Riaz Khairabadi (also Riyaz Khairabadi) ریاض خیرآبادی

Riaz KhairabadiRiaz (also Riyaz) Khairabadi: Full name: Syed Riyaz Ahmad (1853–1934) was a poet who lived in Gorakhpur in United Provinces (Now Uttar Pradesh).  Riaz Khairabadi was a senior contemporary of Mehdi Ifadi. In his letter to Riaz Khairabadi, which he had written from Allahabad in 1931, Ifadi has lamented closure of Riazul Akhbar edited by Riaz Khairabadi from Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh. Mehdi Ifadi admits the fact that he has been a great fan of Riaz Khairabadi since his adulthood when he did not even know the meaning of literature. He has said that a whole generation of Urdu litterateurs had been raised by Riaz Khairabadi.Though Riaz Khairabadi used terminology of maikhana, saghar, meena, jaam, mai mainly in poetry, in real life he was a teetotaler.  (This is the first introduction of Riaz Khairabadi on any website after research done by Muslim Saleem and posted on April 10, 2011. Later, many websites lifted this research piece from this blog) Specimen of kalaam:

mai rahe meenaa rahe gardish mein paimaanaa rahe

mere saaqi tuu rahe aabaad maikhana rahe
hashr bhi to ho chukaa rukh se naheen hatati naqaab
had bhi aakhir kuchh hai kab tak koi deevana rahe
raat ko jaa baithate hain roz ham majanun ke paas
pahle anaban rah chuki hai ab to yarana rahe
zindagi ka lutf ho udti rahe haradam ‘Riaz’
ham hon sheeshe ki pari ho ghar parikhana rahe

خانقہ ہے،  میں ہوں،  مینا ہے،  سبو ہے،  جام ہے

ہاتھ میں تسبیح ہے، لب پر خدا کا نام ہے

 

انکا یہ کہنا سحر ہوتی ہے چھوڑو جان بھی

اور میرا ان سے یہ کہنا ابھی تو شام ہے
