Abstract: This paper deals with the Persian ghazals of Divān Singh Khaliq Lāhuri, a little known Sikh poet who problably lived between Punjab and Kashmir during the 12th/18th century. The contribution of the Sikhs to the Persian literature is still an unexplored field: we try here to throw some light on the poetic production of a Sikh who chose to write Persian verse. Khaliq’s poetry is influenced by the mystical (‘erfāni) production of the Perso-Isamic tradition, but it also expresses the author's ties with the Sikh religion. By a stylistic point of view, the ghazals of Khaliq belong to the so-called 'Indian style' of the Persian poetry. An anthology of fifteen translated and transliterated ghazals is given.
