محمدعباد خان شمس بھوپالی ایک درخشاں ستارہ جو ڈوب گیا:مسلم سلیم

تعزیتی اجلاس میں نوجوان شاعر کو خراجِ عقدت پیش کیا گیاIBAD SOLO 2
بھوپال (26 اکتوبر2015) بھوپال اردو ادب کی زرخیز سرزمین ہے۔ اس نے شعری بھوپالی، کیف بھوپالی، سراج میر خاں سحر جیسے شعراءسے فیض حاصل کیا ہے۔ گذشتہ تین دہائیوں سے حکومت کی عدم سر پرستی اور اور خود اردو داں طبقہ کی بے رغبتی کے باعث نئے اردو شعراءو ادباءکا بھوپال میں ظہور نہیں ہو رہا تھا۔ جو شاذونادر نئے چہرے دکھائی دیتے تھے وہ بھی اتر پردیش اور بہار سے یہاں بہ سلسلہ ¿ ملازمت آئے ہوئے ہیں۔ ان نئے چہروں میں سب سے تابناک ستارہ محمدعباد خان شمس بھوپالی تھا جو  25اکتوبر2015 کو دل کا دورہ پڑنے سے اچانک غروب ہوگےا۔ (اناّ للہ و اناّ الیہ راجعون) ۔
ہم سخن ادبی تنظیم کی جانب سے ایک تعزیتی اجلاس میںبھوپال کے اس نوجوان شاعر کو خراجِ عقدت پیش کیا گےا۔ شاعر اور صحافی جناب مسلم سلیم نے بتایا کہ وہ گذشتہ ایک سال سے انکے حلقہ بگوش تھے۔انھوں نے بتایا یہ کہ اس سے پہلے انھوں نے کبھی شعر نہیں کہے تھے لیکن مجھ سے اور میری شاعری سے متاثر ہو کر انھوں نے شعر کہنا شروع کردئے تھے۔ کافی دنوں بعد انھوں نے اےک غزل بغرضِ اصلاح ارسال کی۔ ابتدائی مراحل کے اشعار تھے۔لیکن فنی نکات سے قطع نظر مجھے اےک با ت بہت نماےاں نظر آئی کہ یہ اک سوچنے والے شخص کی شاعری ہے جس کا مستقبل تابناک ہوگا۔ گذشتہ ۶ ماہ کے دوران وہ غزلیں بھیجتے رہے اور بعد میں خود غریب خانہ پر آکر اصلاح لیتے رہے۔ ہر بار ان میں بے حد امپروومنٹ دیکھنے کو ملا۔ اور اب تو یہ عالم ہو گیا تھا دو غزلے بھی بڑی صفائی کے ساتھ کہنے لگے تھے۔
مشہور شاعر جناب ثروت زیدی نے بتایاکہ محمد عبادخاں شمس بھوپا لی اچھا شاعر ہونے کا ساتھ ساتھ بے حد مخلص اور ملنسار بھی تھے۔ وہ بھوپال کی ادبی نشستوں کی روحِ رواں بنتے جا رہے تھے۔ ان کے انتقال سے اردو ادب کا نقصانِ عظیم ہوا ہے ۔
ہم سخن کے صدر جناب سلیم قریشی نے کہ کہا کہ محمد عبادخاں شمس بھوپالی مکمل شاعر تھے اور فیس بک پر مشہور اور مقبول ہو رہے تھا۔لیکن ستارہ چڑھنے سے پہلے ہی ڈوب گےاجس سے تما م دنیا اس سے ضیا ءبار ہونے والی تھی۔
تنظیم کے سکریٹری جناب عبدالاحد فرحان نے بتاےا کہ محمدعباد خان شمس بھوپالی جناب عارف محمد خان صاحب اورمحترمہ لُبنیٰ بیگم کے صاحبزادہ تھے جو تقریباً ۵۲ برس قبال ۷ جون کو بھوپال میں تولد ہوئے تھے۔ آپ نے بے نظیرکالج بھوپال سے تعلیم حاصل کی اور ایم ۔پی ۔ اسٹیٹ الیکشن اتھارٹی میں کمپیوٹر آپریٹر کے عہدے پر فائز تھے۔
اس موقعہ پر تنظیم کے ارکان جناب عطا ءاللہ فیضان، سمیر فیروزی، کاشف خان، توصیف خان، زیبا اکرم، سنجے گائکواڑ اور ادب نواز حضرات موجود تھے۔ نشست میں ۲ منٹ سکوت اختیار کرکے محمدعباد خان شمس بھوپالی کو خراجِ عقیدت پیش کیا گیا اور دعائے مغفرت کی گئی

kausar paragraphMuslim Saleem aaj kal ke aam shuara ki rawish se thora hatt kar apne ashhab-e-qalam ki jaulaniyan dikhata hain. kuch nasri tkhliqat bhi hain. woh naat, nazmein, qata’at waghaira bhi kehte hain magar woh mamlikat-e-ghazal ke badshah hain. Aisay badshah jo apni sarhadoon ki hifazat par hi nazar nahi rakhtay balkay is ki tausee mein bhi yaqeen rakhtay hain. Un ki ghazal bilaa mubaligha ghazal mein izafah hai. Un ka taair-e-fikr jab parwaaz karta hai to us ki nazar main daur ke manzar hotay hain jo aisay khayalaat ko janam dete hain jin mein qaari ko chaunka dainay wala kucch naya pan hota hai. Nein us shayar ko bara shayar samjhta hon jisay parh kar doosray shayar ke dimagh mein yeh khayaal sir uthaye ke kash mein bhi aisi shairi kar sakta. Muslim Saleem ki shairi ( ghazal ) is tareef par khari utarti hai .

NAZRANA-E-AQEEDAT BAKHIDMAT MOHTARAM
MUSLIM SALEEM SB
TARIQUE MOHIUDDIN, PATNA, BIHAR (INDIA)
Ek rahbar ik mujahid aaj Urdu ko mila,
Main tou kahta hooN ke beshak taaj Urdu ko mila.
Her jagah Urdu zabaaN ko zakhm hi kaari miley,
Iss ke haq mein jo miley woh dar ke darbaari miley.
Sher kahna sher sunana aur iss per tabsira,
RotiyaN kuchh seNk leeN aur pet apna bhar liya,
Lad khadhayi gir padi, sambhi, yeh phir gir kar uthhi,
Silsila chalta raha murjha gayi nazuk kali.
Iss ke sar par be-tuka bohtaan bhi rakkha gaya,
Iss pay dushman ki zabaaN keh kar sitam dhaaya gaya.
SaazishoN ke teer se phir iss ka dil chhalni hua,
Zer-e-maqtal ik tamasha raqs-e- bismil bhi hua.
Her qadam per thokareN theeN, thhe masayeb bhi baday,
Kah rahe thay sab yahi dushwaar hain yeh marhale.
Her tarah maayoosyoN ka chha geya iss per gahan,
Iss ghata ke beech ubhri phir khushi ki ik kiran.
Aur phir aisi sada uthhnay lagi Bhopal se,
Tum nikaalo ab tou iss ko sazishoN ke jaal se
AafreeN sad AareeN uthta raha paiham qadam,
Ek wehshat, ik janooN tha saath uss ke dam badam.
Woh mujahid kaun hai takraya jo toofaan se,
Hind ki sarhad mila di kis ne Pakistan se.
Un ki azmat ko kareN jhuk ker zara hum bhi salaam,
Naam hai Muslim Saleem unka kareN hum ehteraam.
Dekh len unki inaayat kya yahaaN Urdu ko hai,
Zaat aisi mohtaram kyoN rashk -e- jaaN Urdu ko hai.
Hai suroor-e-jaaNfiza unka kalaam-e-laajawaab
Shairi unki hai jaise dard ka darmaaN janaab,
Chust hai lafzon ki bandish, hai ajab tarz-e-bayaan
Maat hain nok-e-qalam ke saamnay tegh-o-sinaaN
Fikr hai sab say alag, sab say achoota hai kalam
Is main koi shak naheen hai dil ko chhoota hai kalaam,
Kya takhayyul, kya yeh andaaz-e-bayaaN hai dosto!
Iftikhar-o-naazish-e-ahl-e-zabaaN hai dosto!
Ilm aur fan ka Aligarh say inheN tuhfa milaa,
Darja-e-awwal say B.A tak waheeN seekha-parhaa.
Aap bhi iss ka asar dekheN ge inki zaat meiN,
Qaum ka gham jaise Sir Syed ko tha, din mein raat meiN.
Phir Allahabad say Arabi meiN M.A bhi kiya,
Akbar-o-Ibn-e-Safi ki sarzameeN par gul khila
Naazish-e-sher-o-sukhan Muslim ko logon ne kahaa,
Dekh leN site pe inki kis qadar hai tabsira.
Bazm inke naam ki sajti hai subh-o-shaam ab,
Rok sakti hi nahi hai gardish-e-ayyaam ab.
Ek maktab, ik idara ilm-o- daanish ka khula,
Le rahe hain faiz in se dekhye hum barmala.
Aap ke charche naheen bas Hind-o- Pakistan mein,
Tazkire hote hain ab to Cheen mein, Japan mein.
Her idaray say mileen asnaad inko be-shumaar,
Shair-e-yakta, kaha be-misl Afsana nigaar.
Aap ki khidamt adab mein hum likheN to kya likheN,
Aap ke rutbe maratib jo likheN thoda likheN.
jis tarah gul ki chaman bandi ho khushboo ke liye,
Dil dhadkta hai agar agar unka to Urdu ke liye,
In ki koshish ne diya Urdu ko husn-e-lazawaal,
In ki khidmat ki adab mein hai nahi koi misaal.
Aap ne sher-o-adab ko, fun ko zinda kar diya,
Haal sabka apni web directory main likh diya,
Kis qadar ehsaan in ka hum ginayeN dosto,
Pad gaye alfaaz kam, kaise batayeN dosto.Tariq_on_Muslim_january_2014 NEW

نظم “سِتارے

ڈاکٹر سیّدہ عِمرانہ نشتر خیرابادی

یہ چمکتے سِتارے

چراغ ہیں مِری چشِم تر کے

بہہ گئے ہیں جو سیل میں غم کے

یاد میں کِسی کی

آسماں نے اُن کو قدر سے

اپنے دامن میں بھر لیا ہے

یہ چمکتے سِتارے

زخِم دِل ہیں فلک کے

جل اُٹھے ہیں   تب  سے

آسماں کو جب سے

اپنے سِتمگر ہونے کا اِحساس ہو گیا ہے

یہ  چمکتے سِتارے

پھول ہیں کِسی لَحَد کے

رات جِن کو اپنی

سیاہ اُوڑھنی میں بھر کے لائ ہے

اُس آفتاب کے لئے

جو درد کی کا  یئنات  میں

روشنی    کو     بانٹ   کر

تمام دِن تمازت کو جھیل کر

سرِ شام ہی

موت کی  نیند  سو گیا ہے

THE  STARS

Dr.Syeda Imrana Nashtar Khairabadi

These  shining stars

Are nothing but my tears

Shed in the memory of someone

Carefully lifted into the

Blue expanse.

These shining stars

Are nothing but wounds in the sky

Burning since, the sky

Realized its cruelity.

These shining stars

Are nothing but flowers

Brought by the night

In her dark black shawl

To the grave of day

The sun spread, its warmth and light

Sacrificed for the world below

Has fallen exhausted

Into the sleep  of death.

رہائش:مشی گن (امریکہ
اصنافِ سخن :غزل، نظماولین مجموعہ کلام :تیرے نام کی آہٹ
شاعری کی ابتداء16، برس کی عمر میں پہلی نظم لکھیجہانِ ادب میں ناہید ورک کا نام بہت نیا ہے حا ل ہی میں انکا پہلا مجموعہ کلام تیرے نام کی آہٹ نواب سنز راولپنڈی سے شائع ہوا ہے ناہید کا اولین مجموعہ کلام انکی ذاتی وارداتوں کا اظہار یہ ہے انہوں نے اظہار کیلئے صنف غزل کا انتخاب کیا ہے
کیا کہا یہ دل میراناقابلِ تسخیر ہے
اب تجھے پانا ہی میرے خواب کی تعبیر ہے
یہ وہ شعرہے جس کو پڑھ کر جی چاہا ناہید کی شاعری کو اہتمام سے پڑھا جائے سو میں نے ناہید کے مجموعہ کلام کو پڑھنا شروع کیا اور اس کے ایسے ہی بے شمار اشعار نے مجھے دیر تک اپنے حصار میں رکھاجنکا تعلق اس کے دل کے نہاں خانوں سے ہے اگرچہ نئے آنے والے ہمیشہ اپنے پیش رو ؤں سے اثرات قبول کرتے ہیں اور ناہید بھی اردو شاعری کے معتبر ناموں سے متاثر ہوئے بغیر نہیںرہ سکیں مگر ایسا نہیں کہ اس نے ہو بہو ایک نقل کو تخلیق کا نام دے دیا ہو کہیں پر کسی (Inspiration) کے پورے اور ادھورے عکس دکھا ئی تو دیتے ہیں مگر غالب رنگ اس کا اپنا ہے
تمام عمر رہے ہم ہی کیوں وفا کرتے
کبھی تووہ بھی محبت کا حق ادا کرتے
گرہیں پڑی تھیں جو دل میں وہ سبھی کھل جاتیں
دل و نظر کی اگر تم نرم فضا کرتے
مرے سکوت سے جس کو رہے گلے کیا کیا
وہ میری بولتی آنکھوں سے رابطہ کرتے
تراہی نام ہے جو بس گیا ہے سانسوں میں
کسی کو تیرے سوا اور کیا خدا کرتے
کسی کی یاد کے موسم بلا رہے تھے اسے
وداع نہ کرتے اسے ہم تو اور کیا کرتے
تو جانتی ہے مجھے بھی بتا کبھی ناہید
وہ میری یاد میں کیا اب بھی ہیں جگا کرتے
اور یہی رویہ کسی اچھے اور سچے فنکار کے ارتقاء کی دلیل ہواکرتا ہے کہ وہ تجربات کی بھٹی میں تپ کر خود کو کندن ثابت کردے اور داخلی محسوسات کے ساتھ کائناتی مسائل کامشاہدہ بھی اس کے فن میں دکھا ئی دے مگر ناہید کی شاعری کی پہچان ان کے ذاتی اور داخلی محسوسات کا اظہار ہے یہی وجہ ہے کہ اس کی شاعری کہیں کہیں ایک سرگوشی بن کر چاروں اور پھیل جاتی ہے
چھوڑیے بھی میرے قصۂ غم کوآپ اس کو سمجھ نہ پائیں گے
ناہید نے شعر اس وقت لکھنا شروع کئے جب ان کی ہم عمر لڑکیا ں سمندر کی وسعتوں میں کھو جانے کی تمنا کرتیں ہیں ، گھنٹوں آئینے کے سامنے بیٹھ کر اپنے روپ کو سنوارتی اور سجاتی ہیں اور ان میں سے بیشتر خود کو کائنات کا مرکز اور محور تصور کرتی ہیں تب سے ناہید کی آنکھیں رت جگوں کے عذاب جھیل رہی ہیں شبِ تیرہ میں چمکتے ہوئے تاروں نے ان کی انگلیوں کو سنہری حرو ف لکھنا سکھائے اور ہجر کی راتیں ان پر نئے نئے اسرار کھولنے لگیں
 کوئی ہجر ہے نہ وصال ہے
سبھی خواہشوں کا یہ جال ہے
دلِ غم زدہ کا یہ حال ہے
سرِ شام سے ہی نڈھال ہے
مری آ نکھ میں جو ٹھہر گیا
تری فرقتوں کا ملال ہے
مرا ہو کے بھی نہ وہ ہو سکا
یہ عجیب صورتحال ہے
مجھے آپ نے بھی برا کہا
مجھے ہے تو بس یہ ملال ہے
تمہیں صرف اوروں کی فکر ہے
کہ مرا بھی کوئی خیال ہے
تجھے کیوں نہ میری خبر ہوئی
مرا تجھ سے بس یہ سوال ہے
مرا درد حا صلِ عشق ہے
کہیں اور ایسی مثال ہے
‘ناہید گذشتہ بیس برس سے اپنے اہلِ خانہ کے ساتھ امریکہ میں مقیم ہیں انہوں نے اپنی تعلیم بھی وہیں سے مکمل کی ، شاعری ان کا اوڑھنا بچھونا ہے انہوں نے بتایا کہ وہ اتنا لکھ چکی ہیں کہ اس سے ان کے مزید مجموعہ کلام بھی چھپ سکتے ہیں یقینا ایسا ہی ہو گا کیونکہ کربِ تخلیق اسی کو کہتے ہیں انہوں نے بتایا کہ ان کے والدین کی وفات نے ان کی ذندگی کو بدل کر رکھ دیا اور ان کی کمی نے ان کے فن پر بھی گہرے اثرات مرتب کئے
کر لیا تم نے کنارا ہم سے
کس طرح ہوگا گذارا ہم سے
خود بھی دنیا سے گئے اور اس پر
لے گئے چین ہما را ہم سے
ذندگی میں ہے اندھیرا ہر سو
جب سے روٹھا وہ ستارہ ہم سے
کس سفر پر ہو کہ چاہ کر بھی اب
تم کو جائے نہ پکارا ہم سے
چاہ کر بھی نہ کبھی ہر گز
ہاںحق ادا ہو گا تمہا را ہم سے
ایک اور غز ل جسے انہوں نے اپنے والد کے نام موسوم کیا ہے

 

 کڑی تھی دھوپ اور وہ بے سائبان کر گیا مجھ کو
بھری دنیا تھی لیکن بے جہا ںوہ کر گیا مجھ کو
کہاں کے رنج دے کر نیم جاں وہ کر گیا مجھ کو
کہ خود میرے لئے ہی رائیگاں وہ کر گیا مجھ کو
 ضرورت تھی جہاں سب سے زیادہ ساتھ کی اس کے
اسی اک موڑ پر خالی مکاں وہ کر گیا مجھ کو

 

مرے سارے یقیں جھوٹے، مرے سارے گماں دھوکہ
ہر اک جائے اماں میں بے اماں وہ کر گیا مجھ کو
کھلے ہیں پھول اس کی یاد کے ہر سمت آنگن میں
ؓبہاروں میں ہی کیوں وقفِ خزاںوہ کر گیا مجھ کو؟
‘اگرچہ ناہید کی شاعری کی بنیاد ذاتی محسوسات اور داخلی کرب ہے مگر ان کا طرزِ تحریر خاصا متاثر کن ہے یوں دکھائی دیتا ہے کہ ان کی فگار انگلیاں اپنے رائیگاں ہونے کے احساس کو کبھی بھلانہیںپاتیں اور اپنی ہار اور شکستگی کو تسلیم نہیں کرنا چاہتیں یہی وجہ ہے کہ انکے متعدد شعر خونِ دل میں ڈوبے ہوئے محسوس ہو تے ہیں اردوشاعری کا کلاسیکی حصہ ہے ہی وہی جسمیںدردو ہجر کا بیان ہے اور اس درد کے بیان میں موجود سچائی ہے
رہنا تھا مجھ کو تیری نظر کے کمال میں
لیکن میں دن گزار رہی ہوں زوال میں
گھیرا ہے اسطرح مجھے وحشت کے جال نے
سب خواب میرے ڈوب گئے اس ملال میں
ْْقسمت سے راہ میں جو جزیرے ہمیں ملے
تیرے گمان میں تھے نہ میرے خیال میں
یہ ناہید کے سفر کی ابتداء ہے اور اگر انہوں نے ریاضت جاری رکھی تو ان کے فن میں نکھار پیدا ہوگا مگر اس کیلئے ضروری ہے کہ اپنے فن کو ذندہ رکھنے کی خاطر اسے
بننے سے بچائیںجیسا کہ ہمارے ہاں ایک رواج چل پڑا ہے بالخصوص الفاظ کے استعمال میں ضروری پابندیوں کا خیال رکھ کر ہی شاعری میں زندگی کی حرارت پیدا کی جاسکتی ہے اور اسکے اثرات دیرپا ہوسکتے ہیں وگرنہ شاعری کی کتابیںتو آئے دن چھپتی ہی رہتی ہیں لیکن ایک باحوصلہ قلمکار وہی ہوتا ہے جو رتوں کے بار آور ہونے تک خاموشی سے آبلہ پا چلتا رہے جب بنجر زمینیں پھول بن جاتیں ہیں تو سارا چمن خود ہی ان کی خوشبو سے مہکنے لگتا ہے اردو ادب کے چاہنے والے ناہید سے مستقبل میں اور زیادہ خوبصورت شاعری کی توقع کرتے ہیں

نقشبند قمرنقوی بھوپالی کی مایہ ناز تخلیق حمّاسہ جلدششم۔مسلم سلیم
سلسلہ جاری۔دنےا میں35 ہزار سے زائد اشعار پر مشتمل دنیا کی واحد کتاب
hammasa 6نقشبند قمرنقوی بھوپالی کی حمّاسہ اردو ادب کی تارےخ مےں اپنی نوعےت کی واحد کتاب ہے۔یہ ہندوپاک کی منظوم تارےخ ہے (محمد بن قاسم سے تقسےم ہند تک اور پھر پاکستان) ۔ کتاب۶ جلدوں مےں مرتب کی گئی ہے۔ اردو مےں اس سے مماثل نوعےت کی واحد کتاب حفےظ جالندھری کی شاہنامہ ¿ِ اسلام ہے۔ لےکن یہ بےشتر سےرة النبی ﷺ مبنی ہے اور اسکے واقعات چند غزوات و متعلقات تک محفوظ ہےں۔ اسکے اشعار کی تعداد بھی محض چند ہزار ہے۔ اسکے مقابلے مےں حماسہ جلد اول ہی مےں 6300 اشعار ہےں۔ اےلےئڈ کے خالق ہومر کے سامنے اےک افسانہ تھا جسکے ذرےعے وہ ہر عقلی اور غےر عقلی واقعات کو بےان کرتا چلا گےا ہے۔ فردوسی کے شاہنامے کا زمانہ بھی ماقبلِ تارےخ ہے۔اردو مراثی مےں بھی اسلامی تارےخ کے حوالے موجود ہےں۔ ان کے بعد حفےط نے اس عمل کو ضخامت اور اجتماعےت بخشی۔ لےکن نقشبند قمرنقوی بھوپالی کی حمّاسہ مجھے ان سب سے آگے کی چےز معلوم ہوتی ہے۔
قمر نقوی کی تارےخِ پاکستان وہند پر گہری نظر ہے۔ شاعرانہ مجبوریوں سے قطع نظر انھوں نے تارےخی حقائق سے رو گردانی نہےں کی ہے اور سچائی کا دامن ہاتھ سے نہےں چھوڑا ہے۔ واقعات کو اےسے ہی مظوم کےا ہے جےسے وہ مستند توارےخ مےں درج ہےں۔ یہ بذاتِ خود اےک بڑا کارنامہ ہے۔ لےکن نقشبند قمرنقوی بھوپالی نے واقعات اور حالات منظوم ہی نہےں کےا بلکہ ان کا مورّخانہ تجزیہ بھی کےا ہے۔ وہ صرف شاعرہی نہےں ہےں، غوروفکر کرنے بھی جانتے ہےں۔ ان کے یہ تجزئے ان کی تارےخی بصےرت کے شاہد ہےں۔ فاضل مورخ اور شاعر نے نہ صرف یہ کہ تارےخی واقعات کو نقشہ کھےنچ دےا ہے بلکہ ”حماسہ“ کی ادبی حےثےت بھی بہت بلند ہے جس کے مطالعہ سے ذہن کو تسکےن اور ذوق کو آسودگی ملتی ہے کےونکہ حمّاسہ مےں تارےخ بھی ہے، ادب و فکر بھی اور غنا ءبھی۔
مورخےن اور ادباءپر تارےخ کا لکھنا گوےا لازم ہے البتہ تارےخ کو مفصل، مکمل اوعر مستند حالت مےں نظم کرنے بہت دشوار کام ہے۔ نقشبند قمرنقوی بھوپالی کی یہ تصنےف اےک گراں مایہ کتاب ہے اور امےد ہے کہ قارئےن نہ صرف اس سے متاثر ہونگے بلکہ اسے ہر طبقہ ¿ِ خےال مےں فکر و ادب کا اعلیٰ مقام حاصل ہوگا۔
چھٹی (ششم) جلد میں محمد بن قاسم سے صدر ضیاءالحق تک کے منظوم حالات خوبصورتی اور چابکدستی سے بیان کیا گیا ہے۔مصنف کا پتہ ۔ نقشبند قمرنقوی بھوپالی ۔ ۶۴۴۶۔ ٰنڈےانا پولس، ٹلسا، او۔کے۔۶۳۱۴۷، ےو۔اےس۔اے۔ ناشر۔ اےجوکےشنل بک ہاو ¿س، ۸۰۱۳،وکےل اسٹرےٹ، کوچہ پنڈت، لال کنواں، دہلی۔۶، انڈےا۔

عیش کنول فلمی شاعر تھے

 عیش کنول کا ایک مشہور گیت فلم سنگرام سے
 میں تو تیرے حسیں خیالوں میں کھو گیا
دنیا یہ کہہ رہی ہے کہ دیوانہ ہو گیا
 یہ حسن تیرا کھلتا ہوا سا گلاب ہے
آنکھیں تیری حسین کنول کا شباب ہے
تو لاجواب ہے
وہ خوش نصیب ہے تیری محفل میں جو گیا
کوی نہ جس کو سمجھا تو ایک ایسا راز ہے
مجھکو بھی آج اپنے مقدر پہ ناز ہے
تو دل نواز ہے
عاشق ہوں تیری زلف کے ساۓ میں سو گیا
دامن چھڑا کے جاؤ نہ اتنے غرور سے
کیا ہے قصور پوچھتے ہیں ہم حضور سے
دیکھو نہ دور سے
کر دو خطا معاف جو ہونا تھا ھو گیا

میں تو تیرے حسیں خیالوں میں کھوگیا

اپنوں میں دوری لاتی ہے وہ شہرت ہو یا رسوائی

جیون کے کورے کاغذ پر جینا ہوگا تحریروں میں

اجلے پنوں پر سیاہی سے کرنی ہوگی حرف آرائی

ہم ہیں اس کا ہی عکس مگر ہے بیچ میں جیون کا درپن

جب ٹوٹے گا جیون درپن تب ظاہر ہوگی سچائی

پہلے تو خود سے دور کیا پھر سزا سنائی جینے کی

جی چکے تو یہ فرمان ملا اب پھر سے ہوگی سنوائی

وہ خود میں مکمل ہے تو پھر کیونکر وہ خود میں رہ نہ سکا

کیوں بکھر گیا ذرہ ذرہ کیوں سہہ نہ سکا وہ تنہائ

परिचय : दीप्ति मिश्र : 

दीप्ति मिश्र की एक ग़ज़ल का रदीफ़ “है तो है” इतना मशहूर हुआ कि आज वो दीप्ति मिश्र का दूसरा नाम बन गया है –

वो नहीं मेरा मगर उस से मुहब्बत है तो है
ये अगर रस्मों -रिवाजों से बगावत है तो है

उतर प्रदेश के एक छोटे से कस्बेनुमा शहर लखीमपुर – खीरी में दीप्ति मिश्र का जन्म श्री विष्णु स्वरुप पाण्डेय के यहाँ 15 नवम्बर 1960 को हुआ। गोरखपुर से हाई स्कूल करने के बाद दीप्ति जी ने बी.ए. बनारस हिन्दू यूनिवर्सिटी से किया। मेरठ यूनवर्सिटी से एम्.ए किया।

सन् 1997 में दीप्ति मिश्र का पहला काव्य संकलन “बर्फ़ में पलती हुई आग ” मंज़रे -आम पे आया। इस शाइरी में मुहब्बत के रंगों के साथ औरत के वजूद की संजीदा फ़िक्र भी थी। दीप्ति मिश्र की शाइरी में बेबाकी, सच्चाई और साफगोई मिसरी की डली की तरह घुली रहती है।

दुखती रग पर उंगली रखकर पूछ रहे हो कैसी हो
तुमसे ये उम्मीद नहीं थी ,दुनिया चाहे जैसी हो 

दीप्ति मिश्र दूरदर्शन और आकाशवाणी से अधिकृत अदाकारा थी। अभिनय के शौक़ के चलते 2001 में मुंबई आ गई। राजश्री प्रोडक्शन के चर्चित टी.वी सीरियल “वो रहने वाली महलों की ” के सभी थीम गीत दीप्ति मिश्र ने लिखे।

औरत-मर्द के रिश्तों की पड़ताल दीप्ति जी ने बड़ी बारीकी से की है और उसपे अपनी राय भी बे-बाकी से दी जो उनके शे’रों में साफ़ देखने को मिलता है।

दिल से अपनाया न उसने ,ग़ैर भी समझा नहीं
ये भी इक रिश्ता है जिसमें कोई भी रिश्ता नहीं

तुम्हे किसने कहा था ,तुम मुझे चाहो, बताओ तो
जो दम भरते हो चाहत का ,तो फिर उसको निभाओ तो

दीप्ति मिश्र का दूसरा काव्य संकलन 2005 में आया जिसका नाम वही उनकी ग़ज़ल का रदीफ़ जो दीप्ति का दूसरा नाम अदब की दुनिया में बन गया “है तो है “। इसका विमोचन पद्म-विभूषण पं.जसराज ने किया सन् 2008 में दीप्ति मिश्र का एक और संकलन उर्दू में आया “बात दिल की कह तो दें “।

दीप्ति मिश्र बहुत से टेलीविजन धारावाहिकों में अभिनय किया है जिसमें प्रमुख है जहाँ पे बसेरा हो , कुंती, उर्मिला, क़दम, हक़ीक़त , कुमकुम, घर एक मंदिर और शगुन। तनु वेड्स मनु , एक्सचेंज ऑफर और साथी -साथी संघाती(भोजपुरी ) फिल्मों में भी दीप्ति मिश्र ने अपने अभिनय किया है। आने वाली फ़िल्म “पत्थर बेज़ुबान ” के तमाम गीत दीप्ति मिश्र ने लिखे। दीप्ति मिश्र की ग़ज़लों का एक एल्बम “हसरतें ” भी आ चुका हैजिसे गुलाम अली और कविता कृष्णमूर्ती ने अपनी आवाज़ से नवाज़ा है .

सच को मैंने सच कहा ,जब कह दिया तो कह दिया

अब   ज़माने   की   नज़र   में   ये   हिमाकत   है तो है
एक शख्सियत ….  दीप्ति मिश्र
 शाइरी के हाल और माज़ी के पन्ने अगर पलट के देखें तो एक बात साफ़ है कि मरदाना फितरत ने  अदबी लिहाज़ से शायरात की ग़ज़ल में हाज़िरी को बा-मुश्किल माना है  हालांकि  कुछ ऐसी शायरात है जिन्होंने अपने   शानदार  क़लाम   से इस  मरदाना फितरत को मजबूर किया है कि वे अदब में   इनकी  मौजूदगी  का एहतराम करें  ! आज के दौर में कुछ ड्रामेबाज़ शाइरों और दूसरो से  ग़ज़ल कहलवा कर लाने वाली कुछ शायरात ने अदब कि आबरू को ख़तरे  में डाल दिया है !जिन शायरात ने अपने होने का एहसास करवाया है उनकी तादाद शायद एक आदमी के हाथ में जितनी उंगलियाँ होती है उनसे   ज़ियादा नहीं है ! अदब में बे- अदब होते अदीबों की गुटबाजी,बड़े – बड़े शाइरों  के  अलग अलग धड़े  ,ग़ज़ल को ऐसे माहौल में सांस लेना मुश्किल हो गया है ऐसे में एक नाम दूसरों  से अलग नज़र आता है वो नाम है शाइरा “दीप्ति मिश्र” ! पहली मरतबा 1997  में  दिल्ली में एक  कवि – सम्मलेन में उन्हें सुनने का अवसर मिला !  दीप्ति मिश्र को दावते – सुखन दिया गया  ,बिना किसी बनावट के अपने चेहरे जैसी मासूमियत से उन्होंने ग़ज़ल पढ़ी  ,ग़ज़ल का लहजा बिल्कुल अलग ,बहर ऐसी की जो कभी पहले न सुनी  , रदीफ़ ऐसा जिसे निभाना वाकई मुश्किल ही नहीं बेहद मुश्किल  मगर दीप्ति मिश्र अपने अलेदा से अंदाज़ में अपनी ग़ज़ल पढ़कर बैठ गई  और सामईन के दिल में छोड़ गई  अपने लहजे और कहन की गहरी छाप ! उनकी उस ग़ज़ल का  रदीफ़ “है तो है”  इतना मशहूर हुआ की आज वो दीप्ति मिश्र का दूसरा नाम बन गया है ! ग़ज़ल के बड़े बड़े समीक्षक ,आलोचक इस ग़ज़ल को सुनने के बाद  ये लिखने पे विवश हुए की दीप्ति मिश्र के रूप में ग़ज़ल को एक नया लहजा मिल गया है ,दीप्ति की दीप्ति अब मधम होने वाली नहीं है !जिस ग़ज़ल ने दीप्ति मिश्र को अदब की दुनिया में एक पहचान दी उसके चंद अशआर मुलाहिजा फरमाएं :—
वो नहीं मेरा मगर उस से मुहब्बत है तो है
ये अगर रस्मों -रिवाजो से बगावत है तो है
जल गया परवाना ग़र तो क्या ख़ता है शम्मा की
रात भर जलना-जलाना उसकी क़िस्मत है तो है
दोस्त बनकर दुश्मनों सा वो सताता है मुझे
फिर भी उस ज़ालिम पे मरना अपनी फितरत है तो है
इस ग़ज़ल ने दीप्ति मिश्र को शाइरी के समन्दर में ऐसी कश्ती बना दिया जिसने फिर न तो कभी किसी  किनारे की तमन्ना की न ही  किसी   तूफ़ान से वो खौफ़ज़दा  रही !
उतर प्रदेश के एक छोटे से कस्बेनुमा शहर लखीमपुर – खीरी में  दीप्ति मिश्र का जन्म श्री विष्णु स्वरुप पाण्डेय   के यहाँ 15 नवम्बर 1960 को हुआ !इनके वालिद मुनिसपल बोर्ड में अधिकारी थे सो जहाँ जहाँ उनकी मुलाज़मत रही वहीं वहीं दीप्ति जी की शुरूआती तालीम हुई ! गोरखपुर से हाई स्कूल करने के बाद दीप्ति जी ने बी.ए बनारस हिन्दू यूनिवर्सिटी  से किया  !बचपन से ही   इन्हें लिखने और अभिनय का शौक़ था  और ये परवान चढ़ा ईल्म- ओ- तहज़ीब के शहर बनारस में ! दिसम्बर 1982   में दीप्ति जी उस बंधन में बंधी  जिसकी डोर में बंधना हर लड़की का सपना होता है, दीप्ति पाण्डेय अब दीप्ति मिश्र हो गई और वे फिर अपने शौहर के साथ ग़ाज़ियाबाद आ गई !तालीम से उनका राब्ता ख़त्म ना हुआ ग़ाज़ियाबाद में इन्होने मेरठ यूनवर्सिटी से एम्.ए किया और इसी दरमियान गीत और ग़ज़ल के बहुत बड़े स्तम्भ डॉ. कुंवर बैचैन से दीप्ति जी की मुलाक़ात हुई !दीप्ति जी पहले आज़ाद नज़्में लिखती थी इनकी नज़्में पढ़कर किसी ने कहा कि इन नज्मों में परवीन शाकिर कि खुश्बू आती है !अपने जज़बात  ,अपनी अभिवयक्ति को बहर और छंद कि बंदिश में लिखना दीप्ति जी को शुरू में ग़वारा नहीं हुआ  पर कुंवर बैचैन साहेब कि रहनुमाई ने ग़ज़ल से दीप्ति मिश्र का त-आर्रुफ़  करवाया !हर शाइर /शाइरा कि ज़िन्दगी में ये वक़्त आता है कि वो जो भी कहे सब बहर में आ जाता है, दीप्ति मिश्र अब ग़ज़ल कि राह पे  चल पड़ी  थी ये नब्बे के दशक के शुरूआती साल थे !
1997 में दीप्ति मिश्र का पहला मजमुआ ए क़लाम “बर्फ़ में पलती हुई आग ” मंज़रे आम पे आया ,इस किताब का विमोचन साहित्यकार और उस वक़्त के कादम्बिनी के सम्पादक  राजेन्द्र  अवस्थी जी ने किया ! इससे पहले  अक्टूबर 1995 में  एक दिलचस्प बात ये हुई की दीप्ति जी ने अपनी एक ग़ज़ल कादम्बिनी में छपने के लिए भेजी ,वो ग़ज़ल ये कहकर लौटा दी गई कि  रचना कादम्बिनी के मेयार की नहीं है और फिर वही ग़ज़ल उनसे विशेष आग्रह कर कादम्बिनी के लिए मांगी गई !  उस ग़ज़ल का ये शे’र बाद में बड़ा मशहूर हुआ :-
उम्र के उस मोड़ पर हमको मिली आज़ादियाँ
कट चुके थे पंख जब ,उड़ने का फन जाता रहा
इसके बाद दीप्ति जी को कवि सम्मेंलनों के निमंत्रण आने लगे मगर कवि-सम्मलेन के मंचों पे होने वाले ड्रामे, कवियत्रियों के साथ बर्ताव नामचीन कवियों कि गुटबाजी ये सब देख उन्होंने मंच पे जाना छोड़ दिया !रायपुर के अपने पहले  मुशायरे में दीप्ति जी के क़लाम पे जो सच्ची दाद उन्हें मिली उसकी मुहब्बतों ने उन्हें कवियत्री से शाइरा बना दिया !
वक़्त के साथ – साथ दीप्ति मिश्र शाइरी की एक ख़ूबसूरत तस्वीर हो गई जिसकी शाइरी में मुहब्बत के रंगों  के साथ औरत के वजूद कि संजीदा फ़िक्र भी थी ! ग़ज़ल कि इस  नायाब तस्वीर बनाने में एक मुसव्विर  के ब्रश का भी कमाल  शामिल था वो थे मारुफ़ शाइर मंगल नसीम साहब !
दीप्ति मिश्र की शाइरी   में बेबाकी,  सच्चाई और साफगोई   मिसरी की डली की तरह घुली रहती है ,सच हमेशा कड़वा होता है पर दीप्ति जी  अपने कहन की माला में सच के फूलों  को इस तरह पिरोती है कि उस माला से सिर्फ़  मेयारी शाइरी  की खुश्बू आती है :–
उनसे कोई उम्मीद करें भी तो क्या भला
जिनसे किसी तरह की शिकायत नहीं रही
दिल रख दिया है ताक पर हमने संभाल कर
लो अब  किसी तरह की भी दिक्क़त नहीं रही
***
दुखती रग पर उंगली रखकर पूछ रहे हो कैसी हो
तुमसे ये उम्मीद नहीं थी ,दुनिया चाहे जैसी हो
दीप्ति मिश्र दूरदर्शन और आकाशवाणी से अधिकृत अदाकारा  थी सो अपने अभिनय के शौक़ के चलते 2001 में मुंबई आ गई पर शाइरी उनका पहला शौक़ ही नहीं जुनून भी  था !मुंबई के एक मुशायरे में उन्होंने अपनी ग़ज़ल पढ़ी तो एक साहब उनके ज़बरदस्त मुरीद हो गये ,मुशायरे के बाद उन्होंने अपना कार्ड उन्हें दिया और मिलने का आग्रह किया जब दीप्ति जी ने घर जाके वो कार्ड देखा तो वो राजश्री प्रोडक्शन के राजकुमार बड़जात्या का था ! राजकुमार बड़जात्या ने उन्हें  सिर्फ़ अपने प्रोडक्शन के लिए लिखने का आग्रह किया  पर दीप्ति जी के मन में जो परिंदा था उसने किसी क़फ़स में रहना गवारा नहीं समझा और बड़ी शालीनता से दीप्ति मिश्र ने उनका प्रस्ताव नामंजूर कर दिया हालांकि उनके चर्चित टी.वी सीरियल “वो रहने वाली महलों की ” के सभी थीम गीत दीप्ति मिश्र ने लिखे !
दीप्ति मिश्र अपनी  शाइरी में  सिर्फ़ औरत होने का दर्द बयान नहीं करती बल्कि औरत – मर्द के रिश्तों की उलझी हुई कड़ियों को खूबसूरती से सुलझाती है और मर्दों से अपना मुकाबिला सिर्फ़ अपने औरत होने भर के एहसास के साथ करती है ! औरत – मर्द के रिश्तों की पड़ताल दीप्ति जी ने बड़ी बारीकी से की है और उसपे अपनी राय भी बे-बाकी से दी जो उनके शे’रों में साफ़ देखने को मिलता है !
दिल से अपनाया न उसने ,ग़ैर भी समझा नहीं
ये भी इक रिश्ता है जिसमें कोई भी रिश्ता नहीं
****
तुम्हे किसने कहा था ,तुम मुझे चाहो, बताओ तो
जो दम भरते हो चाहत का ,तो फिर उसको निभाओ तो
मेरी चाहत भी है तुमको और अपना घर भी प्यारा है
निपट लूंगी मैं हर ग़म से ,तुम अपना घर बचाओ तो
*****
जिससे तुमने ख़ुद को देखा ,हम वो एक नज़रिया थे
हम से  ही अब क़तरा हो तुम हम से  ही तुम दरिया थे
सारा का सारा खारापन   हमने   तुमसे    पाया है
तुमसे मिलने से पहले तो हम एक  मीठा दरिया थे
दीप्ति मिश्र का दूसरा मजमुआ ए क़लाम मंज़रे आम पे  2005  में   आया जिसका नाम वही उनकी ग़ज़ल का रदीफ़ जो दीप्ति का दूसरा नाम अदब की दुनिया में बन गया “है तो है ” इसका इज़रा  (विमोचन)  पद्म-विभूषण श्री जसराज ने किया और इस लोकार्पण में पं.जसराज ने उनकी बेहद मकबूल ग़ज़ल का मतला (वो नहीं मेरा मगर उससे मुहब्बत है तो है )गाया भी ! 2008    में दीप्ति मिश्र का एक और मजमुआ उर्दू में आया “बात दिल की कह तो दें “
ख़ुदा की मेहरबानी दीप्ति साहिबा पे कुछ ज़ियादा ही हुई है वे शाइरा के साथ – साथ बेहतरीन अदाकारा भी है इन्होने बहुत से टेलीविजन धारावाहिकों में अभिनय किया है जिसमें प्रमुख है जहाँ पे बसेरा हो , कुंती, उर्मिला, क़दम, हक़ीक़त , कुमकुम, घर एक मंदिर और शगुन !बहुत से धारावाहिकों के थीम गीत भी दीप्ति जी ने लिखे है ! तनु वेड्स मनु , एक्सचेंज   ऑफर और साथी -कंधाती(भोजपुरी ) फिल्मों में भी दीप्ति मिश्र ने अपने अभिनय का लोहा मनवाया है !
आने वाली फ़िल्म “पत्थर बेज़ुबान ” के तमाम गीत दीप्ति मिश्र ने लिखे है जिसमे कैलाश खैर ,रूप कुमार राठौड़ , श्रेया घोषाल ,और एक ठुमरी शोमा घोष ने गाई  है !दीप्ति मिश्र की गजलों का एक एल्बम “हसरतें ”  भी आ चुका है जिसे  ग़ुलाम अली और कविता कृष्णा मूर्ति ने अपनी आवाज़ से सजाया है !
दीप्ति मिश्र की शाइरी का एक पहलू अध्यात्म भी है, ज़िन्दगी के फ़लसफ़े को भी उन्होंने मुख्तलिफ अंदाज़ से  शे’र बनाया है :—
बेहद बैचेनी है लेकिन मकसद ज़ाहिर कुछ भी नहीं
पाना-खोना ,हँसना-रोना ,क्या है आख़िर कुछ भी नहीं
*****
सब यही  समझे  नदी सागर  से मिलकर  थम  गई
पर नदी  तो वो सफ़र  है जो कभी  थमता  नहीं
दीप्ति मिश्र ने दो मिसरों में अपनी मुकम्मल बात कहने का दूसरा फन “दोहे ” भी लिखे और  दोहों पे भी अपने कहन की मोहर लगाईं :–
रिश्तों के  बाज़ार में ,   चाहत   का   व्यापार !
तोल ,मोल कर बिक रहे, इश्क़ ,मुहब्बत ,प्यार !!
अपनी अपनी कल्पना ,अपना अपना ज्ञान !
जिसकी जैसी आस्था ,वैसा है भगवान् !!
बहुत सी अदबी तंजीमों ने दीप्ति मिश्र को एज़ाज़ से नवाज़ा मगर सबसे बड़ा उनके लिए इनआम उनकी नज्मों और उनकी गजलों के वो मुरीद है जो इनसे  अपने दिल पे लगे ज़ख्मों   के लिए  मरहम  का काम लेते है ! दीप्ति मिश्र ने  जीवन के ऐसे  पहलुओं को शाइरी बनाया है जिसके बारे में सोचा भी नहीं जा सकता !उनके शे’र अपना   ज़ाविया और  तेवर भी अलग रखते है ! दीप्ति मिश्र की शाइरी  रूह  और जिस्म  के फासले  को अपने ही  अन्दाज़ से परिभाषित करती है :–
 अपनी -अपनी क़िस्मत सबकी अपना-अपना हिस्सा है
जिस्म की ख़ातिर लाखों सामाँ ,रूह की ख़ातिर कुछ भी नहीं
******
जिस्म क्या चीज़ है ये जाँ क्या है
और दोनों के दरमियाँ क्या है
****
फ़क़त जिस्म ही जिस्म से मिल रहे हैं
ये कैसी जवानी ?ये कैसी जवानी ?
दीप्ति मिश्र नाम के शाइरी के  अनोखे तेवर पर अदब को फ़ख्र  है और अदब को उनसे  उम्मीदें भी बहुत है !आख़िर में दीप्ति जी के इन मिसरों  के साथ विदा लेता हूँ ..अगले हफ्ते फिर किसी शख्सियत से रु-बरु करवाने का वादा …
बहुत फ़र्क़ है ,फिर भी है एक जैसी
हमारी कहानी ,तुम्हारी कहानी
तेरे पास ऐ ज़िन्दगी अपना क्या है
जो है सांस आनी ,वही सांस जानी
विजेंद्र शर्मा

Qaisar Ul Jafri

اتنا سناٹا ہے بستی میں کہ ڈر جائے گا

چاند نکلا بھی تو چپ چاپ گزر جائے گا

کیا خبر تھی کہ ہوا تیز چلے گی اتنی

سارا صحرا مرے چہرے پہ بکھر جائے گا

ہم کسی موڑ پہ رک جائیں گے چلتے چلتے

راستہ ٹوٹے ہوئے پل پہ ٹھہر جائے گا

بادبانوں نے جو احسان جتایا اس پر

بیچ دریا میں وہ کشتی سے اتر جائے گا

چلتے رہیے کہ صف ہم سفراں لمبی ہے

جس کو رستے میں ٹھہرنا ہے ٹھہر جائے گا

در و دیوار پہ صدیوں کی کہر چھائی ہے

گھر میں سورج بھی جو آیا تو ٹھٹھر جائے گا

فن وہ جگنو ہے جو اڑتا ہے ہوا میں قیصرؔ

بند کر لوگے جو مٹھی میں تو مر جائے گا

Abdullah Hussein: In 1963, an unknown writer wrote a novel and sprang it on an unsuspecting Urdu-speaking world. It made him immortal. The novel was Udaas Naslein, its writer Abdullah Hussein. Born in Rawalpindi, raised in Gujarat, a small town near Lahore, Hussein found a job in a cement factory and took to writing out of sheer boredom. What emerged from his pen was a chronicle of modern India, one that reflected the angst of an entire generation and came to be regarded as the foremost Urdu novel of its time. Udaas Naslein was chosen for translation under the UNESCO’s collection of Representative Works in World Languages. For selection, a book must be at least 25 years old and in continuous print. Translated into English by Hussein himself under the title The Weary Generations, it was published in India by HarperCollins. Immaculately dressed, and very tall, Hussein is quite the pucca Englishman! He is also famously reclusive and chary of talking about his craft. Upon retiring as a chemical engineer in the United Kingdom, he ran a liquor off-licence in London and now lives in the Hertfordshire countryside.

  قیصر تمکین
( پورا نام: شریف احمد قیصر تمکین علوی) .ادیب و صحافی.  یکم جنوری 1938 کو لکھنؤ میں پید ہوئے اور
  25 نومبر 2009 کو لیڈز برطانیہ میں آخری سانسیں لیں۔ برطانیہ میں وہ 1965 میں جابسے تھے لیکن تازہ بستیاں آباد کرنے کے باوجود ان کا دل “نکھلئو” ہی میں دھڑکتا رہا تھا۔ یہ الگ بات ہے کہ کہنے والے نے کہا کہ لکھنؤ پہلے ایک تہذیب تھا، اب محض ایک شہر ہے۔ گومتی ایک دریا اور شام اودھ بس ایک افسانہ۔ وہ شبستاں نہ پری چہرگاں . . . . جس دن جان عالم پیا تخت سے اترے تھے، لکھنؤ کو اسی دن خزاں نے آلیا تھا۔ نہ جنوں رہا نہ پری رہی یہاں تک کہ شاخ نہال غم بھی کمھلا گئی۔  ایک انٹرویو میں قیصر تمکین سے سوال کیا گیا:  س : افسانہ نگاری کے ساتھ ساتھ آپ بطور صحافی بھی مختلف اخبارات سے وابستہ رہے ہیں آپ نے اپنی افسانہ نگاری کو صحافتی اثبات سے کس طرح محفوظ رکھا؟ جواب ملاحظہ ہو: جب کوئی شخص سائیکل سے گر کر کسی حادثے سے دوچار ہوتا ہے تو ایک صحافی اس واقعے کی رپورٹ لکھ کر خبر بنا دیتا ہے اور جب ایسا واقعہ کسی حساس شخص یا لکھنے والے کے ذہن کو جھنجھناکے رکھ دیتا ہے تو پھر وہاں صحافت ختم ہو جاتی ہے اور کہانی آ جاتی ہے ۔ میں نے ہمیشہ کوشش کی ہے کہ میری کہانیوں میں جرنلزم نہ آئے اور ہر کہانی میں کوئی نہ کوئی بات کہہ جاؤں میں نے اس ضمن میں خواجہ احمد عباس اور کرشن چندر سے سبق حاصل کیا ہے کیونکہ یہ دونوں لکھنے والے اپنی کہانیوں میں نعرے بازی کرتے ہیں اور اپنی بات ٹھیک سے نہیں کہہ پاتے اور اپنی باتوں کو بڑے خوبصورت پیرائے میں شفیق الرحمن کہہ جاتے ہیں۔ اُن کے ایک ایک جملے پر انسان سوچتا رہ جاتا ہے ، فنکار وہی ہوتا ہے جس کی تحریر چونکا دے اور انسان تنہائی میں اس کے بارے میں سوچتا رہے جب کوئی شخص مشاعرے میں جاتا ہے تو وہ کئی اشعار سن کر واہ واہ کرتا ہے لیکن دیکھنا یہ چاہئے کہ کیا وہ اشعار اُسے تنہائی میں بھی یاد آتے ہیں۔ تنہائی میں تو صرف غالب یاد آتا ہے، اقبال یاد آتا ہے۔  قیصر تمکین کی تخلیقات میں مندرجہ ذیل کتب شامل ہیں:  جگ ہنسائی (افسانے) ١٩٥٧،  سواستگا (افسانے) ١٩٨٧ اللہ کے بندے (افسانے) ١٩٨٩،  یروشلم، یروشلم (افسانے) ١٩٩٣، او یاسمین (افسانے) ١٩٩٧، شعر و نظر (تنقید) ١٩٩٧، صدی کے موڑ پر – افسانے، پس نوشت – افسانے، کفن کھسوٹ کو قیصر تمکین اپنا بہترین افسانہ قرار دیتے ہیں۔ کفن کھسوٹ، بریڈ فورڈ کے مجلے مخزن کے دوسرے (2002) شمارے میں شائع ہوا تھا۔  ان کے علاوہ قیصر تمکین نے اپنی خودنوشت بھی “خبر گیر” کے عنوان سے تحریر کی۔ خبر گیر، اورینٹ پبلشر لاہور سے جون 1987 میں شایع ہوئی تھی۔

Abdullah Hussain

اردو زبان کے معروف ترین اور عہد ساز ناول نگاروں میں سے ایک عبداللہ حسین چوارسی برس کی عمر میں۴ ر جولائی کو لاہور میں انتقال کر گئے۔۔ وہ گزشتہ ایک برس سے خون کے سرطان سے نبرد آزما تھے اور چند روز پہلے ہسپتال سے گھر منتقل ہو گئے تھے۔ سمیت مختلف مکتبہ ہائے فکر سے تعلق رکھنے والی سرکردہ شخصیات نے عبداللہ حسین کی موت پر گہرے دکھ اور افسوس کا اظہار کیا ہے۔عبداللہ حسین کی تخلیقی صلاحیتوں کے اعتراف میں حکومت پاکستان نے انہیں 2012ئ میں انہیں ’کماِل فن‘ لٹریچر ایوارڈ سے نواز تھا۔ پاکستان میں یہ ایوارڈ ادب کی صنف میں سب سے زیادہ معتبر تصور کیا جاتا ہے جبکہ اس کے ساتھ پانچ لاکھ روپے کی نقد رقم بھی دی جاتی ہے۔
عبداللہ حسین کا ناول ’اداس نسلیں‘ اردو ادب میں ایک سنگ میل کی حیثیت رکھتا ہے۔ اس ناول کو نہ صرف اردو زبان کے قارئین کی طرف سے بہت زیادہ پذیرائی ملی بلکہ اس کے انگریزی سمیت کئی زبانوں میں تراجم بھی شائع ہو چکے ہیں جنہیں بین الاقوامی سطح پر بہت پسند کیا گیا تھا۔’اداس نسلیں‘ کا خصوصی سلور جوبلی ایڈیشن ابھی دو سال قبل ہی شائع ہوا تھا۔ عبداللہ حسین نے ماضی میں اپنے متعدد انٹرویوز میں تذکرہ کیا تھا کہ انہوں نے اس ناول کے لیے بہت زیادہ تحقیق کی تھی۔ وہ اپنے اس ناول کو اردو ادب میں ایک اہم اضافہ قرار دیتے تھے۔ تاہم ان کا یہ بھی کہنا تھا کہ ان کی اپنی تخلیقات میں سے ان کا پسندیدہ ناول ’نادار لوگ‘ تھا۔ ماضی میں ڈی ڈبلیو سے ایک گفتگو کے دوران انہوں نے کہا تھا کہ ’اداس نسلیں‘ کو بہت زیادہ مقبولیت اور پذیرائی ملی ہے لیکن وہ سمجھتے ہیں کہ ’نادار لوگ‘ ان کا فیورٹ ناول ہے۔
[عبداللہ حسین کا ناول ’اداس نسلیں‘ اردو ادب میں ایک سنگ میل کی حیثیت رکھتا ہے]
عبداللہ حسین کا ناول ’اداس نسلیں‘ اردو ادب میں ایک سنگ میل کی حیثیت رکھتا ہے۔’اداس نسلیں‘ اور ’نادار لوگ‘ کے علاوہ عبداللہ حسین کی دیگر قابل ذکر تخلیقات میں ’باگھ‘، ’نشیب‘، ’فریب‘، ’قید‘ اور ’رات‘ بھی شامل ہیں۔ وہ ناول نگاری کو ایک انتہائی مشکل، صبر آزما اور پیچیدہ عمل قرار دیتے تھے۔2013ئ میں پاکستان کی اکادمی ادبیات کی ایک تقریب سے خطاب کرتے ہوئے انہوں نے کہا تھا، ”ناول لکھنا آسان کام نہیں بلکہ یہ فن تعمیر کے مماثل ہے، آپ ایک اینٹ پر دوسری اینٹ رکھتے ہیں اور یوں ایک دیوار بنتی ہے۔“اپنے اسی خطاب میں عبداللہ حسین نے یہ بھی کہا تھا کہ آج کل کے دور میں لوگ ناول نہیں لکھ سکتے کیونکہ وہ جلد باز ہو چکے ہیں۔ ان کے بقول ناول نگاری میں تاخیر اور مشکلات کے باوجود مستقل مزاج اور مستعد رہنا پڑتا ہے۔ تب عبداللہ حسین نے کہا تھا کہ ایک اچھا ناول لکھنے کے لیے کم ازکم چار پانچ برس کا عرصہ درکار ہوتا ہے۔

Abdul Hameed Adam: He was born on April 10, 1910.  Most of the researchers think that he was born in Talwandi Musa Khan in district Gujranwala. However, in one of his own articles published in the ghazal number of Fanoon from Lahore, he writes that: since my father was living in Lyallpur (now Faisalabad) in April 1910, my arrival took place there. He was so adept in writing poetry that he could complete a ghazal in a few minutes. The last three works were published following his death. His philosophy is of being patient and content in life and not make difficult for others by being greedy. The suffering and sorrows of the have-nots are expressed very efficiently and in a personal manner.

In the 50’s and 60’s, his ghazals were published in many prestigious Urdu periodicals including Nuqoosh, Funoon, Adab-e-Latif, Adabi Duniya and other contemporary periodicals.

The most remarkable work of Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem is ‘Khayyam-e-Nau’, which is a poetic translation of Umar Khayyam’s ruba’is. The collection has been published by Sanjh Publications, Temple Road, Lahore thanks to efforts by Prof. Dr. Farid A. Malik, son of Mrs Akhtar Nazeer and Mirza Nadeem. During his last days, doctor saheb had become financially unstable and was greatly helped by his sister Mrs Akhtar Nazeer and her husband the late Malik Nazeer Ahmad. Dr. Saleem breathed his last in 1981 in Lahore and was laid to rest there. Dr. Saleem wrote poetry in Urdu and Persian. Some of his works are in English as well.Dr. Saheb could not earn the fame and name he actually deserved. But now his works are being published and it may be hoped that he will be given pride of place among best of Urdu poets by (honest) critics.Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem’s works and picutures can also bee seen in saleemwahid.blogspot.com and khojkhabarnews.com.

Shafeeq-ur-Rahman: He was a humourist. Shafeeq-ur-Rahman established himself in the pre-independence era like his contemporaries, such as Ibrahim Jalees, K.L. Kapoor, Krishan Chandr, Shaukat Thanvi and Rasheed Ahmed Siddiqi. His first book ‘Kirnen’ (1942) was a collection of quasi-romantic and quasi-humorous short stories. His early stories did not show any signs of a great humorist. But in his second book, ‘Shagoofe’ (1943), romanticism gave way to humour and it was his later books, ‘Lehren’ (1944) and ‘Parwaz’ (1945), which established him as a pure humorist. ‘Himaqaten’ (1947) and ‘Mazeed Himaqaten’ (1948) earned him more accolades but the flow of his books shrank to a trickle of articles and then for almost 25 years he wrote nothing. Shafeeq-ur-Rahman died in Rawalpindi on March 19, 2000. His books include 1. Kirnen, 1942, 2. Shagoofay, 1943, 3. Lehren, 1944, 4. Parwaaz, 1945, 5. Madd-o-jazar, 1946, 6. Himaqaten, 1947, 7.

Born in Delhi, Haqqee acquired his BA from Aligarh Muslim University and Master in English literature from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi.

He tried his hand at other genres of poetry, such as Peheylian, Kehmukarnian, and Qitat-i-Tareekhi too. He was associated with the Urdu Dictionary Board for 17 years from 1958 to 1975, compiling a monumental 24-volume dictionary, which may be termed as his labour of love. Apart from Urdu Dictionary Board’s work, Haqqee Sahib compiled two dictionaries. The Oxford English-Urdu Dictionary, a phenomenal work that instantly became a ‘must’ for every scholar and student of Urdu, is a translation of the eighth & ninth editions of Concise Oxford English Dictionary. Farhang-e-Talaffuz is a pronunciation dictionary of Urdu.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Shaukat Thanvi: His family belonged to Thana Bhaun, a small town in Muzaffar Nagar district but he was born in Bindraban, Mathura district, UP, on February 2, 1904. Shaukat Thanvi was an essayist, columnist, novelist, short story writer, broadcaster, playwright, sketch-writer and poet but, in essence, he was a humorist and in almost all his writings an unmistakable streak of humour can always be traced. His article “Swadeshi Rail” established him as the foremost Urdu humourist. It is unfortunate that the writer of such a calibre had to write porn literature by the name of Wahi Wahanvi to meet both the ends. After partition, he migrated to Pakistan. In 1957, Shaukat Thanvi joined Jang, Karachi, and wrote a humour column called Vaghaira vaghaira. When Jang launched its Rawalpindi edition in 1959, Shaukat Sahib was posted there. He received Tamgha-i-Imtiaz in March 1963. He was ill and his health deteriorated there. He died on May 4, 1963 and was buried in Miani Sahib Graveyard.

  1. Thank you Muslim Saleem for your efforts to put my poetry onto your blog.
    Further for the convenience of those in India who can’t read in Urdu script i would like to type it in roman:
    बाबा मुजको डर लगता है~
    बाबा मेरी मिस कहती हैं
    कल से सब स्कूल क बचे
    घर में रहे गे
    घर में पढ़ें गे
    में ने सुना है
    एक बारे से
    काली मूंचो वाले अंकल
    बोम्ब लगा केर ऐएँ गे
    सब बचे मेर जाएं गे
    बाबा कीऊ मरें गे हमको
    हम से कोई भूल हुई किया
    ‘हम से कीऊ नाराज़ हैं अंकल
    बाबा उनको गुरिया डे दूँ
    या फिर मेरे रंगो वाली
    याद है न वोह नीली डिबिया
    मेरी पिछली सालगिर पैर
    मुझको आप ने ला केर दी थी
    और मेरी वो पियरी पोनी
    रेड कोलोर की तितली वाली
    वो भी डे दूँ
    ?
    फिर टू नहीं मरें गे मुज को
    याद है बाबा एक दफा जब
    मेरे हाथ पे चोट लगी थी
    बोहत ज़यादा दर्द हुआ था
    थोरा खून भी निकला था
    बोहत ज़यादा रोई थी में
    किया ये बोम्ब बार होता है ?
    बोहत ज़यादा चोट लगे गी ?
    दर्द भी शायद ज़यादा होगा !!
    बाबा !! मुज को दर लगता है !!

    (आतिफ जावेद आतिफ)

  3. I believe that maintainig a directory of the Urdu writers and poets is not an easy task. Muslim Saleem saheb is accumulating the names of writers and poets for this website which is a great effort. I presume that this is the first website regarding the Urdu literature showing the great ambition of Muslim Saleem Saheb.
    One day we all will get a place on this remarkable website.
    Regards
    Shamim Manzar

  4. My dear Shamim Manzar sb, ASAK
    It is great of you to think so. It is the grace of Allah that he chose me for this stupendous task and gave me strength to compile four directories (the process is still on)
    1. Urdu poets and writers of world
    2. Urdu poets and writers of India
    3. Urdu poets and writers of Madhya Pradesh
    4. Poets and writers of Kashmir (+Jammu) and Kashmiri origin.

    I have also launched a blog for my father Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem
    saleemwahid.blogspot.com

    You can find a number of great poems including Khudayan-e-Jamhoor, which he wrote in rebellion against General Ayyub Khan around 1961. After publication of this poem, the then government tightened noose around Dr Saleem Wahid Saleem so much so that the great writer had to resort to hunger strike in Lahore. The hunger strike continued for 13 days. When I was writing a commentary on your novel “Zawal se pehle”. I was amazed that the novel was set in the same period and its hero was also a Communist worker. I request you kindly to see this blog also. The literary world of Urdu had done a great injustice to Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem and almost forgot him. During the last three decades I was also facing hardships. But now I have good resources and insha Allah will soon publish his two collections.

    with best wishes

Allama Iqbal

Greatest poet of Urdu from Kashmir. Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal (November 9, 1877 Sialkot – April 21, 1938 Lahore) is the greatest Urdu poet and his Persian kalam is also of very high quality. He is commonly referred to as Allama Iqbal. His ancestors were Sapru Kashmiri Brahmins. Iqbal’s poetry is interspersed with religious fervour. With his forceful verses, coupled with vast knowledge of history, Iqbal tried his best to revive religious ethos among Muslims urging them to resort the past glory. He was highly qualified and had studied in England and Germany. Iqbal also delivered a series of famous lectures he delivered to this effect, which were published as The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam. In his professional life, Iqbal established a law practice, but concentrated primarily on writing scholarly works on politics, economics, history, philosophy and religion. He is best known for his poetic works, including Asrar-e-Khudi—which brought a knighthood— Rumuz-e-Bekhudi, Baal-e-Jibreel and the Bang-e-Dara, with its enduring patriotic song Tarana-e-Hind. He commands great respect both in Pakistan and India. In Afghanistan and Iran, where he is known as Iqbāl-e Lāhor, he is highly regarded for his Persian works. Iqbal’s poem Shikwa had generated a lot of heat among Muslims against him but he later wrote ‘Jawab-e-Shikwa’ and won back his popularity.

بال بال دنیا پر اس کا ہی اجارہ ہے
وقت خالی ہاتھوں سے ہم نے بهی گزارا ہے
کو بہ کو برستا ہے، یم بہ یم ابلتا ہے
خونِ آدمیت سے نقشِ لا سنوارا ہے
لے چلو چراغوں کو کر کے خون سے روشن
دشت کی سیاہی نے ہم کو بهی پکارا ہے
زادِ راہ کا ہم سے کیوں سوال کرتے ہو
رہزنوں کے نرغے میں جب ہمیں اتارا ہے
ہر نفس قفس میں ہوں، کیسے مان لوں نقوی
“اب کهلی فضائیں ہیں، آسماں ہمارا ہے”

اس کی کرنوں ہی سے ہم نے ہیں اُجالے شب و روز
جو تری یاد کے سائے میں گزارے ہم نے
ہیں وہی زیست کے انمول حوالے شب و روز
دشت سے خاک اٹھا لایا تھا اجداد کی میں
گھر میں رکھی تو ہوئے چاند کے ہالے شب و روز
دستِ خونی جو کبھی وقت اٹھائے تجھ پر
کام آ جائیں ترے، ایسے کما لے شب و روز

ان کی نظر میں آج بھی کچھ برہمی سی ہے
اے میر ِ کارواں کبھی صحرا سے یہ بھی پوچھ
کیوں اب تلک وہ ریگ ِ تپاں شبنمی سی ہے
اک دلفریب سا یہ پڑاؤ تو ہے مگر
خوشیاں ہیں چار دن کی سزا دائمی سی ہے
تجھ کو بھی شوق تھا کہ رہے عمر بھر یہ ساتھ
مجھ پر ہی دوش کیوں ہو خطا باہمی سی ہے
۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔
مجھ کو تیری چاہت زندہ رکھتی ہے
اور تجھے یہ حالت زندہ رکھتی ہے
ڈهو ڈھو کر ہر روز جسے تهک جاتا ہوں
اس ساماں کی سنگت زندہ رکھتی ہے
سورج نے تیزاب ہے چھڑکا شاخوں پر
گلشن کو کیا رنگت زندہ رکھتی ہے؟
چڑھتے سورج کی میں پوجا کرتا ہوں
یار یہی اک خصلت زندہ رکھتی ہے
اُس کے در پر کب کا جانا چھوڑ دیا
اُس کو میری نفرت زندہ رکھتی ہے
چوم کے ہاتھوں کی ریکهائیں سوتا ہوں
خوابوں کی یہ دولت زندہ رکھتی ہے
پل دو پل آنگن میں تیرے رہتا ہوں
ایک یہی تو فرصت زندہ رکھتی ہے

Abdul Mateen Niaz

Abdul Mateen Niazyad e basitHe was born in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh but lived at Bhopal since the age of eight and died in Bhopal in 2008: Was a prolific poet. He lived in celibacy and penury throughout his life. Even then he was a much-spirited person. He first met me at Allahabad in 1978 and after I shifted to Bhopal, I sometimes met him and enquired about his well-being. He published several collections of his poetry including Dasht-e-Ma’ani, Harf-o-Sada, Naghma-e-Sha’ur, Peetal ka Aasman and Azan-e-Sher. Niaz had started penning poetry around 1958. In my opinion Niaz deserved a major award, which eluded him because awards are not given on merit but recommendations. His best couplets include: 1. Na Mere paas hai maazi, na haal-o-mustaqbil….jo naqsh main ne banaya bigad gaya mujh se 2. Jo din tulu’u bhi hoga to is qayamt se……udasiyan mere mahaul mein saja de ga 3. Saja raha hai naye aasmaN wo mere liye…..idhar ye haal hai mera ke par-shikasta hoon

اک اک نگاہ خلد ہے اک اک نفس بہار
تم ہو تو کیا نہیں ہے شب ماہتاب میں

اے عشق شرم ! اے نگہ شوق انفعال
کتنے چمک رہے ہیں ستارے نقاب میں

ہو نگے وہ محو ء دید بس اتنے یقین پر

Ahad Prakash

Born on June 17, 1951 at Bareli town in Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh to Ahmadullah Khan. Writes ghazals, children’s literature. Books “Chun Chun Chun and Awaz ka Prakash” Awards: Bal Sahitya Samman, Kanpur and Kahkashan-e-Adab Bhopal.

AHAD PRAKASH A GREAT ALL-ROUND GENIUS OF URDU/HINDI: MUSLIM SALEEM

Ahad Prakash’s works are so immense and so diverse that it is impossible to sum up his life and deeds in just one article. Therefore, I ill write four different articles one by one namely:-

  1. Ahad Prakash a great writer of children’s poems and stories
  2. Ahad Prakash as a sensitive and expressive thinking poet
  3. Ahad Prakash as a analytical, logical critic & writer, and;
  4. Ahad Prakash as an attractive writer of  Urdu/Hindi geets.

AHAD PRAKASH A GREAT WRITER OF CHILDREN’S POEMS AND STORIES

This write up attempts to sum up Ahad Prakash’s contribution as a writer of children’s poems and stories. His work in this field is so vast, grasping and enchanting that Ahad Prakash can easily be regarded as “Ismail Meerathi” of present era. He has penned beautiful poems and snippet stories for children in very easy, flowing and impressive language for over 45 years. He has published several books for children and his works have been continuously been published in major newspapers and periodicals of Urdu and Hindi in India.

In Madhya Pradesh, Ahad Prakash can be regarded as the Supreme Commander of children’ army. There no poet and writer of Urdu and Hindi in Madhya Pradesh or for that matter in entire India, who can measure up to Ahad Prakash’s works. Hats off to him. With this, I am presenting some clippings showing his prowess in the field of children’s fiction. (Muslim Saleem – 8 February 2017)

He got his early education in Urdu, Persian and Arabic at home and then did matriculation from Shaharyar High School, Sehore near Bhopal. Later, he imbibed education at Normal School, Bhopal, were training for agriculture, horticulture, scouting etc was imparted. He had inherited quite a wealth from his father since he was the lone surviving inheritor but lost his wealth due to the company of sycophants. Though Basit was a teetotaler, he had a fad for hunting, kite flying, pigeon flying and photography. In his last days, he faced a lot of financial problems. However, his appointment as the editor of Bhopal Municipal Board’s monthly magazine “Nagrik” gave him the much-needed support. He continue to edit the magazine till his death. Basit Bhopali was a poet of ghazal primarily though he wrote other forms of poetry as well. He started penning poetry around 1923 at the young age of 16. This was a turbulent period when freedom struggle and communist movement on one hand and on the other hand repressive tactics of the Bhopal State were in full swing. But Basit neither involved himself in any of the movements nor tried to seek favours from the Nawabs and kept penning ghazals in his own style. Unlike his rival Sheri Bhopali, he did not visit other cities to attend Mushairas. Basit also did not send his works to be published in magazines. Even then, he was a poet of big stature and the Urdu litterateurs coming to Bhopal like Niaz Fatehpuri, Syed Ehtisham Hussain, Prof. Ale Ahmad Suroor were impressed by him. The collection of his poetry has been named as “Karwaan-e-Sukhan”. Best couplets:

Sari duniya aaina Basit……………Jaisi nigaahen, waise nazare
Abhi aadaab-e-nazar aap ko kam aate hain
Aaina haath se rakh deejiye ham aate hain
Basit Bhopali also wrote ‘rubaa’is” with aplomb. Here is a specimen:
Saadiq hai har eik zarre pe heere ki misaal
Talab ka paani hai ke chandi sayyal
Aaina-e-firdaus jise kehte hain
Ai dost haqeeqat mein wuhi hai Bhopal.

Fazl Tabish (general spelt as Fazal Tabish)

Fazl TabishApart from being Secretary of MP Urdu Akademy, Fazl Tabish was also a good poet and candid person.

Fazal Tabish, Urdu zubaan ka baaNkaa shaair thaa. This is often you get to hear about Fazal Sahab (1933-1995). I had heard a lot about him especially his personality and bohemian lifestyle.

In my school days I knew him through his son, who was our teacher. But I never met him. It was only after his death that I read some of his poetry and was instantly drawn towards it. Fazal’s poetry is different in the sense that all his ghazals and Nazms stand out amongst hundreds of contemporary poets of his generation.

muslim saleem with fazal tabish and hasan kamal at Bhopal 1982

muslim saleem with fazal tabish and hasan kamal at Bhopal 1982shakhsiyat hai ki sirf gaalii hai

jaane kis shakhs ne uchhaalii hai

shahar dr shahar haath ugte haiN

kuchh to hai jo har ek savaalii hai

jo bhii haath aaye TuuT kar chaaho

haar ke yah ravish nikaalii hai

meer kaa dil kahaaN se laaoge

Khuun kii buund to bachaa lii hai

jism meN bhii utar ke dekh liyaa

haath Khaalii thaa ab bhii khaalii hai

resha resha udheD kar dekho

roshnii kis jagah se kaalii hai

din ne chehraa kharoNch Daalaa thaa

jab to suuraj pe Khaak Daalii hai

A group of Qawwals rendered it at a function a few years back. They sung it differently and started with the last two couplets but had a magical affect on the audience. Of course, his sexually explicit couplets once floated across the Urdu world:

chaahte the aazmuudaa aurat ka visaal

khair jaisii bhii haath aaye, nibhaayaa chaahiye….(aazmuuda=experienced)

But it is Nazm where Fazal Tabish reveals his brilliance. Never in the history of Urdu poetry, a poet had treated the subject of sex like Fazal did. Amongst the voices of Nazm in the post-Progressive movement era, Shaharyar, Nida Fazli, Shamsur Rahman Faruqi, Ameeq Hanafi are counted but I surely consider Fazal amongst them. His nazm for another day.

His was a big name in the Urdu world of MadhyaPradesh even through he was neither a poet nor writer or critic. But even then he  put in valuable service for Urdu. Without any remuneration, Habeeb Ahmad had been bringing out Sunday Edition of daily Nadeem by the name ‘Adab Nama’ for the last about quarter century. Many special issues of ‘Adam Nama’ have won critical acclaims including those featuring on Sir Syed, Fazal Tabish, Maulana Inam-ur-Rehman Khan, She’ri Bhopali, Taj Bhopali etc. Adab Nama’s popularity can be gauged from the fact that an Indore girl student did her MA (Urdu) desertation on this subject. Habeeb Ahmad was born in Bhopal on July 1, 1949 and resided at Habiba Manzil, 74-Ashoka Colony, Nur Mahal Road, Bhopal.

Iftikhar Jaleel Shauq::

I (Muslim Saleem) met him for the first and last time in 1994 when Shauq was in Bhopal for many months. Though Shauq had migrated to Pakistan and settled in Karachi, his heart rested in Bhopal. His biggest achievement is ‘Majalla-e-Bhopal. It is comprehensive 250 page magazine, which he published from Karachi after his two-month sojourn at Bhopal during which he met almost all the luminaries of Bhopal and collected their pictures and material written by them or on them and then published it in the form a magazine, which he christened as Majalla-e-Bhopal. At the time of his visit in 1994, I was doing night shift with National Mail.

Muslim Saleem (left) with Iftikhar Jaleel Shaug. For some year I had been clean-shaved.

I was deeply impressed by his sincerity towards and attachment with Bhopal. Though I used to be tired during the day time due to nigh duty, I helped him by taking him on my scooter wherever he wanted to go for collecting material for the magazine and meeting people. I wrote following poem in his honour, which he carried on page 151 of Majalla-e-Bhopal. Nazr-e-Iftikhar Jaleel Shauq Karey Karachi ko Bhopal zaar Shauq apna Ho kyun na baais-e-sad Iftikhar Shauq apna Na kohsaar, na ye taal us se chhota hai Ye kaun kahta hai Bhopal us se (Karachi se) chhota hai Ba faiz-shauq isi anjuman mein rahta hai Watan sey door hai lekin watan mein rahta hai Majalla us ney jo Bhopal par nikala hai Har ahl-e-Ilm-o-adab ka wo ik hawalaa hai Kitabi shakl di berozgar ho kar bhi Na rok paai qadam us key tangi-e-zar bhi Khuda-e-paak sey Muslim Saleem ki hai dua Ho uska naam bhi roshan mere watan jaisa

Muslim Saleem (left) is reading out his short story at the flat of Dr Shafiqa Farhat in 1994. Iftikhar Jaleel Shauq his sitting beside him.

Unfortunately, I could not recite this poem before him. There was a farewell function for him in the night and due to my duty, I was unable to attend this function. Therefore, I gave this poem to Iqbal Masood, who recited this in the function on my behalf. The following morning Shauq departed from Bhopal but published the poem in the magazine. Shauq also carried a number of my ghazals and pictures in the magazine. Others who pictures have been published in Majalla-e-Bhopal include Akhtar Saeed Khan, Dr Mamnoon Hasan Khan, Sheri Bhopali, Iqbal Majeed, Javed Saba, Sikandar Hafiz Khan, Ghazanfar Ali Khan (editor of Aftab-e-Jadeed) with his brother and editor of Dawn Karachi Ahmad Ali Khan, Naib Qazi Ameer Ullah, Abdur Rauf Khan, Muzaffar Raees, Qamar Jamali, Shaukat Ramuzi, Maqsood Imrani, Fazal Tabish, singer Sumna Rai, singer Asma Mannan, Jamal Akhtar, Jalaluddin (Olympian), Qamar Ashfaq, Khalid Mehmood, Zafar Sehbai, Iqbal Masood, Dr Mohammad Noman Khan, Naseem Ansari, Habib Rehman Nadvi, Khalil Ullah Khan Advocate etc. (Posted by Muslim Saleem on May 21, 2010)

Iqbal Masood

Iqbal MasoodBorn: June 4, 1950. He is the son of Mohammad Shafi Khan. Struggled hard in life. Had a teaching stint on temporary basis in Saifia College, Bhopal in 1975. Thereafter, he joined Urdu journalism a sub-editor of Aftab-e-Jadid (Now defunct) from 1979 and rose in ranks to become its editor in 1993. After closure of Aftab, he joined Madhya Pradesh Urdu Akademi and became its joint secretary (had a brief stint as acting secretary as well). He is a poet as well as writer. Book; Aitbar-e-Harfa. Address- A-23/4, Rajat Apartments, BDA Colony, Koh-e-Fiza, Bhopal. Mobile No- 9827089881. (His photos with Muslim Saleem are available on this web site)Ties with Muslim Saleem: Iqbal Masood was the first person in Bhopal to have recognised the potential of Muslim Saleem as a poet and writer. He recommended my name to various functions, where I met with success. I also worked with him as sub-editor in Aftab-e-Jadid. While Iqbal Masood was a reporter, I looked after the front page. In 1983, I moved to Hindi journalism (Dainik Bhaskar) and then to English journalism (National Mail, Central Chronicle and now Hindustan Times) in 1986. For about 20 years, we did not meet despite living in the same city without any reason. He also seemed to have forgotten me so much so that when he helped in compiling a directory of Urdu poets and writers of Bhopal called Qalam Dasta, he forgot to get my name included in it though it had the names of 192 ‘litterateurs’. Then I rediscovered him in 2006, when my Aligarh friends Prof Abdul Kalam Qasmi and Fahat Ehsas came to Bhopal to attend a function at Bharat Bhavan. During his stint at Urdu Akademi, he also did not call me even once for reciting my poetry or short stories at the Akademi. But I don’t have a complaint, since I look towards Allah, Who is the giver of name and fame. By His grace, the person, whose name was not thought fit to be included in the directory of Bhopal litterateurs, has himself compiled a much larger directory which is accessible worldwide. Not only Iqbal Masood, but I have been overlooked and underestimated by my other collegues as well. But everyone should know that no one can ignore me now by the grace of Allah. And my name will also sparke in the world of Urdu literature like my illustrious grandfather Dr. Khalifa Abdul Hakeem and father Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem, the creator of ‘Khayyam-e-Nau’.

Dedication of a book to Muslim Saleem

kausar siddiqui with muslim saleemTies with Muslim Saleem: Kausar Siddiqui is one of towering figures of Urdu literature of Bhopal. When I was managing editor of daily Aftab-e-Jadid in 1982, I used to meet him regularly. At that I time I lived at 31, Shastri Nagar, Bhopal and he was staying at a government quarter in North TT Nagar. That was the time when Noori Nastaliq had not arrived on the scene.

A specimen of Kausar Siddiqui’s khushnaweesi

Since I had worked as a professional Khattat, I had worked out some sort of tying font of Urdu. But, when I discussed the matter with Mr Siddiqui, I found him one step ahead of me. The matter came to a close since the early version of Noori Nastaliq had hit the market soon. But the depth of Mr Kausar Siddiqui’s all-round knowledge was etched in my mind. After 1983, I left Urdu journalism and gradually drifted away from active field of Urdu literature as well though I kept writing ghazals and getting them published in magazines. Times changed and faces and personalities too. In the year 2000, I faced problems with the Persian kalam of my father the late Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem. Some words were missing from the manuscript or were illegible. I discussed the matter with Mr Idris Moonis of Fas Computronics. He said that he knew of a person, who is adapt at Persian and can do it. I went to the person living in Ginnori and got the manuscript corrected without recollecting that Kausar Siddiqui 4 bookshe is none other than the same Mr Kausar Siddiqui whom I knew since both his whereabouts and appearance had changed quite a lot. Recently, when I launched the website khojkhabarnews.com and started a directory of Urdu Poets and Writers of Madhya Pradesh, I went to Mr Kausar Siddqui and met him after a gap of over 25 years. When he mentioned that he is the brother of Qaisar-ul-Jaffri and father to Romi Jaffry, all the old memories were rekindled in my mind. He is indeed a great person and workaholic litterateur with untiring flair of writing both prose and poetry. Still, he is very down-to-earth and does not brag about his achievements. A number of pictures have been contributed by him. I thank and salute Mr Kausar Siddqui.

Kaif Bhopali, whose forefathers had migrated from Kashmir to Lucknow and then Bhopal, was extremely intelligent. In his earlier days, he had translated 13 chapters of the holy Quran in poetic form. Later, he moved to Mumbai and started writing film songs, specially in the films made by Kamal Amrohi. He was an instant hit at every mushayara he attended. Kaif Bhopali died at Bhopal in 1991. Best couplets:

  1. Teraa chehra kitna suhaana lagtaa hai….tere aage chand purana lagta hai
  2. Kamsini key aalam mein jin ko chhod aaya thaa

Ab to un darakhton ke phal bhi pak gaye hongey

  1. Kaun aaye ga yahaan, koi na aaya hogaa

Mera darwazaa hawaon ney hilayaa hoga

Kailash Sarang:

Janab Kailash Sarang Saheb is not the name of an individual, but an institution. He is a multilingual giant figure as well apart from being a leader of Bharatiya Janata Party. When the history of Urdu literary world of MadhyaPradesh will be written, the name of Kailash Sarang will be written in golden letters. He is not a poet or writer of Urdu, but this beleaguered language, especially in Bhopal and large parts of MadhyaPradesh, is indebted to him a lot. He can read and write Urdu and has been a regular reader of some good Urdu magazines. At a time when Urdu and Urduwriters were going through the worst patch, it was Kailash Sarang who infused a new life in it. He brought out an Urdu weekly “Ayaz” from Bhopal for his party. The weekly ran successfully for 18 years until BJP decided to close it down. It not only gave employment to Urdu people, but also highlighted the problems of Urdu and Muslims. In 1982, the ten-year celebrations of “Ayaz” were held. A grand Mushaira was organised at Khirni Wala Maidan (Now Iqbal Maidan). It was one of the grandest Mushairas in the history of Bhopal. (I also recited my ghazals along with Atal Behari Bajpai, Qateel Shifai and other famous poets at this Mushaira). On this occasion, an Ayaz Diary was also published on each page of which was a couplet of Urdupoets. Importantly, publication of Ayaz and organisation of these celebrations were funded by sympathisers of RSS and BJP, just because of Kailash Sarang. Limitations of this directory do not allow me more space but I will write a very comprehensive article focusing on him on the same website under a separate head) Residence: Sheesh Mahal, near Moti Masjid, Bhopal phone No. 0755-2543551

Mehdi Jafar:

Mehdi JafarBorn at Allahabad, UP, he lived in Bhopal for 17 years and retired as the incharge of Canning Section of Food and Nutrition Department. He is basically a critic of Urdu prose but has also published “Keemiya-e-Samri, a collection of his poetry. After retirement, he settled in Allahabad. Address: 1284-A, Daryabad, Allahabad-21003. Phone: 0532-2451493.

Comments by Muslim Saleem

Mehdi Jafar is a name to reckon with in the world of Urdu literary criticism. In fact, he is a literary giant of Urdu, who has not hogged due highlight since he himself underplays him out of humility. He is an extremely good poet and writer. I have the honour of interacting with him at both Allahabad and Bhopal, where Mehdi Jafar did a long stint at a top government assignment. He lived in the same Shastri Nagar colony in Bhopal where I once lived. His memory is still so sharp that when I called him over Mehdi Jafar shahid mahulimobile from Bhopal after about 25 years, he vividly remembered that I lived at a house near the post office of Shastri Nagar. Address: Mahdi Jafar, 729 Pathan Valli, Daryabad, Allahabad-211003. MoB; +91 9452495669Our first meeting was when both of us were felicitated at a function at Allahabad in 1981. Later, I used to meet him frequently and got enlightened by his vast knowledge. Our interaction came down due to my moving away from Shastri Nagar and then his retirement and settling in Allahabad. His memories were rekindled in my mind when I received collection of his poetry “Keemiya-e-Samri” and went through it. The contents of Keemiya-e-Samri – ghazals, azad ghazal and poems – are indeed additions to Urdu poetry. He has his own brand and style. His observation and thought are deep. The Mehdi Jafar I know never does anything in ordinary way.  (Muslim Saleem, December 25, 2010)
