    Shakeeb Jalali (Urdu: شکیب جلالی‎) (October 1, 1934 – November 12, 1966) was a Pakistani Urdu poet.
    Shakeb Jalali's real name was Syed Hassan Rizvi. His ancestors were from a small town, Saddat Jalali, near Aligarh, India. In accordance with the well-known poet, writer and authentic critic Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi, Shakeb was said to be born on October 1, 1934, but his wife Syeda Mohiddisa Khatoon gives his year of birth as 1935 or 1936.
    Shakeb was an only child. When he was ten years old, his mother died in an accident. This unexpected incident and suspension from his job due to Hindu Muslim conflict in India totally disturbed his father and died a little before the death of Shakeb Jalali. He passed his Matriculation Examination from Badayun (Uttar Pradesh) and then moved along with his sisters to Rawalpindi. He passed Intermediate Examination from Rawalpindi and B.A. Examination from Sialkot.
    He arranged publication of different urdu magazines, worked in many literary magazines and later moved to Lahore. Owing to economical crises, Shakeb joined Thal Development Authority and was posted at Joharabad and Bhakkar. During course of transit he stayed at Sargodha where he committed suicide on railway tracks on November 12, 1966, due to some unexplained psychological disorder. He was married in 1956 and left behind a son Syed Hussain Aqdas Rizvi (Aali) and a daughter Hina Batool.
    His life as a poet began in 1947 (when he was only 15 years old), he gave an entirely different and unique grace to Urdu Ghazals. His Nazms have a new style; he also tried his hands in Rubai, Qitaat, translation, etc. His poetry work was published after his death: Rooshni Ay Rooshni in 1972 by Maktaba-e-Fanoon and several additions by Mavara Publications and Kuliyat e Shakeb Jalali in 2004 by Sang-e-Meel Publications, Lahore.
    Adeem Hashmi openly acclaims Shakeb's supremacy over the Urdu Ghazal in the '70s and '80s. He humbly accredited Shakeb by saying that his own ghazals were based on the new meter invented by Shakeb. Adeem even though known to blow every other ghazal from even great names for its flaws, was found on every forum recognizing Shakeb.
    Adeem's last book was a tribute to great poets including Iqbal, Meer and Ghalib. He started it with Nasir Kazmi and Shakeb Jalali to keep the chain of appreciation alive and in the book ceremony in 1992, identified Shakeb as his main source of inspiration.
