Sharar was a social activist, a political theorist and made some remarkably accurate predictions about the future of his people in India and Pakistan. Unfortunately, however, I am afraid that these attributes of his insightful personality will not be remembered for long. This is a pity. However, what cannot be easily forgotten, even in centuries to come is his great poetic gift and the voluminous poetry he has written and published during his lifetime.
Sharar's great literary achievement is not the amount of poetry he has produced, though it is no meagre feat in itself, but the unique ways in which he has kneaded Biblical and Christian theological phraseology in novel poetical renditions. He is a towering master of inventing original metaphors, similes and personifications using Biblical references. Throughout his voluminous work reader can find one enduring theme and that is his unwavering devotion to the cross of his Lord Jesus Christ and his uncompromising love for his chosen beloved, the Christian Church.
This truly great scholar, and an irreplaceable son of the Asian Christian community, slept in the Lord on 28th December 1999, and is buried in Luton, UK.
