    Classical Urdu Poetry | Urdu Poetry | Urdu Poetry Classical

    Persian poetry was for many centuries one of the major arts to be cultivated across the eastern Islamic world. The patronage of the great Mughal emperors encouraged further development of Persian poetry in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century India by both immigrant and native-born poets. While their works were formally cast in the long-established traditional poetic genres, some novelty of expression came from their development of the new baroque manner called the “Indian style” (sabk-e Hindi).urdu poetry classical

    The eighteenth-century switch from Persian to Urdu as the preferred language of courtly poetry in northern India had been linguistically foreshadowed by the preclassical Urdu poetry produced in the southern Muslim kingdoms of the Deccan. But the living tradition of classical Urdu poetry is identified with the period when the empire had collapsed under the twin pressures of external invasions and internal struggles into several successor states, notably the court of the Navvab-Vazirs of Avadh in Lucknow and that of the politically shadowy later Mughals in Delhi, both of which were maintained as puppet kingdoms by the British until the mid-nineteenth century.

    URDU LITERATURE

    Urdu literature (Urdu: ادبیات اردو‎, “Adbiyāt-i Urdū”) is literature in the Urdu language. While it tends to be dominated by poetry, especially the verse forms of the ghazal غزل and nazm نظم, it has expanded into other styles of writing, including that of the short story, or afsana افسانہ .

    Urdu is a language whose exceptionally complex linguistic and cultural history reflects the special position of Islam in the Indian subcontinent of South Asia. While linguistically related to Bengali, Hindi, Punjabi, and the other languages of the Indo-Aryan family (whose classical representative is Sanskrit), Urdu is distinguished by the very high proportion of Perso-Arabic elements in its vocabulary. This Islamic cultural orientation is also reflected in its written form, which uses the Perso-Arabic script with appropriate modifications to mark distinctive Indic features such as retroflex and aspirated consonants.

    While its origins elude precise definition, Urdu clearly began in medieval times from a mixture of the local Indian dialects of the Delhi region with the Persian spoken by the Muslim conquerors whose armies rapidly spread the new lingua franca across the subcontinent. Since Persian continued to be the preferred administrative and cultural language of the Delhi sultanate and the Mughal empire, it was only with the collapse of unitary Muslim political authority in the eighteenth century that Urdu came to be cultivated in northern India as a literary language for a courtly poetry that constitutes the classical heritage of Urdu literature.

    From the early nineteenth century, when British colonial rule was extended across northern India, Urdu came increasingly to be used also as a written prose language. British policy itself favored the development of Urdu as an official bureaucratic medium, and Muslim writers took ample advantage of the opportunities provided by the colonial state for the production of textbooks, newspapers, and very varied prose writings. It is from this early modern period, when British India was the scene of the most intense debates about the definition of Islam in the modern world, that Urdu became a language of Islamic expression second only in international importance to Arabic.

    Throughout the twentieth century Urdu successfully retained this role as an Islamic language while also developing as the medium of a modern secular literature much influenced by English. As an administrative and educational language, however, Urdu has progressively lost ground to modern standard Hindi, the rival Sanskritized language promoted as a replacement for Urdu by Hindu nationalists. Since independence from British rule in 1947, Urdu has thus increasingly become marginalized in its Indian homeland and identified with Pakistan. Although spoken there as a mother tongue only by Muslim immigrants from India and their descendants, Urdu is the official language of Pakistan, where languages like Punjabi, Sindhi, or Pashto have limited regional status only. As such, Urdu has been carried by the Pakistani diaspora to many other parts of the world, including the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

    اگر آپ میں محبّت کرنے کی صلاحیت ہے،

    محبّت کرنے والے لوگوں میں سب سے زیادہ مستحق آپ خود ہیں،

    خود کو تھپکی دیں--

    اپنی تعریف کریں، کچھ اچھے الفاظ خود کیلئے منتخب کریں،

    آئینے کے سامنے کھڑے ہوں، اور خود کو مُسکراتے ہوئے دیکھیں---

    آپ اہم ہیں، بہت اہم ہیں،

    دوسروں کیلئے مگر،

    سب سے زیادہ خود کیلئے۔۔۔۔۔❤

    آواز دے کے دیکھ لو شاید وہ مل ہی جائے

    Awaz de k dekh lo shaid wo mil he jaye

    Warna ye umar bhar ka safar raiga'an to hai .

    سچ کہوں تو اب کوئی راز چُھپایا نہیں جاتا

    جُھوٹی محبت کا بَھرم اب دِکھایا نہیں جاتا

    ٹُوٹا ہے میرا دل یہ کوئی شیشہ تو نہیں تھا؟

    پھر کیوں تیرے آئینے سے مرا سایا نہیں جاتا

    داغِ بے وفائی کو مرہم سے مِٹایا نہیں جاتا

    مٹ بھی جائے اگر تو یوں بھُلایا نہیں جاتا

    جب دل میں ہو بغض، نیتیں بھی ہوں ناپاک

    تب میل تن و پیرہن کا یوں دھویا نہیں جاتا

    مانتا ہوں رسوائی ہو گئی ہم دونوں کے درمیاں

    پر دلوں میں اپنی نفرت کا بیج بویا نہیں جاتا

    ٹوٹی ہے دل کی مالا سارے موتی بکھرے ہوئے

    یوں بکھرے موتیوں کو کبھی پِرُویا نہیں جاتا

    زندگانی بھی تو ہر ایک نئے غم کی کہانی ہے

    ہر اک غم کے خاطر چراغ اپنا بجُھایا نہیں جاتا

    چھوڑ کر چلے جانے والوں سے گلا کیا کریں اب؟

    ان کی راہ میں خون سے دِیا جلایا نہیں جاتا

    (( دانش دھرمانی ))

    I thought i travelled that much to escape from my reality,

    But subconsciously i knew,

    Safar me duaein Qubool hoti hain.

    And now i realise that is the main driving factor.

    اور بھی دکھ ہیں زمانے میں محبّت کے سوا

    راحتیں اور بھی ہیں وصل کی راحت کے سوا

    راحتیں اور بھی ہیں وصل کی راحت کے سوا

    اور بھی دکھ ہیں زمانے میں محبت کے سوا راحتیں اور بھی ہیں وصل کی راحت کے سوا

    Not only grief of love the world  is full of other sorrows, heartaches

    There are many other delights besides the delight of union
