  • Ghazal


ek qabile se hain lekin rang-o-naqsha aur hai


ik qabīle se haiñ lekin rañg-o-naqsha aur hai
aur hai kāñToñ kī duniyā gul kī duniyā aur hai

ishtirāk-e-fikr ho kaise hamāre darmiyāñ
terī ḳhvāhish aur hai merī tamannā aur hai

aur hī manzar hai duniyā kā sar-e-tūr-e-nazar
chashm-e-dil ke sāmne lekin tamāshā aur hai

aarzū ke bahr-o-dariyā kī kahānī kyā kahūñ
is kā sāhil aur hai is kā kinārā aur hai

dekhnā tūfān meñ ghir kar na rah jaa.e kahīñ
nāḳhudā ye ārzuoñ kā safīna aur hai

ab badalnā hī paḌegā ye tarīq-e-zindagī
ab mirī jaañ sūrat-e-hālāt-e-duniyā aur hai

dushmanoñ kā haath is meñ hai na yāroñ kā qusūr
inqitā-e-dostī kā shāḳhsāna aur hai

zindagī ke moḌ par 'shāhid' mileñ phir kis tarah
us kā rasta muḳhtalif hai merā rasta aur hai

ek qabile se hain lekin rang-o-naqsha aur hai
aur hai kanTon ki duniya gul ki duniya aur hai

ishtirak-e-fikr ho kaise hamare darmiyan
teri KHwahish aur hai meri tamanna aur hai

aur hi manzar hai duniya ka sar-e-tur-e-nazar
chashm-e-dil ke samne lekin tamasha aur hai

aarzu ke bahr-o-dariya ki kahani kya kahun
is ka sahil aur hai is ka kinara aur hai

dekhna tufan mein ghir kar na rah jae kahin
naKHuda ye aarzuon ka safina aur hai

ab badalna hi paDega ye tariq-e-zindagi
ab meri jaan surat-e-haalat-e-duniya aur hai

dushmanon ka hath is mein hai na yaron ka qusur
inqita-e-dosti ka shaKHsana aur hai

zindagi ke moD par 'shahid' milen phir kis tarah
us ka rasta muKHtalif hai mera rasta aur hai
