My Poems

Shikwaaa (Reflection on Surah Mujadilah)

Sun li jis Khuda nay us aurat ki iltijaa

Kisi nay naa suni  uski naa janaa kisi nay us kaa haal

Who rab hi hai jo suntaa hia sab ki

Hui har dar say mayoos, khai har jaga say thokar

Kar diya khuda nay itna uski dua ko muatabar

Sabt ho gaya ta- hayaat us kaa zikr  is Quran may

Phir bhi to kehta hai kay nahi suni jaati meri pukaar

Who Rab to Maula  hai, Malik  hai , sab kaa hai Saazgaar

Who Rab hi hai jo sunta hia sab ki.

Teri aik aah bhi nai aik hichki nahi jo us nay naa suni

Hai teri shaa rag say qareeb who Rab hi tera gumgusaar

Teraa palunhaar, tera raazdaar, tera parwardigaar

Jitni bhi to kar lay sargoshi  apany aap say, apnay humnawa say

agar hai to akelaa to doosraa teray saath wuhi hai

agar hai to teen kay gruh may to chutaa wuhi hia

agar hai to paanch kay hujoom may to chatta wuhi hia

agar hia to bhari mehfil may to bhi woh wahi hai

phir kah lay jo kahna hia tujh ko kar lay jo karnaa hia

us roz Naa chupa sakay gaa to apna koi bhi shahkaar

hai agar to shaytaan kaa sathi to hai to us kay groh say

bhulwa day gaa zikr Us kaa ruswaa kar day gaa us jahan say

agar hai piyari tujh ko teray rab ki muhabbat saray jahan say

aisi muhabbat kay ho jis may dewaangi kay asaar

har awaaz, har tehreer, har khushi har gam say ho us ka
izhaar

yehi woh lagan hia jo barpa karay rooh may intishaar

muzayaan ho giya tera qalb ab imaan kay kahkashaan say

phir ho giya rab tujh say raazi aur to us ki razaa say.

kaam aa gai teri saari Qurbaani sorkhru hua tu Uski nigaa may

khatam ho giyaa us Jannat kaa intizaar,naseeb ho giya tera rab kaa deedar

Phir bhi to kehta hai kay nahi suni jaati meri Pukaar!

The purpose of Hijaab

My hijaab is very tight

My  jilbaab is pretty  long

Yet my heart is never at peace

Always fill with worries and griefs

Always engrossed in material  race

My hijaab is tight

My jilbaab is pretty long

Yet my tongue is filled with filthy phrases

My mouth always utter continuous complaints

But my hijaab is tight

My jilbaab is always on

Yet I can’t stand anyone’s praise

It makes me feel out of place

I want everyone to be my slave

But my hijaab is very tight

And my jilbaab is pretty long

My heart never aches at someone’s sorrows

My eyes never weep at anyone’s agony

My soul just belongs to me, selfish and hollow.

Yet My hijaab is tight

My jilbaab is pretty long

My dealings are seldom fair

My morals are merely modest

My words often cause a serious blow

Yet My hijaab is tight

My jilbaab is pretty long

My heart is full of doubts and desires

I can’t forget anyone’s faults, neither can I forgive

That’s the life I choose to live

But if you choose to live with all the above barriers

Then on the Day of Judgement you won’t have any saviors

Even though your hijaab was very tight

And your jilbaab was pretty long

It won’t be enough to save you from the real failure

Khushi
Tu kush kiyon nahi

har cheez hai teray paas
phir bhi kuch nahi hai teray paas

har bhook khi hai dawa mayassar
koi naa rahi adhoori teri piyaas

phir bhi hai kiyoon dil buhjha hua
sadyon say bana hua hai aik matam kada

us undhay say poch khushi kiya hia
jo undheron kay beech may baseerat rakhta hai

naa dekhtahy hua bhi sab kuch dekhta hai
jis nay quran ko samo liya apni rooh may

dekh saki na us ki aakh duniya ki roshni
par paa li us kay dil nay laa matnahi taazgi

pursakoon rakhti hai har dam usko jo
rahat dilaati hai har undheray lamhay ko

paali us dil nay na bujhnay wali shama ko
us roshni ko, us shanasai ko, us rahguzar ko

jo kanhi na bujh pai jo koi na day pai, jo koi na cheen pai
us lazawal khushi ki qeemat sirf wohi samaj paey
