Thank you for visiting the Ibne Safi Website.

This presentation is a sincere fanís humble tribute to the great writer. This website could not have been completed without information from the first official Ibne Safi website (www.ibnesafi.com), created in 1997 by the authorís son, Ahmad Safi.

Please bear in mind that this is not a commercial website, and all the information provided here is on a voluntary basis. Please email me if you feel any pertinent information is missing from the pages. Please also share any relevant information, documents, articles, and other items that you believe will add to the value of this project. As fans of Ibne Safi, we owe him as much.

I would like to thank the following for the material utilized for this website:

I would like to take this opportunity to make few appeals. I request Radio Pakistan to provide me with audiotapes of Ibne Safiís interviews and plays.

I also appeal to Pakistan Television Corporation for providing me with recordings of Doctor Duaago, Zia Mohyuddin Show, Kasoti and Aap Janab in which Ibne Safi participated.

Thank you for taking the time to peruse these pages.
