It’s good, they died—–
If they lived, what would they see?
—burning hunger?
—rising poverty?
—homicide everywhere?
–putrefying dead bodies?
dignity and pride being disgraced?
It’s good they died!
If, lived, what would they see?
Immoral and callous conduct
helplessness and despair
inhumanity, hurting humanity
corruption and agitating?
Blessed, not seeing, this
It’s good, they died
If, lived, what would they see?

 The one———-

Who had come there,

 To bestow upon me,

All that he had, —-but

As the earthquake shocked,

He swindling me,

Stole the treasures I had,

My piety, pride, vanity, dignity

 Looting all,  he left———–

Let’s go ——–

Let’s see the snow,

And see——–

The slates being smashed;

Let’s go———

Take a fearless walk 

Take a leisure walk,

Look,  the rising and setting Sun;

Let’s go to the region now,

Where there’s no

 Epidemic now;

No horrible smell,

No moan,

No groan;

Let’s go like we did in 2004;

To wander in the region,

 To take deep breaths;


Let’s go and see again,

Snowflakes on Poplar

And Pine Trees;

Flowing rivers,

Flowing lagoons;

Let’s go——-!

What to be scared of now,

Everything is frozen,

And frozen things

You know;

Neither perishes

Nor decay,

Nor they emit stink——-



Many famous and distinguished personalities have commented on his outclass poetry, prose and paintings. Below are the names and their comments about Noor Muhammad Qureshi

Moti Lalwani (artist): “Carrara was the quarry for Michelangelo Water color wash is cararra for Noor. Noor means light and light means life. Life, that dwells in Noor’s art pieces. Art pieces which have been grown in the womb of time.

Calm—–cool—— peace—— silence—- solitude and joy simple landscapes—- or even water color washes.”

Sumeha Malik: “An ambitious artist and one who has made a niche for himself despite artists coming up every other day. We hope that there will be more such thought provoking series from Noor.”

Vali Haider Zakir (artist): “The destructive earthquake of 2005   affected everyone severely. Noor expressed his feelings through his art and receptive poetry.”

Professor Muhammad Raees Alvi (Registrar, Karachi University): “Noor Muhammad has depicted the melancholy of violent earthquake of 2005 in his art and poetry with brush and pen that every eye shed tears. May he live long to portray the life.”

Nahid Raza, artist and Principal, Central Institute of Arts and Crafts, Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi:” Nor Muhammad Qureshi is based in Sind. He is teaching Art in Baluchistan. He works in multi-dimensions like poetry, Afsana, and Painting. Landscape and Calligraphy are basic subjects in his work. I wish he should paint these victims of earthquake as he wrote in his poetry.”

Fatima Surriyya Bajya, (writer): “one day in burning month of June when I came back from my  office I saw a man standing under a tree   near my home.  He was Noor Muhammad Qureshi. He handed a thin book and some cuttings of newspapers. We came inside my home. He wanted my review and comments on his thin book. But when I read it, I felt its colossal weight. It is heavier than tons of mountains and immeasurable for the human feeling of grief and misery.  Each and every page of the booklet is worth ready. It is full of emotions, knowledge and awareness.”

Nusrat Nasarullah: Mr. Noor Muhammad, 42 , teaches Art in Sui Model School, Dera Bugti Baluchistan. He paints, writes Urdu poetry, and acts in radio, stage and television plays. Noor Muhammad is tall, mild mannered and hardworking, so far held four solo exhibitions, including on the tsunami theme.

Dr. Ilyas Ishqui has same praise worthy feelings for Noor.

Qasim Jalali (GM, Pakistan Television, Karachi centre) “Noor Muhammad has given life to his dreams and observation in life through his poetry and paintings.”

Saif-ur-Rehman (Vice President, Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi) “Noor Muhammad has very delicately expressed the pains of affected in with his brush and pen. His book is a historical, pictorial evidence of the earthquake of 2005”

Tajdar Aadil, (poet, author, and producer Pakistan television) “I am waiting to see how many hearts throb and step forward to lend helping hand to the ailing, now and always when needed.”

Wasi Haider, (artist, critic) “Noor Muhammad is a very sensitive man having a kind warm heart that feels the other’s pain just like his own. He is been successful in transferring his emotions though his art and literature.”

Ziauddin. A. Junejo “ the awesome power of the forces of nature which was unleashed against human civilization in which human beings were powerless has been depicted by the artist in paintings with great insight and accuracy.

Mr. Noor’s use of symbols is very significant. I am reminded of the Surrealist Masters such as Dali Gigantic tears painted by the Artist tragedy conveyed by these paintings.”

Professor Ali Ahmed Fatimi, (Allahabad University, India) “Noor Muhammad is a humane human. His restless soul and friendly nature motivated him to use his brush and pen to show to the world the agony of life.”

Syed Anwar Haider, (Sr. Member of Revenue Sind) “Noor Muhammad used very simple language to express his feelings in poetry and prose. Noor is a great human being who is treading on the highway of life with his aching heart for his fellow beings in pain.”

Naqash Kazmi (Poet) Noor Muhammad is multifaceted man. He has exposed and shook the hearts of us all to feel the bleeding humanity through his paintings and   writings.”

Yawer Mehdi retd (Station Director Radio Pakistan Hon. Secretary of Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi) Noor Muhammad has not only added treasure to Urdu literature he has fulfilled the needs of human sentiments.”

Professor Hassan Abid (Scholar) “basically Noor Muhammad is an artist but he has excelled his abilities equally in other forms of expression like poetry and prose besides paintings. I am sure his book will gain laurels.”

Iqbal Haider (Chairman Josh Academy Gallery, Canada) “In my opinion a true artist is one who feels the pangs of others just like his own. His simple easy languages leave a stirring impact on a reader. I am witness of his genuineness for I know him for more than a quarter of a century. I wish him long healthy life.”

His message is,

Love is the whole thing,
We are only pieces,
Love is the sea of no end,
We are a drop of it.


Remember, I miss you when———

The Poplar blooms

The Pine blubbers

The Cyprus whimper

Remember, I miss you

The Moon shines

The spring trickles

The Jasmine emits fragrance

 Remember, I miss you!

The Partridge whines

 The Cherries ripened

The sparrows tweet

Remember, I miss you!

 The Ravi wobbles

The Chenab grouches

The Sutlej is jittery

Remember, I miss you!

The Shoots sprout

The Cuckoo coos

The Lightening cracks

Remember, I miss you!

 The Sun sets,

The Star dies

The Traveler is misled

Remember, I miss you!

 The Clouds holler

The Rains slobber

The Hearts clobber

Remember, I miss you!

 rains slobber



Those who watch from beyond,

How can they be aware of?

What the earth has gone through;

Those who live on the earth

Can’t share;   woe they gone through

Between day and yesterday;

The ones living today

Can only realize,

The strength of earthquake

Town’s shards, friends’ parting;

Those who watch from beyond

How can they be aware of?

How bad smell emits,

From the mutilated corpses;

How can children sleep with no roof?

What the anguish of hunger is;

Why a child is grumpy,

Slipping away, from a lap?

Those who watch from beyond,

How can they be aware of?

 Of someone’s, all buried alive,

How does he hang around?

earthquake 2005  


The roof I’m standing on,

Flowers used to study below

The fragrance of those flowers 

 Cherished that milieu!

The bad smell which you think is

The martyrs’ blissful odor!

When God wishes to call

His dear ones;

He opts and selects, like the

School children, buried in earthquake 

8th October earthquake 2005
