Popular couplets, unknown poets-1

Many ash'aar have become part of our conversation but who penned them is not so widely known. Also, instances where one misra (stanza) got popularity while the other stanza was forgotten also abound in Urdu poetry.

1. muqaabla dil-e-natavaaN ne khuub kiya
This is Amir Tandvi's couplet:
shikast-o-fateh to ittefaaq hai miyaN/ muqaabla dil-e-natavaaN ne khuub kiya

2. Allah kare zor-e-qalam aur zyada:
khat unka bohot khuub ibaarat bohot achchhi/allah kare zor-e-qalam aur zyada

3....lahu pukarega aastiiN ka
qariib hai yaar roz-e-mahshar chhupega kushtoN ka khuuN kyo.nkar/ jo chup rahegi zuban-e-Khanjar lahuu pukarega aastiiN kaa
This is Ameer Meenai's couplet.

4.sar-e-tasliim Kham, jo mizaaj-e-yaar meN aaye
This is Khawaja Haidar Ali Aatish Lukhnavi's couplet:
agar bakhshe zehe qismat, na bakhshe to shikayat kya/sare tasleem kham jo mizaaj yaar mein aaye
