A Marsiya of Mīr Anīs for Hazrat Ali Akbar, the teenage son of Imām Husain

Manind-e-sher jung mein thi chaar su nigaah

Chhup chhup ke badliyo’n se nikalte thay misl-e-maah

Lekin ajal se bas nahi chalta kisi ka aah

Dekha jo phir ke youn nazar aayi adam ki raah

Chhaati pe lag ke pusht se naiza guzar gayaa

Ubla lahu to umr ka paimana bhar gaya

Naiza laga ke zor se khaincha laee’n ne jab

Tukde kai jigar ke nikal aaye hai ghazab

Harne pe sar jhuka ke jo sambhlaa wo tashnalab

Tar ho gayi lahu se qabaa Mustafa ki sab

Ghash aaya, nabzein chhut gayi’n, tevar badal gaye

Halqe rakaab ke bhi qadam se nikal gaye

Faryaad hai ke toot pada lashkar-e-giraa’n

Harbe tamaam fauj ke aur aik naujawaa’n

Girte hue faras se pukaraa wo neem jaa’n

Leeje khabar ghulam ki ai Qibla-e-Zamaa’n

Jaldi uthaiye mujhay dasht-e-nabard se

Ab jaan nikli jaati hai chhati ke dard se

Sun’na tha ye ke Sheh pe gira aasmaan-e-ghum

Itna kaha ke “aah, hue ab tamaam hum”

Daude, gire, utthe, kai ja Qibla-e-Umam

Rakhkha kisi jaga to kisi ja pada qadam

Khaliq pisar ka daagh dikhaaye na baap ko

Aankho’n se kuchh dikhaai na deta tha aap ko

Chillaate the kidher ko hai tu ai jawaa’n pisar

Aashiq pisar, shafeeq pisar, meherbaa’n pisar

Mere saeed lal, mere qadrdaa’n pisar

Hoto’n pe dum hai baap ka, ai neem jaa’n pisar

Beta nibaah baap ka ab tere haath hai

Jaldi na keejiyo ke ye bekas bhi saath hai

Kis jaa sitam ki seene pe kha kar sinaa’n gire

Aawaaz phir do, ai Ali Akbar kahaa’n gire

Kis tarh ladkhadaa ke na ye naatawaa’n gire

Peeri mein jis pe koh-e-ghum-e-naujawaa’n gire

Aada se is sitam ka Khuda inteqaam le

Itna nahi koi mere haatho’n ko thaam le

Jangal mein pohche laash pe us waqt Shaah-e-Dee’n

Jab aidiyaa’n ragad rahe the Akbar-e-Hasee’n

Chillaaye paas gir ke Shah-e-Bekas o Hazee’n

Haazir hai baap ai mere farzand-e-mehjabee’n

Baba ko mutmain to karo mu se bol ke

Baahein gale mein daal do aankhon ko khol ke

Tum neb bhi mu ko baap se moda, hazaar haif

Bekas ko is zaeef ko chhoda, hazaar haif

Pehna na bar mein byaah ka joda, hazaar haif

Qismat ne taaze phool ko toda, hazaar haif

Bheegi hui maso’n pe ajab aab o taab thi

Hai hai abhi to aamad-e-fasl-e-shabaab thi

Kyon tharthara ke karwatein lete ho baar baar

Kya hai ke khaak par kisi pehlu nahi qaraar

Hazrat se dum nikalne mein bola wo Gul Azaar

Barchhi ka zakhm hai meri chhati ke waar paar

Kya haal-e-dil kahu’n, nahi taqat bayaan ki

Lo Alwida’a, jism se rukhsat hai jaan ki

Nagaah rang zard hua, haath thartharaaye

Karwat kabhi karaah ke li, gaah muskuraaye

Atka jo dum, sawaal mein paani ke lab hilaaye

Haste hue guzar gaye duniya se haai haai

Phaila ke haath paav wo maqtool reh gaya

Khushbu sue behisht gayi phool reh gaya

Bas ai Anees bas na sune the kabhi ye bain

Barpa hai bazm-e-matam-e-Akbar mein shor o shain

Mai aik kya, nahi kisi momin ke dil ko chain

Keeje madad, in apne ghulaamo’n ki YA HUSSAIN

Asrat ho dur, aish ka samaan kam na ho

Juz maatam-e-Huzoor koi aur ghum na ho
