zehra-nigaah

Muslim Muslim Fasadat

subh-dam jo dekha tha

kya hara-bhara ghar tha

Dantti hui biivi

bhagte hue bachche

rassiyon ki banhon men

jhulte hue kapde

bolte hue bartan

jagte hue chulhe

ik taraf ko gudiya ka

adh-bana gharaunda tha

duur ek kone men

cycle ka pahiya tha

murghiyon ke Darbe the

kabuken thin, pinjra tha

tiis gaz ke angan men

sab hi kuchh to rakkha tha

ek pal men ye manzar

kyuun badal sa jaata hai

ik dhuan sa uthta hai

haan magar dhundalke men

kuchh dikhai deta hai

ja-namaz ka kona

jhadiyon men uljha hai

safha-e-kalam-e-pak

khaak par larazta hai

saath aur khabron ke

ye khabar bhi chhapti hai

log is ko padhte hain

baten hoti rahti hain

kaam chalte rahte hain

embulance edhi ki

bain karti aati hai

sab jali kati lashen

saath le ke jaati hai

subh tak sabhi lashen

dafn kar di jaati hain

auraton ki bachchon ki

budhon aur javanon ki

masjidon se hoti hain

barishen azanon ki

la-ilah il-lallah

la-ilaha il-lallah
