jo khoo-e-tasleem he na daaly, wo ihtaram-e-wafa he kya hy


yeh chand aansoo, yeh chand aahei’N, siwaey inn ky dhara he kya hy
zamana kya cheen ly ga hum sy, kisi ny hum ko dia he kya hy

tumhari aankho’N mein kesy aansoo, labo’N py kion uzr-e-by gunaahi
hamei’N to luttna tha, lutt gaey hum, tumhari is mein khataa he kya hy

kisi ny ynhi urrai ho ge, mein is py kesy yaqeen kr loon?
wo kya karein gy sitam kisi par, unhei’N tameez-e-jafa he kya hy

tabahio’N ka malaal he kya, shikayato’N ka sawaal he kya
guzar gae dil py jo bhi guzri, ab ahl-e-dil sy gila he kya hy

yeh keh k qaatil ky hath choomy, keh jaan-o-dil sab tery hawaly
jo khoo-e-tasleem he na daaly, wo ihtaram-e-wafa he kya hy

meri kahani abhi hy jaari, guzaar dn ga yeh raat saari
tumhara bhi tazkirah hy is mein, abhi tou tum ny suna he kya hy

na dasht chaany, na bann khangaaly, na koh paima bany hain SAJID
isi nadaamat py jee rahy hain, kisi ke kahatir kia he kya hy

AITBAAR SAJID from "DIL KE DEHLEEZ PAR"

kion zouq-e-shair dy k tamasha kia mujhy


Goongy labo’N pe harf-e-tamanna kia mujhy
kis kor chashm shab mein sitara kia mujhy

jab harf na shanaas, yaha’N lafz fehm hain
kion zouq-e-shair dy k tamasha kia mujhy

khushboo hy, chandni hy, lab-e-joo hy aur mei’N
kis by panah raat mein tanha kia mujhy

di tishnagi khuda ny, to chashmy bhi dy diay
seeny mein dasht, aankho’N mein daria kiya mujhy

mein yoo’N sambhal gae, keh teri by wafai ny
by aitbaario’N sy shanasaa kia mujhy

wo apni aik zaat mein, kul kainaat tha
dunia ke har fraib sy, milva dia mujhy

Parveen Shakir from "Khushboo"

Har chand sahara hai tere pyar ka dil ko : Nayyara Noor


har chand sahara hai tere pyar ka dil ko
rehta hai magar aik ajab khaf sa dil ko

woh khuaab k dekha na kabhi le ura neendain
woh dard k utha na kabhi kha gaya dil ko

yaan saans ka laina bhi guzar jana hai jee se
yaan marka e ishq bhi ik khel tha dil ko

woh aein to hairan woh jaein to pareshaan
yaa rab koi samjhaye yeh kya hogaya dil ko

Yeh kis ka tasavur hai : Jagjit Singh


.ye kis kaa tasavvur hai, ye kisakaa fasaanaa hai

jo ashk hai aa.Nkho.n me.n tasbiih kaa daanaa hai
 
jo un pe guzarti hai kis ne usay jana hai 
apni hi museebat hai apna hi fasana hai
 
aa.Nkho.n me.n namii sii hai chup-chup se vo baiThe hai.n

nazuk sii nigaaho.n me.n naazuk saa fasaanaa hai
 
ye ishq nahii.n aasaa.N itanaa to samajh liije

ek aag kaa dariyaa hai aur Duub ke jaanaa hai
 
yaa vo the Khafaa ham se yaa ham the Khafaa unase

kal un kaa zamaanaa thaa aaj apanaa zamaanaa hai

be rukhi tum ne bhi ke, uzar-e-zamana kar ke


be rukhi  tum ne bhi ke, uzar-e-zamana kar ke
hum bhi mehfil sy uth aaey hain, bahana kar ke

kitni batei’N, k na kehna thi’N, woh keh bheji hain
ab pashemaan hain, qaasid ko ravana kar ke

jaanty hain, wo tunak khoo hy, so apna ahvaal
hum suna dety hain, aouro’N ka fasana kar ke

kya kahei’n, kya hy un aankho’N mein, k rakh deti hain
aik achy bhaly insaa’N ko deewana kar ke

koi veerana-e-hasti ke khabar kya lataa
khud bhi hum bhool gaey, dafn khazana kar ke

aankh masroof-e-nazara thi, to hum khush thy Faraz
uss ne kya zulm kia, dil mein thikana kar ke

Idraak par muheet hai, arz-o-sama ka dukh


idraak par muheet hy, arz-o-samaa ka dukh
iss sy pary bhi, jo hy, wo hy maavraa ka dukh

dil ne kaha, na dekh soo-e-aasma’N, keh yun
barhta hy na rasai-e-dast-e-dua ka dukh

dil mein ab aur kya hy, jisy dhoondti hy khalq
kafi hy zindagi ko, shikast-e-anaa ka dukh

sun lo musafaraan-e-biabaan-e-sham-e-gham
bakhshy ga ibtada ka safar, intaha ka dukh

kion inn dino’N sawar hy do kashtio’N pe dil
chahat ik ajnabi ke, to ik aashnaa ka dukh

MOHSIN khiza’N ka naam, badal kar likho issy
nayabi-e-nuqoosh-e-kharaam-e-saba ka dukh
