Suna hai log usay aankh bhar kay daikhtay hain,
So us kay sheher main kuch din theher kay daikhtay hain,

Suna hai rabt hai usko kharab haaloun say,
so apnay aap ko barbaad kar kay daikhtay hain,

Suna hai dard ki gahak hai chashm-e-naaz uski,
so ham bhi us ki gali say guzar kay daikhtay hain,

suna hai us ko bhi hai sher o shayari say shaghaf,
so ham bhi mojzay apnay hunar kar dekhtay hain,

suna hai bolay to batoun say phool jhartay hain,
yeh bat hai t chalo bat kar kay daikhtay hain,

Suna hai rat usay chand takta rehta hai,
sitaray baam e falat se utar kay daikhtay hain,

suna hai din ko usay titliyan stati hain,
suna hai rat ko jugno theher kay daikhtay hain,

suna hai hashr hain us ki ghazaal si ankhain,
suna hai us ko hiran dhasht bhar kay daikhtay hain,

suna hai us ki syah chashmagi qayamat hai,
so usko surmah faroosh aah bhar kay dekhtay hain,

Suna hai us kay laboun say ghulab jaltay hain,
so ham bahar pay ilzam dhar kay daikhtay hain,

suna hai aaina tamsaal hai jabeen us ki,
jo saada dil hain usay ban sanwar kay daikhtay hain,

suna hai us k badan ki tareash aisi hai,
k phool apni kabayen katar kay daikhtay hain,

bas ik nigaah main lut’ta hai qaafila dil ka,
so rah rawan e tamanna bhi dar k daikhtay hain,

suna hai us kay shabistaan say mutasssil hai bakhisht,
makeen udhar kay bhi jalway idhar kay dekhtay hain,

kisay naseeb kay be pairhan usay daikhay,
kabhi kabhi dar-o-deewar ghar kay dekhty hain,

rukay to ghardishain uska taqaaf karti hain,
chalay to usko zamanay theher k daikhtay hain,

kahaniyan hi sahi, sab mubalghay hi sahi,
agar yeh khwab hai tabeer hai tabeer kar kay daikhtay hain

ab us kay sheher main thehrain kay kooch kar jayen,
Faraz aao sitaray safar kay daikhtay hain,

A couple of amazing pieces of Urdu Sad Poetry are in our post today. We use designed poetry to give our readers a unique and more beautiful look to the poetry. First piece of Urdu Sad Poetry is a Ghazal. In this ghazal the poet talks about the loneliness and the pitilessness of the one he thinks about.

Main jo mehka to meri shakh jala di us nay,
sabz mosam main mujhay zard hawa di us nay,

pehly ik lamhy ki zanjeer main bandha mujh ko,
or phir waqt ki raftar barha di us nay,

janta tha k mujhay mot sakoo’n bakhshay gi,
woh sitamgar tha so jeenay ki dua di us nay,

Us kay honay say thin sansain meri dugni shayad,
Woh jo bichra to meri umr ghata di us nay,

Translation of last 2 shairs of Urdu Sad Poetry above:

Knew that death would calm me,
he/she was inexorable, prayed for my life,

being with him/her my life was doubled, perhaps,
when he/she left, decreased was my lifetime,

Woh dil nawaz ha lekin nazar shanas nahi,
Mera ilaaj meray charahgar kay paas nahi,

Tarap rahay hain zabaan per kai sawal magar,
Meray liay koi shayaan-e-iltamaas nahi,

tere ujalon main bhi dil kanp kanp uthta hai
mere mizaj ko aasudagi bhi ras nahi

kabhi kabhi jo tere qurb main guzre the
ab un dinon ka tasawwur bhi mere pas nahi

guzar rahe hain ajab marhalon se dida-o-dil
sahar ki as to hai zindagi ki aas nahi

mujhay ye dar hai k teri arzu na mit jaye
bahut dinon se tabiyat meri udaas nahi,

Please stop, let my condition get better, then go,

My heart is anxious, let it calm, then go,

Here is the original Urdu Poetry version.

Zara thehro meri halat sambhal jaye to phir jana,
Dil e be taab thora sa behel jaye ti phir jana,

abhi to furqatoun se beher se nikla nahi hun main,
tumharay wasl ka jaadu yeh chal jaye to phir jana,

bura na gar lagy to samny bethy raho youn hi,
tera chehra bisarat main jo dhal jaye to phir jana,

Kai sadiyoun raha hun qarb kay is zard mosam main,
Suno ye dard ka mosam badal jaye to phir jana,

jami hain dharkanain to munjamid hain sari sansain bhi,
Badan ki zindagi thori machal jaye to phir jana.

Abhi mat jao keh jakra hua ha dard nay mujh ko,
Tumhary dard ka loha pighal jaye to phir jana,

meray dil main abhi jenay ki phir khuwahish si jaagi ha,
Yeh nanhi si tamanna phool phal jaye to phir jana,

Many up-coming generations will take great pleasure in reading and understanding the it.

Urdu Nazms and Urdu Ashaar are popular types of Urdu Poetry which are going to be shared today.

Urdu Poetry | Urdu Nazm

Usually many kinds of Urdu Poems are known as Urdu Nazms. Urdu Nazm is such a type of Urdu Poetry which does not require to have rhyming words in the end of each couplet the length of the couplets, these are characteristics of Urdu Ghazals.

The theme of today’s Urdu Nazm is “I miss you“, The Poet very emotionally reminding all the letters, long emails, chatting, exchange of gifts that have been done between them and all the promises.On the Peak point of this Urdu Nazm the poet says “chalo dil pe chataan rah kar gulistaan e muhabbat ko, khud barbaad karty hain”…

Agar tark e ta’aluk hi wafaoun ka taqaza ha,
khushi say bhool jao tum,
wo shab dhalay ki khamoshi main meray nam likhay khat,
Taveel e-mails, wo shairoun say, phooloun say laday sab card,
meray mobile per wo jagmagaty pyar k qissay,
wo khushbu bat ki yadain, wo mehki rat ki batain,
Adhooray sab fasanay or adhoori sab mulaqatain,
tumhain meri ijazat ha,
bhula do saray qadoun ko, bhula do sari yadoun ko,
Jala do meri sab nazmain,
lota do pyar k tohfay,
Qalam jis per tumhara nam chaandi se likhaya tha,
wo tie jo galay ka haar ban k rehti thi aksar,
Kitabain…. Jo tumhari khwab gah ki ab bhi zeenat hain,
wo Cd jo tumhari gari main ab bhi amanat ha,
Romaloun per tumhara nam ham ne khud hi garha tha,
agar tark e ta’aluk hi wafaoun ka taqaza ha,
suno phir aaj hi is be mehr sa’at k saye main,
har ik shart e wafa se ham tumhain aazad karty hain,
K khud hi Qatl hoty hain, khud bedaad karty hain,
chalo dil pe chataan rakh kar,
gulistaan e muhabbat ko,
khud barbaad karty hain,
tumhara nam tak lety nahi tanhaiyoun main ham,
magar is dil ki dharkan ko bana kar raz dan apna,
tumhain ham yad karty hain,

Sad Urdu Ghazal | Ahmed Faraz

Sad Urdu Ghazal by Ahmed Faraz:

A beautiful Sad Urdu Ghazal which is taken from the Sad Urdu Poetry collection of Ahmed Faraz. Ahmed Faraz has many popular and hit sad urdu ghazals.

Terey qareeb aa k badi uljhanoun mein hoon
Main dushmanoun mein hoon kay teray dostoun mein hoon

Mujh say guraiz pa hai tou her rasta badal
Main sang-e-raah tou sabhi raston main hoon

Tu aa chuka hai satah pey kab say khabar nahi
Bay dard main abhi in hi gehraiyoun mein hoon

Aey yar-e-khush diyar tujhay kya khabar kay main
Kab say udasiyoun k ghanay jungaloun main hoon

Tu loot kar bhi ahl-e-tamanna ko khush nahi
Main lut kay bhi wafa k unhain qatiloun main hoon

Badla na merey baad bhi moazo-e-guftagoo
Main ja chuka hoon phir bhi teri mehfiloun main hoon

Mujh say bichad k tu bhi to roye ga ummar bhar
Yeh soch lay k main bhi teri khuahishoun maen hoon

Tu hans raha hay mujh pay mera haal daikh kar
Aur phir bhi main shareek tere qehqahoun main hoon

Khud hi misaal-e-laala-e-sehra lahoo lahoo
Aur khud hi ‘Faraz’ apnay tamashaioun main hoon

Sufi Poetry | Qalandar

Sufi Poetry

Halaat kay Qadmoun main Qalandar nahi girta,

Tootay bhi Sitara to zameen per nahi girta,

Girtay hain samandae main baray shouq say darya,

Lekin kabhi daryamain samandar nahi girta,

Qalandar, Sufi Poetry

Sufi Poetry | English translation

In these lines the poet wants to explain that a saint Loves God very much and does not fall in the trap of the devil or any critical situation. The Qalandar (saint) is like a star the destiny of the Qalandar is to stay high in the sky of belief and shine and it does not lost its shine and power of belief even if it is trapped.
The literal meaning of the second two verses is ” All the rivers fall in the sea but the sea never falls in the river.”
Meaning there by that the Saint only loves Allah very much and stay in the deep meditations, he does not have any interest in the Dunya (World, benefits of the world which ends with the depart of the soul from the body). Rivers come to sea to complete themselves, not the sea goes to the rivers to complete itself.
