iss shehar mein aesi bhi qayamt na hue thi


iss shehar mein aesi bhi qayamt na hue thi
tanha thy magar, khud se to vehshat na hue thi

yeh din hy k, yaro’N ka bharosa bhi nahe hy
wo din thy k, dushman se bhi nafrat na hue thi

ab saans ka ehsas bhi ik baar-e-gira’N hy
khud apne khilaaf aesi baghavat na hue thi

ujray huay iss dil k har ik zakhm se poocho
iss shehr mein kis kis se muhabbat na hue thi?

ab tery qareeb aa k bhi, kuch soch raha hoon
pehly tujhy kho kar bhi, nadamat na hue thi

khawabo’N ke hawa raas thi jab tak mujhy Mohsin
yoo’N jaagty rehna meri aadat na hue thi

Mujhe khud se hain shikaytain, Mujhe zindagi se gilaa nahin


Mujhe khud se hain shikaytain, Mujhe zindagi se gilaa nahin,
Ke jo chaha mene woh paa liya, Nahin aesa kuch jo mila nahin,

Mere aas paas hai roshni, Mere raaston mein chirag hain,
Yeh tere karam ka hai mojzaa, Meri justuju ka silaa nahin,

Teri aankh se jo haseen ho, Woh nigaah jag main bani nahin,
Tere rukh ko jis se misaal doon, Koi aesa phool khilaa nahin,

Yeh jo teri zulf ka hai haashia, Yeh jo tera chehra hai khush’numa,
Koi raat aesi siyaah nahin, Kisi subaah mein yeh jala nahin,

Yeh jo mehr-o-maa ki hain haaltain! Yeh jo aayino ki hain hairtain,
Hain azzal se sab yeh isi tarah, Koi apni jagha se hillaa nahin..

Zindagi se yehi gila hai mujhay


Zindagi se yehi gila hai mujhay
Tu buhat dair se mila hai mujhey

Tu muhabbat se koi chaal to chal
Haar jane ka hosla hai mujhay

Hum’safar chahiye hujoom nahi
Aik musafir bhi qafila hai mujhay

Dil dharakta nahi sulagta hai
Woh jo khawahish thi aabla hai mujhay

Lab kusha hoon tu iss yaqeen k saath
Qatal honay ka hausla hai mujhay

Kaun janay k chahto’n may Faraz
Kya ganwaya hai kya mila hai mujhay!

Kohkan ho k Qais ho k Faraz
Sab mein ik shakhs hi mla hai mujhay

Tum Aisa Karna Keh Koi Jugnoo Koi Sitara Sambhaal Rakhna


Tum Aisa Karna Keh Koi Jugnoo Koi Sitara Sambhaal Rakhna
Mere Andhero’n Ki Fikar Choro Bas Apne Ghar Ka Khayal Rakhna

Ujaar Mosam Mein Rait Dharti Pe Fasal Boi Thi Chaandni Ki
Ab Is Mein Ugnay Lagay Andhere To Kaisa Jee Mein Malaal Rakhna

Diyaar-e-Ulfat Mein Ajnabi Ko Safar hai Darpesh Zulmato’n ka
Kahi’n Woh Raahon Mein Kho Na Jaaye Zara Darechay Ujaal Rakhna

Wo Rasm-o-Raah He Nahi’n Rahe Jab To Naamay Kis Kaam Ke Tumhare
Udhar Se Guzraa Kabhi To LooN Ga Mere Khato’N Ko Nikaal Rakhna

Bicharne Wale Ne Waqt-e-Rukhsat Kuch Is Nazar Se Palat Ke Dekha
Keh Jaise Woh Bhi Yeh Keh Raha Ho Tum Apne Ghar Ka Khayal Rakhna

Yeh Dhoop Chaao’n Ka Khel Hai Ya Khizaa’n Bahaaro’n Ki Ghaat Mein Hai
Naseeb-e-Subh Ujrooj Ho To Nazar Mein Shaam-e-Zawaal Rakhna

Kisay Khabar Thi Keh Kab Ye Mosam Uraa Ke Rakh De Ga Khaak "Aazar"
Tum Ehtiyatan Zamee’n Ke Sar Pe Falak Ki Chaadar Bhi Daal Rakhna

Aezaaz Ahmed Aazar

Tark e Taluqaat pe Roya na tu na mian


Tark-e-Taluqaat pe Roya na tu na mian
Lekin ye kia ke chain se soya na tu na main

Halaat ke talism ne pathra dia magar
Beete samay ki yaad main khoya na tu na main

Her chand ke ikhtilaaf ke pehlu hazar the
Waa kar saka magar lab-e-goya na tu na main

Nohay Faseel-e-zabt se unchay na ho sake
Khul kar dayar-e-sang main roya na tu na main

Jab bhi nazar uthti to falak ki taraf uthti
Bargushta aasman se goya na tu na main

Kahin Chaand Raahon main kho gaya


kahin chand rahon mein kho gaya, khain chandni bhi bhatak gai
mein charagh wo bhi bujha howa, meri raat kesey chamak gai….

meri dastaan ka urooj tha, teri narm palkon ki chha’oon mein
merey sath tha tujhey jagna, teri ankh kesey jhapak gai….

kabhi hum miley bhi to kia miley, wohi dorian wohi fasley
na kabhi hamarey qadam barhey, na kabhi tumhari jhijhak gai….

Tere Hath se Mere Hont tak wohi intzar ki Piyas hai
Mere Naam ki jo Sharab thi kahin raste mein Chhalak gai…

tujhey bhool janey ki koshishain, kabhi kamyaab na ho sakin
teri yad shakh-e-gulab hey, jo hawa chali to lachak gai….
