sijda-maKhdoom

سجدہ ۔ مخدوم محی الدین

 

پھر  اُسی شوخ کا خیال آیا

پھر نظر میں وہ خوش جمال آیا

پھر تڑپنے لگا دِل مضطر

پھر  برسنے لگاہے دیدہ تر

 

یاد آئیں وہ چاندنی را تیں

وہ ہنسی کھیل دِل لگی   باتیں

شب  تاریک ہے خموشی ہے

کلُ جہاں محوِ عیش کوشی ہے

 

لطف سجدوں میں آ رہا ہے مجھے

چھپ کے   کوئی بلا رہا ہے مجھے

چوڑیاں بج رہی ہیں ہاتوں کی

آئی آواز اُس کی باتوں کی

 

اُڑ رہاہے غبارِ نورِ  بدن

پھیلتی جا رہی ہے بوئے دہن

موجِ تسنیم و کیفِ خلدِ بر یں

جگمگاتابدن چمکتی جبیں

 

اپنے آنچل میں منہ چھپائے ہوئے

آ رہا ہے قدم بڑھائے ہوئے

نغمے پاز یب کے سناتے ہوئے

بختِ خفتہ میرے جگاتے ہوئے

 

عشوہ و ناز کا فسوں لے  کر

ساتھ اک لشکرِ  جنوں لے  کر

دور سے مسکراتاآتاہے

بجلیاں سی گرا تاآتاہے

 

وہ کہ رنگیں کرن تبسم   کی

اک مسلسل لڑی ترنم کی

پردہ تن میں راگ پوشیدہ

راگ وہ جس میں آگ پوشیدہ

 

بانسری سی  بجائے جاتا ہے

آگ تن میں لگاے جاتا ہے

ایک دنیاے رنگ و بو بن کر

خوں شدہ دِل کی آرزو بن کر

 

نئی دلہن کی تھرتھری بن کر

اُس کے ہونٹوں کی کپکپی بن کر

میرے دِل میں سما  گیاکوئی

میری ہستی پہ چھا گیاکوئی

सिजदा – मख़्दूम मोहिउद्दीन

 

फिर उसी शूख़ का ख़्याल आया

फिर नज़र में वो ख़ुश जमाल आया

फिर तड़पने लगा दिल ए मुज़्तर

फिर बरसने लगा है दीदा ए तर

 

याद आईं वो चांदनी रातें

वो हंसी खेल दिल लगी बातें

शब तारीक है, ख़मोशी है

कुल जहां मह्व ए ऐश कोशी है

 

लुत्फ़ सिज्दौं में आ रहा है मुझे

छुप के कोई बुला रहा है मुझे

चूड़ियाँ बज रही हैं हातों की

आई आवाज़ उस की बातों की

 

उड़ रहा है ग़ुबार ए नूर ए बदन

फैलती जा रही है बू ए दहन

मौज ए तसनीम ओ कैफ़ ए ख़ुल्द ए बरीं

जगमगाता बदन चमकती जबीं

 

अपने आंचल में मुंह छुपाए हुए

आ रहा है क़दम बढ़ाए हुए

नग़मे पाज़ेब के सुनाते हुए

बख़्त ए ख़ुफ़्ता मेरे जगाते हुए

 

ईश्वा ओ नाज़ का फ़ुसूँ लेकर

साथ एक लश्कर ए जुनूं लेकर

दूर से मुस्कुराता आता है

बिजलियाँ सि गिराता आता है

 

वो के रंगीन किरन तबस्सुम की

एक मुसलसिल लड़ी तरन्नुम की

पर्दा ए तन में राग पोशीदा

राग वो जिस में आग पोशीदा

 

बांसुरी सि बजाए जाता है

आग तन में लगाए जाता है

एक दुनिया ए रंग ओ बू बन कर

ख़ूं शुदा दिल की आरज़ू बन कर

 

नई दुल्हन की थरथरी बन कर

उस के होंटों की कपकपी बन कर

मेरे दिल में समा गया कोई

मेरी हस्ती पे छा गया कोई

sijda – maKhdoom mohiuddin

Click here for overall comments and on any passage for word meanings and discussion.  The night is dark and silent and the world is engrossed in its luxuries but the poet/lover is happy in sijda (late evening prayer is considered especially devotional/aspicious and deserving of special reward). The reward of that prayer is “mauj e tasneem”. tasneem is a river in paradise and also “the tranquility of seventh heaven”. maKhdoom equates sijda to expression of love of the beloved.
