Kaisa Maazi Tha Kya Hai Haal Apna …

 

Kaisa maazi tha kya hai haal apna
Dekhnaa tha hamaiN zawaal apna

Aur bhi ho gaye haiN hum tanhaa
Ek zara aaya tha khayaal apna

Dasht ho baaz-gasht  se aabaad
Koyee duhrayee to sawaal apna

Yeh safar khatm yuN nahi hoga
Raasta badleN mah O saal apna

Dekh hum phir jala rahe hain Chiragh
Ae hawa hauslaa nikaal apna

Ishq Daam O Diram Se Sharminda …

 

Ishq daam O diram se sharminda

Hum teri chashm E nam se sharminda

Har taraf be-hisii ka pahraa tha

Hum hue apne dam se sharminda

Naa’ra E khalq hai mazid, mazid!

Aap dast E karam se sharminda

Khushk saali ki aahateN paake

Ashk haiN fart E gham se sharminda

Meri majruh ungliyaN ab haiN

Zulf E janaN ke kham se sharminda

 

Amir E Shahr Se Sayil BaRa Hai …

 

Amir E shahr se sayil baRa hai
Bahut naadaar, lekin dil baRa hai

Lahoo jamne se pahle khuN-baha de
YahaaN insaaf se Qatil baRa hai

ChaTaanoN meN ghira hai, aur chup hai
Samumdar se kahiN saahil baRa hai

Kisi basti meN hogi such ki hurmat
Hamare shahr meN baatil baRa hai

Jo zil-lul-lah per eemaan laye
Wohi danaoN meN aaqil baRa hai

Use kho kar bahaaye-dard paayii
ZayaaN chhota tha aur haasil baRa hai

Azaab Yeh Bhi Kisi Aur Par Nahi Aaya …

 

Azaab yeh bhi kisi aur par nahi aaya
K ek umr chale aur ghar nahi aaya

Us ek khaab ki hasrat meN jal bujhi aaNkheN
Wo ek khaab K ab tak nazer nahi aaya

KareN to kis se kareN naarasaiyoN ka gila
Safar tamaam huaa hum-safar nahi aaya


DiloN ki bat badan ki zabaaN se kah dete
Ye chaahte the magar dil idhar nahi aaya

Ajib hi tha mere daur E gumrahi ka rafiq
BichhaaR gaya to kabhi laut kar nahi aaya


Harim E lafz O ma’aani se nisbateN bhi rahiN
Magar saliqa E arz E hunar nahii aaya
