Tera Qurb Hai Na Baada Hai, Kya Kiya Jaaye + 5 Ghazals By Ahmad Faraz

Tera qurb hai na baada* hai, kya kiya jaaye,
Phir aaj dukh bhi zeyadaa hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Kuch apne dost bhi turkish-badosh phirte hain,
Kuch apna dil bhi kushaada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Na un se tark-e-taluq ki baat kar paayen,
Na humdumi ka iraada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Woh meherbaan hai, magar dil ki hirss* bhi kam to ho,
Talab karam se zeyada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Humain bhi arz-e-tamanna ka dhangg nahin aata,
Mizaaj-e-yaar bhi saada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Salook-e-yaar se dil doobne laga hai Faraz,
Magar yeh mehfil-e-aaada hai, kya kiya jaaye..

Ab ke tajdeed-e-wafaa ke nahin imkaan jaanan,
Yaad kya tujh ko dilaayen tera paimaan jaanan,

Yoon hi mausam ki adaa dekh ke yaad aaya hai,
Kis qadar jald badal jaate hain insaan jaanan,

Zindagi teri ataa thi, so tere naam ki hai,
Hum ne jese bhi bassar ki tera ehsaan jaanan,

Dil yeh kehta hai ke shayed ho afsurda tu bhi,
Dil ki kya baat karen dil to hai nadaan jaanan,

Awal awal ki mohabbat ke nashe yaad to kar,
Be piye bhi tera chehra tha gulistaan jaanan,

Aakhir aakhir to yeh aalam hai ke ab hosh nahin,
Rag-e-beena sulagg uthi hai rag-e-jaan jaanan,

Muddaton se yeh aalam na tawaqoh na umeed,
Dil pukaare hi chala jaata hai jaanan jaanan,

Hum bhi kya saada they hum ne bhi samajh rakha tha,
Gham-e-doraan se juda hai gham-e-jaanan jaanan,

Ab tera naam bhi shayed hi ghazal mein aaye,
Aur se aur huye dard ke unwaan jaanan,

Hum ke roothi hui rut ko bhi manaa lete they,
Hum ne dekha hi na tha mausam-e-hijraan jaanan,

Hosh aaya to sabhi khawb they raiza raiza,
Jese urrte huye auraaq-e-pareshaan jaanan..

Abhi kuch aur karishmay ghazal ke dekhte hain,
Faraz ab zara lehja badal ke dekhte hain,

Judaeyaan tau muqaddar hain phir bhi ay jaan-e-safar,
Kuch aur door zara saath chal ke dekhte hain,

Rah-e-wafa mein hareef-e-kharaam koi to ho,
Sau apne aap se aagay nikal ke dekhte hain,

Tu samnay hai tau phir kyon yaqeen nahi aata,
Yeh baar baar jo aankhon ko mall ke dekhte hain,

Yeh kaun log hain moujood teri mehfil mein,
Jo lalichoon se tujhe, mujh ko jall ke dekhte hain,

Yeh qurb kya hai ke yakjaan huye na door huye,
Hazaar aik hi qaalib mein dhall ke dekhte hain,

Na tujh ko maat huyi hai na mujh ko maat huyi,
Sau ab ke dono hi chaalen badal ke dekhte hain,

Yeh kaun hai sar-e-saahil ke doobnay walay,
Samundaroon ki taho’n se ucchal ke dekhte hain,

Abhi talak tau na kundan huye na raakh huye,
Hum apni aag mein har roz jal ke dekhte hain,

Bohat dinon se nahi hai kuch us ki kher khabar,
Chalo Faraz kuu-e-yaar chal ke dekhte hain…

*******************************************

Wafaa Ke Baab Mein iLzaam-e-Aashiqui Na Lia
Ke Teri Baat Ki Aur Tera Naam Bhi Na Lia

Khusha Wo Loog Ke Mehroom-e-iLtafaat Rahay
Tere Karam Ko Ba Andaaz-e-Saadgi Na Lia

Tumhaaray Baad Kayi Haath Dil Ki Simt Barhay
Hazaar Shukar Girebaan Ko Ham Ne Si Na Lia

Tamaam Masti-o-Tishna Labi Ke Hangaamay
Kisi Ne Sang Uthaaya, Kisi Ne Meena Lia

“Faraz” Zulm Hai Kuch Itni Khud Aitmaadi Bhi
Ke Raat Bhi Thi Andheri, Charaagh Bhi Na Lia
