Newly translated by Naseer Ahmad Khattak and edited by the School of Pashto Studies at the University of Peshawar. The book has forty-nine hitherto unpublished Urdu ghazals written by Shah Ghazi Muhammad Ratan Khan.

Besides the Urdu language, the collection includes a number of previously unpublished Persian poetry fragments. This volume is useful to those who want to know about the poetry of Khushal Khan Khattak.

Although the word "Pashto" doesn't exist in the Pashto language, the name "Pashto" is generally used to refer to the Pashto language, culture, dialects, and literature. "Pashtun" is used to refer to the Pashtun people and ethnic groups of South and Central Asia. Today Pashto is spoken by over 70 million people and the culture is present on every continent. Most of the population speak the Pashto dialect of the Pakistani language. The culture of Pashtuns includes the Pashtun diaspora (also known as Pashtuns outside of Pakistan) which includes people from Afghanistan, India, and other countries.
