A Lecture On Hzrt Ameer Khusro

Recommended Posts

Man tu shudam tu man shudi
Man tun shudam tu jaan shudi
Taakas na goyad baad azeen
Man deegaram tu deegari

I have become you, and you me,
I am the body, you soul;
So that no one can say hereafter,
That you and I are separate.
—  امیر خسرو دہلوی
Hazrat Ameer Khusro ® of Delhi

Ameer Khusroo may have been an Indian but that does not mean that this post should be in the Urdu forum. I think it should be in the Farsi forum.

Ah brother that lecture is in urdu. And yes he was a hindustani farsi poet/mystic.

Ah brother that lecture is in urdu. And yes he was a hindustani farsi poet/mystic. 



for the first time I have visited farsi section and found this interesting conversation.


I would like to add that Hz.Amir Khusro , in addition to being a farsi poet,  is a pillar of hindavi language which later developed into  Khari Boli .


This khari boli is  in two rasmulkhat. (script).


The one in Arabic /Persian rasmulkhat is Urdu ( drawing heavily from Arabic and Persian VOCABULARY) 


The other in Devnagri rasmulkhat (drawing vocabulary heavily from Sanskrit language) is known as Hindi.



But the early phase of these two languageS was developed by HZ. AMIR kHUSRO......these two languages have similar grammar( almost 95% same) but  differ mostly in vocabulary.



So he is among the founders of Urdu/Hindi. 



His RIDDLES  (paheliyan)are very famous both among Hindi and Urdu speakers.

    • I think it's important to give a gap between kids. I read somewhere that first two years are very important. Kids, who are abused or are neglected during first two years of life are less intelligent. These days we read so many news of mothers killing their own kids. I don't think they are criminals or murderers, I think they are just pressured into having kids and they don't receive any help, so they get stressed out or frustrated. It's hard for me to function if I don't get enough sleep for a day or two. Not getting enough sleep for months or years can drive you crazy. You are more likely to do a better job if you are able to spend more time on each kid.  I am not saying this about OP. I have seen a lot of people who are so loving towards kids but they are cruel with adults. It's crazy because if you are being mean to a kid's mother, it will have some effect on that kid, so you are hurting the kid. But some people become so kind when they are dealing with kids but they don't forgive the slightest weakness in the mother. At the end of the day, that kid will go home with the mother and she may take her frustration out on the kid intentionally or unintentionally. 
    • See, I'm not at all favouring akhbariyat but the comparison between Akhbaris and sunnis is clear cut. I'll be keeping a mile of distance from those who follow the one who oppressed Ahlulbait (ams). While what Akhbari says about those who do not recite shahadat e Salesa is not false but I have met hardcore WFers who says those who do not believe in wilayat-e-Faqih of Ayatullah Khamenei is not Shia. Problem is on both the sides. La'an is a part of tabarrah and the way of Ahlulbait (ams). This is a topic for some other day, some other thread. This has happened and is still happening. You are very naive or acting like one. No one's making anything. Stay some more time on SC and you'll yourself get to know those Shias of Mars. Why not consider same things for other Shia subsects. So you are uniting with sunnis because they are in majority. Interesting!. Gathering a vast number to fight enemies, Really? What have you learnt from Badr, Ohad.. Karbala? I'm not telling you to unite with Akhbaris or sunnis but if you want to united with anyone then subsects of shias are far better to get united than a sunni. I'm done. You can continue with polemics.
    • Modern Day Fake Akhbariyat.  Those who are enemies of Ulemas.   
    • Do you want me to unite with these kind of Akhbaris??  
    • I have tried to make the English translation of thus Salawat and approximate translation is given below: “Allah swt send blessing upon Muhammad and his family, In the name of Allah swt most beneficent and most merciful Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as sent inspirations and conveyed the messages (to him), and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as made lawful things halal, made unlawful things as haram, and  gave the knowledge of the book (to him), Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as (he) established the prayer, paid the zakat  and  invited to the religion, and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw by fulfilling the promise, have mercy on him, and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw by forgiving, covering and relieving the discomforts, Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw like removed misery, revealed the cloud, accepted the prayers, saved him from the peole, and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw like have mercy on servants, giveth life to land, break the oppressor, destroy the pharaoh (and his people), and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw like make wealthy in poverty, make successful against horrors, break the idols, and have mercy on mankind Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as send with the best of religion, raise with belief, by rejecting the others, and the greatness of the sacred house (Kaaba), Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw and his purified chosen family and salutation on them.  Allah swt send blessing upon Muhammad and his family,”.   Wasalam  (Some SC member  may also  improve it by further inputs)
