is qadar musalsal thin shiddaten judai ki

is qadar musalsal thin shiddaten judai ki
aaj pahli bar us se main ne bewafai ki

warna ab talak yun tha KHwahishon ki barish mein
ya to TuT kar roya ya ghazal-sarai ki

taj diya tha kal jin ko hum ne teri chahat mein
aaj un se majburan taza aashnai ki

ho chala tha jab mujh ko iKHtilaf apne se
tu ne kis ghaDi zalim meri ham-nawai ki

tark kar chuke qasid ku-e-na-muradan ko
kaun ab KHabar lawe shahr-e-ashnai ki

tanz o tana o tohmat sab hunar hain naseh ke
aap se koi puchhe hum ne kya burai ki

phir qafas mein shor uTTha qaidiyon ka aur sayyaad
dekhna uDa dega phir KHabar rihai ki

dukh hua jab us dar par kal ‘faraaz’ ko dekha
lakh aib the us mein KHu na thi gadai ki
