jaane vaale-shaz tamkanat

vijay pargaoNkar singing.

جانے والے ۔ شاذ تمکنت

 

جانے والے تجھے کب دیکھ سکوں بارِ دِگر

روشنی آنکھ کی بہہ جائے گی آنسو بن کر

 

تو حصارِ در و دیوار لئے جائے کدھر

میرا کیا ہے کہ میں ہوں دشت بہ دِل خانہ بہ سر

 

کون جانے میری تنہائی پسندی کیا ہے

بس تیرے ذکر کا اندیشہ، تیرے نام کا ڈر

 

یوں بھی اشکوں کا دھندلکا تھا سجھائی نہ دیا

کِس نے لوٹا دمِ رُخصت سر و سامانِ سفر

 

کِس نے دیکھا ہے میرا شہرِ خموشانِ حیات

دِل کی وادی میں گذرنا ہے تو آہستہ گذر

 

رو رہا ہوں کہ تیرے ساتھ ہنسا تھا برسوں

ہنس رہا ہوں کہ کوئی دیکھ نہ لے دیدۂ تر

 

یہ میری زخم نصیبی، یہ تیری حیرانی

میں نے تیرے ہی اِشارے پہ تو ڈالی تھی سپر

 

ٹوٹ جائے گا نشہ دیکھ کوئی نا م نہ لے

آنکھ بھر آئے گی اِس طرح مِرا جام نہ بھر

 

میں نے ہر رات یہی سوچ کے آنسو پونچھے

منہ دِکھانا بھی ہے دنیا کو بہ ہنگامِ سحر

 

شاذ کو صبر عطا کر کے بڑا کام کیا

اُس نے کیا مانگا تھا، کیا پایا ہے ائے ربِّ ہنر

जाने वाले – शाज़ तम्कनत

 

जाने वाले तुझे कब देख सकूं बार-ए दिगर

रौशनी आंख की बह जाएगी आंसू बन कर

 

तू हिसार-ए दर ओ दीवार लिए जाए किधर

मेरा क्या है के मैं हूं दश्त बा दिल ख़ाना बा सर

 

कौन जाने मेरी तन्हाई पसन्दी क्या है

बस तेरे ज़िक्र का अंदेशा, तेरे नाम का डर

 

यूँ भी अश्कों का धुन्दल्का था सुझाई न दिया

किस ने लूट दम-रुख़्सत सर ओ सामान-ए सफ़र

 

किस ने देखा है मेरा शहर-ए ख़मोशान-ए हयात

दिल की वादी में गुज़ारना है तो आहिस्ता गुज़र

 

रो रहा हुं के तेरे साथ हंसा था बरसौं

हंस रहा हूं के कोई देख न ले दीदा-ए तर

 

ये मेरी ज़ख़्म नसीबी, ये तेरी हैरानी

मैं ने तेरे ही इशारे पे तो डाली थी सिपर

 

टूट जाएगा नाश देख कोई नाम न ले

आंख भर आएगी इस तरह मेरा जाम न भर

 

मैं ने हर रात यही सोच कले आंसू पोंछे

मुंह दिखाना भी है दुनिया को बा-हंगाम-ए सहर

 

शाज़ को सब्र अत कर के बड़ा काम किया

उस ने क्या मांगा था, क्या पाया है अए रब्ब-ए हुनर

But it is a good/great thing that he has been granted patience, so he can make peace with his own abilities.
