akbar-allahabadi

Nai Tahzib

ye maujuda tariqe rahi-e-mulk-e-adam honge

nai tahzib hogi aur nae saman baham honge

nae unvan se zinat dikhaenge hasin apni

na aisa pech zulfon men na gesu men ye kham honge

na khatunon men rah jaegi parde ki ye pabandi

na ghunghat is tarah se hajib-e-ru-e-sanam honge

badal jaega andaz-e-tabae daur-e-gardun se

nai surat ki khushiyan aur nae asbab-e-gham honge

na paida hogi khat-e-naskh se shan-e-adab-agin

na nastaliq harf is taur se zeb-e-raqam honge

khabar deti hai tahrik-e-hava tabdil-e-mausam ki

khilenge aur hi gul zamzame bulbul ke kam honge

aqaed par qayamat aaegi tarmim-e-millat se

naya kaaba banega maghribi putle sanam honge

bahut honge mughanni naghma-e-taqlid europe ke

magar bejod honge is liye be-tal-o-sam honge

hamari istelahon se zaban na-ashna hogi

lughat-e-maghribi bazar ki bhasha se zam honge

badal jaega meyar-e-sharafat chashm-e-duniya men

ziyada the jo apne zoam men vo sab se kam honge

guzishta azmaton ke tazkire bhi rah na jaenge

kitabon hi men dafn afsana-e-jah-o-hasham honge

kisi ko is taghayyur ka na his hoga na gham hoga

hue jis saaz se paida usi ke zer-o-bam honge

tumhen is inqilab-e-dahr ka kya gham hai ai ‘akbar’

bahut nazdik hain vo din ki tum hoge na ham honge
