Dua Shayari

There are many words in Urdu poetry that have been treated in entirely different ways and contexts to create unusual kinds of meaning. A number of such words can be found in the domain of faith. Dua, or prayer, is one such word that has been used quite creatively and in multiple contexts. Here, you would find a lover praying for union and his prayers returned unanswered. Sometimes, being disappointed, he even prays for his release from love that brings only suffering. This and many other conditions of this kind can be found in this selection for the curious readers.

āḳhir duā kareñ bhī to kis mudda.ā ke saath


kaise zamīñ baat kaheñ āsmāñ se ham

aate haiñ barg-o-baar daraḳhtoñ ke jism par


tum bhī uThāo haath ki mausam duā hai

abhī diloñ tanāboñ meñ saḳhtiyāñ haiñ bahut


abhī hamārī duā meñ asar nahīñ aayā

abhī raah meñ ka.ī moḌ haiñ koī aa.egā koī jā.egā


tumheñ jis ne dil se bhulā diyā use bhūlne duā karo

adhūre lafz the āvāz ġhair-vāzeh thī


duā ko phir bhī nahīñ der kuchh asar meñ lagī

auroñ burā.ī ko na dekhūñ vo nazar de


haañ apnī burā.ī ko parakhne hunar de

baaqī kyā rahā hai tujhe māñgne ke baad


bas ik duā meñ chhūT ga.e har duā se ham

bhuul jaa.eñ ham ko ye to na ho


log mere liye duā na kareñ

buland hāthoñ meñ zanjīr Daal dete haiñ


ajiib rasm chalī hai duā na māñge koī

dekh kar tuul-e-shab-e-hijr duā kartā huuñ


vasl ke roz se bhī umr mirī kam ho jaa.e

dene vaale tujhe denā hai to itnā de de


ki mujhe shikva-e-kotāhī-e-dāmāñ ho jaa.e

duā karo ki ye paudā sadā harā lage


udāsiyoñ meñ bhī chehra khilā khilā lage

duā ko haat uThāte hue laraztā huuñ


kabhī duā nahīñ māñgī thī maañ ke hote hue

duā.eñ māñgī haiñ saaqī ne khol kar zulfeñ


basān-e-dast-e-karam abr-e-dajla-baar baras

duā.eñ yaad karā ga.ī thiiñ bachpan meñ


so zaḳhm khāte rahe aur duā diye ga.e ham

ġham-e-dil ab kisī ke bas nahīñ


kyā davā kyā duā kare koī

haa.e koī davā karo haa.e koī duā karo


haa.e jigar meñ dard hai haa.e jigar ko kyā karūñ

hai duā yaad magar harf-e-duā yaad nahīñ


mere naġhmāt ko andāz-e-navā yaad nahīñ

ik terī tamannā ne kuchh aisā navāzā hai


māñgī nahīñ jaatī ab koī duā ham se
