Jab waadae tifli ka wafaa kar chuke Shabbir
Efforts: Syed-Rizwan Rizvi

shah ast Hussain baade shah ast Hussain
deen ast Hussain dee panah ast Hussain

jab waadae tifli ko wafaa kar chuke Shabbir
sar markae karbobala kar chuke Shabbir
ummat ke liye haq pe dua kar chuke Shabbir
khanjar ke tale shukre khuda kar chuke Shabbir
teero ne sameta shahe bekas ka musalla
tharraee zameen kaap utha arshe moalla

jo kaam tha bhai ka behen ne wo sambhala
jalte hue khaime me se bhatije ko nikala
dam tod gaya saamne har god ka pala
lab tak na phir aaya dile betaab pe nala
aylaan kuna naaraae taqbeer thi zainab
haa naasira-e-maqsade Shabbir thi zainab

chaadar jo chini saakiye kausar ko pukara
qaasim ko sada di ali akbar ko pukara
har zulm pe abbas e dilawar ko pukara
jhule me lagi aag to asgar ko pukara
roee kabhi khaimo ki kabhi aag bhujaaee
beemar bhaije ki kabhi aas bandhaaee

al kissa namudaar hui shaame garibaa
taarikiyo me doob gaya ganje shaheeda
ek adh jale khaime me haram baithe the girya
sehme hue maasoom the zainab thi paresha
roti thi koi bibi to deti thi dilaase
chauk uthe na maasoom abhi soye hai pyaase

phir uthi badhi azm se haider ki dulaari
ek chauk jale khaime ki haatho me uthaaee
sunsaan beyabaan me pehle to nazar ki
phir ne lagi phir khaime ke chau girda wo bibi
allah re himmat badi zeeshaan thi zainab
soe hue bachcho ki nigehbaan thi zainab

nagah sawaar ek nazar saamne aaya
tharra ne lagi jaane dile fatema zehra
boli ke khabar daar wahi rok le ghoda
ro ro ke abhi soye hai maasoom taras kha
keh de umar-e-saad se lillah ye jaakar
kal din ke ujaale me hame loot le aakar
zainab ki sadaa sunke bhi thehra na jab sawaar

tab binte ali aage badhi gaiz me ek baar
chillaaee ke ae baaniye bedado jafaakaar
sunta nahi tu kehti hu jaa ay jigar afgaar
anjaam na rukne kabhi ab jaan le zaalim
beti hu ali ki mujhe pehchaan le zaalim
ye kehte hue daal diya haath anaa par 

ab chahiye kya loot liya jab ke bhara ghar
hu laakh garibul watano bekaso muztar
majboor samajhna na mujhe phir bhi sitamgar
gar khauf bazid apne iraade pe jo tu hai
in baazuo me fatema zehra ka lahu hai
aage jo badaa hogi qayamat abhi barpa

faryaad meri pohche gi ta arshe moalla
aur sooe najaf maine agar haath uthaya
aajaaenge imdad ko fauran mere baba
sar tan pe na hoga jo zara be adabi ki
zainab hai mera naam nawaasi hu nabi ki

beti ki baat sunke wo aswaar pukara
zainab mai tera baap hu pehchaan khudara
kin aakho se dekhu ye jigar soz nazara
tu dukh sahe aur mujhko ho aaraam gawara
shab bhar mai tera khaimo ka darbaan rahoonga
ta subh ha issi dashtme mehmaan rahoonga

dukhiyaari ne jab gaur se chehre pe nazar ki
nazdeeke rakaab aaee kadam choom ke boli
baba mere kyu aan ke pehle na khabar li
maalum hai kya aap ki aulad pe guzri
gam khaane ko ye bekaso laachaar hai baaki
mardo me fakat aabide beemaar hai baaki

jab sar mere bhai ka kata aap kaha the
jab khaatema akbar ka hua aap kaha the
besheer ke jab teer laga aap kaha the
jab sar se chini meri rida aap kaha the
dhaaras ke liye beti ki ab aaye ho baba
sara mera ghar lut gaya tab aaye ho baba

mai jab huwi awara watan aap kaha the
luta gaya zehra ka chaman aap kaha the
baandhi meri aadaa ne aadaa ne rasan aap ka the
tukde hua abbas ka tan aap kaha the
bewa hui ek shab ki dulhan aap kaha the
aajaa te to iss tarha na taqdeer badalti
yu pyaaso ke halkoo pe shamsheer na chalti

zainab se kaha haashmi haider ne ye ro kar
mai saaye ke maanind tere saath tha dilbar
hai peshe nazar ab bhi qayamat ka wo manzar
jis waqt ke chini gaee sar se teri chadar
mai bakshishe ummat ka sabab dekh raha tha
khaamosh khada marziye rab dekh raha tha
