Welcome to the Classical Tradition of Urdu Literature

Urdu Gah is dedicated to preserving and promoting the classical tradition of Urdu literature. The glorious legacy of an eloquent language, a majestic literature and a rich culture left behind by the civilization of Urdu, deserves nothing less than a sincere exploration and a widespread revival.

The story of

Raheel Farooq

I am a poet, writer and spoken word artist. I’ve been active in the Urdu blogosphere for over a decade now. Urdu Gah is one of my assets that I am quite proud of.

My first book, Zaar, was a collection my Urdu poetry which was published in 2010. Later, I published Kalam, an anthology of aphorisms selected from my English writings. The latest in the series is Why I am a Muslim: And a Christian and a Jew which has been published in 2020. I have also released two audio albums of Urdu spoken word (poetry readings) recently.


Art is what appeals to the a priori.
