shakeel-badayuniHere is a beautiful ghazal penned by Urdu poet and lyricist Shakeel Badayuni, who celebrates his birth centenary this year –

Aye mohabbat tere anjaam pe rona aaya,
Jaane kyun aaj tere naam pe rona aaya

Oh love, your consequences brought me to tears today
I wonder why, the mention of your name brought me to tears today

Yun to har shaam ummeedon mein guzar jaati hai,
Aaj kuch baat hai, jo shaam pe rona aaya

Most evenings were spent living in hope
Something is different today, the evening brought me to tears today

Kabhi taqdir ka maatam, kabhi duniya ka gila,
Manzil-e-ishq mein har gaam pe rona aaya

Sometimes mourning over fate, sometimes complaining about the world
In the journey to the destination of love, every step brought me to tears

Jab hua zikr zamaane mein mohabbat ka ‘Shakil’,
Mujhko apne dil-e-nakaam pe rona aaya

At the mere mention of love in this world, Shakeel (name of poet)
The unsuccessful attempts of my heart brought me to tears today

Here is the ghazal sung as by Begum Akhtar
