Yaseen Qudrat

  • Ghazal


karam nahin to sitam hi sahi rawa rakhna


karam nahīñ to sitam hī sahī ravā rakhnā
ta.alluqāt vo jaise bhī hoñ sadā rakhnā

kuchh is tarah kī hidāyat milī hai ab ke mujhe
ki sar pe qahr bhī TūTeñ to dil baḌā rakhnā

na āñsuoñ kī ravāñ nahr aañkh se karnā
ab us kī yaad bhī aa.e to hausla rakhnā

kise milā hai milegā kise murād kā phal
so ġhā.ebāna navāzish kī aas kyā rakhnā

ajab nahīñ ki varūd-e-habīb ho jaa.e
zamāna tañg-nazar hai to dil khulā rakhnā

jo dostī ke liye be-qarār rahtā hai
vo koī chaal na chal jaa.e phir patā rakhnā

sitāra arsh se TūTegā ek farsh kī samt
tum apnā ghar dar-o-dīvār tak sajā rakhnā

vafā-shi.ār bhī qudrat thā rūThne vaalā
ravāyatan bhī na naam is kā bevafā rakhnā

karam nahin to sitam hi sahi rawa rakhna
talluqat wo jaise bhi hon sada rakhna

kuchh is tarah ki hidayat mili hai ab ke mujhe
ki sar pe qahr bhi TuTen to dil baDa rakhna

na aansuon ki rawan nahr aankh se karna
ab us ki yaad bhi aae to hausla rakhna

kise mila hai milega kise murad ka phal
so ghaebana nawazish ki aas kya rakhna

ajab nahin ki warud-e-habib ho jae
zamana tang-nazar hai to dil khula rakhna

jo dosti ke liye be-qarar rahta hai
wo koi chaal na chal jae phir pata rakhna

sitara arsh se TuTega ek farsh ki samt
tum apna ghar dar-o-diwar tak saja rakhna

wafa-shiar bhi qudrat tha ruThne wala
rawayatan bhi na nam is ka bewafa rakhna
