mohabbaton ka chaman paemal humne kiya

mohabbaton ka chaman paemal hum ne kiya
khud apne aap ka jina muhaal hum ne kiya
jo lazzaten hain dukhon mein masarraton mein kahan
mila uruj to us ko zawal hum ne kiya
na kar-e-dil ke the laeq na kar-e-duniya ke
jo kuchh kiya to gham-e-mah-o-sal hum ne kiya
hazar dard ke mausam guzar gae lekin
kabhi daraaz na dast-e-sawal hum ne kiya
ye ramz-e-ishq ye nazuk kinae hum ne sikhae
nigah-e-naz tujhe be-misal hum ne kiya
diye tarash liye yas ke andheron se
gham-e-firaq ko khwab-e-visal hum ne kiya
sukhan se rang gaya zindagi se khwab gae
ye zakhm hijr ka kyun indimal hum ne kiya
hui hai aaj tabiat sukhan pe phir mail
so mauj-e-dard ko dil mein bahaal hum ne kiya

mizha pe ashk-e-alam jhilmilae aaKHir-e-shab

mizha pe ashk-e-alam jhilmilae aakhir-e-shab
bichhadne wale bahut yaad aae aakhir-e-shab
wo jin ke qurb se dhaaras thi mere dil ko bahut
koi kahin se unhen dhund lae aakhir-e-shab
ye shor-e-baad-e-zamistan ye rasta sunsan
dara rahe hai darakhton ke sae aakhir-e-shab
hawa mein dard ki shiddat se zamzama-paira
sunega kaun ye meri sada-e-akhir-e-shab
rawana hone ko hai karwan sitaron ka
phir us ke baad kahan naqsh-e-pa-e-akhir-e-shab
kidhar chali hai nigar-e-falak kise malum
ye tasht-e-mah-o-sitara uthae aakhir-e-shab
wo teri yaad ke mehman ho gae rukhsat
ujad gai mere dil ki sarae aakhir-e-shab
phir us ke baad wahi dhup hai mashaqqat ki
zara si der ko hai khwabnae aakhir-e-shab
nasib ho saf-e-aindagan ko taza sahar
mere labon pe yahi hai dua-e-akhir-e-shab
wo so gae hain jinhen jagne ki aadat thi
kise pukar rahi hai hawa-e-akhir-e-shab
'farasat' ab hui mahfil tamam ghar ko chalo
sarak rahi hai falak par rida-e-akhir-e-shab

malbus-e-ghubar yaad rakhna

malbus-e-ghubar yaad rakhna
ye rahguzar yaad rakhna
ek sham-e-khizan yahin kahin hai
ai subh-e-bahaar yaad rakhna
hum kashti-e-ishq ke musafir
utre nahin par yaad rakhna
ai zakhma-waran-e-barbat-e-dil
tute hue tar yaad rakhna
patjhad ki hawaen chikhti hain
kya saut-e-hazar yaad rakhna
hum jate hain bar-e-gham uthae
ai shahr-e-nigar yaad rakhna
ibrat ka maqam hai ye duniya
viran dayar yaad rakhna
ai wadi-e-gul ko jaane wale
raston ke ye khar yaad rakhna
milti hai ghamon se bhi basirat
zakhmon ka shumar yaad rakhna
bachpan ke makan ka nakhl-e-hamraaz
ye haar singhaar yaad rakhna
ye harf hai raushni-e-farda
harf sar-e-dar yaad rakhna
shayad main ye khwab bhul jaun
tum ai mere yar yaad rakhna

koi rahzan na musafir na shajar ki surat

koi rahzan na musafir na shajar ki surat
dekh is ujdi hui rahguzar ki surat
jaane kab khana-badoshi ke ye din guzrenge
muddaten ho gain dekhe hue ghar ki surat
pahle dukh tha ki sar-e-rahguzar baithe hain
ab koi ranj nahin ranj-e-safar ki surat
apne hi aks se fursat nahin milti warna
aaine mein hai kahin aaina-gar ki surat
itne payab nahin hai ki har ek ko mil jaen
hum to rahte hain samundar mein guhar ki surat
aaj aankhon mein nami hai to ghanimat jaano
qaht-e-girya mein kahan dida-e-tar ki surat
beach raste mein hamein chhod ke jaane wale
sath hon lenge tere gard-e-safar ki surat
chashm-e-ibrat se 'farasat' mein use dekhta hun
kal ye virana tha aabaad nagar ki surat

kisi ko kab wo apne dil ka kuchh ahwal deta hai

kisi ko kab wo apne dil ka kuchh ahwal deta hai
main us se baat karta hun wo mujh ko tal deta hai
koi to hai jo is hairat-sara-e-nur-o-zulmat mein
sitare ko ziya aaine ko timsal deta hai
bahut inkar karta hai sawal-e-wasl par lekin
khafa ho jaun to gardan mein banhen dal deta hai
koi chehron ka saudagar chhupa hai is kharabe mein
purani suraten le kar nai ashkal deta hai
main jis lamhe guzarte waqt ko mahsus karta hun
wo ek lamha 'farasat' ranj-e-mah-o-sal deta hai

khel tha apni ana ka ishq use samjha kiya

By

khel tha apni ana ka ishq use samjha kiya
main ne apne aap se kitna bada dhoka kiya
umr-bhar ka ham-nafas ek pal mein rukhsat ho gaya
aur main khamosh use jate hue dekha kiya
ek zara si baat par rutha raha wo der tak
muskura ke khud hi phir meri taraf chehra kiya
fikr ki lazzat ke bais hain meri nakaamiyan
sab amal karte rahe aur main faqat socha kiya
zakhm ki ek aag thi jis se sukhan raushan rakha
dard ki ek lahar thi main ne jise naghma kiya
sab hi kuchh us se na kahna tha jo tere dil mein tha
shiddat-e-izhaar mein tu ne 'farasat' kya kiya
