Shikwa

kyuun zayan-kar banun sud-faramosh rahun

fikr-e-farda na karun mahv-e-gham-e-dosh rahun

naale bulbul ke sunun aur hama-tan gosh rahun

ham-nava main bhi koi gul huun ki khamosh rahun

jurat-amoz miri tab-e-sukhan hai mujh ko

shikva allah se khakam-ba-dahan hai mujh ko

hai baja sheva-e-taslim men mashhur hain ham

qissa-e-dard sunate hain ki majbur hain ham

saaz khamosh hain fariyad se mamur hain ham

naala aata hai agar lab pe to mazur hain ham

ai khuda shikva-e-arbab-e-vafa bhi sun le

khugar-e-hamd se thoda sa gila bhi sun le

thi to maujud azal se hi tiri zat-e-qadim

phuul tha zeb-e-chaman par na pareshan thi shamim

shart insaf hai ai sahib-e-altaf-e-amim

bu-e-gul phailti kis tarah jo hoti na nasim

ham ko jamiyat-e-khatir ye pareshani thi

varna ummat tire mahbub ki divani thi

ham se pahle tha ajab tere jahan ka manzar

kahin masjud the patthar kahin mabud shajar

khugar-e-paikar-e-mahsus thi insan ki nazar

manta phir koi an-dekhe khuda ko kyunkar

tujh ko malum hai leta tha koi naam tira

quvvat-e-bazu-e-muslim ne kiya kaam tira

bas rahe the yahin saljuq bhi turani bhi

ahl-e-chin chiin men iran men sasani bhi

isi mamure men abad the yunani bhi

isi duniya men yahudi bhi the nasrani bhi

par tire naam pe talvar uthai kis ne

baat jo bigdi hui thi vo banai kis ne

the hamin ek tire marka-araon men

khushkiyon men kabhi ladte kabhi dariyaon men

diin azanen kabhi europe ke kalisaon men

kabhi africa ke tapte hue sahraon men

shaan ankhon men na jachti thi jahan-daron ki

kalma padhte the hamin chhanv men talvaron ki

ham jo jiite the to jangon ki musibat ke liye

aur marte the tire naam ki azmat ke liye

thi na kuchh teghzani apni hukumat ke liye

sar-ba-kaf phirte the kya dahr men daulat ke liye

qaum apni jo zar-o-mal-e-jahan par marti

but-faroshi ke evaz but-shikani kyuun karti

tal na sakte the agar jang men ad jaate the

paanv sheron ke bhi maidan se ukhad jaate the

tujh se sarkash hua koi to bigad jaate the

tegh kya chiiz hai ham top se lad jaate the

naqsh-e-tauhid ka har dil pe bithaya ham ne

zer-e-khanjar bhi ye paigham sunaya ham ne

tu hi kah de ki ukhada dar-e-khaibar kis ne

shahr qaisar ka jo tha us ko kiya sar kis ne

tode makhluq khudavandon ke paikar kis ne

kaat kar rakh diye kuffar ke lashkar kis ne

kis ne thanDa kiya atish-kada-e-iran ko

kis ne phir zinda kiya tazkira-e-yazdan ko

kaun si qaum faqat teri talabgar hui

aur tere liye zahmat-kash-e-paikar hui

kis ki shamshir jahangir jahan-dar hui

kis ki takbir se duniya tiri bedar hui

kis ki haibat se sanam sahme hue rahte the

munh ke bal gir ke hu-allahu-ahad kahte the

aa gaya ain ladai men agar vaqt-e-namaz

qibla-ru ho ke zamin-bos hui qaum-e-hijaz

ek hi saf men khade ho gae mahmud o ayaaz

na koi banda raha aur na koi banda-navaz

banda o sahab o mohtaj o ghani ek hue

teri sarkar men pahunche to sabhi ek hue

mahfil-e-kaun-o-makan men sahar o shaam phire

mai-e-tauhid ko le kar sifat-e-jam phire

koh men dasht men le kar tira paigham phire

aur malum hai tujh ko kabhi nakam phire

dasht to dasht hain dariya bhi na chhode ham ne

bahr-e-zulmat men dauda diye ghode ham ne

safha-e-dahr se batil ko mitaya ham ne

nau-e-insan ko ghulami se chhudaya ham ne

tere kaabe ko jabinon se basaya ham ne

tere quran ko sinon se lagaya ham ne

phir bhi ham se ye gila hai ki vafadar nahin

ham vafadar nahin tu bhi to dildar nahin

ummaten aur bhi hain un men gunahgar bhi hain

ijz vaale bhi hain mast-e-mai-e-pindar bhi hain

un men kahil bhi hain ghafil bhi hain hushyar bhi hain

saikdon hain ki tire naam se be-zar bhi hain

rahmaten hain tiri aghyar ke kashanon par

barq girti hai to bechare musalmanon par

but sanam-khanon men kahte hain musalman gae

hai khushi un ko ki kaabe ke nigahban gae

manzil-e-dahr se unton ke hudi-khvan gae

apni baghlon men dabae hue quran gae

khanda-zan kufr hai ehsas tujhe hai ki nahin

apni tauhid ka kuchh paas tujhe hai ki nahin

ye shikayat nahin hain un ke khazane mamur

nahin mahfil men jinhen baat bhi karne ka shu.ur

qahr to ye hai ki kafir ko milen huur o qusur

aur bechare musalman ko faqat vada-e-hur

ab vo altaf nahin ham pe inayat nahin

baat ye kya hai ki pahli si mudarat nahin

kyuun musalmanon men hai daulat-e-duniya nayab

teri qudrat to hai vo jis ki na had hai na hisab

tu jo chahe to uthe sina-e-sahra se habab

rah-rav-e-dasht ho saili-zada-e-mauj-e-sarab

tan-e-aghyar hai rusvai hai nadari hai

kya tire naam pe marne ka evaz khvari hai

bani aghyar ki ab chahne vaali duniya

rah gai apne liye ek khayali duniya

ham to rukhsat hue auron ne sambhali duniya

phir na kahna hui tauhid se khali duniya

ham to jiite hain ki duniya men tira naam rahe

kahin mumkin hai ki saaqi na rahe jaam rahe

teri mahfil bhi gai chahne vaale bhi gae

shab ki aahen bhi gaiin subh ke naale bhi gae

dil tujhe de bhi gae apna sila le bhi gae

aa ke baithe bhi na the aur nikale bhi gae

aae ushshaq gae vada-e-farda le kar

ab unhen DhunD charagh-e-rukh-e-zeba le kar

dard-e-laila bhi vahi qais ka pahlu bhi vahi

najd ke dasht o jabal men ram-e-ahu bhi vahi

ishq ka dil bhi vahi husn ka jaadu bhi vahi

ummat-e-ahmad-e-mursil bhi vahi tu bhi vahi

phir ye azurdagi-e-ghair sabab kya maani

apne shaidaon pe ye chashm-e-ghazab kya maani

tujh ko chhoda ki rasul-e-arabi ko chhoda

but-gari pesha kiya but-shikani ko chhoda

ishq ko ishq ki ashufta-sari ko chhoda

rasm-e-salman o uvais-e-qarani ko chhoda

aag takbir ki sinon men dabi rakhte hain

zindagi misl-e-bilal-e-habashi rakhte hain

ishq ki khair vo pahli si ada bhi na sahi

jada-paimali-e-taslim-o-raza bhi na sahi

muztarib dil sifat-e-qibla-numa bhi na sahi

aur pabandi-e-ain-e-vafa bhi na sahi

kabhi ham se kabhi ghairon se shanasai hai

baat kahne ki nahin tu bhi to harjai hai

sar-e-faran pe kiya diin ko kamil tu ne

ik ishare men hazaron ke liye dil tu ne

atish-andoz kiya ishq ka hasil tu ne

phunk di garmi-e-rukhsar se mahfil tu ne

aaj kyuun siine hamare sharer-abad nahin

ham vahi sokhta-saman hain tujhe yaad nahin

vadi-e-najd men vo shor-e-salasil na raha

qais divana-e-nazzara-e-mahmil na raha

hausle vo na rahe ham na rahe dil na raha

ghar ye ujda hai ki tu raunaq-e-mahfil na raha

ai khusha aan roz ki aai o ba-sad naaz aai

be-hijabana su-e-mahfil-e-ma baaz aai

bada-kash ghair hain gulshan men lab-e-ju baithe

sunte hain jam-ba-kaf naghma-e-ku-ku baithe

daur hangama-e-gulzar se yaksu baithe

tere divane bhi hain muntazir-e-hu baithe

apne parvanon ko phir zauq-e-khud-afrozi de

barq-e-derina ko farman-e-jigar-sozi de

qaum-e-avara inan-tab hai phir su-e-hijaz

le uda bulbul-e-be-par ko mazaq-e-parvaz

muztarib-e-bagh ke har ghunche men hai bu-e-niyaz

tu zara chhed to de tishna-e-mizrab hai saaz

naghme betab hain taron se nikalne ke liye

tuur muztar hai usi aag men jalne ke liye

mushkilen ummat-e-marhum ki asan kar de

mor-e-be-maya ko ham-dosh-e-sulaiman kar de

jins-e-na-yab-e-mohabbat ko phir arzan kar de

hind ke dair-nashinon ko musalman kar de

ju-e-khun mi chakad az hasrat-e-dairina-e-ma

mi tapad naala ba-nishtar kada-e-sina-e-ma

bu-e-gul le gai bairun-e-chaman raz-e-chaman

kya qayamat hai ki khud phuul hain ghammaz-e-chaman

ahd-e-gul khatm hua tuut gaya saz-e-chaman

ud gae Daliyon se zamzama-pardaz-e-chaman

ek bulbul hai ki mahv-e-tarannum ab tak

us ke siine men hai naghmon ka talatum ab tak

qumriyan shakh-e-sanobar se gurezan bhi huiin

pattiyan phuul ki jhad jhad ke pareshan bhi huiin

vo purani ravishen baagh ki viran bhi huiin

Daliyan pairahan-e-barg se uryan bhi huiin

qaid-e-mausam se tabiat rahi azad us ki

kaash gulshan men samajhta koi fariyad us ki

lutf marne men hai baaqi na maza jiine men

kuchh maza hai to yahi khun-e-jigar piine men

kitne betab hain jauhar mire aine men

kis qadar jalve tadapte hain mire siine men

is gulistan men magar dekhne vaale hi nahin

daagh jo siine men rakhte hon vo laale hi nahin

chaak is bulbul-e-tanha ki nava se dil hon

jagne vaale isi bang-e-dira se dil hon

yaani phir zinda nae ahd-e-vafa se dil hon

phir isi bada-e-dairina ke pyase dil hon

ajami khum hai to kya mai to hijazi hai miri

naghma hindi hai to kya lai to hijazi hai miri
