Akhtar Jawad Biography

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.

My father, a Moulvi Alim from Nizamiah, Delhi
and Moulvi Fazil from Nadvat-ul-Ulema Lucknow,
when as a Moulvi, found himself a failure,
switched to Aligarh for modern studies,
and secured marks during post-graduation
that is still a record.
Then he studied law at Lucknow,
Practiced as a lawyer at Gorakhpur,
but then he found himself again a failure,
How he could be a successful lawyer?
He could never become a liar!
He said, as a moulvi, he's a failure
As a lawyer, he is a failure
And that's why
he switched to the profession of teaching
He obtained the degree of Bachelor of Teaching from Aligarh
And he was appointed as a lecturer there.

I am also a failure,
As an accountant I always finished my works
in two or three or maximum four hours.
My seniors went on adding more works to my job description,
but they could never force me to earn more
by sitting late and working overtime.
I don't mind taking guidance from any book of wisdom
Besides Holy Koran,
I always remained guided by Bhagvad Gita.
" Karmanye vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana."
(You have the right to work only but never to its fruits.)
I am hopeful,
I don't know what I procure,
but the pains I endure,
make me so much confident and secure,
I'm sure, I'm sure and I am sure,
one day I'll be a master of allure.
Insha Allah!
(If God wishes so.)

The 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.

Janab. Akhtar Jawad is one of the GEM on this site and I am lucky to read his poems and literary work. It is indeed a difficult task to single out few poems from his poetry book. He writes with his heart. Apart from being a very passionate writer he is a great thinker and articulate narrator with vivacious heart. To write more about him would be like Showing lamp to Sun. May Allah keep him hale and healthy. I wish to read many more poems, Thanks much for nice inspirational poems.

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...

Shall I Compare Akhtar To A Ball Of String? If I compare Akhtar to a mere ball of string...., what fine visions would it, to me, then bring? A well-rounded fellow to be sure...; it's true! He's one who gives and gives to me and you..., and to his relatives and neighbors I am sure. His 'string' (of accomplishments) I'll bet is pure! (October 12, 2015) bri :)
