.اے ایمان والو! اپنے اقراروں کو پورا کرو۔ تمہارے لیے چارپائے جانور (جو چرنے والے ہیں) حلال کر دیئے گئے ہیں۔ بجز ان کے جو تمہیں پڑھ کر سنائے جاتے ہیں مگر احرام (حج) میں شکار کو حلال نہ جاننا۔ خدا جیسا چاہتا ہے حکم دیتا ہے (Surah Al-Maidah-1) بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ - - يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَوْفُوا بِالْعُقُودِ ۚ أُحِلَّتْ لَكُمْ بَهِيمَةُ الْأَنْعَامِ إِلَّا مَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ غَيْرَ مُحِلِّي الصَّيْدِ وَأَنْتُمْ حُرُمٌ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ مَا يُرِيدُ

  Syed Waris Shah And His Heer Waris Shah  

Syed Waris Shah And His Heer Waris Shah:

Syed Waris Shah was born in Jandiala Sher Khan, Punjab, present-day Pakistan into a reputed Sayyid family and was a descendant of Sayyid Muhammad Al-Makki through his son Sayyid Badruddin. His father's name was Gulsher Shah. Waris's parents are said to have died when he was young. Waris acknowledged himself as a disciple of an ustad from Kasur, namely Hafiz Ghulam Murtaza from whom he received his education. After completing education Waris moved to Malka Hans, a village twelve kilometres north of Pakpattan. Here he resided in a small room, adjacent to a historic mosque now called Masjid Waris Shah, until his death. His mausoleum is a place of pilgrimage today, especially for those in love.

The mausoleum complex was completed in 1978 and is a mixture of the Lahore School Architecture and Tughlaq Architecture. Waris Shah is primarily known as the author of Heer Ranjha whose verse is a treasure-trove of Punjabi phrases, idioms and sayings. His minute and realistic depiction of each detail of Punjabi life and the political situation in the 18th century, remains unique and the entire poem is an album of colourful and enchanting pictures of life in the Punjab, of varied views but always deeply absorbing. Waris Shah was a consummate artiste, deeply learned in Sufi and domestic cultural lore. It is said that the story of romantic love is a poetic expression of the mystical love of the human soul towards God – the quintessential subject in Sufism and a recurring theme in both Muslim and Hindu mysticism. Some authors also suggest that it was Waris Shah's own unrequited love towards a girl named Bhag Bhari that later became the foundation of the poem.
