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.

Wasif Ali Wasif Poetry & Urdu Quotes

ان سے ہو روز ملاقات ضروری تو نہیں

ہو ملاقات میں کچھ بات ضروری تو نہیں

جام چھلکاتی ہو برسات ضروری تو نہیں
مے کشی رند خرابات ضروری تو نہیں

یوں تو ہر رات کی قسمت میں ہے سحر لیکن
ہاں مگر ہجر کی اک رات ضروری تو نہیں

ہے کوئی پردہ تخیل کے پیچھے نہاں
حسن پابندِ حجابات ضروری تو نہیں

چشم ساقی کا تلطف ہے مشیت واصف
