He was born in 1923 in Koya. He completed his primary and secondary education in his hometown in 1941. He went to Baghdad and was admitted to the primary teachers' college. In the autumn of 1944, he became an educator and took a national leftist path, which led to him being persecuted many times for it.
While working as a teacher in Qaladze, he joined the Kurdish liberation movement in Iranian Kurdistan in 1945. In early 1946, he moved to Mahabad and participated in the establishment of the Kurdistan Democratic Republic on 22-01-1946 under the leadership of Peshawar Qazi Mohammad. He started working as a teacher in the new Republic on 11-02-1946.
When the Kurdish political experiment failed and the republic collapsed on 17-12-1946, Wardi returned to Koya in 1947 and remained unemployed. He joined the Iraqi Communist Party-Kurdistan Organization and became active politically. After the revolution of 14-07-1958, he returned to work and served the new generation as an educator until his death.
Wardi was a talented Kurdish folklorist. Although he loved his nation's national culture from the beginning of his literary career, he did not become an expert folklorist until he went to the Kurdistan Democratic Republic and learned to read Latin and Slavic folklore. During his literary career, he published 39 books in Kurdish and Arabic, most of which are about Kurdish poems, folklore, and stories:
1. Hassan and Maryam, published in 1955
