Riaz Khairabadi, Riyaz Khairabadi

Riaz Khairabadi
1853–1934

Riyaz (also Riaz) Khairabadi alias Syed Riyaz Ahmad was a poet who lived in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.  Riyaz Khairabadi was a senior contemporary of Mehdi Ifadi.  Mehdi Ifadi admits the fact that he has been a great fan of Riaz Khairabadi since his adulthood when he did not even knowthe meaning of literature. He has said that a whole generation of Urdu litterateurs had been raised by Riyaz Khairabadi. Though Riaz Khairabadi used terminology of maikhana, saghar, meena, jaam, mai mainly in poetry, in real life he was a teetotaler.

Mai Rahe, Meenaa Rahe
 


mai rahe, meenaa rahe, gardish mein paimaanaa rahe
mere saaqi tuu rahe aabaad maikhana rahe

hashr bhi to ho chukaa rukh se naheen hatati naqaab
had bhi aakhir kuchh hai, kab tak koi deevana rahe

raat ko jaa baithate hain roz ham majanun ke paas
pahle anaban rah chuki hai ab to yarana rahe

zindagi ka lutf ho udti rahe haradam 'Riaz'
ham hon sheeshe ki pari ho ghar parikhana rahe

Duniyaa Se Alag Hamne

 
duniyaa se alag hamne maiy-khaane ka dar dekhaa
maiy-khaane ka dar dekhaa, allah ka ghar dekhaa

dono'n ke maze loote, dono'n ka asar dekhaa
allah ka ghar dekhaa, maiy-khaane ka dar dekhaa

kaabe mein nazar aaye jo subah azaa'n dete
maiy-khaane mein raato'n ko unkaa bhee guzar dekhaa

kuchh kaam nahee'n maiy se go ishq hai is shaiy se
hai rind 'riyaz' aise daaman bhee na tar dekhaa

Mujh se badh kar dil mera gustaakh


 Mujh se badh kar dil mera gustaakh
Nazar us se bhi kuch sava gustaakh

Aaj pi to dekha hai waiz ko
Main kabhi is qadr na tha gustaakh

Cherh hai donon ki halke aanchal se
Shokh kuch aap kuch saba gustaakh

Haath dastar par rahe waiz
Ke hai maikhane ki hawa gustaakh

Ek himaqat ke saath udhar waiz
Is taraf ek Riaz ya Gustaakh

(Gustaakh Rampuri ki taraf ishara)

Ji uthe hashr mein


 Ji uthe hashr mein phir ji se guzarne vaale
Yaan bhi paida huye phir aap pe marne waale

Hai udaasi shab-e-maatam ki suhaani kaisi
Chaaon mein taaron ki nikle hain savarne waale

Ham to samjhe the ki dushman pe uthaya khanjar
Tumne jaana ki hami tum pe hain marne waale

Sabr ki mere, mujhe daad zara de dena
O mere hashr ke din faislaa karne vaale

Kya maza deti hai bijli ki chamak mujhko Riaz
Mujhse lipte hai, mere naam se darne waale

Vo kaun hai duniyaa mein
 


Vo kaun hai duniyaa mein jise Gam nahiin hotaa
kis ghar mein Khushii hotii hai maatam nahiin hotaa

aise bhii hain duniyaa mein jinhen Gam nahiin hotaa
ek ham hain hamaaraa Gam kabhii kam nahiin hotaa

kyaa surmaa-bharii aankhon se aansuu nahiin bahate
kyaa mehandii lage haathon se maatam nahiin hotaa

kuchh aur bhii hotii hain bigaRane kii adaayen
par merii samajh ye ek aalam nahiin hotaa

Aap aaye tou khyal-e-dil-na-shad aayaa


Aap aaye tou khyal-e-dil-na-shad aayaa
Aap ne yaad dilaya tou muje yaad aayaa

Kyaa kahaa, fir se tou kaho, bhuul gaye ham kisko
Sadke usake, jo tumhe bhuul ke yaad aayaa

Nazar aati hai ka_ii esi bhii katil shaklen
Dekh kar jinki taraf hamko khudaa yaad aayaa

Kal shab mein ko_ii so baar tou bizli chamkii
Raat dil ko ko_ii so baar tuu hii yaad aayaa
