Mujh se pehli si Mohabbat….. A masterpiece by the great poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz

 

Mujhse pehli si mohabbat mere mehboob na maang
Maine samhja tha ke tu hai tou darakhshaan hai hayaat
Tera gham hai tou gham-e-dehar ka jhagraa kya hai?
Teri soorat se hai aalam mein bahaaron ko sabaat
Teri aankhon ke siwa duniya mein rakha kya hai?Tu jo mil jaaye tou taqdeer nigoon ho jaaye
Yun na tha main, na faqat chaaha tha yun ho jaaye
Aur bhi dukh hain zamaane mein mohabbat ke siwa
Rahatein aur bhi hain wasl ki raahat ke siwaa!

Anginat sadiyon ke taareek bahimaana talism
Resham-o-atlas-o-kamkhwaab mein bunwaaye hue
Jaa-ba-jaa bikte hue kucha-o-bazaar mein jism
Khaak mein luthre hue khoon mein nehlaaye hue
Jism nikle hue amraaz ke tunnooron se
Peep behti hui galte hue nasooron se

Laut jati hai idhar ko bhi nazar kya keeyje
Ab bhi dilkash hai tera husn magar kya keejye?

Mujh se pehli si mohabbbat mere mehboon na maang!!!
Aur bhi dukh hain zamaane mein mohabbat ke siwa
Raahatein aur bhi hain wasl ki raahat ke siwa!!!
Mujhse pehli si mohabbat mere mehboob na maang!

AMMI KI YAD MEIN!

17 years have passed since that tragic day, but every year I feel tormented on the 10th of February! May Allah grant my parents the highest rank in Jannnat ul Firdaus Ameen

Yasmin Elahi

10th February comes every year to refresh memories of Ammi,s sudden demise. The initial deep pain has over the years changed into a dull thud, embedded deep inside the heart….but memories of her charismatic personality, strong values and unending care are as fresh as ever! Rest in peace Ammi, you and your love lives on in our hearts. May Allah grant you the highest rank in Jannah! Ameen

Today I feel like reposting the nazm I wrote for you immediately after you left this mortal world. The pain, anguish and helplessness of those days have subsided over the years, but I miss you Ammi  and I love you.. more than I can express in words!

  Ae Maan teri khaamosh si hastee mere lye

Kisi neimat, kisi daulat se nahin thee kum!

Tere seene se jo uthti thi mumta ki mehak

Dil ke zakhmon ko wo marhum se nahin thi…
