عیدالفطر ۔ پنڈت آنند موہن گلزارؔ دہلوی

۱

رحمتِ یزداں سے آیا آج پھر روزِ سعید

ہو مسلمانانِ عالم کو مبارک جشنِ عید

۲

مجلس آرا پھر ہوا عرشِ معلّیٰ پر کوئی

پھر گھٹاؤں سے ہوئی ہے ابروئے فطرت کی دید

۳

پھر محبّت اور رواداری کا چرچا عام ہے

پھر تعصُّب کی ہوئی کُل دہر میں مِٹّی پلید

۴

پھر تعصُّب کے لگی اک ضرب کاری پشت پر

پھر گلے ملتے ہیں رام و کرشن و الیاس و حمید

۵

مشترک تہذیب، یکجہتی، رواداری، سلوک

یہ وطن کی سالمیت کی ضمانت ہے سعید

۶

ہندوؤں نے دستِ اُلفت پھر بڑھایا خیر سے

پھر رواداری کی لائی عید دِلّی میں نوید

۷

بلبل و قمری ہوئے پھر آج یوں نغمہ سرا

جس طرح برگ و ثمر میں عشق کی گفت و شنید

۸

پھر یہاں اک متحد تہذیب جلوہ گر ہوئی

اب یہ ممکن ہے ملے پھر امن و برکت کی کلید

۹

گُل، چنبیلی، سرو، جوہی پھر اگر مل کر رہیں

پھر چمن بندی سے ہو گلشن میں بھی لطفِ مزید

۱۰

کیوں نہ مِل جُل کر منائیں ہندو و مسلم سبھی

وہ دیوالی ہو ہولی ہو کہ ہو عیدِ سعید

۱۱

خلقِ واحد، خالقِ واحد کی ہی تنویر ہے

وحدتِ نوعِ بشر کا ہند ہے داعی وحید

۱۲

یہ محبّت کا علمبردار اک تہوار ہے

ہے سبھی ہندو مسلمانوں کا یہ روزِ سعید

۱۳

آؤ شعر و شاعری کی پھر سجائیں محفلیں

نعت خوانی میں ملے گا عید کا لطفِ مزید

۱۴

شیخ کہتا ہے کوئی سیّد کوئی گلزارؔ کو

پنڈتِ کشمیر یہ بھی ہے عجب فردِ فرید

ईद-उल-फ़ित्र – पंडित आनन्द मोहन गुल्ज़ार देहलवी

रहमत-ए यज़्दां से आया आज फिर रोज़-ए स’ईद

हो मुसलमानान-ए आ’लम को मुबारक जश्न-ए ईद

मज्लिस-आरा फिर हुआ अर्श-ए मो’अल्ला पर कोई

फिर घटाऔं से हुई है अब्रू-ए फ़ित्रत की दीद

फिर मोहब्बत और रवादारी का चर्चा आ’म है

फिर ता’अस्सुब की हुई कुल दहर में मिट्टी पलीद

फिर ता’अस्सुब के लगी एक ज़र्ब-कारी पुश्त पर

फिर गले मिलते हैं राम ओ क्रिश्न ओ इल्यास ओ हमीद

मुश्तरिक तहज़ीब, यकजहती, रवादारी, सुलूक

ये वतन की सालमिय्यत की ज़मानत है स’ईद

हिन्दुऔं ने दस्त-ए उल्फ़त फिर बढ़ाया ख़ैर से

फिर रवादारी की लाई ईद दिल्ली में नवीद

बुल्बुल ओ क़ुम्री हुए फिर आज यूं नग़्मा-सरा

जिस तरह बर्ग ओ समर में इश्क़ की गुफ़्त ओ शनीद

फिर यहां एक मुत्तहद तहज़ीब जल्वा गर हुई

अब ये मुम्किन है मिले फिर अम्न ओ बर्कत की कलीद

गुल, चंबेली, सर्व, जूही फिर अगर मिल कर रहें

फिर चमन-बंदी से हो गुल्शन में भी लुत्फ़-ए मज़ीद

१०

क्यूं न मिल जुल कर मनाऐं हिन्दू ओ मुस्लिम सभी

वो दिवाली हो होली हो के हो ईद-ए स’ईद

११

ख़ल्क़-ए वाहद, ख़ालेक़-ए वाहद की ही तन्वीर है

वहदत-ए न’औ-ए बशर का हिन्द है दा’ई वहीद

१२

ये मोहब्बत का अलमबर्दार एक तहवार है

है सभी हिन्दू मुसल्मानौं का ये रोज़-ए स’ईद

१३

आओ शे’र ओ शा’एरी की फिर सजाएं महफ़िलें

ना’त-ख़्वानी में मिलेगा ईद का लुत्फ़-ए मज़ीद

१४

शैख़ कहता है कोई सय्यद कोई गुल्ज़ार को

पंडित-ए कश्मीर ये भी है अजब फ़र्द-ए फ़रीद
