Aab-e-Hayaat (Water of Life)

Anisur Rahman

MORE BYAnisur Rahman

    Aab-e-Hayaat, as the name suggests, stands for the water of life which gives an eternal existence to one who drinks it. Khizr also drank this water and became eternal. That is how he came to be kown as the one who had lived the longest and travelled the most. As such, he became the eternal guide for those who had lost their ways. In Urdu poetry, aab-e-hayaat has various names like aab-e baqaa, aab-e-Khizr, aab-e-haiwaan, zalaal-e-Khizr, zalaal-e baqaa, zalaal-e-zindagani etc.

    Reference: Husn ke Khizr ne kiya labrez/Aab-e-haiwaan se jaam tujh lab ka (Vali Deccani), Ishq mein khoon-e-jigar khaane ki gar lazzat na thi/Khizr ne hairan hoon aab-e-zindagani kyun piya (Ghalib), Khizr se keh do ke aa kar dekh lein aab-e-hayaat/Dhoey jaate hai nichode jaainge gesu-e-dost (Syed Ahmad Hussain Shafiq Lucknowi), Hazaar aab-e-hayaat chhidkein Maseeh aur Khizr donon mil kar/Uthhe na mahshar talak bhi pyare shaheed tere lab-o-dahaan ka (Anonymous).
