My grandfather at Jamia Nizamia, Delhi
when found himself a failure,
he migrated to Medina whereat,
he obtained his dream's lovely allure,
the degree of Shaikh-ul-Hadith there
(the final degree of a Muslim Schollar) .
A pretty rose after a long endure.

    Akhtarji is a revered old man
    On PH, he is everyone’s kinsman
    He is an instant poet
    With poems in his pocket
    Young at heart is this bearded Musalman

    I wish him all success in life as a man and a poet.......!

    Sir Akhtar Jawad is an institution of poetry. He is prolific and profound. His poetry is a reflection of his rich imagination and vast vision. I'm an ardent admirer of his effortless poetry that flows from his pen smoothly. The reader benefits a lot from his versatility n depth. I have learnt a lot from him. He is like a teacher for me. Keep writing n keep inspiring sir. The power of your pen is great.

    Babajaan ki tareef ke liye main lafz kahan se laun... Kaise main apne dil ki kaifiyat bayaan karun...Ye to suraj ko charaag dikhaane waali baat hui. Kuch rishte bas ban jaate hai. Babajaan ki mohobbat, shafaqat aur sada dilli kissi ko bhi apni taraf mutasir kar sakti hai. Allaah SWT se dua hai ke aapko Allaah Paak achi sehat aur daraz.e umr se nawaaze aur hum sab aapke zer.e saaya aapke kalamon se faiz paate rahen. Aapki ghazlon, nazmon main roz marra ki azdawaji zindagi ki jhalak nazar aati hai. Ek ilm ka dariya hai aapke kalaam, Yunhi hum sab ko aapke tajrubon ko apne kalaam main dhaal kar humaari rehnumaai karte rahiye. Allaah aapko salamat rakhe.

    Akhtar Jawad sahaab is perhaps one of the most versatile member poet you would find on this website. His poems are filled with Romanticism with a CAPITAL R.. From simple everyday situations to a mere observation, he, with his rich imagination and ripe mind, can turn them into beautiful verse that are pleasing to read but will leave you in a state of rumination.. His ghazals and nazms are beautiful and will please your ears.. I have had the great fortune of reading his poems, commenting on them, and have the favour returned with kindness.. May the muse of poetry bless Akhtar sahaab with many more inspirations, so that we can continue to take pleasure in the works of fine poet...

    This morning I was looking for a poet to soothe me and though many do, I found the words of Akhtar Jawad to more than do the job. I found myself totally immersed in his poetic beauty. Akhtar Jawad takes me into his poetry, holds me by the hand and walks with me through some of the most amazing places and I find myself in awe of his words, his soffness, his love of nature and his joy of love. His expression is a mountain of beauty and he can open your eyes to absorb the magnificence of such beauty or close your eyes and soothe the soul. This morning I was privileged to feast on the literary delight served by an extrodinary poet and I say thank you to Akhtar Jawad. I'll be back over and over again to feast on more of your poetry...Amazing work given freely to the world.

    I am a great admirer of Akhtar Jawad Sahab. I would like to place on record my appreciation through the following lines:
    Here comes a poet, who writes with ease,
    Poems in English, Urdu and Hindi please,
    His love poems are ranked among the best;
    His poems on family life have no contest;
    Surely, he can serve as a school for poets;
    His poetry has the power to quell any riots.

Best Poem of Akhtar Jawad

Two Flowers And The Bird

Alas! it's me who fell down in love!
But one who got a crown in love,
Almost alike both are pretty flowers,
Smiled, Oh Bird! In your handsome bowers,
I was shy I could not sing in love,
And you wanted a sting in love!
Pleasure of stings that doesn't sustain,
When stings are over it turns in pain,
How could I give a sting to you!
I could only give a spring to you,
She in the bouquet and I am down,
Could you see me in a jet white gown!
Lying on the bed and before I depart,
Take back the spring of my broken heart!
