Amir Khusro Website
I am a pagan and a worshipper of love,
Amir Khusro Dehlavi, historically known as a prolific Persian poet associated with the royal courts of more than seven kings of Delhi Sultanate, is also a household name in much of North India and Pakistan through the playful Hindi riddles, couplets and songs attributed to him. On these pages you will find an essay about his Urs (death anniversary), another one about his Hindvi poetry, and many selections from his Farsi poetry, apart from other interesting stories and links. Sections about his musical genius and historiography will also be added here soon. You could go through the lyrics of your favourite Khusro qawwalis. Keep visiting this site often, as more information is constantly being added here.
The creed (of musalmans) I do not need;
Every vein of mine has become taunt like a wire,
The (Brahman s) girdle I do not need.
