Yogi Allah Yaar Khan

Hakim Allah Yaar Khan Jogi, was a unbiased Muslim poet/writer wrote two poems almost a century ago, one on Chamkaur, under the title Ganj-a-Shaheedan and the other on Sirhind, entitled Shaheedan -a-Wafa. His ancestors were from Deccan, but he was settled in Anarkali, Lahore. He used to wear royal Achkan n Salwar, was tall, strong built, small moustache and khaskhasi beard. All in all looked like an Iranian mir. These were in the form of a homage on the heart rending tragedies of Chamkaur and Sirhind. Ganj-a-Shaheedan appeared in the year 1913 and both appeared collectively from Lahore in the year 1915. The valour displayed by the young sons of Guru Gobind Singh has been sympathetically and vividly narrated in the poems of a devout Muslim, Allah Yaar Khan. The cruelty of their murder and their fearlcssness of death which they preferred to giving up their faith finds a touching narration in "GarijiShahTdari" an Urdu poem by a Muslim poet, Allah Yaar Khan Jogi, who used to recite it from Sikh platforms during the second and third decades of the twentieth century.
Allah Yaar Khan just loved Guru Ji and with love wrote so much about Guru Ji that Muslims became very jealous and kicked him out. He was called “kafir” by Muslims and Muslims did not let him enter Mosque for 30 years.
When he got old, Qazi went to his house and says to him, “Jogia, come with me and ask for forgiveness. You have grown old and die as a true Muslim.” Allah Yaar Khan said, “I have done nothing wrong. What I wrote about Guru Ji is the truth and I will not go back.” Hearing this Qazi gets mad and says, “Then you wanna die as a kafir?” Yaar khan says, “I am kafir from Mohammad but not for Guru Gobind Singh Ji. I see Guru Ji sitting in Bahishat (heaven) with open arms and waiting for me. I want His love and want to die as Guru Ji’s servant.” Qazi left and Allah Yaar Khan died remembering Guru Ji every moment of his life.
