Poetry of Iqbal (vision)

(131 posts)
  1. i have noted some of member here are interested in Iqbal poetry

    so i have started this thread so that we can better understand Iqbal.

    Here i will post some common used ""shers"" of iqbal with their meanings.

    any other member who know about iqbal should also put his ideas about

    iqbal poetry or give explanation of iqbal's poetry.

    First i will put here

    Cheen-o-Arab hamara, Hindustan hamara

    Muslim hain hum, watan hai sara jahan hamara

    Tauheed ki amanat senon main hai hamarey

    Asan nahin mitana naam-o-nishaan hamara

    Duniya kay bu’t kadon main, wo pehla ghar Khuda ka

    Hum uss kay pasban hain, wo pasban hamara

    Baatil say dabney waley, aey Asman! nahin hum

    Sou baar ker chuka hai Tu imtihan hamara

    Salar-e-Karwan hai Meer-e-Hijaaz (PBUH) apna

    Iss naam say hai baaqi, aaram-e-jahan hamara

    Iqbal ka tarana baang-e-dara hai goya

    Hota hai jada paima, phir karwan hamara

    (Meanings: Cheen-o-Arab = China and Arabia; Hindustan = India; watan = homeland; jahan = world; Tauheed ki amanat = Islam; Senon = Insight; asan = easy; mitana = eliminate; naam-o-nishan = survival; bu’t kadon = idol temples; pehla ghar Khuda ka = Referring to Khana Kaaba; pasban = Protector; Baatil = Oppression; Dabney waley = Oppressed; Asman = Nature; Salar-e-Karwan = Leader of Caravan; Meer-e-Hijaaz (PBUH) = Muhammad (PBUH); Aaram-e-jahan = satisfaction; Tarana = Anthem; bang-e-dara = Voice of bell; jada paima = reactivate)

    Disappointed by the Hindu attitudes, Iqbal began to think himself as a Muslim first, and an ‘Indian’ second. During this stage of his thinking, Alama Iqbal began believing in Pan-Islamism. Iqbal worked with Mohammed Ali and Shaukat Ali and Abul Kalaam Azad. He actively wrote poems on his belief that all Muslims should think of themselves as Muslims first. Caste and Creed were to be given up, and nationalism was shunned for the crescent and star.

    So we should not call as "PAKISTAN HAMARI JAN SAB SE PEHLAY PAKISTAN'

    we are muslim first

  3. thanks salam

    here what the prediction of iqbal about muslim

    Nikal kay sehra say jis nay Roma ki saltanat ko ulat diya tha

    Suna hai qudsiyon say main nay, wo sher phir hoshyar ho ga

    Khuda kay bandey tou hain hazaron, banon main phirtey hain marey marey

    Main uss ka banda banon ga jis ko Khuda kay bandon say pyar ho ga

    Good thread Psycho .
    as long as Iqbal is concerned .
    he was an Islamist by heart but was inspired by the then new wave of socialism in the world ;
    Jis Khait se Dhaqaan ko muyassar nahin rozi
    uss khait kay har khusha-e-Gandum ko jala do!

    kion haeel rahien kahliq o maqlooq kay darmiyan purday
    Piran-e - Kalisa ko Kaleesa se uta do!

  8. here some poetry from Shikwa

    Kiyu* ziya’ kar banu* sood framosh rahu* ?

    (Why must I forever suffer loss, oblivious to gain ?)

    Fikr-e-farda na karu* mehv-e-gham-edosh rahu*?

    (Why think not upon the morrow, drowned in grief for yesterday ?)

    Naale bubul ke sunu* aur hama tan gosh rahu*

    (Why must I attentive heed the nightingale’s lament of pain ?)

    Ham navaa! mai* bhi koi gul hoo* ke khamosh rahu* ?

    (Fellow-bard! am I rose, dondemned to silence all the way?)

    Jur’at aamoze miri taab-e-sukhan mujh ko

    No; the burning power of song bids me be bold and not to faint;

    Shikwa Allah(s.w.t.) se “khakam badahan” hai muhj ko Dust be in my mouth, but God – He is the theme of my complaint.

  10. I do not know much about Iqbal. I do know he changed my life for me, jolted me out of my daily complacency and straight into the arms of some serious thinking again. I am indebted to him as to no one else. If one reads him today, it's as though he already knew what was to come upon us. For instance this extraordinary sentence from The Travellers' Guide in the Call of the Marching Bell: "The blood of the Muslim has become cheap like water". Reading that, I thought: friends, we allowed it to happen. Now get up while there is still some life in your veins and try and undo the damage done. Remember:

    Aye Musulman Sahibe-e Shamshir Tha Duniya Me Tu,
    Maujezan Tehri Ragoon Me Tha Hamiat Ka Lahoo
    Teri Ghairat Ka Takaza Hai Ke Uttke Bedar Ho
    Lab Pe La Illaha, Haat Men Talwar Ho

    Does it even matter what form of government we decide upon finally. What counts, doesn't it, is that we act as Muslims and our Justice and Economic systems correspond wholly to the strict ideas of fairness Islam enjoins upon us. Let us all remain poor, if needs be, but at least let us live poorly in fairness.

    Sorry, if this was off topic, psycho. Brilliant idea to have started this thread.

    Allama Iqbal was the first one to coin the term;'Mulla'.

    As a true and pure Islamist by heart ,he use to hate double standard and non practicing Mullahas .

    Mulla ko jo hay Hind mein sajday ki ijazat
    samjhta hay hay kay Islam hay Azad

    Deen e Mulla fe -sabeel -Allah Fasad

    Mulla aur Bhashat (whole short poem )
    where Mulla is rewarded with the heaven and Iqbal objected upon the decision that Mulla is fond of creating differences and hatred ,what he is gonna do in heaven ?

  14. mirza ghalib

    And also if Iqbal was not an Arab why he wrote a poem “Taariq ke Duaa”.

    “The prayer of Taariq bin Ziyaad in the battlefield in Spain”. One verse is enough for this purpose

    in that poem reads

    KhayabaN mein hey muntazir lala kub sey

    Qubaa chaheay iss ko khoon e arab se

    The lala (a kind of flower) has been waiting for long in the garden

    It needs its color from the blood of the Arabs

    “Khitaab ba jawaanaan e Islam” in which he says to the young Muslim.

    You have been reared by a nation

    that crushed the crown of Darius under its feet

    O what should I tell you of those desert dwellers

    They were a people that overcame the whole world

    They understood the world

    They beautified the world

    They took care of the wrold

    They were the founders of the greatest civilization

    They showed the world how to govern

    And they were simply a people from the deserts of Arabia

    i.e. the home of the camel herders

    قوم کیا چیز ہے‘ قوموں کی امامت کیا ہے
    اس کو کیا سمجھیں یہ بے چارے دورکعت کے امام

  18. psycho bhai, this is in reply to the first part of your lesson on Tariq ke Duaa and Guftaar-e-siyasat main watan aur hi kuch hai, both of which, in your explanation became sparklingly clear. thank you for going to so much trouble on my behalf.

    For Taariq bin Ziyaad's prayer in the battlefield in Spain, I can only say it comes in a more than timely fashion as the Afghan Resistance begins its Al-Faath operations today.
    Now our battle to end all battles: "Needs its colour from the blood of the Afghans". Iqbal thought very highly of them, didn't he. May all our prayers go with our Muslim brothers and sisters in Afghanistan today and in days to come.

    Yes, the Arabs did something extraordinary; "they took care of the world", they did. That is why Islam is still so strong today. And without our Arab brothers back in the fold, no Ummah will see the day. But they will return, they will.

    The second part of your posting:

    Guftaar-e-siyasit main watan aur hi kuch hai
    Irshaad-e-Naboo'at (PBUH) main watan aur hi kuch hai

    is not only incomparably beautifully said. It is, to my mind, what enabled millions upon millions to stand up finally and opt for Pakistan, even at ^the horrendous price we had to pay for it. All the other verses you give are the very reason I believe in the Islami Nizam. Islam is the strongest of our strengths, then as now. But I see everything coming in steps and stages. The Justice system then the economy. If this is done under some silly electroral system, whyever not. Everyone will be happy all round. When we start rising, we'll see how fast everyone rallies round the system. As Salam Sahib once said: Most people are worshippers of the Rising Sun. Then gradually the rest of it will be put into place.

    And then greatest of visionaries Iqbal gives us the last bit of precious advice: patience.

    Shab guraizan ho gi aakhir jalwa-e-khursheed say
    Ye chaman mamoor ho ga naghma-e-Tauheed say

    That's how I understood it, psycho. Right or wrong it makes it easier to know where to go next. Thank you, psycho.

    CONCEPT OF KHUDI

    as long as Iqbal is concerned .
    he was an Islamist by heart but was inspired by the then new wave of socialism in the world ;
    Jis Khait se Dhaqaan ko muyassar nahin rozi
    uss khait kay har khusha-e-Gandum ko jala do!..........

    Actually lots of people quoted Iqbal with little understanding..
    First thing to note as a basic is that SOCIALISM was Intruduced After ISLAM have given basic rights to muslims..

    HAZRAT UMER said,
    Pay the labour his compensation bfore he got out fresh after his HARD WORK....
    Socialism and things like that are Just recent but ISLAMIC HAD given the RIGHTS well bfore SOCIALISM...
    HOW IQBAL can be Impressed by socialism,leaving the lots of refferences from ISLAM.OR
    Some one may come up that IQBAL WAS AGAINST ISLAMIC SOCIALISM....???????

    Allama Iqbal was the first one to coin the term;'Mulla'....

    Allama was not the first one coin the term Mulla.
    ISLAMIC scholars of almost every age were used to mention BLACK SHEEPS among them.
    Shaikh Abdul Qadir jilani,Shah waliullah,Ibne Taimiya, and many others always mentioned Black SHEEPS IN THE cover of RELIGIOUS LEADERS..
    So IQBAL was never the first one but he used the consistent approach towARDS SUCH sTUFF...

    Mulla in IQBAL's words,

    AFGHANIYON K GHAIRATY DEEN KA HY YE ILAJ

    MULLA KO UN K KOH-O-DAMAN SE NIKAL DO...

    Theirfore i would like to request to pls Limit ur posts to the knowledge abt IQBAL u have.Deviating facts about IQBAL according to own wishes and ideology should be discouraged....

    my all time favorite

    THE SATAN’S ADVISORY COUNCIL
    THE SATAN:

    An old game of needs this mean world’s tact,
    To heavenly host hopes a cold blood act.

    That Great Maker bent to wreck earth soon,
    Who gave it a name of ‘KAF’ and ‘NOON’.

    To Europe I gave the kingship’s dream,
    I broke the spell of church and mosque’s team.

    I taught to the poor a lesson of fate,
    To the wealthy I gave the wealth’s craze great.

    Who can put out that fire’s big blaze,
    Of riots whome Satan had set ablaze.

    To plants we watered, caused to be trees,
    Who can bring that old tree to knees.

    FIRST ADVISOR:

    The Satan’s order is firm every where,
    The masses too like the servitude snare.

    The bows were writ for the poor in fate,
    A pray without stay their nature’s trait.

    Either in his heart a wish does not lie,
    If wakes up ever, would be raw and die.

    Isn’t this a marvel of constant push’ hence,
    That Mullah is tied with kingship fence.

    A best booze it was to Eastern nature then,
    No lesser vice singing to ‘eloquence’ ken.

    The Haj and Ka’aba Rounds yet a rite though,
    The nude sword of Moniin is blunt I know.

    On whose despair he formed a **** view,
    "On Muslim war is banned in this age new"

    SECOND ADVISOR:

    Is this roar in goodness that masses are kings?
    You know not new mischiefs of underlings.

    FIRST ADVISOR:

    A good point well, my seeing eye hails,
    No danger too there from a kingship’s veil.

    We gave to kingship the masses rule’s dress,
    Self conscious now is man with self’s ingress.

    The kingship science has a different sense,
    It needs not a garb of a monarch hence.

    May be Nation’s Council or Kaiser’s court,
    A king’s eye craves a foreign land or port.

    Didn’t you see western democratic track,
    Whose face is shining but inner is black.

    THIRD ADVISOR:

    What is the harm if lives the royal soul,
    What is the answer to that Jew’s wicked role.

    That Moses sans vision! that Christ sans cross,
    He’s not prophet, but, keeps Book for a gloss*.

    How to show that heathen’s shameless eyes,
    To East, West nations a doomsday lies.

    No worst cancer looks than his nature’s bent,
    That the slaves have toppled the. master’s tent.

    *Gloss a narration on foot notes, (Fig) here it means a deceptive appearance (over a life of secret wrong doings, a false or misleading inter relation).

    FOURTH ADVISOR:

    Its counter action see in Rome’s big halls,
    We have shown his Sons, dream of Caesar’s call.

    Who is now wrapped with waves of Roman Sea,
    Like lute they weep oft, oft they grow like pine’s tree.

    THIRD ADVISOR:

    I can’t admire his prudence and care,
    Who laid bare the Europe’s statecraft snare.

    FIFTH ADVISOR:

    Due to thy burning this world gets balance,
    When you wished laid bare each hidden face hence.

    Thy heat in his clay the world’s pomp and show,
    You taught the heaven’s fool, a wisdom so.

    Than thee He knows not the nature of men,
    Who is famous as God, in the fool’s ken.

    Whose duty was praise, rosary and round,
    Due to thy envy, in shame ever bound.

    All wise men of West are thy pupil though,
    I have no faith yet in their wisdom so.

    That mischief monger Jew, the Muzdak’s soul.
    Each tunic gets torn from his crazy goal.

    A crow looks prone to seize the hawk’s force,
    How quick the time changes nature’s course.

    Being restive she scanned the skies vast space,
    Like fools we counted ‘dust’ of human race.

    The horrors of future, looking so great,
    With hills and vales shiver the brooks in spate.

    My Master! that world is going to doom,
    The world which looks to thy Leadership’s boom.

    SATAN
    (To His Advisor):

    Thus lies in my hold the world’s pomp an show,
    This earth, the Sun and Moon, the Sky’s glow.

    Shall see the East and West my game and roar.
    As soon I warm up Western nation’s gore.*1

    The pontiffs of church, the leaders of State,
    My one din’s echoe for them a dread great.

    To her a modern world if a fool espies;
    This culture’s wine cups will someone break and sea?

    The collars to whom the Nature has torn,
    The logic of Muzdak*2 to them cant darn.

    How can frighten me the Socialist lads,*3
    Since long jobless, confused and loafing lads.*3

    From that nation but I feel a threat grave,
    whose heart yet holds hidden embers of crave.

    A few of them I espy in this nation yet,
    At dawn who take ‘Wuzu’*4 with tear drops jet.

    He knows on whom hidden Times are bright,
    The Islam, not Muzdak is the future’s fright.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CHAPTER 2

    I know this nation to Quran holds not,
    The old craze for wealth is the Momin ‘s thought.

    In dark nights of East this point I behold,
    The sleeves of Harem Sheikhs no white hand hold.

    I am but afraid that modern age needs,
    May not force this age to know Prophet’s creed.

    Beware! hundred times from the Prophet’s Act,
    It guards women honour, makes man perfect.

    A death knell to those who made the mar, slave,
    It ruled out kingship, no beggary it gave.’

    It cleaned the man’s wealth from’ every stain,
    It made the rich trustees of wealth’s wrong drain.

    No bigger change could be of deeds and thoughts,
    This earth owns to Allah, to a king not.

    His Law be kept hidden from whole world’s eye,
    To my solace Moumin lacks a faith high.

    Let him be fastened in metaphysics lone,
    In his own meanings of the Koran’s tone.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CHAPTER 3

    Whose call God is Great*5 broke the world spell,
    That conscious man’s night why not a bright deli.

    Did the Christ died or alive from start*6?
    Are God’s attributes His Part or apart?

    Is the coming Christ Hindi Nasir’s dad?
    Is he a mujaddid*7 like the Mary’s lad?

    Are God’s words mortal or old like Him hence?
    Which sect of the Ummah will have riddance?

    Are’nt now enough for Muslims of this age?
    His dogmas gods he found in his rummage.*8

    From a practical life keep him away,
    Get all his pawns beaten in this nice way.

    He’s better a slave upto the dooms day,
    Leave the mortal world for others hey-day.

    The verse and mysticism suits for his ‘deen’.*9
    Which hides from his eyes life’s vital scene.

    I fear from this Ummah lest they awake,
    Being his faith’s base, world account he would take.

    In prays at dawn keep him rapt*10 and grave.*11
    Make him zealot*12 fan of tombs and graves.

    I think Iqbal Sb had three phases in his life.

    Nationalist Phase
    Socialist phase
    Islamic Phase

    The islamic phase was the last one and the most profound one. And as a a rule what ever ideas, thoughts, concepts one keeps in ones later life are taken as the main and the key ideas, thoughts and concepts of that person.

    No2.. yes ,black sheep in religion was always there but giving them a title of ‘Mullah’ was Iqbal’s own creativity ....

    Pls read my Post above and also urs.The matter was not a word MULLAH.
    But you claimed that IQBAL was the First one to coin the term Mullah..
    Mullah,Maulana,Religious leader all are the same things.
    IQBAL only reffered to the BLACK SHEEPS among MULLAH,he was not reffering to all the religious authorities as ur post looks like.
    You generalised here the Term Mullah in ur above Post.
    IQBAL NEVER GENERALISED THE TERM MULLAH....
    If you say that IQBAL GENERALISED THE TERM MULLA than pls come with ur Arguments Proofs..
    This generalisation is always used by many people.which is wrong approach towards IQBALIYAT....

    The problematic area was ur Generalisation of the term MULLA,by quoting IQBAL.Such refference to IQBAL is wrong.Care is needed in this regard..

    Your Second Generalisation was about SOCIALISM.Here you are reffering to Marxist theory of socialism..
    NOW this is such a big allegation over IQBAL on the BASES of,
    KHAITH & khosha-e-gandum ONLY.
    The socialism about Iqbal means the social Aspect of Human life,not abt socilism of Marx theory.
    If you have any of that research work,than pls come to discuss this Aspect of Iqbal in more detail..

    On the First Para of ur Post,i would just say pls COOL DOWN.
    It was just a discussion related word i mentioned that your generalisations should be within certain Knowledge Based.Mere generalisations will never work.I never mention any of ur claims abt ur knowledge.If i have pls mention it it.....

    as highlighted by FJ, i agree that poets usually do experience different phases in life and there presentation evolves accordingly-

    one may find many verses praising a british queen or praising a nawab or etc but we should not get carried away with those and focus on his message for the muslims and his struggle for the muslims-

    a member posted Iqbal's poetry which I present here for discussion:

    Alfaz-o-maani mein tafawat(difference) nahi lekin
    Mullah(religious person) ki azaan aur, mujaajid(holy warrior) ki azaan aur

    why is that some people present word 'mulla' used by Iqbal as 'religious person' while clearly he used it for those who only sell prayer services in mosque.

    i think it is incorrect to translate world 'mulla' as religious person because 'mujahid' is also a religious person but different work role.

    Exactly this is right.
    The thing is like that he was Impressed by the theories which was amtching also ISLAMIC CONCEPTS of socialism..
    But that is reffered to as Iqbal was Impressed by Socialism..
    This is again i would say that missrepresentation of Iqbal.
    Not only socilism but Iqbal was Impressed by so many concepts of islam if implemented in the world any where..
    For example if some one is impressed by the Saudi Islamic Laws,as a muslim.
    This doesnot mean and would be missrepresentation if some one says that;THAT person is impressed by Saudi Arabian Govt....
    Same was the case with IQBAL.He was always missunderstood and missrepresented in many Aspects.
    This is all from me.

    It would be best if people understand first what is tawheed (ربوبیت، الہیت، اسماء وصفات). That would help understand the fine line between poetic license and metrical elegance, and therefore whether Iqbal's poetry refreshens your faith or dejects it.

    here poem the poem

    The world does not like tricks and
    Of science and wit nor, their contests
    This age does not like ancient thoughts,
    From core of hearts their show detests.

    O wise economist, the books you write
    Are quite devoid of useful aim:
    They have twisted lines with orders strange
    No warmth for labour, though they claim.

    The idol houses of the West,
    Their schools and churches wide
    The ravage caused for, greed of wealth
    Their wily wit attempts to hide.
