  • Ghazal


kahte hain azal jis ko us se bhi kahin pahle


kahte haiñ azal jis ko us se bhī kahīñ pahle
īmān mohabbat par laa.e the hamīñ pahle

asrār-e-ḳhud-āgāhī dīvāne samajhte haiñ
takmīl-e-junūñ āḳhir merāj-e-yaqīñ pahle

chamkā diyā sajdoñ ne naqsh-e-kaf-e-pā lekin
raushan to na thī itnī ye merī jabīñ pahle

har baar ye rah rah kar hotā hai gumāñ mujh ko
shāyad tire jalvoñ ko dekhā thā kahīñ pahle

ye baat alag Thahrī ab ham ko na pahchāneñ
mahfil meñ magar un kī aa.e the hamīñ pahle

ye rāz-e-mohabbat hai samjhegā zamāna kyā
tum hāsil-e-dīñ āḳhir ġhārat-gar-e-dīñ pahle

is kār-e-numāyāñ ke shāhid haiñ chaman vaale
gulshan meñ bahāroñ ko laa.e the hamīñ pahle

taqdīr kī muḳhtārī 'unvān' musallam hai
hotī hai mohabbat bhī majbūr yahīñ pahle

kahte hain azal jis ko us se bhi kahin pahle
iman mohabbat par lae the hamin pahle

asrar-e-KHud-agahi diwane samajhte hain
takmil-e-junun aaKHir meraj-e-yaqin pahle

chamka diya sajdon ne naqsh-e-kaf-e-pa lekin
raushan to na thi itni ye meri jabin pahle

har bar ye rah rah kar hota hai guman mujh ko
shayad tere jalwon ko dekha tha kahin pahle

ye baat alag Thahri ab hum ko na pahchanen
mahfil mein magar un ki aae the hamin pahle

ye raaz-e-mohabbat hai samjhega zamana kya
tum hasil-e-din aaKHir ghaarat-gar-e-din pahle

is kar-e-numayan ke shahid hain chaman wale
gulshan mein bahaaron ko lae the hamin pahle

taqdir ki muKHtari 'unwan' musallam hai
hoti hai mohabbat bhi majbur yahin pahle
