terii yaad mei sabb guzar gaye. . . .. . shab-0-roz kaya, maah-o-saal kaya.


tujhe naaz haii k main husn hoon
mere gulistaaN ko zawaal kaya
mujhe fakhR haii k mae ishQ hoon
j0 jala na dun tu kamaal kaya

mje zindagii kii dua na de
mujhe zindagii kii talab nhe
merii maut ko jo taal de
is zindagii kii majaal kaya

hamien manziloN kii khabR nhe
hamien rah-guzR kii talaash hei
us rah-guzr pe nikal parrayy
tu urooj kaya, zawaal kaya

tere pyaaR mei shikweyy, gileyy
terii in adaa0N pe marr chalayy
jo hayaaT thii tujhe waaR dii
tu jawab kaya, aur sawal kaya

thii jo ik ada-e-dil-barii
saarii umeR ussii pe waar dii

sulag raha hoon mein dheery dheery, magar kisi par ayaa’N nahe hy


sulag raha hoon mein dheery dheery, magar kisi par ayaa’N nahe hy
wo aag dil mein lagi hy jis mein, tapish hy lukin dhooa’N nahe hy

tumhary gham ne sikha dia hy, mujhy har ik gham se payar karna
gham-e-jaha’N bhi, yaqeen jano, mizaaj-e-dil par garaa’N nahe hy

khuda ke basti mein har kadam par, koi hy giryaa’N kisi k gham par
yeh dard to dard-e-mushtarak hy, yeh aankh pur namm kaha’N nahe hy

matta-e-umr-e-aziz sari, ganwa chuky, par safar hy jari
ajeeb souda hy aashqi ka, keh fikr-e-sood-o-ziyaa’N nahe hy

meri khamoshi pe hansny walo, yeh bhool kar bhi na soch lena
keh mery pehloo mein dil nahe hy, keh mery munh mein zubaa’N nahe hy

ghazal kaho AITBAAR SAJID, isi tarapti hue navaa mein
yeh tarz, yeh dil gudaaz lehja, samaa’to’N par garaa’N nahe hy

(Aitbaar Sajid from Mujhy Koi Sham Udhaar Do)

kuch muhtasibo’N ke khalwat mein


kuch muhtasibo’N ke khalwat mein, kuch vaa’iz ky ghar jati hy
hum bada kasho’N ky hissy ke, ab jaam mein kam tar jati hy

yoon arz-e-talab se kab ay dil, pathar dil pani hoty hain
tum lakh raza ke khoo dalo, kab khoo-e-sitamgar jati hy

be daad garo’N ke basti hy, yaa’N daad kaha’N, khayraat kaha’N
sar phorti phirti hy nada’N, farayad jo dar dar jati hy

haan, jaa’N ky zayaa’N ke hum ko bhi, tashveesh hy lykin kya ke jiay
har rah jo udhar ko jati hy, maqtal sy guzar kar jati hy

hum ehl-e-qafas tanha bhi nahe, har roz naseem-e-subh-e-watan
yado’N sy muattar aati hy, ashko’N sy munawar jati hy

Kis raat ki aankhon main paiman-e-sahar ho ga


Kis raat ki aankhon main paiman-e-sahar ho ga
Yay khwaab jo kompal hai, kis rutt main shajar ho ga

Aanchal ki hawa rakhna, loo iss ki bacha rakhna
Yay shama jidhar ho gi, parwana udhar ho ga

Jab raat kay parday say phir raat nikal ayay
Uss waqt kidhar jayay, jo ehhl-e-nazar ho ga

Tareekh kay chakar main wo morh nahi aata
Jab shaad makee.n hon gay, aabaad nagar ho ga

Bujhtay huay taroon ki jhilmil bhi ghaneemat hai
Iss tehri hui shab main, kuch wehm-e-safar ho ga

Afkaar pay pehra hai, qanoon yay tehra hai
Jo sahib-e-izzat hai wo shehr-e-badar ho ga

Mehsoos yay hota hai, har jalta hua tara
Guzray huay waqton main ik zakhm-e-safar ho ga

Sehmay huay panchi ki awaaz batati hai
Uss ka bhi yaheen koi, jalta hua ghar ho ga …
