Taswir-E-Dard

nahin minnat-kash-e-tab-e-shunidan dastan meri

khamoshi guftugu hai be-zabani hai zaban meri

ye dastur-e-zaban-bandi hai kaisa teri mahfil men

yahan to baat karne ko tarasti hai zaban meri

uthae kuchh varaq laale ne kuchh nargis ne kuchh gul ne

chaman men har taraf bikhri hui hai dastan meri

uda li qumriyon ne tutiyon ne andalibon ne

chaman valon ne mil kar luut li tarz-e-fughan meri

tapak ai shama aansu ban ke parvane ki ankhon se

sarapa dard huun hasrat bhari hai dastan meri

ilahi phir maza kya hai yahan duniya men rahne ka

hayat-e-javedan meri na marg-e-na-gahan meri

mira rona nahin rona hai ye saare gulistan ka

vo gul huun main khizan har gul ki hai goya khizan meri

darin hasrat sara umrist afsun-e-jaras daram

z faiz-e-dil tapidan-ha kharosh-e-be-nafas daram

riyaz-e-dahr men na-ashna-e-bazm-e-ishrat huun

khushi roti hai jis ko main vo mahrum-e-masarrat huun

miri bigdi hui taqdir ko roti hai goyai

main harf-e-zer-e-lab sharminda-e-gosh-e-samaat huun

pareshan huun main musht-e-khak lekin kuchh nahin khulta

sikandar huun ki aina huun ya gard-e-kudurat huun

ye sab kuchh hai magar hasti miri maqsad hai qudrat ka

sarapa nuur ho jis ki haqiqat main vo zulmat huun

khazina huun chhupaya mujh ko musht-e-khak-e-sahra ne

kisi ko kya khabar hai main kahan huun kis ki daulat huun

nazar meri nahin mamnun-e-sair-e-arsa-e-hasti

main vo chhoti si duniya huun ki aap apni vilayat huun

na sahba huun na saaqi huun na masti huun na paimana

main is mai-khana-e-hasti men har shai ki haqiqat huun

mujhe raz-e-do-alam dil ka aina dikhata hai

vahi kahta huun jo kuchh samne ankhon ke aata hai

ata aisa bayan mujh ko hua rangin-bayanon men

ki bam-e-arsh ke taair hain mere ham-zabanon men

asar ye bhi hai ik mere junun-e-fitna-saman ka

mira aina-e-dil hai qaza ke raz-danon men

rulata hai tira nazzara ai hindostan mujh ko

ki ibrat-khez hai tera fasana sab fasanon men

diya rona mujhe aisa ki sab kuchh de diya goya

likha kalk-e-azal ne mujh ko tere nauha-khvanon men

nishan-e-barg-e-gul tak bhi na chhod us baagh men gulchin

tiri qismat se razm-araiyan hain baghbanon men

chhupa kar astin men bijliyan rakkhi hain gardun ne

anadil baagh ke ghafil na baithen ashiyanon men

sun ai ghafil sada meri ye aisi chiiz hai jis ko

vazifa jaan kar padhte hain taair bostanon men

vatan ki fikr kar nadan musibat aane vaali hai

tiri barbadiyon ke mashvare hain asmanon men

zara dekh us ko jo kuchh ho raha hai hone vaala hai

dhara kya hai bhala ahd-e-kuhan ki dastanon men

ye khamoshi kahan tak lazzat-e-fariyad paida kar

zamin par tu ho aur teri sada ho asmanon men

na samjhoge to mit jaoge ai hindostan vaalo

tumhari dastan tak bhi na hogi dastanon men

yahi ain-e-qudrat hai yahi uslub-e-fitrat hai

jo hai rah-e-amal men gam-zan mahbub-e-fitrat hai

huvaida aaj apne zakhm-e-pinhan kar ke chhodunga

lahu ro ro ke mahfil ko gulistan kar ke chhodunga

jalana hai mujhe har sham-e-dil ko soz-e-pinhan se

tiri tarik raton men charaghan kar ke chhodunga

magar ghunchon ki surat huun dil-e-dard-ashna paida

chaman men musht-e-khak apni pareshan kar ke chhodunga

pirona ek hi tasbih men in bikhre danon ko

jo mushkil hai to is mushkil ko asan kar ke chhodunga

mujhe ai ham-nashin rahne de shaghl-e-sina-kavi men

ki main dagh-e-mohabbat ko numayan kar ke chhodunga

dikha dunga jahan ko jo miri ankhon ne dekha hai

tujhe bhi surat-e-aina hairan kar ke chhodunga

jo hai pardon men pinhan chashm-e-bina dekh leti hai

zamane ki tabiat ka taqaza dekh leti hai

kiya rifat ki lazzat se na dil ko ashna tu ne

gizari umr pasti men misal-e-naqsh-e-pa tu ne

raha dil-basta-e-mahfil magar apni nigahon ko

kiya bairun-e-mahfil se na hairat-ashna tu ne

fida karta raha dil ko hasinon ki adaon par

magar dekhi na us aine men apni ada tu ne

taassub chhod nadan dahr ke aina-khane men

ye tasviren hain teri jin ko samjha hai bura tu ne

sarapa nala-e-bedad-e-soz-e-zindagi ho ja

sapand-asa girah men bandh rakkhi hai sada tu ne

safa-e-dil ko kya araish-e-rang-e-taalluq se

kaf-e-aina par bandhi hai o nadan hina tu ne

zamin kya asman bhi teri kaj-bini pe rota hai

ghazab hai satr-e-quran ko chalipa kar diya tu ne

zaban se gar kiya tauhid ka daava to kya hasil

banaya hai but-e-pindar ko apna khuda tu ne

kuen men tu ne yusuf ko jo dekha bhi to kya dekha

are ghafil jo mutlaq tha muqayyad kar diya tu ne

havas bala-e-mimbar hai tujhe rangin-bayani ki

nasihat bhi tiri surat hai ik afsana-khvani ki

dikha vo husn-e-alam-soz apni chashm-e-pur-nam ko

jo tadpata hai parvane ko rulvata hai shabnam ko

zara nazzara hi ai bul-havas maqsad nahin us ka

banaya hai kisi ne kuchh samajh kar chashm-e-adam ko

agar dekha bhi us ne saare aalam ko to kya dekha

nazar aai na kuchh apni haqiqat jaam se jam ko

shajar hai firqa-arai taassub hai samar us ka

ye vo phal hai ki jannat se nikalvata hai aadam ko

na uttha jazba-e-khurshid se ik barg-e-gul tak bhi

ye rifat ki tamanna hai ki le udti hai shabnam ko

phira karte nahin majruh-e-ulfat fikr-e-darman men

ye zakhmi aap kar lete hain paida apne marham ko

mohabbat ke sharar se dil sarapa nuur hota hai

zara se biij se paida riyaz-e-tur hota hai

dava har dukh ki hai majruh-e-tegh-e-arzu rahna

ilaj-e-zakhm hai azad-e-ehsan-e-rafu rahna

sharab-e-be-khudi se ta-falak parvaz hai meri

shikast-e-rang se sikha hai main ne ban ke bu rahna

thame kya dida-e-giryan vatan ki nauha-khvani men

ibadat chashm-e-shair ki hai har dam ba-vazu rahna

banaen kya samajh kar shakh-e-gul par ashiyan apna

chaman men aah kya rahna jo ho be-abru rahna

jo tu samjhe to azadi hai poshida mohabbat men

ghulami hai asir-e-imtiyaz-e-ma-o-tu rahna

ye istighna hai paani men nigun rakhta hai saghar ko

tujhe bhi chahiye misl-e-habab-e-abju rahna

na rah apnon se be-parva isi men khair hai teri

agar manzur hai duniya men o begana-khu rahna

sharab-e-ruh-parvar hai mohabbat nau-e-insan ki

sikhaya is ne mujh ko mast be-jam-o-subu rahna

mohabbat hi se paai hai shifa bimar qaumon ne

kiya hai apne bakht-e-khufta ko bedar qaumon ne

bayaban-e-mohabbat dasht-e-ghurbat bhi vatan bhi hai

ye virana qafas bhi ashiyana bhi chaman bhi hai

mohabbat hi vo manzil hai ki manzil bhi hai sahra bhi

jaras bhi karvan bhi rahbar bhi rahzan bhi hai

maraz kahte hain sab is ko ye hai lekin maraz aisa

chhupa jis men ilaj-e-gardish-e-charkh-e-kuhan bhi hai

jalana dil ka hai goya sarapa nuur ho jaana

ye parvana jo sozan ho to sham-e-anjuman bhi hai

vahi ik husn hai lekin nazar aata hai har shai men

ye shirin bhi hai goya be-sutun bhi kohkan bhi hai

ujada hai tamiz-e-millat-o-ain ne qaumon ko

mire ahl-e-vatan ke dil men kuchh fikr-e-vatan bhi hai

sukut-amoz tul-e-dastan-e-dard hai varna

zaban bhi hai hamare munh men aur tab-e-sukhan bhi hai

nami-gardid ko tah rishta-e-maani riha kardam

hikayat buud be-payan ba-khamoshi ada kardam
