Shahr E Kitaab Ujar Gaya, Harf Barahna Sar Hue

4

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

2

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

4

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)

Sab Qareene Usi Dildaar Ke Rakh Dete Hain

4

Sab qareenay, usi dildaar ke, rakh dete haiN

Hum ghazal men bhi hunar yaar ke rakh dete haiN

Shayad ajayeN kabhi chashm e khariidar men hum

Jan O dil biich mein bazaar ke rakh dete haiN

Zikr e janaN mein yeh duniya ko kahaN le aaye

Log kyuN mas’alay bekaar ke rakh dete haiN

Zindagii teri amaanat hai magar kya kijiye

Log yeh bojh bhi thak haar ke rakh dete haiN

Hum to chahat men bhi ghalib ke muqallid hain ‘Faraz’
Jis pe marte haiN use maar ke rakh dete haiN

(Ahmad Faraz)

Wahshatein Barhti Gayin Hijr Ke Aazaar Ke Sath …

Wahshatein barhti gayiN hijr ke aazaar ke saath
Ab to hum baat bhi karte nahi Ghamkhaar ke saath

Hum ne ek umr basar ki hai Gham E yaar ke saath
‘Meer’ do din na jiye hijr ke aazaar ke saath

Ab to hum ghar se nikalte hain to hans dete haiN
Taaq par izzat E saadaat bhi dastaar ke saath

Is qadar khauf hai ab shahr ki galiyoN me K log
Chaap sunte haiN to lag jaate hain diiwaar ke saath

Aek to khaab liye phirte ho galiyoN galiyoN
Us pe takraar bhi karte ho khareedaar ke saath

Shahr ka shahr hi naaseh ho to kya kijiyega
Warna hum rind to bhiR jate hain do chaar ke saath

Hum ko us shahr mein taa’miir ka sauda hai jahaaN
Log me’maar ko chun dete haiN deewaar ke saath

Jo sharaf hum ko mila koocha E jaanaaN se ‘Faraz’
Sooye-maqtal bhi gaye haiN usi pindaar ke saath

(Ahmad Faraz)

Jab Yar Ne Rakht E Safar Bandha …

Jab yaar ne rakht E safar baandha kab zabt ka yaara us din tha

Har dard ne dil ko sehlaayaa!!  kya haal hamaara  us din tha

Jab khaab hui us ki aaNkhain jab dhund hua us ka chehraa

Har ashk sitaara us shab tha har zakhm angaara us din tha

Sab yaaroN ke hote sote -  hum kis se gale mil kar rote

Kub galiyan apni galiyan thein kab shahr hamaara us din tha

Jab tujh se zara ghafil Thehre har yaad ne dil per dastak di

Jab lab pe tumhara nam na tha her dukh ne pukaara us din tha

Ek tum hi ‘Faraz’ na thay tanha! ab ke to bulaawa jab aaya

Ek bheeR lagi thi maqtal mein her dard ka mara us din tha

Be Rukhi Tu Ne Bhi Ki, Uzr E Zmana Ker Ke …

Be-rukhi tu ne bhi ki, Uzr-E-zmana ker ke

Ham bhi mehfil se uTh aaye haiN bahana ker ke

Kitni baaten thiN na kehna thiN, so keh bheji haiN

Ab pasheman haiN qaasid ko rawana ker ke

Kya kaheN kya hai un ankhoN me k rakh deti haiN

Aik achchay bhalay insaaN ko diwana ker ke

Koi weerana E hasti ki khabr kya lata

Khud bi ham bhool gaye dafn khzana ker ke

Wo agar ankhon me rehta to ham khush the ‘Fraz’

Us ne kya zulm kiya dil me Thikana ker ke

Kaha Tha Kisne Tujhe Aabroo GaNwaye Ja …

Kaha tha kisne tujhe aabru gaNwaane jaa
‘Faraz’ aur use haal E dil sunaane jaa

Kal ek faqeer ne kis saadgi se mujhse kaha
Tere JabeeN ko bhi tarsaiNge aastaane jaa

Use bhi hamne gaNwaaya teri khushi ke liye
Tujhe bhi dekh liya hai, aray zamaane jaa

Bahut hai doulat E pindaar phir bhi dewaane
Jo tujhse rooTh chuka hai use manaane jaa

Suna hai usne So’ember kI rasm taza ki
‘Faraz’ tu bhi muqaddar ko aazmaane jaa
