About The Book

شاد عظیم آبادی کا شمار اردو کے منتخب اور برگزیدہ غزل گوشعرا میں ہوتا ہے۔بلکہ شاد غزل کے ان معمار وں میں سے ہیں جنھوں نے غزل کو لفظی طلسم آرائی اور خارجیت سے نجات دلائی۔ان کا کلام مختلف جامعات کی نصاب میں بھی شامل ہے۔ان کے اشعار سلیس ،بامحاورہ زبان میں ہیں۔اسلوب بیان عام فہم سادہ ،دلکش اور دلنشین ہے۔متانت ،سنجیدگی ،وقار اور تمکنت ان کے کلام کے نمایاں اوصاف ہیں۔ان کے بہت سے اشعار سہل ممتنع کے ذیل میں آتے ہیں۔ان کی کلیات کی ضخامت کے لحاظ سے بہترین اور چیدہ اشعار بہت ہی کم ملتے ہیں۔ان کے کلام میں ایسی غزلیات بھی بکثرت ملتی ہیں جن میں مضامین و موضوعات کا تسلسل برقرار رکھنے کی کوشش کی گئی ہے۔موسیقیت اور غنائیت بھی ان کے کلام میں پائی جاتی ہے۔ان کےبعض اشعار تو ضرب المثل کا درجہ رکھتے ہیں۔پیش نظر ان کے کلام کا انتخاب ہے۔

About The Author

Shad Azimabadi was born Syed Ali Mohammad in Azeemabad, now Patna. He received traditional education rather early in his life and learnt Urdu, Persian, and Arabic. This was followed by his own studies of Islam and other religions which turned him into a liberal humanist. Although Shad hailed from an affluent family, he cared less for riches, and even lesser for the sources of his future sustenance. Following the general practice of poets in making, he too received counselling on his poetry from several master craftsmen. As he emerged as a poet of remarkable merit and a sound scholar, he earned the title of Khan Bahadur from the British government, with a monthly stipend of a thousand rupees.

Shad was essentially a poet of the ghazal tradition. He was no philosopher; nor did he have a taste for stereotypical themes but he distinguished himself on account of his refreshing ideas and novel ways of expression. He engaged with issues in ethics, philosophy, and mysticism, as he deliberated on the unity of God. Following Mir Anis, the celebrated poet of marsiya, he also practised this form. A full time poet and writer, Shad has left behind a huge amount of literary works. Some of them include a biography called Hayaat-e Faryaad, a historical tract called Nawa-i-Watan, collected poems entitled Kulliyaat-e Shad and Maikhana-i-Ilhaam, and an account of marsiya poets, called Fikr-e Baleegh.
