Urdu Poetry | Urdu Poems

Urdu poetry is a rich tradition of poetry and has many different forms which were basically originated from Arabic and borrowing much from the Persian language. Urdu language poetry is today an important part of the cultures of Pakistan and India. Like other languages, the history of Urdu poetry shares origins and influences with other linguistic traditions within the Urdu-Hindi-Hindustani mix.

Urdu is the national language and lingua franca of Pakistan, and an official language of five Indian states and one of the 22 scheduled languages in the Constitution of India.
