Baat Karni Mushkil:

Baat Karni Mushkil Kabhi Aisi Toh Na Thi,
Jaisi Ab Hai Teri Mehfil Kabhi Aaisi Toh Na Thi;

Le Geya Cheen Ke Kaun Aaj Tera Sabr-o-Qarar,
Be-Qarari Tujhe Ai Dil Kabhi Aaisi Toh Na Thi;

Teri Aankhon Mein Khudaa Jane Kya-Kya Jaadu,
Ki Tabiyat Meri Mayal Kabhi Aaisi Toh Na Thi;

Kya Sbab Tu Jo Bigarta Hai 'Zafar' Se Har Baar,
Kho Teri Hoor Shamil Kabhi Aaisi Toh Na Thi!
~ Zafar Iqbal
Main To Jhonka Hun:

Main To Jhonka Hun Hawa Ka Uda Le Jaunga,
Jaagti Rehna Tujhe Tujhse Chura Le Jaunga;

Ho Ke Kadmon Pe Nicchawar Phool Ne But Se Kaha,
Khak Mein Mil Ke Bhi Mein Khushboo Bacha Le Jaunga;

Kaun Si Shay Mujhko Pahunchayegi Tere Shehar Tak,
Yeh Pata To Tab Chalega Jab Pata Le Jaunga;

Koshishein Mujhko Mitaane Ki Bhale Ho Kamyaab,
Mit-te Mit-te Bhi Main Mitne Ka Maza Le Jaunga;

Shoharatein Jinki Wajah Se Dost Dushman Ho Gaye,
Sab Yeh Reh Jaayengi Main Saath Kya Le Jaunga!
~ Kumar Vishwas
Dil Mein Na Ho Jurrat:

Dil Mein Na Ho Jurrat To Mohabbat Nahi Milti,
Khairat Mein Itni Badi Daulat Nahi Milti;

Kuchh Log Yun Hi Shehar Mein Hum Se Bhi Khafa Hain,
Har Ek Se Apni Bhi Tabiyat Nahi Milti;

Dekha Tha Jise Maine Koi Aur Tha Shaayad,
Woh Kaun Hai Jis Se Teri Surat Nahi Milti;

Hanste Hue Chehron Se Hai Baazaar Ki Zinat,
Rone Ko Yahan Vaise Bhi Fursat Nahi Milti!
~ Nida Fazli
Yeh Na Thi Hamari Qismat:

Yeh Na Thi Hamari Qismat, Ki Visaal-e-Yaar Hota,
Agar Aur Jeete Rehte, Yahi Intezaar Hota;

Koi Mere Dil Se Puche, Tere Teer-e-Nimkash Ko,
Yeh Khalish Kahan Se Hoti, Jo Jigar Ke Paar Hota;

Yeh Kahan Ki Dosti Hai, Ki Bane Hain Dost Naaseh,
Koi Chhaar-Saaz Hota, Koi Gham Gusaar Hota;

Kahu Kis Se Main, Ki Kya Hai Shab-e-Gham Buri Bala Hai,
Mujhe Kya Bura Tha Marna, Agar Ek Baar Hota;

Yeh Masaail-e-Tasavuff, Yeh Tere Bayaan 'Ghalib',
Tujhe Hum Wali Samjhte, Jo Na Badaa-Khaar Hota!
~ Mirza Ghalib
Wafa Ke Baab Mein:

Wafa Ke Baab Mein Ilzaam-e-Aashiqui Na Liya,
Ki Teri Baat Ki Aur Tera Naam Bhi Na Liya;

Khushaa Wo Log Ki Mehroom-e-Iltefaat Rahe,
Tere Karam Ko Ba-Andaaz-e-Saadgi Na Liya;

Tumhare Baad Kayi Haath Dil Ke Simat Barhe,
Hazaar Shukar Girebaan Ko Hum Ne Si Na Liya;

Tamaam Masti-o-Tishnaa-Labi Ke Hungame,
Kisi Ne Sang Uthaya, Kisi Ne Meena Liya;

'Faraz' Zulm Hai Itni Khud Aitmaadi Bhi;
Ki Raat Bhi Thi Andheri, Charaagh Bhi Na Liya!
~ Ahmad Faraz
Aap Jin Ke Qarib:

Aap Jin Ke Qarib Hote Hain,
Vo Baḍe Ḳhush-Nasib Hote Hain;

Jab Tabiyat Kisi Par Aati Hai,
Maut Ke Din Qarib Hote Hain;

Mujh Se Milna Phir Aap Ka Milna,
Aap Kis Ko Nasib Hote Hain;

Zulm Seh Kar Jo Uff Nahi Karte,
Un Ke Dil Bhi Ajeeb Hote Hain;

Ishq Mein Aur Kuch Nahi Milta,
Saikḍon Gham Naseeb Hote Hain;

Nunh Ki Kadar Koi Kya Jaane,
Kahin Aise Adeeb Hote Hain!
~ Pankaj Udhas
Parakhna Mat Parakhne Mein:

Parakhna Mat Parakhne Mein Koi Apna Nahi Rehta,
Kisi Bhi Aaine Mein Der Tak Chehra Nahi Rehta;

Bade Logon Se Milne Mein Hamesha Faansla Rakhna,
Jahan Dariya Samandar Mein Mile Dariya Nahi Rehta;

Hazaaron Sher Mere So Gaye Kaghaz Ki Qabron Mein,
Ajab Maa Hun Koi Bachha Mera Zinda Nahi Rehta;

Tumhara Shehar Toh Bilkul Naye Andaaz Wala Hai,
Hamare Shehar Mein Bhi Koi Hum Sa Nahi Rehta;

Mohabbat Ek Khushbu Hai Hamesha Saath Chalti Hai,
Koi Insaan Tanhayi Mein Bhi Tanha Nahi Rehta;

Koi Baadal Hare Mausam Ka Phir Elaan Karta Hai,
Khiza Ke Baag Mein Jab Ek Bhi Patta Nahi Rehta!
~ Bashir Badr
Sari Basti Me Ye Jadoo:

Sari Basti Mein Ye Jadoo Nazar Aaye Mujhko,
Jo Daricha Bhi Khule Tu Nazar Aaye Mujhko;

Sadiyon Ka Rat Jaga Meri Raaton Mein Aa Geya,
Mein Ek Haseen Shakhs Ki Baaton Mein Aa Geya;

Jab Tassavur Mera Chupke Se Tujhe Chu Aaye,
Der Tak Apne Badan Se Teri Khushboo Aaye;

Gustaakh Hawaaon Ki Shikaayat Na Kiya Kar,
Udd Jaaye Dupatta Toh Khanak Odh Liya Kar;

Tum Pucho Aur Main Na Bataun Aise Toh Halaat Nahi,
Ek Zara Sa Dil Toota Hai Aur Toh Koi Baat Nahi;

Raat Ke Sannate Mein Humne Kya-Kya Dhokhe Khaaye Hain,
Apna Hi Dil Jab Dhadka Toh Hum Samjhe Wo Aaye Hain!
~ Qateel Shifai
Kaam Sab Ghair Zaruri Hain:

Kaam Sab Ghair Zaroori Hain Jo Sab Karte Hain,
Aur Hum Kuch Nahi Karte Hain Lekin Ghazab Karte Hain;

Hum Pe Hakim Ka Koi Hukm Nahi Chalta Hai,
Hum Qalandar Hain, Shahanshaah Laqab Karte Hain;

Aap Ki Nazron Mein Suraj Ke Hai Jitni Azmat,
Hum Chiraagon Ka Bhi Utna Hi Adab Karte Hain;

Dekhiye Jisko Use Dhun Hai Masihaai Ki,
Aaj-Kal Sheharon Ke Bimar Matab Karte Hain!
Ye Ehtiyaate Mohabbat:

Ye Ehtiyaate Mohabbat Toh Jee Nahi Jaati,
Ki Teri Baat Tujhi Se Kahi Nahi Jaati;

Teri Nigaah Bhi Kaisi Ajab Kahani Hai,
Mere Alawa Kisi Se Padhi Nahi Jaati;

Tujhe Pata Bhi Hai Suraj Tere Ilaake Mein,
Kahin-Kahin Toh Kabhi Roshni Nahi Jaati;

Ajab Mizaj Hai In Khandani Logon Ka,
Tabaah Ho Ke Bhi Dariya Dili Nahi Jaati!
~ Wasim Barelvi
