Momin Khan Momin

Momin Khan (b. 1800 - d. 1851) was an Indian poet famous for his Urdu ghazals and used "Momin" as his takhallus (the Urdu word for nom de plume). He was born in Delhi. He was also called "Hakeem Momin Khan" because he was a physician also. Hakeem is an Urdu word for physician.
Momin is known for his particular persianized style and the beautiful use of his takhllus. According to legend, Mirza Ghalib (his contemporary and also a rival) offered Momin his entire diwan (collection of poetry) in exchange for a partcular verse of Momin. The couplet in question was: Tum mere paas hote ho goya/ Jab koi doosra nahin hota.
