THE MAN:
Ibne Safi (1928-1980) is a well known Pakistani writer of mystery and detective novels. He wrote more than two hundred fifty novels. His two popular series of books were Imran Series and Jasoosi Duniya. His works were translated from Urdu into most of the Indian languages. The list of his heroes include the famous names such as: Colonel Ahmad Kamal Faridi, Captain Sajid Hameed, Ali Imran (chief of Secret Service as X2,) Crime Reporters Anwar and Rasheeda, Qasim, Safdar, Juliana Fitzwater, Joseph Magonda, Sulaiman, Roashee etc. His villains include: Sing Hee, Thresea Bumble Bee of Bohemia, Nanota, Finch, Dr. Dread, Tisdle, Humbug the Great, Bogha (Bora), McLawrence and many others.

THE CHALLENGE:
Ibne Safi started writing detective stories as a challenge. It was late 40's in India before independence. A few young men got together and decided to publish a literary magazine from Allahabad. Among these were Asrar Ahmed, Jamal Rizvi, Abbas Hussaini and Mujavir Hussain Rizvi.

At that time all the mystery and detective stories in Urdu and Hindi were coming directly through translations of western novels and magazines. Unfortunately third rate, sexually explicit and provocative material also found its way into Urdu through these translations. A popular belief was that mystery or crime stories could not be successful in Urdu without the element of sex in them. Asrar Ahmed differed in opinion. To him the soundness of plot and the grip of the writer over it, the style of narration and the use of language were all that was required to capture readers' attention. To prove his point he took up writing mysteries.

THE PUBLICATIONS:
These friends later came up with the first issue of a magazine called NAKHAT, the first edition of which was sold out within one day. Asrar Ahmed took the pen name of Ibne Safi, as he wanted to make the creator of my stories a mystery too.

In that group of friends Jamal Rizvi later became famous as Shakeel Jamali and Mujavir Rizvi turned Ibne Saeed. Both were prolific writers of popular romantic stories. They were later joined by famous names such as Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza, Ilyas Ishqui, and Mustafa Zaidi (then known as Taigh Allahabadi.) Abbas Hussaini took up the rate of financier and publisher.

Nakhat magazine later branched out into three series: Tilismi Duniya (realm of sorcery,) Jasoosi Duniya (realm of detection) and Roomani Duniya (realm of romance.)

THE TRANSFORMATION:
In the beginning Asrar Ahmed wrote poetry and satire under the pen names of Asrar Narvi, Sanki Soldier and Tughral Farghan etc. But as the time passed the pseudonym Ibne Safi took over all the other pen names and Ibne Safi spent most of his time writing detective stories.

Jasoosi Duniya and later after independence, Imran Series were the major series he published regularly. A feat that ended only with his death in 1980. His novels are still in print and available.

THE SETTING:
The setting in Ibne Safi's novels is such that he never tells his readers the name of the country his heroes are from. Since Jasoosi Duniya came into being before the independence of Subcontinent, the names of the persons and places suggest it to be set up in India. Imran Series is a later advent and characters and places seem to be setup in Pakistan.

Besides their native countries, the main characters of both Jasoosi Duniya and Imran Series have had adventures around the world in Spain, Italy, England, Scotland, Pacific Islands, Zanzibar, South Africa, the United States of America and many such places. The detailed descriptions of these places are surprisingly accurate considering Ibne Safi never left Pakistan after migrating from India after independence.

The fictitious lands in his stories have become real in the minds of his fans and everyone seem to be an expert on the people and cultures of Shakraal, Karaghaal, Maqlaaq, Zero Land and many such places.

In cities around India and Pakistan one can find discotiques, bars, night clubs and hotels etc., named after such venues found in Ibne Safi's novels. Some of the places worth mentioning are: Dilkusha, Fizaro, Niagara, Tip Top, High Circle, etc.

Jasoosi Dunya main baishaq inn ka naam boht zaida Aahim hain bal k inhain Urdu Adab main Jasoosi Adab ka Baani qaraar dya jaie tu bai ja na hu ga , or bilkul theek baat hai k inhune apne challenge ko poora kar dikhaya ,,,,,,,,

inn ka sub se bara wasf tu yeh hai k Imran or COln Faridi jo k hero hain donon Mutazad shakhsiyat k Malik hain , agar hum sirf Imran ko parhaien tu lagta hai k Ibn -e-Safi ka shayd yahi aik tarzay tahreer hai leken Faridi ko daikh kar apne raei se hi inhiraaf karna parta hai ,,,,,

Imran Jolly Faridi utna hi Sanjeeda,,,,,,,,

Imran dushman ko dhuka dai kar maarta hai or Faridi saamne hi challange karta hai

Faridi ki QUATAY BARDASHT KAABILAY RASHK hai woh banda agr 3 , 4 ratain na bhi soie tu os se os ki himmat , istikamat par koi farq nahi parta ,,,,, Faridi woh shkahs hai Jo scientist bhi hai tu shikaari bhi ,,,,,, kitne hi Saanp , Kuttay os k hukkm k tabay hain........

leken Faridi jo international shuhrat ka haamil hai woh kissi dushman se nahi darta leken Capt Hameed ki batain osay zich kar daiti hain :)

Hameed bhi aik boht pyaara kirdaar hai jolly sa kahin kahin Imran ki jhalak dikhaei daiti hai..............


Mera dawa hai k jo Ibn-e-Safi ko sirf aik baar parh lai tu os ko chorne ka tassawur bhi nahi kar sakta ,,,,

Ibn-e-Safi ki boht se logon ne Naqqal ki , unn k tarzay tahreer ko apnaya ,,,,,, chalo bhi aap ne Imran jo k jeeta jaagta kirdaar hai chura lya tu chura lya , hadd tu yeh hai k Ibn-e-Safi Sahab ki waldiat bhi churaali ,,,,,,,, jis main N Safi wagaira numaya hai ,,,,,,,,,

No Doubt k inhune bhi is kirdaar se boht insaaf kya leken mera khayal hai yeh boht Na insaafi hai Ibn-e-Safi k saath ,,,,,,,,,,,

baharal inhune Imran or Faridi ko jis tarhan paish kya hai , or jis tassalsul se yeh likhte rahay Writer se tu huta hi hai lagaao , Imran or Faridi se bhi boht unsiat hai ,,,,,,or shayad hamesha rahay giiiiiiiiiii



aap ki post boht boht zabardust hai ,,,,,,,,,, itni achi post karne pay meri taraf se Mubarak baad :SmileFlowers:

arey sis thanks but app ki post mujh se zayada achi hai. app ko fredi jitna pasand andaza hota hai. :)

wase mujhye sub he pasand hain. Ali imran se attechment iss liye zayada k us ko bohat parha hai but jab imran fredi series ho tu fredi imran ka peer wo murshad hai iss mai koi shak nahi.

wase jolly kirdaar mai mujhye Qasim zayada pasand hai.
Khala jad
bohat maze ka hai.

aur app ki baat darust hai k ibn-e-safi k kirdaar churnye walye insaaf naa kar sakye. waqi mazhar kaleem k starting novals bohat zabarsadt hain. but abb tu aonho ne imran ko boring bana dala hai. par mazhar kaleem k kheer wo sher par mabni novals kamal k hain. waqi imaan taza ho jata hai. aur pata chalta hai k kase choti se largish hum ko jaham se qareeb kar deti hai.
ibn-e- safi ko mai ne zayada nahi parha serf nay ufaq mai end par inn ki imran series ate wohi parhye. abb tu wo bhi nahi aty.

magr ibn-e-safi ka aik noval jo mery pass aj bhi hai mai ne 10 bar parha her bar parh kar aik new baat pata chali.

:) thanks 4 liking da post

sis freedi ko alone nahi parha but iss ka ye matlab nahi k mujhye feedi k bary mai pata nahi. in mazhar kaleem novals imran hameesha freedi ko peer o murshad kahta hai.

ahem ahem sharm :-" daal mai kala ya kali daal?
wase aik maze ki baat bataon.
jo imran k fans mostly girls hai tu mazhar kaleem k noval parhnye wali girls wo sub imran ko bro k tur par leti hain. mujhye mazhar kaleem ki ye khoobi lagi hai k us ne sub se shrab churwa de,even Joseph se bhi.

aur girls se doooooooooooor bhagty hain.
issi liye wo kheer wo sher par mabni novals likh saka.
mazhar kaleem k kheer wo sher k novals
Black World, Tataar, jinati duniya, rohani duniya aur bhi kafi hain. app parhna zaroor.

coz ye waqi ase novals hai jin ko parhnye se kam az kam mai ne tu 5 times namaz start kar de thi :P
lolzz

jase halki se zuban ki largish....... imran aik case almost slove kar deta hai bus end par kahta hai shukar jaan chuti. bus ye words ki waja se us par aik shyetani zaryaat qabo pa leti hai. but khair Allah ki madad shamil-e-haal hoti hai tu wo nikal ata hai.

aur iss ki misaal imran ki ama Bi k ruhani buzurg yun dety hain k jab hum shyetan k khilaf larty hain tu iss ki misaal ase hai k aik zeeman par chal raha ho aur dosra tani huwi rasi par. chal tu dono rahye hain but rani huwi rasi par chalnye walay ki zara se largish us ko zameen par gira de gi.

ufffffff kafi khuch hai sharing ko but topic ko long nahi karty after all ibn e safi ki post hai :P

takecare
fiamanAllah.

Asslam o Alaikum,
Fareedi Hameed Qasim are best.
Ap ko pata ho ga k Ibn e Safi Sb ne Pehly Fareedi Hameed par Novel Likha or 1950 se B pehly Likha Fareedi Hameed par. agar ap ne Pehla Novel Parha ho to. Us k kaaafi arsay bad Ibn e Safi ne Imran Par likhna Start kia. is k elaawa Fareedi Hameed ki Jasoosi Duniya k Novel ki tadaad 125 hay jab k Imran Series ki tadaat 120 hay. is se andaza laga len k Ibn e Safi Fareedi par Zayada Likhty they, but aj kal Mazhar Kaleem Fareedi ko takreeban Bhool gaey hen.
Fareedi Hameed par zulf ho raha hay. ek to Imran Series men in ko shaamil kar lia hay 2nd baat yeh k in par bohat kam likha jaa raha hay. Plz Plz Plz mer request hay Zaheer Ahmed Sb se or Mazhar Kaleem sb se k Fareedi Hameed par Likhen, Qasim par likhen. Waaqai Fareedi Peer o Murshad hay Imran ka. Imran ka senior hay. or Zabardast character hay. Hameed B imran se senior hay. bas meri guzarish sun Ley Writers. Meray bas men hota to men khud likhta Fareedi Hameed par.. Imran b Bohat he acha character hay but Fareedi Hameed ki tarha nai. Thanks. Syed Fahda. Allah Hfz

Fareedi Peer o Murshid hay Imran ka. Yeh baat theek hay k Fareedi Peer o Murshad Hay Imran ka, but Fareedi par kuch Likha jaaey. Mazhar Kaleem sb aksar Fareedi ko Imran k samny zich (neecha) kar daity hen. Imran koi baat karta hay to Fareedi Kehkaha mar k hansta hay. Hameed ko baaten sunata hay Imran. jab k Hameed ek zabardast character hay. Hona yeh chaheya k Fareedi baat kary or Imran Kehkaha mar k hans pary. Mazhar Kaleem sab se request hay or Zaheer Ahmed sb se k yeh donon bohat he acha Likhty hen. bas requst hay k Seniors ko tarjeeh dee jaay. Fareedi bohat Senior hay Imran se, or Hameed B bohat senior hay Imran se.
Fareedi Imran ka Peer or Murshad hay g, ok Fareedi Peer or Murshad hai Imran ka
Thanks Allah Hafiz
