Faqir Qadir Bux Bedil (Sufi Poet)
July 08, 2020

Bedil was a Sufi poet and scholar of great stature. After Shah Latif and Sachal Sarmast, two stars that shone on the firmament of Sindhi poetry and who could measure up to them in excellence were the father and son – Bedil and Bekas. They wrote poetry in Sindhi and Persian. Bedil was the most voluminous poet of Sindh, even more so than Shah Latif, with 10 books of poetry to his credit. Most of his poems were written in Persian, Seraiki, Sindhi, Arabic, and Urdu. His famous Sindhi works were Wahdat Namo (Book of Union) and Surood Namo (Book of Melody). He compiled as many as 23 books on prose and poetry written in Persian, Sindhi, Siraiki and Urdu. His annual Melo or Urs (death anniversary celebration) is being held at his shrine (Dargah) at Rohri.
