  • Ghazal


kuchh baat hi thi aisi ki thame jigar gae


kuchh baat hī thī aisī ki thāme jigar ga.e
ham aur jaate bazm-e-adū meñ magar ga.e

ye to ḳhabar nahīñ ki kahāñ aur kidhar ga.e
lekin yahāñ se duur kuchh ahl-e-safar ga.e

armāñ jo ham ne jam.a kiye the shabāb meñ
piirī meñ vo ḳhudā ko ḳhabar hai kidhar ga.e

rutba buland hai mire dāġhoñ kā is qadar
maiñ huuñ zamīñ pe daaġh mire tā-qamar ga.e

ruḳhsār par hai rañg-e-hayā kā faroġh aaj
bose kā naam maiñ ne liyā vo nikhar ga.e

duniyā bas is se aur zyāda nahīñ hai kuchh
kuchh roz haiñ guzārne aur kuchh guzar ga.e

jaane lagā hai dil kī taraf un kā haath ab
naale shab-e-firāq ke kuchh kaam kar ga.e

hasrat kā ye mazā hai ki nikle nahīñ kabhī
armāñ nahīñ haiñ vo ki shab aa.e sahar ga.e

bas ek zaat hazrat-e-'shaidā' kī hai yahāñ
dehlī se rafta rafta sab ahl-e-hunar ga.e

kuchh baat hi thi aisi ki thame jigar gae
hum aur jate bazm-e-adu mein magar gae

ye to KHabar nahin ki kahan aur kidhar gae
lekin yahan se dur kuchh ahl-e-safar gae

arman jo hum ne jama kiye the shabab mein
piri mein wo KHuda ko KHabar hai kidhar gae

rutba buland hai mere daghon ka is qadar
main hun zamin pe dagh mere ta-qamar gae

ruKHsar par hai rang-e-haya ka farogh aaj
bose ka nam main ne liya wo nikhar gae

duniya bas is se aur zyaada nahin hai kuchh
kuchh roz hain guzarne aur kuchh guzar gae

jaane laga hai dil ki taraf un ka hath ab
nale shab-e-firaq ke kuchh kaam kar gae

hasrat ka ye maza hai ki nikle nahin kabhi
arman nahin hain wo ki shab aae sahar gae

bas ek zat hazrat-e-'shaida' ki hai yahan
dehli se rafta rafta sab ahl-e-hunar gae
