Mawlānā Abul-Ma'ānī Mīrzā Abdul-Qādir Bēdil (Persian: مولانا ابوالمعانی میرزا عبدالقادر بیدل‎, or Bīdel, بیدل), also known as Bīdel Dehlavī (بیدل دهلوی; 1642–1720), was the greatest poet of Indian-Persian, next to Amir Khusrau, who lived most of life during the reign of Aurangzeb, the sixth Mughal emperor.[1] He was the foremost representative of the later phase of the "Indian style" (sabk-e hendī) of Persian poetry and the most difficult and challenging poet of that school. He is considered the most difficult and challenging poet of Safavid-Mughal poetry.[
