اِنساں کو ملاؤ اِنساں سے ۔ آنند نارائن مُلّا

۱

اِنساں کا لہو پینے والا

مذہب سے بڑھ کر کوئی نہیں

ایمان کے قبرستاں سے بڑا

صحرائے خموشاں کوئی نہیں

۲

جاتی ہے نظر میری جب بھی

اِن ایمانی چہروں کی طرف

شیطان مجھے پیارا لگتا ہے

۳

یہ دین و دھرم کے نعرہ زن

یہ نقلی جعلی پیغمبر

یہ کرودھ، گھنا کے سوداگر

یہ بڑے بڑے ٹیکے والے

لمبی لمبی داڑھی والے

یہ پریم کا راگ الاپتے ہیں

یہ امن کا گیت سُناتے ہیں

اور خون بہاتے جاتے ہیں

۴

سیلاب ہو یا ہالا ڈولا

وہ جنگ ہو یا کوئی وبا

لے کر جانوں کے نذرانے

کچھ دیر تباہی کرتے ہیں

اور پھر غائب ہو جاتے ہیں

۵

لیکن ایماں کے یہ مرگھٹ

صدیوں سے کُھلی ہے اِن کی دُکاں

دم بھر کے لئے یہ بند نہیں

لے لے کر نام خداؤں کا

دِن رات ہے جاری کام اِن کا

۶

جلتی ہیں چتائیں پئے در پئے

لاشوں پر لاشیں آتی ہیں

اور یہ لاشوں کے بیوپاری

اپنے جسموں کی چربی کو

اپنے جِسموں کی بد بوُ کو

خرقوں کی تہوں کی آڑ لئے

ہر آن بڑھاتے جاتے ہیں

۷

اِن دھرم کے چوکیداروں سے

اِن مذہب کے رکھوالوں سے

اِن سورگ کے ٹھیکے داروں سے

اِن حوروں کے دلّالوں سے

اب لڑنے کا وقت آیا

۸

اللہ کو چھینو بندوں سے

ایشور کو چھڑاؤ بھگتوں سے

دنیا کو بچاؤ ایماں سے

اِنساں کو ملاؤ اِنساں سے

इन्सां को मिलाओ इन्सां से – आनंद नारायन  मुल्ला

इन्सां  का लहू पीने वाला

मज़हब से बढ़ कर कोइ नहीँ

ईमान के क़ब्रिस्तां से बड़ा

सेहरा-ए ख़मोशां कोई  नहीं

जाती है नज़र मेरी जब भी

इन ईमानी चेहरों की तरफ़

शैतान मुझे प्यारा लगता है

ये दीन ओ धर्म के नारा-ज़न

ये नक़्ली जाली पैग़म्बर

ये क्रोध, घना के सौदागर

ये बड़े बड़े टीके वाले

लंबी लंबी दाढ़ी वाले

ये प्रेम का राग अलापते  हैं

ये अमन का गीत सुनाते हैं

और ख़ून बहाते जाते हैं

सैलाब हो या हाला डोला

वो जंग हो या कोई वबा

ले कर जानवौं के नज़्राने

कुछ देर तबाही करते हैं

और फिर ग़ायब  हो जाते हैं

लैकिन ईमां के ये मरघट

सदियों से खुली है इन की दुकां

दम भर के लिए ये बंद नहीं

ले ले कर नाम ख़ुदाओं का

दिन रात है जारी काम इन का

जलती हैं चिताएं पै दर पै

लाशों पर लाशें आती हैं

और ये लाशों के बेयोपारी

अपने जिस्मौं की चर्बी को

अपने जिस्मौं की बदबू को

ख़रक़ौं  की तहौं की आड़ लिए

हर आन बढ़ाते जाते हैं

इन धरम के चौकीदारों से

इन मज़हब के रखवालों से

इन स्वर्ग के ठेकेदारों से

इन हूरों के दल्लालों  से

अब लड़ने का वक़्त आया है

अल्लाह को छीनो बन्दों से

ईश्वर को छुड़ाओ भगतों से

दुनिया को बचाओ ईमां से

इन्सां को मिलाओ इन्सां से
