zehra-nigaah

Qissa Gul-Baadshah Ka

naam mera hai gul-badshah

umr meri hai terah baras

aur kahani

meri umar ki tarah se muntashir muntashir

mukhtasar mukhtasar

meri be-nam be-chehra maan

be-dava mar gai

baap ne us ko burqe men dafna diya

us ko Dar tha ki munkir-nakir

meri amman ka chehra na dekhen

vaise zinda thii, jab bhi vo madfun thi

baap ka naam zar-taj-gul

umar battis baras

vo mujahid shahadat ka talib rah-e-haq ka musafir hua

aur jam-e-shahadat bhi us ne

apne bhaai ke hathon piya

jo shumali mujahid tha

aur panj-vaqta namazi bhi tha

masala is shahadat ka pechida hai

is ko behtar yahi hai yahin chhod den

ab bahar-hal baaba to jannat men hai

us ke hathon men jam-e-tuhur

us ki banhon men huur o qusur

meri taqdir men bam-dhamake dhuan

pighalti hui ye zamin

bikharta hua asman

bad-az-marg vo zinda hai

zindagi mujh se sharminda hai

kal sar-e-sham dushman ne aate hue

bam ke hamrah barsa diye

mujh pe kuchh piile thaile

jin se mujh ko mile

gol roti ke tukde

ek makkhan ki tikiya

ek sharbat ki botal

murabbe ka Dabba

is ke badle men vo le gae

mere bhaai ka dast-e-mashaqqat

jis men minnat ka Dora bandha tha

meri chhoti bahan ka vo paanv

jis se rang-e-hina phutta tha

log kahte hain ye amn ki jang hai

amn ki jang men hamla-avar

sirf bachchon ko be-dast-o-pa chhodte hain

un ko bhuka nahin chhodte

akhir insaniyat bhi koi chiiz hai

main dahakte pahadon men tanha

apne tarke ki banduq thame khada huun

tamasha-e-ahl-e-karam dekhta tha

tamasha-e-ahl-e-karam dekhta huun
