امنِ عالم کے نقیب ۔ آنند موہن گلزارؔ دہلوی

۱

اے جواہر لال نہرو امنِ عالم کے نقیب

اے مسیحا دم، حکیمِ قوم، مِلّت کے طبیب

درد مندِ بیکساں اے بے نواؤں کے حبیب

اک صدا سب سے الگ ہے اک نوا سب کے قریب

چھوڑ کر تو کاکدانِ ہستیِ ناپائیدار

اک حیاتِ جاوداں سے ہو چکا ہے  ہمکنار

۲

تیری ہستی نسلِ آدم کے لئے نذرانہ تھی

جستجوئے امن میں سرگرداں جوں پروانہ تھی

عقل کی بستی میں جوئے عشق کی دیوانہ تھی

اور عالمگیر اُخوّت کے لئے میخانہ تھی

آج میخانہ ہے خالی ایک مستانہ نہیں

رو رہی ہے ریگِ صحرا کوئی دیوانہ نہیں

۳

یہ حقیقت ہے کہ بھارت میں اُجالا تجھ سے تھا

ہند کا رُتبہ زمانے میں نرالا تجھ سے تھا

خدمتِ ہندوستاں میں کون اعلیٰ تجھ سے تھا

دہر میں ہندوستاں کا بول بالا تجھ سے تھا

قوم کی یکجہتیِ کامل تیرا پیغام ہے

جنگ کا حل غیر جانبدارئی اقوام ہے

۴

اِتّحادِ باہمی کا ارمغاں جاتا رہا

تھا ابھی موجود اب جانے کہاں جاتا رہا

وہ نشانِ عظمتِ ہندوستاں جاتا رہا

ایک ذاتِ منفرد میں اک جہاں جاتا رہا

ظلمتِ غم اور دل پر اب نہ طاری کیجئے

گلشنِ ہندوستاں کی آبیاری کیجئے

۵

مغربیت کے مقابل سُرخ رُو ہے شرقیت

دہر میں باقی رہے ظالم نہ ہو مظلومیت

اختتامِ جبر و محکومی، تلاشِ عافیت

امنِ عالم، اِتّحاد، باہمی جمہوریت

آج گلزارِؔ جہاں میں یہ نشاں نہرو کے ہیں

نسلِ آدم کے لئے کیا ارمغاں نہرو کے ہیں

अम्न-ए आलम के नक़ीब – आनंद मोहन गुल्ज़ार दहलवी

अए जवाहर लाल नहरू अम्न-ए अलम के नक़ीब

अए मसीहा दम, हकीम-ए क़ौम, मिल्लत के तबीब

दर्द-मंद-ए बेकसां अए बे-नवाऔं के हबीब

एक सदा सब से अलग है एक नवा सब के क़रीब

छोढ कर तू ख़ाक्दान-ए हस्ती-ए नापाएदार

एक हयात-ए जावदां से हो चुका है हमकिनार

तेरी हस्ती नस्ल-ए आदम के लिये नज़्राना थी

जुस्तजू-ए अम्न में सरगर्दां जूं परवाना थी

अक़्ल की बस्ती में जू-ए इश्क़ की दीवाना थी

और आलमगीर उख़व्वत के लिये मयख़ाना थी

आज मयख़ाना है ख़ाली, एक मस्ताना नहीं

रो रही है रेग-ए सहरा, कोई दीवाना नहीं

ये हक़ीक़त है के भारत में उजाला तुझ से था

हिन्द का रुत्बा ज़माने में निराला तुझ से था

ख़िद्मत-ए हिन्दोस्तां में कौन आला तुझ से था

दहर में हिन्दोस्तां का बोल बाला तुझ से था

क़ौम की यकजहती-ए कामिल तेरा पैग़ाम है

जंग का हल ग़ैर-जानिब्दारी-ए अक़्वाम है

इत्तेहाद-ए बाहमी का अर्मुग़ां जाता रहा

था अभी मौजूद अब जाने कहां जाता रहा

वो निशान-ए अज़्मत-ए हिन्दोस्तां जाता रहा

एक ज़ात-ए मुन्फ़रिद में एक जहां जाता रहा

ज़ुल्मत-ए ग़म और दिल पर अब न तारी कीजिये

गुल्शन-ए हिन्दोस्तां की आब्यारी कीजिये

मग़्रबिय्यत के मुक़ाबल सुर्ख़-रू है शर्क़ियत

दहर में बाक़ी रहे ज़ालिम न हो मज़्लूमियत

एख़्तेताम-ए जब्र ओ महकूमी, तलाश-ए आफ़ियत

अम्न-ए आलम, इत्तेहाद, बाहमी जम्हूरियत

आह गुल्ज़ार-ए जहां में ये निशां नहरू के हैं

नस्ल-ए आदम के लिये क्या अर्मुग़ां नहरू के हैं

O jawahar lal, herald of world peace, breath of healing, wise leader, healer of the nation, lover of the helpless, beloved of the voiceless. You had a unique and different message, yet a call that was near and dear to our hearts. You have left this transient world and arrived at the shores of eternal life.

Your life was a gift to humanity. You circled in search of world peace like the moth circles a lamp (in love of the flame). In the world of material knowledge you were passionate about the river of (universal) love. The tavern (of love) is deserted, there is none intoxicated with love. Desert sands weep because there is no passionate lover like majnuN wandering through the desert.
