Zaahid Sharaab Pine De Masjid Mein Baith Kar



I found three interesting and interrelated ashaar (couplets), while looking for what ‘Ghalib’ has to say about wine.

zaahid sharaab pine de masjid mein baith kar,
ya wo jagah bata, jahan khuda nahi.
Ghalib

masjid khuda ka ghar hai pine ki jagah nahi,
kaafir ke dil mein ja, wahan khuda nahi.
Iqbal

kaafir ke dil se aaya hoon yeh dekh kar ‘faraz’,
khuda maujood hai wahan, use pata nahi.
Faraz

It is interesting to note that Iqbal’s couplet is a reply to Ghalib’s couplet; and Faraz’s couplet is a reply to Iqbal’s couplet. It is evident that both Ghalib and Faraz are on the same line of thought that God is everywhere, within everyone, irrespective of caste and creed.
