Shah Jo Risalo شاه جو رسالو - compiled by Allama I.I. Kazi
Published by Sindhi Adabi Board Jamshoro (Pakistan) in 1993
Shah Jo Risalo (شاه جو رسالو) is the most celebrated poetic work in the Sindhi language. A collection of short verses, it comprises of allegorical Sufi poetry that is highly ecstatic and full of divine love. It was verbally quoted from the most famous Sindhi Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, collected by his followers in the form of a Risalo or Divan. This version is based on the less known but more authentic edition by Allama I. I. Kazi, the person with immense knowledge of Shah’s biography and poetry.
This version of Shah Jo Risalo is unique as the order of Sur's (chapters) is kept according to the spiritual growth of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai. It tries to follow the spiritual journey of Shah throughout his life time. The Sur Sohni is given as the last Sur, as the compiler believes Shah had said the poetry in this Sur in the last years of his life.
