  • Ghazal


gham-e-dil hi gham-e-dauran gham-e-jaanana banta hai


ġham-e-dil hī ġham-e-daurāñ ġham-e-jānāna bantā hai
yahī ġham sher bantā hai yahī afsāna bantā hai

isī se garmī-e-dār-o-rasan hai inqilāboñ meñ
bahāroñ meñ yahī zulf-o-qad-e-jānāna bantā hai

saroñ ke ḳhum surāhī gardanoñ kī jaam zaḳhmoñ ke
muhayyā jab ye ho lete haiñ tab mai-ḳhāna bantā hai

bigaḌtā kyā hai parvāne kā jal kar ḳhaak hone meñ
ki phir parvāne hī kī ḳhaak se parvāna bantā hai

nigāh-e-kam se merī chāk-dāmānī ko mat dekho
hazāroñ hoshyāroñ meñ koī dīvāna bantā hai

ḳharīdā jā nahīñ saktā hai saaqī zarf rindoñ kā
bahut shīshe pighalte haiñ to ik paimāna bantā hai

mire hī donoñ haath aate haiñ kaam un ke sañvarne meñ
dikhātā hai koī ā.īna koī shāna bantā hai

baḌā sarmāya hai sab kuchh luTā denā mohabbat meñ
faqīrāna libās aate haiñ dil shāhāna bantā hai

gham-e-dil hi gham-e-dauran gham-e-jaanana banta hai
yahi gham sher banta hai yahi afsana banta hai

isi se garmi-e-dar-o-rasan hai inqilabon mein
bahaaron mein yahi zulf-o-qad-e-jaanana banta hai

saron ke KHum surahi gardanon ki jam zaKHmon ke
muhayya jab ye ho lete hain tab mai-KHana banta hai

bigaDta kya hai parwane ka jal kar KHak hone mein
ki phir parwane hi ki KHak se parwana banta hai

nigah-e-kam se meri chaak-damani ko mat dekho
hazaron hoshyaron mein koi diwana banta hai

KHarida ja nahin sakta hai saqi zarf rindon ka
bahut shishe pighalte hain to ek paimana banta hai

mere hi donon hath aate hain kaam un ke sanwarne mein
dikhata hai koi aaina koi shana banta hai

baDa sarmaya hai sab kuchh luTa dena mohabbat mein
faqirana libas aate hain dil shahana banta hai
