Ada Jafri Poetry

On August 22, 1924, Aziz Jahan was born in Badayun, Utter Pardesh, then British controlled India. When she was three years old, Maulvi Badrul Hasan died, and her mother was responsible for raising her. Ada Badayuni, under the pen name of Ada Badayuni, began writing poetry at the age of twelve. The social boundaries that surrounded her early life were impassable.

She is the most renowned poet, a writer in the genre of Ghazal, free verse, short essay, and memoirs. Besides, she is known as the first lady of Urdu poetry for her work.

Ada Jafri Personal life

When Aziz Jahan was only three, her father, Maulvi Badrul Hasan, died, leaving her and her mother to carry on. Now she was the core responsibility of her mother, and she took a great deal of care for her. Her early life bounds her to be what she was. But she kept on trying and succeeded in that.

At a wedding ceremony held in Lucknow, India, on January 29, 1947, she married Nurul Hasan Jafarey. Ada Jafarey changed her name to Ada Jafarey after acquiring her husband's name. Her husband, Nurul Hasan, worked for the federal government of India as a top official. As well as Ada Jafarey, her husband moved to Karachi after Pakistan gained independence in 1947.

In addition to writing columns for English and Urdu newspapers, her husband was also a litterateur. Anjuman-i Taraqqi-i Urdu, of which he was the president, was also established. 

Aamir, Sabiha, and Azmi were the children of Ada and Nurul Hasan Jafarey. The family of Sabiha lives in Potomac, Maryland, the US. Sabiha's husband, Zubair Iqbal, is a pharmacist and the father of three children Sabah, Yusuf, and Sameer Iqbal.

The Azmi Jafarey family has now relocated to Andover, Massachusetts, US. Azmi Jafarey and his wife Shua live there with their two sons, Faaez Jafarey and Aazim Jafarey. Ada Jafarey lived with her son Aamir Jafarey and his wife Maha and their Asra Jafarey in Karachi until Ada's death. As a great-grandmother of Sabine Rana and Rizwan Rana, the children of Sabah Iqbal Rana and Fawad Rana, Ada Jafarey has two great-grandchildren.

Nurul Hassan Jafry passed away on December 03, 1995. And he was a great source of inspiration, and she was greatly influenced by her husband, Nurul Hasan.

Ada Jafri Career

Traditionally conservative societies considered ladies incapable of thinking and expressing themselves freely. But this was not the case with Ada Jafarey. She made her impact on society through her poetry and poetic work. Nevertheless, she expressed herself with boldness. She took part in modern art despite being rooted in tradition. In the year 1950, she was acclaimed as the First Lady of Urdu Poetry due to her work.

Despite her social difficulties, her mother and her husband Nurul Hasan Jafarey proved to be the encouragement she deserves. She continued her literary activities. In her youth, she studied under great poets such as Akhtar Sheerani and Jafar Ali Khan Asar Lakhnavi. They were responsible for honing her skills and making corrections to her poetic works that led her to explore new horizons.

The first Ada Jafarey ghazal was published in Roman, a magazine by Akhtar Sheerani, in 1945. 'Main Saz Dhundti Rahi' was Ada Jafarey's first collection of poetry launched in the year 1950, which later led her to win the most prestigious claim of the first lady of Urdu poetry. Her poetic work contains short essays, brief biographies, and brief comments on the works of previous Urdu poets. Ghazal Numa, published in 1987, is a collection of those essays and commentary.

Aziz Jahan started her poetry at the age of twelve years, and she took the name Ada Badayuni. After her marriage with Nurul Hasan Jafarey, she changed her poetic name from Ada Badayuni to Ada Jafri.

Ada Jafri Poetry

Despite adhering to a gender-neutral style, Ada Jafri Best Poetry includes feminist themes like discrimination and dehumanization of women and their view. From her poetry, her personality seems to be missing.
