Mohabbaton ka Shayar Qateel Shifai : Listen his poetry in his own voice

Qateel shifaee ki shayari se mera parichay jagajit sinh ji ki vajah huaa. jagajit ji apane alag alag elabamon mein unaki kaee ghazalen gaee hain jisamein jyadatar ghazalen ishk mohabbat ke ahasason se bharapoor hai. daraasal prem Qateelki adhikansh ghazalon aur najmon ka mukhy vishay raha hai isaliye unhen 'mohabbaton ka shayar' bhi kaha jata hai. bad mein vibhinn shayari manchon mein Qateelki kaee aur ghazalen aur najmein padane ko milin. aaj se shuru hone vali is shrrnkhala mein main aapase batoonga Qateelsahab ki jindagi se judi baton ke sath unaki chand ghazalen aur najmein jo mujhe behad pasand hain.

Qateelka janm pashchimi panjab ke haripura, jila hajara (pakistan) mein huaa. Qateelunaka takhallus tha, Qateelyani vo jisaka katl ho chuka hai . apane ustad hakim muhammad shifa ke samman mein Qateelne apane nam ke sath shifaee shabd jod liya tha . Qateelapani prarambhik shiksha islamiya midil skoola, ravalapindi mein prapt karane ke bad gavarnameint haee skool mein dakhil huye, lekin pita ke dehant aur koee abhibhavak n hone ke karan shiksha jari n rah saki aur pita ki chhodi huee poonji samapt hote hi unhen tarah-tarah ke vyapar aur naukariyan karani padin. sahity ki or inaka dhyan is tarah huaa ki klasikal sahity mein pita ki bahut ruchi thi aur ‘katila’ ke kathananusara, ‘‘unhonne shuru mein mujhe kuchh pustaken lakar din jinamein ‘kissa chahar daravesha’ ‘kissa hatimataee’ aadi bhi thin. ve aksar unhen padhate the jisase unhen likhane ka shauk huaa.

Qateelshifaee ke bare mein mainne tafasil se jana, janab prakash pandit sanpadit kitab 'Qateel shifaee aur unaki shayari' ko padane ke bada. sach mein Qateelki shakhsiyat ka andaja aap unaki shayari se nahin laga sakate.

prakash is kitab ke parichay mein Qateelke bare bade rochak mein andaj mein likhate hain
"...........kisi shayar ke she’r likhane ke dhang aapane bahut sune honge. udaharanataः ‘ikabala’ ke bare mein suna hoga ki ve farshi hukka bharakar palang par let jate the aur apane munshi ko she’r diktet karana shuru kar dete the. ‘josha’ malihabadi subah-sabere lambi sair ko nikal jate hain aur yon prakrtik drshyon se likhane ki prerana prapt karate hain. likhate samay betahasha sigaret foonkane chay ki ketali garm rakhane aur likhane ke sath-sath chay ki chuskiyan lene ke bad (yahan tak ki kuchh shayaron ke sambandh mein yah bhi suna hoga ki unake dimag ki girahen sharab ke kaee paig pine ke bada) khulani shuru hoti hain. lekin yah andaj shayad hi aapane suna ho ki shayar she’r likhane ka mood lane ke liye subah char baje uthakar badan par tel ki malish karata ho aur fir tabadatod dand pelane ke bad likhane ki mej par baithata ho. yadi aapane nahin suna to soochanarth nivedan hai ki yah shayar ‘katila’ shifaee hai.

‘katila’ shifaee ke she’r likhane ke is andaj ko aur usake likhe she’ron ko dekhakar aashchary hota hai ki is tarah langar-langot kasakar likhe gaye she’ron mein kaise jharanon ka-sa sangit foolon ki-si mahak aur urdu ki paramparagat shayari ke mahaboob ki kamar-jaisi lachak milati hai. arthat aise vakt mein jabaki usake kamare se kham thokane aur paintaren badalane ki aavaj aani chahiye, vahan ke vatavaran mein kuchh aisi gunagunahat basi hoti hai.........."


Qateelki shayari ki khas bat ye hai ki vo bashir badr sahab ki tarah hi bade sade lafjon ka prayog kar bhi kamal kar jate hain. misal ke taur par unaki is ghazal ke chand ashaaar dekhiye

pyas vo dil ki bujhane kabhi aaya bhi nahin
kaisa badal hai jisaka koee saya bhi nahin

berukhi is se badi aur bhala kya hogi
ik muddat se hamein usane sataya bhi nahin

sun liya kaise khuda jane jamane bhar ne
vo fasana jo kabhi hamane sunaya bhi nahin

tum to shayar ho Qateel aur vo ik aam sa shakhs
us ne chaha bhi tujhe jataya bhi nahin


kitani sahajata se kahe gaye sher jisako pad kar dil apane aap pulakit ho jata hai. agar meri bat par ab tak yakin nahin aa raha to Qateelke is andaje bayan ke bare mein aapaka kya khayal hai ?

gujare dinon ki yaad barasti ghata lage
gujaroon jo us gali se to thandi hava lage

mehaman ban ke aaye kisi roz agar vo shakhs
us roj bin sajaye mera ghar saja lage

jab tashanagi ki aakhiri had par mile koyee
aankh usaki jam badan mahakada lage

main is liye manata nahin vasl ki khushi
mujhako rakib ki na kahin badaduaa lage

vo kahat dosti ka pada hai ki in dinon
jo muskura ke baat kare aashana lage

ek aisi khushajamal pari apni soch hai
jo sabake sath rah ke bhi sab se juda lage

dekha ye rang baith ke bahuroopiyon ke beech
apane siva har ek mujhe parasan lage

tark-ye-vafa ke bad ye us ki ada "Qateel"
mujhko sataye koyee to us ko bura lage


aur khud agar Qateel Shifaee aapako ye ghazal apani aavaj mein sunayen to kaisa rahe ? to lijiye hajarat suniye ye ghazal Qateel ki apani aavaz mein...
