Mirza Ghalib

Mirza Ghalib

naqsh fariyaadee hai kiskee Shokhee-e-tehreer ka
kaaGHazee hai pairhan har paikar-e-tasweer ka

kaave-kaave saKHt_jaanee haay tanhaaee na pooch
subah karna shaam ka laana hai joo-e-sheer ka

jazba-e-be_Ikhtiyaar-e-shauq dekha chaahiye
seena-e-shamsheer se baahar hai dam shamsheer ka

aagahee daam-e-shuneedan jis qadar chaahe bichaaye
mudda'a 'anqa hai apne aalam-e-taqreer ka

bus ke hooN 'GHalib' aseeree meiN bhee aatish zer-e-pa
moo-e-aatish_deeda hai halqa meree zanjeer ka

fursat-e-kaarobaar

fursat-e-kaarobaar-e-shauq kise?
zauq-e-nazzaraa-e-jamaal kahaaN?

dil to dil wo dimaagh bhee na rahaa
shor-e-sauda-e-Khatt-o-KHaal kahaaN?

thee woh ik shaKHs ke tasavvur se
ab woh raanaai-e-KHayaal kahaaN?

'eisa aasaaN naheeN lahoo rona
dil meiN taaqat jigar meiN haal kahaaN?

hamse *****a qamaar_KHaana-e-ishq
waaN jo jawaiN, girah meiN maal kahaaN?

fikr-e-duniyaaN meiN sar khapaata hooN
maiN kahaaN aur ye wabaal kahaaN?

muzmahil ho gaye quwa'a 'GHalib'
wo anaasir meiN 'eitdaal kahaaN?

Yahhee to hai na

yahhee to hai na sang-o-KHisht dard se bhar na aaye kyoN?

waaN wo GHuroor-e-iz'z-o-naaz yaaN yeh hijaab-e-paas-e-waz'a

jisko ho deen-o-dil 'azeez, uskee galee meiN jaaye kyoN?

'GHalib'-e-KHasta ke baGHair kaun se kaam band haiN?
roiye zaar-zaar kya, keejiye haay-haay kyoN?

Ye na thee hamaaree

Ye na thee hamaaree qismat ke wisaal-e-yaar hota
agar aur jeete rehte yahee intezaar hota

tere waade par jiye ham to ye jaan jhooT jaanaa
ke KHushee se mar na jaate agar 'eitabaar hota

teree naazukee se jaana ki bandha tha 'ehed_booda
kabhee too na toD sakta agar oostuwaar hota

koee mere dil se pooche tere teer-e-neemkash ko
ye KHalish kahaaN se hotee jo jigar ke paar hota

ye kahaaN ki dostee hai ke bane haiN dost naaseh
koee chaarasaaz hota, koee Ghamgusaar hota

rag-e-sang se Tapakta wo lahoo ki fir na thamta
jise GHam samajh rahe ho, ye agar sharaar hota

GHam agarche jaaN_gulis hai, pe kahaaN bachaiN ke dil hai
GHam-e-ishq gar na hota, Gham-e-rozgaar hota

kahooN kis se maiN ke kya hai, shab-e-Gham buree bala hai
mujhe kya bura tha marna ? agar ek baar hota

hue mar ke ham jo ruswa, hue kyoN na Gharq-e-dariya
na kabhee janaaza uThata, na kaheeN mazaar hota

use; kauN dekh sakta ki yagaana hai wo yaktaa
jo dooee ki boo bhee hotee to kaheeN do chaar hota

ye masaail-e-tasawwuf, ye tera bayaaN 'GHalib' !
tujhe ham walee samajhate, jo na baada_KHwaar hota
