alaw

MORE BY Sahar Ansari

    ham ajnabī the musāfir the ḳhāna-vīrāñ the

    aur is alaav ke raqsāñ hinā.ī bātoñ ne

    bulā liyā hameñ apne hasīñ ishāroñ se

    to is raushnī-e-ahmarīñ tābish meñ

    ḳhud apne aap ko ik dūsre se pahchānā

    ki ham vo ḳhāna-badoshān-e-zīst haiñ jin ko

    azal se apne jaise musāfiroñ talāsh

    kiye hue hai inhī dasht-o-dar meñ sar-gardāñ

    hamārī apnī sadā ajnabī thī apne liye

    diloñ ne pahle-pahal zer-e-lab kahā ham se

    ki ahl-e-zarf-o-ġharībān-e-shahr-e-ehsāsāt

    taras rahe haiñ suḳhan-hā-e-guftanī ke liye

    aur is alaav ke sho.aloñ ne ham se bāteñ kiiñ

    hamārī guñg zabānoñ ko phir zabāneñ diiñ

    aur apnī apnī sunā.īñ kahāniyāñ ham ne

    kahāniyāñ jo haqīqat meñ ek jaisī thiiñ

    phir is alaav ne ham se kahā ki dīvāno

    vo shai jo shoa.la-fishāñ hai tumhāre sīnoñ meñ

    usī ko ziist raushan alaav kahte haiñ

    yahī alaav hai jis ne muhīb rātoñ meñ

    shu.ūr-e-sho.ala-tarāzī atā kiyā tum ko

    isī alaav se ubhrā hai aarzū fusūñ

    isī alaav se sīkhā hai tum ne ism-e-junūñ

    aur is ke ba.ad mujhe yaad hai ki ham sab ne

    ye ek ahd kiyā thā isī alaav ke gird

    ki is aag meñ ḳhāshāk-e-ġham jalā.eñge

    aur is alaav ko apnā ḳhudā banā.eñge

    hum ajnabi the musafir the KHana-viran the

    aur is alaw ke raqsan hinai baaton ne

    bula liya hamein apne hasin ishaaron se

    to is ki raushni-e-ahmarin ki tabish mein

    KHud apne aap ko ek dusre se pahchana

    ki hum wo KHana-badoshan-e-zist hain jin ko

    azal se apne hi jaise musafiron ki talash

    kiye hue hai inhi dasht-o-dar mein sar-gardan

    hamari apni sada ajnabi thi apne liye

    dilon ne pahle-pahal zer-e-lab kaha hum se

    ki ahl-e-zarf-o-ghariban-e-shahr-e-ehsasat

    taras rahe hain suKHan-ha-e-guftani ke liye

    aur is alaw ke shoalon ne hum se baaten kin

    hamari gung zabanon ko phir zabanen din

    aur apni apni sunain kahaniyan hum ne

    kahaniyan jo haqiqat mein ek jaisi thin

    phir is alaw ne hum se kaha ki diwano

    wo shai jo shoala-fishan hai tumhaare sinon mein

    usi ko zist ka raushan alaw kahte hain

    yahi alaw hai jis ne muhib raaton mein

    shuur-e-shoala-taraazi ata kiya tum ko

    isi alaw se ubhra hai aarzu ka fusun

    isi alaw se sikha hai tum ne ism-e-junun

    aur is ke baad mujhe yaad hai ki hum sab ne

    ye ek ahd kiya tha isi alaw ke gird

    ki is ki aag mein KHashak-e-gham jalaenge

    aur is alaw ko apna KHuda banaenge
