Sindh is a land of mystic poets. Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, Sachal Sarmast, Bedil and other mystic poets have chosen it to express their inner most thoughts in the form of mysticism. Mysticism is an attitude which purifies dirt, eradicates jealousy and other negative practices from human heart. Shaikh Ayaz, a great modern poet of the 20th century, also heralds mysticism through his poetic contribution. The purpose of this study is to trace out the elements of mysticism in Shaikh Ayaz’s verses.
