Khizr-E-Rah

shair

sahil-e-dariya pe main ik raat tha mahv-e-nazar

gosha-e-dil men chhupae ik jahan-e-iztrab

shab sukut-afza hava asuda dariya narm sair

thi nazar hairan ki ye dariya hai ya tasvir-e-ab

jaise gahvare men so jaata hai tifl-e-shir-ḳhvar

mauj-e-muztar thi kahin gahraiyon men mast-e-ḳhvab

raat ke afsun se taair ashiyanon men asiir

anjum-e-kam-zau giraftar-e-tilism-e-mahtab

dekhta kya huun ki vo paik-e-jahan-paima ḳhizr

jis ki piiri men hai manind-e-sahar rang-e-shabab

kah raha hai mujh se ai juya-e-asrar-e-azal

chashm-e-dil va ho to hai taqdir-e-alam be-hijab

dil men ye sun kar bapa hangama-e-mahshar hua

main shahid-e-justuju tha yuun suḳhan-gustar hua

ai tiri chashm-e-jahan-bin par vo tufan ashkar

jin ke hangame abhi dariya men sote hain ḳhamosh

kashti-e-miskin-o-jan-e-pak-o-divar-e-yatim

ilm-e-musa bhi hai tire samne hairat-farosh

chhod kar abadiyan rahta hai tu sahra-navard

zindagi teri hai be-roz-o-shab-o-farda-o-dosh

zindagi ka raaz kya hai saltanat kya chiiz hai

aur ye sarmaya-o-mehnat men hai kaisa ḳharosh

ho raha hai asia ka ḳhirqa-e-derina chaak

naujavan aqvam-e-nau-daulat ke hain pairaya-posh

garche askandar raha mahrum-e-ab-e-zindagi

fitrat-e-askandari ab tak hai garm nao-nosh

bechta hai hashmi namus din-e-mustafa

ḳhak-o-ḳhun men mil raha hai turkaman-e-shaḳht-kosh

aag hai aulad-e-ibrahim hai namrud hai

kya kisi ko phir kisi ka imtihan maqsud hai

javab-e-ḳhizr

sahra-navardi

kyuun taajjub hai miri sahra-navardi par tujhe

ye taga-pu-e-damadam zindagi ki hai dalil

ai rahin-e-ḳhana tu ne vo saman dekha nahin

gunjti hai jab faza-e-dasht men bang-e-rahil

ret ke tiile pe vo aahu ka be-parva ḳhiram

vo hazar be-barg-o-saman vo safar be-sang-o-mil

vo numud-e-aḳhtar-e-simab-pa hangam-e-sub.h

ya numayan bam-e-gardun se jabin-e-jibrail

vo sukut-e-sham-e-sahra men ghurub-e-aftab

jas se raushan-tar hui chashm-e-jahan-bin-e-ḳhalil

aur vo paani ke chashme par maqam-e-karvan

ahl-e-iman jas tarah jannat men gird-e-salsabil

taaza virane ki sauda-e-mohabbat ko talash

aur abadi men tu zanjiri-e-kisht-o-naḳhil

puḳhta-tar hai gardish-e-paiham se jam-e-zindagi

hai yahi ai be-ḳhabar raz-e-davam-e-zindagi

zindagi bartar az sud-o-ziyan hai zindagi

zindagi bartar az andesha-e-sud-o-ziyan hai zindagi

hai kabhi jaan aur kabhi taslim-e-jan hai zindagi

tu ise paimana-e-imroz-o-farda se na naap

javedan paiham davan har-dam javan hai zindagi

apni duniya aap paida kar agar zindon men hai

sirr-e-adam hai zamir-e-kun-fakan hai zindagi

zindagani ki haqiqat kohkan kai dil se puchh

ju-e-shir-o-tesha-o-sang-e-garan hai zindagi

bandagi men ghat ke rah jaati hai ik ju-e-kam-ab

aur azadi men bahr-e-be-karan hai zindagi

ashkara hai ye apni quvvat-e-tasḳhir se

garche ik mitti ke paikar men nihan hai zindagi

qulzum-e-hasti se to ubhra hai manind-e-habab

is ziyan-ḳhane men tera imtihan hai zindagi

ḳhaam hai jab tak tu hai mitti ka ik ambar tu

puḳhta ho jaae tu hai shamsher-e-be-zinhar tu

ho sadaqat ke liye jis dil men marne ki tadap

pahle apne paikar-e-ḳhaki men jaan paida kare

phunk Daale ye zamin-o-asman mustaar

aur ḳhakistar se aap apna jahan paida kare

zindagi ki quvvat-e-pinhan ko kar de ashkar

ta ye chingari frogh-e-javedan paida kare

ḳhak-e-mashriq par chamak jaae misal-e-aftab

ta-badaḳhshan phir vahi laal-e-giran paida kare

su-e-gardun nala-e-shab-gir ka bheje safir

raat ke taron men apne raz-dan paida kare

ye ghadi mahshar ki hai to arsa-e-mehshar men hai

pesh kar ghafil amal koi agar daftar men hai

saltanat

aa bata.un tujh ko ramz-e-aya-e-innal-muluk

saltanat aqvam-e-ghalib ki hai ik jadugari

ḳhvab se be-dar hota hai zara mahkum agar

phir sula deti hai us ko hukmaran ki sahiri

jadu-e-mahmud ki tasir se chashm-e-ayaz

dekhti hai halqa-e-gardan men saz-e-dil-bari

ḳhun-e-israil aa jaata hai aḳhir josh men

tod deta hai koi muusa tilism-e-samari

sarvari zeba faqat us zat-e-be-hamta ko hai

hukmaran hai ik vahi baaqi butan-e-azari

az ghulami fitrat-e-azad ra rusva makun

ta-tarashi ḳhvaja-e-az-barahman kafir tiri

hai vahi saz-e-kuhan maghrib ka jamhuri nizam

jis ke pardon men nahin ghair-az-nava-e-qaisari

dev-e-istibdad jamhuri qaba men pa-e-kub

tu samajhta hai ye azadi ki hai nilam-pari

majlis-e-ain-o-islah-o-riayat-o-huquq

tibb-e-maghrib men maze mithe asar ḳhvab-avari

garmi-e-guftar aza-e-majalis al-aman

ye bhi ik sarmaya-daron ki hai jang-e-zargari

is sarab-e-rang-o-bu ko gulistan samjha hai tu

aah ai nadan qafas ko ashiyan samjha hai tu

sarmaya-o-mehnat

banda-e-mazdur ko ja kar mira paigham de

ḳhizr ka paigham kya hai ye payam-e-kaenat

ai ki tujh ko kha gaya sarmaya-dar-e-hila-gar

shaḳh-e-ahu par rahi sadiyon talak teri barat

dast-e-daulat-afrin ko muzd yuun milti rahi

ahl-e-sarvat jaise dete hain gharibon ko zakat

sahir-al-mut ne tujh ko diya barg-e-hashish

aur tu ai be-ḳhabar samjha use shaḳh-e-nabat

nasl qaumiyat kalisa saltanat tahzib rang

ḳhvajgi ne ḳhuub chun chun ke banae muskirat

kat mara nadan ḳhayali devtaon ke liye

sukr ki lazzat men tu lutva gaya naqd-e-hayat

makr ki chalon se baazi le gaya sarmaya-dar

intiha-e-sadgi se kha gaya mazdur maat

uth ki ab bazm-e-jahan ka aur hi andaz hai

mashriq-o-maghrib men tere daur ka aghaz hai

himmat-e-ali to dariya bhi nahin karti qubul

ghuncha saan ghafil tire daman men shabnam kab talak

naghma-e-bedari-e-jamhur hai saman-e-aish

qissa-e-ḳhvab-avar askandar-o-jam kab talak

aftab-e-taza paida batn-e-giti se hua

asman Duube hue taron ka matam kab talak

tod Dalin fitrat-e-insan ne zanjiren tamam

duri-e-jannat se roti chashm-e-adam kab talak

baghban-e-chara-farma se ye kahti hai bahar

zaḳhm-e-gul ke vaste tadbir-e-marham kab talak

kirmak-e-nadan tavaf-e-shama se azad ho

apni fitrat ke tajalli-zar men abad ho

duniya-e-islam

kya sunata hai mujhe turk-o-arab ki dastan

mujh se kuchh pinhan nahin islamiyon ka soz-o-saz

le gae taslis ke farzand miras-e-ḳhalil

ḳhisht-e-buniyad-e-kalisa ban gai ḳhak-e-hijaz

ho gai rusva zamane men kulah-e-lala-rang

jo sarapa naaz the hain aaj majbur-e-niyaz

le raha hai mai-faroshan-e-farangistan se paars

vo mai-e-sarkash hararat jis ki hai mina-gudaz

hikmat-e-maghrib se millat ki ye kaifiyyat hui

tukde tukde jis tarah sone ko kar deta hai gaaz

ho gaya manind-e-ab arzan musalman ka lahu

muztarib hai tu ki tera dil nahin dana-e-raz

guft ruumi har bana-e-kuhana ki-abadan kunand

mi na-dani avval aan buniyad ra viran kunand

mulk hathon se gaya millat ki ankhen khul gaiin

haq tira chashme ata kar dast-e-ghafil dar nigar

momyai ki gadai se to behtar hai shikast

mor-e-be-par hajate pesh-e-sulaimane mabar

rabt-o-zabt-e-millat-e-baiza hai mashriq ki najat

asia vaale hain is nukte se ab tak be-ḳhabar

phir siyasat chhod kar daḳhil hisar-e-din men ho

mulk-o-daulat hai faqat hifz-e-haram ka ik samar

ek huun muslim haram ki pasbani ke liye

niil ke sahil se le kar ta-ba-ḳhak-e-kashghar

jo karega imtiyaz-e-rang-o-ḳhun mit jaega

turk-e-ḳhargahi ho ya arabi-e-vala-guhar

nasl agar muslim ki maz.hab par muqaddam ho gai

ud gaya duniya se tu manind-e-ḳhak-e-rah-guzar

ta-ḳhilafat ki bina duniya men ho phir ustuvar

la kahin se DhunD kar aslaf ka qalb-o-jigar

ai ki na-shinasi ḳhafi ra az jali hushiyar baash

ai giraftar-e-abu-bakr-o-ali hushiyar-bash

ishq ko fariyad lazim thi so vo bhi ho chuki

ab zara dil thaam kar fariyad ki tasir dekh

tu ne dekha satvat-e-raftar-e-dariya ka uruuj

mauj-e-muztar kis tarah banti hai ab zanjir dekh

aam hurriyat ka jo dekha tha ḳhvab islam ne

ai musalman aaj to us ḳhvab ki tabir dekh

apni ḳhakistar samundar ko hai saman-e-vajud

mar ke phir hota hai paida ye jahan-e-pir dekh

khol kar ankhen mire aina-e-guftar men

aane vaale daur ki dhundli si ik tasvir dekh

azmuda fitna hai ik aur bhi gardun ke paas

samne taqdir ke rusvai-e-tadbir dekh

muslim asti siina ra az arzu-abad daar

har zaman pesh-e-nazar la-yuḳhlif-ul-miad daar
