ai subh-e-watan

ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
ai ruh-e-bahaar ai jaan-e-chaman
ai mutrib ya ai saqi-e-man
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
le josh-e-junun ki zarbon ne zanjir-e-ghulami tod hi di
jamhur ke sangin panje ne shahi ki kalai mod hi di
tarikh ke khunin hathon se chhina hai tera simin daman
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
phir laut ke aaya sadiyon mein iqbaal-o-tarab ka sayyara
kirnon mein ufuq par phir chamka pasti ke andheron ka mara
hairan hairan nazan nazan khandan khandan raushan raushan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
dharti ke tabassum se chamke afaq-e-abad ke sayyare
zulmat ke tarannum se phute nur-e-abadiyat ke dhaare
zarron ko taghayyur ne bakhsha ek moajiza-e-khurshid-shikan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
soe hue zarre jag uthe anwar-e-sahar bedar hue
ehsas-e-zamin bedar hua afkar-e-bashar bedar hue
bistar se khazaf reze utthe aur lal-o-gohar bedar hue
aankhon ko mila gulzaron ne shakhon par samar bedar hue
nainon se masti barsati lo jag uthi hasti ki dulhan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
banjar dharti ki nas nas mein paudon ka takhayyul lahraya
ujde kheton par saya hai gehun ke sunahri khoshon ka
har barg-e-fasurda ne khincha doshiza bahaaron ka daman
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
sunsan bayabanon mein hai ek jazba-e-gulshan-arai
viran khandaron mein leta hai mahlon ka tasawwur angdai
sipi ki ru-pahli jholi mein hain aaj hazaron durr-e-adan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
zarraat mein karwat lene lage so lala-rukhsan-o-mah-e-jabin
sangin chatanon mein jage asnam ke khadd-o-khal-e-hasin
hai dair ki kaba kya jaane hai kaun sa aalam zer-e-zamin
masjud nahin hai koi bhi sajde mein magar jhukti hai jabin
naqqash hai teri parchhain aazar hai tere suraj ki kiran
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
aahan ki salabat mein ubhra masum tasawwur narmi ka
phulon ki latafat mein umda aahan ban jaane ka jazba
qarnon ki khamoshi ko hasrat hai sail-e-bayan ban jaane ka
sadiyon ki udasi ko zid hai ek nutq-e-jawan ban jaane ka
har sans ke andar ghaltan hai taghir ke sine ki dhadkan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
parbat parbat sagar sagar parcham apna lahraata hai
mahlon pe milon pe qilon par azmat ke tarane gata hai
gul-bar rida-e-azadi sarshaar jawani ka parcham
ye amn ke naghmon ka mutrib khamosh baghawat ka ye alam
tahzib ka ye zarrin aanchal tamir ka ye rangin daman
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
qandil-e-sahar nur-e-manzil khurshid-e-sahar sham-e-sahil
ye khun-e-shahidan ka makhzan ye dard-e-rafiqan ka hasil
ye amn ka lahraata gesu ye sidq-o-mohabbat ka darpan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
ab kheton mein gandum hi nahin sona bhi ugega ai saqi
bakhshega taghayyur bhukon ko ek rose mizaj-e-zarraati
ab hire moti uglenge ye bagh-o-sahara koh-o-daman
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
ganw ko sunaenge muzhda ehsar-e-hasin ban jaane ka
zarron ko sandesa denge tadap kar mahr-jabin bin jaane ka
aur tere ufuq ki lali se hote hain sitare bhi raushan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
ab khak qadam majburon ki barsaegi duniya par sona
ab atlas ki qismat hogi pairahan-e-mehnat-kash hona
padte hi nigah-e-saiqa-e-zan jal utthega har nazm-e-kuhan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan
kheton ki zamin unchi ho kar firdaus se rishta jodegi
ab hal ki ani sarmasti mein aakash ke tare todegi
wo din bhi ab kuchh dur nahin jab sayyare honge aangan
ai subh-e-watan ai subh-e-watan

is se baDa dukh kya hoga

is se pahle
jitni iden guzri hain
har id se pahle
mere bachche
apni narm rupahli banhen
meri gardan mein jab dal ke kahte the
hum eidi lene aae hain
wo khushiyon se labrez munawwar ghadiyan
kitni achchhi lagti thin jab
badi badi raqmon ko wo thukraate the
aur bade bade tohfon par bhi wo
apne munh latkate the
wo mujh se ruth ke
apni ammi ke pahlu mein jate the
wo un ki chamkili chahat
wo un ke ruth ke jaane ki
be-dard si hasrat
jab bhi karwat leti hai
dil khun ke aansu rota hai
aur ab ke hisar zindan mein
yun id hamari guzri hai
wo jhagda karne wale
ruth ke jaane wale bachche
mujh ko jail mein eidi dene aae hain

wo aur main

hayat
ek hairat se phaili hui aankh hai
jis ki palkon ko baham mile
muddaten ho chuki hain
qarnon se yunhi
musalsal khalaon mein takti chali ja rahi hai
manazir nigalti chali ja rahi hai
kahin dur hairat se phaili hui aankh ke par
chehra hai
be-khal be-chashm be-ant chehra
chehre ke masum marmar se rukhsar par
jagmagata hua ashk main hun
hairat se phaili hui aankh ke chaak ko
main rafu kar raha hun

chaqu ka dasta

By

main abhi chhota tha
kisi ne mere hath mein chaqu thama diya
main ne apni umr ki lakir ko
chhe jagah se kat dala
aur mohabbat ki lakir
chaqu ki nok se khurach di
chaqu ka dasta mujhe kuchh be-hangam sa mahsus hua
use main ne
hathaude ki zarb se
chaqu se alahida kar diya
zara si dhaar lagane ke baad
ab use donon taraf se istimal kiya ja sakta tha
mujhe yaad nahin
main ne use kitni jagah istimal kiya hoga
albatta us se meri hatheliyon par
kai be si lakiren pad gain
aur ek hath ki tamam ungliyan
talaf ho gain
hatheli ki be-zarurat lakiron ne
meri baad ki zindagi mein
kai mushkilat paida kin
sab se badi mushkil
to khud ye chaqu tha
jo apni do tarfa dhaar se
mujhe zakhmi kar raha tha
ek mushkil aur hai
aisa hi ek chaqu
ek din aaine mein mere aks ko
do masawi tukdon mein taqsim kar gaya
aur main thik se ye bhi na dekh saka
ki us ka dasta kis ke hath mein tha

qaidi alfaz

By

dekh ai mere ham-zad
dekh apne bhitar mein
tere ek zindan mein
kitne hi ye qaidi hain
be-shumar lafzon ke
zat mein jo gunge the
aah bhari kuchh baaton ke
zulm ki tapti chhaya mein
labon pe aate nalon ke
jo kirchi kirchi tut gae
wo shishe sab armanon ke
wo jism pe tere bojh nahin
ye chhaale teri ruh pe hain
main darta hun
main darta hun
jo chhaale yak dam phut gae
aazad hue jo honton se
dariya ka rukh ye mod na den
aur ek nai tahrir se ye
unwan kahani badal na den

sham-e-hangam to hum hai
tasawwur ke khatolon pe saji
apne ajdad ke ayyam ki
taswiren damak uthi hain
aise lagta hai ki
zarron se nikalte the qamar
zindagi raqs-kunan
nazan-o-shadab hua karti thi
naddiyan dudh ki bahti thin
moattar thi hawa
mahfil-e-hast mein
har su the rasile panghat
sabz pedon pe khila karte the naghmon ke gulab
wahshat-e-atish-e-auqat ki illat to kuja
koi darmandagi ke nam se waqif bhi na tha
kitne manzar the jinhen khuld ke manzar kahiye
rup ki nagri mein sangit ke sagar kahiye
aaj chehron pe masarrat bhi sarasima hai
wahshat-e-atish-e-auqat ne
aafat ke shoale phenke
har taraf maut ke jwala-mukhi ka lawa
sans lene se pighal jate hain udte panchhi
araz-e-tahzib ke sine mein numu-yafta zahrile juzam
qaf gulfam ki aabaadi ko le dube hain
waqt ki god mein sukhe bachche
chaar-su ghumte laghar ranjhe
nae changez nae nadir-shah
aahan ho sharba ke shab-diz
kahin maktab-e-nakhshab ke
fusun-kar bagule hain ki
sarsam ke sar chashme hain
gunjte shahpar-e-aseb ke khuni panje
aadam-e-shaeq-e-fitrat ke liye
qufl abjad bhi hain
zanjiren bhi
rup ki nagri mein bahrup ke tajir aae
dur deson ke fusun-kar
zar kaghaz rahat ke liye
chaar-su kushton ke pushte bhi lage hain dekho
kis qadar khun-baha baqi hai
aankhen pathrai hain maon ki
ghulaman-e-rusum-e-amwaj
apni aqlim ki mearaj
kahan baithe hain
zarre zarre se nikalte hain andhere bichchhu
nadi nalon mein hawaon mein lahu
khuld mashriq mein lahu
jannat maghrib mein lahu
rup ki nagri mein
sangit ke sagar mein lahu
meri masjid mein lahu
aap ke mandir mein lahu
dekhna ghaur se ai chaaragaro
meri bakal mein lahu
aap ki chadar mein lahu
