  • Ghazal


KHwab to KHwab hai tabir badal jati hai


ḳhvāb to ḳhvāb hai ta.abīr badal jaatī hai
dil ke ā.īne meñ tasvīr badal jaatī hai

ab salīboñ pe kahāñ gul-shuda sham.oñ kī qatār
aan kī aan meñ tahrīr badal jaatī hai

sur to badle haiñ na badleñge magar vaqt ke saath
zulm ke haath meñ shamshīr badal jaatī hai

roz bantā hai koī aag ke tīroñ kā hadaf
ret par ḳhuun kī zanjīr badal jaatī hai

dil ke patthar kī lakīreñ to nahīñ miT saktīñ
kashish-e-zulf-e-girah-gīr badal jaatī hai

tinkā tinkā hai qafas bhī to nasheman kī tarah
haañ faqat hasrat-e-tāmīr badal jaatī hai

in havāoñ meñ ho dil kis kā nishāna 'tanvīr'
jab bhī dekho ravish-e-tīr badal jaatī hai

KHwab to KHwab hai tabir badal jati hai
dil ke aaine mein taswir badal jati hai

ab salibon pe kahan gul-shuda shamon ki qatar
aan ki aan mein tahrir badal jati hai

sur to badle hain na badlenge magar waqt ke sath
zulm ke hath mein shamshir badal jati hai

roz banta hai koi aag ke tiron ka hadaf
ret par KHun ki zanjir badal jati hai

dil ke patthar ki lakiren to nahin miT saktin
kashish-e-zulf-e-girah-gir badal jati hai

tinka tinka hai qafas bhi to nasheman ki tarah
han faqat hasrat-e-tamir badal jati hai

in hawaon mein ho dil kis ka nishana 'tanwir'
jab bhi dekho rawish-e-tir badal jati hai
