awwal-e-shab wo bazm ki raunaq shama bhi thi parwana bhi

awwal-e-shab wo bazm ki raunaq shama bhi thi parwana bhi
raat ke aakhir hote hote khatm tha ye afsana bhi
qaid ko tod ke nikla jab main uth ke bagule sath hue
dasht-e-adam tak jangal jangal bhag chala virana bhi
hath se kis ne saghar patka mausam ki be-kaifi par
itna barsa tut ke baadal dub chala mai-khana bhi
ek lagi ke do hain asar aur donon hasb-e-maraatib hain
lau jo lagae shama khadi hai raqs mein hai parwana bhi
donon jaulan-gah-e-junun hain basti kya virana hai
uth ke chala jab koi bagula daud pada virana bhi
ghunche chup hain gul hain hawa par kis se kahiye ji ka haal
khak-nashin ek sabza hai so apna bhi begana bhi
husn o ishq ki lag mein aksar chhed udhar se hoti hai
shama ka shoala jab lahraya ud ke chala parwana bhi
khun hi ki shirkat wo na kyun ho shirkat chiz hai jhagde ki
apnon se wo dekh raha hun jo na kare begana bhi
daur-e-masarrat 'arzu' apna kaisa zalzala-agin tha
hath se munh tak aate aate chhut pada paimana bhi

asar usko zara nahin hota

asar us ko zara nahin hota
ranj rahat-faza nahin hota
she remains unmoved and hard to please
my pain persists, does not provide release
bewafa kahne ki shikayat hai
to bhi wada-wafa nahin hota
she objects being labelled faithless still
not a single vow does she fulfil
zikr-e-aghyar se hua malum
harf-e-naseh bura nahin hota
mention of my rivals made me know
the preacher's word isn't harsh somehow
kis ko hai zauq-e-talkh-kaami lek
jang bin kuchh maza nahin hota
.....................................................................
.....................................................................
tum hamare kisi tarah na hue
warna duniya mein kya nahin hota
your love by any means i could not gain
or else in life what would not one attain
us ne kya jaane kya kiya le kar
dil kisi kaam ka nahin hota
i wonder why she took my heart away
it is of no avail i've heard them say
imtihan kijiye mera jab tak
shauq zor-azma nahin hota
.....................................................................
.....................................................................
ek dushman ki charkh hai na rahe
tujh se ye ai dua nahin hota
that heavens be my enemy no more
this task, prayers, you cannot ensure
aah tul-e-amal hai roz-fuzun
garche ek muddaa nahin hota
my efforts daily multiply and yet
the only thing i want i do not get
tum mere pas hote ho goya
jab koi dusra nahin hota
in such a manner are you close to me
when no one else at all there ever be
haal-e-dil yar ko likhun kyunkar
hath dil se juda nahin hota
to her, how do i write my state of heart
from my heart my hand just cannot part
rahm bar-khasm-e-jaan-e-ghair na ho
sab ka dil ek sa nahin hota
......................................................................
.......................................................................
daman us ka jo hai daraaz to ho
dast-e-ashiq rasa nahin hota
she may be generous, still it is in vain
a lover's hand does not ever attain
chaara-e-dil siwae sabr nahin
so tumhaare siwa nahin hota
no cure, save patience, can there ever be
and that, without you, will not come to me
kyun sune arz-e-muztar ai 'momin'
sanam aakhir khuda nahin hota
momin distressed pleas, why will she heed
a paramour she is, not god indeed

apni ana ki aaj bhi taskin humne ki

apni ana ki aaj bhi taskin hum ne ki
ji bhar ke us ke husn ki tauhin hum ne ki
lahje ki tez dhaar se zakhmi kiya use
paiwast dil mein lafz ki sangin hum ne ki
lae ba-ru-e-kar na husn o jamal ko
mauqa tha phir bhi raat na rangin hum ne ki
ji bhar ke dil ki maut pe rone diya use
pursa diya na sabr ki talqin hum ne ki
dariya ki sair karne akele chale gae
sham-e-shafaq ki aap hi tahsin hum ne ki

aagah apni maut se koi bashar nahin

aagah apni maut se koi bashar nahin
saman sau baras ka hai pal ki khabar nahin
aa jaen rob-e-ghair mein hum wo bashar nahin
kuchh aap ki tarah hamein logon ka dar nahin
ek to shab-e-firaq ke sadme hain jaan-gudaz
andher is pe ye hai ki hoti sahar nahin
kya kahiye is tarah ke talawwun-mizaj ko
wade ka hai ye haal idhar han udhar nahin
rakhte qadam jo wadi-e-ulfat mein be-dhadak
'hairat' siwa tumhaare kisi ka jigar nahin

aa hi gaya wo mujhko lahad mein utarne

aa hi gaya wo mujh ko lahad mein utarne
ghaflat zara na ki mere ghaflat-shiar ne
o be-nasib din ke tasawwur se khush na ho
chola badal liya hai shab-e-intizar ne
ab tak asir-e-dam-e-fareb-e-hayat hun
mujh ko bhula diya mere parwardigar ne
nauhagaron ko bhi hai gala baithne ki fikr
jata hun aap apni ajal ko pukarne
dekha na karobar-e-mohabbat kabhi 'hafiz'
fursat ka waqt hi na diya karobar ne
