Raaz Chandpuri (1892–1969)[1][2](Urdu: راز چاند پوری‎), born Mohammad Sadiq (Urdu: محمّد صادق‎), was an Urdu ghazal and nazm writer and literary critic. He was amongst the earliest disciples of Seemab Akbarabadi and attained the status of an Ustaad for himself. He was a master of Urooz.[citation needed]

His first known collection of ghazals, Nawa e Raaz, was published in 1961 by Adara Anees of Allahabad. However, he is better known for his critical appraisal of the life and work of Seemab Akbarabadi, Dastaan e chand, on which exercise Mehr Lal Soni Zia Fatehabadi too had relied while writing the biography of Seemab Akbarabadi titled - " Zikr e Seemab ".[3]

Written by Sarwar Alam Raz Sarwar and published by Kitab Ghar,[4] Baqiyaat e Raaz is the only critical appraisal of the life and work of Raaz Chandpuri.
