• Kaam Sab Ghair Zaruri Hain:

    Kaam Sab Ghair Zaroori Hain Jo Sab Karte Hain,
    Aur Hum Kuch Nahi Karte Hain Lekin Ghazab Karte Hain;

    Hum Pe Hakim Ka Koi Hukm Nahi Chalta Hai,
    Hum Qalandar Hain, Shahanshaah Laqab Karte Hain;

    Aap Ki Nazron Mein Suraj Ke Hai Jitni Azmat,
    Hum Chiraagon Ka Bhi Utna Hi Adab Karte Hain;

    Dekhiye Jisko Use Dhun Hai Masihaai Ki,
    Aaj-Kal Sheharon Ke Bimar Matab Karte Hain!
  • Ye Ehtiyaate Mohabbat:

    Ye Ehtiyaate Mohabbat Toh Jee Nahi Jaati,
    Ki Teri Baat Tujhi Se Kahi Nahi Jaati;

    Teri Nigaah Bhi Kaisi Ajab Kahani Hai,
    Mere Alawa Kisi Se Padhi Nahi Jaati;

    Tujhe Pata Bhi Hai Suraj Tere Ilaake Mein,
    Kahin-Kahin Toh Kabhi Roshni Nahi Jaati;

    Ajab Mizaj Hai In Khandani Logon Ka,
    Tabaah Ho Ke Bhi Dariya Dili Nahi Jaati!
    ~ Wasim Barelvi
  • Yahi Halaat Ibtda Se Rahe:

    Yahi Halaat Ibtda Se Rahe,
    Log Humse Khafa-Khafa Se Rahe;

    Bewafa Tum Kabhi Na The Lekin,
    Yeh Bhi Sach Hai Bewafa Se Rahe;

    In Chiragon Mein Tel Hi Kam Tha,
    Kyon Gila Phir Humein Hawa Se Rahe;

    Bahas, Shatranj, Sher Mausiki,
    Tum Nahi Rahe To Yeh Dilaase Rahe;

    Uske Bando Ko Dekhkar Kahiye,
    Humko Umeed Kya Khuda Se Rahe;

    Zindagi Ki Sharab Mangate Ho,
    Hum Ko Dekho Ki Pee Ke Pyaase Rahe!
    ~ Javed Akhtar
  • Main Iss Ummeed Pe Dooba Ki Tu Bacha Lega:

    Main Iss Ummeed Pe Dooba Ki Tu Bacha Lega,
    Ab Iske Baad Mera Imtihaan Kya Lega;

    Yeh Ek Mela Hai Vaada Kisi Se Kya Lega,
    Dhalegaa Din Toh Har Ek Apna Raasta Lega;

    Main Bujh Geya Toh Hamesha Ko Bujh Hi Jaaunga,
    Koi Chiraag Nahi Hun Ki Phir Jalaa Lega;

    Kaleja Chahiye Dushman Se Dushmani Ke Liye,
    Jo Be-Amal Hai Woh Badla Kisi Se Kya Lega;

    Main Uska Ho Nahi Sakta Bata Na Dena Use,
    Sunegaa Toh Lakeeren Haath Ki Apni Woh Jalaa Lega;

    Hazaar Tod Ke Aa Jaaun Us Se Rishta 'Wasim',
    Main Jaanta Hun, Woh Jab Chahega, Bula Lega!
    ~ Wasim Barelvi
  • Ranjish Hi Sahi:

    Ranjish Hi Sahi Dil Hi Dukhane Ke Liye Aa,
    Aa Phir Se Mujhe Chhod Ke Jane Ke Liye Aa;

    Pehle Se Marasim Na Sahi Phir Bhi Kabhi Toh,
    Rasm-o-Rahe Duniya Hi Nibhane Ke Liye Aa;

    Kis-Kis Ko Batayenge Judaai Ka Sabab Hum,
    Tu Mujh Se Khafa Hai Toh Zamane Ke Liye Aa;

    Kuch To Mere Pindar-e-Mohabbat Ka Bharam Rakh,
    Tu Bhi Toh Kabhi Mujh Ko Manane Ke Liye Aa;

    Ek Umar Se Hun Lazzat-e-Giriya Se Bhi Mehrum,
    Ae Rahat-e-Jaan Mujh Ko Rulane Ke Liye Aa;

    Ab Tak Dil-e-Khushfaham Ko Tujh Se Hain Ummedein,
    Yeh Aakhiri Shammen Bhi Bujhane Ke Liye Aa;

    Mana Ki Mohabbat Ka Chipana Hai Mohabbat,
    Chupke Se Kisi Roz Jatane Ke Liye Aa;

    Jaise Tujhe Aate Hain Na Aane Ke Bahane,
    Aise Hi Kisi Roz Na Jane Ke Liye Aa! ~ Ahmad Faraz
    ~ Ahmad Faraz
  • Har Taraf Har Jagah Beshumaar Aadmi,
    Phir Bhi Tanhaaiyon Ka Shikaar Aadmi;

    Subah Se Shaam Tak Bojh Dhota Hua,
    Apni Hi Laash Ka Khud Mazaar Aadami;

    Har Taraf Bhaagte Daudte Raaste,
    Har Taraf Aadmi Ka Shikaar Aadmi;

    Roz Jeeta Hua Roz Marta Hua,
    Har Naye Din Naya Intezaar Aadmi;

    Zindagi Ka Muqaddar Safar Dar Safar,
    Aakhiri Saans Tak Beqaraar Aadmi!
    ~ Nida Fazli
  • Sari Basti Mein Ye Jadoo Nazar Aaye Mujhko,
    Jo Daricha Bhi Khule Tu Nazar Aaye Mujhko;

    Sadiyon Ka Raat Jaga Meri Raaton Mein Aa Geya,
    Main Ek Haseen Shakhs Ki Baaton Mein Aa Geya;

    Jab Tassavuur Mera Chupke Se Tujhe Choo Aaye,
    Der Tak Apne Badan Se Teri Khushboo Aaye;

    Gustaakh Hawaaon Ki Shikaayat Na Kiya Kar,
    Udd Jaaye Duptta Toh Khanak Odh Liya Kar;

    Tum Pucho Aur Main Na Bataoon Aise Toh Halaat Nahi,
    Ek Zara Sa Dil Toota Hai Aur Toh Koi Baat Nahi;

    Raat Ke Sannate Mein Humne Kya-Kya Dhokhe Khaye Hain,
    Apna Hi Dil Jab Dhadka Toh Hum Samjhe Woh Aaye Hain!
    ~ Qateel Shifai
  • Log Toot Jaate Hain Ek Ghar Banaane Mein,
    Tum Taras Nahi Khate, Bastiyaan Jalaane Mein;

    Aur Jaam Tootenge Is Sharaab-Khaane Mein,
    Mausmon Ke Aane Mein, Mausmon Ke Jane Mein;

    Har Dhadakkate Patthar Ko Log Dil Samajhte Hain,
    Umr Beet Jaati Hai, Dil Ko Dil Banane Mein;

    Fakhtaa Ki Mazboori Yeh Bhi Keh Nahi Sakti,
    Kaun Saanp Rakhta Hai Uske Aashiyane Mein;

    Doosri Koi Ladki Zindgi Mein Aayegi,
    Kitni Der Lagti Hai Usko Bhool Jaane Mein!
    ~ Bashir Badr
  • Ye Sard Raatein Bhi Ban Kar Abhi Dhuaan Uad Jaayein,
    Woh Ik Lihaaf Main Odhu To Sardiyaan Uad Jaayein;

    Khudaa Ka Shukr Ki Mera Makaan Salamat Hai,
    Hain Utani Tez Hawaayein Ki Bastiyan Udd Jaayein;

    Zameen Se Ek Talluk Ne Baandh Rakha Hai,
    Badan Mein Khoon Nahi Ho To Haddiyaan Udd Jaayein;

    Bikhar-Bikhar Si Gayi Hai Kitaab Saanson Ki,
    Yeh Kaagzaat Khudaa Jaane Kab Kahan Udd Jaayein;

    Rahe Khyaal Ki Mazoob-e-Ishq Hain Hum Log,
    Agar Zameen Se Phoonke To Aasmaan Udd Jaayein;

    Hawaayein Baaz Kahan Aati Hain Sharaarat Se,
    Saron Pe Haath Na Rakhein To Pagdiyaan Udd Jaayein;

    Bahut Guroor Hai Dariyaa Ko Apne Hone Par,
    Jo Meri Pyaas Se Uljhe To Dhajjiyan Udd Jaayein!
    ~ Rahat Indori
  • Barabar Se Bach Kar Guzar Jaane Vaale,
    Ye Naale Nahi Be-Asar Jaane Vaale;

    Nahin Jaante Kuchh Ki Jaana Kahan Hai,
    Chale Jaa Rahe Hain Magar Jaane Vaale;

    Mire Dil Ki Betabiyan Bhi Liye Ja,
    Dabe Paanv Munh Pher Kar Jaane Vaale;

    Tire Ik Ishare Pe Sakit Khade Hain,
    Nahin Kah Ke Sab Se Guzar Jaane Vaale;

    Mohabbat Mein Hum To Jiye Hain Jiyenge,
    Woh Honge Koi Aur Mar Jaane Vaale!
    ~ Jigar Moradabadi
