Vali was the most prominent North Indian Urdu poet of the seventeenth century. He forms a link between the Deccani poets who wrote in the southern dialect, and the poets of Delhi who wrote in the northern dialect which was more Persianised. His diwan became the trendsetter for other poets. Most of his poetry consists of ghazals but his divan also includes rubai, naat, mukhammis, etc. His most favourite themes were mystical and earthly love. He is also known as the architect of the modern poetic language which is a blend of Persian and Hindi vocabulary.
