Selected DOHAS of Mirza Asad Ullah Khan Ghalib

Posted on: November 30, 2017


1-har ek baat pe kahate ho tum ki tuu kyaa hai

tumhii.n kaho ke ye a.ndaaz-e-guftaguu kyaa hai

Everything that I say; you disapprove of my being

Tell me is this thy approach to disrespect my being


2-jaan tum par nisaar karataa huu.N

mai.n nahii.n jaanataa duaa kyaa hai

I surrender my whole subsistence to you
I’m unaware of pray; I only know you—


3. mai.n ne maanaa ki kuchh nahii.n ‘Ghalib’

muft haath aaye to buraa kyaa hai ?

I’m know very well, that I’m nothing Ghalib

So what’s the problem if you easily get me?


4. Ghalib sharab peene do Masjid mein baith kar

Ya woh jagah batao jaha khuda nahi.

Ghalib let me rejoice wine in the mosque

Or, show the place where there’s no God


5. Phir dekhiyen andaz-e-gul afshaani-e-guftar;

rakh de koyi paimaan-e-saiba mere aage

Lets again enjoy her blossoming conversation

Someone put a wine chalice for my mediation


6. “Ragon mein daudte phirne ke hum nahi qaael,

Jab aankh hi se na tapka to phir lahoo kya hai ”

I don’t believe blood flowing in veins is of any worth

Unless eyes shed woe as blood tears! It’s worth
