THEMATIC ANALYSIS OF ATISH’S GHAZAL ‘HAWA-E-DOR-E-MAE KHUSH GAWAR RAH ME HA’
The present study aimed to analyse Khawaja Haider Ali Aatish’s Ghazal ‘Hawa-e-Dor-e-Mai Khushgwar Reh Mai Ha’ to extract Islamic themes by using the thematic analysis method proposed by Clarke and Braun. Thematic analysis is a widely used, yet often misunderstood, method of qualitative data analysis. A close study was done to extract the themes from the ghazal, understudy. Clarke and Braun proposed a six-stepped method to reveal from the texts. An in-depth examination of the verse of ghazal above revealed that Aatish conforms to Allah Almighty’s directives to man intimidating that he should make friends with Allah and seek His help and direction through the verses of the Holy Qur'an and Muhammad's (PBUH)Teachings. Allah never leaves Man in a time of trouble. The direct communion of man with Allah leads to Eternal Success.
