About The Book


اکبر الہ آبادی نے اپنی شاعری کا آغاز سنجیدہ شاعری سے کیا پھر طنزیہ اور مزاحیہ اسلوب اختیار کیا اور اس میں اپنا وہ مقام بنا لیا کہ ان کی سنجیدہ شاعری کو وہ اہمیت نہیں دی گئی اور وہ طنزیہ اور مزاحیہ شاعر کی حیثیت سے مشہور ہو گئے۔ اکبر نے اپنی شاعری میں معاشرے کے ان رویوں ، ان خیالات پر طنزیہ و مزاحیہ انداز میں اظہار خیال کیا جن میں توازن نہیں تھا انہوں نے اس پر زور دیا کہ ہمیں اپنے مذہب ، اپنی تہذیب اور قدروں کی بنیاد پر ترقی کرنی چاہیئے۔اکبر نے طنز و مزاح کی روایت کو آگے بڑھایا اور اردو شاعری میں اپنے اسلوب ، موضوعات اور زبان سے گرانقدر اضافہ کیا۔ اکبر نے شاعری کی مختلف اصناف پر طبع آزمائی کی۔ مثلا غزل ، قطعات ، رباعیات ، نظمیں اور بے قافیہ نظمیں وغیرہ۔زیر نظر کتاب "حج اکبر" اکبر کے کلام کا انتخاب ہے ، جس میں اکبر کی صحیح نمائندگی کی گئی ہے ، اور اپنے قارئین کو وہ سب یکجا طور پر پیش کرنے کی کوشش کی گئی ہے جس کا قاری متلاشی رہتا ہے۔ نیز مرتب نے مقدمہ کے ذریعہ اکبر کلام و فن روشنی ڈالی ہے۔

About The Author

Akbar Allahabadi

Akbar Allahabadi

Syed Akbar Hussain Rizvi, who was well-known as Akbar Allahabadi was born at Allahabad. To commemorate his work in judicial services, he was bestowed with the title, Khan Bahadur by the British Government during that period. Though he had achieved both, name and fame, his old age was full of grief. Following his wife and son’s death, Akbar's health deteriorated and he was confined to bed for the rest of his life. He was a bright, witty and affable man with a remarkable sense of humour which surfaces in his poetry too. He gave a humorous touch even to the serious themes of love and politics. He exhibited a good understanding and command on Urdu language which can be seen in his use of simple language in the most effective way. He also used English words in his poetry to bring about interesting impacts. His poetry ushered the modern culture at that time and clearly portrayed the transition in cultural values. Akbar's ghazals, nazms, rubaiyats and individual couplets span across three volumes, in addition to a collection of his poems on Mahatma Gandhi, titled Gandhinama. The title "Lisan-ul-Asr" was bestowed upon him for his literary excellence. His fame can also be attributed to his socio-politic criticism and humor that was often directed against the so-called highly westernized Indian Muslims. He passed away in 1921 in Allahabad.
