From A Shaheed To His Mother

July 23, 2009

میں اکثر ماں سے کہتا تھا
ماں !
دعا کرنا
کہ کبھی تیرا یہ بیٹا
خاکی وردی پہنے
سینے پہ تمغے سجاءے
مجاہدوں کا سا نور لیے
تیرے سامنے فخر سے کھڑا ہو،
اور میری ماں
میری ماں یہ سن کر
ہنس دیا کرتی تھی ـ ـ ـ
کبھی جو تمہیں میری ماں ملے تو اْس سے کہنا
وہ اب بھی ہنستی رہا کرے،
کہ شہیدوں کی مائیں
رویا نہیں کرتیں۔ ۔ ۔ ۔

میں اکثر ماں سے کہتا تھا
اْس دن کا انتظار کرنا،
جب دھرتی تیرے بیٹے کو پکارے گی،
اور ان عظیم پربتوں کے درمیان بہتے
اْشو کے دریا کا نیلا پانی،
اور سوات کی گلیوں میں بارش کے قطروں کی طرح گرتی
روشنی کی کرنیں پکاریں گی۔ ۔ ۔
اور پھر اس دن کے بعد،
میرا انتظار نہ کرنا،
کہ خاکی وردی میں جانے والے اکثر،
سبز ہلالی میں لوٹ کر آتے ہیں۔ ۔ ۔

مگر میری ماں۔ ۔ ۔
آج بھی میرا انتظار کرتی ہے،
گھر کی چوکھٹ پہ بیٹھی لمحے گنتی رہتی ہے،
میرے لیے کھانا ڈھک رکھتی ہے۔ ۔ ۔

کبھی جو تمہیں میری ماں ملے
تو اْس سے کہنا،
وہ گھر کی چوکھٹ پہ بیٹھ کر
میرا انتظار نہ کیا کرے۔ ۔ ۔ ۔
خاکی وردی میں جانے والے
لوٹ کر کب آتے ہیں؟

میں اکثر ماں سے کہتا تھا
یاد رکھنا !
اس دھرتی کے سینے پہ
میری بہنوں کے آنسو گرے تھے،
مجھے وہ آنسو انہیں لوٹانے ھیں۔ ۔ ۔
میرے ساتھیوں کے سر کاٹے گئے تھے
اور ان کا لہو پاک مٹی کو سرخ کر گیا تھا۔۔
مجھے مٹی میں ملنے والے
اْس لہو کا قرض اتارنا ہے۔ ۔ ۔

اور میری ماں یہ سن کر
نم آنکھوں سے
مسکرا دیا کرتی تھی۔ ۔ ۔

کبھی جو تمہیں میری ماں ملے
تو اْس سے کہنا
اس کے بیٹے نے لہو کا قرض چکا دیا تھا
اور
دھرتی کی بیٹیوں کے آنسو چن لیے تھے۔ ۔ ۔

میں اکثر ماں سے کہتا تھا
میرا وعدہ مت بھلانا،
کہ جنگ کے اس میدان میں
انسانیت کے دشمن درندوں کے مقابل
یہ بہادر بیٹا پیٹھ نہیں دکھائے گا
اور ساری گولیاں
سینے پہ کھائے گا

اور میری ماں
یہ سن کر
تڑپ جایا کرتی تھی

کبھی جو تمہیں میری ماں ملے
تو اْس سے کہنا،
اس کا بیٹا بزدل نہیں تھا،
اس نے پیٹھ نہیں دکھائی تھی،
اور ساری گولیاں سینے پہ کھائیں تھی۔ ۔۔ ۔

میں اکثر ماں سے کہتا تھا،
تم فوجیوں سے محبت کیوں کرتی ہو؟

ہم فوجیوں سے محبت نہ کیا کرو، ماں!
ہمارے جنازے ہمیشہ جوان اْٹھتے ہیں۔ ۔ ۔

اور میری ماںـ ـ ـ

میری ماں یہ سن کر
رو دیا کرتی تھی ـ ـ ـ

کبھی جو تمہیں میری ماں ملے
تو اْس سے کہنا،
وہ فوجیوں سے محبت نہ کیا کرے۔ ۔ ۔
اور
دروازے کی چوکھٹ پہ بیٹھ کر
میرا انتظار نہ کیا کرے

سنو۔ ۔ ۔!

تم میری ماں سے کہنا

وہ رویا نہ کرے ۔ ۔ ۔

  30. Kat jaun jo maqtal may to uff tak nahi kahna…
    Gham meri judai ka aey ma sabr se sehna….

    May shoq e shahadat ka liya dil mey jia hu…
    Is jaam ko peenay ki tamanna may jia hu…
    Peeta hu bhala kaisay zara dekhti rehna…
    Gham meri judai ka zara sabr se sehna..

    Gar katey meri naak , ye ankhayn bhi nikalayn..
    Aur kaat ke meray kaan ye haar buna layn…Hamza (R.A) ki shahadat ki taraf dekhti rehna…

    Gar Qatl Jawani mey mera tujh ko sataey…
    Be kafn mera dafn tujhay yaad jo aey….
    Musab (Raziallahu anh) ki shahadat ki taraf dekhti rehna…
    gham meri judai ka aey ma sabar se sehna…

    Meray Baad kalashin meri girnay nahi deyna … Hindu ko lamha aik bhi dam laynay na dena…
    Kut jau jo maqtal mey to uf tak nahi kehna..

  40. Awesome awesome poem…
    thats one reason we can say,

    PROUD TO BE A PAKISTANI!!!!

    PAK ARMY ZINDABAD
    PAKISTAN PAINDABAD


  41. You made my cry to read that, Oh sons of Islam/Pakistan you are performing your duties the upmost. You sacrifice yourself in the way of Allah to protect your brothers, sisters, daughters and sons of Pakistan. You give a beam light of bright tomorrow to the children of Pakistan. Pak Army, may Allah Protect you from all evils, Pak Army Zina Bad, Pakistan Zinda Bad.


  42. The sad part is , the current operations involve Muslims on both sides.
    The enemy has to be distinguished clearly , isolated and decimated. Shahadat is not attained when a Muslim eliminates another Muslim.
    Time for introspection?


    • You mean the uncircumcized ‘muslims’ that the Pakistan Army has been fighting in Swat? Or their murderous colleagues who have no hesitation in bombing mosques and kidnapping young girls to marry them?


    • Excalibur…..please….. Those barbarians should not even be considered Muslims…..


    • Time to read the ahadith about these times and conditions and reflect upon their meaning. The only true physical Jihad for any Pakistani is through joining the Pakistan Army.


      • Dan Qayyum
        Unless the other side is fighting naked, I am not sure your assumption is correct. There is a significant majority of our misguided brothers who have not only harboured such elements in the past but still continue to provide safe havens to them.
        I have no symapathy for any non muslim insurgents fomenting trouble. But then the nation should have supported Musharraf unconditionally when he declared Emergency for dealing with the same problem/issue and had also initiated army action in Swat. But what did we do other than to to hound him out of office ?
        ( especially the lapdog media of vested interests )


    • @Excalibur:

      Bro, you are at mistake there. So called taliban in Swat are indeed dubious — although innocenent emotional Muslims trapped by TTP died or many may have been caught in fire fight between Pak army and these munafiqeen ruining the name of Taliban.

      Just another thing to expose them is code of conduct by Taliban of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan:

      http://english.islamweb.net/ver2/engblue/article.php?lang=E&id=153440

      The above act clearly distinguishes mujahideen b/w munafiqeen.

      It is time we suppose our army and pray for this fitna to come to an end soon.


      • Dear Hell Borne

        This is exactly my concern, When Musharraf tried to first reason with the militants inside the Lal Masjid and when patience ran out the Army was deployed to cleanup. All Hell broke loose then and`Musharraf and the Army were mercilessly criticised,
        The same thing happened when Musharraf first hauled up Sufi Muhammad and directed the Army to eliminate the infiltration in Swat.
        Now the situation is exactly identical but at a much larger scale and all of us are supporting the Army unconditionally

        What was Musharraf’s crime then ? All those who now talk about Khilafat and justice and Army are nothing but shameless hypocrites. They owe an apology to Musharraf.


  43. extremely powerful words! my heart goes out to all those mothers who have lost their brave sons, and to those who live with the fear of losing them….
    salam ha en azeem maaoon ko!


  44. bloody brilliant..!!
