Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan, popularly known as 'Mirza Ghalib' was a Persian language poet from India during the last reign of the Mughal Empire. He is one of the most prominent Urdu and Persian language poets of all time who is known for his Shayaris on love, deceit and many other genres.


I myself am a fan of his lovely poetry. Most of his works touch the chords of your heart and the more you read his poetry, the more you are addicted. Amir Khusrow and Ghalib are my favourite shayars of all time. Today I am sharing a collection of the 23 best works of Mirza Ghalib in this post.

The ones in the images are my personal fovourites. I thought of taking this a little bit forward and have also included a 'people's choice' here which are nothing but tweets from different people all over the web, each expressing his love for this legend and paying tribute to him by remembering his best shayaris.

21. Nukta chi hai gam-e-dil, key sunaya na banay,

Jo lagaye na lagay bhujhaye na banay..

22. Sarayy raah jo unsaay nazar mili,
To naksh dil kay ubhar gayay,
Hum nazar mila kar jhijhag gayay,
Woh nazar jhukaa kar chalay gayay...

23. Bas Khatm kar ye Baazi-e- Ishq Ghlaib,
Muqaddar ke haare kabhi jeeta nahi karte..!

    Ibtedaae ishq hai rota hai kya
    Aage Aage dekhiye hota hai kya

    Qafile mein subah ke ek shor hai
    Yaani ghaafil hum chale sota hai kya

    Sabz hoti hi nahi yeh sar zameen
    Turkm-e-khwahish dil mein tu bota hai kya

    Yeh nishaan-e-ishq hain jaate nahin,
    Daagh chhaati ke abas dhota hai kya

    Ghairat-e-Yousaf hai yeh waqt-e-aziz,
    Mir isko raigaan khota hai kya

  5. Koi Umeed Bar Nahi Aati
    Koi Surat Nazar Nahi Aati

    Pehle Aati Thi Haal e Dil Pe Hansee
    Ab Kisi Baat Per Nahi Aati

    Maut Ka Aik Din Toh Mu'aeyan Hai Magar
    Neend Raat Bhar Kyun Nahi Aati

    There is no Comparison ofmirza ghalib shayari with other poets. I am not saying that other poets are not good but it's all about likeness and Mirza Ghalib is my favorite poet in Urdu World
