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!

  1. Have read the translation, I’m sure the Urdu version is more beautiful, but at least I get the gist of it. My older daughter is learning basic Urdu at madrasa, she loves it. I think I should start learning it too! Thank you so much for including the translated version, means a lot.
