The tradtition of "Urdu Tadveen e Matn" has its roots in the rich and flourishing history of Tadveen in Arabic and Persian. In Particular it drives its principals and rules from the Tadveen of Quran and Hadees. However it got its founding from English sources also. Urdu Tadveen e Matn started from the beginning of 20th Century. Hafiz Mehmood Shirani was its first proponent. Then it spread throughout India to different centres of learning. Dr. Azmat Rubab in her dissertation points out such 12 centers of Tadveen e Matn throughout the length and breadth of India and Pakistan. Prominent among these are Deccan, Lahore, Delhi, Karachi, and Raam Pur etc. where learned scholars carried out Tadveen of important manuscripts and texts. One such center is Deccan where scholars tried to preserve the manuscripts of these old poets and writers who belonged to Deccan. One of the great early poets of Deccan was Sultan Muhammad Quli Qutab Shah. He wrote a large variety of verses. First scholar to edit his Kuliyat was Dr. Mohi Ud Deen Qadri Zor. Later on, after some 40 years, Dr. Syyada Jafer again edited His Kuliyat. Both these works are of great value. Here Dr. Azmat Rubab compares the two efforts of the scholars and brings out the identities and differences between the two compilations.
