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...

Best Poem of Akhtar Jawad

I Am In Love

I am often so attracted,
Mesmerized and enchanted,
Having watched pretty things,
With magic in their wings,
Flying at human height,
Touching eyes like a light,
Getting inside very deep,
With a pleasant soul peep,
Then my eyes smile,
Making heart juvenile,
And I say to myself,
Put book in the shelf,
Watch beauty an' sacrifice,
Your self, may be nice,
I then sing like a dove,
I am now in love.
