ahmad-javed

An-Padh Gunge Ka Rajaz

khamoshi mera lashkar hai

lafzon ki daldal

aur us men palne vaali jonken

ye mutaaffin avazen

meri yalghar ke aage sabit-qadam rahengi?

kya tum vaqai aisa samajhte ho

ki tumhare maidan itne farakh hain

ki mere asp-e-asil ko thaka denge

tumhare samundar itne mavvaj hain

ki mera rizq ulat denge

aur tumhare pahad itne sanglakh hain

ki mera jhanDa na thamenge

dushman ahmaq ho to mera ghussa badha deta hai

saqahat meri muayyana maqtul hai

aur khush-fahmi muqarrara mazbuh

meri chinghad sur-e-israfil ka pesh-ahang hai

lafz ki minminahat se paak

andhe sayyaron ke takrao ki mafauq-e-samaat gadgadahat

avaz ki mukammal minhai ka shor

likhe hue lafz ko bhi shaq kar deta hai

ye ibaraten tumhara saf-basta lashkar hain

farzi hathiyaron se musallah ye lashkar

jise khayali qilon ke brij girane ka bada tajraba hai

is ki na-budi meri ek chup ke fasle par hai

yaad! rakhna

mere paas koi rassi nahin hoti

jo tumhare gale men Dalne aur

tumhare haath bandhne ke kaam aae

mera fitrak hamesha khali rahta hai

aur mere qaid-khane kabhi abad nahin rahe

main jang se pahle hi dushman shumar kar leta huun

phir maqtulin ki ginti nahin karta

sab jante hain

mujh par neza phenkne valon ki paspai na-tamam rahti hai

meri haibat se zamin maqnatis banti hai

aur hava kohrbai karti hai

mera shikar bijliyan hankti hain

maut mera tarkash utha kar chalti hai

aur mera rath andhiyan khinchti hain

lafzon ke maktub jangal itne ghane nahin hain

ki tumhen aag ki barish se tar-ba-tar na hone den

sarf-o-nahv ka saeban itna bada nahin hai

ki sitara-e-ajal tum se ojhal rah jaae

kitabon se itni unchi divar nahin banti

ki qital sannata phalang na sake

kya hasin duniya thi

jise tum ne lafzon se daghdar kar diya

us ke tabinda afaq

in pinjron men ghat kar saqitushshams ho gae hain

kaisi zinda zamin thi

jis men tum ne zahr bo diya

kaisa raushan asman tha

jise tum tariki ke mafhum men sarf kar chuke ho

tum ne shuur ko jhuta

aur fitrat ko gadla kar diya hai

mahz zaban ke chatkhare ke liye

tum ne vajud ka asas-ul-bait

farhangon ke mol bech khaya

main kaenat ki bazyabi ke liye nikla huun

mera khanjar lafz ka pet chaak karega

maani ki zambil phaad Dalega

aur kazzab isharon ke haath qalam kar dega

jinhon ne sayyaron ko gumrah kar rakha hai

be-zabanon ko muzhda ho

haqiqat ka asli tanazur bahal hone ko hai

tumhare dushman fasilon ke tasavvur men mahsur hain

siyah aine ki ye makhluq

jis ki manhus parchhain ne

har taraf shor macha rakkha hai

khud hi apna madfan hai

meri akhiri yalghar se ho jaenge saare manazir

saari avazen

azad

na-malfuz….
