sada-e-jawedan

wahime ki siskiyan chaaron taraf
aur un mein ek sada sab se alag
jaise sahra mein gulab
tirgi mein jaise ubhre mahtab
maut ki parchhaiyon mein jaise raushan zindagani ki lakir
munkiron ke darmiyan jaise masih
jaise bipta mein ghire insan ko
apne murshid ka mile aashirwad
kaurwon ke dal ka nargha aur is mein jaise krishn
bansuri ki mohne wali sada
halki halki dhimi dhimi kaif-za
ye sada hai azm-e-insan ka payam
azm-e-insan ki sada aafaqiyat
azm-e-insan ki sada la-faniyat
azm-e-insan ki sada jamhuriyat
ye sada hai ek nawa-e-dil-sitan
ye sada aflak mein parcham-fashan
ye sada mahaul mein har-dam rawan
ye sada har dil ki dhadkan se ayan
ye sada hai ruh jo hai jawedan
jism marta hai sada marti nahin

ye chaman-zar ye khush-rang bahaaron ka jahan

ye chaman-zar ye khush-rang bahaaron ka jahan
zindagi kitni dil-awez-o-dil-ara hai yahan
champai dhup mein har zarra hai suraj ki kiran
chandni raat mein har phul hai raushan raushan
nur hi nur zamin se hai falak tak raqsan
zindagi kitni dil-awez-o-dil-ara hai yahan
wadi-e-gang-o-jaman jannat-e-nazara hai
sar-zamin apni zar-o-sim ka gahwara hai
apne dariyaon ki har mauj mein bijli hai rawan
zindagi kitni dil-awez-o-dil-ara hai yahan
walwale dil mein to aankhon mein umangen raushan
hain sabhi chehre yahan husn-e-amal ke darpan
azmat mehnat-o-isar jabinon se ayan
zindagi kitni dil-awez-o-dil-ara hai yahan
aashti amn mohabbat ke parastar sabhi
jazba-e-mehr-o-mohabbat se hain sarshaar sabhi
sajhe tyauhaar hain holi ho ki id-e-qurban
zindagi kitni dil-awez-o-dil-ara hai yahan
tarjuman-e-dil-e-jamhur adib-o-fankar
in ke afkar tawana hain takhayyul bedar
nikhra nikhra nai saj-dhaj ka hai andaz-e-bayan
zindagi kitni dil-awez-o-dil-ara hai yahan

ek faqir

ek faqir
ek insan paikar-e-ikhlas ruh-e-rasti
ek faqir-e-be-nawa isar jis ki zindagi
jis ke har qaul-o-amal mein amn ka paigham tha
jis ka har iqdam goya aafiyat-anjam tha
jis ki duniya bandagi bhagti surur-e-jawedan
jis ki duniya kaif-o-sarmasti ki hasil be-guman
aashti thi jis ki fitrat jis ka mazhab pyar tha
khidmat-e-insaniyat ka jo alam-bardar tha
azm ne jis ke har ek mushkil ko aasan kar diya
jazba-e-ehsas-e-khuddari bashar mein bhar diya
naz uthae hind ke wo hind ka gham-khwar tha
karwan-e-hurriyat ka rahbar-o-salar tha
ye bhi hai mojiz-bayani us ki har tahrir ki
naqsh-e-farsuda se paida ek nai taswir ki
khak se shoale uthe aur aasman par chha gae
mah-o-anjum ban gae kaun-o-makan par chha gae
tirgi bhagi jahaalat ki faza chhutne lagi
haule haule tira-o-tarik shab katne lagi
har taraf kaif-o-masarrat har taraf nur-o-surur
ghunche ghunche par tabassum chashm-e-nargis par ghurur
ye fusun-kari hui jis ke sabab wo kaun tha
ye junun-kari hui jis ke sabab wo kaun tha
nam tha gandhi magar us ke hazaron nam hain
ek mai-khana hai jis mein har tarah ke jam hain

mere marne ki bhi un ko na KHabar di jae

mere marne ki bhi un ko na khabar di jae
kis liye apnon ko taklif-e-safar di jae
lakh ko le ke chalen ghair badi shan ke sath
ghar se le ja ke ye chaurahe pe dhar di jae
umr bhar tu ne ata ki hai mai-e-hosh-ruba
waqt-e-akhir hai mai-e-hosh-asar di jae
sim-o-zar se na sahi sabr-o-qanaat se sahi
mujh se khuddar ki jholi bhi to bhar di jae
gham se gham ho na khushi se ho khushi ka ehsas
aisi tadbir bhi ai dil koi kar di jae
tab kahin ja ke mile manzil-e-irfan ka nishan
jab nigahon ko zaban dil ko nazar di jae
dil ki hai kushta-e-bedad-e-falak ai 'sahir'
is ko tabani-e-khurshid-o-qamar di jae
