Ashfaq Ahmed's works in Urdu literature have won national as well as international acclaim. As a writer and playwright, he was a naturalist and an optimist. His short stories reveal that there is much more to life than misery and woe; there is beauty and loveliness which can be best appreciated when viewed against the background of natural scenery.
All the works were published widely as well as produced on radio and television. His subtle sense of humor is reflected in his long-running radio programmes and characters like 'Talqeen Shah' [The Preacher] while several TV drama series based on his memorable plays of three decades ago are still enjoyed by the audience even today. Their appeal lies in the universal truths of life portrayed in human hopes, emotions, aspirations and relationships that touch the soul of people of all age groups.
Besides his personality as a great author of impressive and laudable books, late Ashfaq Ahmed also had a strong leaning to spiritualism, which is visibly reflected in most of his works.
