His contribution to the development of the Ghazal, hitherto little used in India, is particularly significant.

The invention of the Tabla and Sitar is also traditionally attributed to him

Selected verses of Hazrat Amir Khusro;

1-Pathway   to the well is very irregular

How do I make there and fill my pitcher

Though I went there to fill my decanter

Due to nervousness I broke decanter

Khusrau’s in love with Nizaam all in all

My vanity and pride be taken all in all

 

2- Lively mustard blossoming in the field so

Mango buds spring up, other flowers too

The nightingale chants bough to bough

Maiden engaged to beautify self though

Gardener girls bring fragranced flowers

Every one brings in hand lively flowers

At Nizamuddind’s door lay the flowers

He promised to come in love though

It has been years waiting for him

Maiden is busy to beautify self though

2-

 

3- Khusrao! Love’s stream flows in strange way

The one who dives into it finds the right way

3- Khusrau darya prem ka, ulti wa ki dhaar
Jo utra so doob gaya, jo dooba so paar

 

4- I am in you, and you echo me,
as I’m the body, you the soul;

I’m like you and you akin to me

Like one soul in two bodies

Hence in life hereafter

We are one soul in two bodies

 

 

5- I am in you, and you echo me,
as I’m the body, you the soul;

Like two bodies in one soul

So in the life hereafter

I’m not somebody or you someone else

 

5- Mun tu shudam tu mun shudi,mun tun shudam tu jaan shudi
Taakas na guyad baad azeen, mun deegaram tu deegari
