BIO OF HAZRAT AMIR KHUSRO
Amir Khusro, one of the most versatile personalities of medieval India, was born in 1253 in a place called Patiyali, Uttar Pradesh. His real name was Ab'ul Hasan Yamin al-Din Khusrow whereas Amir Khusro was his pen name. Also known as Amir Khusro Dehlavi, this creative classical poet was associated with the royal empires of more than seven rulers of Delhi. The life history of Amir Khusro is truly an inspiring one and he is considered to be one of the first recorded Indian dignitaries who are also a household name. Known for his immense contribution in literature and music, this legendary personality was born of a Turkish father and an Indian mother.
Amir Khusro wrote poetry from a tender age. His genius thrived and sustained itself with the support of his industrious temperament and, indeed the fortune of getting generous patrons in nobles, princes and kings. He emerged as one of the most original poets of India, innovating new metaphors and similes.
His deep and growing attachment with Hazrat Nizamuddin Awliya, took him away from more worldly ambitions and he turned more and more to spiritual seeking and ecstasy. Khusro passed in 1325 a few months' after his spiritual master Nizamuddin. Khusro was buried near his grave as desired by his master. These graves are a place of pilgrimage for both Hindus and Muslims up to the present day.
