Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai (1690 A.D.-1751 A.D.), a poet of eighteenth century Sind (Pakistan), has in recent years been acclaimed as at par with the classical poets of the highest order. This book is a tribute to Shah Latif from his profound admirer Professor D.H. Butani (1913-1989), the distinguished scholar, economist, and social critic. Professor Butani explains what kind of a man Shah was. Shah had two loves -- Allah and music. Allah is the central figure in all his poetry, even where it is concerned with earthly love. The music is so sweet that one craves to listen to Shah Latif's Allah.
