This book contains a selection from the work of Shah Mubarak Abroo (1683–1733), the most prominent North Indian poet of the eighteenth century. His full name was Najam ud Din Shah Mubarak and Abroo was his nom de plume. A notable part of his work consists of mystic poetry, perhaps because he belonged to a family of mystics. Most of his poetry consists of ghazals but he also wrote masnavis, marsiyah, and mukhammis. One of his masnavis ‘Dar Mau’‘izah Ara’ish Ma‘shooq’ is a written description of an important cultural rite.
