Is waqt to youn lagta hai ab kuch bhi nahin hai…. (Faiz)


Is waqt to youn lagta hai ab kuch bhi nahin hai
mahtab na suraj na andhera na sawera
ankhon ke dariche main kisi husn ki jhalkan
aur dil ki panahon main kisi dard ka dera
mumkin hai koi wehem ho mumkin hai suna ho
galiyon main kisi chaap ka ek akhiri phera
shaakhon main khayalon ke ghane per ki shayad
ab aakey karega na koi khwaab basera
ik bair na ik mehr na ik rabt na rishta
tera koi apna na paraya koi mera
mana ke ye sun-saan ghari sakht bari hai
lekin mere dil ye to faqat ek ghari hai
himmat karo jeene ko abhi umr pari hai

  1. A good one. I sometimes think that Faiz Sahab should have been announced the national poet of Pakistan, don’t mean to compare with Iqbal, or under-estimate his messages but Faiz sounds so real, his poetry can shake somebody, though sometimes i feel his messages are not looked upon, as in mujh se pehli si muhabbat mere mehboob na maang, I think it is our injured and heart broken country talking to the nation but some people take it as some sort of ‘ghamgeen nazam’. Also Dhaka se wapsi par is received as mujh se pehli si muhabbat. Thanks for writing more than other bloggers, nice going through your blogs too. Kudos for putting up the issues women are faced with.
