Majaz Lakhnawi (Urdu: مجاز لکھنوی, Hindi: मजाज़ लखनवी), 1909 - 5 December 1955, was a romantic revolutionary poet of India born in Rudauli, Bara Banki. His real name was Asrar ul Haq (Urdu: أسرار الحق, Hindi: असरार-उल-हक़). He composed ghazals and nazms in Urdu. He is also famous for his composition of the anthem (tarana) of Aligarh Muslim University. A heavy drinking alcoholic shayar, he died a lonely death in Lucknow.
