Sahir Ludhianvi
By Nadia

—————–

maiN ne jitna Sahir ko paRha hai utna hi pasand kiya hai. mere khayaal se Sahir ka shumaar un shayeroN meN hota hai jin ka naam kisii ta’arruf ka mohtaaj nahiiN. kaun bhool sakta hai in ‘linoN’ ko?

“maiN pal do pal ka shayar hooN, pal do pal meri kahaani hai
pal do pal meri hasti hai, pal do pal meri jawaani hai”

Sahir jaisa pur.andaaz shaayar shaayad dobaara nahiN aaye ga. inki shayari pe inka hi likha hua she’r kya khoob fit hota hai. likhte haiN:

“duniya ne tajrubaat-o-hawaadis ki shakl meiN
jo kuchh mujhe diya hai woh lauTa raha hooN maiN”

inki shayari meiN phooloN aur qaus-e-qazaaH ka zikr nahiiN aur na hi titliyoN ki kahiiN baat hai. inki shayari meiN aik azm hai, aik walwala hai, diloN ko garma dene waala walwala. aik ranj hai, aik soch hai. itne saada alfaaz meiN koi itni mushkil baat itni asaani se bhi kah sakta hai?

“apne seene se lagaaye hue ummeed ki laash
muddastoN zeest ko nashaad kiya hai maiN ne
tu ne to aik hi sadme se kiya tha dochaar
dil ko har tarah se barbaad kiya hai maiN ne”

jahaaN inhoN ne apne watan aur watan baasiyoN ke liye likha hai wahaN inhoN ne “kisii” ke husn ke qaseede bhi likhe haiN. aksar jab Sahir ki diloN ko garma dene aur kuchh kar uThne waali shaayari ke baad inki likhi aisi nazm parho jo kisii sinf-e-naazuk se mukhaatib ho to hairat hoti hai ke kyaa yah wohi shayar hai. itne lateef jazbaat?

“tapte dil par yooN girti hai
teri nazar se payaar ki shabnam
jalte hue jungle par jaise
bar.khaa barse, ruk ruk tham tham”

Sahir ne nazm ko aik naya andaaz diya hai, nihaayet saada alfaaz ke istemaal ne inki nazmoN ko mere jaise kam faham logoN ki samjh ke liye bhi aasaan bana diya hai. yahi saada-pan inki nazmoN ko itna maqbool banaata hai. maiN ne inki aksar nazmoN meN aik be-basi mahsuus ki hai. mohabbat meN taRapte hue dil ki be-basi, jis ke paas siwa muhabbat ke kuchh chaara nahiN, jo kisii jaal meN phaNse parinde ki tarah khuli hawa meN saans to leta hai magar aazaad nahiN.

“tang aa chuke haiN kashmash-e-zindagi se ham
Thukra na deN jahaN ko kahiN be-dili se ham
lo aaj ham ne toRh diya rishtay-e-ummeed
lo ab kabhi gila na kareN ge kissi se ham
gar zindagi meN mil gaye phir ittefaaq se
puuchheN ge apna haal teri be-basi se ham”

Sahir ke qalam ke likhe hue gaane aap bhi sunte haiN aur maiN bhi. bas hameN yahi maaloom nahiN ke itne khoobsurat bol likhne waale shayar ka kya naam hai.
inke chand mashoor-e-zamaana geetoN ke chand bol:

  • jurm-e-ulfat pe hameN log saza dete haiN
  • jaane woh kaise log the jin ke pyar ko pyar mila
  • paaooN chhu lene do phooloN ko inaayet ho gi
  • jo waada kiya woh niBhaana parhe ga
  • naghma-o-sher ki soGhaat kise paish karooN
  • bhoole se mohabbat kar baiTha, nadaaN tha bechaara dil hi to hai
  • abhi na jaao choRh kar ke dil abhi bhara nahiN..
  • zindagi bhar nahiN bhuule gi woh barsaat ki raat
  • jo baat tujh meN hai, teri tasveer meN nahiN
  • jise tu qabool kar le, woh adaa kahaaN se laaooN
  • kabhi kabhi mere dil meN kheyaal aata hai
  • jeevan ke safar meN raahi milte haiN bichaRh jaane ko
  • mere dil meN aaj kya hai tu kahe to maiN bata dooN
  • milti hai zindagi meN mohabbat kabhi kabhi
  • tum apna ranj-o-gham apni parishaani mujhe de do
  • tum agar mujh ko na chaaho to koi baat nahiN
  • tum agar saath dene ka waada karo

    Sahir was one great person. I had a chance to see him and Mr. Kaifi Azmi in one mushaira. Hearing them with their nazms, is an unforgetable opportunity.

    kisi ne dekh liya tha badi mohabbat se,
    wo ek lamha meri zindagi hai muddat se,
    khuda k waste mere kareeb a jao,
    dara raha hai zamana mujhe qayamat se,
    yeri zameen ko dozakh bana ke chode ga
    wo aadmi jo nikala gaya hai jannat se

    Jo kahani teri hai wahi meri bhi rahi,
    Door jannat teri bhi thi meri bhi rahi.

    Yun dekh kar chehra apna socha maine,
    Ye tasveer jo maine dekhi teri si lagi.

    Ab bahot der ho gayi laut aao bhi,
    Tere baad ab ye zindagi adhuri si lagi.

    Tumhein bhi meri jaane ki jaldi hi rahi,
    Intezaar to kar leta meri maut dekhi bhi nahin.

    tumne to keh diya mohabbatt nahi mili,
    Aur hamain to ye bhi kehne ki mohlat nahi mili,
    Teri rah main bejar yun hua hum ke ,
    sab kuch mila lekin sukoon ki dualat nahi mili.

    Maadaam

    aap bevajah pareshaan-sii kyo.n hai.n maadaam
    log kahate hai.n to phir Thiik hii kahate ho.nge
    mere ehabaab ne tahaziib na siikhii hogii
    mere maahaul me.n i.nsaan na rahate ho.nge

    nuur-e-saramaayaa se hai ruu-e-tamaddun kii jilaa
    ham jahaa.N hai.n vahaa.N tahaziib nahii.n pal sakatii
    mufalisii hiss-e-lataafat ko miTaa detii hai
    bhuuk aadaab ke saa.Nche me.n nahii.n Dhal sakatii

    log kahate hai.n to logo.n pe t’ajjub kaisaa
    sach to kahate hai.n ki naadaaro.n kii izzat kaisii
    log kahate hai.n – magar aap abhii tak chup hai.n
    aap bhii kahiye Gariibo.n me.n sharaafat kaisii

    nek maadaam! Bahut jald vo daur aayegaa
    jab hame.n ziist ke adavaar parakhane ho.nge
    apanii zillat kii qasam, aap kii azamat kii qasam
    hamako taa’ziim ke me_aar parakhane ho.nge

    mere ehabaab ne tahaziib na siikhii hogii
    mere maahaul me.n i.nsaan na rahate ho.nge

    Sahir ka jazba,
    Sahir k Lafz,
    Sahir ki Zindagi,
    Sahir ki Mohabbat,
    sahir ka Junoo’n,
    Sahir itself was an complete personality…

    Sahir k Kalaam me jo suku’n,
    wo ik ajeeb si kaifiyat ka taari ho jaana,
    wo ik junu’n jo khatam na ho,
    wo ik saadgi jo dilkash ho,
    wo ik sawaal jiska jawab mosulnahi,
    wo ik taazgi jo gulo ko bhi mayassar nahi,
    wo ik khayal jo jiska tasavvur hi shaad kr de…..

    Lafz agar aur hote to bayaa’n krne k liye to itna hai k bahut si shab guzar jaye’n magar Sahir k liye sirf Lafz hi kaafi nahi hote unko bayaa’n krne k liye…..

    sahir ko jo Sher mujhe sbse zyada azeez hai wo haai-

    Itne qareeb aa k bhi kya jaane kis liye,
    Kuch ajnabi se aap hain kuch ajnabi se hum….

    Duniya ke Azimo-tarin Inquilabi Shayar Janab Abdul Hayee Sahab Urf Sahir Ludhiyanvi ko me mera salam. Aapke shayri me wo nashtar hai jo sang Dil ko bhi tarash deta hai.
    Mohabbat Trk ki maine, Gareban See Liya maine,
    Zamane ab to Khush ho, Zaher ye bhi pee liya maine,
    Abhi Zinda Hun Lekin Sonchta rahta hun khilwat me
    Ki ab tak kis tamanna ke sahare jee liya maine,
    Unhe apna nahi sakta, magar itna bhi kya kam hai
    Ki kuchh muddat hasin khwabon me khokar jee liya maine
    Bas ab to damane dil Chhor do bekar umeedon,
    Bahot Dukh Sah Liye Maine, Bahot din jee liya maine.
