Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#32: Shah Yaman ka qissa

Chaliye wapas qisse pe aaye. Qisse ke andar ka qissa to khatam huyam aur ham phir shahzaade Jaan-e-Alam ke saath hai. Dekhiye aage kya hota hai….

~~~~ Dono miyan biwi yeh sun ke rone peetne lage. Bandar ne samjha ke ab jaan nahi bachti. Itni hi zindagi thi, bola “Bekaar rone se kya faidah hai. Hamari qismat mein yehi likha tha. Taqdeer ke aage kisi ka bas nahi chalta. Mujhe is saudagar ke hawaale kar do. Badshah ko khabar pahunchi ke tumne mujhe chuppa rakha hai to tum sazaa paaoge.”

Chidhimaar ko dukh to bahut huya magar kar kya sakta tha. Us ne saudagar se vaadaa liya ke use badshah ko na dena aur uski achchi tarah dekh-bhaal karna. Phir voh bandar saudagar ke havaale kar diya, saudagar ne chidhimaar ko bahut sa maal diya aur bandar ko le ke sarai mein aaya, ise khub sa pyaar kiya aur haal poocha.

Bandar ne sirf itna bataya ke “Museebat ka maara hoon aur kisi tarah is museebat mein giraftar ho gaya hoon.” Saudagar ko is par bahut taras aaya. Ise badi achchi tarah rakne laga magar niraali cheez haath aayi thi. Jo koi aata use bandar dikhata balke us ki baaten sunvata. Voh nakkal ke kahi aur kehta. Aakhir yeh baat door-door pahunch gayi ke saudagar ke paas ek bandar hai jo aadmiyon ki tarah bolta hai.

Hote hote yeh baat us ehsaan-faramosh, namak-haraam wazirzaade ko pahunchi jo ab shahzaada bana baitha tha. Samajh gaya ho na ho yeh vahi bandar hai. Ise fauran haasil karke maut ke ghaat utaar dena chahiye. Fauran ek chaubdaar ko bheja ke jaaye aur bandar le aaye magar saudagar ne bandar na diya ke main ise aulaad ki tarah paala hai. Is ki judaai kisi tarah gavaara nahi. Yeh kora jawaab sun ke wazirzaade ko bada taao aaya fauran vahan ke badshah Ghazanfar Shah ko likha ke saudagar se bandar hame dilaao varna is shahr ki eent se eent baja doonga. Us ne ameeron waziron se salah ki. Sab ne yehi kaha ke ek bandar ki khaatir khoon-kharaaba achcha nahi.

Badshah ke aadmi saudagar ke paas pahunche. Saudagar samajh gaya ke ab na khushamad kaam degi na zor-zabardasti. Bandar ne bhi samjhaya ke ab saari tadbeerein be-sood hai. Aakhir bahut kaha sun ke raat-bhar ki mohlat mili. Yeh tayy paya ke subah ke vaqt saudagar khud bandar ko le kar shahzaade ki khidmat mein haazir hoga.

Zara der mein yeh khabar har taraf phail gayi ke ek saudagar ke paas bandar hai jo insaanon ki tarah bolta hai. Kal subah yeh bhi maara jaayega. Hote hote yeh khabar Mehr-Nigar tak bhi pahunchi. Samajh gayi ho na ho yehi shahzaada hai. Wazirzaade namak-haraam ko bahut kosa aur logon se poocha ke “Subah ko saudagar kis raste se guzrega aur ham yeh tamasha kaise dekh sakenge.” Logon ne arz kiya ke saudagar malika ke jharokhe ke peeche se guzrega.

Yeh sunkar saari raat tadapti rahi, neend na aayi. Do ghadi raat se baramade mein aa baithi aur ek tota pinjre mein paas rakh liya. Din nikalne se pehli bazaar mein hulladh huya aur tamashiyon ka mela lag gaya.

Saudagar ne uth ke subah ki namaaz padhi. Phir kamar mein pesh qabz laga ke haathi par sawaar ho gaya. Bandar ko apni god mein baitha liya aur marne maarne par kamar bandh li, bandar se bola “Tu pareshan na ho, pehle to ise samjhaoonga ke khvaam-khvah is be-gunaah ki jaan na le. Na maana, to phir bhari raqam de ke teri jaan bachaane ki koshish karunga magar tujhe us ke hawaale na karunga. Mard jo kehte hai vahi karte hai.”

Saudagar ka aage badhna tha ke khalqat ne chaaron taraf se gher liya. Bandar logon se mukhatib ho ke bola “Sahibon! Yeh duniya ibarat ki jagah hai. Yahan ki har cheez aani jaani hai, qismat ke aage har ek lachaar hai. Yahan koi aisa nahi jise koi na koi dukh, koi na koi takleef na ho, Khuda ki qudrat dekho ke mujh be-zabaan ko bolna sikhaya ke tum sab meri baaten sunne chale aate ho, mere haal par taras khaate ho. Tum sab jaante ho ke aaj mera saamna ek zaalim se hoga jo mujh be-gunaah ke khoon se aapne haath rangega.

Jab zaalim zulm karta hai to yeh bhool jata hai ke badshah ho ya bhikaari sab ka anjaam ek hai. Ek din sab ko mitti mein mil ke mitti ho jaana hai. Kisi ka sang marmar ka maqbara banta hai, kisi ko mushkil se gor gadha milta hai. Duniya mein khushi ke baad gham hota hai. Har bulandi ko ek din pasti mein badalna padhta hai. Muttalib yeh ke duniya karkhaana aesa hai jaise subah ka chiraagh ke ab bujha aur ab bujha. Is liye is duniya se bhala aadmi dil na lagaaye.”

Sahi baat hai….. aur isi maqaam par, inhi danaai ke lafzon ke saath, main yeh qist ko khatam karta hoon….
