ABSTRACT

Pashto classical poetry has accepted the impact of Quran and hadith in a large scale and big margin. Same is the case with Qasim Ali Khan Afridi ( 8811 – 8221 Hijri, approximately). He seems to be a representative poet of roshanite school of thought. In addition he looks to be an Islamic scholar as well specially, on the basis of his poetry. In this research paper the impact of Quran on the poetry of the said poet is discussed. The comparison is made between Quranic verses and his relative poetry in this regard. This is completely a new aspect of his poetry as no one has written about it so far.
