Ali Wasif(R.A)(15 January 1929 – 18 January 1993) was a teacher,
writer, poet and sufi intellectual from Pakistan. He was famous for his
unique literary style. He used to write short pieces of prose on topics
like love, life, fortune, fear, hope, expectation, promise, prayer,
happiness, sorrow and so on. He was the regular columnist of Pakistani
Urdu newspaper Daily Nawa-i-Waqt. His 1st column named “Muhabbat”. In
his life most of his columns were combined to form books with his own
selected title. He did poetry in Urdu and Punjabi languages. Probably no
contemporary Urdu writer is more cited in quotations than he is. Later
years he used to answer questions in specially arranged gatherings at
Lahore attended by the notable community. Some of these sessions were
recorded in audio and were later published as Guftgoo (talk) series. His
mehfils never had a set subject nor did he lecture on chosen topics.
His way was to ask people if they had questions and then he responded to
these in his highly original style. His thought was more on mysticism,
spirituality and humanity. There are about 40 books to his credit
including Shab Chiragh, Kiran Kiran Sooraj, and Dil Darya Samundar.
It is self-evident that his books as well as recordings of talks are a
treasure trove of wisdom. Visit the Page wher list of List of Books by Wasef Ali Wasef has been placed, select to read or download!
