    INTERESTING FACT

    Ghalib had seven children but unfortunately none of them lived for more than fifteen months and Ghalib died childless. Due to his loneliness and some other reasons, Ghalib had adopted Zainul Abidin Khan Arif who was his wife's nephew. But at the peak of his youth, at the age of thirty-five, Arif also died, and Ghalib wrote the Masnavi Qadir Namah for the young orphans of the late Arif. In fact, this Masnavi is a kind of dictionary in which Ghalib has given Hindi or Urdu synonyms of commonly used Persian and Arabic words so as to increase the vocabulary of the readers.

    dasht sahra aur jangal ek hai

    phir sah-shamba aur mangal ek hai

    jis ko nadan kahiye wo anjaan hai

    farsi bengan ki bazinjaan hai

    jis ko kahte hain jamai faza hai

    jo hai angDai wahi KHamyaza hai

    yarah kahte hain kaDe ko hum se puchh

    paD hai talar ek aalam se puchh

    jis tarah gahne ki zewar farsi

    us tarah hansuli ki pargar farsi

    bhiD ki bhai farsi zambur hai

    dispana unbar hai aur anbur hai

    farsi aaina hindi aarsi

    aur hai kanghe ki shana farsi

    hing anguza hai aur arzir rang

    saz baja aur hai aawaz bang

    zauja joru yazna bahnoi ko jaan

    KHashm ghusse aur bad-KHui ko jaan

    lohe ko kahte hain aahan aur hadid

    jo nai ho chiz use kahiye jadid

    hai nawa aawaz saman aur ol

    narKH qimat aur baha ye sab hain mol

    sir lahsan torob muli turah sag

    kha baKHur barKHez uTh ba-gurez bhag

    rui ki puni ka hai paghunad nam

    dok takle ko kahenge la-kalam

    geti aur gihan hai duniya yaad rakh

    aur hai naddaf dhuniya yaad rakh

    koh ko hindi mein kahte hain pahaD

    farsi gulKHan hai aur hindi hai bhaD

    takiya baalish aur bichhauna bistara

    asl bistar hai samajh lo tum zara

    bistara bolen sipahi aur faqir

    warna bistar kahte hain barna-o-pir

    pir buDha aur barna hai jawan

    jaan ko albatta kahte hain ruwan

    inT ke gare ka nam aazand hai

    hai nasihat bhi wahi jo pand hai

    pand ko andarz bhi kahte hain han

    arz hai par marz bhi kahte hain han

    kya hai arz aur marz tum samjhe zamin

    unuq gardan aur peshani jabin

    aas chuki aasiya mashhur hai

    aur faufal chhaaliya mashhur hai

    bansuli nai aur jalajil jhanjh hai

    phir satarwan aur 'aqima banjh hai

    kuhl surma aur salai mil hai

    jis ko jholi kahiye wo zambil hai

    paya qadir name ne aaj iKHtitam

    ek ghazal tum aur paDh lo wassalam

    sher ke paDhne mein kuchh hasil nahin

    manta lekin hamara dil nahin

    ilm se hi qadar hai insan ki

    hai wahi insan jo jahil nahin

    kya kahen khai hai hafiz ji ki mar

    aaj hanste aap jo khil-khil nahin

    kis tarah paDhte ho ruk ruk kar sabaq

    aise paDhne ka to main qail nahin

    jis ne qadir nama sara paDh liya

    us ko aamad nama kuchh mushkil nahin
