The message of universalism in his poetry combined with his philosophical approach grant him the stature which is yet to be achieved by any other Urdu poet. In the following pages an effort is being made to have an overview of his poetry examining it at different yardsticks. The purpose is to highlight the salient characteristics of his personality as well as of his poetry. One can hardly doubt the depth of thoughts and technical mastery in his poetry which set very high standards not only in Urdu poetry but the poetry of the world at large. The dominant characteristic of his poetry is his logical way of narration. His poetry contains unparalleled pieces of imaginary. The use of words depict a great command on language. The language is used as an art in his couplets and it deeply reflects the societal values of not only his time but also the gradual evaluation of civilisations. One can easily find a musical rhythm used in his poetry like an artist. It is hard to decide whether Ghalib became great for writing his Ghazals or Urdu ghazal was honoured to have a poet like Him. There is no doubt that he is the brightest moon in the galaxy of classical Urdu Ghazal.

Metaphysical Elements in Wali Deccani's Poetry

  1. Nasir Ali
  2. Dr. Mamuna Subhani
Abstract: Wali Deccani is one of the earliest established poets of Urdu. He has the status of a teacher in Urdu poetry. Secondly, he also introduces new trends in Urdu poetry by using his artistic abilities. His contribution to creating elegance and sweetness in Urdu poetry had an important position in history. When we study the period of Wali, we found that the ideology of Wahdat-ul-Wujud was in vogue in India at that time. It was this ideology that served the people from their metaphysical thinking. The important thing we see in Wali's method is his journey from metaphor to reality. In his ghazals, he seems to be an aesthetic or idolater. But in reality he is endeavoring and adoring the inner soul in this veil. This article will discuss about metaphysical components of his ghazals.

Ideology in the critique of Fateh Muhammad Malik

  1. Imran Azam Raza
  2. Dr. Tabassum Kashmiri
Abstract: Professor Fateh Muhammad Malik (Born 18 June 1936) a renowned Pakistani Scholar of Urdu Language and literature. His literary contributions towards various branches of Urdu Literature have been acknowledged by prominent critics and literary circles. His attachment with the manifesto of Islamic theories, Pakistan and Muslim Nation Urdu writer, declare him a noted critic and scholar of Urdu literature. He developed his own peculiar style of his literary writings, which distinguished him from his contemporaries. In his literary works, he deals with the present-day subjects of his times. Malik passionately wrote and spoke about the Urdu language, the relevance of Pakistan’s ideology and Iqbal’s rediscovery of Islam for our times. They serve as his reference marks for judging all literature, and Malik is considered an authority on these subjects. A recipient of the highest civilian award, the Sitara-e-Imtiaz, he has written works that have appeared in prominent literary magazines and he has authored famous books such as Ta’asubaat(Prejudices), Tehseen-o-Tardeed (Praise and Denial) and Andaaz-e-Nazar (Perspective). He served for a long time at different renowned educational institutions and deliverd lectures in different countries. Most importantly, he stands out from his peers for championing the notion that all literature has to subscribe to an ideology — a moot point for many who oppose his views on literature. His style of critique is rather distinctive: he quotes long passages from the literary piece in question to help the readers understand the work and the writer rather than promoting himself. His foremost consideration while judging a work is whether it contributes to society. A self-confessed progressive, Malik’s staunch views on Pakistan’s ideology may hint otherwise: he asserts that Pakistan’s existence and progress hinges on Iqbal’s thought, which serves as a protective wall for the Subcontinent’s Muslims. However his towering legacy in the field of literary criticism is undeniably his biggest contribution.
