kya baat jo benaqaub ho

kehne ko saara aalam saraab hai
ye jhoothi numaaish hubaab hai
sunne ko hai.n aaye hujoom mei.n
tabhi to ulfato.n pe naqaab hai.n

kya baat jo benaqab ho


chalna to gunaah hai is daudh me
rukna na manzoor hai is haudh me
kaise hai.n sambhale hue kamaal hai
kehne ko to aazaad hai.n kya chaal hai


kya baat jo benaqab ho

sun bhi lo kya hai zamee.n kya mera aasmaa.n
keh bhi do kyu.n hai thami zubaa.n pe ye daastaa.n
muntazir rahoo.n mai.n ya rahoo.n mai.n beparwah
keh bhi do kya hai kami kyu.n aankh mei.n nami


maana ke (gumaan)

maana ke hum dono ki khata
maana ke hum qaayar hi the
maana ke humei.n na tha kuch pata
maana ke hum jaahil hi the

par ye gumaan


gunjaaish na thi k behtar kuch hoga
k furmaan-e-aamad der hui
imkaa.n na tha k qatl bhi hoga
k nazrei.n shafaaf der hui

par ye gumaan


maana ke khudgarz hi the
maana ke tehzeeb na thi
kyu.n qurbat bhari wafa me the
maana ke taabeer na thi


tawaqu’aat

kho kar guroor kyun aaye ho tum
achanak se iss tarah
k talo-e-sehar magrib se aaj
ho goya aisa gumaan

sambhaalo ye hosh kahaa.n bekhabar
hue ho tum jaan-e-jaa.n
khawabo.n se door mile ho mujhe tum
kahaa.n ye kis tarah

hua aashna kyu.n ye daur
hoo.n ban chuka kyun koi aur

ik arsa hua lage the jo zakhm
abhi tak bhare nahi.n
quredo na yoo.n bikhar me na jaaoo.n
yahee.n iss jagah



tere bina

hai jo munaasib wo mumkin nahi.n
hai jo irade wo jaaiz nahi.n
sardiyo.n mei.n sard hai.n
narmiyon ki gard hai.n
tere bina

chupa ke rakh lo
qeemti ye hai.n
dil to zara se nalaayak bhi hain
qillato.n ki dhoop mei.n
chaao.n jaisi zarooratei.n hai.n
tere bina

aa bhi jaao na
kitni der hui
ghar ko aao na
kitni der hui


raat

saanson ki aahat se
iss thartharahat se
kab tak me darta firoo.n

aatish ki raunak se
sooraj ki lau se
kab tak me chipta firoo.n

wo mujhse roothi hai
kis dil se tooti hai
iss ko bayaa.n bhi kare

aankhei.n mila ke to
koshish bahut karli
wo mujhko samajh na sake

wo mera aaquib ho
wo mera manzar
haan wo hai mera aasmaa.n

mere zehan pe hai
yaad zubaani hai
haa.n wo jo meri dastaa.n

kitaabo.n pe likhi
hui iss kahaani se
kyu.n hoo.n na mai.n roobaroo

matlab ke qalmo ko
padh kar bhi kyun na
mai.n matlab inka samjhoo.n

wo hi ibaadat hai
jo meri taaqat
haa.n wo hai mera hi khuda

wo meri aadat hai
wo meri fursat
hai kyu.n fir wo mujhse juda

ye raat kyun mumkin nahin


asma

aana mere sapno.n me tum aaj
poore din se ho aankho.n tale
kuch baaien hain jo me keh na saka
karni hai.n mujhe poori wo aaj

mukhatib hona meri zubaa.n pe hi hai
chalo aao kahi.n dil zaar karei.n
guzaarish karoo.n ya karoo.n mai.n dua
mujh pe bhi kabhi ye ehsaan karo

teri yaad mujhe jeene na de

majboor kiya iss dil ne mujhe
iss zindagi mei.n gham aur bhi the
kuch dard hai.n jo bayaa.n ho na sakei.n
hota aisa bhi pyaar hai kya

teri yaad mujhe jeene na de


pehchaan

ise pehchaano ye jo raakh yahaa.n
hai kab se padhi
kayi darwaaze hai.n hue khaak jahaa.n
ab kuch bhi nahi

hue hai.n tamashe din aur raat yahaa.n
ab sab ko pata
hue haan tamashe sar-e-aam jahaa.n
ab kya hai bacha


yahaan

baat kyu.n na bayaa.n ho
saamne jab khuda ho
ilm ki hi to kami hai
chup ye zubaa.n kyu.n na ho

yahaa.n kami hai gairo.n ki

choo lo mujhe tum zubaa.n se
dil ke andhero.n se dua se
fikrei.n bhari kyu.n fiza mei.n
choo lo mujhe befikri se

yahaan kami hai gairon ki

saamne tum ho ya koi khuda hai, hai kya?
hum bemaqsad hai.n hum behaya hai.n, hai.n kya?

tifl-e-maqtab hi aalim hai
zaat hai jahaalat ki
khudgarz ki ye duniya kyu.n
wafa waishiya shaitaa.n ki

yahaa.n kami hai gairon ki
