One of the finest exponents of the genre was Mir Babar Ali Anis, who came from a long line of distinguished Urdu poets.In this book one of Aniss best-known marsiyas: Jab qata ki masafat-e-shab aftab ne has been translated in English verse.

The poem presents an account of the events of the 10th day of the month of Muharram, beginning with Hussains preparations for the final battle at Karbala, and culminating in his death and the capture of those who were left of his family.Anis is regarded as one of the finest classical Urdu poets, and it is hoped that this translation goes some way at least in doing justice to his art and poetic skill.-Translators note.
