aah kiye jaa raha huN maiN–jigar muradabadi

begum aKhtar singing

آہ کئے جا رہا ہوں میں ۔ جگر مرادآبادی

 

وہ ہنس رہے ہیں آہ کئے جا رہا ہوں میں

پتھر کے دل میں راہ کئے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

بحرِ کرم کو جوش میں لانے کے واسطے

دانستہ کچھ گناہ کئے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

عادت کے بعد درد بھی دینے لگا مزا

ہنس ہنس کے آہ آہ کئے جا رہا ہوں میں

आह किये जा रहा हूं मैं – जिगर मुरादाबादी

 

वो हंस रहे हैं आह किये जा रहा हूं मैं

पत्थर के दिल में राह किये जा रहा हूं मैं

 

बहर-ए करम को जोश में लाने के वास्ते

दानिस्ता कुछ गुनाह किये जा रहा हूं मैं

 

आदत के बाद दर्द भी देने लगा मज़ा

हंस हंस के आह आह किये जा रहा हूं मैं
