Hayaat - Sirf Behare Haadsaat hi to hai

Hayaat - Sirf  behare Haadsaat hi to hai 
Maut - Gham-e Zeest se Nijaat hi to hai 

Behatay hain aankh se agar aansu to behnay de
Baadal se ho ya aankh se - barsaat hi to hai 

Maayus hai kyon ae dile be-sabar is qadar
Lambi sahi ye raat - magar raat hi to hai 

Tadap rahaa tha dil kisi ke saath ke liye
Tujh se mera milna karaamaat hi to hai 

Na dekh kisi ghareeb ko nafarat ki aankh se
Vo bhi to aakhir aadmi ki zaat hi to hai

Vo hai agar ghareeb to uska hai kya qasoor
Vo raundaa-e-Gardishe halaat hi to hai 

Jaise kut rahi hai - kaat lo ye zindagi
Socho zaraa - chaar din ki baat hi to hai 

Dekha jab qareeb se 'Rajan' to yoon lagaa
Maut bhi qudrat ki ik saugaat hi to hai

(On the death of an old acquaintance) 

Hayaat :        Life
Behare Haadsaat : Flow of continuous Incidents, like a river
Gham-e Zeest:   Pains and Sufferings of life
Nijaat  :          Freedom, liberation, Salvation 
Maayus :  Sad, Discouraged
Raunda-e-gardishe-halaat : Downtrodden, suppressed by circumstances
Qudrat :        Nature
Saugaat :       Gift

  3. Dekhne waale ki nazar par nirbhar karta hai. Jab aap jaise mahatma yeh samjha dete hain to yeh saugaat lagne lagti hai warna insaan to janam se le kar maut tak rota hi rota hai.
