agar is khel mein ab wo bhi shamil hone wala hai


agar is khel meñ ab vo bhī shāmil hone vaalā hai
to apnā kaam pahle se bhī mushkil hone vaalā hai

havā shāḳhoñ meñ rukne aur ulajhne ko hai is lamhe
guzarte bādaloñ meñ chāñd haa.il hone vaalā hai

asar ab aur kyā honā thā us jān-e-taġhāful par
jo pahle besh o kam thā vo bhī zaa.il hone vaalā hai

ziyāda naaz ab kyā kījiye josh-e-javānī par
ki ye tūfāñ bhī rafta rafta sāhil hone vaalā hai

hamīñ se koī koshish ho na paa.ī kārgar varna
har ik nāqis yahāñ kā pīr-e-kāmil hone vaalā hai

haqīqat meñ bahut kuchh khone vaale haiñ ye sāda-dil
jo ye samjhe hue haiñ un ko hāsil hone vaalā hai

hamāre hāl-mastoñ ko ḳhabar hone se pahle hī
yahāñ par aur hī kuchh rañg-e-mahfil hone vaalā hai

chalo is marhale par hī koī tadbīr kar dekho
vagarna shahr meñ paanī to dāḳhil hone vaalā hai

'zafar' kuchh aur hī ab sho.abada dikhlā.iye varna
ye dāvā-e-suḳhan-dānī to bātil hone vaalā hai

agar is khel mein ab wo bhi shamil hone wala hai
to apna kaam pahle se bhi mushkil hone wala hai

hawa shaKHon mein rukne aur ulajhne ko hai is lamhe
guzarte baadalon mein chand hail hone wala hai

asar ab aur kya hona tha us jaan-e-taghaful par
jo pahle besh o kam tha wo bhi zail hone wala hai

ziyaada naz ab kya kijiye josh-e-jawani par
ki ye tufan bhi rafta rafta sahil hone wala hai

hamin se koi koshish ho na pai kargar warna
har ek naqis yahan ka pir-e-kaamil hone wala hai

haqiqat mein bahut kuchh khone wale hain ye sada-dil
jo ye samjhe hue hain un ko hasil hone wala hai

hamare haal-maston ko KHabar hone se pahle hi
yahan par aur hi kuchh rang-e-mahfil hone wala hai

chalo is marhale par hi koi tadbir kar dekho
wagarna shahr mein pani to daKHil hone wala hai

'zafar' kuchh aur hi ab shoabada dikhlaiye warna
ye dawa-e-suKHan-dani to baatil hone wala hai
