Abstract

Annemarie Schimmel (1922 - 2003) was a German orientalist, mystic, Islamic scholar, and Orientalist. She was particularly interested in Islam and the Near East. Within the context of Islamic civilization, there are numerous books in various languages. Schimmel was influenced by the ideas and theories of Iqbal. She translated and wrote about Bang.e.dara, Payam.e.mashriq, and Javed Nama in the German language. In addition, Schimmel was an influential orientalist and most eminent scholar of Ghalibiat. A Dance of Sparks is a very significant contribution to the field of Ghalibiat due to its theme, contents, and study of fire imagery in Mirza Ghalib's poetry. Schimmel, in this book, has translated several verses from Ghlib's Urdu and Persian poetry. In this article writer has evaluated the Urdu renderings’ for as the quality of these translations is concerned, is not a good example. Schimmel failed to transmit the faithful and true impact of Ghalib’s poetry.
