raat

MORE BYIsmail Merathi

    gayā din huī shaam aa.ī hai raat

    ḳhudā ne ajab shai banā.ī hai raat

    na ho raat to din pahchān kyā

    uThā.e maza din insān kyā

    huī raat ḳhilqat chhuTī kaam se

    ḳhamoshī chhā.ī sar-e-shām se

    lage hone ab hot bāzār band

    zamāne ke sab kaar behvār band

    musāfir ne din bhar kiyā hai safar

    sar-e-shām manzil pe kholī kamar

    daraḳhtoñ ke patte bhī chup ho ga.e

    havā tham ga.ī peḌ bhī so ga.e

    añdherā ujāle pe ġhālib huā

    har ik shaḳhs rāhat tālib huā

    hue raushan ābādiyoñ meñ charāġh

    huā sab ko mehnat se hāsil farāġh

    kisān ab chalā khet ko chhoḌ kar

    ki ghar meñ kare chain se shab basar

    ġharīb aadmī jo ki mazdūr haiñ

    mashaqqat se jin ke badan chuur haiñ

    vo din bhar mehnat ke maare hue

    vo māñde thake aur haare hue

    nihāyat ḳhushī se ga.e apne ghar

    hue baal bachche bhī ḳhush dekh kar

    ga.e bhuul sab kām-dhandhe ġham

    savere ko uTTheñge ab tāza-dam

    kahāñ chain ye bādshah ko nasīb

    ki jis be-ġhamī se haiñ sote ġharīb

    gaya din hui sham aai hai raat

    KHuda ne ajab shai banai hai raat

    na ho raat to din ki pahchan kya

    uThae maza din ka insan kya

    hui raat KHilqat chhuTi kaam se

    KHamoshi si chhai sar-e-sham se

    lage hone ab hot bazar band

    zamane ke sab kar behwar band

    musafir ne din bhar kiya hai safar

    sar-e-sham manzil pe kholi kamar

    daraKHton ke patte bhi chup ho gae

    hawa tham gai peD bhi so gae

    andhera ujale pe ghaalib hua

    har ek shaKHs rahat ka talib hua

    hue raushan aabaadiyon mein charagh

    hua sab ko mehnat se hasil faragh

    kisan ab chala khet ko chhoD kar

    ki ghar mein kare chain se shab basar

    gharib aadmi jo ki mazdur hain

    mashaqqat se jin ke badan chur hain

    wo din bhar ki mehnat ke mare hue

    wo mande thake aur haare hue

    nihayat KHushi se gae apne ghar

    hue baal bachche bhi KHush dekh kar

    gae bhul sab kaam-dhandhe ka gham

    sawere ko uTThenge ab taza-dam

    kahan chain ye baadshah ko nasib

    ki jis be-ghami se hain sote gharib
