Agarche zor hawaaon ne daal rakha hai,

Agarche zor hawaaon ne daal rakha hai,
Magar charaagh ne lau ko sambhaal rakha hai,

Mohabton main to milna hai ya ujad jaana,
Mizaaj-e-ishq main kab etidaal rakha hai,

Bhale dinon ka bharosa hi kya rahen na rahe,
So maine rishta-e-gham ko bahaal rakha hai,

Bhari bahaar main ik shaakh pr khilaa hai gulaab,
Ke jaise tu ne hatheli pe gaal rakha hai,

Faraz ishq ki duniya to khuubsurat thi,
Yeh kis ne fitna e hijr o visaal rakha hai..

Har koi dil ki hatheli pe hai sehraa rakhe,

Har koi dil ki hatheli pe hai sehraa rakhe,
Kis ko sairaab kare kise pyaasa rakhe,

Umar bhar kon nibhaata hai taluq itna,
Aye meri jaan ke dushman tujhe Allah rakhe,

Hum ko acha nahin lagta koi hum-naam tera,
Koi tujh sa ho to naam bhi tujh sa rakhe,

Dil bhi pagal hai ke uss shakss se wabasta hai,
Jo kisi aur ka hone de na apna rakhe,

Hanss na itna bhi faqeeron ke akele pan pr,
Ja khuda meri tarah tujh ko bhi tanhaa rakhe,

Yeh qanaat hai itaaat hai ke chahat hai Faraz,
Hum to raazi hain woh jis haal main jesa rakhe..

Ab is shauq se ke jaan se guzar jana chahiye,

Ab is shauq se ke jaan se guzar jana chahiye,
Bol ae havaa-e-sheher kidhar jana chahiye,

Kab tak isi ko aakhri manzil kahen ge hum,
Kuu-e-muraad se bhi udhar jana chahiye,

Woh waqt aa geya hai ke saahil ko chorr kar,
Gehre samundron main utar jana chahiye,

Ab raftagaan ki baat nahin kaarvaan ki hai,
Jiss samt bhi ho gard-e-safar jaana chahiye,

Ya apni khawhishon ko muqaddass na jaante,
Ya khawhishon ke saath hi mar jaana chahiye..

Yeh kya ke sab se beyaan dil ki haalaten karni,

Yeh kya ke sab se beyaan dil ki haalaten karni,
Faraz tujh ko na aayin muhabbaten karni,

Yeh qurb kya hai ke tu saamne hai aur humen,
Shumaar abhi se judaayi ki saaaten karni,

Koi khudaa ho ke pathar jise bhi hum chahen,
Tamaam umr ussi ki ibaadaten karni,

Sab apne apne qareene se muntazir us ke,
Kisi ko shukr kisi ko shikaayaten karni,

Hum apne dil se hi majboor aur logon ko,
Zara si baat pe barpaa qayamaten karni,

Milen jab un se to mubham si guftaguu karna,
Phir apne aap se sau sau vazaahten karni,

Chalo ke kuucha-e-dildaar chal ke dekhte hain,

Chalo ke kuucha-e-dildaar chal ke dekhte hain,
Kise kise hai yeh aazaar chal ke dekhte hain,

Suna hai aesa maseeha kahin se aaya hai,
Ke us ko sheher ke bemaar chal ke dekhte hain,

Hum apne but ko, zulekha liye hai yusuf ko,
Hai kon ronak-e-bazar chal ke dekhte hain,

Uss aik shakss ko dekho to aankh bharti nahin,
Uss aik shakss ko har baar chal ke dekhte hain,

Woh mere ghar ka kare qassd jab to saaye se,
Kayi qadam dar-o-deewaar chal ke dekhte hain,

Us ko juda huye bhi zamana bohat hua,

Us ko juda huye bhi zamana bohat hua,
Ab kya kahen yeh qissa purana bohat hua,

Dhalti na thi kisi bhi jatan se shab-e-firaq,
Ae marg e na-gahaan tera aana bohat hua,

Hum khuld se nikal to gaye hain pr ae khuda,
Itne se waaqiye ka fasaana bohat hua,

Ab hum hain aur saare zamaane ki dushmani,
Iss aashiqi main jaan se jana bohat hua,

Ab tak to dil se dil ka taaruf na ho saka,
Maana ke us se milna milaana bohat hua,

Kya kya na hum kharab huye hain magar yeh dil,
Ae yaad-e-yaar tera thikaana bohat hhua,

Aese chup hain ke yeh manzil bhi karri ho jese,

Aese chup hain ke yeh manzil bhi karri ho jese,
Tera milna bhi judaayi ki gharri ho jese,

Apne hi saaye se har gaam larazz jaata hoon,
Raaste main koi deewaar kharri ho jese,

Kitne nadaan hain tere bhoolne wale ke tujhe,
Yaad karne ke liye umr parri ho jese,

Tere maathe ki shikkan pehle bhi dekhi thi magar,
Yeh giraah ab ke mere dil main parri ho jese,

Manzilen door bhi hain manzilen nazdeek bhi hain,
Apne hi paaon main zanjeer parri ho jese,

Ab kya sochen kya halaat the kis kaaran yeh zehr piya hai,

Ab kya sochen kya halaat the kis kaaran yeh zehr piya hai,
Ham ne us ke sheher ko choda aur ankhon ko moond liya hai,

Apna yeh sheva to nahin tha apne gham auron ko saumpein,
Khud to jaagte ya sote hain us ko kyun be-khawb kiya hai,

Khilqat ki awaazain bhi thi band us ke darvaaze bhi they,
Taaza rifaaqat ke mausam tak main bhi jiya hoon woh bhi jiya hai,

Ek Faraz tumhin tanhaa ho jab tak dukh ke rasiyaa ho,
Warna aksar dil walon ne dard ka raasta chorr diya hai..

Aasshiqi me mir jaise khawb mat dekha karo,

Aasshiqi me mir jaise khawb mat dekha karo,
Baavle ho jaaoge mahtaab mat dekha karo,

Jasta jasta parh liya karna mazaamin-e-vafaa,
Par kitaab-e-ishq kaa har baab mat dekha karo,

Is tamaashe me ulat jaati hain aksar kashtiyan,
Doobne waalon ko zair-e-aab mat dekha karo,

Mai-kade me kya takaluf mai-kashii me kya hijaab,
Bazm-e-saaqi me adab adaab mat dekha karo,

Maange maange ki qabaayen dair tak rehti nahin,
Yaar logon ke laqab laqaab mat dekha karo,

Silsle torr geya woh sabhi jaate jaate,

Silsle torr geya woh sabhi jaate jaate,
Warna itne to marasim they ke aate jaate,

Shikwa-e-zulmat-e-shab se to kahin behtar tha,
Apne hisse ki koi shamma jalaate jaate,

Kitna asaan tha tere hijr main marna jaana,
Phir bhi ik umar lagi jaan se jaate jaate,

Jashn-e-maqtal hi na barpa hua warna hum bhi,
Pa-bajolaan hi sahi naachte gaate aate,

Us ki woh jaane usse paas-e-wafa tha ke na tha,
Tum Faraz apni tarf se to nibhaate jaate..

Tera qurb hai na baada* hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Tera qurb hai na baada* hai, kya kiya jaaye,
Phir aaj dukh bhi zeyadaa hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Kuch apne dost bhi turkish-badosh phirte hain,
Kuch apna dil bhi kushaada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Na un se tark-e-taluq ki baat kar paayen,
Na humdumi ka iraada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Woh meherbaan hai, magar dil ki hirss* bhi kam to ho,
Talab karam se zeyada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Humain bhi arz-e-tamanna ka dhangg nahin aata,
Mizaaj-e-yaar bhi saada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Ab ke tajdeed-e-wafaa ke nahin imkaan jaanan,

Ab ke tajdeed-e-wafaa ke nahin imkaan jaanan,
Yaad kya tujh ko dilaayen tera paimaan jaanan,

Yoon hi mausam ki adaa dekh ke yaad aaya hai,
Kis qadar jald badal jaate hain insaan jaanan,

Zindagi teri ataa thi, so tere naam ki hai,
Hum ne jese bhi bassar ki tera ehsaan jaanan,

Dil yeh kehta hai ke shayed ho afsurda tu bhi,
Dil ki kya baat karen dil to hai nadaan jaanan,

Abhi kuch aur karishmay ghazal ke dekhte hain,

Abhi kuch aur karishmay ghazal ke dekhte hain,
Faraz ab zara lehja badal ke dekhte hain,

Judaeyaan tau muqaddar hain phir bhi ay jaan-e-safar,
Kuch aur door zara saath chal ke dekhte hain,

Rah-e-wafa mein hareef-e-kharaam koi to ho,
Sau apne aap se aagay nikal ke dekhte hain,

Tu samnay hai tau phir kyon yaqeen nahi aata,
Yeh baar baar jo aankhon ko mall ke dekhte hain,

Yeh kaun log hain moujood teri mehfil mein,
Jo lalichoon se tujhe, mujh ko jall ke dekhte hain,
