His name is Fathullah and he is known as Kaifi Jawanroyi. Very little is known about his life. Haji Qadir Koyi says about the place of birth and early life of the poet:
In a blind village where Kaifi stays is paradise
Hell is the city of Constantinople when Kaifi is not there anymore.
The name Kuerade here has two meanings: the first is the village where Kaifi was born and lived called Kuerade, the second is a small, desolate and insignificant village.
Kaifi was born in 1814 in the village of Jawanro. For whatever reason, he left his family and his ancestors as a jurist and settled in Koya when he was a boy.
According to Haji Qadir Koyi, Kaifi must have been born in Sharazoor, which is why he became famous in Sharazoor. May be he is truly from Jwanro, the first stage of his migration was from Sharazoor, where he moved to Koya around 1863. Like every foreign jurist, he was a guest of the mosque in order to earn a living and complete his studies.
Kaifi studied with Mullah Abdullah Jali. At that time, a group of mullahs and jurist of the mosque were writing poetry and fighting poetry. Sheikh Reza lived in Koya for a while to study and was a guest of his uncle Sheikh Ghafoor. There is a dispute between Kaifi, Sheikh Reza and those who speak poetry.
The result of this was that Kaifi was humiliated and had nothing left but to leave Koya in 1869 for Istanbul via Erbil, Mosul and Aleppo. There, he met Haji Qadir again.
Kaifi is said to have been in contact with the French embassy in Istanbul and to have mastered the French language.
It is said that Kaifi was not only a poet, but also a craftsman, a master of calligraphy, carpentry, mosaics, graphics and calligraphy.
Kaifi died in 1883 in Istanbul. His grave has not been found yet.
