zamane ko zamane ki paDi hai

zamane ko zamane ki padi hai
hamein wada nibhane ki padi hai
ye duniya chand par pahunchi hui hai
tujhe lahore jaane ki padi hai
zara dekho idhar main jal raha hun
tumhein aansu chhupane ki padi hai
fasana hi haqiqat ban gaya hai
haqiqat ko fasane ki padi hai
abhi jo sher likkha bhi nahin hai
abhi se wo sunane ki padi hai
tere mehman wapas ja rahe hain
tujhe mehman-khane ki padi hai
wo tere dil mein aa baitha hai 'momin'
tujhe diwar dhane ki padi hai

yaqin kaun karega guman pe aaya hun

yaqin kaun karega guman pe aaya hun
main apne aap se chhup kar yahan pe aaya hun
mujhe bhi aql pareshan karti rahti hai
nahin nahin se guzar kar main han pe aaya hun
mujhe wo dekh ke hairan kyun nahin hoga
zamin odh ke main aasman pe aaya hun
ye baat tu hi bata kis tarah bataun tujhe
main dil ke raste teri zaban pe aaya hun
na jaane kab se nahin mil saka hun main khud se
main khud se milne tere aastan pe aaya hun
ye iztirab haqiqat mein iztirab nahin
khushi khushi main is aah-o-fughan pe aaya hun
mujhe talash na kar tu yahan wahan 'momin'
nazar utha ki tere khwab-dan pe aaya hun

waqt sakin hai main guzar raha hun

waqt sakin hai main guzar raha hun
main to is aagahi se mar raha hun
bol kar jo mujhe daba raha hai
us ki aawaz se ubhar raha hun
aaina mujh ko dekh kar chup hai
jaane main kis se baat kar raha hun
main ye samjha tha wo thahar raha hai
we ye samjha tha main thahar raha hun
ek parinda banaya kaghaz par
aur ab us ke par katar raha hun
us ne wada nahin liya mujh se
aur kahta hai main mukar raha hun
teri taswir na-mukammal hai
main abhi is mein rang bhar raha hun
jo tujhe jaanta nahin 'momin'
wo samajhta hai tujh se dar raha hun

tu agar mera tazkira karega

tu agar mera tazkira karega
jhut bolega aur kya karega
khud ko tu jaanta nahin shayad
tu samajhta hai sab khuda karega
zakhm kha kar bhi jo duaen de
kaun us ka muqabla karega
kya use yaad bhi na aaunga
kya mujhe yaad wo kiya karega
phir kahan mil sakega wo mujh se
jo mujhe aap se juda karega
apni jhuti ana ki khatir to
jaane kis kis se rabta karega
dil hi aisa hai ba-wafa 'momin'
bewafa se bhi jo wafa karega

sab mujhe aarzi sa lagta hai

sab mujhe aarzi sa lagta hai
tu magar zindagi sa lagta hai
aaina hai magar na jaane kyun
aadmi aadmi sa lagta hai
khud ko kitna bhula diya main ne
tu bhi ab ajnabi sa lagta hai
ishq mein zindagi basar karna
aql ko khud-kushi sa lagta hai
jo tere hijr mein mila 'momin'
bas wahi gham khushi sa lagta hai

rasta ye bata raha hai mujhe

rasta ye bata raha hai mujhe
we bahut dhundhta raha hai mujhe
pas rah kar na pas aaya to
dur se kya bula raha hai mujhe
jhank kar dekh apni aankhon mein
chhup ke tu dekhta raha hai mujhe
bhul baitha hun us ki sab baaten
we magar yaad aa raha hai mujhe
kya bataun chhupa hai mujh mein kaun
kaun mujh mein chhupa raha hai mujhe
main ne chaha sunaun kuchh dil ko
dil bhi apni suna raha hai mujhe
main jahan bhi gaya tujhe paya
tu bhi kya yun hi pa raha hai mujhe
kuchh nazar mein nahin raha 'momin'
hijr kya kya dikha raha hai mujhe
