Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#20: Shahzaade ki Anjuman Ara se shaadi

Aur ham sab ab shahzaade Jaan-e-Alam ke jashn ke beech mein the. Aage dekhte hai kya hota….

~~~~ Baraat ki raat ka haal bhi sunne qabil hai. Diwan-e-Khaas se dulhan ka makan paanch kos ke faasle par tha. Donon taraf aadmi ke qad se dugne sau sau batti waale bulvar ke jhaad paanch paanch gaz ke faasle par roshan the. Das das gaz ke faasle par sone aur chaandi ke panch shaakhe jalte the. Thode thode faasle par naubat naqqare bajte the aur rangeen shaamiyanon ke tale nach gaana hota tha.

Aakhir dulha haathi par sawaar huya. Chaaron taraf shadiyane bajne lage. Shahnayian bajne uthen. Sawaaron ke risaale jaloos ke saath saath the. Hazaar-barah sau takht rawan saath the jin par naach hota jaata tha. Barche waale, baan daar aur raushan chauki waale hamraah the. Badshah barah hazaar haathiyon ke saath baraat ke peeche aata tha. Ameer aur wazir us ke gird-o-pesh the. Anjuman Ara ka bhai saa-bala bana tha.

Pahr raat rahe baraat dulhan ke darwaaze par pahunche. Mama asselen daudhen. Paani ka tasht haathi ke paaon tale phainka. Naach-gaane ki mehfil jam gayi. Subah hone ko thi ke qazi ko talb kiya gaya. Us ne nikaah padhaya. Kayi saltanaton ke kharaj par mehr bandha. Saare goye ek sar mein sur mein mubarak baad gaane lage. Badshah ne unhen kayi laakh rupaye inaam mein diye.

Dulha zanane mein talb hua. Vahan rasmen hone lagi. Aarsi mashaf ki rasm ada huyi. Surah Ikhlas khol ke saamne rakhi. Domniyon suhaag gaane lagen. Dulhan ki hamjholiyan dulha se cherh-charh karne lagen. Koi dulhan ki jooti dulha ke kandhe se chuva gayi. Kisi ne dulha ke jute chippa ke joota-chipayi maangi. Rukhsat ka waqt aaya to Jaan-e-Alam ne Anjuman Ara ko godh mein utha ke sukhpal mein sawaar kiya. Sab ka dil bhar aaya. Badshah ne mulk, saltanat, khazana, sabhi kuch jahez mein de diya. Jaan-e-Alam ki khushiyon ka thikana na tha. Idhar dulhan ke ghar mein kohraam tha. Har ek ki aankhon mein aansu the.

Shaadi ka jaloos bade karr-0-far se ravana huya. Baajon ka shor aasman tak pahuncha tha. Saare raste dulha dulhan par sona chaandi nisaar kiya gaya. Yeh jaloos chauk se guzar ke diwan-e-khaas mein daakhil huya. Jo rasmen yahan ki thi, hone lagi. Bakra zhabah kiyam anguthe mein mein khoon laga diya. Phir kheer khila ke rasmon se fursat paayi. Raat ko shahzaade ne shahzaadi ko saari kahani sunayi ke kis tarah tote ki zaban se Anjuman Ara ke husn ka bayaan suna, kis tarah be-dekhe us par fida huya, wazirzaade aur tote ko le kar safar par ravana huya. Jiran ko dekh ke us ka peecha kiya to tote aur wazirzaade se bichda. Tilism mein phansa, mahinon jadugarni ke qaid mein raha, phir kis kis tarah qaid se rihayi paayi. Malika Mehr-Nigar se mulaqaat huyi. Shahzaadi ne jadugarni par to afsos kiya magar Mehr-Nigar ki mulaqaat ki baat suni to ruki surat banayi, tebri chadhayi. Phir shahzaade ne jadugar se ladne aur Anjuman Ara ko use nijaat dilaane ka haal tafseel se sunaya.

Subah ko chauthi ki rasm ke baad badshah ne shahzaade aur shahzaadi ko ek khubsurat baagh rehne ko ata kiya. Baagh kya tha pura raahat-kadah tha. Kaunsa aish-o-aaram tha jo is baagh mein maujud na tha. Dono baagh mein rahne lage.

Jaan-e-Alam ko idhar jitne aish the, malika Mehr-Nigar ko udhar itni hi takleef thi. Har waqt shahzaade ko yaad karti thi aur us se mulaqaat ki duaaen mangti thi. Jis jagah shahzaade se mulaqat huyi thi aksar vahan jaati aur pahron sar jhukaye baithi rahti. Us ki saheliyan uski halat par taras khaati aur Khuda se dua karti thi ke ae Allah, is museebat ki maari ki bigdi bana de.

Kehte hai mohabbat sachhi ho to us mein asar hota hai. Raftaa raftaa aese hua ke shahzaade ka vahan ji ghabrane laga, apna vatan yaad aane laga. Aksar aesa hota ke malika Mehr-Nigar k vafaaen yaad aayen aur pahron Jaan-e-Alam ko sataati. Ek din achanak khayal aaya ke Khuda jaane Mehr-Nigar ka kya haal ho gaya hoga. Kya khabar ke jeeti bhi hai ya hamare firaaq mein mar gayi. Is khayal ka aana tha ke shahzaade ka dil buri tarah ghabraane laga.

Anjuman Ara se bola “Ab vatan aur doston aur azeezon ki yaad bahut sataati hai. Aaj badshah salamat se vatan jaane ki ijaazat chahunga.” Yeh sun ke Anjuman Ara ka dil dhak se rah gaya. Maa-baap, vatan se choothne ka khayal sataane laga magar shohar ki farmanbardari thi aur usne jo taklifen uthayi thi unki qadr karti thi. Boli “Mera bhi jee chahta hai ke yahan se qadam nikaalun aur koh-o-bayaban ki sair karun.”

Aur yeh qist taveel ho rahi hai… maine socha tha ke is mein hi mukammal kar doon lekin yeh mumkin nahi hai. Agle mein, insh’Allah.

Jaari rahega….
