  Khawaja Ghulam Farid 

Khawaja Ghulam Farid (1841-1901) was born in Chachran in Bahawalpur state. He belonged to the Chishti order of Sufism and composed as many as 272 Kafis. His kafis are of high literary merit. As far as his mystic experiences of oneness with God are concerned, he is unique in his description of lover’s wailings caused by the separation from the spouse. Khwaja Farid’s poetry is formally distinguished by the remarkable level of its sophistication, not least in the editorial care which he gave to its textual accuracy and careful internal organization.

Themes of Poetry and Teachings 

His poetry is full of love with Allah, Prophet Muhammad s.a, humanity and nature. He has used the symbolism of desert life of Rohi Cholistan and waseb at most places in his poetry. 

The beloved's intense glances call for blood 
The dark hair wildly flows The Kohl of the eyes is fiercely black 
And slays the lovers with no excuse 
My appearance in ruins, I sit and wait 
While the beloved has settled in Malheer I feel the sting of the cruel dart 
My heart the, abode of pain and grief A life of tears, I have led Farid

  Beauty of Truth  

O’ Beauty of Truth, the Eternal Light! 
Do I call you necessity and possibility, 

Do I call you the ancient divinity,
The One, creation and the world, 

Do I call you free and pure Being,
Or the apparent lord of all, 

Do I call you the souls, the egos and the intellects,
The imbued manifest, and the imbued hidden, 

The actual reality, the substance,
The word, the attribute and dignity, 

Do I call you the variety, and the circumstance,
The demeanor, and the measure, 

Do I call you the throne and the firmament,
And the demurring delights of Paradise, 

Do I call you mineral and vegetable,
Animal and human, 

Do I call you the mosque, the temple, the monastery,
The scriptures, the Quran, 

The rosary, the girdle,
Godlessness, and faith, 

Do I call you the clouds, the flash, the thunder,
Lightning and the downpour, 

Water and earth,
The gust and the inferno, 

Do I call you Lakshmi, and Ram and lovely Sita, 

Do I call you the Gita, the Granth, and the Ved,
Knowledge and the unknowable, 

Do I call you Abraham, Eve and Seth,
Noah and the deluge, 

Abraham the friend, and Moses son of Amran, 

And Ahmad the glorious, darling of every heart, 

Do I call you the witness, the Lord, or Hejaz,
The awakener, existence, or the point, 

Do I call you admiration or prognosis,
Nymph, fairy, and the young lad, 

The tip and the nip,
And the redness of betel leaves, 

The Tabla and Tanpura,
The drum, the notes and the improvisation, 

Do I call you beauty and the fragrant flower,
Coyness and that amorous glance, 

Do I call you Love and knowledge,
Superstition, belief, and conjecture, 

The beauty of power, and conception,
Aptitude and ecstasy, 

Do I call you intoxication and the drunk,
Amazement and the amazed, 

Submission and the connection,
Compliance and Gnosticism, 

Do I call you the Hyacinth, the Lilly, and the Cypress,
And the rebellious Narcissus, 

The bereaved Tulip, the Rose garden, and the orchard, 

Do I call you the dagger, the lance, and the rifle,
The hail, the bullet, the spear, 

The arrows made of white poplar, and the bow,
The arrow-notch, and the arrowhead, 

Do I call you colorless, and unparalleled,
Formless in every instant, 

Glory and holiness,
Most glorious and most compassionate, 

Repent now Farid forever! 
For whatever I may say is less, 

Do I call you the pure and the humane,
The Truth without trace or name.

Khwaja Ghulam Farid

Kafi 18

I wasted my day (the entire lifetime) in shining my teeth with Musag (a tree root) . 
I spoiled all my day in makeup and in beautifying myself. 

I made linings about my eyes with eyeliner; I colored my lips red with lipglass. 
I decorated myself for my love. 
I spent all my life in scaring crows (traditionally, crows cackling is an indication of someone guest coming to see you) but my beloved did not come. 
I wandered in the dry land, in desert (rohi) and in woods and jungle, I wandered for my love. 
Never did I sleep well, not for a moment. My fate did not give me the turn (of good fortune) .
With the name of Allah I uncovered my head and picked the burden of love. 
Ranjha(the beloved of Heer; traditional) is mine, I am for him(here the name of Ranjha is used metaphorically for beloved) ,such is written in the sacred book of fate, right from the day of creation of the universe.
O Fareed! separation has taken too long a period, I have almost burnt to ashes. Pity! ! !
