Baras Raha Hai Jo Ishq-e-Haqiqi Hai Ye

Rain has often played a romancing factor in Urdu sher-o-shayari to entwine emptiness and contentment together. Barish or barsaat can be both, love quenching as well as death dealing, subtly links all aspects of life.

Kirdaar Husain’s small effort, emblematizing a multitude of emotions.

Baras raha hai jo ishq-e-haqiqi hai ye,
Paani ki surat me jannat ki sharab hai ye,

Barasti hai garajti hai machalti hai mehekti hai ye,
Yaad mere yaar ki dilaati hai ye..

Naazil kiya hai khuda ne inko mere liye,
Baarish ki buunde nahi; jaise meri mehbooba hai ye..

Geeli inn barsaato me aankh chalakti hai,
Kehti hai hawa saboot-e-wafa hai ye..

Milti hai mitthi me toh apni khusbu chod jaati hai,
Juda hai mujhse meri mohabbat hu-bahu uska ehsaas hai ye..

Dhaalna chahti hai mujhko ye barsaat apne ‘kirdaar’ me,
Janti nahi ki chand minto ki baat hai phir toh aakaal hai ye..
