wahi jo haya thi nigar aate aate

wahi jo haya thi nigar aate aate
bata tu hi ab hai wo pyar aate aate
na maqtal mein chal sakti thi tegh-e-qatil
bhare itne ummid-war aate aate
ghati meri roz aane jaane se izzat
yahan aap khoya wiqar aate aate
jagah do to main is mein turbat bana lun
bhara hai jo dil mein ghubar aate aate
abhi ho ye fitna to kya kuchh na hoge
jawani ke lail-o-nahaar aate aate
ghadi hijr ki kash ya rab na aati
qayamat ke lail-o-nahaar aate aate
khabar deti hai yaad karta hai koi
jo bandha hai hichki ne tar aate aate
phir aae jo tum mehrban jate jate
phiri gardish-e-rozgar aate aate
azal se abad ko to jaana tha 'afsar'
chale aae hum us dayar aate aate

falak un se jo baDh kar bad-chalan hota to kya hota

falak un se jo badh kar bad-chalan hota to kya hota
jawan se pesh-rau pir-e-kuhan hota to kya hota
musallam dekh kar yaqub murde se hue bad-tar
jo yusuf ka darida pairahan hota to kya hota
hamara koh-e-gham kya sang-e-khara hai jo kat jata
agar mar mar ke zinda kohkan hota to kya hota
ata ki chadar-e-gard us ne apne marne walon ko
hui khilqat ki ye surat kafan hota to kya hota
nigah-ban jal gae chaar aankhen hote dekh kar us se
kalim aasa kahin wo ham-sukhan hota to kya hota
bada bad-ahd hai is shohrat-e-ifa-e-wada par
agar mashhur tu paiman-shikan hota to kya hota
muqaddar mein to likkhi hai gadai ku-e-jaanan ki
agar 'afsar' shahanshah-e-zaman hota to kya hota

tumhaare hijr mein kyun zindagi na mushkil ho

tumhaare hijr mein kyun zindagi na mushkil ho
tumhin jigar ho tumhin jaan ho tumhin dil ho
ajab nahin ki agar aaina muqabil ho
tumhaari tegh-e-ada khud tumhaari qatil ho
na ikhtilaf-e-mazahib ke phir paden jhagde
hijab apni khudi ka agar na hail ho
tumhaari tegh-e-ada ka fasana sunta hun
mujhe to qatl karo dekhun to kaise qatil ho
hamari aankh ke parde mein tum chhupo dekho
tumhaari aisi ho laila to aisa mahmil ho
ye arz roz-e-jaza hum karenge dawar se
ki khun-baha main hamare hawale qatil ho
isi nazar se hai nur-e-nigah madd-e-nazar
mujhe habib ka didar ta-ki hasil ho
habib kyun na ho surat bhi achchhi sirat bhi
har ek amr mein tum rashk-e-mah-e-kaamil ho
ghazab ye hai ki adu ka jhut sach thahre
hum un se haq bhi kahen to guman-e-baatil ho
maza chakhaun tumhein is hansi ka rone par
khuda kare kahin tum dil se mujh pe mail ho
tumhaare lab to hain jaan-e-masih o aab-e-baqa
ye kya zamane mein mashhur hai ki qatil ho
tumhaari did se sairab ho nahin sakta
ki shakl-e-aina munh dekhne ke qabil ho
isi rafiq se ghaflat hai aah ai 'afsar'
tumhaare kaam se jo ek dam na ghafil ho
