  • Ghazal


ab wo kahte hain muddaa kahiye


ab vo kahte haiñ mudda.ā kahiye
sochtā huuñ ki 'naqsh' kyā kahiye

zindagī zindagī se ruuTh ga.ī
haa.e ab kis ko āshnā kahiye

hai taġhāful kā kyuuñ gila un se
āh-e-sozāñ ko nā-rasā kahiye

apnī kashtī to Duub hī jaatī
azm-e-mohkam ko nāḳhudā kahiye

thartharāhaT hayā kī us ruḳh par
raqs-e-nairañgī-e-sabā kahiye

khoī khoī haiñ dhaḌkaneñ dil kī
phir mohabbat kī ibtidā kahiye

ittifāqan ye aap kā milnā
ek rañgīn hādsa kahiye

nā-shanās-e-alam ho jo hastī
sach to ye hai ki be-mazā kahiye

dushman-e-jāñ to dushman-e-jāñ hai
ġhamgusāroñ ko 'naqsh' kyā kahiye

ab wo kahte hain muddaa kahiye
sochta hun ki 'naqsh' kya kahiye

zindagi zindagi se ruTh gai
hae ab kis ko aashna kahiye

hai taghaful ka kyun gila un se
aah-e-sozan ko na-rasa kahiye

apni kashti to Dub hi jati
azm-e-mohkam ko naKHuda kahiye

thartharahaT haya ki us ruKH par
raqs-e-nairangi-e-saba kahiye

khoi khoi hain dhaDkanen dil ki
phir mohabbat ki ibtida kahiye

ittifaqan ye aap ka milna
ek rangin hadsa kahiye

na-shanas-e-alam ho jo hasti
sach to ye hai ki be-maza kahiye

dushman-e-jaan to dushman-e-jaan hai
ghamgusaron ko 'naqsh' kya kahiye
