Faqir Qadir Bux Bedil (Sindhi: فقير قادر بخش بيدل) (1873–1815) better known by his nom de plume Bedil (one bereft of heart), was a Sufi Poet and scholar of great stature. After Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai and Sachal Sarmast, other two stars that shone on the firmament of Sindhi poetry and who could measure up to them in excellence, were the father and son – Bedil and Bekas. They wrote poetry both in Sindhi and Persian. Bedil was well versed in a number of languages, Sindhi, Saraiki, Persian, Urdu, Arabic and Hindi. He has written poetry in Sindhi, Saraiki, Urdu, Persian and even in Hindi.

Early life[edit]

Bedil was born to a very pious family of Rohri. His father Khalifo Muhammad Mohsun was a disciple of Sayed Mir Janullah Shah Rizwi who himself was a great saint of his time, highly venerated and was chief of forty cardinals of Sufi Shah Inayat Shaheed of Jhok Shareef. Thus Bedil was brought up in such an enlightened environment under the guidance of Mir Sahib himself.It is narrated in the book "Diwan-e-Bedil" by Abdul Hussain Musavi that mid wife came and announced the news of the birth of child to father who was sitting in the gathering with Sufi Januallah Shah . She said, "You have been blessed with a child but alas, his one foot is physically twisted." Upon hearing this father said," He is not physically handicapped by one foot. In fact, he is the flag of Rohri city." This statement of child's father proved true many years later.[1] On his birth he was named Abdul Qadir but he preferred to be called Qadir Bux. He was a staunch Muslim who moulded his life strictly according to the laws of Shariah. He was very simple and frugal in his style of living and gave away whatever he received, to the needy.He followed the path of Ishq-e-Majazi (Platonic love) to attain the heights of Ishq-e-Haqiqi (spiritual love) as dictated by Mystic doctrine.He was a devotee of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar of Sehwan also. Although he had deformity in one foot, yet he undertook long journeys to Sehwan to pay his homage to the Saint's Shrine. He went to Jhok Sharif to pay homage to shrine of Sufi Shah Inayat Shaheed and also to Daraza, to visit the shrine of Sachal Sarmast.

Works[edit]

A rare manuscript of Besarnama "The without-head-book" by Bedil,a long Mathnavi attributed to Shah Inayat Shaheed reciting during his head's journey to Delhi from Thatta.

Bedil was the most voluminous poet of Sindh, even more so than Shah Latif, with 10 books of poetry to his credit. Most of his poems were written in Persian,Seraiki,Sindhi, Arabic and Urdu, and his famous Sindhi works were Wahdat Namo (Book of Union) and Surood Namo (Book of Melody). He compiled as many as 23 books on prose and poetry written in Persian, Sindhi and Urdu more known being:

  • Masanavi Riyaz-ul-faqr
  • Diwan-e-Sulook-ul-Talbin
  • Diwan Minhaj-ul-Haqiqat
  • Rumuz-ul-Qadri
  • Masanavi Nahr-ul-Bahr
  • Punj Gunj
  • Diwan Musbah-ul-Tariqat
  • Wahadat Namo
  • Sarood Namo
  • Diwan-e-Bedil(Sindhi)
  • Masnavi Dilkusha
  • Diwan-e-Bedil (Farsi)
  • Fe Batn Ahadees
  • Taqwiyat-ul-Quloob
  • Zahoor Nama
  • Qurat-ul-Ain Fe Manaqib-ul-Sibtain
  • Insha-e-Qadri
  • Tarikhai Wafat
  • Khutbat-e-Juma
  • Fawaid-e-Manavi[2]
  • Kursi Nama
  • Ramooz-ul-Arfin
  • Diwan-e-Bedil (Farsi)[3]

Renowned Scholar Dr. Nabi Bux Khan Baloch has termed Fakir Qadir Bux Bedil as last Sufi saint who wrote on Tasawuf and history of Sindh and taught mysticism through his poetry. 'Wahadat Namo' of Bedil is a thought provoking work through which Bedil Fakir has presented the essence of Sufism (mysticism). Bedil was the first scholar who wrote history of Jhok Shraif and the sacrifice of Sufi Shah Inayat Shaheed of Sindh.[4]

Poetry[edit]

Among his poetical compositions we have his famous elegy, written on the death of Sachal Sarmast immortalising the master and incidentally himself too. Some of the verses from this elegy are:

“Wonderful was the magic of love in Daraza, my friend Sachu was there, the intoxicated seeker and the Gnostic. Heavy was the shower of rain, of yearning of that hero. The pangs of separation were there, visible and invisible. Inherited he was, truly, with the rapture of oneness. Verily he was another Mansur, love itself incarnate. He was Attar the perfumer himself in fervour and sentiment. Commander he stood in the ranks of those given to love. Bedil haunts the door of the donor for the gift of his ardour. About himself he proclaims in the mood and style of Sachal; "I am what I am. Put on the various garments, and again divert myself of them".

Translation of some verses[edit]

The one whom you seek after,
Is none but your own self.
If you recognise yourself,
Then no any other exists.
This and that are same,
Just like voice, sound and echo.

Sufi Singers singing mystical poetry of Hazrat Bedil

Bedil! let it not slip from thy hands,
The trade of unitive state,
O' traveller of sufi path! this thought is profitable.[5]

O Bedil leave good and evil,
Go and seek divine love.


Divine love came; reasoning taken away, loads of miseries befell on me,
Heard of pain and separation, likewise agony came in my chest,
Bedil sans love, living in this world is meaningless .

Faqirs of Bedil paying homage on Urs mubarak


Except Him, whatever (I) understood,
O Bedil! love made me forget.


Die before you die,
Then you, O Brave, turn into real Muslim.

Your love is treasure,
Every breath is a special jewel,
Believe it O brave man,
Make the trade of unity,
Achieve the status of self-annihilation,
Eat the fruits of eternity,
With your eyes shall behold every moment,
The exhibition of celestial light.


While standing, sitting, talking or listening,
Keep this remembrance in your body,
Clean the mirror with this (Mirror-cleaning) solution.[6]

Urs[edit]
