Manzar

Shaam ki sunheri chaadar odhkar jab din karvat badalta hain
Jab raat ke chehre se naqaab ahista-ahista sarakta hain
Chaandni ki pehli kiran jab shaakhon ko chhu jaati hain
Ufaq ke shaane pe sar rakhkar, jab din thak kar so jaata hain
Tab tera hi khayal zehan se ubharkar aata hain

Yeh chaandni se bheegi raat hain ya marmari badan tera
Yeh zulf hain ya darakhton ke saaye hain
Shaam ki shafaq hain ya surkh aariz tere
Yeh aankhon ki chamak hain ya taare zameen par utar aaye hain

Aisi hi haseen raat ki baahon mein kabhi chain ki neend soye the
Dil ki sabz zameen mein kaee khwab humne bhi boye the

Chand lamhon ki woh rafaqat ab bhi yaad hain mujhe
Woh saanson ki sarsarahat ab bhi yaad hain mujhe
Kaise bhuloonga woh muskurahat teri
Un hathon ki hararat ab bhi yaad hain mujhe

Mere khayal-o-khwab ka sarmaaya bata de mujhe
Kya paya hain, kya gawaya hain, ab bata de mujhe
Daaman mein tere inkaar bhi hain aur ikraar bhi
Mere hisse mein kya aaya hain ab bata de mujhe

Patjhad

Patjhad ka mausam hain
Ab bichadne ka mausam hain
Pattein bhi rang badal chuke
Ab humein bhi badalne ka mausam hain

Kuch chhod gaye apni marzi se
Kuch saba uda ke le gayi
Jo reh gaye hain shaakhon par
Un mein bechaini ka mausam hain

Maasumiyat ki woh nanhi kali
Jaane kho gayi kis gali
Dhunda bahut par mili nahin
Ab jawaani ka mausam hain

Woh khil-khilate rang-o-bu
Jinki humein bhi thi kabhi justuju
Ab na rahi woh aarzoo
Unhein yaad karne ka mausam hain

Sawaal

Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum bata
Aakhir teri marzi hain kyan
Kyun logon ko behkata hain
Aakhir tu humse chahta hain kyan

Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum bata
Kaise neend tujhe ab aayegi
Yeh jo aag lagayi hain tune
Aag yeh kaise bujh paaegi

Zaat-o-mazhab ke afreet jab shabab-o-mulk kha jayege
Kuch ronewale basti mein sirf bacche-budhe reh jayege

Mandir bhi hoga, masjid bhi hoga
Par aawaaz na koi aayegi
Kise sunaega waiz tu
Jab basti saari kho jaaegi
Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum bata
Kya neend tujhe tab aayegi

Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum bata
Kyun zameen hai meri afsurdah
Kyun mayus itne hai mere shajar
Kyun sharminda hain aasman yeh mera
Manzar yeh saare dekh ke jab
Masumiyat aansu bahaaegi
Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum bata
Kya neend tujhe tab aayegi

Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum zara
Mujhse bhi to nazre mila
Main bhi khuda ka banda hun
“Insaan” hain naam mera

Woh jaahil hain jo dhundte hain
Use Gita aur Quraanon mein
Jis naam se chaahe pukaarle hum
Woh rehta hain insaanon mein

Tod ke mandir-masjid jab
Insaniyat puji jaayegi
Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum yeh sun
ke neend humein tab aayegi

Ae rehbar-e-deen-o-qaum yeh sun
ke neend mujhe tab aayegi

Dedh Ishqiya

Dekha tujhe tab dilkashi samaj mein aayi
Bekhud hua tab zindagi samaj mein aayi

Uns ka bayaan woh karta bhi kaise
Mujrim tha woh kaise deta gawahi

“Ishq” muzaqqar hain par “Ashiqui” muannas
Qawaid-e-mohabbat kabhi samaj mein na aayi

Aqeedat mein tere sar jhukana hi pada
Khuda tujh ko maana, humne chod di khudai

Rusul-e-but-e-nazakat teri chahat ne bana diya
Ibadat se ziyada humein ashiqui hain kaam aayi

Junun is qadar khud ko tujh mein dubo du
Zaahir ho jaane de kitni hai teri gehrai

Sirf maut hain haasil-e-ishq jaana, phir bhi yahi tajweez
Hayaat yun daaman chode jaise ho teri angdayee

Chehra

Dil mein ek chehra basaaye rakha hain
Auron se yeh rishta chupaye rakha hain

Waise toh chaak hain girebaan-e-dil
Phir bhi umeed ka ek taka lagaye rakha hain

Nazar aate hain hamesha woh khushrang libaas mein
Aasteen mein jaane kya chupaye rakha hain

Ek titli mili thi humein tasavvur ke baag mein
Use apni palkon par bithaye rakha hain

Chubte nahin pairon mein ab kaante hayaat ke
Yeh kaalin-e-sukhan jo bichaye rakha hain

Seelan si lagi hain is dil ki deewaron par
Teri tasveeron se use chupaye rakha hain

Koi meheram aisa mila nahin yahaan
Jisne teskin-e-dil ko banaye rakha hain

Humein pata hain unka raaz-e-tabassum
Mere qalaam ko labon pe sajaaye rakha hain

Zindaan

Jiski umeed thi yeh nahin woh Hindustan hain
Haqeeqat aur khwaab mein aaj bhi faasla darmiyan hain

Hum kehte hain jise ke yeh hamara gulistan hain
Aaj kaisa hain manzar iska, kyun yeh itna veeran hain

Gandhi, Bhagat, Tagore, Tilak bas naam reh gaye panno par
Shahidon ki mazaar ko humne banaya qabristan hain

Jo bhi mila humein Sikh, Issai, Hindu ya Musalmaan hain
Woh pata bata ae dost jahan milta Insaan hain

Har kisi ne loota hain jise sone ki chidiya kehte the
Aisa koi na aaya jiska musallam imaan hain

“Saare jahan se achcha” bas misra reh gaya Iqbal
Sirf naara bankar reh gaya “Mera Bharat Mahaan” hain

Siyaasat mein baithe behre kuch sunne ke qaabil nahin
Janta gungi ho jaaye, aisa unka farman hain

Ise azaadi mile, ek arsaa bita gaya
Desh aaj bhi humein lagta ek zindaan hain ?

Khoj

Kab tak phirega dar-ba-dar, kitni thokarein khaayega ?
Jo kismat mein likha hain khud tere pass aayega
Kya dhundti hain teri nazar, sab kuch toh paas hain tere ?
Apni gardan jhuka ke dekh, khud-ba-khud nazar aayega
Woh husn nahin jahaan mein joh tujhe lubha sake
Apne dil ki tamanna tu bas khwaabon mein payega
Karz saare chukta yahin hote hain bashar
Dozakh-o-jannat dono yahin tu payega
Yeh do-chaar nazme lekar Shaoor kitni dur tak jayega
Jab tak peenewale hain, pyaasa pilata jayega

Tajweez

 

Chalo hum tum milkar ek gharonda banaaye
Tinka tinka jodkar ek nasheman sajaaye
Tere chehre ke aangan mein palkon ka jhula lagaye
Aankhein do chilman hain, zulfon ka parda lehraae
Tere bahoon ki purwaaiyaan humko garmiyon mein sehlaae
Tere badan ki chaadar odhkar hum sardiyaan bitaae
Din bhar ke is thake haare ko neend tab aaye
Tere dil ke takiye pe jab sar rakh kar sukoon se so jaye

Umeed

Har chaman umeed ke beej bote hain
Suna hain kaaton mein bhi phool hote hain
Yeh duniya hain iska mizaan ulta hain
Jeetne wale bhi bahut kuch khote hain
Jaane kahaan le chalegi humein yeh arzoo-e-dil
Aankhein jaagti hain khwaab sote hain
Yeh baat baat par kismat ka rona achcha nahin Shaoor
Insaan hain, humse bhi bhool hote hain
