aahat jo sunai di hai hijr ki shab ki hai0
aandhi ki zad mein sham-e-tamanna jalai jae0
aandhiyan aati thin lekin kabhi aisa na hua0
aankh ki ye ek hasrat thi ki bas puri hui0
aasman kuchh bhi nahin ab tere karne ke liye0
aise hijr ke mausam kab kab aate hain2
ajib saneha mujh par guzar gaya yaro2
aks ko qaid ki parchhain ko zanjir karen0
bahte dariyaon mein pani ki kami dekhna hai0
be-tab hain aur ishq ka dawa nahin hum ko0
bhatak gaya ki manzilon ka wo suragh pa gaya0
bhuli-bisri yaadon ki baraat nahin aai0
buniyaad-e-jahan mein kaji kyun hai0
dam-e-ulfat se chhutti hi nahin0
dayar-e-dil na raha bazm-e-dostan na rahi0
dekh dariya ko ki tughyani mein hai0
dhup ke dasht mein be-saya shajar mein hum the0
dil chiz kya hai aap meri jaan lijiye0
dil mein rakhta hai na palkon pe bithata hai mujhe0
dil mein utregi to puchhegi junun kitna hai0
dil pareshan ho magar aankh mein hairani na ho0
faza-e-mai-kada be-rang lag rahi hai mujhe0
gard ko kuduraton ki dho na pae hum0
guzre the husain ibn-e-ali raat idhar se0
hamari aankh mein naqsha ye kis makan ka hai0
hans raha tha main bahut go waqt wo rone ka tha3
har khwab ke makan ko mismar kar diya hai0
hawa chale waraq-e-arzu palat jae0
hawa ka zor hi kafi bahana hota hai0
hazar bar miti aur paemal hui hai0
hujum-e-dard mila zindagi azab hui0
hum padh rahe the khwab ke purzon ko jod ke0
in aankhon ki masti ke mastane hazaron hain0
jaane kya dekha tha maine khwab mein0
jab bhi milti hai mujhe ajnabi lagti kyun hai2
jagta hun main ek akela duniya soti hai2
jahan main hone ko ai dost yun to sab hoga0
jahan pe teri kami bhi na ho sake mahsus0
jo chahti duniya hai wo mujhse nahin hoga0
juda hue wo log ki jinko sath mein aana tha2
justuju jis ki thi usko to na paya humne2
kab saman dekhenge hum zakhmon ke bhar jaane ka0
kahan tak waqt ke dariya ko hum thahra hua dekhen2
kahne ko to har baat kahi tere muqabil0
karobar-e-shauq mein bas faeda itna hua0
khule jo aankh kabhi didani ye manzar hain0
kis fikr kis khayal mein khoya hua sa hai2
kis kis tarah se mujhko na ruswa kiya gaya2
lakh khurshed sar-e-baam agar hain to rahen0
mabad-e-zist mein but ki misal jade honge0
manzar guzishta shab ke daman mein bhar raha hai0
mashal-e-dard phir ek bar jala li jae0
mom ke jismon wali is makhluq ko ruswa mat karna0
nahin rok sakoge jism ki in parwazon ko0
nashat-e-gham bhi mila ranj-e-shad-mani bhi2
nazar jo koi bhi tujh sa hasin nahin aata0
nikla hai chand shab ki pazirai ke liye0
nisbat rahe tum se sada hazrat nizamuddin-ji0
pahle nahai os mein phir aansuon mein raat0
sabhi ko gham hai samundar ke khushk hone ka0
shadid pyas thi phir bhi chhua na pani ko2
shahr-e-junun mein kal talak jo bhi tha sab badal gaya0
sham-e-dil sham-e-tamanna na jala man bhi ja0
shikwa koi dariya ki rawani se nahin hai0
sine mein jalan aankhon mein tufan sa kyun hai2
siyah raat nahin leti nam dhalne ka0
tamam khalq-e-khuda dekh ke ye hairan hai0
tere siwa bhi koi mujhe yaad aane wala tha0
tere wade ko kabhi jhut nahin samjhunga2
teri sansen mujh tak aate baadal ho jaen0
tilism khatm chalo aah-e-be-asar ka hua0
tu kahan hai tujhse ek nisbat thi meri zat ko0
tujhse bichhde hain to ab kis se milati hai hamein0
ummid se kam chashm-e-kharidar mein aae2
usko kisi ke waste be-tab dekhte0
wo bewafa hai hamesha hi dil dukhata hai0
ye ek shajar ki jis pe na kanta na phul hai0
ye jab hai ki ek khwab se rishta hai hamara2
ye jagah ahl-e-junun ab nahin rahne wali0
ye kya hai mohabbat mein to aisa nahin hota2
ye kya hua ki tabiat sambhalti jati hai0
ye kya jagah hai dosto ye kaun sa dayar hai2
ye qafile yaadon ke kahin kho gae hote0
zakhmon ko rafu kar len dil shad karen phir se0
zamin se ta-ba-falak dhund ki khudai hai0
zindagi jab bhi teri bazm mein lati hai hamein2
zindagi jaisi tawaqqo thi nahin kuchh kam hai2
