150th post: Dabistan-e-Lakhnau ke kuch shair ‘mood’ mein

With this, I have come to the 150th post here. To mark this milestone, I will put up a slightly different post… and one inspired by a some couplets of Asrar ul Haq Majaz Lakhnavi on veils I had put up a few days ago. With a little bit of research, I have come across some more on the topic by stalwarts of the Lucknow School and I will present them here.

Parvardigar ki naimat hain aur aap sab ki inyat ke main yahaan apni ek sau pachasvi post likh raha hoon. Is mauqe ke madde nazar main thodi hat kar post aap sab khwaatin-o-hazraat ke nazar kuch hat kar pesh karna chahta hoon…. jis ki soch mujhe aayi thi jo kuch din pehle jo Asrar ul Haq Majaz Lakhnavi ki kuch ghazal aur asha’ar jo hijab aur parda-nasheenon par yahan diye the. Kuch daryaft ke baad mujhe Dabistan-e-Lakhnau ke kuch alambardar ke isi unwan par kuch asha’ar mile or main unhe aap sab ke nazar kar raha hoon.

Aaghaz karte hain Mirza Zaakir Hussain Saqib Lakhnavi se

Jab chaha pardah uthaya jab chaha parda baitha
Yeh cherh aur ek deewane se maalum nahi kya kar baitha

Is ke baad Syed Anwar Hussain Arzu Lakhnavi

Allah Allah husn ki yeh parda daari dekhiye
Bhed jis ne kholna chaaha deewana hua

Phir Syed Ali Naqi Zaidi Safi Lakhnavi

Qayamat hi na ho jaaye jo parde se nikal aao
Tumhaare munh chipane mein to yeh aalam nikalta hai

Ab Mirza Mohammad Hadi Aziz Lakhnavi

‘Aziz’ munh se vo apne naqaab to ulten
Karenge jab agar dil pe ikhtiyar raha

Munshi Ameer Ahmed Ameer Mina’i ke yeh pehle asha’ar kafi ne suna hoga

Sarakti jaaye hai rukh se naqaab aahista-aahista
Nikalta aa raha hai aaftab aahista-aahista

Par yeh waala dekhiye…..

Kaam aayi kuch na pardah nasheeni huzoor ki
Dekh aayi ja ke bad-e-saba sar se paaon tak

(Uff! Uff! Vallah…… Aur sochiye ke yeh hazrat Shah Mina ke khandaan se the)

Aur khatam karte hain Jaleel Ahmed Jaleel Manikpuri se

Chipne waale tujhe khabar bhi hai!
Niga-e-shauq pardah dar bhi hai

aur yeh bhi…..

Naqaab kahti hai main parda-e-qayamat hoon
Agar yaqeen na ho dekh lo utha ke mujhe
