He lies buried there today and his tomb has become a popular shrine, to which devotees congregate in large numbers. However, Zafar had always wanted to be buried in his beloved Delhi, having bshadur his gravesite in Mehrauli next to the Shrine of Khwaja Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kakithe original Sufi Chishti saint of Delhi. Zafar shsh his predecessor Akbar Shah II had gotten a summer palace constructed here — including a remarkable small mosque in marble, the Moti Masjid — which has since come to be known as the Zafar Mahal complex.
This monument by the last Mughal king, along with his famous Urdu poetry, are the final direct cultural products of the remarkable empire. I wish you had made me the master of royals, Or made my crown the bowl for alms and betrayals.
You should have made me mad, crazy only for you, Why did you make me wise, capable of denials? You made me poor, fit ehayari for sifting through dust, And I wish the dust of her feet were my trials.
If you made me intoxicated with love, Why did you make the measure of ehah small vials? A wretched heart torn a hundred times over lives, To be bwhadur shoulder to rest her hair is my desire.
If I were not worthy to be with the Sufis, Could have been good for the company of drunks, defiant? Bahxdur fire of beauty was not unveiled in the garden, Or the bulbul too would have been made a moth on fire.
Bahadur Shah Zafar Poetry – Ghazals
This incessant world is a vile place, O Zafar, Its cities should have been desolate and dire. The heart is asunder, singed to a kebab, This love has been the disaster of my life. Why should I not drink my blood in envy? When today, with my rival they wine.
For you, I wandered streets with tearful eyes, Setting my heart on you was misery. We have washed shayaari street with a storm of tears, Our begging bowl of a cap is now empty. Without replies now, this is what we found, That the bahadurr is bahacur sole reply. Had asked for your picture to console my heart, Looking at it I am more uneasy. Zafar, change the refrain, recite that ghazal, Of which each verse is your picked poetry.
Shayari of Bahadur Shah Zafar
The intoxication of love has given me flight, In bliss, I fly some things, somewhat. Let them think me their humble servant, I am the dust of the road, of the feet — somewhat. I have got the blessed eye of faith, O Zafar, from something I have moved to somewhat. This piece originally appeared on Scroll.

Sad history of the sub continent. Before he died his sons heads were bauadur to him on a plate. He was a gentle king in the wrong time. In another age, he would have been a gift of benovalence to the land. But his incompetence to hold his empire against challenges led to unmeasurable sorrows to the subcontinent. Analyze the life and time of the Moghuls and you will find a lesson history bahavur to how they fell to the British invasion. Thank you Dawn – thank you very much for this article; just beautiful and it was so enjoyable to read the article and so soothing to listen to the lyrics.
It would have been great if the author provided these ghazals in Urdu script as well. The essence and impact of the poetry dissipates when we try to understand zavar text in Roman. It would have been nice and informative if the pictures in this article were accompanied by captions.
He still rules kingdom of urdu poetry alongwith his grand viziers like zauq and ghalib despite losing his own great mughal empire.
When west was building universities. Moguls were busy building Forts for their intertainment Taj Mahal and such. Their down fall was imminent. There is no university, library or hospital built by Mogals. Emad Ranjit Singh was a ruler par excellence, the only real ruler of Punjab and Present day pukhtoonkwa region. Kings are supposed to rule effectively and efficientlywhich he did throughout his long reign. Zafar on the other hand was not cut out to be a person of authority let alone king of Hindustan.
Abdul Muqtadir they stopped innovation and became content. ARK – that’s an outdated version of history you are talking about. The truth is that the Mughal empire was under Maratha suzreinity after Aurangzeb passed away. They had to offer hahadur in the form of Chauth and Sardeshmukhi. Also the succession plan needed to be approved by the Marathas.
Bahadur Shah was the dying light of an already dead empire. Abdul Muqtadir – they were already under Maratha control before the British came. There was no Mughal army that fought the British. The 3 wars that gave British control over India were 1. Anglo-Maratha war that ended with the treaty of bassain 3. Anglo-Sikh wars that ended with the collapse of the Sikh empire.
One could include Tipus war with the British but that that much more a reactionary war to try and unshackle British control over Mysore already established before Tipu. Mughal dynasty ended with him Lesson from history is. I request the central government to bring back the remains of Prithviraj Chauhan from Afghanistan and of Bahadur Shah Zafar from Myanmar back to Delhi, their Capital and beloved city!
These heroes deserve to rest in the historic city of their ancestors. For them to be away from Delhi is an insult to them and a blot on modern-day Republic of India which is the natural inheritor of the great Indian Civilization. Plz publish some articles about history of subcontinent, urdu, literature and regional languages regularly. Buddy, they were rulers, not poets and Bahadur Shah was the weakest ruler of them because he was a poet. Similarly, Maharaja Ranjit Singh was a ruler – a strong one at that and not a poet!
You spend time either to be a philosopher or to administer your country! When Nadar shah attacked Delhi, Mughal king was so terrified that he refused to come back to Delhi.
After that Mughal rule was restricted to red fort only. Hence Mughal king Shah Alam was also known as king of 14sqkm. In Sikhs won the Delhi and Mughals became vessel state to Sikhs. So effective rule of Mughals on India was around years. As zafzr individual he was a competent person to rule. He could fire from his gun while riding a horse. However, the time was against him.
That was the difficult time that India was divided politically and to unite them to fight with much able foe the British. Todday, Zafar is live and yesterday he was live! His most famous poem is na kissi ki aankh kaa noor hhoon, and lagta nahin hai dil mera adopted in the movie Lal Quilla.

Bahadurshah Zafar inherited the rule but being so ineffective and inefficient ruler he was unfit to continue, thus met his fate. No regrets, he got more than what he deserved. Dynastic rules end when the inheritors are unfit to rule. Why should people feel sad!
