KHudi ka raazdan ho kar KHudi ki dastan ho ja

khudi ka raazdan ho kar khudi ki dastan ho ja
jahan se kya gharaz tujh ko tu aap apna jahan ho ja
bayan-e-paemali shikwa-e-barq-e-tapan ho ja
gulistan-e-jahan ke patte patte ki zaban ho ja
sharik-e-karwan hone ki go taqat nahin tujh mein
magar itni to himmat kar ki gard-e-karwan ho ja
tazalzul se bari ho tera istiqlal ulfat mein
yaqin par yaqin ho ja guman-e-be-guman ho ja
kisi surat to sharh-e-arzu-e-shauq karni hai
zaban chup hai agar ai dil to aap apni zaban ho ja
zamane par bharosa kar na raaz-e-ishq ka ai dil
jahan tak ho sake tu aap apna raaz-dan ho ja
tujhe daghon ke lakhon mah-o-anjum mil hi jaenge
uth ai dard-e-dil par aah uth kar aasman ho ja
kabhi to aarzi sa ek tabassum lab pe aane de
kabhi to mehrban mujh par mere na-mehrban ho ja
tere aane pe ai tir-e-nigah-e-naz main khush hun
dil-e-betab mein aa kar hisab-e-dostan ho ja
bulandi nam se ai 'arsh' mil sakti nahin tujh ko
zamin-e-sher par auj-e-sukhan se aasman ho ja

kali pe rang gulon par nikhaar bhi to nahin

kali pe rang gulon par nikhaar bhi to nahin
bahaar khak umid-e-bahaar bhi to nahin
kuchh aisi aag lagi hai mere gulistan mein
yahan shajar koi be-barg-o-bar bhi to nahin
isi fareb mein rahta ki pas hai manzil
sitam to ye hai ki rah mein ghubar bhi to nahin
mujhe zamane ne bakhshi hai wo fareb ki mai
nasha to ek taraf hai khumar bhi to nahin
samajh mein aati nahin sard-mehri-e-duniya
kisi ke sine mein gham ka sharar bhi to nahin
qarar dil ke liye dhundhta magar tauba
tere baghair ye ab be-qarar bhi to nahin
nikal to jao jahan-e-kharab se ai 'arsh'
magar yahan koi ja-e-farar bhi to nahin

kabhi hum mein tum mein bhi pyar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho

kabhi hum mein tum mein bhi pyar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
na kisi ke dil mein ghubar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
ye chali hai kaisi hawa ki ab nahin khilte phul milap ke
kabhi daur-e-fasl-e-bahaar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
thin baham nashat ki mahfilen thin qadam mein lutf ki manzilen
bada zindagi pe nikhaar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
thi har ek baat mein chashni haq-o-sidq-o-lutf-o-khulus ki
rah-e-haq pe chalna shiar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
hue lad ke hum se agar juda rakhi aur mulk ki ek bana
ye tumhin ka shauq-e-farar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
hui jang-o-harab ki ibtida to batao bas yahi ek pata
koi tum mein nang-e-waqar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho

jo mera hosh ka aalam hai be-KHudi to nahin

jo mera hosh ka aalam hai be-khudi to nahin
main jis ko apna samajhta hun ajnabi to nahin
khuda-gari ka ye mahir kuchh aur hi shai hai
tum aadmi jise kahte ho aadmi to nahin
ye aur baat hai mahrum-e-iltifat hun main
tere karam ke khazane mein kuchh kami to nahin
subut milta hai us se kisi talluq ka
kamal-e-barhami-e-dost dushmani to nahin
nigah-o-dil mein bhi lazim hai ek murawwat-o-kaif
numud-e-ariz-o-gesu hi dilbari to nahin
nuzul-e-barq hai shayad ye aashiyanon par
tu raushni jise samjha hai raushni to nahin
tumhaare chehre pe aasar hain khushi ke magar
jo mere chehre se zahir hai wo khushi to nahin
piye sharab ibaadat-guzar hue ai shaikh
magar huzur ye shayan-e-bandagi to nahin
na jaane kyun mere dil ko yaqin nahin aata
jo tu ne jalwa dikhaya hai aarzi to nahin
suna hai tauba se hota hai taza-tar iman
hazar shukr ki ye aariza abhi to nahin
tabahiyon ke liye mustaid hain ahl-e-jahan
ye aagahi kahin tauhin-e-agahi to nahin
bas ek marg-e-musalsal bas ek ranj-e-dawam
kuchh aur shai hai ye ai 'arsh' zindagi to nahin

jis gham se dil ko rahat ho us gham ka mudawa kya mani

jis gham se dil ko rahat ho us gham ka mudawa kya mani
jab fitrat tufani thahri sahil ki tamanna kya mani
ishrat mein ranj ki aamezish rahat mein alam ki aalaish
jab duniya aisi duniya hai phir duniya duniya kya mani
khud shaikh-o-barahman mujrim hain ek kaam se donon pi na sake
saqi ki bukhl-pasandi par saqi ka shikwa kya mani
jalwon ka to ye dastur nahin pardon se kabhi bahar aaen
ai dida-e-be-taufiq tera ye zauq-e-tamasha kya mani
ikhlas-o-wafa ke sajdon ki jis dar par dad nahin milti
ai ghairat-e-dil ai azm-e-khudi us dar par sajda kya mani
ai sahib-e-naqd-o-nazar mana insan ka nizam nahin achchha
is ki islah ke parde mein allah se jhagda kya mani
har-lahza fuzun ho josh-e-amal ye farz hai farz ki rah pe chal
tadbir ka ye rona kaisa taqdir ka shikwa kya mani
maikhane mein tu ai waiz ab talqin ke kuchh uslub badal
allah ka banda banne ko jannat ka sahaara kya mani
izhaar-e-wafa lazim hi sahi ai 'arsh' magar fariyaaden kyun
wo baat jo sab par zahir hai us baat ka charcha kya mani

hawa chaman ki bhala hum ko sazgar kahan

By

hawa chaman ki bhala hum ko sazgar kahan
bahaar nam ko hai asal mein bahaar kahan
jo tum nahin the to ek lutf-e-intizar to tha
tum aa gae ho to ab lutf-e-intizar kahan
chaman se dur bhi dekhi hai fasl-e-gul hum ne
magar wo silsila-e-naghma-e-bahaar kahan
numud-e-subh hui aur ujad gai mahfil
mai-e-shabana kahan ab wo mai-gusar kahan
chaman ye shahr-e-nigaran bana to hai lekin
meri bahaar ko chhod aai hai bahaar kahan
hui hain un se uchatti si kuchh mulaqaten
magar ye kaif ba-andaza-e-khumar kahan
na sina chaak hai koi na ab gareban chaak
gaya na jaane wo sarmaya-e-bahaar kahan
ba-faiz-e-azmat-e-syan mili hai ye tauqir
wagarna dar-khur-e-rahmat gunahgar kahan
na wo sohbat-e-mazi na us ki yaad ai 'arsh'
jo karwan hi nahin hai to phir ghubar kahan
