This article aims at dispelling misconceptions about Maulvi Hafiz Azizuddin Aziz Alvi Saatsaaz as there was another Maulvi Azizuddin, whose pen-name was also Aziz, who was a calligrapher. The poetic works of both poets have been merged into each other. Saatsaaz is widely known for his title ‘Abur Rija’ and his book Nazmul Wara has his title on it. On the other hand, Azizuddin Khushnavi’s title was Yaqoot Raqam given by Nawab Sadiq Muhammad Khan. His poetry was published on and off in Sadiqul Akhbaar with his title Khushnavis. Saatsaaz was among many poets whose works were rescued from oblivion and began publishing on the state-owned newspaper Saadiqul Akhbaar soon after it came into being. Hafiz Abdul Qudoos Qudsi Saharanpuri was credited with establishing the first literary organization in Bahawalpur State in 1881 and there he published the works of unknown poets of the Bahawalpur state as it had insufficient resources to publish which resulted in curtaining its publishing activities.
