Munafiqat

Munafiqat (Hypocrisy)

Munafiq zamaane ke dunyavi naate
Kyu mujhe ye kabhi samajh nahi aate
Jab jab maine inhe samajhna hai chaha
Tab tab sile mein syaah izteraab hai paya

Izteraab

Izteraab (Restlessness)

Aaj fir tere taghaful (neglect) ne diya sochon ka ek sailab (flood)
Jo tu bekhabar hai wahan, to kaisa hai ye izteraab
Jisne khade kar diye kuch sawalia nishan (question marks)
Jisne tod diye naa jaane kitne hi gumaan (notions)

Rivaayatein

Rivayatein (Customs)

Karni hai mujhe kuch shikayatein
Badalni hai mujhe kuch rivayatein
Jinhone kayi hain dil tode
Jinhone kayi khwaab tode

Mann ki Khalaa

Mann ki Khalaa

Zehen me uth rahe jo kayi sawaal
Bawandar se uth rahe jo kayi khayal
Dhoondne chala jo main unke jawaab
Mila to sirf mujhe mustaquil izteraab 

Fir yoon hi ek din main chala
Bharne mann ki khalaa

Zindagi se Roobaroo

Zindagi se Roobaroo

Ek din zindagi se roobaroo hue hum jo
Laga ki yaadon ka ek sailab beh chala ho
Har manzar nazar ke saamne jaise aa gaya wo
Ek saaf sa aayina jaise kisi ne laa, rakh diya ho

Poochhe maine zindagi se jab sawaal yoon
Ki aye zindagi! itni mushkil si tu mujhe lagti hai kyun

Khwaab, dreams

Khwaab (Dreams)

Kaanch ke haseen khwaab jo,
gustaakh aankhein dekh baithi thi
Achaanak se subah hui jo,
palkein unhi se rooth baithi thi

Wo khwaab the
ya galatfahmiyan thi
Wo sawaab the
ya mehez khushfahmiyan thi

Baatein

Baatein

Ek dua jo aasmano se ata hui mujhe
Wo ankahi dua hai tu
Jisne fir se jeena sikhaya mujhe
Wo sukoon ka sabab hai tu

Aahat tere aa jaane ki
Bolti hain ab khamoshiyan bhi mujhse
Baatein jo zubaan ne naa ki
Kehti wo teri aankhein hai mujhse

Unsaid Words

Unkahi (Unsaid)

Kayi khat jo dil ne likhe
Unhe zubaan naa keh saki
Kayi harf jo aankhon ne padhe
Wo baatein jo bayaan naa hui

Aye Zindagi

Aye Zindagi!

Aye Zindagi! chal ek samjhauta kar lein aaj
Kyu naa doraahe se raasta hum bana lein aaj

Kuch tu aasaan ho jaa naa
Kuch main mazboot banta hoon
Kuch tu mere mutabiq ho jaa naa
Kuch main tere liye badalta hoon

Live in the moment

Waqt

Achhe waqton ki raah mein,
Kayi muddatein beet gayi
Wo to naa aaya is daur mein,
Par zindagi zaroor beet gayi

Kya hai achha waqt?
Ye kisko pata hai
Kaisa ye hota hai
Wo kaun jaanta hai

Bol doon ki nahi (To say or not)

Is kadar sochte sochte aankhon me hi raat kat gayi
Kya kahun kya sunun ye hisaab lagate hi subah ho gayi

Ki bol doon ya chup rahoon, ya bas sirf ek ishara kar doon
Ki bhool jaun ya yaad rakhun, ya bas mehez chhod doon

Rehaayi

Rehaayi (Liberation)

Hoon zinda to main magar, saansein tham si gayi hain
Hoon chal to raha magar, raahein theher si gayi hain

Kaise samajhaun khud ko ki kya hai sach aur kya nahi
Zamaane ki maan loon ya kar loon khud par yakeen

Where I belong

Where I belong

I don’t feel like I belong here,
A constant suffocation which I bear
Amidst a mob of people, indulged in life’s symphony
My heart dreads the voice of monotony
