Anokhi Waza Hai Saare Zamaane Se Niraale Hain..

Allama Iqbal Poetry

Anokhi waza hai saare zamaane se niraale hain,
ye aashiq kaun si basti ke yaa rab rehne waale hain.

Ilaaj-e-dard mein bhi dard ki lazzat pe marta hun,
jo the chaalon mein kaante nok-e-sozan se nikaale hain.

Phalaa-phoola rahe yaa rab chaman meri umeedon ka,
jigar ka khoon de de kar ye boote hum ne paale hain.

Rulaati hai mujhe raaton ko khaamoshi sitaaron ki,
niraala ishq hai mera niraale mere naale hain.

Na poochho mujh se lazzat khaanamaan-barbaad rehne ki,
nasheman sainkadon maine bana kar phoonk daale hain.

Umeed-e-hoor ne sab kuchh seekha rakha hai waaiz ko,
ye hazrat dekhne mein seedhe-saadhe bhole-bhaale hain.

Mere ashaar aey ‘iqbal’ kyon pyaare na hon mujh ko,
mere toote hue dil ke ye dard-angez naale hain. !!

Fitrat Ne Na Bakhsha Mujhe Andesha-e-Chaalaak..

Allama Iqbal Poetry

Fitrat ne na bakhsha mujhe andesha-e-chaalaak,
rakhti hai magar taaqat-e-parwaaz meri khaak.

Woh khaak ki hai jis ka junoon saiqal-e-idraak,
woh khaak ki jibreel ki hai jis se qabaa chaak.

Woh khaak ki parwaa-e-nasheman nahin rakhti,
chunti nahin pehna-e-chaman se khaas-o-khaashaak.

Iss khaak ko allaah ne bakhshe hain woh aansoo,
karti hai chamak jin ki sitaaron ko araq-naak. !!

Pareshaan Ho Ke Meri Khaak Aakhir Dil Na Ban Jaaye..

Allama Iqbal Poetry

Pareshaan ho ke meri khaak aakhir dil na ban jaaye,
jo mushkil ab hai yaa rab phir wahi mushkil na ban jaaye.

Na kar dein mujh ko majboor-e-nawa firdaus mein hooren,
mera soz-e-daroon phir garmi-e-mehfil na ban jaaye.

Kabhi chhodi hui manzil bhi yaad aati hai raahi ko,
khatak si hai jo seene mein ghum-e-manzil na ban jaaye.

Banaaya ishq ne dariya-e-naa-paida-karaan mujh ko,
ye meri khud-nigah-daari mera saahil na ban jaaye.

Kahin iss aalam-e-be-rang-o-boo mein bhi talab meri,
wahi afsaana-e-dumbaala-e-mehmil na ban jaaye.

Urooj-e-aadam-e-khaaki se anjum sehme jaate hain,
ki ye toota hua taara mah-e-kaamil na ban jaaye. !!

Aflaak Se Aata Hai Naalon Ka Jawaab Aakhir..

Allama Iqbal Poetry

Aflaak se aata hai naalon ka jawaab aakhir,
karte hain khitaab aakhir uthte hain hijab aakhir.

Ahwsal-e-mohabbat mein kuchh farq nahin aisa,
soz-o-tab-o-taab awwal soz-o-tab-o-taab aakhir.

Main tujh ko batata hun taqdeer-e-umam kya hai,
shamsheer-o-sanaa awwal taaoos-o-rabaab aakhir.

Maikhana-e-europe ke dastoor niraale hain,
laate hain suroor awwal dete hain sharaab akhir.

Kya dabdaba-e-naadir kya shaukat-e-taimoori,
ho jaate hain sab daftar gharq-e-mayy-e-naab aakhir.

Khalwat ki ghadi guzri jalwat ki ghadi aayi,
chhutne ko hai bijli se aagosh-e-sahaab aakhir.

Tha zabt bahut mushkil iss sail-e-maani ka,
keh daale qalandar ne asraar-e-kitaab aakhir. !!

Pompiye – Poem by Gulzar

Gulzar Poem

Pompiye dafan tha sadiyon se jahan
ek tehzeeb thi posheeda wahan
shehar khoda toh tawaarikh ke tukde nikle.

Dheron pathraaye hue waqt ke safhon ko ulat kar dekha
ek bhooli hui tehzeeb ke purze se bichhe the har-soo.
munjamid laave mein akde hue insaanon ke guchchhe the wahan
aag aur laave se ghabra ke jo lipte honge.

Wahi matke, wahi haandi, wahi toote piyaale
honth toote hue, latki hui mitti ki zabaanen har-soo
bhookh uss waqt bhi thi, pyaas bhi thi, pet bhi tha..

Hukmaraanon ke mehal, un ki fasilen, sikke
raaij-ul-waqt jo hathiyaar the aur un ke daste
bediyaan pattharon ki, aahani, pairon ke kade
aur ghulaamon ko jahan baandh ke rakhte the
woh pinjre bhi bahut se nikle.

Ek tehzeeb yahan dafan hai aur uss ke qareeb
ek tehzeeb rawaan hai,
jo mere waqt ki hai.

Hukmaraan bhi hain, mehal bhi hain, faslen bhi hain
jel-khaane bhi hain aur gas ke chamber bhi hain
hiroshima pe kitaaben bhi sajaa rakhi hain
bediyaan, aahani, hathkadiyaan bhi steel ki hain
aur ghulaamon ko bhi aazaadi hai, baandha nahin jaata.

Meri tehzeeb ne kitni taraqqi kar li hai …!

[ Pompiye = a city name, Pompeii

Dhota Hun Jab Main Peene Ko Uss Simtan Ke Paaon..

Mirza Ghalib Poetry

Dhota hun jab main peene ko uss simtan ke paaon,
rakhta hai zid se kheench kar baahar lagan ke paaon.

Di saadagi se jaan padun kohkan ke paaon,
haihaat kyon na toot gaye pirzan ke paaon.

Bhaage the hum bahut so ussi ki sazaa hai ye,
ho kar aseer daabte hain raahzan ke paaon.

Marham ki justaju mein phira hun jo door door,
tan se siwa figaar hain is khasta-tan ke paaon.

Allah re zauq-e-dasht-nawardi ki baad-e-marg,
hilte hain khud-ba-khud mere andar kafan ke paaon.

Hai josh-e-gul bahaar mein yaan tak ki har taraf,
udte hue ulajhte hain murgh-e-chaman ke paaon.

Shab ko kisi ke khwaab mein aaya na ho kahin,
dukhte hain aaj uss but-e-naazuk badan ke paaon.

Ghalib’ mere kalaam mein kyonkar maza na ho,
peeta hun khusro-e-shirin-sukhan ke paaon. !!

Diya Hai Dil Agar Uss Ko Bashar Hai Kya Kahiye..

Mirza Ghalib Poetry

Diya hai dil agar uss ko bashar hai kya kahiye,
hua raqeeb toh ho naamabar hai kya kahiye.

Ye zid ki aaj na aave aur aaye bin na rahe,
qaza se shikwa humein kis qadar hai kya kahiye.

Rahe hai yun gah-o-begah ki ku-e-dost ko ab,
agar na kahiye ki dushman ka ghar hai kya kahiye.

Zahe karishma ki yun de rakha hai hum ko fareb,
ki bin kahe hi unhen sab khabar hai kya kahiye.

Samajh ke karte hain baazaar mein woh pursish-e-haal,
ki ye kahe ki sar-e-rahguzar hai kya kahiye.

Tumhen nahin hai sar-e-rishta-e-wafa ka khyaal,
humare haath mein kuchh hai magar hai kya kahiye.

Unhen sawaal pe zom-e-junoon hai kyon ladiye,
humein jawaab se qat-e-nazar hai kya kahiye.

Hasad saza-e-kamaal-e-sukhan hai kya kijiye.
sitam baha-e-mataa-e-hunar hai kya kahiye.

Keha hai kis ne ki ‘ghalib’ bura nahin lekin,
siwaaye iss ke ki ashufta-sar hai kya kahiye. !!
