Andheri Raat Ka Musafir

javani ki andheri raat hai zulmat ka tufan hai

miri rahon se nur-e-mah-o-anjum tak gurezan hai

khuda soya hua hai ahrman mahshar-ba-daman hai

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

gham o hirman ki yurish hai masaib ki ghataen hain

junun ki fitna-khezi husn ki khunin adaen hain

badi pur-zor andhi hai badi kafir balaen hain

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

faza men maut ke tarik saae thartharate hain

hava ke sard jhonke qalb par khanjar chalate hain

guzishta ishraton ke khvab aina dikhate hain

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

zamin chin-bar-jabin hai asman takhrib par maail

rafiqan-e-safar men koi bismil hai koi ghael

taaqub men lutere hain chatanen raah men haael

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

ufuq par zindagi ke lashkar-e-zulmat ka dera hai

havadis ke qayamat-khez tufanon ne ghera hai

jahan tak dekh sakta huun andhera hi andhera hai

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

charagh-e-dair fanus-e-haram qindil-e-rahbani

ye sab hain muddaton se be-niyaz-e-nur-e-irfani

na naqus-e-barhaman hai na ahang-e-huda-khvani

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

talatum-khez dariya aag ke maidan haael hain

garajti andhiyan biphre hue tufan haael hain

tabahi ke farishte jabr ke shaitan haael hain

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

faza men shoala-afshan dev-e-istibdad ka khanjar

siyasat ki sananen ahl-e-zar ke khun-chakan tevar

fareb-e-be-khudi dete hue billor ke saghar

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

badi par barish-e-lutf-o-karam neki pe taaziren

javani ke hasin khvabon ki haibatnak taabiren

nukili tez sanginen hain khun-asham shamshiren

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

hukumat ke mazahir jang ke pur-haul naqshe hain

kudalon ke muqabil top banduqen hain neze hain

salasil taziyane bediyan phansi ke takhte hain

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

ufuq par jang ka khunin sitara jagmagata hai

har ik jhonka hava ka maut ka paigham laata hai

ghata ki ghan-garaj se qalb-e-giti kaanp jaata hai

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun

fana ke ahani vahshat-asar qadmon ki aahat hai

dhuven ki badliyan hain goliyon ki sansanahat hai

ajal ke qahqahe hain zalzalon ki gadgadahat hai

magar main apni manzil ki taraf badhta hi jaata huun
