hansi mein haq jata kar ghar-jamai chhin leta hai


hañsī meñ haq jatā kar ghar-jamā.ī chhīn letā hai
mire hisse kī TuuTī chārpā.ī chhīn letā hai

use mauqa.a mile to paa.ī paa.ī chhīn letā hai
yahāñ bhaa.ī kī ḳhushiyāñ us kā bhaa.ī chhīn letā hai

bhalā fursat kise hai jo yahāñ rishtoñ ko pahchāne
ye daur-e-ḳhud-farebī āshnā.ī chhīn letā hai

jahālat meñ vo kāmil hai moallim ban gayā kaise
paḌhātā hai ki bachchoñ kī paḌhā.ī chhīn letā hai

ravā hai us ko har sarqa tavārud ke bahāne se
kabhī nazmeñ kabhī ġhazleñ parā.ī chhīn letā hai

koī qaabū nahīñ chaltā ki us ke husn kā Daaku
kisī bhī pārsā kī pārsā.ī chhīn letā hai

mirā mahbūb natwarlal hai kyā jo mire dil ko
dikhā kar apne hāthoñ kī safā.ī chhīn letā hai

baḌā chālāk hai shāgird se ustād hairāñ haiñ
ġhazal kahte hī vo ban kar qasā.ī chhīn letā hai

ham apnī qaum kā jab chāhte haiñ rahnumā banñā
koī ''dādā'' hamārī rahnumā.ī chhīn letā hai

salāmat merā sarmāya kabhī rahne nahīñ paatā
na chhīne vo to koī x y chhīn letā hai

kamā.ī chhoTe afsar bhī kiyā karte haiñ lākhoñ meñ
magar sab se baḌā afsar malā.ī chhīn letā hai

badan merā ThiThur jaatā hai us kī sard-mehrī se
vo zālim hai mohabbat kī razā.ī chhīn letā hai

buḌhāpe ke liye koī raqam jab bhī bachātā huuñ
to beTā hī use de kar duhā.ī chhīn letā hai

yahī maġhrib kī ḳhūbī hai yahī faizān hai us kā
burā.ī baañT detā hai bhalā.ī chhīn letā hai

nikalne hī nahīñ detā kisī ko apne phande se
dimāġh o dil se tadbīr-e-rihā.ī chhīn letā hai

'zafar' tum vaqt se Darte raho is par nazar rakkho
ye dil-bar se bhī us kī dilrubā.ī chhīn letā hai

hansi mein haq jata kar ghar-jamai chhin leta hai
mere hisse ki TuTi chaarpai chhin leta hai

use mauqa mile to pai pai chhin leta hai
yahan bhai ki KHushiyan us ka bhai chhin leta hai

bhala fursat kise hai jo yahan rishton ko pahchane
ye daur-e-KHud-farebi aashnai chhin leta hai

jahaalat mein wo kaamil hai moallim ban gaya kaise
paDhata hai ki bachchon ki paDhai chhin leta hai

rawa hai us ko har sarqa tawarud ke bahane se
kabhi nazmen kabhi ghazlen parai chhin leta hai

koi qabu nahin chalta ki us ke husn ka Daku
kisi bhi parsa ki parsai chhin leta hai

mera mahbub natwarlal hai kya jo mere dil ko
dikha kar apne hathon ki safai chhin leta hai

baDa chaalak hai shagird se ustad hairan hain
ghazal kahte hi wo ban kar qasai chhin leta hai

hum apni qaum ka jab chahte hain rahnuma banna
koi dada hamari rahnumai chhin leta hai

salamat mera sarmaya kabhi rahne nahin pata
na chhine wo to koi x y chhin leta hai

kamai chhoTe afsar bhi kiya karte hain lakhon mein
magar sab se baDa afsar malai chhin leta hai

badan mera ThiThur jata hai us ki sard-mehri se
wo zalim hai mohabbat ki razai chhin leta hai

buDhape ke liye koi raqam jab bhi bachata hun
to beTa hi use de kar duhai chhin leta hai

yahi maghrib ki KHubi hai yahi faizan hai us ka
burai banT deta hai bhalai chhin leta hai

nikalne hi nahin deta kisi ko apne phande se
dimagh o dil se tadbir-e-rihai chhin leta hai

'zafar' tum waqt se Darte raho is par nazar rakkho
ye dil-bar se bhi us ki dilrubai chhin leta hai
