Dua Shayari

There are many words in Urdu poetry that have been treated in entirely different ways and contexts to create unusual kinds of meaning. A number of such words can be found in the domain of faith. Dua, or prayer, is one such word that has been used quite creatively and in multiple contexts. Here, you would find a lover praying for union and his prayers returned unanswered. Sometimes, being disappointed, he even prays for his release from love that brings only suffering. This and many other conditions of this kind can be found in this selection for the curious readers.
