  • Ghazal


jo sun kar lagi zer-e-lab muskurane


jo sun kar lagī zer-e-lab muskurāne
ye kyā kah diyā thā kalī se sabā ne

mire sher anmol la.al-o-gohar haiñ
luTā.e tire ġham ne kyā kyā ḳhazāne

shafaq khil uThī champa.ī ārizoñ par
nikhārā tire rañg-e-ruḳh ko hayā ne

rahā hai vahī dil kā ehsās-e-ulfat
badalte rahe laakh karvaT zamāne

mohabbat kā un ko yaqīñ aa chalā hai
haqīqat bane jā rahe haiñ fasāne

jhijhak kar kisī ne churā.īñ jo nazreñ
charāġh-e-tamannā lagā jhilmilāne

kabhī ye bhī sochā hai ai hañsne vaalo
agar paḌ ga.e tum ko aañsū bahāne

vo tūfān bād-e-muḳhālif kahāñ hai
jo uTThā thā ai 'naqsh' mujh ko miTāne

jo sun kar lagi zer-e-lab muskurane
ye kya kah diya tha kali se saba ne

mere sher anmol lal-o-gohar hain
luTae tere gham ne kya kya KHazane

shafaq khil uThi champai aarizon par
nikhaara tere rang-e-ruKH ko haya ne

raha hai wahi dil ka ehsas-e-ulfat
badalte rahe lakh karwaT zamane

mohabbat ka un ko yaqin aa chala hai
haqiqat bane ja rahe hain fasane

jhijhak kar kisi ne churain jo nazren
charagh-e-tamanna laga jhilmilane

kabhi ye bhi socha hai ai hansne walo
agar paD gae tum ko aansu bahane

wo tufan baad-e-muKHalif kahan hai
jo uTTha tha ai 'naqsh' mujh ko miTane
