Itna To Dosti Ka Silaah Dijiye Mujhe

Itna To Dosti Ka Silaah Dijiye Mujhe,
Apna Samajh Ke Zeher Pila Dijiye Mujhe;

Uthe Na Taa-Ke Aap Ki Janib Nazar Koi,
Jitni Bhi Tohmtain Hain Lagaa Dijiye Mujhe;

Kyon Aap Ki Khushi Ko Mera Gham Kare Udaas,
Ik Talkhh Haadsa Hun Bhula Dijiye Mujhe;

Main Aap Ke Kareeb Hi Hota Hun Har Ghadi,
Mauka Kabhi Pade To Sada Dijiye Mujhe;

Har Cheez Dastiyaab Hai Bazaar Mein Adam,
Jhoothi Khushi Khareed Ke La Dijiye Mujhe!…

Ab Woh Ghar Tak Viraana Tha Bas Viraana Zinda Tha

Ab Woh Ghar Tak Viraana Tha Bas Viraana Zinda Tha,
Sab Aankhen Damm Tod Chuki Thi Aur Main Tanha Zinda Tha;

Saari Gali Sunsaan Padi Thi Baad-E-Fana Ke Pehre Mein,
Hijr Ke Dalaan Aur Aangan Mein Bas Ik Saaya Zinda Tha;

Woh Dopeher Apni Rukhsat Ki Aisa Waisa Dhoka Thi,
Apne Andar Apni Laash Uthaaye Main Jhootha Zinda Tha;

Thi Woh Ghar Raatein Bhi Kahani Vaade Aur Phir Din Ginna,
Aana Tha Jaane Wale Ko Jaane Wala Zinda Tha;

Dastak Dene Wale Bhi The Dastak Sunne Wale Bhi,
Tha Abaad Mohalla Sara Har Darwaza Zinda Tha;

Peele Patton Ko Seh-Pehr Ki Vehshat Pursa Deti Thi,
Aangan Mein Ik Aundhe Ghade Par Bas Ik Kava Zinda Tha!…

Deedaar Ki Hawas Hai Na Shauq-E-Visaal Hai

Deedaar Ki Hawas Hai Na Shauq-E-Visaal Hai,
Azaad Har Khayal Se Mast-E-Khayal Hai;

Keh Do Yeh Kohkan Se Hi Marna Nahi Kamaal,
Mar Mar Ke Hijr-E-Yaar Main Jeena Kamaal Hai;

Fatva Diya Hai Mufti Abr-E-Bahaar Ne,
Tauba Ka Khooon Baada-Kashon Ko Halaal Hai;

Aankhen Bata Rahi Hain Jaage Ho Raat Ko,
In Saaghron Mein Buu-E-Sharab-E-Visaal Hai;

Barsaao Teer Mujh Pe Par Itna Jaan Lo,
Pehlu Mein Dil Hai Dil Mein Tumhara Khayal Hai;

Aankhen Lada Ke Un Se Hum Aafaat Mein Pad Gaye,
Aankhon Ki Har Zubaan Pe Dil Ka Sawaal Hai;

Bhutt Keh Diya Jo Maine To Ab Bolte Nahin,
Itni Si Baat Ka Tumhe Itna Khayal Hai;

Pucha Jo Unse Jaante Ho Tum Jaleel Ko,
Bole Ke Haan Woh Shayer-E-Naazuk-Khayal Hai!…

Aur Bhi Ho Gaye Begana Wo Gaflat Karke

Aur Bhi Ho Gaye Begana Wo Gaflat Karke;
Aazamaya Jo Unhein Tark-e-Mohabbat Karke;

Dil Ne Chhodaa Hai Na Chhode Tere Milne Ka Khayal;
Baaraha Dekh Liya Humne Malamat Karke;

Ruh Ne Payi Hai Takleef-e-Judai Se Nijaat;
Aapki Yaad Ko Saramaya-e-Rahat Karke;

Chhed Se Ab Wo Ye Kehte Hain Ki Sambhlo ‘Hasarat’;
Sabr-o-Taab-e-Dil-Beemaar Ko Garat Karke!…

Dil Ne Ek Ek Dukh Saha Tanha

Dil Ne Ek Ek Dukh Saha Tanha;
Anjuman Anjuman Raha Tanha;

Dhalte Saayon Mein Tere Kooche Se;

Waqt Ka Ek Kehkaha Tanha!…

Baat Karni Mujhe Mushkil Kabhi Aisi To Na Thi

Baat Karni Mujhe Mushkil Kabhi Aisi To Na Thi;
Jaisi Ab Hai Teri Mehfil Kabhi Aisi To Na Thi;

Taab Tujh Mein Maah-e-Kaamil Kabhi Aisi To Na Thi;

Kya Sabab Tu Jo Bigadta Hai ‘Zafar’ Se Har Baar;
Khoo Teri Hoor-e-Shamaail Kabhi Aisi To Na Thi!…

Koi Kaanta Chubha Nahi Hota

Koi Kaanta Chubha Nahi Hota;
Dil Agar Phool Sa Nahi Hota;

Kuch To Majabooriyan Rahi Hongi;
Yun Koi Bewafa Nahi Hota;

Guftagu Un Se Roz Hoti Hai;
Muddaton Saamana Nahi Hota;

Jee Bahut Chahta Sach Bole;
Kya Karein Haunsala Nahi Hota;

Raat Ka Intezar Kaun Kare;
Aaj Kal Din Mein Kya Nahi Hota!…

Kuch Fainsla To Ho Ki Kidhar Jana Chahiye

Kuch Fainsla To Ho Ki Kidhar Jana Chahiye;
Pani Ko Ab To Sar Se Guzar Jana Chahiye;

Har Baar Aidiyon Pe Gira Hai Mera Lahoo;
Maqtal Mein Ab B-Tarz-E-Digar Jana Chahiye;

Ilzam Ye Bhi Chaand Ke Sar Jana Chahiye;

Jab Bhi Gaye Azaab-E-Dar-O-Baam Tha Wahi;
Aakhir Ko Kitni Der Se Ghar Jana Chahiye;

Tohmat Laga Ke Maa Pe Jo Dushman Se Daad Le;
Aise Sukhanfarosh Ko Mar Jana Chaahiye!…

Hum Ne Sab Sher Mein Sanware The

Hum Ne Sab Sher Mein Sanware The;
Hum Se Jitne Sukhan Tumhare The;

Rang-o-Khusbhu Ke Husn-o-Khoobi Ke;

Mere Daaman Mein Aa Gire Saare;
Jitne Tasht-E-Falak Mein Taare The;

Umar-E-Jaaved Kee Dua Karte;
