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. !!

Jab Bhi Dil Khol Ke Roye Honge..

Jab bhi dil khol ke roye honge,
log aaraam se soye honge.

Baaz aukaat ba-majboori-e dil,
hum toh kya aap bhi roye honge.

Subah tak dast-e saba ne kya kya,
phool kaanton mein piroye honge.

Woh safeene jinhe toofan na mile,
na-khudaaon ne duboye honge.

Raat bhar hanste hue taaron ne,
un ke aariz bhi bhigoye honge.

Kya ajab hai woh mile bhi hon ‘faraz
hum kisi dhyaan mein khoye honge. !!
