  • Ghazal


main teri nigah mein ek chaman tha


maiñ terī nigah meñ ik chaman thā
ye husn-e-nazar thā husn-e-zan thā

pakkā thā jo man kā ḳhasta-tan thā
vo qais kahāñ thā kohkan thā

maḳhmūr sī ho rahī thiiñ āñkheñ
ruj.hān-e-gunāh zau-fagan thā

duniyā maqtal banī thī aur dil
apne hī ḳhayāl meñ magan thā

ġham-ḳhāna ho ke rah gayā hai
vo lafz jo mābad-e-suḳhan thā

uḌtā phirtā ġhubār har-sū
ye dasht-e-ravāñ kabhī chaman thā

kahne ko to mar chukī thī ḳhvāhish
baaqī magar us kā bāñkpan thā

fankār the ham na the kafan-kash
zindoñ ke liye hamārā fan thā

kyā ruuh damak damak uThī thī
kundan sā ḳhayāl kā badan thā

go hoñT 'razā' ke sil ga.e the
ḳhāme kī zabāñ se naġhma-zan thā

main teri nigah mein ek chaman tha
ye husn-e-nazar tha husn-e-zan tha

pakka tha jo man ka KHasta-tan tha
wo qais kahan tha kohkan tha

maKHmur si ho rahi thin aankhen
rujhan-e-gunah zau-fagan tha

duniya maqtal bani thi aur dil
apne hi KHayal mein magan tha

gham-KHana ho ke rah gaya hai
wo lafz jo mabad-e-suKHan tha

uDta phirta ghubar har-su
ye dasht-e-rawan kabhi chaman tha

kahne ko to mar chuki thi KHwahish
baqi magar us ka bankpan tha

fankar the hum na the kafan-kash
zindon ke liye hamara fan tha

kya ruh damak damak uThi thi
kundan sa KHayal ka badan tha

go honT 'raza' ke sil gae the
KHame ki zaban se naghma-zan tha
