(Bal-e-Jibril-116) Dam-e-Arif Nasim-e-Subah-Dam Hai

Dam-e-Arif Naseem-e-Subahdam Hai
Issi Se Resha-e-Ma’ani Mein Nam Hai

The mysticʹs soul is like the morning breeze:
It freshens and renews lifeʹs inner meaning;

Agar Koi Shoaib Aye Mayassar
Shabani* Se Kaleemi Do Kadam Hai

*Shaban ka matlab Charwaha/Gaderiya

An illumined soul can be a shepherdʹs, who
Could hear the Voice of God at Godʹs command.

  2. Brother,

    Shaban means Charwaha (Shepherd) ya Gaderiya. Hazrat Musa (Moses) A.S. was a shepherd by occupation before he got to the status of Prophethood. So Shabani Ka matlab Hazrat Musa A.S. Ki Charwahe Wali Zindagi hai. Iqbal is saying, If some guide/teacher like Hazrat Shoaib (A.S.) meets than Kaleemi is at two steps. yani Insan Allah ka arif ban sakta aur braveness show kar sakta agar koi ustad mil jaye.
