Faiz Ahmed Faiz is acclaimed as one of the greatest Urdu poets to have emerged from Pakistan. Besides being a legendary poet he was also a prolific writer, journalist and politician. Apart from Urdu, he also had in Arabic, English and Persian which enabled him to beautifully craft his poetry in all four languages.

He edited several journals and newspapers, reflected on cultural issues, penned film scripts and documentaries. He was listed four times for the Nobel Prize of poetry. 

He is credited to have revolutionized the classical form of Urdu poetry, the ghazal, giving it a powerful socio-political resonance.

Jumbo Publishing, having carved a niche for itself by producing world-class books on sports, has now ventured into Urdu books and the multi-faceted Faiz Ahmed Faiz was most appropriately chosen as the subject of their first book in the national language. 

Prof Dr Nasim Fatima, an eminent library scientist and researcher, alongwith Mian Mohammad Saeed, who has been quietly serving the cause of Urdu literature for the last many years, have compiled the book titled ‘Faiz Huay Hain Mar Kay Amar’ which is due to be brought out by Jumbo Publishing later this year. 

Quite a few books have earlier been published on Faiz Ahmed Faiz but ‘Faiz Huay Hain Mar Kay Amar’ stands out as a most useful publication.
