Barson Ke Baad Dekha Ek Shakhs Dilruba Sa ..

Barson ke baad dekha ek shakhs dilruba sa
ab zehan mein nahin hai, par naam tha bhala sa.

Abro khinche khinche se, aankhen jhuki jhuki si
baaten ruki ruki si, lehja thaka thaka sa.

Alfaaz the ki jugnu aawaz ke safar mein
ban jaaye jungalon mein jis tarah raasta sa.

Khwaabon mein khwaab uske, yaadon mein yaad uski
neendon mein ghul gya ho jaise ki rat-jaga sa.

Pehle bhi log aaye kitne hi zindagi mein
woh har tarah se lekin auron se tha judaa sa.

Kuchh ye ki muddaton se hum bhi nahin the roye
kuchh zehar mein ghula tha ahbaab ka dilasa.

Phir yun hua ki saawan aankhon men aa base the
phir yun hua ki jaise dil bhi tha aablaa sa.

Ab sach kahen toh yaaro hum ko khabar nahin thi
ban jayega qayaamat ek waaqiya zara sa.

Tewar the be’rukhi ke, andaaz dosti ka
woh ajnabi tha lekin lagta tha aashna sa.

Hum dasht the ki dariya, hum zehar the ki amrit
naa’haq the zaam hum ko, jab woh nahin tha pyaasa.

Humne bhi usko dekha kal shaam ittefaaqan
apna bhi haal hai ab logo ‘Faraz’ ka sa .!!

Woh Dushman-e-Jaan, Jaan Se Pyara Bhi Kabhi Tha..

Woh dushman-e jaan, jaan se pyara bhi kabhi tha
ab kis se kahen koi humara bhi kabhi tha.

Utra hai ragg-o-pai mein toh dil kat sa gaya hai,
ye zehar-e judaai ki gawaara bhi kabhi tha.

Har dost jahan abr-e gurezaan ki tarah hai,
ye shehar kabhi shehar humara bhi kabhi tha.

Titli ke taaqub mein koi phool sa bachcha,
aisa hi koi khwaab humara bhi kabhi tha.

Ab agle zamane ke milen log toh puchhen,
jo haal humara hai tumhara bhi kabhi tha.

Har bazm mein hum ne usey afsurda hi dekha,
kahte hain ‘faraz kabhi anjuman-aara bhi tha. !!

Har Ek Baat Na Kyon Zehar Si Humari Lage..

Har ek baat na kyon zehar si humari lage,
ki hum ko dast-e zamana se zakhm kaari lage.

Udaasiyan hon musalsal toh dil nahin rota,
kabhi kabhi ho toh ye kaifiyat bhi pyaari lage.

Bazaahir ek hi shab hai firaaq-e yaar magar,
koi guzaarne baithe toh umar saari lage.

Ilaaj iss dil-e dard-aashna ka kya kijiye,
ki teer ban ke jise harf-e ghumgusaari lage.

Humare paas bhi baitho bas itna chaahte hain,
humare saath tabiyat agar tumhari lage.

‘Faraz tere ghum ka khyaal hai warna,
ye kya zaroor woh soorat sabhi ko pyaari lage. !!

Iss Se Pehle Ki Bewafa Ho Jayen..

Iss se pehle ki bewafa ho jayen,
kyon na aye dost hum judaa ho jayen.

Tu bhi heere se ban gaya patthar,
hum bhi kal jaane kya se kya ho jayen.

Tu ki yakta tha beshumaar hua,
hum bhi tooten toh ja-ba-jaa ho jayen.

Hum bhi majbooriyon ka uzr karen,
phir kahin aur mubtila ho jayen.

Hum agar manzilein na ban payen,
manzilon tak ka raasta ho jayen.

Der se soch mein hain parwaane,
raakh ho jayen ya hawa ho jayen.

Ishq bhi khel hai naseebon ka,
khaak ho jayen keemiya ho jayen.

Ab ke gar tu mile toh hum tujh se,
aise liptein teri qabaa ho jayen.

Bandagi hum ne chhod di hai ‘faraz
kya karen log jab khuda ho jayen. !!

Hum Toh Khush The Ki Chalo Dil Ka Junoon Kuchh Kam Hai..

Hum toh khush the ki chalo dil ka junoon kuchh kam hai,
ab jo aaraam bahut hai toh sukoon kuchh kam hai.

Rang-e girya ne dikhayi nahin agli si bahaar,
ab ke lagta hai ki aamezish-e khoon kuchh kam hai.

Ab tera hijr musalsal hai toh ye bhed khula,
ghum-e dil se ghum-e duniya ka fusoon kuchh kam hai.

Uss ne dukh saare zamaane ka mujhe bakhs diya,
phir bhi laalach ka taqaaza hai kahun kuchh kam hai.

Raah-e duniya se nahin dil ki guzargaah se aa,
faasla garche zyada hai pe yun kuchh kam hai.

Tune dekha hi nahin mujh ko bhale waqton mein,
ye kharaabi ki main jis haal mein hun kuchh kam hai.

Aag hi aag mere qarya-e tann mein hai ‘faraz
phir bhi lagta hai abhi soz-e daroon kuchh kam hai. !!

Dil-girafta Hi Sahi Bazm Saja Li Jaaye..

Dil-girafta hi sahi bazm saja li jaaye,
yaad-e janaa se koi shaam na khaali jaaye.

Rafta rafta yahi zindaan mein badal jaate hain,
ab kisi shehar ki buniyaad na daali jaaye.

Mushaf-e rukh hai kisi ka bayaaz-e haafiz,
aise chehre se kabhi faal nikaali jaaye.

Woh murawwat se mila hai toh jhuka dun gardan,
mere dushman ka koi waar na khaali jaaye.

Be-nawa shehar ka saaya hai mere dil pe ‘faraz
kis tarah se meri aashufta-khyaali jaaye. !!

Dost Ban Kar Bhi Nahin Saath Nibhaane Wala..

Dost ban kar bhi nahin saath nibhaane wala,
wahi andaaz hai zaalim ka zamane wala.

Ab usey log samajhte hain giraftaar mera,
sakht naadim hai mujhe daam mein laane wala.

Subah-dam chhod gaya nikhat-e gul ki soorat,
raat ko ghuncha-e dil mein simat aane wala.

Kya kahein kitne maraasim the humare uss se,
woh jo ek shakhs hai munh pher ke jaane wala.

Tere hote hue aa jaati thi sari duniya,
aaj tanha hun toh koi nahin aane wala.

Muntazir kis ka hun tooti hui dehleej pe main,
kaun aayega yahan, kaun hai aane wala.

Kya khabar thi jo meri jaan mein ghulaa hai itna,
hai wahi mujh ko sar-e daar bhi laane wala.

Maine dekha hai bahaaron mein chaman ko jalte,
hai koi khwaab ki tabeer batane wala?

Tum takalluf ko bhi ikhlaas samjhte ho ‘faraz
dost hota nahin har haath milaane wala. !!
