Dua
Prayer

Ya Rab! Dil-e-Muslim Ko Woh Zinda Tamana De
Jo Qalb Ko Garma De, Jo Rooh Ko Tarpa De

Lord, fill the Muslim’s heart with a desire so fervent
That it will set his heart aflame and stir his soul.

Phir Wadi-e-Faran Ke Har Zarre Ko Chamka De
Phir Shauq-e-Tamasha De, Phir Zauq-e-Taqaza

Light up again every speck of dust in the Valley of Faran.
Make us long again for beautiful sights, and create in us the urge to make demands.

Mehroom-e-Tamasha Ko Phir Dida-e-Beena De
Dekha Hai Jo Kuch Mein Ne Auron Ko Bhi Dikhla De

Give piercing vision to those deprived of sight,
and show to others what I have seen.

Bhatke Huway Aahu Ko Phir Soo’ay Haram Le Chal
Iss Sheher Ke Khugar Ko Phir Wusaat-e-Sehra De

Lead the stray gazelle back to the Sanctuary.
It has grown used to the city ‐ Give it back the vastness of the desert.

Paida Dil-e-Weeran Mein Phir Shaurish-e-Mehshar Kar
Iss Mehmil-e-Khali Ko Phir Shahid-e-Laila De

Stir up again the ruins of the heart with a commotion like judgment Day.
Let this empty litter once again seat a sweetheart ‐ a Layla!

Iss Dour Ki Zulmat Mein Har Qalb-e-Preshan Ko
Woh Dagh-e-Mohabbat De Jo Chand Ko Sharma De

In the darkness of this age give to every troubled heart
Scars of love that would shame the moon.

Riffat Mein Maqasid Ko Humdosh-e-Surraya Kar
Khuddari-e-Sahil De, Azadi-e-Darya De

Let the goals be as high as the Pleiades.
Give us the calm and poise of the shore, But the freedom of the sea.

Be Lous Mohabbat Ho, Bebak Sadaqat Ho
Seenon Mein Ujala Kar, Dil Soorat-e-Meena De

Let love be selfless and truth fearless;
Let our breasts be flooded with light‐Make our hearts clear as crystal.

Ehsas Anayat Kar Asaar-e-Mosibat Ka
Amroz Ki Shuarish Mein Andesha-e-Farda De

Enable us to foresee the calamity that is coming;
In the midst of today’s upheaval give us a vision of tomorrow.

Main Bulbul-e-Nalan Hun Ek Ujre Gulistan Ka
Taseer Ka Saa’il Hun, Mauhtaj Ko, Data De!

I am a nightingale making my lament, I am from a garden which has been ravaged.
I wish that my prayer would have effect—Give to a beggar, bounteous Lord!

  2. SubhanAllah, from a blessed land came a blessed being, gifted with knowledge and wisdom to guide a blessed people. if only the rulers of our great country could put into practise ONE thing Allama sahib writes, we would have jannat on earth as well as next dunyia, Islam, Allama sahib and Pakistan zindabad.

    2. Anonymous, please read our history. Allama Iqbal (rahmatullahi alaihi) was born in India and died in India. India is thousands of years old, which included Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and parts of Afghanistan. We are one people. Just because of present geographies, people cannot be divided. Beshak "sare jahan se accha hindustan hamara". Allama Iqbal (rahmatullahi alaihi) was a great soul. He was a great human being. He held every human sacred, irrespective of religion and region, a true Muslim. Please read his kalaam and try to understand from a teacher. And if you cannot say things that bring people together, then keep quiet.

  4. Iqbal's this poetry though inspiring is addressed to Muslims of his time in India only and not to all human beings. Only a communal poet can do this. Iqbal always took pride in associating himself with Saproo Brahmins of Kashmir and never was ashamed of calling himself a Brahminzada.
    No surprise ! Kissi pe koi assar hua kia? Kabhi hoga bhi nahin.

    1. Anonymous, dil se jo baat nikalti hai asar rakhti hai. Aap ki kahan se nikli? Learn from a teacher. You seem to be a product of your own shallow mind who tries to look for darkness when there is light everywhere.

  12. I'd like you to review my translation of above couplets:

    - O'Loard! Bequeaths to the heart of Muslims such tempting desire;
    which; make the heart warm - make the soul stir!

    - Light-up again every fleck of the valley of Faran;
    give again sights and over again urge to make demand!

    - Give again sharp-vision to deprived ones;
    and show them too, what I've seen!

    - Take the wandering gazelles back towards safe heavens;
    to the residents of this city - give back again the vastness of desert!

    - Stir-up again; depressed heart with turmoil like judgement day;
    let this empty litter have onceagain a sweetheart like a Layla!

    - In this actrocious age; grant every fear-provoking heart;
    that scars of love, which make the moo timid!

    - Let the targets be as high as the Pleiades;
    give calm and poise like shore - give freedom like sea!

    - Let's be - selfless love; fearless truth;
    filled our breasts with light - make our hearts as clear as crystal!

    - Enable us to forsee the clamity that is coming;
    in the midst of today's turmoil give us a vision of tomorrow!

    - I'm depressed nightingale of one revaged gardsn;
    tramp of effect I'm; bestow aid to this beggar - O' Bounteous Loard!

  13. Just thought that I'd draw your attention to a great conversation with Tahir Hameed Tanoli on the life and thought of Allama Iqbal, on the site of the Halal Monk.

  16. From what I understand : Baang E Dara : Means call of the Clarion. Call to action. Wake up call.
    Mostly for solidarity for a change for a progress for a reconstruction, for a progressive thought and action. Which is good for the common man.

  18. " سیمینار بسلسلہ یوم اقبال "

    دیارِ عشق میں اپنا مقام پیدا کر
    نیا زمانہ نئے صبح و شام پیدا کر
    خدا اگر دلِ فطرت شناس دے تجھ کو
    سکوتِ لالہ و گل سے کلام پیدا کر
    اُٹھا نہ شیشہ گرانِ فرنگ کے احساں
    سفالِ ہند سے مینا و جام پیدا کر
    میں شاخِ تاک ہوں میری غزل ہے میرا ثمر
    مرے ثمر سے مئی لالہ فام پیدا کر
    میرا طریق امیری نہیں فقیری ہے!
    خودی نا بیچ غریبی میں نام پیدا کر

    جناب طارق اقبال نے کلام اقبال کو اپنی پُر اثر آواز کا جادو جگاتے ھوئے انتہائی خوبصورتی سے حاضرین کے دلوں کو گرما دیا اور خوب داد سمیٹی ـ
