Jigar Nazaara-I-Gul Ki Huwa Hawas Main Lahu; an Urdu Ghazal by Bahadur Shah Zafar

Mirza Abu Zafar Sirajuddin Muhammad Bahadur Shah Zafar (Urdu: ابو ظفر سراجُ الدین محمد بہادر شاہ ظفر‎), also known as Bahadur Shah Zafar (Urdu: بہادر شاہ دوم‎), on 24 October 1775 – died 7 November 1862), was the last Mughal emperor and a member of the Timurid Dynasty. He was the son of Akbar Shah II and Lalbai, who was a Hindu Rajput, and became Mughal Emperor when his father died on 28 September 1837. He used Zafar, a part of his name, meaning “victory”, for his nom de plume (Takhallus) as an Urdu poet, and he wrote many Urdu Ghazals under it. After his involvement in the Indian Rebellion of 1857, the British tried and then exiled him from Delhi and sent him to Rangoon in then-British-controlled Desi.

In the following “Jigar Nazaara-I-Gul Ki Huwa Hawas Main Lahu” (Urdu: جگر نظارہ گل کی ہوا ہوس میں لہو), a beautiful Urdu Ghazal by Bahadur Shah Zafar is presented. 

I hope you will like this and this will satisfy your great taste of Urdu poetry.
