Launching ceremony in Karachi Arts Council

Speaking at the launch of a collection of Marsiya writings titled “Nawa-i-Mimbar” by Azmi at the Arts Council of Pakistan on 4 October 2012, Dr Akhtar Hashmi revealed that he had known Azmi since he used to write songs for Radio and Television in Pakistan. Subsequently Azmi switched to Noha writing and soon earned a reputation. Among other speakers of the ceremony the poet Hasan Akbar Kamal said that over 25 years Kalam of Rehan Azmi (poetry of Noha and Marsiya) had reached all corners of the world and were known by heart even by the young.


Shia Muslim Scholar Talib Jauhari offered his comments in poetry book of Dr. Rehan that:

Why do every Noha reader want to recite Noha written by Rehan? How come he fulfills the demand of all Noha reciters. These were questions of my surprise; I got satisfied when I personally saw Rehan begging this literacy treasure from Ali Ibn Abi Talib at his shrine in Najaf. I told him stating that it is your source of prominence in the Urdu language poetry for Prophet Muhammad and his progeny. I admire you too.

Azmi has written a number of Noha books and books of Qasidas.
