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)

Qurb E Jaanan Ka Na Maikhaane Ka Mausam Aaya

Qurb-e-jaanaN ka na maikhaane ka mausam aaya
Phir se  be-sarfaa ujaR jaane ka mausam aaya

Kunj-e-Ghurbat meN kabhi gosha-e-zandan meN the hum
Jaan-e-jaaN jab bhi tere aane ka mausam aaya

Ab lahu rone ki khaahish, na lahu hone ki
Dil-e-zinda tere marjaane ka mausam aaya

Koocha-e-yaar se har fasal mein guzre hain magar
Shaayad ab jaaN se guzar jaane ka mausam aaya

Koi zanjeer koi harf-e-khirad le aaya
Fasal-e-gul aayi k diivaane ka mausam aaya

Sail-e-khuN shahr ki galiyoN meN dar aya hai Faraz
Aur too khush hai K ghar jaane ka mausam aaya

(Ahmed Faraz – Pas Andaz Mausam)

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

(Ahmed Faraz)

Har Aashna Mein KahaN Khooy-E-Mahramaana Woh

Har aashna mein kahaN khooy-e-mahramaana woh

K be-wafaa tha magar dost tha puraanaa woh

KahaN se layein ab aaNkhein use K rakhta tha

AdaawatoN mein bhi andaaz mukhlisaana woh

Jo abr tha to use tooT kar barasnaa tha

Yeh kya K aag laga kar hua rawaanaa woh

Pukaarte hain mah-o-saal manziloN ki tarah

Laga hai tosan-e-hasti ko taziyaanaa woh

Hamein bhi Gham-talabi ka nahi raha yaaraa

Tere bhi rang nahi gardish-e-zamaana woh

Ab apni khaahishein kya kya use rulaati haiN

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

Us ek shakl mein kya kya na sooratein dekhiN

Nigaar tha nazar aayaa nigaar khaana woh

‘Faraz’ khaab si ghaflat dikhaayi deti hai

Jo log jaan-e-jahaaN the hue fasaana woh

(Ahmad Faraz – From CHAND AUR MAIN)

Ratjage Hon K Bharpoor Neendein

 

Ratjagay hoN K bhar poor neeNdein musalsal use dekhna
Wo jo aNkhoN mein hai aur aaNkhon se ojhal use dekhna

Is kaRi dhoop mein dil tapakte hain aur baam par woh nahi
Kal naye mausamoN mein jab aayeNge baadal use dekha

Wo jo khushbu bhi hai aur jugnu bhi hai aur aaNsu bhi hai
Jab hawa gunguaanyegi, naache ga jangal use dekhna

Jo hawaoN mein hai aur fezaoN mein hai aur duaoN mein hai
Koi phailaaye daaman, K lahraaye aaNchal use dekhna

Shairi mein bhi us jaan-e-jaaN ka saraapa samaata nahi
Aur aaNkhoN ki dereena khaahish!! mukammal use dekhna

Yeh bhi kya sochnaa hai K har waqt naadaaN use sochna
Yeh bhi kya dekhna hai K har samt paagal use dekhna

Shaam-e-wada sahi, dukh zeyada sahi, phir bhi dekho ‘Faraz’
Aaj shab uski furqat mein kah lo ghazal, kal use dekhna

(Ahmad Faraz)

Itne Bhi To Woh Khafaa Nahi The

Itne bhi to woh khafaa nahi the

Jaise kabhi aashnaa nahi the

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

The yuN to hum uski anjuman meiN

Koi hameiN dekhtaa, nahi the

Jab usko tha maan khud pe kya kya!

Tab hum bhi ‘Faraz’ kya nahi the

(Ahmad Faraz)

Phir Usi Raah Guzar Par Shayad

 

Phir Usi Raah Guzar Par Shayad

Hum Kabhi Mil SakeiN Magar, 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

Jo Bhi BichhRe Wo Kab Mile haiN ‘FARAZ’

Phir Bhi Tu Intezaar kar Shayad..!!!

(Ahmad Faraz)
