vo aaye ghar me.n hamaare Khudaa kii qudrat hai
kabhi ham un ko kabhii apane ghar ko dekhate hai.n

Welcome to the Urdu Poetry Archive! Urdu poetry is like a vast ocean. Walking along its shores on the sands of time, I have gathered a few gems that I would like to share with you.

The ghazals and nazms in the Urdu poetry archive have been indexed alphabetically as well as by poet. As of 31st December, 2005 there are 1826 ghazals and nazms by 343 poets in the archive. The Index of Singers has been revamped and is now available under Ghazal Singers. This is a relatively new section and covers only a few singers at the moment.

The ghazals and nazms are written in transliterated Urdu (Urdu written in the English script). I recommend that you spend a few minutes getting to know the transliteration scheme that I use. This will make it easier for you to find and read the ghazals and nazms in Romanized Urdu. These search tips may also prove helpful in finding what you are looking for.
