Mehfill-e-Muqasida: Poets render verses praising Imam Husain at the unique mushaira

I have heard about Mehfil-e-Muqasida quite often but didn’t have much information about them. I have attended ‘Tarahi’ mushairas but could never participate in such mehfils.

In one of the Mehfil-e-Muqasida that was organised at Manglaur town in Hardwar districts, umpteen poets recited their verses. The couplets were in praise of Hazrat Imam Husain, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad.

Apart from citizens, members of different political parties and leaders were present at the poetic meet. Such events are held regularly in towns and also in praise of other great Islamic personalities also. A few couplets that were recited at this mushaira:

Chiraagh dast-e-havaa par jalaa diyaa jaaye

phir uske baad qasiida teraa paRhaa jaaye [Razi Biswani]

 

is ko kehte haiN saKhaawat, aise hote haiN saKhii

kaasa-e-dast-e-shaahadat meN bharaa ghar rakh diyaa [Dr Nashir Naqvi[]

 

na jaane kaun sii niyat se raah rokii thii

phir uske baad jinaaN tak thaa Hur, Husain ke saath [Tayyab Kazmi Lakhnavi]

 

Jarii thaa, bhaagne vaaloN pe vaar kyaa kartaa!

Khudaa ka sher, hiran ka shikaar kyaa kartaa! [Sarvar Nawab Lucknowi]

 

mere khayaal se hai Khatm-e-kaainaat yahiiN

dikhaai kuchh nahiiN detaa Husain se aage [Gulrez Rampuri]
