Allama Jamil Mazhari and his poetry

Legendary Urdu poet Jamil Mazhari

Legendary Urdu poet Jamil Mazhari

Allama Jamil Mazhari is a name that is taken with utmost respect in Urdu circles. The complete works of this legendary poet have recently been published.

The voluminous Kulliyat-e-Jamil Mazhari is a must for every bibliophile. The first part has over 200 Nazms. Educational Publication House has printed it.

A leading poet of his generation, Allama Jamil Mazhari never cared about name or fame. And this is one reason, he was often neglected by critics.

hamiiN the apne liye aap ek hijaab Jamil
ham uTh gaye to zamane ne hamko pahchaana

Jahangir Raza Kazmi, Hasan Shakil Mazari, Husain Khurshid Mazhari and Afzal Hasan Jafri have compiled this unique book. Another famous couplet of the poet:

baqadar paimaana-e-takhayyul suruur har dil meN khudii ka
gar na ho ye fareb-e-paiham to dam nikal jaaye aadmii ka

Interestingly, the other day Hindi blog Mohalla had mentioned Allama Mazahri and his visit to meet Jawaharlal Nehru. As per the anecdote, Allama was tired because of the long journey from Bihar and slept while sitting on the chair.

Though Dinkar and Suhail Azimabadi were alarmed, Nehru didn’t mind it and conversed in soft voice so as not to disturb his sleep.

Meanwhile, I must thank eminent poet Allama Ali Abbas Ummeed for letting me see the book and write a piece on it. This book can be obtained from Educational Publication House by sending an email to info@ephbooks.com

  3. I recited his marsiya and Molvi Nazeer Hussain Nazeer ( Uncle of Allama Jameel Mazhari ) in the following link…

    ishrat kaday mein bada gusarooN ki raat hai
    dunyae rang o bo mein nigarooN ki raat hai
    aur karbala mein sajda guzaroon ki raat hai
    yasrib ke dobtay howay taroon ki raat hai

    mehlat mili hai shab ki imame hijaz ko
    khaimoo mein ja rahay hain namazi namaz ko

Not many people know that Jameel Mazhari was the Publicity Officer of the popular ministry of the Congress (1937-39) of Bihar, and he resigned when the Congress resigned due to India’s unwilling drag into the war by its colonial masters Along with Mazhari, Dinkar was also a Publicity Officer, but Dinkar continued in the office, yet it was Dinkar who got the honour of Rashtrakavi.
