Aithay kaiyan nu maan wafawaan da,
Tay kaiyan nu naaz adawaan da,
asi peelay patar darakhtaan day,
Sanu rehnda khof hawawaan da.
Mukammal kartey kartey jis ko adhoora choor dia
Terey haathoon ki bani hoi woh tasveer hon mein
Aik terey siwa sab kuch to hai paas merey
Kiun kay ab terey liye shayed buhat haqeer hoon mein
Kuch to hai kay jis ki kami si hai Waris~
Haan! muhabbat kay maamley mein aik faqeer hoon mein
Waris Shah (1722–1798) was a Punjabi Sufi poet, renowned for his contribution to Punjabi literature. He is best-known for his seminal work Heer Ranjha, based on the traditional folk tale of Heer and her lover Ranjha. Heer is considered one of the quintessential works of classical Punjabi literature. The story of Heer was also told by several other writers—including notable versions by Damodar Das, Mukbal, and Ahmed Gujjar—but Waris Shah's version is by far the most popular today.
Jandiala Sher Khan is the final resting place of eminent sufi poet Syed Waris Ali Shah.
Located about fourteen kilometer northwest of Sheikhupura at the intersection of Sheikhupura-Vanike and Gujranwala-Chuharkana roads, the town is rather an unremarkable place. For about two centuries the author of magnum opus Heer-Ranjha has lied here in the local cemetery in an unassuming tomb.
Even though visited by thousands of fans and devotees annually, for long the grave site had gained very little attention from the official authorities. That is till 1975 when under the pressure of town folks and other lovers of his literary work the government of Punjab province of Pakistan decided to build a proper mausoleum complex in the honor of this great poet.
Jandiala Sher Khan is also the birth place of Waris Shah. In year1584 Emperor Akbar had moved his capital to Lahore and as favorite hunting place of Prince Salim the heavily wooded area of Sheikhupura had gained some prominence.
Most likely the family had settled in the area during the reigns of Emperor Akbar or his son Emperor Jahangir. Waris Shah was born to his fatherSyed Gul Sher Shah but the exact date of his birth is not clear. Various sources place his year of birth anywhere between1706 and 1730. Similarly his year of death is also stated to be somewhere between 1780 and1798. But there is agreement among historians that Waris Shah lived a long life and ultimately died in his family village. According to most estimates he died at the age of92.
Waris Shah wrote his love epic near about year 1766-67. During his lifetime Punjab was ransacked by Nadir Shah Afshar in 1739. In1747 Ahmad Shah Abdali annexed Punjab to his Kandahar based first Afghan kingdom. And in year 1780 Ranjit Singh wrestled Punjab away from the grandson of Abdali.
