QITACATEGORY
aa tere hont chum lun ai muzhda-e-najat0
aadmi lakh ho mayus magar misl-e-nasim0
aazmaish hai teri jurat-e-rindana ki0
ab kisi ko bhi nahin hausla-e-talkhi-e-jam0
abhi jawan hai gham-e-zindagi ka har lamha0
abhi poshida hain nazron se khazane kitne0
apne aasab ke mare hue bechaare adib0
apne udte hue aanchal ko na rah rah ke sambhaal0
ata hui hai mere dil ki saltanat tujhko0
bujh gaya teri mohabbat ka sharara to kya0
chashm-e-bina mein sitaron ki haqiqat kya hai0
chhalki saghar mein mai-e-nab gawara ban kar0
dekho to tira-o-tarik faza ka aalam0
ek kiran tut ke sau rang bikhar jate hain0
garche hai musht-e-ghubar aadam o hawwa ka wajud0
gard-e-nafrat se bacha leta hun daman apna0
go mere sar pe siyah raat ki parchhain hai0
har ek khushi dard ke daman mein pali hai0
hawa-e-subh-e-mashriq jag uthi hai0
husn hi husn hai fitrat ke sanam-khane mein0
husn tera kabhi gul aur kabhi mahtab hua0
ishq ek jins-e-giran-maya hai ek daulat hai0
jannat o kausar o afrishta o hur o jibril0
jazba-e-shauq ki takmil nahin ho sakti0
jis tarah khwab ke halke se dhundalke mein koi0
kabhi pahlu mein samundar ke tadap uthti hain0
kahin dariya kahin wadi kahin kohsar bani0
kis qadar nur-e-sahar dekh ke sharmate hain0
koi har gam pe sau dam bichha jata hai0
main to bhula nahin tum bhul gai ho mujhko0
maine apna hi bhigoya hai abhi to daman0
man ki aaghosh mein hansta hua ek tifl-e-jamil0
maut ki aag mein tap tap ke nikharti hai hayat0
maut ko jaante hain asl-e-hayat-e-abadi0
meri duniya mein mohabbat nahin kahte hain ise0
muntashar ho gai wusat mein sitaron ki tarah0
muttahid ho ke uthe zulm ke qadmon se awam0
nasim-e-subh-e-tasawwur ye kis taraf se chali0
nikhat-o-rang ka tufan umand aaya hai0
phans ki tarah har ek sans khatakti hai mujhe0
rang par rang nikharte hi chale aate hain0
sal-ha-sal fazaon mein sharar-bar rahi0
sare aalam mein ye udta hua gul-rang nishan0
shama ki tarah pighalte hue dil dekhe hain0
shisha-e-dil ko agar thes koi lagti hai0
tabassum-e-lab-e-saqi chaman khila hi gaya0
tu haqiqat ko samajhta hai tilismi taswir0
tu nahin hai na sahi teri mohabbat ka khayal0
tu ne khud talkh bana rakkhi hai duniya apni0
un ke kya rang the ab yaad nahin hai mujhko0
un ko milta hi nahin hai dur-e-maqsud kahin0
yak-ba-yak kyun chamak utthi hain nigahen teri0
ye hukumat ke pujari hain ye daulat ke ghulam0
ye to hain chand hi jalwe jo chhalak aae hain0
zehn o jazbaat o ishaaraat o kinayat bani0
zindagani ne diya hai ye mujhe hukm ki tu0
zulf-e-shab-rang ki ghanghor ghata se chhan kar0
zulm aur jahl par israr karoge kab tak0
