nahi nigaah mein manzil to justujuu hii sahii
nahi visaal mayassar to aarazuu hii sahii

na tan mein Khuun faraaham na ashk aankhon mein
namaaz-e-shauq to vaajib hai be-vazuu hii sahii

kisii tarah to jame bazm maikade vaalo
nahin jo baadaa-o-saaGar to haa-o-huu hii sahii

gar intazaar kaThin hai to jab talak ai dil
kisii ke vaada-e-fardaa kii guftaguu hii sahii

dayaar-e-Gair mein maharam agar nahin koi to 'Faiz'
zikr-e-vatan apane ruu-ba-ruu hi sahi

Faiz Ahmad Faiz

Faiz Ahmad Faiz  MBENI, was an influential left-wing intellectual,revolutionary poet, and one of the most famous poets of the Urdu and Punjabi, language from Pakistan and India. A notable member of theProgressive Writers' Movement (PWM), Faiz was an avowed Marxist. Listed four times for the Nobel Prize in poetry, he received the Lenin Peace Prize by the Soviet Union in 1962. Despite being repeatedly accused of atheism by the political and military establishment, Faiz's poetry suggested a more nuanced relationship with religion in general and with Islam in particular. He was, in fact, greatly inspired by both secular poetry and South Asia's Sufi traditions. His popular ghazal Hum Dekhenge is an example of how he fused these interests.
Faiz was controversially named and linked by Prime minister Liaquat Ali Khan's government for hatching the conspiracy namely Rawalpindi conspiracy case against Liaquat Ali Khan's government, along with a left-wing military sponsor Major-General Akbar Khan. Having been arrested by Military police, Faiz among others received a maximum sentence by Judge Advocate General branch, although his sentence was commuted after the assassination of Liaquat Ali Khan in 1951.
He remained extremely influential in Pakistan and his work continues to influence the country's literature and arts. Faiz was publicly honored by the Pakistan Government after his literary work was publicly endorsed and posthumously honored him with nation's highest civil award, Nishan-e-Imtiaz, in 1990.
