  • Ghazal


ek mujassam dard hun ek aah hun


ik mujassam dard huuñ ik aah huuñ
phir bhī zeb-o-zīnat-e-afvāh huuñ

maiñ ne duniyā kī pasand oḌhī nahīñ
kuchh bhī huuñ phir bhī to haq-āgāh huuñ

sadd-e-lahm-o-ustuḳhvāñ hote hue
har nafas ab bhī tire hamrāh huuñ

karb vahshat ġham masā.il ke tufail
aaj tak zinda ba-hamdillāh huuñ

mere naqsh-e-pā se nikle rāste
log phir bhī kahte haiñ gumrāh huuñ

parvarish paatī hai jis se tīrgī
maiñ vahī farzand-e-mehr-o-māh huuñ

mai-kade kī rah se tujh ko pā liyā
log kahte haiñ ki maiñ gumrāh huuñ

ek mujassam dard hun ek aah hun
phir bhi zeb-o-zinat-e-afwah hun

main ne duniya ki pasand oDhi nahin
kuchh bhi hun phir bhi to haq-agah hun

sadd-e-lahm-o-ustuKHwan hote hue
har nafas ab bhi tere hamrah hun

karb wahshat gham masail ke tufail
aaj tak zinda ba-hamdillah hun

mere naqsh-e-pa se nikle raste
log phir bhi kahte hain gumrah hun

parwarish pati hai jis se tirgi
main wahi farzand-e-mehr-o-mah hun

mai-kade ki rah se tujh ko pa liya
log kahte hain ki main gumrah hun
