FAQ

What is Faiz-e-Zabaan?
Faiz-e-Zabaan is a non-profit organisation for the promotion of the Urdu language and literature. At present Faiz-e-Zabaan is working on a project called “Shabnaama”, which aims to create a comprehensive database of all news, articles and events published on-line in media concerning the Urdu language and literature.

Why is Faiz-e-Zabaan in English?
Many Urdu speaking people have been educated in English medium schools in which only Urdu has been taught in Urdu. In this sense, paradoxically, Urdu for Urdu speaking people has almost become a foreign language. Faiz-e-Zabaan may eventually encourage an interest in Urdu language and literature among people who are habituated with English more than Urdu.

Who owns Faiz-e-Zabaan?
The project and its website is owned and maintained by “Faiz-e-Zabaan Foundation”. The project is founded and managed by Ray Alif. The items catalogued in full are for non-profit educational purpose only. Faiz-e-Zabaan neither claims the ownership nor the authorship of the catalogued items.
