Qabze Se Ummat Bechari Ke Deen Bhi Gya, Dunya Bhi Gyi
O zephyr! Convey my message to the one wrapped in blanket
The poor Ummah has lost both din and material resources
Hai Door Wisaal-e-Behar Abhi, Tu Darya Mein Ghabra Bhi Gyi!
The river bank gave this message to the restless wave
“Union with ocean is still far and you have already lost patience in the river”
Mehmil Jo Gya Izzat Bhi Gyi, Ghairat Bhi Gyi, Laila Bhi Gyi
O Qais! Love’s honor is made durable with litter’s curtain
If litter is lost, glory, honor as well as Lailah is lost!
Awargi-e-Fitrat Bhi Gyi Aur Kashmakash-e-Darya Bhi Gyi
Though the drop got pearl’s dignity by abandoning struggle
It lost taste for wandering and struggle in the river
Pegham-e-Sukoon Pohancha Bhi Gyi, Dil Mehfil Ka Tarpa Bhi Gyi
Though this voice has emerged from Iqbal’s lips its source is unknown
The assembly got hope’s message as well as became restless for activism
