Sham-E-Ayaadat

ye kaun muskurahaton ka karvan liye hue

shabab-e-sher-o-rang-o-nur ka dhuan liye hue

dhuan ki barq-e-husn ka mahakta shoala hai koi

chatili zindagi ki shadmaniyan liye hue

labon se pankhudi gulab ki hayat mange hai

kanval si aankh sau nigah-e-mehrban liye hue

qadam qadam pe de uthi hai lau zamin-e-rah-guzar

ada ada men be-shumar bijliyan liye hue

nikalte baithte dinon ki ahaten nigah men

rasile hont fasl-e-gul ki dastan liye hue

khutut-e-rukh men jalva-gar vafa ke naqsh sar-ba-sar

dil-e-ghani men kul hisab-e-dostan liye hue

vo muskurati ankhen jin men raqs karti hai bahar

shafaq ki gul ki bijliyon ki shokhiyan liye hue

ada-e-husn barq-pash shola-zan nazara-soz

faza-e-husn uudi uudi bijliyan liye hue

jagane vaale naghma-e-sahar labon pe maujzan

nigahen niind laane vaali loriyan liye hue

vo nargis-e-siyah-e-nim-baz, mai-kada-ba-dosh

hazar mast raton ki javaniyan liye hue

taghaful-o-khumar aur be-khudi ki ot men

nigahen ik jahan ki hoshiyariyan liye hue

hari-bhari ragon men vo chahakta bolta lahu

vo sochta hua badan khud ik jahan liye hue

za-farq ta-qadam tamam chehra jism-e-naznin

latif jagmagahaton ka karvan liye hue

tabassumash takallume takallumash tarannume

nafas nafas men thartharata saz-e-jan liye hue

jabin-e-nur jis pe pad rahi hai narm chhut si

khud apni jagmagahton ki kahkashan liye hue

”sitara-bar o mah-chakan o khur-fishan” jamal-e-yar

jahan-e-nur karvan-ba-karvan liye hue

vo zulf-e-kham-ba-kham shamim-e-mast se dhuan dhuan

vo rukh chaman chaman bahar-e-javedan liye hue

ba-masti-e-jamal-e-kaenat, khvab-e-kaenat

ba-gardish-e-nigah daur-e-asman liye hue

ye kaun aa gaya mire qarib uzv uzv men

javaniyan, javaniyon ki andhiyan liye hue

ye kaun aankh pad rahi hai mujh par itne pyaar se

vo bhuli si vo yaad si kahaniyan liye hue

ye kis ki mahki mahki sansen taaza kar gaiin dimagh

shabon ke raaz nur-e-mah ki narmiyan liye hue

ye kin nigahon ne mire gale men bahen Daal diin

jahan bhar ke dukh se dard se amaan liye hue

nigah-e-yar de gai mujhe sukun-e-be-karan

vo be-kahi vafaon ki gavahiyan liye hue

mujhe jaga raha hai maut ki ghunudgi se kaun

nigahon men suhag-rat ka saman liye hue

miri fasurda aur bujhi hui jabin ko chhu liya

ye kis nigah ki kiran ne saz-e-jan liye hue

sute se chehre par hayat rasmasati muskurati

na jaane kab ke ansuon ki dastan liye hue

tabassum-e-sahar hai aspatal ki udaas shaam

ye kaun aa gaya nashat-e-be-karan liye hue

tire na aane tak agarche mehrban tha ik jahan

main ro ke rah gaya huun sau gham-e-nihan liye hue

zamin muskura uthi ye shaam jagmaga uthi

bahar lahlha uthi shamim-e-jan liye hue

faza-e-aspatal hai ki rang-o-bu ki karvaten

tire jamal-e-lala-gun ki dastan liye hue

‘firaq’ aaj pichhli raat kyuun na mar rahun ki ab

hayat aisi shamen hogi phir kahan liye hue

(2)

magar nahin kuchh aur maslahat thi us ke aane men

jamal-o-did-e-yar the naya jahan liye hue

isi nae jahan men aadmi banenge aadmi

jabin pe shahkar-e-dahr ka nishan liye hue

isi nae jahan men aadmi banenge devta

taharaton ka farq-e-pak par nishan liye hue

khudai aadmi ki hogi is nae jahan par

sitaron ke hain dil ye pesh-goiyan liye hue

sulagte dil sharar-fishan o shoala-bar barq-pash

guzarte din hayat-e-nau ki surkhiyan liye hue

tamam qaul aur qasam nigah-e-naz-e-yar thi

tulu-e-zindagi-e-nau ki dastan liye hue

naya janam hua mira ki zindagi nai mili

jiyunga sham-e-did ki nishaniyan liye hue

na dekha aankh utha ke ahd-e-nau ke parda-daron ne

guzar gaya zamana yad-e-raftagan liye hue

ham inqilabiyon ne ye jahan bacha liya magar

abhi hai ik jahan vo bad-gumaniyan liye hue

(3)

nae zamane men agar udaas khud ko paunga

ye shaam yaad kar ke apne gham ko bhuul jaunga

ayadat-e-habib se vo aaj zindagi mili

khushi bhi chaunk chauk uthi gham ki aankh khul gai

agarche doctor ne mujh ko maut se bacha liya

par is ke baad us nigah ne mujhe jila liya

nigah-e-yar tujh se apni manzilen main paunga

tujhe jo bhuul jaunga to raah bhuul jaunga

(4)

qarib-tar main ho chala huun dukh ki kaenat se

main ajnabi nahin raha hayat se mamat se

vo dukh sahe ki mujh pe khul gaya hai dard-e-kaenat

hai apne ansuon se mujh pe aina gham-e-hayat

ye be-qusur jan-dar dard jhelte hue

ye khak-o-khun ke putle apni jaan pe khelte hue

vo ziist ki karah jis se be-qarar hai faza

vo zindagi ki aah jis se kaanp uthti hai faza

kafan hai ansuon ka dukh ki maari kaenat par

hayat kya inhen haqiqaton se hona be-khabar

jo aankh jagti rahi hai aadmi ki maut par

vo abr-e-rang-rang ko bhi dekhti hai sada-tar

sikha gaya dukh mira purani piir janna

nigah-e-yar thi jahan bhi aaj meri rahnuma

yahi nahin ki mujh ko aaj zindagi nai mili

haqiqat-e-hayat mujh pe sau tarah se khul gai

gavah hai ye shaam aur nigah-e-yar hai gavah

khayal-e-maut ko main apne dil men ab na dunga raah

jiyunga haan jiyunga ai nigah-e-ashna-e-yar

sada suhag zindagi hai aur jahan sada-bahar

(5)

abhi to kitne na-shunida naghma-e-hayat hain

abhi nihan dilon se kitne raz-e-kaenat hain

abhi to zindagi ke na-chashida ras hain saikdon

abhi to haath men ham ahl-e-gham ke jas hain saikdon

abhi vo le rahi hain meri shaeri men karvaten

abhi chamakne vaali hai chhupi hui haqiqaten

abhi to bahr-o-bar pe so rahi hain meri vo sadaen

samet luun unhen to phir vo kaenat ko jagaen

abhi to ruuh ban ke zarre zarre men samaunga

abhi to subh ban ke main ufuq pe thartharaunga

abhi to meri shaeri haqiqaten lutaegi

abhi miri sada-e-dard ik jahan pe chhaegi

abhi to aadmi asir-e-dam hai ghulam hai

abhi to zindagi sad-inqalab ka payam hai

abhi tamam zakhm o daagh hai tamaddun-e-jahan

abhi rukh-e-bashar pe hain bahmiyat ki jhaiyan

abhi mashiyyaton pe fath pa nahin saka bashar

abhi muqaddaron ko bas men la nahin saka bashar

abhi to is dukhi jahan men maut hi ka daur hai

abhi to jis ko zindagi kahen vo chiiz aur hai

abhi to khuun thokti hai zindagi bahar men

abhi to rone ki sada hai naghma-e-sitar men

abhi to udti hain rukh-e-bahar par havaiyan

abhi to didani hain har chaman ki be-fazaiyan

abhi faza-e-dahr legi karvaton pe karvaten

abhi to soti hain havaon ki vo sansanahaten

ki jis ko sunte hi hukumaton ke rang-e-rukh uden

chapeten jin ki sarkashon ki gardanen marod den

abhi to sina-e-bashar men sote hain vo zalzale

ki jin ke jagte hi maut ka bhi dil dahal uthe

abhi to batn-e-ghaib men hai is saval ka javab

khuda-e-khair-o-shar bhi la nahin saka tha jis ki taab

abhi to god men hain devtaon ki vo mah-o-sal

jo denge badh ke barq-e-tur se hayat ko jalal

abhi rag-e-jahan men zindagi machalne vaali hai

abhi hayat ki nai sharab Dhalne vaali hai

abhi chhuri sitam ki Duub kar uchhalne vaali hai

abhi to hasrat ik jahan ki nikalne vaali hai

abhi ghan-garaj sunai degi inqalab ki

abhi to gosh-bar-sada hai bazm aftab ki

abhi to punji-vad ko jahan se mitana hai

abhi to samrajon ko saza-e-maut paana hai

abhi to daant pisti hai maut shahryaron ki

abhi to khuun utar raha hai aankhon men sitaron ki

abhi to ishtirakiyat ke jhande gadne vaale hain

abhi to jad se kisht-o-khun ke nazm ukhadne vaale hain

abhi kisan-o-kamgar raaj hone vaala hai

abhi bahut jahan men kam-kaj hone vaala hai

magar abhi to zindagi musibaton ka naam hai

abhi to niind maut ki mire liye haram hai

ye sab payam ik nigah men vo aankh de gai

ba-yak-nazar kahan kahan mujhe vo aankh le gai
