Yeh Bastiyaan Hain K Maqtal


Ye bastiyaaN hain K maqtal, duaa kiye jayeN

Duaa ke din  hain musalsal, duaa kiye jayeN

Koi fughaaN, koi Naalaa, koi buka, koi bain

Khulega baab -e- muqaffal, duaa kiye jayeN

Ye aztraab, yeh lambaa safar, yeh tanhaayi

Yeh raat aur yeh jangal, duaa kiye jayeN

Bahaal hoke rahe gi fezaa-e-khitta-e-khair

Yeh habs hoga mu’attal, duaa kiye jayeN

Guzashtagan-e-muhabbat ke khaab ki saugand

Woh khaab hoga mukammal, duaa kiye jayeN

Hawaaye-sarkash-o-saffaak ke muqaabil bhi

Ye dil bujheiNge na mash’al, duaa kiye jayeN

Ghubaar uRaati, jhulasti hui zamiinoN par

UmaNd ke aayeiNge baadal, duaa kiye jayeN

Qubool hona muqaddar hai harf-e-khaalis ka

Har aek aan, har ek pal, duaa kiye jayeN

    • Shukriya! Iftekhaar Arif Saheb ne yeh ghazal us din likhi thi jis din Be Nazir Bhutto Qatl kar di gayiN… Jab shaair ka dil intehaayi dard se bhara ho to aise hi sach_che ash’ar nikalte hain!
