ہلالِ عید ۔ مہندر سنگھ بیدی سحرؔ

۱

اے ہلالِ عید اے اہلِ عقیدت کے اِمام

تجھ کو پہنچے ایک مجبورِ محبّت کا سلام

دیکھ کر تجھ کو سبھی دِلشاد ہیں مسروُر ہیں

سب کے چہرے پُر ضیا، قلب و جگر پُر نوُر ہیں

۲

بادۂ وحدانیت کا اِک چھلکتا جام ہے

تو وہ ساقی ہے کہ جس کا فیض سب پر عام ہے

قلبِ مومن کے لئے سرچشمۂ ایمان ہے

اور پھر ایمان ہے کیا، اِس بات کا عرفان ہے

۳

تیرے دم سے ہے تر و تازہ عبادت کا وجود

اُنس کا، اخلاق کا، مہر و مُروّت کا وجود

آج کے دِن تو مِٹا دیتا ہے سب ناز و نیاز

دیکھ کر تجھ کو گلے ملتے ہیں محمود و ایاز

۴

ایک ہی صف میں کھڑے ہوتے ہیں سب شاہ و گدا

تیرے در پر آج کے دِن ہیں سبھی ہم مرتبہ

عید میں مُفلس بھی لگتے ہیں گلے زردار کے

اور مجبوروں پہ کھُل جاتے ہیں در مختار کے

۵

آج کے دِن تو مِٹا دیتا ہے فرقِ نسل و رنگ

آج کے دِن صلح میں تبدیل ہو جاتی ہے جنگ

آج کے دِن ختم ہو جاتے ہیں سب فسق و فساد

غیریت، بیگانہ پن، مکر و ریا، بغض و عناد

۶

آج کے دِن تو مِٹا دیتا ہے فرقِ این و آں

سبزۂ پامال پر ہنستا نہیں سروِ رواں

یوں تو دنیا کے ہر اِک گوشے پہ ہے تیری نظر

اے ہلالِ عید کیا تجھ کو نہیں اِس کی خبر

عید کے اگلے ہی دِن تک وہ سماں رہتا نہیں

وہ زمیں رہتی نہیں، وہ آسماں رہتا نہیں

۷

یہ عقیدت، یہ مُروّت، یہ رواداری، یہ میل

بن کے رہ جاتے ہیں سارے یہ فقط اِک دِن کا کھیل

پھر رگِ مجبور پر خنجر وہی مختار کا

پھر وہی مُفلس پہ سب جور و ستم زردار کا

۸

پھر وہی رشک و رقابت، پھر وہی فسق و فساد

پھر وہی بیگانہ پن، غیبت وہی بغض و عناد

پھر وہی حفظِ مراتب، فرقِ محمود و ایاز

پھر وہی کِبر و رعونت، پھر وہی ناز و نیاز

۹

عید کے دِن کا سماں قائم سدا رہتا نہیں

تو یہ سب کچھ دیکھتا ہے اور کچھ کہتا نہیں

اے ہلالِ عید، اے عرش آشنا عالی مقام

ایک دِن، صرف ایک دِن کے واسطے یہ اہتمام

۱۰

اے ہلالِ عید، اے صد راحتِ قلب و جگر

عید کے دِن کا سماں ہو اور اِتنا مختصر

اے ہلالِ عید، اے سیّارۂ ہفت آسماں

کر نہیں سکتا اگر تو اِس فضا کو جاوِداں

۱۱

آ تو پھر مِل کر کریں خالق کی خدمت میں دعا

اے خدائے دو جہاں، اے مالکِ ارض و سما

کرشن کے، نانک کے، عیسیٰ کے، محمّد کے خدا

تو صفات و ذات سے ہے ماسوا و ماورا

۱۲

اپنے بندوں کو ہدایت دے کہ سب مِل کر رہیں

جو سُنیں دِل سے سُنیں وہ جو کہیں دِل سے کہیں

ظاہر و باطن ہوں یکساں، سب کی نیّت نیک ہو

راستے کتنے ہی ہوں، منزل سبھی کی ایک ہو

۱۳

عید کے دِن ہی فقط ایسا سماں آیا تو کیا

رہگزاروں پر اگر ابرِ رواں آیا تو کیا

جو نویدِ جانفزا جو مژدۂ جاوید دے

اے خدا، میرے خدا، دنیا کو ایسی عید دے

हिलाल-ए ईद – मोहिंदर सिंघ बेदी सहर

अए हिलाल-ए ईद, अए अहल-ए अक़ीदत के इमाम

तुझ को पहुंचे एक मज्बूर-ए मोहब्बत का सलाम

देख कर तुझ को सभी दिल्शाद हैं मस्रूर हैं

सब के चेहरे पुर ज़िया, क़ल्ब ओ जिगर पुर नूर हैं

बादा-ए वहदानियत का एक छलक्ता जाम है

तू वो साक़ी है के जिस का फ़ैज़ सब पर आम है

क़ल्ब-ए मोमिन के लिए सरचश्मा-ए ईमान है

और फिर ईमान है क्या, इस बात का इर्फ़ान है

तेरे दम से है तर ओ ताज़ा इबादत का वुजूद

उन्स का, अख़्लाक़ का, महर ओ मुरव्वत का वुजूद

आज के दिन तू मिटा देता है सब नाज़ ओ नियाज़

देख कर तुझ को गले मिलते हैं महमूद ओ अयाज़

एक ही सफ़ में खढे होते हैं सब शाह ओ गदा

तेरे दर पर आज के दिन हैं सभी हम-मर्तबा

ईद में मुफ़्लिस भि लगते हैं गले ज़रदार के

और मज्बूरौं पे खुल जाते हैं दर मुख़्तार के

आज के दिन तू मिटा देता है फ़र्क़-ए नस्ल ओ रंग

आज के दिन सुलह में तब्दील हो जाती है जंग

आज के दिन ख़त्म हो जाते हैं सब फ़स्क़ ओ फ़साद

ग़ैरियत, बेगाना पन, मक्र ओ रिया, बुग़्ज़ ओ अनाद

आज के दिन तू मिटा देता है फ़र्क़-ए ईन ओ आं

सब्ज़ा-ए पामाल पर हंस्ता नहीं सर्व-ए रवां

यूं तो दुनिया के हर एक गोशे पे है तेरी नज़र

अए हिलाल-ए ईद क्या तुझ को नहीं इस की ख़बर

ईद के अग्ले ही दिन तक वो समां रहता नहीं

वो ज़मीं रहती नहीं वो आस्मां रहता नहीं

ये अक़ीदत, ये मुरव्वत, ये रवादारी ये मेल

बन के रह जातो हैं सारे ये फ़क़त एक दिन का खेल

फिर रग-ए मज्बूर पर ख़ंजर वही मुख़्तार का

फिर वही मुफ़्लिस पे सब जोर ओ सितम ज़र्दार का

फिर वही रश्क ओ रिक़ाबत, फिर वही फ़स्क़ ओ फ़साद

फिर वही बेगाना पन, ग़ैबत वही बुग़्ज़ ओ अनाद

फिर वही हिफ़्ज़-ए मरातिब, फ़र्क़-ए महमूद ओ अयाज़

फिर वही किब्र ओ रऊनत, फिर वही नाज़ ओ नियाज़

ईद के दिन का समां क़ाएम सदा रहता नहीं

तू ये सब कुछ देखता है और कुछ कहता नहीं

अए हिलाल-ए ईद, अए अर्श आश्ना, आली-मक़ाम

एक दिन, सिर्फ़ एक दिन के वास्ते ये एहतेमाम

१०

अए हिलाल-ए ईद अए सद-राहत-ए क़ल्ब ओ जिगर

ईद के दिन का समां हो और इतना मुख़्तसिर

अए हिलाल-ए ईद, अए सय्यारा-ए हफ़्त आस्मां

कर नहीं सकता अगर तू इस फ़ज़ा को जावदां

११

आ तो फिर मिल कर करें ख़ालेक़ कि ख़िद्मत में दुआ

अए ख़ुदा-ए दो जहां, अए मालिक-ए अर्ज़ ओ समा

क्रिश्न के, नानक के, ईसा के, मुहम्मद के ख़ुदा

तू सिफ़ात ओ ज़ात से है मासवा ओ मावरा

१२

अपने बन्दौं को हिदायत दे के सब मिल कर रहें

जो सुनें दिल से सुनें, जो कहें दिल से कहें

ज़ाहर ओ बातिन हों यक्सां, सब कि निय्यत नेक हो

रास्ते कितने हि हों, मंज़िल सभी कि एक हो

१३

ईद के दिन ही फ़क़त ऐसा समां आया हो क्या

रहगुज़ारौं पर अगर अब्र-ए रवां आया तो क्या

जो नवीद-ए जांफ़िज़ा, जो मुज़्शदा-ए जावीद दे

अए ख़ुदा, मेरे ख़ुदा, दुनिया को ऐसी ईद दे
