(Bal-e-Jibril-151) Javed Ke Naam

Javed Ke Naam
To Javid

(London Mein Uss Ke Hath Ka Likha Huwa Pehla Khat Ane Par)
(On receiving his first letter in London)

Diyar-e-Ishq Mein Apna Maqam Paida Kar
Naya Zamana, Naye Subah-o-Sham Paida Kar

Build in love’s empire your hearth and your home;
Build Time anew, a new dawn, a new eve!

Khuda Agar Dil-e-Fitrat Shanas De Tujh Ko
Sakoot-e-Lala-o-Gul Se Kalaam Paida Kar

Your speech, if God give you the friendship of Nature,
From the rose and tulip’s long silence weave.

Utha Na Sheesha Garan-e-Farang Ke Ehsan
Sifal-e-Hind Se Meena-o-Jaam Paida Kar

No gifts of the Franks’ clever glass‐bowers ask!
From India’s own clay mould your cup and your flask.

Main Shakh-e-Taak Hun, Meri Ghazal Hai Mera Samar
Mere  Samar Se Mai-e-Lala Faam Paida Kar

My songs are the grapes on the spray of my vine;
Distil from their clusters the poppy‐red wine!

Mera Tareeq Ameeri Nahin, Faqeeri Hai
Khudi Na Baich, Ghareebi Mein Naam Paida Kar!

The way of the hermit, not fortune, is mine;
Sell not your soul! In a beggar’s rags shine.

    1. Why do you think like that? It is better if you read it and try to realise it rather than passing comment on others..

  7. Yaa Allah SWT, Iqbaal ke khwaab ko zinda kar de. Islam ka ghar roshan kar de. Ya Allah SWT hamari khilafat wapas de de....

    Pakistanion Yaad Rakho:
    Iqbaal ke fiqh ki bunyad pe tumnein mulk banaya hai, agar is ko maghrabi tahzeeb par zinda karne ki koshish ki to kaheen bhi sukoon na hoga. Islam zinda karo take yeh ummah zinda ho sake. Allah ke ahkam ko pahchano aur nawaz, zardari jaise bhade ke tattuon se bachaao is Allah ke karishme ko. Bina Allah SWT ke karishme ke Pakistan ka banana na mumqin tha. Allah se wafadari par aao.
