Allamah Nasir al-Nasir Hunzai

Allamah Nasir al-Nasir Hunzai

Allamah Nasir al-Din Nasir Nasir Hunzai is the author of over a hundred books related to the esoteric interpretation of the Holy Qur'an. He writes both prose as well as poetry. He is the first person to have a Diwan of poetry in Burushaski, his mother tongue, and is known as "Baba-i Burushaski" (Father of Burushaski) for his services to that language. He also composes poetry in three other languages: Urdu, Persian and Turkish. His contribution to spiritual science is widely recognised. He is the co-author of a German-Burushaski dictionary published by Heidelberg University, Germany and "Hunza Proverbs" published by Calgary University of Canada. He is a recipient of "Sitarah-i Imtiyaz" awarded by the Government of Pakistan for his contribution to literature


"Allamah Nasir al-Din Nasir Hunzai's Great Contribution to Esoteric Knowledge"

A Brief Statistical Survey of His Works:

Suwakuse har durowar mii ruwe chindak gumanis

Surmanas mii numa une gaybe gurin cum dumanis

“(O our Mawla,) be our soul’s support in every good deed May we initiate the work but its completion be by your invisible hands.”

Nasire isqe kitab aalamar pharees meymi
Saroose gaybe jahaan cum khabar suwai le saboor

“The book of Nasir love will spread all over the globe, the good news was brought only yesterday from the invisible world by a messenger angels.”

Undoubtedly, his work of poetry and prose are the countless universes of esoteric knowledge. His writing, lectures on spirituality and supplications have created such an enormous treasure that it is impossible for an individual to have even a cursory glance at it in his entire life, let alone understand it duly. Notwithstanding this, an attempt will be made to present here a statistical survey of the pages and words, both poetry and prose in order to express profound gratitude for his bounties of esoteric teachings.

He uses his potent pen to praise the imam of the time and the expresses his gratitude’s for his bounties and favors likes pir nasir –I khusraw, the hujjat of khurasan. Pir Nasir expressing his gratitude to the imam of the time for spiritual and antellectual bounties writes in his Diwan:

Har ja ki buwam ta biziyam man gah-u bigan
Bar shukar-I tu ranam qalam-u mihbar-u daftar

Wherever and however long I live,
I shell always use my pen, ink-pot and paper in your praise

In the same way, our revered teacher writes:

Ine jaa qalamar qaw eti ke es yatise gucharchi
eer beski mathan gan bila kuli es bese warchi

“if he (my imam of the time) invites my pen for (his services),
It will walk on its head and will never tier on matter how 
Long the path!”

Prior to the statistical survey, it is necessary to present a brief accounts of the backgrounds of his extraordinary personality in the light of his own works, so that the readers may be able to appreciate his unprecedented feats.

Context of his esoteric writings:

Although he was brown in a family which according to that time was considered learned, because his father Hubb-I ali and grandfather Muhammad rafi were the khalifahs or representatives of their respective pir, the standard of khlifahs knowledge’s was so limited that they were unable to produce any literary work. Therefore, prior to him there is no trace of any religious literature in hunza. For years prior to the birth in 1917,the british colonial government had established the only primary school in the capital of hunza, Baltit. He studied there for ten months during which he completed third and fourth classes and that was measure of his entire secular education ! However by God’s special help, through self-study he advanced in his learning so rapidly that in 1940 he was able to compose a perfect poetry with all its requirements of metre, rhyme’s etc.thus started the journey of his esoteric writings with the epoch-makings ginan,which he,with the imam of time,mawalana sultan Muhammad shah (fadahuarwahuna).this poem was the first of its kind in the burushaski it he say:

Haazir imaame ishqe phuwan jaa asar balii
Haazir imam jaa gale malyam jaa asar mili

The fire of hazir imam’s love is kindled in my heart,
Hazir Imam is the ointment for my wound,
My heart medicine.

In the same blessed year of 1940, the imam of the time had sent a secred message through the radio that the light of his kindness and love would reach the entire jamat of hunza like the sun. the above ginan was indeed evidence of the imam lights reaching the jamat of hunza, because thereafter the light of esoteric knowledge began to spread rapidly in this area, culminating in the foam of the personal resurrection of revered teacher in 1951. 1940 was the beginning of his spiritual progress in which he began to advance along its important stages. Among these, 1946 the year of the diamond jubilee of the imam is extremely important ,because it was during his year that he was blessed with the didar of the imam of the time in Poona, India during which the experienced the spiritual zalzalah (quake).subsequently he also received the ism-azam from the exalted imam in hasanabad ziyarat, Bombay. He also started to composes poetry in urdu and wrote a moving poem in praise of the Qa’im of the time, entitled “the colorful, flourishing and pleasing memories of the diamond jubilee (1946)”, the exordium of which is:

Jis ghari shah ali jinab-I maydan aya
Mara dil khene laga dekh kih janan aya

The moment shah Ali entered the stadium
My heart said: look the beloved has arrived!

He continued to pass through great spiritual stages. In 1948, in Kharadhar Jam’at-Khnah, he experienced the first Light. In 1949 he had the golden opportunity to go to China in connection with the construction of Jama’at-Khanahs and schools for Ismaili Community there. In Sariqul, China he observed his symbolic sacrifice in a luminous dream, which was the glad tiding of his practical or great sacrifice ( zibbin azim) during his personal resurrection. In 1951, as mentioned above, he underwent the personal resurrection and obtained the everlasting wealth of knowledge and recognition with which he returned to Hunza 1954. The noble work of expressing this knowledge of resurrection in the form of prose and poetry continues to date. He established the Ismailia Darul-Hikmat on 2nd June, 1963 to facilitate this work, about which Mawlana Hazir Imam Shah Karim al-Husayni in a taliqah dated 4th October, 1966 says:
“…I have read the report of Ismailia Darul Hikmat
With much interest and pleasure.
I am very happy indeed with your good work
And devoted services, and I gave my most affectionate
Paternal maternal loving blessings to all the members
Of the Ismailia Darul Hikmat for their services.”
Regarding the paramount importance of his poetry, itmore than suffices to say that Mawlana Hazir Imam Shah Karim al-Husayni in a taliqah dated 9th October, 1961 has graciously accorded it the status of ginan, which only a Pir can write. The Imam has said;

“I am very happy to know that you have completed the Ginan Book in Hunza Language.”

Further, about all his works Mawlana Hazir Imam Shah Karim al-Husayni gave the following guidance in 2001 during a special mulaqat in London as mentioned in a letter addressed to him by Vasier Shafiq Sachedina on 16th Agusut, 2004:

“You will recall that Mawlana Hazar Imam was very keen that ways and means should be found whereby your learning and scholarship can receive a wider jamati exposure through collaboration with the Insitute.”

Here it should also he mentioned that he, in addition to his spiritual discoveries has also rejected many theories of secular scientists, such as the composition of the sun, the gravity of the earth, etc.
