Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#33: Shah Yaman ka qissa

Unwaan par mat jaiyye. Pichle do qiston ki tarah is mein bhi Yaman ke badshah ka qissa nahi, shahzaade Jaan-e-Alam par aage kya guzri ka bayan hai.

~~~~ Bandar ki taqreer se log hairan bhi the aur udaas ki baaton ka in par sar bhi bahut huya tha. Saari khalqat is ke saath roti chaali jaati thi. Yahan tak ke yeh jaloos malika ke jharokhe ke tale aa pahuncha.

Malika saudagar se mukhatib ho ke boli “Ek dam thahr jaa. Main bhi is museebat ke maare ki taqreer sunna chahti hoon.” Saudagar ne yeh sun ka haathi roka.

Malika bandar se boli “Ae bezubaan muqarar! Ae khanman kharaab! Ham ab kis qaabil hai magars ki dastaan sunne ki khwaish rakhte hai.”

Bandar ne awaaz pehchaani. Pehle to khub roya phir ji thehra ke kehne laga.

“Kya sunayen yaar ne ayyari ki mal se dagha di. Hamse jis ke aansu na dekhe jaate the voh hamaare khoon ka pyaasa nikla. Sach hai is duniya mein neki ka badlaa baddi hai. Phir se vatan dekhne ki tamanna dil hi mein rah gayi. Doston ka kaha na maana voh aage aaya. Ab samajh mein aaya ke apna bhed kisi par kholna achcha nahi. Kisi ka kya dosh doon. Maine aapne pairon par kulhaadi maari. Ab koi tadbeeren nahi aati. Koi ghadi mein muft jaan jaati hai. Jo dekhta hai voh jaanta hai jo nahi jaanta us se keh dena ke tumhaare liye ghar chorh ke dar-badar huye aur aaj jaan se jaate hai.”

In baaton se raha saha shak bhi jaata raha. Pakka yaqeen ho gaya ke Jaan-e-Alam yehi hai. Jawaab diya ke “Jo jaante the (yaani Malika Mehr-Nigar) un se kya ho saka, jo nahi jaante the (yaani Anjuman Ara) ab voh jaan ke kya kar lenge.” Itna kaha aur tote ki gardan marorh, pinjrah parde se bahar nikaal diya. Bandar ki nigaah pinjre par padhi, samjha malika pehchaan gayi, jhat saudagar ki god mein let gaya aur apni jaan tote ke badan mein daakhil kar di, tota phadka, malika ka dil khushi se dhadhka, pinjrah andar khainch liya.

Saudagar ne dekha bandar mar gaya, chaaha apni jaan le le aur badnaami se choothe. Logon ne samjhaya ke “Khuda ki marzi hai dakhal nahi. Agar voh zaalim le ke maar dalta to kaun rokta. Ab itna to hai ke apni maut aap mara. Sabr karo.” Tamashiyon ne suna ke bandar mar gaya to sab ro diye sab ek hi baat kehte the “Bandar khush-naseeb tha. Zaalim ke aage jaane ki naubat na aayi. Marne ke darr se saudagar ki god mein jaan de di.”

Yeh khabar wazirzaade ko pahunchi, phir bhi chain na aaya. Laash mangva ke apne saamne jalvayi aur dil thanda kiya. Vahan malika Mehr-Nigar pinjrah le baithi. Logon ko paas se sarka diya. Miyan mutthu ne shuru se aakhir tak sara haal keh sunaya “Ham nashe ki tarang mein the. Wazirzaada roya ke ham se raaz chuppate ho. Ham ne jism badalne ki tarkeeb bata di. Us ne amal hamin par azmaaya. Phir chidhimaar ke jaal mein phanse. Ek taajir ne niraali cheez jaan ke hamen us se khareed liya. Phir aaj tum se mile.” Malika ne kaha “Itminaan rakhiye ab jald koi surat huyi jaati hai.”

Yahan yeh baat-cheet ho rahi thi ke us khabees ke aane ka itlaa pahuncha. Pehla voh aaya karta tha to malika baat na karti thi. Voh aap hi sharmindah ho ke uth jaata tha aaj malika us ke istaqbaal ko aayi. Voh kambakht yeh samjha ke us ne bandar ko pehchaan liya aur use apni aankhon se marte dekh liya. Is liye dab gayi hai. Ab jaldi nahi karni chahiye yeh koi din mein khud hi ise bhool jayegi. Use malika ke baap ka bhi bahut darr tha ke bada aalim hai pata nahi kya amal kare.

Wazirzaada rukhsat hone laga to malika ne kaha “Bakri ka ek khubsurat bachcha hamen bhej do. Ise paalenge aur apna dil bahlayenge,” ya to malika baat na karti ya farmaesh karni lagi. Wazirzada dil hi dil mein bahut khush huya ke itne din baad yeh naubat aayi. Isi vaqt bakri ka bachcha mangvakar bhejvaya. Doosre din wazirzaada aaya to malika ko bahut khush paya. Is ke saamne der tak bachche se khelti rahi.

Kayi din yehi khel hota raha. Ek roz malika ne…..

Aur yeh qissa yahan khatam. Agla jald aayega aapke nazar…
