guftaguu karanaa
Phir apane aap se sau-sau vazaahateN karnee

Ye log kaise magar dushmanii nibhaate haiN
HamiiN ko raas na aayiiN muhabbateN karnee

Kabhii ‘Faraz’ naye mausamoN meN ro denaa
Kabhii talaash puraanii raqaabateN karnee

Dil meN ik lahr sii uThii hai abhii

Aur yeh choT bhii nayii hai abhii

Bharii duniyaa meN jii nahiiN lagtaa
Jaane kis chiiz kii kamii hai abhii

Tuu shariik-e-suKhan nahiiN hai to kyaa
Ham-suKhan terii Khaamushii hai abhii

Yaad ke be-nishaaN jaziiroN se
Terii aavaaz aa rahii hai abhii

Shahr ki be – charaaG galiyoN meN
Zindagii tujh ko DhuNDhtii hai abhii

So gaye log us havelii ke

Tum to yaaro abhii se uTh baiThe

Vaqt achchhaa bhii aayegaa ‘Nasir’
Gham na kar zindagii paDii hai abhii

Ham to jaise yahaaN ke the hii nahiiN

Ab hamaaraa makaan kis kaa hai?
Ham to apane makaaN ke the hii nahiiN

In ko aaNdhi meN hii bikharanaa thaa
Baal-o-par aashiyaaN ke the hii nahiiN

Us galii meN ye sun ke sabr kiyaa
Jaane vaale yahaaN ke the hii nahiiN

Ho terii Khaak-e-aastaaN pe salaam
Ham tere aastaaN ke the hii nahiiN

 

Ajnabi Khauf FizaaoN MeN …

Ajnabi khauf fizaaoN meN basaa ho jaise
Shahr ka shahr hi aaseb zadaa ho jaise

Raat ke pichle pahar aati hain aavazaiN si
Dur sehraa meN koi chiKh rahaa ho jaise

Dar-o-divar pe chhai hai udaasi aisii
Aaj har ghar se jaaaza sa uthaa ho jaise

Muskurata huN pa-e-Khatir-e-ahabaab, magar
Dukh to chehre ki lakiron pe sajaa ho jaise

Ab agar duub gaya bhi to marunga na ‘Kamal’
Bahte paani pe mera nam likhaa ho jaise

Apne Hamraah Jo Aate Ho Idhar Se Pahle …

Apne hamraah jo aate ho idhar se pahle
Dasht paRta hai miyaN ishq meiN ghar se pahle

Chal diye uThke su-e-shahar-e-wafa, ku-e-habib
Puchh lena tha kisi khaak basar se pahle

Ishq pahle bhi kiya hijr ka Gham bhi dekha
Itne taRrpe hain na ghabraye na tarse pahle

Ji bahalta hi nahin ab koi saa’at, koi pal
Rat Dhalti hi nahin chaar pahar se pahle

Ham kisi dar pe na thithke na kahiN dastak di
Saikaron dar the meri jaN tere dar se pahle

Chand se aankh mili, ji ka ujala jaga
Ham ko sou bar hui subh, sahar se pahle

 

Bas Tere Liye …

Bas tere liye udaas aankheN !!!!
uff! maslehat naashanaas aankheN

Be noor hui hiaN dheere dheere
Aayi nahi mujh ko raas aankheN!

Aakhir ko gaya wo – kaash rukta
Karti rahiN iltemaas aankheN!!

Khaabeedah haqiqatoN ki maari
Paamaal aur bad hawaas aankheN

Dar pesh junuN ka marhala, aur
Faqa hai badan to pyas aankheN

Baarish Huee To …

Baarish huee to phuloN ke tan chaak ho gaye
Mausam ke haath bheeg ke saffaak ho gaye

Baadal ko kya khabar hai k baarish ki chaah meN
Kitne buland-o-baala shajar khaak ho gaye

Jugnu ko din ke waqt parakhne ki zidd kareN
Bachche hamaare ‘ahd ke chaalaak ho gaye

Lehra rahi hai barf ki chaadar hata ke ghaas
Sooraj ki shah pe tinke bhi bebaak ho gaye

Sooraj-dimaag log bhi iblaagh-e-fikr mein
Zulf-e-shab-e-firaaq ke pechaak ho gaye

Jab bhi ghareeb-e-shehar se kuch guftagu huee
Lehje hawa-e-shaam ke namnaak ho gaye

Saahil pe jitne aabguzeeda thhay sab ke sab
Dariya ke rukh badalte hi tairaak ho gaye

Kuchh Bhi NahiN …

 

Kuchh bhi nahiN, koi nahiN, khaab k ekhtiyaar meN
Raat guzaar dee gayii !!! subh k intezaar meN

Baab e ataa k saamne, ahl e kamaal ka hujoom
Jin ko tha sarkashi pe naaz, woh bhi usi qataar meN

Aayega aayegaa wo din, ho k rahega har hisaab
Waqt bhi intezaar meN, khalq bhi intezaar meN

Jaise fasaad e khuun se jil e badan pe daagh e bars
Dil ki siyaahiyaaN bhi haiN, daaman e daghdaar meN

Waqt ki thokaroN me hai, uqdaa kushaiyoN ko zo’m
Kaisei ulajh rahi hai dor, naakhun e hoshiyaar meN

Jaisi lagi thi dil me aag, waisie ghazal bani nahiN
Lafz Tthahar nahiN sake, Dard ki tez dhaar meN

 

Wo SahiloN Pe Gaane Waale Kya Hue …

Wo sahiloN pe gaane waale kya hue
Wo kashtiyaN Chalane waale kya hue

wo dil meN khubne waali aankheN kya huiN
Wo hoNt muskuraane waale kya hue

Wo subh aate aate rah gayi kahaN
Jo qaafle the aane waale kya hue

MaiN jin ki raah dekhta hun rat bhar
Wo raushani dikhane waale kya hue

Ye kaun log haiN mere idhar udhar
Wo dosti nibhaane waale kya hue

ImaarateN to jal k rakh ho gayiN
ImaarateN banaane waale kya hue

Ye aap ham to bojh haiN zamin ka
ZamiN ka bojh uthaane waale kya hue

 

Dil hi to hai na Sang-o-Khisht …

Dil hi to hai na sang-o-khisht, dard se bhar na aaye kyuN
RoyeNge ham hazaar baar koi hameiN sataaye kyuN

Dair nahi, haram nahi, dar nahi, aastaN nahi
Baithe hain rahguzar pe ham, ghair hamein uthaaye kyuN

Jab wo jamal-e-dilfaroz, surat-e-mahr-e-nimaroz
Aap hi ho nazaarasoz, parde mein munh chupaaye kyuN

Dashna-e-gamza jansitaN, nawak-e-naz bepanaah
Tera hi aks-e-rukh sahi, samane tere aaye kyuN

Qaid-e-hayat-o-band-e-gham asl mein donoN ek haiN
Maut se pahle aadmi gham se najat paaye kyuN

Husn aur us pe husn-e-zan rah gayi bulahawas ki sharm
Apne pe etimaad hai ghair ko aazamaaye kyuN

WaN wo ghuroor-e-izz-o-naz, yaN ye hijab-e-pas waz’a
Raah mein ham milen kahaN, bazm mein wo bulaaye kyuN

HaaN wo nahi khudaparast, jaao wo bewafa sahi
Jisko ho din-o-dil aziz, us ki gali mein jaaye kyuN

“Ghalib”-e-khastaa k baghair kaun se kam band haiN
Roiye zar-zar kyaa, kijiye haaye-haaye kyuN

 

Khaatir se ya Lihaaz se …

Khaatir se ya lihaaz se maiN maan to gayaa
JhooTi Qasam se aap ka eemaan to gayaa

Dil leke muft kahte haiN kuch kaam ka nahiN
UlTi shikaayateiN rahiN ehsaan to gayaa

Afshaay E raaz E ishq me go zillataiN huiN
Lekin use jataa to diya, jaan to gayaa

Dekha hai butkade meN jo ae sheikh kuch na kuch
Eemaan ki to ye hai k eemaan to gayaa

Darta hooN dekh kar dil E be-aarzu ko maiN
Sunsaan ghar ye kyuN na ho mehmaan to gayaa

Go naamaabar se khush na hua par hazaar shukr
Mujhko wo mere naam se pahchaan to gayaa

Hosh O hawaas O taab O tavaaN “Daag” ja chuke
Ab hum bhi jaane waale haiN saamaan to gayaa

Huii Hai Shaam …

 

Huii hai shaam to aankhoN mein bas gayaa phir tuu
Kahaan gayaa hai mere shahr ke musaafir tuu

Bahut udaas hai ik shakhs, tere jaane se
Jo ho sake to chalaa aa usii kii khaatir tuu

Merii misaal k ik nakhl-e-khushk-e-sahraa huuN
Teraa Khayaal k shaakh-e-chaman kaa taair tuu

Main jaantaa huun ke duniyaa tujhe badal degii
Main maantaa huuN ke aisaa nahiin bazaahir tuu

Hansii Khushii se bichhaR jaa agar bichaRnaa hai
Ye har maqaam pe kyaa sochataa hai aakhir tuu

‘Faraz’ tune use mushkiloN mein daal diyaa
Zamaanaa saahib-e-zar aur sirf shaayir tuu

 

Na GaNvaao Naavak …

 

Na gaNvaao naavak-e-niim-kash, dil-e-reza reza gaNvaa diyaa
Jo bache haiN sang samet lo, tan-e-daagh daagh lutaa diyaa

Mere chaaraagar ko naved ho, saf-e-dushmanaaN ko Khabar karo
Wo jo qarz rakhate the jaan par, wo hisaab aaj chukaa diyaa

Karo kaj jabiiN pe sar-e-kafan, mere qaatiloN ko gumaaN na ho
K ghuruur-e-ishq kaa baaNkapan, pas-e-marg hamne bhulaa diyaa

Udhar ek harf k kushtanii, yahaaN laakh uzr thaa guftanii
Jo kahaa to sun ke uDaa diyaa, jo likhaa to padh ke mitaa diyaa

Jo ruke to koh-e-garaaN the ham, jo chale to jaaN se guzar gaye
Rah-e-yaar hamane qadam qadam, tujhe yaadagaar banaa diyaa

 

Dariya Ke Paas Aur …

Dariya k paas aur bahaanaa to hai nahi
kahta hai chal k tera thikaana to hai nahi

Thori si raoushni hai, use jo bhi loot le
Jugnu miyaN k paas khazaana to hai nahi

Hum Jaye-Haadsaa se bahut door aagaye
Zakhmi ki cheekh koi taraanaa to hai nahi

Jab kah diya to baat nibhadenge umr bhar
HalaNki dosti ka zamaanaa to hai nahi

Laavaa sa khaulta hai sadaa andrun-e-zaat
Aatish fashan-e-gham ka dehaana to hai nahi

Deewaana hai jo us se tawaqqo’ rakhe koi
Aakhir wo rahnuma hai diwanaa to hai nahi

Chubh jayeN jane kis ko ‘Muzaffar’ hamare she’r
Har chand koi khaas nishaana to hai nahi

 

Tera Ghar aur Mera …

Tera ghar aur mera jungal bheegta hai saath saath
Aisi barsaateN ke badal bheegta hai saath saath

Bachpane ka saath hai phir aik se dono ke dukh
Raat ka aur mera aanchal bheegta hai saath saath

Woh ajab duniya, k sab khanjar bakaf phirte hain, aur
Kaanch ke peyaloN maiN sandal bheegta hai saath saath

Baarish-e-sang-e-malamat maiN bhi woh hamraah hai
MaiN bhii bheeguN khud bhi pagal bheegta hai saath saath

LaRkiyoN ke dukh ajab hote haiN sukh us se ajeeb
Hans rahi haiN aur kaajal bheegta hai saath saath

 

Ye Dil, Ye Paagal Dil Mera …

Ye dil, ye paagal dil mera kyuN bujh gayaa? aavaargii
Is dasht meN ik shahar thaa wo kyaa huaa? aavaargii

Kal shab mujhe be-shakl sii aavaaz ne chauNkaa diyaa
MaiN ne kahaa tuu kaun hai? us ne kahaa aavaargii

Ik tuu k sadiyoN se mere ham_raah bhiii ham_raaz bhii
Ik maiN k tere naam se naa_aashnaa aavaargii

Ye dard kii tanhaa_iyaaN, ye dasht kaa viiraaN safar
Ham log to uktaa gaye apanii sunaa aavaargii

Ik ajnabii jhoNke ne jab, puchhaa mere gham ka sabab
Sahraa kii bhiiigii ret par maiN ne likhaa aavaargii

Le ab to dasht-e-shab kii saariii vus’ateN sone lagiiN
Ab jaaganaa hogaa hameN kab tak? bataa aavaargii

Kal raat tanhaa chaaNd ko dekha tha maiN ne Khaab meN
‘Mohsin’ mujhe raas aayegii, shaayad sadaa aavaargii

 

Ishq Mujhko Nahin …

Ishq mujhko nahin wahshat hi sahi
Meri wahshat teri shohrat hi sahi

Qat’aa kieje na taa’alluq hum se
Kuchh nahin hai to adaawat hi sahi

Mere hone main hai kya ruswaai
Ye woh majlis nahin khalwat hi sahi

Hum bhi dushman to nahin hain apne
Ghair ko tujh se mohabbat hi sahi

Apni hasti hi se ho jo kuchh ho
Aagahi gar nahin ghaflat hi sahi

Umr harchand k hai barq-E-kharaam
Dil ko khuN karne ki fursat hi sahi

Hum koi tark-e-wafaa karte hain
Naa sahi ishq, museebat hi sahi

Kuchh to de Ae falak-e-na-insaaf
Aah-o-fariyaad ki rukhsat hi sahi

Hum bhi tasleem ki khuu dalenge
Be – neyaazi teri aadat hi sahi!!!

Yaar se chheR chali jaaye “Asad”
Gar nahin wasl to hasrat hi sahi

 

Hawaa Ke Hont KhuleN …

Hawa ke hont khuleN, saa’at e kalaam to aaye
Ye ret jaisa badan, aandhiyoN ke kaam to aaye

Hamara sar na uthaaye wo apne sar se buland
Rayees shahr ko aadaab e qatl-e-aam to aaye
~
Use udaas na kar de ye meri tez ravee !!
MaiN abke sust chaluN wo subuk kheraam to aaye
~
Munafeqat ki sabhi tohmaten mujhe dede
Mere tufail rafeeqoN me tera naam to aaye

Gham-e-hayat, gham-e-rozgaar, be watani
Sakun se jo dhale kaash aisi shaam to aaye.

Maskan-E-Maah-O-Saal …

Maskan-e-maah o saal chhoR gaya
Dil ko uss ka khayaal chhoR gaya

Taaza dam jism o jaaN thay furqat meiN
Wasl , uss ka nidhaal chhoR gaya

Ahd-e-maazi jo tha ajab pur haal
Aik weeraan haal chhoR gaya

Zaala baari k marhaloN ka safar
Qaaflay, paayemaal chhoR gaya

Dil ko ab yeh bhi yaad ho k na ho
Kaun tha , kia malaal chhoR gaya

MaiN bhi ab khud se huN jawaab talab
Wo mujhey , bay sawaal chhoR gaya

 

Shaayad Us Ne Mujhko …

Shaayed uss ne mujhko tanha dekh liya hai
Dukh ne mere ghar ka rasta dekh liya hai

Apne aap se aankh churaaye phirti hoon main
Aayine mein kiska chehra dekh liya hai

Ab bhi sapne boye to eimaan hai uska
Usne in aankhon mein sehra dekh liya hai

Uss ne mujhe dar-asal kabhi chaha hi nahi tha
Khud ko de ker yeh bhi dhoka dekh liya hai

Uss se milte waqt ka rona kuch fitri tha
Uss se bichar jaane ka nateeja dekh liya hai

Rukhsat karne ke aadaab nibhaane hi they
Band aankhon se usko jata dekh liya hai !!

Is qadar yaad hai apne the sabhi
Kisne kya chaal chali, yaad naheeN

Hum zamane mein kuch aise bhatkay
Ab to unki bhi gali yaad naheen

Abr tha, jaam tha, per aap na thay
Woh ghaRi kaise tali yaad naheeN

Kat gayi umr kisi tarh’ “Qateel”
Woh buri thee k bhali yaad naheeN

(Qateel Shifayi)

 

Bahte Daryaa MeN …

Bahte daryaa men utar jana tha
Khaak the aur bikhar jana tha
*
Us se bichhRe to zamaanaa beeta
Ab talak zakhm ko bhar jana tha
*
Maan letaa hun tujhe hi manzil!!
Ab kahaaN yaad kidhar jana tha
*
Hausle ham ne bachakar rakkhe
Jab hameN had se guzar jana tha
*
Jaan !!! is hijr pe ronaa kaisa!!!
Ek din yuN bhi to mar jana tha


 

Qaryaa-e-jaaN mein …

Qaryaa-e-jaaN mein koi phool khilaane aaye
Woh mere dil pe nayaa zakhm lagaane aaye

Mere veeraan darichoN mein bhi khushbu jaage
Woh mere ghar ke dar-o-baam sajaane aaye

Uss se ek baar to roothuN main usee ki maanind
Aur meri tarh’ se wo mujhko manaane aaye

Isee kuche mein kayi us ke shanaasa bhi to hain
Woh kisi aur se milne ke bahaane aaye

Ab na puchhungi main khoye hue khaboN ka pata
Woh agar aaye to kuch bhi na bataane aaye

Zabt ki shehar-panaahoN ki mere maalik khair
Gham ka sailaab agar mujhko bahaane aaye.

Garaj Baras Pyasi ….

Garaj baras pyaasi dharthi ko phir paani de maula
ChidiyoN ko daane, bacchoN ko guR-dhaani de maula

Do aur do ka joR hamesha chaar kahan hota hai
Soch samajh waaloN ko thoRi naadaani de maula

Phir roshan kar zahr ka pyaala, chamka nayee salibeN
JhootoN ki duniya meiN sach ko taabaani de maula

Phir moorat se bahar aakar chaaroN or bhikar ja
Phir mandir ko ek meera deewaani de maula

Tere hote koi kisi ki jaan ka dushman kyoN ho
Jeene waaloN ko marne ki aasaani de maula

 

Uga Sabza Dar O Deewar …

Uga Sabza Dar-o-Deewar Per Aahista Aahista
Hua Khaali Sadaon Se Nagar Aahista Aahista

Ghira Baadal khamoshi Se Khizaan Aasaar Baghon Per
Hile Thhandi Hawaon Se Shajar Aahista Aahista

Bahut He Sust Tha Manzar Lahoo K Rang Laane Ka
Nishaan Aakhir Hua Ye Surkh Tar Aahista Aahista

Chamak Zar Ki Usse Aakhir Makaan-e-Khaak Tak Laayi
Banaya Naag Ne Jismon Mein Ghar Aahista Aahista

Mere Bahar Faseelen Thein Ghubaar-e-Khaak-o-Baaraan Ki
Mili Mujh Ko Tere Gham Ki Khabar Aahista Aahista

Munir Is Mulk Per Aaseb Ka Saaya Hay Ya Kya Hay
K Harkat Tez Tar Hay Aur Safar Aahista Aahista

 

Gham Hai Yaa …

Gham hai ya izteraar sa kuch hai
Yaa mujhe intezaar sa kuchh hai

Be sabab aur kaun bhatke ga??
Dil hai, aur be qaraar sa kuch hai

Jab bhi chaahuN udaas hojauN!
Khud pe ab ikhteyaar sa kuch hai

Zindagi itni badnumaa to nahi!!
Aayeene pe ghubaar sa kuch hai

Ab gumaN ho raha hai manzil ka
Saamne reg zaar sa kuch hai

Hauslon ko abhi pata na chale
Raste me hisaar sa kuch hai !

Mere andar ki rut khezaN jaisii
Wo sarapa bahaar sa kuchh hai

 

Bechain Bahut Phirna …

Bechain Bahut Phirna, Ghabraye Hue Rehna
Ek Aag Si Jazbon Ki, Dehkaye Hue Rehna

Chhalkaye Hue Chalna Khushboo Lab-e-la’aleen Ki
Ek Baagh Sa Saath Apne Mehkaye Hue Rehna

Uss Husn Ka Shewa Hay Jab Ishq Nazar Aaye
Parde Mein Chale Jaana Sharmaye Hue Rehna

Ek Shaam Si Kar Rakhna Kaajal K Karishme Se
Ek Chaand Sa Aankhon Mein Chamkaye Hue Rehna

Aadat hi Bana Lee Hay Tum Ne Tou Munir Apni
Jis Shehar Mein Bhi Rehna Uktaye Hue Rehna

Juz Tere Koi Bhi …

Juz teray koi bhi din raat na janay meray
Tu kahaN hai magr Ae dost puranay meray

Tu bhi khushboo hai magr mera tujusus bekar
Burg-e-awara ki maninth dikhAnay meray

ShamA ki lau thi k wo tu tha magr hijr ki raat
Dair tak rotA raha koi sarhanay meray

Khalq ki beKhabaree hai k meree ruswayee
Log mujh ko hi sunatay hain fasanay meray

Lut k bhi khush huN k ashkoN se bhara hai daaman
Dekh gharat gar e dil yeh bhi khazane meray

Aaj ik aur baraS beet gaya us kay beghair
Jis k hotay hue hotay thay zamanay meray

Kaash tu bhi meri aawaaz kahiN sunta ho
Phir pukara hai tujhe dil ki saada ne meray

Kaash tu bhi kabhi aajaye masihayee ko
Log aate hain bahut dil ko dukhane meray

Kaash auroN ki tarah main bhi kabhi keH sakta
Baat sun lee hai meri, aaj khuda ne meray

Tu hai kis haal mein aih zood-faramosh mere
Mujh ko to chheen liya ahd-e wafa ne meray

Chara-gar yuN to bahut haiN magr ae jaan-e-faraz
Juz teray aur koi zakhum na janay meray

 

Khuda Ka Shukr …

خدا کا شکر مجھے بیش از گمان ملا
تمہارے ریشمی آنچل کا سائبان ملا

نہ جانے مجھ میں سمائی تھیں ہجرتیں کتنی
ترے وجود سے مجھ کو مرا مکان ملا

خدا نے ہم پہ حدیں کتنی باندھ رکھی ہیں
حصار جسم سے نکلے تو آسمان ملا

ہم اسکے جبر کا قصّہ سناتے کس کس کو
یہاں تو جو بھی ملا اس کا ہم زبان ملا

حکایتیں تھیں مری راویوں کے نرغے میں
پھر اس کے باد جہاں مجھ سے بعد گمان ملا

سنا ہے شہر کی بنیاد اس نے ڈالی تھی
جو شخص کل مری بستی میں بے امان ملا

Khuda ka shukr mujhe besh-az-gumaan mila
Tumhare reshmi aanchal ka saayabaan mila.

Na jaane mujh meN samaayi thiN hijrateN kitni
Tere wajood se mujh ko meraa makaan mila.

Khuda ne humpe hadeN kitni baNdh rakhkhi haiN
Hisaar e jism se nikle to aasmaan mila !!

Hum uske jabr ka qissaa sunaate kis kis ko
YahaaN to jo bhi milaa, uska hamzaban mila.

HikayateN thiN meri raaviyoN ke narghe meN
Phir uske baad jahaaN mujh se bad gumaan mila

Suna hai shahr ki buniyaad usne daali thi
Jo shakhs kal meri basti me be amaan mila.

Ye shayeri mujhe maqdur bhar mili hi nahin
Magar abhi bhi koi le to mujh se taan mila.

 

Zikr-e shab-e firaaq …

Zikr-e shab-e firaaq se wehshat usay bhi thee,
Meri tarah kisi se muhabbat usay bhi thee.

Mujh ko bhi shoq tha naye chehron ki deed ka,
Rasta badal k chalne ki aadal usay bhi thee.

Us raat dair tak wo raha mahav-e guftagoo,
Masroof main bhi kam tha faraagat usay bhi thee.

Mujh se bichhar k shahar main ghul mil gaya wo shakhs,
Haalaanke shahar bhar se adaawat usay bhi thee.

Wo mujh se barh k zabt ka aadi tha jee gaya,
Warna her aik saans qayamat usay bhi thee.

Sunta tha wo bhi sab se puraani kahaaniyaan’
Shayad rifaaqaton ki zaroorat usay bhi thee.

Tanha husa safar main to mujh pe khula ye bhaid,
Saaye se pyar, dhoop se nafrat usay bhi thee.

Mohsin’ main us se keh na saka yun bhi haal-e dil,
Dar-pesh aik taaza museebat usay bhi thee..

 

Khulegi Uss Nazar Pe …

 

Khulegi uss nazar pe chashm-e-tar aahista-aahista

Kiya jaata hai paani mein safar aahista-aahista

Koi zanjeer phir waapas waheeN par le ke aati hai

Kathin ho raah to chhut’ta hai ghar aahista-aahista

Badal dena hai rasta ya kaheeN par baith jaana hai

K thakta jaa raha hai humsafar aahista-aahista

Khalish ke saath iss dil se na meri jaan nikal jaaye

Khinche teer-e-shanaasaai magar aahista-aahista

Hawa se sarkashi mein phool ka apna zayaaN dekha

So jhukta jaa raha hai ab ye sar aahista-aahista

Meri shola mijaazi ko wo jangal kaise raas aaye

Hawa bhi saans letii ho jidhar aahista-aahista.

 

Kucha E DilbaraaN ke …

KUCHA E DILBARAAN KE THE HI NAHIN
AHL US IMTEHAAN KE THE HI NAHIN
ANDHIYON KE AMAL DAKHAL ME RAHE
HUM KISI AASHIYAN KE THE HI NAHIN.
SAH GAYE RIZQ KE LIYE WO LAFZ !!
JO HAMARI ZABAN KE THE HI NAHIN.
CHARA GAR SE WO ZAKHM KIYA BHARTE
JO ADOO KI SENAAN KE THE HI NAHIN
JIS KA ANJAAM KHUSH NATEEJAA HO
HUM TO US DASTAAN KE THE HI NAHIN.
IS TARAH HUM NE CHHOR DEE DUNIYA
JAISE PAHLE YAHAAN KE THE HI NAHIN.

Daikh hamaray mathay pe yeh dasht-e-talab ki dhool miyaan

Ahl-e-wafa se baat na karna ho ga tera usool miyaan
Hum kioun phairain in galyoon k phairoN ka ma’mool miyaan

Yunhi to nahi dasht main pohnchay,yunhi to nahi jog liya
Basti basti kantay daikhay jangal jangal phool miyaan

Yeh to kaho kabhi ishq kia ha?jag main hoye ho ruswa bhi
Is k siwa hum kuch na puuchain baqi baat fazool miyaan

Nasb karain mehraab-e-tamanna,deeda-o-dil ko farsh karain
Suntay hain wo kooe-wafa main aaj karain gay nazool miyaan

Sun to liya kisi naar ki khatir kata koh, nikali nehr
Ik zara say Qissay ko ab daitay ho kioun tool miyaan

Khailnay day inhain ishq ki baazi,khailain gay to seekhain gay
Qais ki ya Farhad ki khatir kholain kiya iskool miyaan?

Ab to hamain manzoor hai yeh bhi,shehr se niklain,ruswa hoN
Tujh ko daikha, baatain kar leen,mehnat hoi wasool miyaan

Insha jee kiya uzr hai tm ko, naqd-e-dil-o-jaan nazr karo
Roop nagar kay nakay per yeh lagta hai mehsool miyaan!!

 

Raat ek mehfil meiN …

Raat ek mehfil meiN guft_guu namu par thii
Har zubaan thii saakit, har nigaah pat_thar thii

Ek savaal kii lou se hoNT jhulse jaate the
Ek javaab kii ThanDak aah ke baraabar thii

Ek be-yaqeeN lehja khouf se larazta tha
Ik Chhupi huii hairat, hairatoN se baahar thii

Voh sukhan zubaN par tha jis ko dil meiN rehna tha
Voh shikan jabeeN par thii jo adaaye bistar thii

MaiN bahut hirasaaN tha zakhm ke na bharne se
Ek shab kii mohlat thii aur jang sar par thii

Shaakh-e-dil kii haryaali khaab ka bayaaN Thehri
MaiN ne jis ko nam rak_Kha voh zameeN hii banjar thii

Mujh meiN ek darya hai jo bipharta rehta hai
Pehle ek Sehra tha jis pe chup kii chaadar thii

MaiN ne us ko har lamha jism se pukaraa tha
Ab Khula keh voh khaahish ruuh ke baraabar thii

Ishq kii karaamat hai varnaa umr ke haathoN
Khaal-o-khad kii veeraani husn ka muqaddar thii

Kya huye voh lab jin se phool hii baraste the
Kya huii voh shaadabi jo hameiN muyassar thii

AZM be-sabab dekhha tum ne khaab-e-sairaabi
Dasht ke tasalsul meiN tashnagi hii behtar thii

Kitne mousam sargardaaN the …

Kitne mousam sargardaan the mujh se hath milane main
Main ne shaayed dair lagadi khood sey baahar aane main

Ek nighah ka san’nata hai ek aawaaz ka banjar pan
Main kitna tanha baitha hun qurbat ke veerane main

Bistar se karwat ka rishta toot gaya ek yaad ke saath
Khaab sarhane se uth baitha takiye ko sarkaney main

Aaj uss phul ki khushbu mujh main paiham shor machati hai
Jis ne be had ujlat barti khilne aur murjhaane main

Baat banaane wali ratein rang nikharne wale din
Kin rastoN par chhoR aaya main umr ka sath nibhane main

Aik malal ki gard samete main ne khood ko paar kia
Kaise kaise wasl guzare hijr ka zakhm chhupane main

Jitne dukh the jitni umeedein, sab se brabar kam liya
Main ne apne aayinda ki ek tasweer banaane main

Aik wazahat ke lamhe main mujh par ye ahwaal khula
Kitni mushkil paish aati hai apna haal bataane main

Pahlay dil ko aas dilaa kar beparwaaa ho jata tha
Ab to Azm bikhar jata hun main khud ko bahlane main

 

Ranjish Hi Sahi …

Ranjish hi sahi, dil hi dukhaanay k liye aa
Aa phir se mujhay chhoR k jaanay k liye aa

Pahlay se maraasim na sahi phir bhi kabhi to
Rasm-o-rah-e-dunya ko nibhaanay k liye aa

Kis kis ko bataayaiNge judaayi ka sabab ham
Tu mujh se Khafa hai to zamaanay k liye aa

Kuchh to meray pindaar-e-mohabbat ka bharam rakh
Tu bhi to kabhi mujh ko manaanay k liye aa

Ek umr se huN lazzat-e-giryaa se bhi mahrum
Ai raahat-e-jaaN mujh ko rulaanay k liye aa

Ab tak dil-e-Khush fahm ko haiN tujh se umeedaiN
Yeh aaKhri sham’eiN bhi bujhaanay ki liye aa

Maanaa k muhabbat ka chhupaanaa hai muhabbat
Chupke se kisi roz jataane ke liye aa

Jaise tujhe aate hain na aane ke bahane
Waise hi kisi roz na jaane ke liye aa

Roaney waaloN se kaho un ka bhi roana ro laiN
Jin ko majboori-e-haalaat ne roaney na diya

Wo bhi raha baygaana, ham ne bhi na pehchaana
HaaN ai dil-e-deewaana, apna ho to aisa ho

Ham ne yahi maaNga tha, us ne yahi baKhshaa hai

Is daur meN kya kya hai, ruswaayi bhi lazzat bhi
KaaNTa ho to aisa ho, chubhta ho to aisa ho

Dohay …

Main roya pardes mein, bheegaa maaN kaa pyaar
Dukh ne dukh se baat ki, bin chit_thhi bin taar!!!!

Chhotaa kar ke dekhiye jeevan kaa vistaar
AankhoN bhar aakaash hai, baahoN bhar sansaar

Leke tan ke naap ko, ghoomay basti gaanv
Har chaadar ke gher se, baahar nikalay paanv

Sab ki poojaa ek si, alag alag hai reet
Masjid jaaye maulavi, koyal gaaye geet

Puja ghar mein murti Meera k sang Shyam
Jiski jitni chaakari, utne uske daam

Nadiyaa seenchay khet ko, tota kutray aam
Sooraj Thekedaar saa, sab ko baantay kaam

Saaton din bhagwaan ke, kyaa mangal kyaa peer
Jis din soye der tak, bhookhaa rahay faqeer

Achhi sangat baithkar, sangi badalay roop
Jaisay milkar aam se meethii ho gayi dhoop

Sapnaa jharnaa neend kaa, jaagii aankhen pyaas
Paanaa, khonaa, khojanaa saanson kaa itihaas

Chaahay Geetaa baanchiye, yaa padhiye Quraan
Mera tera pyaar hi har pustak kaa gyaan

Raste ko bhi dosh de, aankheN bhi kar laal
Chappal me jo keel hai, pahle use nikaal

Seedha sada dakiya, jadu kare mahaan
Ek hi thaile me rakhe, aansu aur muskan

Bachchah bola dekh k masjid aalishaan
Allah tere ek ko itna baRa makaan???

 

Niyyat-E-Shauq Bhar Na Jaaye KahiN …

Niyyat-e-shauq bhar na jaaye kahiN
Tu bhi dil se utar na jaaye kahiN

Aaj dekha hai tujh ko der k baad
Aaj ka din guzar na jaaye kahiN

Na milaa kar udaas logon se
Husn tera bikhar na jaaye kahiN

Aarzoo hai k tuu yahaan aaye
Aur phir umar bhar na jaaye kahiN

Jee jalaata huN aur ye sochta huN
Raayegaan ye hunar na jaaye kahiN

Aao kuch der ro hi len ‘Nasir’
Phir ye dariya utar na jaaye kahiN

 

Insha Ji Utho, Ab Kooch Karo, Is Shahr MaiN Ji Ka Lagana Kya …

انشإ جی اٹھو اب کوچ کرو، اس شہر میں جی کو لگانا کیا
وحشی کو سکوں سے کیا مطلب، جوگی کا نگر میں ٹھکانہ کیا

اس دل کے دریدہ دامن میں دیکھو تو سہی،سوچو تو سہی
جس جھولی میں سو چھید ہوئے،اس جھولی کا پھیلانا کیا

شب بیتی چاند بھی ڈوب چلا، زنجیر پڑی دروازے میں
کیوں دیر گئے گھر آئے ہو، سجنی سے کرو گے بہانہ کیا

اس حسن کے سچے موتی کو ہم دیکھ سکیں اور چھو نہ سکیں
جسے دیکھ سکیں پر چھو نہ سکیں، وہ دولت کیا خزانہ کیا

پھر ہجر کی لمبی رات میں سنجوک کی ہے تو ایک گھڑی
جو دل میں ہے لب پر آنے دو شرمانہ کیا گھبرانا کیا

اس روز کو ان کو دیکھا ہے اب خوان کا عالم لگتا ہے
اس روز جو ان سے بات ہوئی وہ بات بھی کیا افسانہ کیا

اس کو بھی جلا دہکتے ہوئے من، اک شعلہ آگ بھبھولا بن
یوں آنسو میں بہہ جانا کیا، یوں مٹی میں مل جانا کیا

جب شہر کے لوگ نہ رستہ دیں،کیوں بن میں نہ جا بس رام کریں
دیوانوں کی سی نہ بات کرے تو اور کرے دیوانہ کیا

 

Insha Ji Utho, Ab Kooch Karo, Iss Shahr Mai Ji Ka Lagana Kya
Wahshi Ko Sukoo’N Say Kya Matlab, Jogi Ka Nagar MaiN Thikana Kya

Iss Dil K Dareeda Daaman Ko, Dekho To Sahi, Socho To Sahi
Jiss Jholi Mai Sau Chaid Huay, Uss Jholi Ka Phailana Kya

Shab Beeti Chaand Bhi Doob Chala, Zanjeer Pari Darvazay Mai
KyuN Dair Gaaye Ghar Aaye Ho, Sajni Say Karo Gay Bahana Kya

Phir Hijar Ki Lambi Raat Miaan, Sanjog Ki To Hai Aik Ghari
Jo Dil Mai Hai Lab Par Aanay Do, Sharmana Kya Ghabrana Kya

Uss Roz Jo Unko Dekha Hai, Abb Khuwaab Ka Aalam Lagta Hai
Uss Roz Jo Unn Say Baat Huee, Wo Baat Bhi Thi Afsana Kya

Iss Husan K Suchchay Moti Ko, Hum Dekh Sakain Par Chhoo Na SakaiN
Jise Dekh Sakain Par Chu Na Sakain, Wo Daulat Kya Wo Khazana Kya

Usko Bhi Jala Dukhtay Huay Mun, Ik Shola Aag Bhabhuka Bann
Younh Aansu Mai Behh Jana Kya, Younh Maati Mai Mil Jana Kya

Jab Shahr K Log Na Rasta DaiN, KyuN Bann Mai Na Ja Basraam Kare
Deewano’n Ki See Na Baat Karay, To Aur Karay Dewana Kya

(Ibn E Insha)

 

Is se pahale ke …

Is se pahale ke be-vafaa ho jaayeN
KyuN na ae dost ham judaa ho jaayeN

Tuu bhii hiire se ban gayaa pat_thar
Ham bhii kal jane kya se kya ho jaayeN

Tuu ke yakta tha, be-shumar hooa
Ham bhii tooteN to jabaja ho jaayeN

Ham bhii majbuuriyoN ka uzr kareN
Aur kahiiN aur mubtalaa ho jaayeN

Ham agar manzileN naa ban paayeN
ManziloN tak kaa raastaa ho jaayeN!!

Dair say soch meiN haiN parwaanay
Rakh ho jaayeN, ya hawaa ho jaayeN

Ishq bhii khel hai nasiibo.n kaa
Khaak ho jaaye.n kimiyaa ho jaaye.n

Ab ke gar tuu mile to ham tujh se
Aise lipTeN terii qabaa ho jaayeN

Bandagii ham ne chhoR dii hai ‘Faraz’
Kyaa kareN log jab Khudaa ho jaayeN

 

Mere khudaa mujhe …

Mere khudaa mujhe itnaa to mo’tabar kar de
MaiN jis makaan meN rahtaa huuN usko ghar kar de

Yah roshnii ke ta’aaqub meN bhaagtaa huaa din
Jo thak gayaa hai to ab isko muKhtasar kar de

MaiN zindagii ki dua maangne lagaa huN bahut
Jo ho sake to duaaoN ko be-asar kar de

Sitaara-e-sahrii Duubne ko aayaa hai
Zaraa koii mere suuraj ko baaKhabar kar de

Qabiila-daar kamaaneN kaRakne vaalii haiN
Mere lahuu kii gavaahii mujhe niDar kar de

Main apne khab se kat kar jiyuN to mere khuda
Ujaar de meri mittee ko darbadar karde

Merii zamiin meraa aaKhrii havaalaa hai
So maiN rahuuN na rahuuN us ko baar-var kar de

 

Dayaar-E-Dil Ki Raat MeN CharaaGh Sa Jalaa Gayaa …

Dayaar E dil ki raat meN charaaGH saa jalaa gayaa
Milaa nahiN to kyaa huaa wo Shakl to dikhaa gayaa

 

JudaaioN ke ZakHm dard E Zindagi ne bhar diye
Tujhe bhi NeeNd aa gayi mujhe bhi Sabr aa gayaa

 

Yeh subh ki SafediyaaN yeh dopahar ki ZardiyaaN
Ab Aaine meN deKhtaa hooN maiN kahaaN chalaa gayaa

 

Pukarti haiN FursateN kahaaN gayiN wo SohbateN
ZameeN nigal gayi unheN yaa Aasmaan khaa gayaa

 

Wo dosti to kHair ab Naseeb-e-dushmanaaN hui
Wo cHoTi cHoTi RanjishoN kaa lutf bhi chalaa gayaa

 

Yeh kis kHushi ki Ret par GHamoN ko NeeNd aa gayi
Wo lehr kis taraf gayi ye maiN kahaaN samaa gayaa

 

Gaye dinoN ki Laash par paRe rahoge kab talak??
UTho amal-kasho K Aaftaab sar pe aa gayaa

 

Musalsal Bekali Dil Ko Rahi Hai …

Musalsal bekalee dil ko rahee hai
Magar jeene ki surat to rahee hai

Main kyun phirta huN tanha maara maara
Ye bastee chain se kyuN so rahee hai

Chale dil se ummeedoN ke musaafir
ye nagari aaj Khaali ho rahee hai

Na samajho tum ise shor-e-bahaaraaN
KhazaaN pattoN mein chhup ke ro rahee hai

Hamare ghar ki diivaaroN pe ‘Nasir’
Udaasee baal khole so rahee hai

 

Garmi-e-hasrat …

Garmi-e-hasrat-e-naakaam se jal jaate hain
Hum charagoN ki tarah shaam se jal jaate hain

Bach nikalate hain agar atih-e-sayyal se hum
Shola-e-atish-e-gulfaam se jal jaate hain

Khudnumaayi to nahin shewaa-e-arbaab-e-wafaa
jin ko jalnaa ho wo aaram se jal jaate hain

Shama’ jis aag mein jalti hai numaayish k liye
Ham usi aag mein gumnaam se jal jaate hain

Jab bhi aata hai mera naam tere naam ke saath
Jane kyun log mere naam se jal jaate hain

Rabt-baaham pe hamein kya na kahenge dushman
Ashnaa jab tere paighaam se jal jaata hain

 

Ek hunar hai …

Ek hunar hai jo kar gayaa huuN maiN
Sab ke dil se utar gayaa huuN maiN

Kaise apnii haNsii ko zabt karuuN??
Sun rahaa huuN ke ghar gayaa huuN maiN

Kyaa bataauuN ke mar nahiiN paataa
Jiite ji jab se mar gayaa huuN maiN

Ab hai bus apna saamnaa darpesh
Har kisii se guzar gayaa huuN maiN

Vohii naaz-o-adaa, vohii Ghamze
Sar-ba-sar aap par gayaa huuN maiN

Ajab ilzaam huuN zamaane kaa
Ke yahaaN sab ke sar gayaa huuN maiN

Kabhii Khud tak pahunch nahiiN paayaa
Jab keh vaaN umr bhar gayaa huuN maiN

Tum se jaanaaN milaa huuN jis din se
Be-tarah, Khud se dar gayaa huuN maiN

Kuu–e–jaanaaN meN sog barpaa hai
Ke achaanak, sudhar gayaa huuN maiN

 

Jaisaa huN vaisaa kyuuN huN …

Jaisaa huN vaisaa kyuuN huN samjhaa saktaa thaa maiN
Tumne puuchhaa to hotaa, batlaa saktaa thaa maiN

Aasuudaa rahne kii Khaahish maar gayii varnaa
Aage aur bahut aage tak jaa saktaa thaa maiN!

ChhoTii moTii ek lahar hii thii mere andar
Ek lahar se kyaa tuufaan uThaa saktaa thaa maiN

KahiN kahiN se kuchh misr’e, ek aadh Ghazal, kuchh she’r
Is puunjii par kitnaa shor machaa saktaa thaa maiN

Jaise sab likhte rahte haiN GhazleN, nazmeN, geet
Vaise likh likh kar ambaar lagaa saktaa thaa maiN

 

Terii Khushbu kaa …

Terii Khushbu kaa pataa karti hai
Mujh pe ehasaan hawaa karti hai

Shab ki tanhaai meN ab to aksar
Guftagu tujh se raha karti hai

Dil ko us raah pe chalanaa he nahiN
Jo mujhe tujh se judaa karti hai

Zindagi meri thi lekin ab to
Tere kahne meN raha karti hai

Us ne dekhaa hi nahiN warnaa ye aaNkh
Dil kaa Ahawaal kahaa karti hai

Be-niyaaz-e-kaaf-e-dariyaa angusht
Ret par naam likhaa karti hai

Shaam parte he kisi shaKhs ki yaad
Kuuchaa-e-jaaN meN sadaa karti hai

Mujh se bhi us ka hai waisa hi suluk
Haal jo teraa ana karti hai

Dukh huaa kartaa hai kuchh aur bayaaN
Baat kuchh aur huaa karti hai

Abr barse to inaayat us ki
ShaaKh to sirf duaa karti hai

Humne dekhi hai wo ujli saa’at
Raat jab she’r kaha karti hai

Mas’ala jab bhi chiraagooN ka uThe
Faisalaa sirf hawaa kerti hai

 

Gaahe gaahe bas ab …

Gaahe gaahe bas ab yahi ho kya?
Tumse mil kar bahut khushi ho kya?

Mil rahi ho bare tapaak ke saath,
Mujhko yeksar bhula chuki ho kya?

Yaad hain ab bhi apne khaab tumheN?
Mujhse mil kar udaas bhi ho kya?

Bas mujhe yun hi ik khayal aaya,
Sochti ho to sochti ho kya?

Ab meri koi zindagi hi nahin,
Ab bhi tum meri zindagi ho kya?

Kya kaha, ishq jaawidaani hai?
Aakhri baar mil rahi ho kya?

Haan, faza yaan’ ki soyi soyi si hai
To bahut taiz roshni ho kya?

Mere sab tanz be-asar hi rahe,
Tum bohat door ja chuki ho kya?

Dil mein ab soz-e-intezar nahin,
Shamm-e ummeed bujh gayi ho kya?

Is samandar pe tashna kaam huN maiN,
‘Baan’ tum ab bhi beh rahi ho kya

 

Jab kisii se koii …

Jab kisii se koii gilaa rakhanaa
Saamane apne aaiiinaa rakhanaa

YuuN ujaaloN se vaasta rakhanaa
Shammaa ke paas hii hava rakhanaa

Ghar ki taa’miir chaahe jaisi ho
Is meN rone ki kuchh jagah rakhanaa

MasjideN haiN namaaziyoN ke liye
Apane ghar meN kahiiN Khudaa rakhanaa

Milnaa julanaa jahaaN zaruurii ho
Milne-julane kaa hausalaa rakhanaa

 

Aaraaish-E-Khyaal Bhi Ho Dil Kushaa Bhi Ho …

Aaraaish-e Khayaal bhii ho dil kushaa bhi ho
Wo dard ab kahaaN jise jee chahta bhi ho!

Ye kya k roz aik saa gham aik see umeed,
Is ranj-e be-khumaar ki ab intehaa bhi ho.

Ye kyaa k aik tor se guzare tamaam umr,
Jee chaahtaa hai ab koi tere sivaa bhi ho.

Toote kabhi to khuwab-e shab-o-roz ka tilism,
Itne hujoom main koi chehraa naya bhi ho.

Dewangii-e shoq ko ye dhun hai in dinon,
Ghar bhi ho aur be-dar-o-deewaar sa bhi ho.

Juz dil koi makaan nahin dahar main jahaan,
Rah-zan ka khof bhi na rahe dar khulaa bhi ho.

Har zarra aik mahamil-e-ibrat hai dasht ka,
Lekin kise dikhaaoon koi dekhtaa bhi ho.

Har shay pukaaratii hai pas-e pardaa-e-sukoot,
Lekin kise sunaaoon koi hum-navaa bhi ho.

Fursat main sun shaguftagii-e Gunchaa ki sadaa,
Ye wo sukhan nahin jo kisii ne kahaa bhi ho.

Baithaa hai aik shakhs mere paas dair se,
Koi bhalaa-saa ho to humain dekhtaa bhi ho.

Bazm-e sukhan bhi ho sukhan-e garm k liye,
Taa-uus boltaa ho to jangal haraa bhi ho.

 

Raqs Karne Kaa Milaa …

Raqs karne kaa milaa hukm jo dariyaaoN meN
Ham ne Khush hoke bhaNvar baaNdh liye paaoN meN

Un ko bhi hai kisi bhige hue manzar ki talaash
Boond tak bo na sake jo kabhii saharaaoN meN

Ae mere ham-safaro tum bhii thaake-haare ho
Dhuup ki tum to milaavaT na karo chaaoN meN

Jo bhi aataa hai bataataa hai nayaa koi ilaaj
Bat na jaaye teraa biimaar masiihaaoN meN

Hausalaa kis meN hai Yusuf ki Kharidaari kaa
Ab to mahNgaayi ke charche haiN zuleKhaaN meN

Jis barahman ne kaha hai k ye saal achchha hai
Us ko dafnaao mere haath ki rekhaaoN meN

Woh khuda hai kisi tootay hue dil me hoga
MasjidoN me use dhoondho na kalissaaoN meN

Hum ko aapas me muhabbat nahi karne dete
Ik yahi aib hai is shehr k daanaaoN meN

Mujh se karte haiN Qateel is liye Kuch log hasad
KyuN mere she’r hain maqbool haseenaaoN men

 

Teri bataain hi sunaanay aaye..

Teri bataain hi sunaanay aaye
Dost bhi dil hi dukhaanay aaye

Phool khilte hain to hum sochte hain
Tere aanay ke zamaanay aaye

Aisi kuch chup si lagi hai jaise

Ishq tanha hai sar-e munzil-e ghum

Ab to ronay se bhi dil dukhta hai
Shayed ab hosh thikaanay aaye

Kya kaheeN phir koi basti ujRi

So raho maut ke pahlU mein Faraz

Neend kis waqt na jaanay aaye

Meri Zindagi To Firaaq Hai…

Meri Zindagi to firaaq hai, wo azal se dil main makeeN sahi
Wo nigaah-E-shauq se door haiN, rag-E-jaaN se laakh QareeN sahi

 

HamaiN jaan deni hai aik din, wo kisi tarah wo kaheeN sahi
HamaiN aap khainchiye daar par, jo nahiN koi to hameeN sahi

 

Sar-E-toor ho, sar-E-hashr ho, hamain intezaar qabool hai
Wo kabhi mileN,wo kahin mileN,wo kabhi sahi, wo kaheeN sahi

 

Na ho un pe kuchh mera bass nahiN, ke ye aashqi hai hawas nahiN
MaiN unhi ka tha, main unhi ka huN, wo mere nahiN, to nahiN sahi

 

Mujhe bhaiThne ki jagah milay, meri aarzoo ka bharam rahay
Teri anjuman meN agar nahiN, teri anjuman ke qareeN sahi

 

Tera dar to hum ko na mil saka, teri rahguzar ki zameeN sahi
HamaiN sajda karne se kaam hai, jo wahaN nahiN to yaheeN sahi

 

Meri Zindagi ka naseeb hai, nahiN door mujh se qareeb hai
Mujhe uska Gham to naseeb hai, wo agar nahiN to naheeN sahi

 

Jo ho faislaa woh sunaaiye, use hashr par na uthaaiye
Jo karaiNge aap sitam wahaN, wo abhi sahi, wo yaheeN sahi

 

UnheN dekhne ki jo lou lagi, to ‘Naseer’ dekh hi laiNge hum
Wo hazaar aaNkh se door hoN, wo hazaar pardah nasheeN sahi

( Pir Naseer Udin Naseer Shah )

 

Dil DhaRakne Ka Sabab Yaad Aya …

Dil dhaRakne ka sabab yaad aya
woh teri yaad thee ab yaad aya

Aaj mushkil tha sambhalna ae dost
Tu museebat mein ajab yaad aya

Din guzara tha bari mushkil se
Phir tera waada-E-shab yaad aya

Haal-e-dil hum bhee sunatay lekin
Jab woh rukhsat hua tab yaad aya

BaiTh kar saya-e-gul mein Naasir
Hum bahut royay woh jab yaad aya…

Suna Hai Log Use Aankh Bhar Ke Dekhte HaiN …

Suna hai log use aaNkh bhar ke dekhte haiN

Suna hai us ko bhi hai shair-O-shayeri se shaGhaf
So hum bhi mo’jeze apne hunar ke dekhte haiN

Suna hai bole to batoN se phool jhaRte haiN

Suna hai raat usay chaaNd takta rahta hai
Sitaaray baam-E-falak se utar ke dekhte haiN

Suna hai din ko use titliyaaN sataati haiN
Suna hai raat ko jugnoo Thahar ke dekhte haiN

Suna hai hashr haiN us ki ghazaal si ankheN
Suna hai us ko hiran dasht bhar ke dekhte haiN

Suna hai raat se baRh kar haiN kaakulaiN us ki

Usne sukoot-e-shab …

 

Usne sukoot-e-shab mein bhi apna payaam rakh diya
Hijr ki raat baam per maah-e-tamaam rakh diya

Aamad-e-dost ki naveed koo-e-wafa mein garm thi
Meine bhi ik charagh sa dil sar-e-shaam rakh diya

Shiddat-e-tishnagi mein bhi ghairat-e-maikashi rahi
Usne jo phair li nazar meine bhi jaam rakh diya

Usne nazar nazar mein he aisay bhalay sukhan kahey
Meine to uske paaon mein saara kalaam rakh diya

Dekho woh merey khwaab thay dekho yeh mere zakhm hain
Meine to sab hisaab-e-jaan barsar-e-aam rakh diya

Ake bahaar ne bhi keen aisi shararatein ke bus
Kubk-e-Dari ki chaal mein tera khiraam rakh diya

Jo bhi mila usi ka dil halqa baghosh-e-yaar tha
Usne to saaray shehr ko karke ghulaam rakh diya

Aur faraz chahiyein kitni mohabbatein tujhe
Maaon ne tere naam pe bachoon ka naam rakh diya

An Intro to the Ghazal
january 21, 2008, posted in uncategorized
What is Ghazal

Ghazal in short, is a collection of Sher’s which follow the rules of ‘Matla’, ‘Maqta’, ‘Beher’, ‘Kaafiyaa’ and ‘Radif’. So to know what Ghazal is, it’s necessary to know what these terms mean.

To understand these terms easily , we will take an example.

  1. koi ummid bar nahin aati
    koi surat nazar nahin aati
  2. aage aati thi haale dil par hasi
    ab kisi baat par nahin aati
  3. hum wahan hain, jahan se humko bhi
    kucch hamaari khabar nahin aati
  4. kaabaa kis muh se jaaoge ‘Ghalib’
    sharm tumko magar nahin aati
    What is a Sher ?

It’s a poem of two lines. This definition is deceptively simple. Please note that, every Sher is a poem in itself! A Sher does not need, anything around it, to convey the message.

All the 4 stanzas in our example are independent poems, Sher’s. So Ghazal is necessarily a collection of two-line-poems called Sher.
[ So the Rafi solo “rang aur noor ki baaraat kise pesh karu” is NOT a Ghazal, as every stanza is of 3 lines, and not 2. ]

What are other restrictions?

Many, and important ones.

[ Any collection of Sher’s is not Ghazal. Some good examples are ; the famous Mukesh song from Yehoodi, “yeh mera deewaanaapan hai” ; and the title song of “dil apana aur preet parayi”. Each stanza in these songs can be considered as an independent Sher, but they are NOT Ghazal’s.
To understand, why, we have to wait till ‘Kaafiyaa, ‘Radif’. ]

What is ‘Beher’ ?

‘Beher’ is the ‘meter’ of the Sher’s. It can be considered as the length of the Sher. Both the lines in the Sher MUST be of same ‘Beher’. And all the Sher’s in one Ghazal MUST be of the same ‘Beher’. There are 19 (!!) kinds of ‘Beher’. But in simple terms, ‘Beher’ is categorized in 3 classes. Short, medium, long.
[ The examples in [] are my additions, from Hindi Films. ]

Small :

ahale dairo-haram reh gaye
tere deewane kam reh gaye
[ Also Talat song, “dil-e-nadan tuze hua kya hai” ]

Medium :

umr jalwo me basar ho, ye zaruri to nahin
har shab-e-gam ki seher ho, ye zaruri to nahin
[ And by Gulzar, “ruke ruke se kadam, ruk ke baar baar chale” ]

Long :

ai mere humnashin, chal kahin aur chal, is chaman me ab apanaa guzaaraa nahin
baat hoti gulon ki, to seh lete hum, ab to kaaton pe bhi haq hamaaraa nahin
[ The filmfare winner, “Manzile apani jagah hai” !! Yes ! It IS a Ghazal.

And the Shayar is Prakash Mehra !! surprise , surprise !! ]

So Ghazal is a collection of Sher’s of SAME ‘Beher’.

What is ‘Radif’ ?
In a Ghazal, second line of all the Sher’s MUST end with the SAME word/s. This repeating common words is the ‘Radif’ of the Ghazal.

In our example, the ‘Radif’ is “nahin aati”.
[ Sometimes, the Ghazal becomes known by its ‘Radif’. eg. “jaraa aahista chal” sung by Pankaj Udhas.]

What is ‘Kaafiyaa’ ?

‘Kaafiyaa’ is the rhyming pattern which all the words before ‘Radif’ MUST have. In our example the ‘Kaafiyaa’ is “bar”, “nazar”, “par”, “magar” etc. This is a necessary requirement.

Something which is followed even in the exceptions to all these rules.

So Ghazal is a collection of Sher’s of same ‘Beher’, ending in same ‘Radif’ and having same ‘Kaafiyaa’.

[ That’s the reason, why “yeh mera diwanapan hai” etc. are NOT Ghazals.

There is no common thing which can be called ‘Kaafiyaa’ and ‘Radif’. ]

What is ‘Matla’ ?

The first Sher in the Ghazal MUST have ‘Radif’ in its both lines. This Sher is called ‘Matla’ of the Ghazal and the Ghazal is usually known after its ‘Matla’. There can be more than one ‘Matla’ in a Ghazal. In such a case the second one is called ‘Matla-e-saani’ or ‘Husn-e-matla’.
In our example, the first Sher is the ‘Matla’.

What is ‘Maqta’ ?
A Shayar usually has an alias ie. ‘takhallus’ eg. Mirza Asadullakhan used ‘Ghalib’ as his ‘takhallus’ and is known by that. Other examples are ‘Daag’ Dehlvi, ‘Mir’ Taqi Mir, Said ‘Rahi’, Ahmed ‘Faraz’ etc. There is a Sher in a Ghazal, the last one, which has the Shayar’s ‘takhallus’ in it. [ A Shayar, can use the ‘Maqta’ very intelligently. He can “talk to himself” like one in our example. I have lots of favourite Sher’s which are ‘Maqta’ of some Ghazal.
Some gems are
koi nam-o-nishan puchhe to ai kaasid bataa denaa,
takhallus ‘Daag’ hai, aur aahiqon ke dil me rehte hai

and

jab bhi milte hain, to kehte hain, “kaise ho ‘Shakil’”,
iske aage to koi baat nahin hoti hai

The first one uses the meaning of the ‘takhallus’ to create the magic, and the second one is just simple, simply beautiful. ]

To summarize, Ghazal is a collection of Sher’s (independent two-line poems), in which there is atleast one ‘Matla’, one ‘Maqta’ and all the Sher’s are of same ‘Beher’ and have the same ‘Kaafiyaa’ and ‘Radif’.

EXCEPTIONS AND IMP. POINTS TO NOTE

  1. Ghazal is just a form. It is independent of any language. eg. in Marathi also, there can be (and there are) good Ghazals.
  2. Some Ghazal’s do NOT have any ‘Radif’. Rarely. Such Ghazal’s are called “gair-muraddaf” Ghazal.
  3. Although, every Sher, should be an independent poem in itself, it is possible, that all the Sher’s are on the same theme. What famous example can be other than “chupke chupke raat din aasun bahaanaa yaad hai”.
  4. In modern Urdu poetry, there are lots of Ghazal’s which do NOT follow the restriction of same ‘Beher’ on both the lines of Sher. [ My example in ‘Maqta’, the Sher by Shakil, is one. ] But even in these Ghazal’s, ‘Kaafiyaa’ and ‘Radif’ are present.
  5. The restriction of ‘Maqta’ is really very loose. Many many Ghazal’s do NOT have any ‘Maqta’. [ I think ‘Maqta’ was used in the earlier times, as a way to keep the credit. But since this is traditional, many Ghazal’s do have a ‘Maqta’ just for the sake of it. Sometimes the name of the Shayar comes unnaturally in the last Sher of the Ghazal.

Some Great Poets and their Representative Ghazals

Ahmad Faraz is probably the best and the most renowned poet of urdu of our time. The command which he got over his versatile poetry is what everyone adores. Let us pay tribute to this wonderful and prodigious poet and have a group of like-minded ppl sharing our opinions.

Usne sukoot-e-shab mein bhi apna payaam rakh diya
Hijr ki raat baam per maah-e-tamaam rakh diya

Aamad-e-dost ki naveed koo-e-wafa mein garm thi
Meine bhi ik charagh sa dil sar-e-shaam rakh diya

Shiddat-e-tishnagi mein bhi ghairat-e-maikashi rahi
Usne jo phair li nazar meine bhi jaam rakh diya

Usne nazar nazar mein he aisay bhalay sukhan kahey
Meine to uske paaon mein saara kalaam rakh diya

Dekho woh merey khwaab thay dekho yeh mere zakhm hain
Meine to sab hisaab-e-jaan barsar-e-aam rakh diya

Ake bahaar ne bhi keen aisi shararatein ke bus
Kubk-e-Dari ki chaal mein tera khiraam rakh diya

Jo bhi mila usi ka dil halqa baghosh-e-yaar tha
Usne to saaray shehr ko karke ghulaam rakh diya

Aur faraz chahiyein kitni mohabbatein tujhe
Maaon ne tere naam pe bachoon ka naam rakh diya
