bikhre ash’aar (3)

Here are some couplets I read today by Riaz Khairabadi

zaahid sharaab peene de, masjid meiN baiTh kar
yaa vo jagah bataa de jahaaN par Khudaa na ho

Khuda ke haath hai bikna na bikna ma_e kaa ab saaqi
baraabar masjid-e-jaame’ ke ab rakh di dukaaN maiN ne

Hasrat Mohani:

nahiiN aati to yaad unki maheenoN bhar nahiiN aati
magar jab yaad aate haiN to aksar yaad aate haiN

bikhre ash’aar (2)

Some ash’aar by Munawwar Rana

siyaasi aadmi ki shakl to pyaari nikaltii hai
magar jab guftagoo karta hai chingaari nikaltii hai

laboN par muskuraahaT dil meiN bezaari nikalti hai
baRe logoN meiN hi aksar ye beemaari nikalti hai

——
balandi der tak kis shaKhs ke hisse meiN rahtii hai
bahut uuNchii imaarat har ghaRi Khatre meiN rahtii hai

bahut jee chaahtaa hai qaid-e-jaaN se ham nikal jaayeiN
tumhaari yaad bhii lekin isi malbe meiN rahtii hai

ye aisaa qarz hai jo maiN adaa kar hi nahiiN saktaa
maiN jab tak ghar na lauTooN meri maaN sajde meiN rahtii hai
