Scholars have done PhD on his life and services. Who Jo Shairi Ka Sabab Huwa is one of his remarkable works. The recent book is a collection of different literary write-ups by the poet litterateurs and critics which has been compiled by Prof. Muhsin Usmani, who is author of more than a dozen books and presently associated with the Department of Arabic, Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages, Hyderabad.
