Shakeel Badayuni (August 3, 1916 – April 20, 1970) was an accomplished Urdu poet and lyricist in Hindi film industry.

When Shakeel moved to Bombay from in 1944 to write songs for films. He met film producer, A.R. Kardar and music composer, Naushad who asked him to sum up his poetic skills in one line. Shakeel wrote, ‘Hum dard Ka Afsana Duniya Ko Suna Denge, Har Dil Main Mohabbat Ki Ek aag Laga Daingay.’ Naushad immediately signed him for Kardar’s film, Dard (1947). The songs of Dard proved to be very successful especially Tun Tun’s Afsana Likh Rahi Hoon.

Together, he and Naushad became one of the most sought after lyricist/ composer duos in the industry.

Their stupendous oeuvre consisted of films like Baiju Bawra (1952), Mother India (1957) and Mughal-e-Azam (1960), that stand out.
Shakeel also wrote lyrics of films like Chaudhvin ka Chand(1960) which won him the Filmfare Award in 1961and Sahib Bibi Aur Gulham (1962).

Below are the lyrics of the song Chaudvin Ka chand from the film with the same name directed by Mohmmed Sadiq and a Guru Dutt Production.

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Jo Bhi Ho Tum Khuda Ki Kasam, Lajawab Ho
What ever you may be I swear you are beyond compare

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Zulfein Hain Jaise Kaandhe Pe Baadal Jhuke Hue (2)
Your hairs are like the cloud which is bending on your shoulder

Aankhen Hain Jaise Maey Ke Pyaale Bhare Hue
Your eyes are like the glass which is filled with wine, wine of love

Masti Hai Jisme Pyaar Ki Tum, Woh Sharaab Ho
You are like the wine which got the abundance of love

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Jo Bhi Ho Tum Khuda Ki Kasam, Lajawab Ho
What ever you may be I swear you are beyond compare

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Chehra Hai Jaise Jheel Mein Hasta Hua Kanwal (2)
Your face is like a lotus , a smiling lotus in a brook

Ya Zindagi Ke Saaz Pe Chhedi Hui Ghazal
Or your face is like the song, sonnet tuned by the music of life

Jaane Bahaar Tum Kisi Shaayar Ka Khwaab Ho
My love you are like the dream of any poet, dream girl

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Jo Bhi Ho Tum Khuda Ki Kasam, Lajawab Ho
What ever you may be I swear you are beyond compare

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Hothon Pe Khelti Hain Tabassum Ki Bijliyaan (2)
Sparkling smile plays on your lips

Sajde Tumhari Raah Mein Karti Hain Kaikashaan
On your walking path whole universe bows

Duniya-E-Husno-Ishq Ka Tum Hi Shabaab Ho
You are the essence of love beauty in this world

Chaudvin Ka Chand Ho, Ya Aaftaab Ho
Are you full moon of the night or are you the shining sun of the afternoon

Jo Bhi Ho Tum Khuda Ki Kasam, Lajawab Ho
What ever you may be I swear you are beyond compare
