dipawali

jab se aai hai dipawali
har taraf chhai hai raushni
har jagah chahaton ke diye
sham hote hi jalne lage
phul-jhadiyon ka bazar hai
ye patakhon ka tehwar hai
dipon ka hai suhana saman
jin se dharti bani kahkashan
jitne rocket patakhe chale
aasman par lage hain bhale
ho gain dur tarikiyan
ab hain raushan zamin aasman
jab se aai hain dipawali
har taraf chhai hai raushni
ek mauqa hai pahchan ka
dil milati hai insan ka
chahaton ki ye taswir hai
ek nae yug ki tabir hai

ahwal ek safar ka

By

ajnabi sabza-zaron mein
hadd-e-nazar tak banafsha ke phul
ajnabi to nahin the na hain
wo to rah-e-safar ke ujale bhi the
ham-safar bhi lage
dastanen sunate bhi the
aur sunte bhi the
ab ke mausam tumhein yaad karte rahe
aur main chup rahi

ammi jaan

bade hi shauq se mujh ko padhati hain likhati hain
bade hi pyar se jo puchhta hun wo batati hain
na jhunjhlati hain wo mujh par na ghussa hi dikhati hain
jo mujh ko dantti bhi hain to fauran muskuraati hain
khuda rakkhe ki mujh par mehrban hain kis qadar ammi
buri dekhi jo koi baat mujh mein pyar se toka
kabhi khela jo koi khel ganda mujh ko samjhaya
kabhi chughli kisi ki main ne khai to bura mana
durust us ko karaya lafz agar koi ghalat bola
gharaz karti hain meri tarbiyat aathon pahar ammi
sahaba ke buzurgon ke mujhe qisse sunati hain
hadisen bhi sunati un ka matlab bhi batati hain
saliqe se safai se mujhe rahna sikhati hain
mere aaram ki khatir wo taklifen uthati hain
nahin koi bhi itna mehrban hain jis qadar ammi
bada hai un ka rutba aur uncha hai maqam un ka
hamesha dil se karta hun adab aur ehtiram un ka
na main un se jhagadta hun na main leta hun nam un ka
khushi ke sath kar deta hun main har ek kaam un ka
jabhi to mujh ko kahti hain mera nur-e-nazar ammi

baghawat kaun kare

is kumba-parwar duniya mein bekas ki himayat kaun kare
jab ghasib munsif ban jaen insaf ki zahmat kaun kare
jo farq samajhte hain ab tak hindi sindhi punjabi mein
in aql ke pure logon se ladne ki himaqat kaun kare
jo lut kar aae hain un ko sabr aate aate aaega
lekin is behis duniya mein ehsas-e-haqiqat kaun kare
kya rahna aisi basti mein har baat jahan ki ulti ho
jab baz hi khet ka dushman ho phir is ki hifazat kaun kare
malum ye hota hai ab tak yusuf ke baradar zinda hain
jab apne dushman ho jaen ghairon ki shikayat kaun kare
in khate-pite logon se ye baat koi puchhe ja kar
zardaron ki dawat tum ne ki nadar ki dawat kaun kare
mahlon ke sunahri pardon mein har aib hunar ban jata hai
lekin in daulat-mandon ko jhutlane ki jurat kaun kare
hum sab kuchh kar sakte hain magar ye soch ke phir rah jate hain
tum lakh bure ho apne ho apnon se baghawat kaun kare

chand

By

chupke chupke raat ko tashrif jab lata hai chand
har taraf dharti pe kaisa nur barsata hai chand
pahle din ke chand ko sab log kahte hain hilal
chaudhwin tarikh ho to badr kahlata hai chand
pur-sukun mahaul tare kahkashan thandi hawa
raat ki mahfil mein aksar raqs farmata hai chand
jab ghata ghanghor aati hai kabhi barsat mein
odh kar sapnon ki chadar shab mein so jata hai chand
kahti hai bachche ko mera chand kahte pyar se
istiara pyar mein ek man ke ban jata hai chand
har ghadi betab hain mama ke darshan ke liye
chhote bachchon ke dilon ko khub bahlata hai chand
tum ko bhi bachpan mein ai 'abrar' kitna pyar tha
jis tarah 'danish' miyan ko aaj-kal bhata tha chand

intizar

jab mile the tum se pahli martaba
ye laga jaise ki sab kuchh pa liya
mil gai thi is jahan ki har khushi
badli badli ho gai thi zindagi
ek din phir hae aisa bhi hua
ho gae ek dusre se hum juda
milne ki bas aas baqi rah gai
ek tadapti pyas baqi rah gai
aaj bhi is dil ko mere hai yaqin
kya pata kis mod takrae kahin
is liye ummid rakh kar barqarar
karta hun har-pal tumhaara intizar
