Qaid-e-gham-e-hayaat se humko chhudaa liyaa - Shamim Karhani


Qaid-e-gham-e-hayaat se humko chhudaa liyaa,
Achchha kiya ke aap ne apna banaa liyaa !

Hone diya na hum ne andheraa shab-e-firaaq,
Bujhne laga chiraag to dil ko jalaa liyaa !

Duniyaa ke paas hai koi is tanz ka jawaab ,
Diwaana apne haal pe khud muskuraa liyaa !

Chup hoon tumhaara dard-e-muhabbat liye huye,
Sab poochte hai tum ne zamaane se kyaa liyaa !

Kyaa baat thi ke khalvat-e-zahid ko dekh kar,
Rind-e-gunaahgaar ne sar ko jhukaa diyaa !

Na qaabil-e-bayaan hai muhabbat ki lazzaten,
Kuchh dil hi jaanta hai jo dil ne mazaa liyaa !

Roz-e-azal padi thi hazaaron hi neymatein,
Hum ne kisi ka dard-e-mohabbat utaa liyaa !

Badhne lagi ji talki-e-gham-e-haa-e-zindagi,
Thoda sa baada-e-gham-e-janaan milaa liyaa !

Waqif nahin giraft-e-tasawwur se wo ‘Shamim’,
Jo ye samajh rahe hain ke daaman chhudaa liya !

~ ‘Shamim’ Karhani

  1. Very nice ghazal poetry.
    I am sharing some of my favorite ghazal poetry here.

    Qurbaton mein bhee judai key zamanay mangay
    Dil woh be-mehar ke ronay key bahanay mangay

    Hum na hotay tu kisi aur key charchay hotay
    Khulqat-e-shaher tu kehnay ko fasanay mangay

    Yahi dil tha ke tarasta tha marasim key liay
    Abb yahi tarkey-taaluq key bahanay mangay

    Apna yah haal keh ji haar chukay lut bhi chukay
    Aur mohubaat wohee andaaz puranay mangay

    Dil kisi haal pah qane`h hi nahin jaan-e-FARAZ
    Mil gaay tum bhee tu kaya aur na janay mangay
