Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#16: Shahzaade ka mulk Zar-Nigar mein pahunchna

Aur shahzaade Jaan-e-Alam ke qisse ka agla qist. Pichle mein woh us qile tak pahunch gaya tha jahan shahzaadi Anjuman Ara qaid hai. Aage kya hota hai, janne ke liye aage padhte rahe….

~~~~ Jahan Jaan-e-Alam khada tha us ke nazdeek hi zammurad ka bangla nazar aaya. Us mein se awaaz aayi. “Ae apni jaan ke dushman! Kyon Maut ke Farishte ko chedhta hai aur kyun zindagi se munh phairta hai. Mujhe tere husn-o-surat pe rahm aata hai. Jald se jald yahan se chalta ban. Yeh tera pehla qaoor tha jise teri shakal-o-surat ki waje se ham ne maaf kiya. Agar baaz na aaya to is bedardi se qatl karunga ke aasman tere haal par royega. Kisi ko teri khaak ka nishan nahi milega. Badshah alag tere gham mein jaan khoyega. Jangal ki khaak tere khoon se surkh ho jaayegi.”

Shahzaade ne hans kar jawaab diya “Oh namuraad! Tu kya hamari khata maaf karega. Khvam khvah bakwaas kar ke hame ghussa dilata hai. Tera bada bol do ghadi mein tere aage aata hai. Aur tu kya kahun. Insha Allah zara der mein tujhe bhi us khabees jadugar ke paas bhejta hoon.”

Yeh sun ke voh chillaya. Us badmaash ne bangle se sar nikaala aur thode maash ke daane phainke. Is ke saath hi asmaan zor zor se chakkar khaane laga. Zameen phirne lagi. Is ke baad sarson mein banole aur raie milayi. Phir tota-myanah aur lonachamari ko pukara aur woh daane aasman ki taraf uchaal diye. Ek dam gehri kaali ghataa ghir aayi aur shahzaade par pathar aur aag ka menh barasne laga. Yeh bhi torh ke liye lauh mein dekh dekh ke Isme-Ilahi padhta tha aur aage badhta jaata tha. Aag qareeb aati to paani ban ke bah jaati aur pathar raakh ban ke bikhar jaate. Jadugar kaisa kaisa ke nayi tadbeerein karta aur bokhla bokhla ke naye hamle karta.

Bahut der tak yeh silsila chalta raha. Aakhir kar shahzaade ne lauh ke khaanon par nazar daudhai, ek khaane mein likha tha “Kisi tarah lauh to qile ki deewar se laga de phir Khuda ki qudrat ka tamasha dekh.” Shahzaade ne himmat se kaam liya. Dauda aur uchak kar lauh ko qile ke deewar se chuva di. Qila par ek daam aafat tooth padhi. Pehle se bhi zor se chakkar khaane laga aur use aisi awaazen nikalne lagi jaise ek hazaar tope ek saath chuth rahi ho. Char ghadi baad na qila tha na makanat. Saamne ek ret ka teela tha. Is ke gird sarkande gire huye the. Sarkandon ke peeche voh chaand ki murat, hur ki surat pareshan bad-hawas baithi thi. Koi aas na paas. Jaan-e-Alam ne dekhte hi pehchan liya. Shahzaadi ko is halaat mein dekh ke us ki halaat ghair ho gayi, jism kapkapane laga aur paaon ladkhadane lage.

Anjuman Ara ne sharmaa ke sar jhuka liya. Boli “Sambhlo, sahab, yeh kya karte ho. kuch paas lihaaz bhi hai. Betakalluf paas chale aaye ho. Koi dekhega to kahega deewane ho.” Shehzaadi ne kehne ko to yeh kaha diya magar shahzaade ko ek nazar dekhte hi us par hazaar ji se fidaa ho gayi. Idhar shahzaade ka yeh haal huya ke khade rahne ki taqaat na rahi, gash khaake gir padha.

Anjuman Ara yeh halat dekh ke samajh gayi ke yeh naujawan bhi ham par jaan khota hai. Yehi wajah hai ke aisi balaa se na dara, sar bech ke us khauf-naak maidan mein qadam rakha. Koi aur uski tarah ham par jaan nisar karne waala na tha. Itne din yahaan bekasi mein guzre kisi ne aake haal na pucha. Kaun apni jaan kisi ke liye jokham mein dalta hai. Aakhir sharm rokti rahi lekin shahzaadi ne Jaan-e-Alam ka sar apni godh rakh liya. Chehre se gird poochi. Is bechaari ne kab kisi ko gash khaate dekha tha. Ghabra ke ro padhi. Jaan-e-Alam ke munh par aansuon ki boonde thapki to hosh aa gaya. Aankhen khol di. Anjuman Ara ne sharma ke apna ghutna sarkaya. Is ne adh khuli aankhon se shahzaadi ka chehra dekha aur bola ke hamari hoshiyaari se to behosh achhi thi.

Idhar to Jaan-e-Alam aur Anjuman Ara mein nok-jhonk ho rahi thi udhar shahi harkaare pal pal ki khabren qile pahuncha rahe the. Badshah ne suna ke beti jadugar se azaad ho gayi to bagh bagh ho gaya. Fauran darbaariyon ke saath ravaana hua aur ek sukhapaal jo shahzaadi ke savari ke layaq tha saath le aaya.

Baat ki baat mein badshah….

Aur yeh qist yahan khatam hoti hai….. Jaari rahegi……
