  • Hazrat Wasif Ali Wasif(R.A)

    Wasif Ali Wasif(R.A)(15 January 1929 – 18 January 1993) was a teacher, writer, poet and sufi intellectual from Pakistan. He was famous for his unique literary style. He used to write short pieces of prose on topics like love, life, fortune, fear, hope, expectation, promise, prayer, happiness, sorrow and so on. He was the regular columnist of Pakistani Urdu newspaper Daily Nawa-i-Waqt. His 1st column named “Muhabbat”. In his life most of his columns were combined to form books with his own selected title. He did poetry in Urdu and Punjabi languages. Probably no contemporary Urdu writer is more cited in quotations than he is. Later years he used to answer questions in specially arranged gatherings at Lahore attended by the notable community. Some of these sessions were recorded in audio and were later published as Guftgoo (talk) series. His mehfils never had a set subject nor did he lecture on chosen topics. His way was to ask people if they had questions and then he responded to these in his highly original style. His thought was more on mysticism, spirituality and humanity. There are about 40 books to his credit including Shab Chiragh, Kiran Kiran Sooraj, and Dil Darya Samundar. It is self-evident that his books as well as recordings of talks are a treasure trove of wisdom.

      i got to know Hazrat Wasif Ali Wasif on Youtube one month ago and since then i’ve downloaded and listened to all of his lectures(several times) posted there. i was almost finished with today’s kinda fight type speech of almost every Mullah. no one is out there who can teach, give speech at a level above firqa.parasti…
      And now after being Hazrat’s student (spiritual mureed also) i’ve started being a true muslim from the beginning, because he has taught me of;
      Islam’s true spirit, prayer; a way to talk to Allah, Hope; waiting for Mercy of Allah, Belief; just follow and don’t doubt, Love; loving not only good but Bad of a person too, Humanity; greater prayer,,,,, and so on….
      I like him, I love him, I miss him, I admire him….
      May Allah bless his soul, mercy him and rest his soul in peace.
      And Last But Not The Least______________…
      You people are really doing a great job. Thanx alot for keeping his spiritual and intellectual work alive…
