Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#4: Jaan-e-Alam ka safar par ravana hona

Bini kisi takhalluf ya takhir ke, main Mirza Rajjab Ali Beg Suroor ki lajawaab dastaan “Fasana-e-Ajaib” ki agli qist pe aapko le chalta hoon….

~~~~ Tote aur wazirzaade ke saath shazaada nazon ka paala mahal se nikal le shahr panah ke darwaaze par pahuncha, mudh ke shahi mahlon aur shahr ki bastion ko dekha to dil bhar aaya. Azeezon aur doston ki judaai ke khayal ne bahut rulaya. Khuda se kamyaabi ki dua karke aage badha to pinjre ko khol diya. Shahzaada aur wazirzaada apne apne ghodon par sawar the aur miya mutthu hawa ke ghode par udhe jaate the. Har manzil par naya daana khate, naya paani peete aur aur Khuda ka shukr karke aage badhe jaate.

Chalte chalte yeh qafila ek ajeeb jangal mein ja nikla. Jangal ka ek nirala chaman tha jis ka har takhta phoolon se lada tha. Phool bhi aise rang birange ke ji ko lubhaate the aur inki bheeni-bheeni khushbu dil-o-dimaagh ko tazaa karti thi. Shahzaada Khuda ki kudrat par ash ash [nihyat khushi aur tehseen o afreen ke mauqe pe bola jaata hai]  karta chala jaata tha. Achanak ek samt se do tez raftaar hiran saamne aaye. In par zarefat ki jhoolen padhi thi singhon par jurhaon sanghutian jaadhi thi. Gale mein qimti heekalen thi aur aur woh cham cham karte qila-nachin bharte chale jaate the.

Jaan-e-Alam bechain hua. Wazirzaade se kaha “Kisi tarah inhe jeeta giraftaar kijiye.” Done ne unke peeche ghode daal diye. Ya to voh hiran apne andaaz se khelte koodte chale ja rahe the, godon ko peecha karte dekha ke sambhale, kanotiyan badli aur chaukdiyan phirne lagi. Unhone bhi ghode raptaye. Jahan-dida parinda ghabra ke pukaara “Arre nadaan! Yeh kya ghazab karta hai. Kya tu diwaana hai, dekhta nahi yeh jangal nahi jadu ka karkhaana hai.” Tote ne har chand sar dhana magar kise ne na suna. Voh chale gaye. Yeh haar ke ek darakht par baitha raha.

Do-chaar kos dono hiran saath-saath bhage phir donon alag-alag samton ko ho liye. Ek ke peeche shahzaada daudhta raha aur doosre ke peeche wazirzaada. Yun donon ek doosre se bichadh gaye. Suraj gharub hone tak shahzaada ghoda daudhata raha. Achanak hiran nazron se ojhal ho gaya. Shahzaada ne ghabra ke idhar udhar dekha. Door tak jangal bayaban, na tote ka kahin pata na wazirzaade ka nishan. Bahut ghabraya kahin koi jaandar nazar na aaya.

Shahzaada aage badha to ek chashma nazar aaya. Ghode se uttar ke haath munh dhoya aur Khuda se dua ki ke “Ae bekason ke madadgar, ae pak parwar-digar, ae besaharon ko sahara dene waale, museebat ke maaron ki bigdi baanane waale bas tera hi aasra hai. Main tere bharose par saltanat ko khaak mein milaya, ghar se haath uthaya aur safar ki taklifen bardasht ki.”

Dua qabool huyi. Ek buzurg, Khizr ki surat, noorani chehra, safed sadhi, sar par sabz pagdi badan par anabi libaas, haath mein asa liye namudaar huye aur buland awwaz mein shahzaade ko salaam aleik huye. Use ne jawaab diya to buzurg ne pucha “Ae azeez! Tu kis pareshani mein mubtala hai. Bayan kar.”

Shahzaada sun kar aesa khush hua ke raasta bhulne ka gham bhi yaad na raha. Wazirzaade aur tote se bichadna bhi bhool gaya. Bola “Aap ko us ki qasam hai jis ne aap ko meri rahbari ke liye bheja hai. Jis ke liye dil bechain hai ise dikhayiye air mulk Zar-nigar ka raasta bataiye.”

Voh buzurg hanse ke tilism ke jangal mein giraftar hai, saathi bicharh chuke. Jaan par ban aayi hai. Magar mulk Zar-nigar ko nahi bhula. Lekin us ki halat par taras bhi aaya. Unhone shahzaade se kaha “Aankhen band karo”. Shahzaade ne aankhen band kari to Anjuman Ara saamne thi. Safar ki saari taklif door ho gayi. Phir us buzurg ne shahzaade ko kuch khila ke chashme ke kinaare sula diya. Subah ko aankh khuli to us maqaam par tha jahan se raasta bhula tha. Aur hiran ke peeche ghoda dala tha. Sajde mein gir pada aur Khuda ka shukr ada kiya.

Jaan-e-Alam ne phir se apna safar shuru kiya…..

Jaari rahega……
