Khwaja Ghulam Farid

Khawaja Ghulam Farid (1841-1901) was born in Chachran in Bahawalpur state. He belonged to the Chishti order of Sufism and composed as many as 272 Kafis. His kafis are of high literary merit. As far as his mystic experiences of oneness with God are concerned, he is unique in his description of lover's wailings caused by the separation from the spouse. Khwaja Farid's poetry is formally distinguished by the remarkable level of its sophistication, not least in the editorial care which he gave to its textual accuracy and careful internal organization.
