kitne mukhtasar hain meri khushi k lamhe faraz

August 12, 2009
mujhe guman hai ki chaha hai bahot zamane ne mujhe
mai aziz to sabka hun magar zarooraton ki tarah.
kitne mukhtasar hain meri khushi k lamhe faraz
mere muskurane se pahle hi guzar jate hain.
chahne wale muqaddar se mila karte hai faraz
usne is baat ko tasleem kiya magar mere jaane k bad.
aaj toot kar jo yad aayi uski to ehsaas hua
utar jaate hain jo dil me bhulaye nahi jate.
hum bikne gaye the bazar-e-mohabbat me faraz
kya pata tha dil walon ko log kharida nahi karte.
udasiyon se wabasta hai yeh zindagi meri sahi
khuda gawaah hai phir bhi tujhe hum yad karte hai.

dosti ko daulat ki nazar se na dekh ae galib

July 29, 2009
hame aata hai sukun isliye tere pas chale aate hai saki
warna mia kahne ko to aur bhi hain mahkhane teri ankhon k siva.
dosti ko daulat ki nazar se na dekh ae galib
ahle wafa aksar garib hua karte hain.
baha k aansun mere wo kahte hain faraz
tumhari ankhon pani kitna haseen lagta hai.
chupke usko ek gulab bheja tha magar
khusbu ne shaher bhar me tamasha bana diya.
kabhi kabhi pathr k takrane se aati hai kharas
kabhi ek zara si bat par insan bikhar jata hai.
dil ki viran basti humse poocha karti hain faraz
wo kahn gaye jo dil me basne aaye the.

raat badi mushkil se sulaya hai khud ko maine faraz

July 29, 2009
raat badi mushkil se sulaya hai khud ko maine faraz
apni aankh ko tere khawab ka lalach dekar.
usne pukara to laraz gayi meri dil ki zameen
piche mud k dekha to mukhatib kisi aur se tha.
har kisi ki zindagi ka ek hi maksad hai faraz
khud beshak ho bewafa par talaash wafa ki karta hai.
kuch isliye bhi doston se rabta kam rakhta hun faraz
ki kal mar bhi jaun to kisi ki aankhen nam na hon.
kahin kuch zakhm nahi phir bhi dard ka ehsas hota hai faraz
lagta hai dil ka tukda aaj bhi uske pas hai.
tujhe fursat na mili padhne ki warna
hum to bikte rahe tere saher me kitabon ki tarah.

aansu utha lete hai mere gamo ka bojh faraz

July 10, 2009
aansu utha lete hai mere gamo ka bojh faraz,
yeh wo dost hain jo ehsan jataya nahin karte.
mujhe nahi maloom wo meri kismat mein hai k nahi
magar use khuda se mangna achcha lagta hai.
usne mujhe chod diya to kya hua faraz
maine bhi to chora tha sara zamana usike liye.
galti hui use jaan se bhi ziada chahne lage faraz
kya pata tha meri itni wafa use bewafa kar degi.
taqat nahi mujhme k duniya se chin lun use faraz
lekin khuda se mangne ka haq to hai mujhe.
hum to bejaan chizon se bhi wafa karte hain faraz
usme to phir bhi meri jaan basti hai.

be nishaan manzilon k safar par nikloge to jaan jaoge

June 13, 2009

 

be nishaan manzilon k safar par nikloge to jaan jaoge faraz
hum jaise musafir kuin ghar ka rasta bhul jate hai.
meri ankhen bhi ek din mujhse ye kah dengi faraz
khawab na uska dekha kro humse ab roya nahi jata
hujoom itna ho tumhari zindagi me khushiyon ka faraz
gam guzarne bhi payen to use rasta na mile
mere halaat ne kar diya tha khamosh mujhe faraz
zara hum chup kya hue doston ne yad karna hi chor diya.
mere halaat ne kar diya tha khamosh mujhe faraz
zara hum chup kya hue doston ne yad karna hi chor diya.
kahin tanha na kar de tujhe munfarid rahne ka andaaz faraz
jab din dhale to kisi se hale dil kah diya karo.
khuda bhi na bach saka mohabbat ke takazon se
ek mahboob ki khatir saari duniya bana daali.
main uska hun yeh raaz to wo jaan gaya hai faraz
wo kiska hai yeh sawal mujhe sone nahi deta.
