SEEMAB: LIFE & POEMS<br /><br />Translation & Introduction by Paul Smith<br /><br />Seemab began ghazal writing in the 19th century and became a disciple of the poet Dagh Dehlvi. He did Urdu translation in rhyming poetry of the Quran. He also translated into Urdu the Masnavi of Rumi, a massive task. His ghazals are suffused with true Sufism. The Perfect Spiritual Master, Meher Baba (pen-name ‘Huma’), while listening to a ghazal-singer singing a ghazal of Seemab was so impressed by a particular couplet that he stopped the singer and declared that because of it he had bestowed on Seemab the ultimate gift of liberation or God-realization. The first poem in this collection is that ghazal. This is the only translation of his ghazals and it has correct rhyme structure of the originals. Introduction on his Life & Times & Poetry and on the ghazal.

RABI’A AL-ADAWIYYA: LIFE & POEMS<br />Translation & Introduction Paul Smith<br /><br />RABI’A OF BASRA (717-801). Her Spiritual Master was Hazrat Hassan Basri. Throughout her life, her Love of God, poverty and self-denial did not waver. As her fame grew she had many disciples. She also had discussions with many of the renowned religious people of her time. More interesting than her absolute asceticism, however, is the actual concept of Divine Love that Rabi’a introduced. She was the first to introduce the idea that God should be loved for God’s own sake. She is widely considered to be the most important of the early Sufi poets. She was the first in a long line of female Sufi mystics. Included with a selection of her few poems in the correct form & meaning is a biography, selected bibliography and essay on Sufi Poetry. <br /><br />~Introduction to Sufi Poets Series~<br /><br />‘AISHAH Al-BA’UNIYAH, AMIR KHUSRAU, ANSARI, ANVARI, AL-MA’ARRI, ‘ARIFI, ‘ATTAR, ABU SA’ID, AUHAD UD-DIN, BABA FARID, BABA AZFAL, BABA TAHIR, BEDIL, BULLEH SHAH, DARA SHIKOH, GHALIB, GHANI KASHMIRI, HAFIZ, HASAN DEHLAVI, IBN ‘ARABI, IBN YAMIN, IBN AL-FARID, IQBAL, INAYAT KHAN, ‘IRAQI, JAHAN KHATUN, JAMI, JIGAR, KAMAL AD-DIN, KABIR, KHAQANI, KHAYYAM, LALLA DED, MAKHFI, MANSUR HALLAJ, MIR, MU’IN UD-DIN CHISHTI, NAZIR, NESIMI, NIZAMI, NUND RISHI, OBEYD ZAKANI, RABI’A, RAHMAN BABA, RUMI, SADI, SA’IB, SANA’I, SARMAD, SHABISTARI, SHAH LATIF, SHAH NI’MAT’ULLAH, SULTAN BAHU, YUNUS EMRE, EARLY ARABIC SUFI POETS, EARLY PERSIAN SUFI POETS, URDU SUFI POETS, ETC. 90-120 pages each. <br /><br />Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of many books of Sufi poets from the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, ‘Attar, Sana’i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Mu’in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre.

MAJNUN (QAYS IBN AL-MULAWWAH)<br /> <br />Life & Poems<br /><br />Translation & Introduction Paul Smith<br /><br />Majnun was a real person! Qays (Majnun=’madman) was a youth, a Bedouin poet in the seventh century of the Bani Amir tribe in the Najd desert in Arabia. He fell in love with Layla from the same tribe whom he was denied. (It is said that Shakespeare was inspired by their tale for Romeo & Juliet from their tragic love story). Most of his recorded poetry was composed before his descent into love-madness (mast) then through a Perfect Master… his spiritual unification with his beloved. Here in the form of the qit’as in which they were composed, is the largest collection of his immortal poems translated into English. <br /><br />~Introduction to Sufi Poets Series~<br /><br />‘AISHAH Al-BA’UNIYAH, AMIR KHUSRAU, ANSARI, ANVARI, AL-MA’ARRI, ‘ARIFI, ‘ATTAR, ABU SA’ID, AUHAD UD-DIN, BABA FARID, BABA AZFAL, BABA TAHIR, BEDIL, BULLEH SHAH, DARA SHIKOH, GHALIB, GHANI KASHMIRI, HAFIZ, HASAN DEHLAVI, HUMA, IBN ‘ARABI, IBN YAMIN, IBN AL-FARID, IQBAL, INAYAT KHAN, ‘IRAQI, JAHAN KHATUN, JAMI, JIGAR, KAMAL AD-DIN, KABIR, KHAQANI, KHAYYAM, LALLA DED, MAKHFI, MAJNUN, MANSUR HALLAJ, MIR, MU’IN UD-DIN CHISHTI, NAZIR, NESIMI, NIZAMI, NUND RISHI, OBEYD ZAKANI, RABI’A, RAHMAN BABA, RUMI, SADI, SA’IB, SANA’I, SARMAD, SHABISTARI, SHAH LATIF, SHAH NI’MAT’ULLAH, SULTAN BAHU, YUNUS EMRE, EARLY ARABIC SUFI POETS, EARLY PERSIAN SUFI POETS, URDU SUFI POETS, ETC. 90-120 pages each. <br /><br />Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of many books of Sufi poets of the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, ‘Attar, Sana’i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Mu’in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre.

SADI’S<br />PAND-NAMA or BOOK OF WISDOM<br /><br />Translation & Introduction Paul Smith<br /><br />Sadi of Shiraz (1210-1291), a contemporary of Rumi who influenced him, was another Perfect Master Poet who expressed himself in the ruba’i form as well as hundreds of ghazals in his beautiful Divan that often also contained images from dervish dancing. Sadi was a great traveller who spent forty years on the road throughout the Middle-East, North Africa and India and many of the incidents he experienced he wrote down in his two most famous works when he finally returned to his beloved birth-place… The Rose Garden (Gulistan) and The Orchard (Bustan). Sadi’s mystical love poetry, his ghazals, although almost unknown in the West, are loved by his fellow-countrymen almost as much as those of Hafiz whom he greatly influenced. Sadi composed in rhyming couplets or masnavi form a faqmous Pand-Nama or ‘Book of Wisdom’ in the style of ‘Attar who was the first to do so. “Concise and elegant the work is most popular throughout the length and breadth of the Persian-speaking East. This may indeed well be the case, inasmuch as, in addition to beauty of diction, it is written in a metre which flows in easy cadence, and fixes the words of the poem on the mind. Hence the lines are committed to memory to an extent not surpassed by any work in the Persian language.” Arthur N. Wollaston. Here is the first translation in over a hundred years and in the correct rhyme-form for the first time. Introduction: Life & Times & Poetry of Sadi; Selected Bibliography; Appendix: Pand-Nama of ‘Attar with selections. <br /><br />COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH’S TRANSLATION OF HAFIZ’S ‘DIVAN’.<br />“It is not a joke... the English version of all the ghazals of Hafiz is a great feat and of paramount importance. I am astonished.” Dr. Mir Mohammad Taghavi (Dr. of Literature) Tehran.<br />“Superb translations. 99% Hafiz 1% Paul Smith.” Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator of many works in English into Persian and knower of Hafiz’s Divan off by heart.<br />“Smith has probably put together the greatest collection of literary facts and history concerning Hafiz.” Daniel Ladinsky (Penguin Books author). <br /><br />Paul Smith (b. 1945) is a poet, author and translator of many books of Sufi poets of the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages… including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, ‘Attar, Sana’i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Mu’in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Omar Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre, Baba Farid, Shah Latif, Mu’in, Lalla Ded, ‘Iraqi, Ghalib, Nazir, Bulleh Shah, Ibn ‘Arabi, Ibn Farid, Rab’ia, Majnun, Mansur Hallaj, many others, as well as his own poetry, fiction, plays, biographies, children’s books and a dozen screenplays. www.newhumanitybooks.com

MAHSATI GANJAVI: LIFE & POEMS<br />Translation & Introduction Paul Smith<br /><br />We know little of Mahsati Ganjavi’s life (1098-1185) except that she lived in Ganjeh when Sultan Sanjar reigned and as she was a poet at his court she would have known Anvari. She was a court, dervish (Sufi) and ribald poet. She knew Nizami (she is said to have been buried in his mausoleum) and Omar Khayyam… and like Omar composed only in the ruba’i form and must be considered not only a master of that form but also to have helped to revolutionize it. She was an influence on perhaps Iran’s greatest female poet Jahan Khatun of Shiraz and Iran’s greatest satirist Obeyd Zakani. She was famous and also infamous for her truly liberated behaviour. Included in the Introduction are the life of Mahsati and a history of the ruba’i and a chapter on Sufi Poetry. Selected Bibliography. The correct rhyme-structure has been kept as well as the beauty and meaning of these powerful, mystical poems.<br /><br />~Introduction to Sufi Poets Series~<br /><br />‘AISHAH Al-BA’UNIYAH, AMIR KHUSRAU, ANSARI, ANVARI, AL-MA’ARRI, ‘ARIFI, ‘ATTAR, ABU SA’ID, AUHAD UD-DIN, BABA FARID, BABA AZFAL, BABA TAHIR, BEDIL, BULLEH SHAH, DARA SHIKOH, GHALIB, GHANI KASHMIRI, HAFIZ, HASAN DEHLAVI, IBN ‘ARABI, IBN YAMIN, IBN AL-FARID, IQBAL, INAYAT KHAN, ‘IRAQI, JAHAN KHATUN, JAMI, JIGAR, KAMAL AD-DIN, KABIR, KHAQANI, KHAYYAM, LALLA DED, MAKHFI, MANSUR HALLAJ, MIR, MU’IN UD-DIN CHISHTI, NAZIR, NESIMI, NIZAMI, NUND RISHI, OBEYD ZAKANI, RABI’A, RAHMAN BABA, RUMI, SADI, SA’IB, SANA’I, SARMAD, SHABISTARI, SHAH LATIF, SHAH NI’MAT’ULLAH, SULTAN BAHU, YUNUS EMRE, EARLY ARABIC SUFI POETS, EARLY PERSIAN SUFI POETS, URDU SUFI POETS, ETC. 90-120 pages each. <br /><br />Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of many books of Sufi poets from the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Pashtu and other languages including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, ‘Attar, Sana’i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Mu’in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre.

MIR: LIFE & POEMS<br /><br />Translation & Introduction Paul Smith<br /><br />Mir Taqi Mir (1723 - 1810) was the leading Urdu poet of the eighteenth century and one of the pioneers of Urdu. He was one of the principal poets of the Delhi school of the Urdu ghazal. He was born in Agra and left for Delhi after the death of his father whose emphasis on the importance of love and the value of compassion remained with him, imbuing his poetry. At 17 he had a mental break-down and suffered from bouts of madness all his life. After the sack of Delhi he eventually moved to the court in Lucknow where he stayed for the remainder of his life. Like many Urdu poets Mir’s literary reputation is from his ghazals. After moving to Lucknow his daughter died, then his son and wife. This, with other earlier setbacks, lends a strong pathos and melancholy to much of his writing. Like Obeyd Zakani and others before him Mir practiced the Malamati or ‘Blameworthy’ aspect of Sufism. His complete works or Kulliyat consists of 6 Divans, containing 13,585 couplets comprising all kinds of poetic forms: ghazals, masnavis, qit’as, ruba’is, etc He also composed a unique autobiography and a book on Urdu Poets and a book of spiritual advice for his son.
