  1. May Allhah grant him eternal peace and placement in highest levels in janntul firdous. He was legendary poet in his age.

  2. Rahat sahab you will be remembered for ages.
    May Allah bless him with a place in jannatul ferdaus
    Inna lillahe wa inna alaihe rajeoon
    I have met him this year in February when he came to Hyderabad to attend a mushaira . I had a dinner with him sitting next to his table.
    He was a gentle man
    I remember he recited his poetries in four or five mushairas in kingom of Bahrain. I have heard him in three mushairas there
    I remember his first appearance in a mushaira at open auditorium at Patna where he recited.
    HAATH UNSE MILAANA TOH DABA BHI DENA………….
    but he could not impress the audience and was hooted. The reason was that so many big poets were available on the dias and audience wanted to listen to seasoned poets.

  3. Rahat Indori Marhoom will be remembered for ages.
    I have met him in February this year in Hyderabad where he came to attend his last mushaira in Hyderabad . I had a dinner with him sitting next to his table.
    He was a gentle man. Rahat sahab attended four or five mushairas in thekingom of Bahrain , I got opportunity to be in the audience in three of those mushairas.
    First time I remember hearing him in the mushaira at open auditorium in Patna in the year 1978 -79. I think this was his first appearance as a poet in Patna. Where he recited the following ghazal.
    Haath jab usne MILAANA toh daba bhi dena………………………
    but he could not impress the audience and was hooted may be because he was naive and so many seasoned poets were sitting on the dias awaiting their turn to recite their poetries.
    Inna lillahe wa inna alaihe rajeoon. May Allah bless him with jannah.aameen

  4. Dr Rahat Indori sahab was undoubtedly the Brave Ertugrul Bey of Indian Urdu poetry against the fascists.

    ”Sabhi ka khoon shaamil haye iss mitti me; kisi ke baap ka hindostaan thodi hi haye!

    Sabhi ghar aayenge zadd mein; yahaan bas hamaara makaan thodi hi haye! ”

    May Allah grant him Jannatal Firdouse for his Eimaan and Courage to speak boldly against tyranny, what most bearded Moulvis and community leaders lack today!
