Mirza Ghalib

kisee ko de ke dil koee nawaa_sanj-e-fuGHaaN kyoN ho ?
na ho jab dil hee seene meiN to fir muNh meiN zubaaN kyoN ho ?

woh apnee KHoo na choDenge, ham apnee waz'a kyoN badleiN ?
subak_sar banke kya poocheiN ki ham se sar_giraaN kyoN ho ?

kiya GHam_KHwaar ne ruswa, lage aag is muhabbat ko
na laaye taab jo GHam ki, woh mera raazdaaN kyoN ho ?

wafa kaisee ? kahaaN ka ishq ? jab sar phoDna THehra
to fir 'ei sang_dil tera hee sang-e-aastaaN kyoN ho ?

qafas meiN mujh se roodaad-e-chaman kehte na Dar hamdam
giree hai jis pe kal bijlee woh mera aashiyaaN kyoN ho ?

ye kah sakte ho "ham dil meiN naheeN haiN" par ye batlaao
ki jab dil meiN tumhee-tum ho to aaNkho se nihaaN kyoN ho ?

GHalat hai jazba-e-dil ka shikwa, dekho juRm kiska hai
na khiNcho gar tum apne ko kashaakash darmiyaaN kyoN ho ?

ye fitna aadmee ki KHaana_weeraanee ko kya kam hai ?
hue tum dost jiske, dushman uska aasmaaN kyoN ho ?

yahee hai aazmaana to sataana kis ko kehte haiN ?
`adoo ke ho liye jab tum to mera imtihaaN kyoN ho ?

kaha tumne ki "kyoN ho GHair ke milne meiN ruswaaee ?"
baja kehte ho, sach kehte ho, fir kahiyo ki "haaN kyoN ho ?"

nikaala chaahata hai kaam kya taa'anoN se too 'GHalib'
tere be_mehar kehne se wo tujh par meharabaaN kyoN ho ?

jaur se baaz aaye par baaz aayaiN kya ?

jaur se baaz aaye par baaz aayaiN kya ? 
kehte haiN, ham tumko muNh dikhlayaiN kya ? 

raat din gardish meiN haiN saat aasmaaN 
ho rahega kuchch-na-kuchch ghabraayaiN kya ? 

laag ho to usko ham samjaiN lagaav 
jab na ho kuchch bhee, to dhoka khayaiN kya ? 

ho liye kyoN naamaabar ke saath-saath ? 
yaarab ! apne KHat ko ham pahooNchaayaiN kya ? 

mauj-e-KHooN sar se guzar hee kyoN na jaaye 
aastaan-e-yaar se uTh jaayaiN kya ? 

umr bhar dekha kiye marne kee raah 
mar gaye par dekhiye dikhlaayaiN kya?

poochchte haiN woh ki 'GHalib' kaun hai ? 
koee batlao ki ham batlaayaiN kya ?

rone se aur ishq meiN be_baak ho gaye...

Rone se aur ishq meiN be_baak ho gaye 
dhoye gaye ham 'eise ki bas paak ho gaye 

sarf-e-baha-e-mai hue aalaat-e-maikashee 
the; ye hee do hisaab, so yoN paak ho gaye 

ruswa-e-dahar go hue aawaargee se tum 
baare tabeeyatoN ke to chaalaak ho gaye 

kehta hai kaun naala-e-bulbul ko be_asar 
parde meiN gul ke laakh jigar chaak ho gaye 

pooche hai kya wujood-o-adam 'ehl-e-shauq ka 
aap apnee aag se KHas-o-KHaashaak ho gaye 

karne gaye the; usse taGHaaful ka ham gila 
kee ek hee nigaah ki bas KHaak ho gaye 

is DHang se uTHaayee kal usne 'Asad' ki laash 
dushman bhee jisko dekhke GHamnaak ho gaye

baazeechaa-e-atfaal hai duniya mere aage
hota hai shab-o-roz tamaasha mere aage

ik khel hai auraNg-e-sulemaaN mere nazdeek
ik baat hai 'eijaz-e-maseeha mere aage

juz naam naheeN soorat-e-aalam mujhe manzoor
juz waham naheeN hastee-e-ashiya mere aage

hota hai nihaaN gard meiN sehara mere hote
ghisata hai jabeeN KHaak pe dariya mere aage

mat pooch ke kya haal hai mera tere peeche ?
too dekh ke kya rang tera mere aage

sach kahte ho, KHudbeen-o-KHud_aaraa na kyoN hooN ?
baiTha hai but-e-aainaa_seemaa mere aage

fir dekhiye andaaz-e-gul_afshaani-e-guftaar
rakh de koee paimaanaa-o-sahba mere aage

nafrat ka gumaaN guzare hai, maiN rashk se guzaraa
kyoN kar kahooN, lo naam na uska mere aage

imaaN mujhe roke hai jo khiNche hai mujhe kufr
ka'aba mere peeche hai kaleesa mere aage

aashiq hooN, pe maashooq_farebee hai mera kaam
majnooN ko bura kehti hai laila mere aage

KHush hote haiN par wasl meiN yoN mar naheeN jaate
aayee shab-e-hijaraaN ki tamanna mere aage

hai mauj_zan ik qulzum-e-KHooN, kaash, yahee ho
aata hai abhee dekhiye kya-kya mere aage

go haath ko jumbish naheeN aaNhoN meiN to dam hai
rehne do abhee saaGHar-o-meena mere aage

ham_pesha-o-ham_masharb-o-ham_raaz hai mera
'GHalib' ko bura kyoN kaho achchaa mere aage !
diyaa hai dil agar usko, bashar hai kya kahiye ?
huwa raqeeb to ho, naamaabar hai, kya kahiye ?

yeh zid, ki aaj na aave aur aaye bin na rahe
qaza se shikwa hamaiN kis qadar hai kya kahiye ?

rahe haiN yoN gah-o-be_gah ki koo-e-dost ko ab
agar na kahiye ki dushman ka ghar hai, kya kahiye ?

zah-e-karishma ki yoN de rakhaa hai hamko fareb
ki bin kahe hee unhaiN sab KHabar hai, kya kahiye?
samajh ke karte haiN baazaar meiN woh pursish-e-haal
ki yeh kahe ki sar-e-rehguzar hai, kya kahiye ?

tumhaiN naheeN hai sar-e-rishtaa-e-wafa ka KHayaal
hamaare haath meiN kuchch hai, magar hai kya, kahiye ?
unhaiN sawaal pe zoam-e-junooN hai, kyoN laDiye ?
hame jawaab se qata'a-e-nazar hai, kya kahiye ?

hasad sazaa-e-kamaal-e-suKHan hai, kya keeje
sitam, bahaa-e-mata'a-e-hunar hai, kya kahiye ?

kaha hai kisne ki 'GHalib' buraa naheeN lekin
siwaay iske ki aashuftaa_sar hai kya kahiye?

fir mujhe deeda-e-tar yaad aaya ...

fir mujhe deeda-e-tar yaad aaya 
dil jigar tashna-e-fariyaad aaya 

dam liya tha na qayaamat ne hanoz 
fir tera waqt-e-safar yaad aaya 

saadgee haay tamanna, yaanee 
fir wo nai_rang-e-nazar yaad aaya 

uzr-e-waamaaNdagee 'ei hasarat-e-dil 
naala karta tha jigar yaad aaya 

zindgee yoN bhee guzar hi jaatee 
kyoN tera raahguzar yaad aaya ?

kya hee rizwaaN se laDaayee hogee 
ghar tera KHuld meiN gar yaad aaya 

aah woh jurat-e-fariyaad kahaaN 
dil se tang aake jigar yaad aaya 

fir tere kooche ko jaata hai KHayaal 
dil-e-gumgashta magar yaad aaya 

koee weeraanee-see-weeraanee hai 
dasht ko dekh ke ghar yaad aaya 

maiNne majnooN pe laDakpan meiN 'Asad' 
sang uTHaaya tha ki sar yaad aaya

GHair leiN mehfil meiN bose jaam ke

dil ko aaNkhoN ne fasaaya kya magar
ye bhee halqe haiN tumhaare daam ke
shaah ke haiN GHusl-e-sehat ko KHabar
dekhiye kab din fireiN hammaam ke
ishq ne 'GHalib' nikamma kar diya
warna ham bhee aadmee the; kaam ke

har ek baat pe kehte ho ...

har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ke 'too kya hai' ? 
tumheeN kaho ke yeh andaaz-e-guftgoo kya hai ? 

na shole meiN yeh karishma na barq meiN yeh ada 
koee batao ki woh shoKH-e-tund_KHoo kya hai ? 

yeh rashk hai ki wo hota hai ham_suKHan tumse 
wagarna KHauf-e-bad_aamozi-e-adoo kya hai ? 

chipak raha hai badan par lahoo se pairaahan 
hamaaree jeb ko ab haajat-e-rafoo kya hai ? 

jalaa hai jicm jahaaN dil bhee jal gaya hoga 
kuredate ho jo ab raakh, justjoo kya hai ? 

ragoN meiN dauDte firne ke ham naheeN qaayal 
jab aaNkh hee se na Tapka to fir lahoo kya hai ?

woh cheez jiske liye hamko ho bahisht azeez 
siwaay baada-e-gul_faam-e-mushkaboo kya hai ? 

piyooN sharaab agar KHum bhee dekh looN do chaar 
yeh sheesha-o-qadah-o-kooza-o-suboo kya hai ? 

rahee na taaqat-e-guftaar, aur agar ho bhee 
to kis ummeed pe kahiye ke aarzoo kya hai ? 

bana hai shaah ka musaahib, fire hai itaraata 
wagarna shehar meiN 'GHalib' kee aabroo kya hai ?
husn-e-mah, garche ba_haNgaam-e-kamaal achcha hai 
us'se mera mah-e-KHursheed-e-jamaal achcha hai 

bosa dete naheeN aur dil pe hai har lahja nigaah 
jee meiN kehte haiN, muft aaye to maal achcha hai 

aur baazaar se le aaye agar TooT gaya 
saaGHar-e-jam se mera jaam-e-sifaal achcha hai 

be_talab daiN to maza usme siwa milta hai 
woh gada jisko na ho KHoo-e-sawaal achcha hai 

unke dekhe se jo aa jaatee hai muNh par raunaq 
woh samajhte haiN ke beemaar ka haal achcha hai

dekhiye paate haiN ushshaaq butoN se kya faiz ? 
ik birahaman ne kaha hai, ke yeh saal achcha hai 

ham_suKHan teshe ne farhaad ko sheereeN se kiya 
jis tarah ka bhee kisee meiN ho kamaal achcha hai 

qatra dariya meiN jo mil jaaye to dariya ho jaaye 
kaam achchaa hai woh, jiska ma'aal achcha hai 

KHijr SultaaN ko rakhe KHaaliq-e-akbar sar_sabz 
shaah ke baaGH meiN yeh taaza nihaal achcha hai 

hamko ma'aloom hai jannat ki haqeeqat lekin 
dil ke KHush rakhne ko, 'GHalib' yeh KHayaal achcha hai

jis bazm meiN too naaz se guftaar meiN aave
jaaN kaalbud-e-soorat-e-deewaar meiN aave
saaye kee tarah saath firaiN, sarv-o-sanobar
too iss qad-e-dilkash se jo gulzaar meiN aave
tay naaz-e-giraaN_maaygi-e-ashq baja hai
jab laKHt-e-jigar deeda-e-KHooNbaar meiN aave
de mujhko shikaayat kee ijaazat ki sitamgar
kuchch tujhko maza bhee mere aazaar meiN aave
uss chashm-e-fusooN_gar ka agar paaye ishaara
tootee kee tarah aaeena guftaar meiN aave
kaatoN kee zabaaN sookh gayee pyaas se, yaarab !
ik aablaa_paa waadee-e-pur_KHaar meiN aave
mar jaaooN na kyoN rashk se jab woh tan-e-naazuk
aaGHosh-e-KHaam-e-halqa-e-zunnaar meiN aave
GHaarat_gar-e-naamoos na ho gar hawas-e-zar
kyoN shaahid-e-gul baaGH se baazaar meiN aave
tab chaak-e-girebaaN ka maza hai, dil-e-naadaaN
jab ik nafas uljha huaa har taar meiN aave
aatish_kada hai seena mera raaz-e-nihaaN se
de waaye ! agar maa'ariz-e-izhaar meiN aave
gaNjeena-e-maa'anee ka talism usko samajhiye
jo lafz ki 'GHalib' mere ash'aar meiN aave
