This article discusses the introduction of the Arabic poetry and Fazl-ul-Haq Al-Khair Abadi’s personality in which manifestation of religious intertextuality had been explicitly used in his poetry. He was born 1797 in Khair Abad village of subcontinent. His dewan is the collection of 3373 verses. This dewan is a true reflection of his feelings as he experienced them. Fazl-ul-Haq Al-khairAbadi is one of those great and prominent poets and Islamic scholars of the subcontinent, whose work is an eminent and valuable contribution to Islamic knowledge and Arabic literature.

The Poetry of Arab was revived after its decay in the 19th century. Neo-Classical poets Mahmud Sami Albarudi (1836-1906) and Nasif Alyaziji (1800-1871) recovered classical poetry in the Arab. Rehabilitation of the Arab- Islamic heritage was thought the response to the European culture. Fazl-ul-Haq Al -Khair Abadi (1797 to 1861) revived the classical poetry in the Subcontinent. The poet took part in the Indian war of freedom in 1857 against the British. He was punished by the British rulers and martyred in Andaman in 1861.

The study of a literary text in light of its link to earlier texts, taking into account that the relationship is a multiplicity, is the foundation of the idea of intertextuality or mutual modification between units belonging to different texts to take place in a new text structure; it is a transformation of a collection of previous texts. This positive view of the concept of text strengthened the site of intertextuality in modern studies, which took a positive direction, after removing the view that accompanied him in ancient times of moral character from theft. In this study, I focused on the intertextuality  of the Quran and the sayings of our Prophet in the poetry of Fazl-ul-Haq Al-khairAbadi.
