They brought with them the Turko-Persian Culture and Tradition. His ancestors were new converts of Islam thus we find ample of Biblical and Quranic figures in the writings of Ghalib and also a constant preoccupation with the divine and his creations that oscillate between joyful ecstasy and hopeless despair. However in spite of being so much preoccupied with divine and divinity, one finds ambiguity in his belief. A number of lines of his writings show that he has contradictions with the God and for this reason, he has been dubbed as Godless by the Islamic Establishments of his time. Ambiguous Notions of Divinity in the Works of Mirza Ghalib A preoccupation of Divine in his Writings In the letters written by Mirza Ghalib, we find that he uses the conventional way of letter-writing. His Persian letter Danstandownload which throws light on the pitiful condition Delhi and its occupants begins with these words, I begin the book in the name of Lord, who is the Giver of strength, Who is theCreator of the Moon and the Sun and the day and the Night. The lines show his belief in the oneness of God whom he considers being omnipotent.

In the next section, I will discuss his deviations from his religion. His Deviations from the Religion Gambling, drinking and extra-marital relationships are all strictly prohibited in the faith to which Mirza Ghalib belonged. However, Ghalib was a drunkard as well as a gambler and was even arrested for gambling.
He appeared in front of the colonel wearing a Central Asian Turkic style headdress. You Muslim? What he believed was just in his words.
I have ample references to prove it. Mirza Ghalib acknowledges his faith in his religion and also accepts that he does not bring those beliefs into practice. Once, when someone praised the poetry of Sheikh Sahbai in the presence of Ghalib, he reacted at once: How can Sahbai be a poet? He has never tasted wine, nor has he ever gambled; he has not been beaten with slippers by lover, nor has he ever seen the inside of a jail.
Poems- Hunter. In the next section, I will move further by describing Questions to God and ultimately to the existence of God. In a Ghazal, Ghalib says, The angels write and we are seized: What is the justice there?
We too had someone present when they wrote these records. The poet here refers to the maxim of his faith that whenever a person does something wrong the angel that always remains with him writes it down. The poet here raises a rhetorical question by asking God how it is just that only angel has authority to write down his deed.
For Ghalib, if angel presents the sins of man before God then the latter should also have someone to defend him.
The lines show that the poet is obsessed with the justice of God. Another reference to the obsession of poet with the God is found in the following lines: Today we are abased, why so?
Till yesterday You would not brook The insolence the angel showed towards our majesty. In these lines, the poet accuses God of inconsistency in his treatment of mankind. Here the pet refers to the story of Adam.
In the faith to which Mirza Ghalib belonged, it is believed when God created Adam, he commanded all the angels to prostrate him. All the angels at once acted upon it except Iblis Azazeel. According to the poet, God gave such status to the man at that time but did not continue to hold it because today the man particularly he himself is subjected to humiliation.
The poet wants God to give him the reason behind it. This makes him obsessed with God. In this section, we see how much Ghalib seems to be obsessed with God. In the next section, I explain how Ghalib takes a step further by challenging the existence of God. His Questions to the Existence of God I know the truth, but, be that what it will The thought of paradise beguiles me still Heaven in the religion of Mirza Ghalib is the place of prosperity where every good man is said to live for eternity in the endless joy.
He will never be deprived of anything and will be provided everything that he desires for. However the poet, here, does not praise the heaven but rather considers it as a utopian thing. Whether it exists or not, nobody knows. But for him, its thought is good to keep his heart amused. I think that he considers the concept of heaven as merely a fantasy and nothing more.
It is the first attack on his faith. In these lines, the poet says that God existed before the existence of anything, thus if nothing would have existed, God would still be there. But what would have been if God did not create him? In my opinion, he wants to say that God should not have created him and is thus quite displeased with him.
But there is another perspective of analyzing these lines. The focus shifts from divine to humans. Thus this phrase becomes anti-thesis of the first line as it shifts concentration from God to man.
As a consequence a sense of atheism into existence. These lines depict that Mirza Ghalib points out the limitations of the God onlooker.
The poet says that in this world humans are accomplishing their affair and suffering sorrows and pains. Similarly, day and night are also in motion on their own. The Creator seems to be helpless who cannot interfere in the affair of humans.
Thus here again the questions about the existence of God by pointing out his helplessness. According to Ghalib, Named who proclaimed himself to be the God was a tyrant who had no mercy for his subjects. Being a human he was also unable to hear to the prayers of commoners.
In the second line the poet asks whether God is also like Namrud as, like the latter, He cannot listen to and answer the prayers of the poet. Thus the poet puts a direct question on the existence of God and shows his belief in atheism. Thus it can be said that in spite of being a follower of his Faith he showed contradictions to it. Conclusion I have analyzed the works of Mirza Ghalib from different perspectives.
He justifies the existence of God and later rejects it.
He praises to Lord for His bounty but is obsessed with Him as well. Mirza Ghalib is thus a poet of complex nature.
We can say that he was a liberal poet. The Poetry of Ghalib. Biography of Mirza Ghalib. Ghalib, Mirza Asadullah Khan. Shiba Offset Printing Press, Delhi.
