Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#29: Shah Yaman ka qissa

Dastaanon ki ek khususiyat hoti hai ke qisse mein se qissa nikalta hai. Ab jaise misaal ke taur par yeh qist hai. Maane ke aise ahm mauqe pe aap betaab honge jaane ke liye ke shahzaade par kya guzri, lekin thoda intezaar karen….. isse dilchaspi bani rahti hai. To lijiye ek nek hukmaran ke baare mein kuch jaaniye, aur qismat ke khel dekhiye…..

~~~~ Bandar ne kaha “Kisi zamaane mein mulk Yaman par ek badshah raj karta tha. Khuda ne use be-hisaab daulat di thi. Voh bhi aisa Khuda se darne laga tha ke Allah ke raah mein sab kuch nisaar karne ko sada haazir tha. Udhar sa’il ke munh se sawaal nikla idhar poora huya. Is liye door door Khuda-dost ke naam se mashoor tha.”

Ek din koi shakhs aaya aur sawwal kiya “Agar Khuda-dost hai to Allah ke vaaste teen din mujhe hukumat karne de.”

Badshah ne kaha “Bism-Illah!” Aur hukumat ke saare mulazimon, ameeron, waziron ko takeed ki ke har tarah iska hukum baja laayen. Jo is mein kotahi karega sazaa paayega.

Chauthe roz badshah ne poocha “Ab kya iraada hai?” Voh bola “Pehle to tera imtihaan leta tha. Ab badshahat ka mazaa badh gaya. Khuda ke vaaste yeh takht-o-taaj hamesha ke liye mujhe baksh de.”

Badsha ne kaha “Yeh hukumat aap ko mubarak ho.” Sab kuch usko baksh diya. Khazane mein se kuch bhi na liya. Is ke do bete the. Ek saat baras ka doosra nau baras ka. In dono ka haath thama, biwi ko saath liya aur piyadah pa mohtajon ki tarah chal nikla. Kisi din ko do kos ka safar karta. Kisi din chaar kos ka. Kisi basti mein koi rozi muyassar aa gayi to theek varna roza rakh leta.

Kuch dinon chalne ke baad ek shahr pahuncha aur musafir khaane mein uttra. Ittefaq se usi vaqt ek saudagar bhi kahin se vahan aa pahuncha. is ka qafilaa to door tha.Yeh ghode pe sawaar sair karta mehmaan-sara tak chala aaya malika ko dekha. Is ka chehra safar ki vajeh se gard mein att gaya tha magar chaand badaalon ki aout mein bhi achcha lagta hai. Saudagar ko malika bahut pasand aayi aur voh use haasil karne ki tarkabeen sochne laga.

Saudagar ji mein kuch soch kar aur museebat ke maaron ki si shakal bana kar badshah ke paas aaya.

Salaam kiya aur bola “Ae azeez! Main takhir hoon, qafilaa bahat uttra hai. Meri biwi beemar hai, bachcha hone waala hai. Yahan koi nahi jo uski dekh-bhaal kar sake. Tu nek-bakht hai. Zara der ke liye apni biwi ko mere saath kar de varna us gareeb ki jaan jaayegi.”

Is ne bibi se kaha “Yeh bhi khush-naseebi hai ke ham is mohtaji mein bhi kisi ke kaam aa saken. To iske saath jaa aur aurat ki jaan bacha.” Is bechaari ne dam na mara. Fauransaudagar ke saath ravaana huyi. Us ne darwaaze se nikal ke us gareeb se kaha ke “Qafilaa door hai. Aap ghode par charh len taake jaldi pahunch ke us ki dekh-bhaal karen.”

Voh gareeb us ka fareb na jaanti thi. Ghode par sawaar ho gayi. Saudagar use liye qafile ke pas pahuncha aur looch ka hukum de diya. Ab to bechaari bahut royi peeti, cheekhi chillayi magar us ka dil patthar tha. Is mein jaunk na lagi. Badshah ne bahut der intezaar kiya. Phir use dhoondhne niklaa. Qafilaa ravana ho chuka tha. Door gard udhti nazar aati thi. Peecha karna be-sood tha. Sabr kar lita. Bachchaon ko saath leke ravaana huya. Rasta bhool gaya. Ek nadi mile magar paar karne ko koi kishti na thi. Ek bete ko kinaare par baithaya aur doosre ko kandhe par chadha kar darya par karne laga. Abhi aadhe raste mein tha ke kinaare waale ladke ko behedhiya utha le chala. Voh chillaya to voh ghabra ke mudha. Is mein kandhe ka bachcha darya mein gir pada khud bhi ghote khaane laga magar badi mushkil se kinaare par pahuncha.

Takht chootha, biwi choothi. Donon bachche Khuda ko pyaare huye. Ab Khuda-dost tha aur itne bahut se gham. Isi pareshani mein Khuda ka shukr ada karta chala jaata tha. Sa pehr ko ek shahr ke qareeb pahuncha. Shahr sipah ke darwaaze par bheed jamaa thi. Idhar aaya. Is mulk mein yeh dastur tha ke badshah mar jaata to amir-o-wazir shahr ke bahar jamaa hote aur ek baaz udaate. Yeh baaz jiske sar par baith jaata usi ko badshah banaate. Yeh vahi din tha. Baaz chorha ja chuka tha magar abhi tak kisi ke sar par na baitha tha. Is faqir surat badshah ka vahan pahunchna tha ke ke baaz us ke sar par aa baitha. Fauran us ki khidmat mein takht pesh kar diya gaya. Us ne har chand inkar kiya ke main is qaabil nahi. Jis bala ka chorh kar niklaa hoon vahi gale padhti hai magar koi na maana. Ise takht par baithakar nazren pesh ki gayi…..

Aur yeh qist yahan khatam. Jaari rahega qissa…..
