GHAZAL CATEGORY
aae kuchh abr kuchh sharab aae1
aaj yun mauj-dar-mauj gham tham gaya is tarah gham-zadon ko qarar aa gaya2
aap ki yad aati rahi rat bhar1
ab jo koi puchhe bhi to us se kya sharh-e-halat karen0
ab wahi harf-e-junun sab ki zaban thahri hai2
bat bas se nikal chali hai1
be-dam hue bimar dawa kyun nahin dete1
chand nikle kisi janib teri zebai ka2
chashm-e-maigun zara idhar kar de0
dil men ab yun tire bhule hue gham aate hain3
donon jahan teri mohabbat men har ke3
fikr-e-dildari-e-gulzar karun ya na karun0
garmi-e-shauq-e-nazara ka asar to dekho2
girani-e-shab-e-hijran do-chand kya karte2
gulon men rang bhare bad-e-nau-bahar chale3
hairan hai jabin aaj kidhar sajda rawa hai0
hamin se apni nawa ham-kalam hoti rahi0
har haqiqat majaz ho jae0
har samt pareshan teri aamad ke qarine0
hasrat-e-did men guzran hain zamane kab se0
hum musafir yunhi masruf-e-safar jaenge0
hum par tumhari chah ka ilzam hi to hai3
humne sab sher men sanware the1
jamegi kaise bisat-e-yaran ki shisha o jam bujh gae hain2
kab tak dil ki khair manaen kab tak rah dikhlaoge1
kab thahrega dard ai dil kab rat basar hogi3
kab yad men tera sath nahin kab hat men tera hat nahin2
kis harf pe tu ne gosha-e-lab ai jan-e-jahan ghammaz kiya0
kiye aarzu se paiman jo maal tak na pahunche0
kuchh mohtasibon ki khalwat men kuchh waiz ke ghar jati hai2
na ganwao nawak-e-nim-kash dil-e-reza-reza ganwa diya2
na kisi pe zakhm ayan koi na kisi ko fikr rafu ki hai0
nahin nigah men manzil to justuju hi sahi1
qarz nigah-e-yar ada kar chuke hain hum0
rah-e-khizan men talash-e-bahar karte rahe0
rang pairahan ka khushbu zulf lahrane ka nam1
sab qatl ho ke tere muqabil se aae hain0
sabhi kuchh hai tera diya hua sabhi rahaten sabhi kulfaten0
shafaq ki rakh men jal bujh gaya sitara-e-sham0
shaikh sahab se rasm-o-rah na ki1
sham-e-firaq ab na puchh aai aur aa ke tal gai1
sharh-e-bedardi-e-halat na hone pai0
sitam ki rasmen bahut thin lekin na thi teri anjuman se pahle0
teri surat jo dil-nashin ki hai0
teri umid tira intizar jab se hai2
tire gham ko jan ki talash thi tire jan-nisar chale gae2
tujhe pukara hai be-irada0
tum aae ho na shab-e-intizar guzri hai1
tumhari yad ke jab zakhm bharne lagte hain1
wafa-e-wada nahin wada-e-digar bhi nahin2
wahin hain dil ke qarain tamam kahte hain0
yad-e-ghazal-chashman zikr-e-saman-azaran2
ye kis khalish ne phir is dil men aashiyana kiya0
ye mausam-e-gul garche tarab-khez bahut hai0
yun saja chand ki jhalka tire andaz ka rang0
