Jawab-e-Shikwa THE ANSWER TO THE COMPLAINT

Stanza (1)

 

Dil Se Jo Baat Nikalti Hai, Asar Rakhti Hai Par Nahin, Taaqat-e-Parwaaz Magar Rakhti Hai When passion streaming from the heart turns human lips to lyres, Some magic wings man’s music then, his song with soul inspires;

Qudsi-Ul-Asal Hai, Riffat Pe Nazar Rakhti Hai Khaak Se Uthti Hai, Gardoon Pe Guzar Rakhti Hai Man’s words are sacred then, they soar, The ears of heaven they seek, From dust those mortal accents rise, Immortals hear them speak;

Ishq Tha Fitna Gar-o-Sarkash-o-Chalaak Mera Aasman Cheer Gaya Nala-e-Bebaak Mera So wild and wayward was my Love, such tumult raised its sighs, Before its daring swiftly fell the ramparts of the skies.

Stanza (2)

Peer-e-Gardoon Ne Kaha Sun Ke, Kahin Hai Koi! Bole Sayyaare, Sar-e-Arsh-e-Bareen Hai Koi! The skies exclaimed in wonderment, “Some one is hiding here,” The wheeling Planets paused to say, “Seek on the highest sphere.”

Chaand Kahta Tha, Nahin, Ahl-e-Zameen Hai Koi! Kehkashaan Kehti Thi, Poshida Yahin Hai Koi! The silver Moon said, “You are wrong, Some mortal it must be,” The Milky Way too joined converse, “Here in our midst is he.’’

Kuch Jo Samjha Tau Mere Shikwe Ko Rizwan Samjha  Mujhe Jannat Se Nikala Huwa Insan Samjha Rizwan alone, my plaintive voice began to recognise, He knew me for a human who had lost his Paradise.

Stanza (3)

Thi Farishton Ko Bhi Hairat, Ke Yeh Awaz Hai Kya!  Arsh Walon Pe Bhi Khulta Nahin Yeh Raaz Hai Kya! And even the Angels could not tell what was that voice so strange, Whose secret seemed to lie beyond Celestial wisdom’s range.

Taa Sar-e-Arsh Bhi Insan Ki Tag-o-Taaz Hai Kya?  Aa Gyi Khak Ki Chutki Ko Bhi Parwaaz Hai Kya? They said, “Can Man now roving come and reach these regions high? That tiny speck of mortal clay, has it now learnt to fly?

Ghafil Aadaab Se Yeh Sukkaan-e-Zameen Kaise Hain Shokh-o-Gustakh Yeh Pasti Ke Makeen Kaise Hain! How little do these beings of earth the laws of conduct know; How coarse and insolent they are, these men who live below.

Stanza (4)

Iss Qadar Shokh Ke Allah Se Bhi Barham Hai  Tha Jo Masjood-e-Malaeek Yeh Wohi Aadam Hai? So great their insolence indeed, they dare even God upbraid! Is this the Man to whom their bow the Angels once had made?

Alam-e-Kaif Hai, Dana-e-Ramooz-e-Kam Hai Haan, Magar Ijz Ke Asrar Se Namehram Hai Of Quality and Quantity He knows the secrets, true— The ways of humbleness as well If he a little knew!

Naaz Hai Taaqat-e-Guftaar Pe Insanon Ko  Baat Karne Ka Saliqa Nahin Nadanon Ko! That they alone are blest with speech how proud these humans be, Yet, ignorant, they lack the art to use it gracefully.”

Stanza (5)

Ayi Aawaz Ghum-Angaiz Hai Afsana Tera Ashk-e-Betaab Se Labraiz Hai Paimana Tera Then spake a Voice Compassionate: “Your tale enkindles pain, Your cup is brimming full with tears which you could not contain

Asmangeer Huwa Naara-e-Mastana Tera Kis Qadar Shokh Zuban Hai Dil-e-Diwana Tera Even High Heaven itself is moved by these impassioned cries; How wild the heart which taught your lips such savage melodies!

Shukr Shikwe Ko Kiya Husn-e-Ada Se Tu Ne  Hum Sukhan Kar Diya Bandon Ko Khuda Se Tu Ne Its grace yet makes this song of yours a song of eulogy; A bridge of converse you have formed ‘Twixt mortal man and Me!

Stanza (6)

Hum Tau Mayal Ba-Karam Hain, Koi Sayal Hi Nahin  Rah Dikhlaen Kise Rahraw-e-Manzil Hi Nahin Behold, my hands arc full of gifts, but who comes seeking here? And how shall I the right road shew when there’s no traveller?

Tarbiat Aam Tau Hai, Jauhar-e-Qabil Hi Nahin Jis Se Taamir Ho Aadam Ki Yeh Woh Gil Hi Nahin My loving care is there for all, If deserved but by few! Not this the clay from which I can an Adam’s shape renew!

Koi Qabil Ho Tau Hum Shan-e-Kai Dete Hain Dhoondne Walon Ko Dunya Bhi Nai Dete Hain! On him who merits well I set the brightest diadem, And those who truly questing come, a new world waits for them.

Stanza (7)

Hath Be-Zor Hain, Ilhaad Se Dil Khoo-Gar Hain Ummati Baais-e-Ruswai-e-Paighamber (S.A.W) Hain Apostate hearts and palsied hands Your earthly lives debase, You all, to your great Prophet (PBUH), are Bringers of deep disgrace;

But-Shikan Uth Gaye, Baqi Jo Rahe But-Gar Hain Tha Braheem Pidar, Aur Pisar Aazar Hain Those idol‐breakers all have gone, You idolaters are, Abraham was the father, you His sons, are but Azar;

Badah Aasham Naye, Bada Naya, Khum Bhi Naye Harm-e-Kaaba Naya, But Bhi Naye, Tum Bhi Naye Now stranger bands carousal hold, Strange are both cup and wine, A strange new Kaʹba you have reared, Strange idols oh its shrine!

Stanza (8)

Woh Bhi Din The Ke Yehi Maya-e-Raanai Tha Nazish-e-Mousam-e-Gul Lala-e-Sahrai Tha! The tulip of the wilds once reigned the queen of blossom‐time: In this once lay the quintessence of loveliness sublime.

Jo Musalmaan Tha Allah Ka Saudai Tha Kabhi Mehboob Tumhara Yehi Harjai Tha Once every true‐born Mussalman by Allah set his store, This fickle‐hearted courtesan even you did once adore!

Kisi Yakjai Se Ab Ehd-e-Ghulami Kar Lo Millat-e-Ahmad (S.A.W.) Ko Maqami Kar Lo! Go, seek some constant mistress now, to her a new bond sign, Muhammad’s universal creed to narrow bounds confine!

Stanza (9)

Kis Qadar Tum Pe Garan Subah Ki Baidari Hai Hum Se Kab Pyar Hai! Haan Neend Tumhain Pyari Hai To pray to me at break of day You now an ordeal deem, Your morning slumber sweeter far— Yet you would faithful seem!

Tabaa-e-Azad Pe Qaid-e-Ramazan Bhari Hai Tumhi Keh Do, Yehi Aaeen-e-Wafadari Hai? The hardships of the fast oppress your natures—now grown free; Such are your ways and you still would protest your love for me!

Qoum Mazhab Se Hai, Mazhab Jo Nahin, Tum Bhi Nahin Jazb-e-Baham Jo Nahin, Mehfil-e-Anjum Bhi Nahin Unto a nation faith is life, You lost your faith and fell, When gravitation fails, must cease concourse celestial.

Stanza (10)

Jin Ko Ata Nahin Dunya Mein Koi Fann, Tum Ho Nahin Jis Qoum Ko Parwaye Nasheman, Tum Ho You love your homes the least among the nations of the earth, You are the most incompetent in knowledge and in worth;

Bijliyan Jis Mein Hon Aasudah, Woh Khirman Tum Ho Baich Khate Hain Jo Aslaaf Ke Madfan, Tum Ho You are a barn where lightning stays, where ruin idle lies, Ancestral coffins long entombed your only merchandise;

Ho Niko Naam Jo Qabaron Ki Tajarat Kar Ke Kya Na Baicho Ge Jo Mil Jaen Sanam Pathar Ke In turning graves to profit, you have proved yourselves adept; Should idol‐trading offer gain of course you would accept.

Stanza (11)

Safah-e-Dehr Se Batil Ko Mitaya Kis Ne?  Nau-e-Insan Ko Ghulami Se Chhuraya Kis Ne? Whose striving, from this world of mine, Its falsehoods did efface? Whose toil, from age‐old ignorance set free the human race?

Mere Kaabe Ko Jabeenon Se Basaya Kis Ne?  Mere Quran Ko Seenon Se Lagaya Kis Ne? And whose the brows whose worship filled My Kaʹba’s hallowed shrine? Or whose the breasts which fondly held My ‘Glorious Book Divine’?

The Tou Aaba Woh Tumhare Hi, Magar Tum Kya Ho? Hath Par Hath Dhare Muntazir-e-Farda Ho! These were your great progenitors; You lack their brain and brawn; You sit and wait in slothful ease for every morrow’s dawn.

Stanza (12)

Kya Kaha? “Bahr-e-Musalman Hai Faqt Wade-e-Hoor Shikwa Be-Ja Bhi Kare Koi Tau Lazim Hai Shaoor! And did you say, for Muslims I mere promises dispense? Unjust laments at least should show some spark of commonsense.

Adal Hai Fatir-e-Hasti Ka Azal Se Dastoor Muslim Aaeen Huwa Kafir Tau Mile Hoor-o-Qasoor Eternal is the Law of God and Justice is its name, Should infidels like Muslims live the meed shall be the same.

Tum Mein Hooron Ka Koi Chahne Wala Hi Nahin Jalwa-e-Toor Tau Maujood Hai, Moosa Hi Nahin Not a single one among you is longing for houris The Effulgence of  ‘Tur’ exists but there is no Moses

Stanza (13)

Manfa’at Aik Hai Is Qaum Ki, Nuqsan Bhi Aik Ek Hi Sab Ka Nabi (S.A.W), Din Bhi, Iman Bhi Aik Your nation’s weal, your nation’s woe, In common you all share, Your Prophet (PBUH) and your creed the same, the same Truth you declare;

Harm-e-Paak Bhi, Allah Bhi, Quran Bhi Aik,  Kuch Bari Baat Thi Hote Jo Musalmaan Bhi Aik! And one your Kaʹba, One your God, and one your great Quran; Yet, still, divided each from each, Lives every Mussalman.

Firqa Bandi Hai Kahin, Aur Kahin Zaatain Hain Kya Zamane Mein Panapne Ki Yehi Baatain Hain? You split yourselves in countless sects, In classes high and low; Think you the world its gifts will still on such as you bestow?

Stanza (14)

Kon Hai Taarik-e-Aaeen-e-Rasool-e-Mukhtar (S.A.W.)? Maslihat Waqt Ki Hai Kis Ke Amal Ka Maayaar? Who now forgetfully neglect My Rasool’s Law sublime? And whose lives write them clearly down As servers of the time?

Kis Ki Ankhon Mein Samaya Hai Sha’ar-e-Aghyar Ho Gyi Kis Ki Nigah Tarz-e-Salaf Se Baizar? To whom now other customs seem far nobler than their own? By whom your great forefathers’ ways once followed, are forsworn?

Qalb Mein Souz Nahin, Rooh Mein Ehsas Nahin Kuch Bhi Paigham-e-Muhammad (S.A.W.) Ka Tumhain Paas Nahin Your hearts are now of longing void, Your souls now know no zeal, You heed no more that message great which Ahmad (PBUH) did reveal.

Stanza (15)

Jaa Ke Hote Hain Masajid Mein Saf-Aara, Tau Ghareeb Zehmat-e-Roza Jo Karte Hain Gawara, Tau Ghareeb If worship’s echoes ring in mosques, It is the poor who pray; If any fasting’s hardship bear, It is the poor, today;

Naam Leta Hai Agar Koi Hamara, Tau Ghareeb Pardah Rakhta Hai Agar Koi Tumhara, Tau Ghareeb It is the humble and the poor who still my name esteem, Theirs is the word, theirs is the deed, Yours the shame they redeem.

Umra Nasha-e-Doulat Mein Hain Ghafil Hum Se Zinda Hai Millat-e-Baiza Ghurba Ke Dam Se The rich are drunk with wine of wealth, their God they hardly know, It is because the poor yet live That wells of Faith still flow.

Stanza (16)

Waaiz-e-Qoum Ki Woh Pukhta Khayali Na Rahi Barq Taba’ee Na Rahi, Shaola Maqali Na Rahi That judgment ripe is no more theirs who play your preachers’ role, Nor kindling accents from their lips, reveal the flaming soul.

Reh Gyi Rasm-e-Azan, Rooh-e-Bilali Na Rahi Falsafa Reh Gya, Talqeen-e-Ghazali Na Rahi Azan yet sounds, but never now Like Bilal’s, soulfully; Philosophy, conviction-less, Now mourns its Ghazzali,

Masjidain Marsiya Khawan Hain Ke Namazi Na Rahe Yani Woh Sahib-e-Ausaf-e-Hijazi Na Rahe Untrod by praying feet, the mosques lament their emptiness, For gone are those exemplars great of Arab godliness

Stanza (17)

Shor Hai Ho Gaye Dunya Se Musalman Nabood Hum Ye Kehte Hain Ke The Bhi Kahin Muslim Maujood! It is said: “ The Muslims quit this world, Their days are on the wane The Muslims died out long ago; Such a lament is vain.

Waza Mein Tum Ho Nisara, Tau Tamaddun Mein Hanood,  Yeh Musalman Hain! Jinhain Dekh Ke Sharmaen Yahood? From Christians you have learnt your style, your culture from Hindus; How can a race as Muslims pass who shame even the Jews?

Yun To Syed Bhi Ho, Mirza Bhi Ho, Afghan Bhi Ho Tum Sabhi Kuch Ho, Batao To Musalman Bhi Ho! You are known as Syed, and Mughal, you call yourselves Pathan; But can you truly claim as well the name of Mussalman?

Stanza (18)

Dam-e-Taqreer Thi Muslim Ki Sadaqat Bebak Adal Uss Ka Tha Qawi, Loos-e-Mara’at Se Pak The Muslim was sincere of speech, of fear his voice was free; Just, staunch, he scorned the slightest breath of partiality.

Shajar-e-Fitrat-e-Muslim Tha Haya Se Namnak Tha Shujaat Mein Woh Ek Hasti-e-Fouq-Ul-Idraak In nature, like a tree, kept fresh by modesty most rare, Yet braver than the bravest he, intrepid past compare.

Khud Gudazi Nam-e-Kaifiat-e-Sehbayesh Bood Khali Az Khawaish Shudan Soorat-e-Meenayesh Bood Like wine, upon the drinker’s lips, his joy, in losing, lay; As the cup pours its liquor out, he poured his ‘self’ away.

Stanza (19)

Har Musalman Rag-e-Batil Ke Liye Nashtar Tha Uss Ke Aaeena-e-Hasti Mein Amal Jouhar Tha What the knife is to cankerous growths, to all untruth was he, His actions, in life’s mirror shone like light, vibratingly.

Jo Bharosa Tha Usse Quwwat-e-Bazoo Par Tha Hai Tumhain Mout Ka Dar, Uss Ko Khuda Ka Dar Tha If he was confident of aught, It was his right arm’s might, He feared but God, while thoughts of death your craven souls affright.

Baap Ka Ilm Na Bete Ko Agar Azbar Ho  Phir Pisar Qabil-e-Miraas-e-Pidar Kyunkar Ho! When sons, lacking their fathers’ worth, are neither skilled nor sage, With what deserving can they claim their fathers’ heritage?

Stanza (20)

Har Koi Mast-e-Mai-e-Zauq-e-Tan Asani Hai,  Tum Musalman Ho? Ye Andaaz-e-Musalmani Hai? he love of ease, like fumes of wine makes sots of you today, How dare you pass as Mussalmans? That is not Islam’s way?

Haidari Faqr Hai Ne Doulat-e-Usmani Hai Tum Ko Aslaaf Se Kya Nisbat-e-Rohani Hai? Nor Usman’s treasure‐chest you own, Nor Ali’s empty bowl, With spirits of such great forbears, What kinship has your soul?

Woh Zamane Mein Mu’azzaz The Musalman Ho Kar Aur Tum Khawar Huwe Taarik-e-Quran Ho Kar The honoured of their times, they lived, For theirs was true iman, You live disgraced, as having left the paths of AlQuran.

Stanza (21)

Tum Ho Apas Mein Ghazabnak, Woh Apas Mein Raheem Tum Khatakaar-o-Khatabeen, Woh Khata Posh-o-Kareem You roll the eye of mutual wrath, Their eye was ever kind; You err, for errors look, while they were generously blind.

Chahte Sub Hain Ke Hon Auj-e-Surayya Pe Muqeem, Pehle Waisa Koi Paida Tau Kare Qalb-e-Salim! Aspiring for the Pleiades, How simple it all seems! But let there first be hearts like theirs, To justify such dreams.

Takht-e-Faghfoor Bhi Un Ka Tha, Sareer-e-Ke Bhi Yunhi Baatain Hain Ke Tum Mein Woh Hameeyyat Hai Bhi? They reigned upon the Chinese throne, They wore the Persian crown: Where is that honour that they knew—Words are your whole renown.

Stanza (22)

Khudkushi Shewa Tumhara, Woh Ghayoor-o-Khuddar Tum Akhuwat Se Gurezan, Woh Akhuwat Pe Nisar They fought for honour, self‐respect, Yours the self‐slayer’s knife, You shun the ties of brotherhood, They cherished more than life.

Tum Ho Guftar Sarapa, Woh Sarapa Kirdar Tum Taraste Ho Kali Ko, Woh Gulistan Bah Kinar You can but weave the web of words, They did their deeds of might: You pine after a bud: they basked In gardens flower‐bright.

Ab Talak Yaad Hai Qoumon Ko Hikayat Un Ki Naqsh Hai Safah-e-Hasti Pe Sadaqat Un Ki The world remembers still the tales which hymn their bravery, And in their storied book of life shines their sincerity.

Stanza (23)

Misl-e-Anjum Ufaq-e-Qoum Pe Roshan Bhi Huwe But-e-Hindi Ki Mohabbat Mein Barhman Bhi Huwe Upon your nation’s sky you rose like stars of brilliant hue, The lure of India’s idols made even Brahmans out of you;

Shauq-e-Parwaz Mein Mehjoor-e-Nasheman Bhi Huwe Be-Amal The Hi Jawan, Deen-e-Se Badzan Bhi Huwe Drawn by the wander‐lust, you went a‐roving ‘from your nests: Slothful in good, your youth next learnt to doubt their faith’s behests;

In Ko Tehzeeb Ne Har Bande Se Azad Kiya La Ke Kaabe Se Sanamkhane Mein Abad Kiya ‘Enlightenment’ ensnared you all, and all your ‘fetters’ fell, The land of Kaʹba you forsook, In idol‐land to dwell!

Stanza (24)

Qais Zehmat Kash-e-Tanhai-e-Sehra Na Rahe  Shehr Ki Khaye Huwa, Bad Ye Pema Na Rahe! If longing Qais roams no more, but seeks the town again, Leaving the lonely desert wastes to share tile life 0f men,

Woh To Diwana Hai, Basti Mein Rahe Ya Na Rahe Ye Zaroori Hai Hijab-e-Rukh-e-Laila Na Rahe! Qais is mad: what if he dwells in town or wilderness? Yet from him Layla must not veil her face in bashfulness!

Gila-e-Jor Na Ho, Shikwa-e-Baidad Na Ho Ishq Azad Hai, Kyun Husn Bhi Azad Na Ho! Complain ye not of heart unkind nor speak of tyranny! When Love no bondage knows, then why should Beauty not be free?

Stanza (25)

Ehd-e-Nau Barq Hai, Aatish Zan-e-Har Khirman Hai Ayman Is Se Koi Sehra No Koi Gulshan Hai Each stack and barn it sets on fire, This lightning‐like New Age, Nor bowling wild nor garden gay escapes its flaming rage;

Is Nayi Aag Ka Aqwam-e-Kuhan Indhan Hai Millat-e-Khatam-e-Rusal (S.A.W.) Shaola Ba Perahan Hai This new fire feeds on fuel old,—The nations of the past, And they too burn to whom was sent God’s Messenger, the last.

Aaj Bhi Jo Baraheem (A.S.) Ka Imaan Paida Aag Kar Sakti Hai Andaz-e-Gulistan Paida But if the faith of Abraham there, once again, is born, Where leaps this flame, flowers will bloom, and laugh its blaze to scorn.

Stanza (26)

Dekh Kar Rang-e-Chaman Ho Na Pareshan Mali Koukab-e-Ghuncha Se Shakhain Hain Chamakne Wali Yet, let the gardener not be sad to see the garden’s plight, For soon its branches will be gay with buds, like stars of light;

Khas-o-Khashaak Se Hota Hai Gulistan Khali Gul Bar Andaaz Hai Khoon-e-Shuhada Ki Laali The withered leaves and weeds will pass, and all its sweepings old; For there, again, will martyr‐blood in roses red unfold.

Rang Gardoon Ka Zara Dekh Tau Unnabi Hai Yeh Nikalte Huwe Suraj Ki Ufaq Taabi Hai But look! a hint of russet hue, Brightening the eastern skies, The glow on yon horizon’s brow, Heralds a new sunrise.

Stanza (27)

Ummatain  Gulshan-e-Hasti Mein Samar Cheeda Bhi Hain Aur Mehroom-e-Samar Bhi Hain, Khazan Didah Bhi Hain In Life’s old garden nations lived who all its fruits enjoyed, While others longed in vain, while some the winter blasts destroyed;

Saikron Nakhl Hain, Kaheeda Bhi, Baleeda Bhi Hain Saikron Batan-e-Chaman Mein Abhi Poshida Bhi Hain Its trees are legion; some decay, While others flush with bloom, And thousands still their birth await, Hid in the garden’s womb;

Nakhl-e-Islam Namoona Hai Bru-Mandi Ka Phal Hai Ye Saikron Saalon Ki Chaman Bandi Ka A symbol of luxuriance, The Tree of Islam reigns, Its fruits achieved with centuries of garden‐tending pains.

Stanza (28)

Pak Hai Gard-e-Watan Se Sirr-e-Daman Tera Tu Woh Yousaf Hai Ke Har Misr Hai Kinaan Tera Your robe is free from dust of home, Not yours such narrow ties, That Yousuf you, who Canaan sweet, In every Egypt lies;

Qafila Ho Na Sake Ga Kabhi Weeran Tera Ghair Yak Bang-e-Dara Kuch Nahin Saman Tera The qafila can ne’er disperse You holdest the starting bells9 Nothing else is needed, if your will Your onward march impels.

Nakhl-e-Shama Asti-o-Dar Shaola Dawad Resha-e-Tu Aaqbat Soz Bawad Saya-e-Andesha-e-Tu You candle‐tree! your wick‐like root, Its top with flame illumes, Your thought is fire, its very breath all future care consumes.

Stanza (29)

Tu Na Mit Jaye Ga Iran Ke Mit Jane Se Nasha-e-Mai Ko Ta’aluq Nahin Pemane Se And you will suffer no surcease should Iran’s star decline, It is not the vessel which decides the potency of wine;

Hai Ayan Yorish-e-Tataar Ke Afsane Se Pasban Mil Gaye Kaabe Ko Sanam Khane Se It is proved to all the world, from tales of Tartar conquerors, The Kaʹba brave defenders found in temple‐worshippers.

Kashti-e-Haq Ka Zamane Mein Sahara Tu Hai Asr-e-Nau Raat Hai, Dhundla Sa Sitara Tu Hai In you relies the bark of God, Adrift beyond the bar, The new‐born age is dark as night, And you its dim pole‐star.

Stanza (30)

Hai Jo Hangama Bipa Yorish-e-Balghari Ka Ghafilon Ke Liye Pegham Hai Baidari Ka The Bulgars march! the fiend of war in fearful fury breathes; The message comes: “Sleepers, awake! The Balkan cauldron seethes.”

Tu Samajhta Hai Ye Saman Hai Dil Aazari Ka Imtihan Hai Tere Isaar Ka, Khud-Dari Ka You deem this a cause of grief,Your heart is mortified; But no, your pride, your sacrifice, Thus, once again, are tried.

Kyun Harasan Hai Saheel-e-Faras-e-Aada Se Noor-e-Haq Bujh Na Sake Ga Nafs-e-Aada Se Beneath your foes if chargers neigh? Why tremble you in fright? For never, never, shall their breath extinguish Heaven’s light.

Stanza (31)

Chashme-e-Aqwam Se Makhfi Hai Haqiqat Teri Hai Abhi Mehfil-e-Hasti Ko Zaroorat Teri Not yet have other nations seen what you are truly worth, The realm of Being has need of you for perfecting this earth.

Zinda Rakhti Hai Zamane Ko Hararat Teri Koukab-e-Qismat-e-Imkan Hai Khilafat Teri If anything yet keeps world alive, ‘It is yours impetuous zeal, And you will rise its ruling star, And you will shape its weal.

Waqt-e-Fursat Hai Kahan, Kaam Abhi Baqi Hai Noor-e-Touheed Ka Itmam Abhi Baqi Hai This is no time for idle rest, Much yet remains undone; The lamp of tawhid needs your touch to make it shame the sun!

Stanza (32)

Misl-e-Bu Qaid Hai Ghunche Mein, Preshan Ho Ja Rakht Bar Dosh Hawaye Chamanistan Ho Ja You are like fragrance in the bud, Diffuse yourself: be free. Perfume the garden breeze, and fill the earth with scent of you..

Hai Tunk Maya To Zarre Se Byaban Ho Ja Naghma-e-Mouj Se Hangama-e-Toofan Ho Ja! From dusty speck, do you increase to trackless desert‐main. From a faint breeze, a tempest grow, Become a hurricane!

Quwwat-e-Ishq Se Har Past Ko Bala Kar De Dehr Mein Ism-e-Muhammad (S.A.W.) Se Ujala Kar De Raise you, through Love, all humble to greatness and to fame; Enlighten you the groping world with dear Muhammad’s Name.

Stanza (33)

Ho Na Ye Phool To Bulbul Ka Tarannum Bhi Na Ho Chaman-e-Dehr Mein Kaliyon Ka Tabassum Bhi Na Ho If this fair flower blossom not, The bulbul will not sing, Nor rose‐buds make the garden smile welcoming in the spring;

Ye Na Saqi Ho To Phir Mai Bhi Na Ho, Khum Bhi Na Ho Bazm-e-Touheed Bhi Dunya Mein Na Ho, Tum Bhi Na Ho If he is not the saki, then nor jar nor wine will be, Nor in this world will tawhid shine, Nor your heart beat in you;

Khema Aflak Ka Istada Issi Naam Se Hai Nabz-e-Hasti Tapish Aamadah Issi Naam Se Hai Yonder ethereal skyey tent, This great name still sustains, And dancing to its music, flows the blood in Life’s own veins.

Stanza (34)

Dasht Mein, Daman-e-Kuhsar Mein, Maidan Mein Hai Behr Mein, Mouj Ki Aghosh Mein, Toofan Mein Hai It is in the forests and the hills, And on the tranquil plains, On the seas, in the arms of waves, In roar of hurricanes;

Cheen Ke Shehr, Maraqash Ke Byaban Mein Hai Aur Poshida Musalman Ke Iman Mein Hai A music heard in China’s towns, Morocco’s desert‐song, And hid within each Muslim’s heart, It makes his faith grow strong.

Chashm-e-Aqwam Ye Nazara Abad Tak Dekhe Riffat-e-Shan-e-‘Rafaana La Ka Zikrak’ Dekhe Let all the peoples of the world see till the end of time, How I have made this glorious name beyond all thought sublime!

Stanza (35)

Mardam-e-Chashm-e-Zameen Yani Woh Kali Dunya Woh Tumhare Shuhada Palne Wali Dunya That pupil of the eye of Earth, Soil only dark men tread, That region where have always been your martyrs born and bred,

Garmi-e-Mehr Ki Parwarda Hilali Dunya Ishq Wale Jise Kehte Hain Bilali Dunya That land upon the hot sun’s lap, That land of al‐hilal, Which lovers fondly love to call The land of their Bilal,‐‐

Tapish Andoz Hai Iss Naam Se Paare Ki Tarah Ghouta Zan Noor Mein Hai Aankh Ke Tare Ki Tarah Is all a‐quiver with this Name, Like trembling mercury, Like pupils dark, in pools of light, It swims perpetually!

Stanza (36)

Aqal Hai Teri Sipar, Ishq Hai Shamsheer Teri  Mere Darvaish! Khilafat Hai Jahangeer Teri Your shield be wisdom, be your sword the flaming Love Divine, My fond dervish! do you not know that all the world is yours?

Ma Siwa Allah Ke Liye Aag Hai Takbeer Teri Tu Musalman Ho To Taqdeer Hai Tadbeer Teri All else but God is at your feet, If sounds your Takbeer great; If you a Muslim truly are, Your effort is your fate.

Shikwa Jawab E Shikwa By Allama Iqbal

Shikwa

Kyun Ziyaan Kaar Banun, Sood Framosh Rahun

Fikr-e-Farda Na Karun, Mahw-e-Ghum-e-Dosh Rahun

Naaley Bulbul Ke Sunoon, Aur Hama Tan Gosh Rahun

Humnawa Main Bhi Koi Gul Hun Ke Khamosh Rahun

Jurrat Aamoz Miri Taab-e-Sakhun Hai Mujh Ko

Shikwa Allah Se Khakam Badahan Hai Mujh Ko

Hai Baja Shewa-e-Tasleem Mein Mashoor Hain Hum

Qissa-e-Dard Sunate Hain Ke Majboor Hain Hum

Saaz-e-Khamosh Hain, Faryad Se Maamoor Hain Hum

Nala Ata Hai Agar Lab Pe To Maazoor Hain Hum

Ae Khuda Shikwa-e-Arbab-e-Wafa Bhi Sun Le

Khugar-e-Hamd Se Thora Sa Gila Bhi Sun Le

Thi To Maujood Azal Se Hi Teri Zaat-e-Qadim

Phool Tha Zaib-e-Chaman, Par Na Preshan Thi Shamim

Shart Insaaf Hai, Ae Sahib-e-Altaf-e-Amim

Boo-e-Gul Phailti Kis Tarah Jo Hoti Na Nasim

Hum Ko Jamiat-e-Khatir Ye Preshani Thi

Warna Ummat Tere Mehboob (S.A.W.) Ki Diwani Thi

Hum Se Pehle Tha Ajab Tere Jahan Ka Manzar

Kahin Masjood The Pathar, Kahin Maabood Shajar

Khugar-e-Paikar-e-Mahsoos Thi Insaan Ki Nazar

Manta Phir Koi Un-Dekhe Khuda Ko Kyunkar

Tujh Ko Maalum Hai Leta Tha Koi Naam Tera?

Quwwat-e-Baazoo-e-Muslim Ne Kiya Kaam Tera

Bas Rahe The Yahin Saljuq Bhi, Toorani Bhi

Ahl-e-Chin Cheen Mein, Iran Mein Sasaani Bhi

Issi Maamoore Mein Aabad The Yoonani Bhi

Issi Dunya Mein Yahudi Bhi The, Nusraani Bhi

Par Tere Naam Pe Talwar Uthai Kis Ne

Baat Jo Bigri Huwi Thi, Woh Banaai Kis Ne

The Hameen Ek Tire Maarka Aaraaon Mein!

Khushkion Mein Kabhi Larte, Kabhi Dariyaon Mein,

Deen Azaanen Kabhi Europe Ke Kaleesaaon Mein

Kabhi Africa Ke Tapte Huwe Sehraaon Mein.

Shan Ankhon Mein Na Jachti Thi Jahan Daron Ki

Kalima Parhte The Hum Chaon Mein Talwaron Ki

Hum Jo Jeete The To Jnagon Ki Musibat Ke Liye

Aur Merte The Tere Naam Ki Azmat Ke Liye

Thi Na Kuch Taeg-Zani Apni Hukumat Ke Liye Sar-Bakaf Phirte The Kya Dehar Mein Doulat Ke Liye Qaum Apni Jo Zar-o-Maal-e-Jahan Par Marti, But Faroshi Ke Iwaz But Shikni Kyon Karti?

Hadary fikr hay na daolat-e-Usmani hay

tum ko aslaf say kiya nisbat-e-rohani hay?

.

Woh zamanay mayn muazaz thay musalma’n ho kar

aur tum khwar huay tarik-e-quraa’n ho kar

.

Tum ho apas mayn gazab-nak woh apas mayn raheem

tum khata kar o khata-bee’n wo khata posh o kareem

.

Chahtay sab hain kay hon aooj-e-suraiya pe muqeem

pehlay waisa koi paida tuo karay qalb-e-saleem

.

Takht-e-Gafoor bhi unka tha sareer ke bhi

yun hi batain hain kay tum mayn woh hamiyat hay bhi!

.

Khudkushi shaywa tumhara woh gayoor o khud_dar

tum akhuwat say guraiza’n woh akhuwat pay nisar

.

Tum ho guftar sarapa wo sarapa kirdar

tum tarastay ho kali ko woh gulista’n baknar

Dil say jo baat nikalti hay asar rakhti hay

par nahi taqat-e-parwaz magar rakhti hay.Qudsi al-asl hay rifat pay nazar rakhti hay

khak say uthti hay gardoo’n pay nazar rakhti hay.Ishaq tha fitna gar o sarkash o chalak mera

asaman cheer gaya nala-e-bebak mera.

Peer-e-gardo’n nay kaha sun kay kahin hay koi

boley sayaree sar-e-arsh-e-bari’n hay koi.Chand kehta tha nahi’n ahl-e-zameen hay koi

kahkashan kehti thi poshida yahin hay koi.Kuch jo samgha koi shikway ko tuo rizwa’n samgha

mujh ko jannat say nikala hua insan samgha.Thi farishton ko bhi hairat kay yay awaz hay kiya

arsh walo’n pe bhi khoolta nahi yay raaz hay kiya.Ta sar-e-arsh bhi insan ki tag-o-taz hay kiya

Aa gayee khak ki chutki ko bhi parwaz hay kiya.Ghafil adaab say sukan-e-zameen kaisay hain

Shukh-o-gustakh yay pasti kay makeen kaisay hain?.Is qadar shukh kay Allah say bhi barham hay

tha jo masjud-e-mala’ek ye wohi Adam hay?.Alim-e-kaef hay dana-e-ramooz-e-kam hay

Ha’n! magar ajz kay asrar say na-mahram hay.Naaz hay taqat-e-guftar pay insano’n ko

baat karnay ka saleeqa nahi’n nadano’n ko.Aaee awaz gam angayz hay afsana tayra

ashk-e-baytab say labreez hay paimana tera.Aasman geer hua nara-e-mastana tera

kis qadar shukh ziban hay dil-e-diwana tera.Shukr shikway ko kiya husn-e-ada say tunay

ham sukhan kar diya bande ko khuda se tunay.Ham tuo mael ba karam hain koi saeil hi nahi’nrah dikhlai’n kisay rah-ro-e-manzil hi nahi’n.Tarbiyat aam to hay jowher-e-qabil hi nahi’n

jis say tameer ho Adam ki yeh wo gill hi nahi’n.Koi qabil ho tuo ham shan-e-kaee deetay hain

dhoondhnay walay ko dunya bhi nai datey hain.Hath be-zoor hain ilhad say dil kho-gar hain

umati baes-e-ruswai-e-paigambar hain.But sheekan uth gayay baqi jo rahay but-gar hain

tha Braheem pidar our pisar Aazir hain .badah ashaam nayee badah naya khum bhi nayee

harm-e-Kaba naya but bhi nayay tum bhi nayay.Woh bhi din thay kay yehi maya-e-raanai tha

nazish-e-maosam-gul lala-e-sehrai tha.Jo musalman tha Allah ka saudai tha

khabhi mahboob tumhara yehi harjai tha?.Kisi yakjaai say ab ahd-e-ghulami kar lo

milat-e-Ahmed-e-mursal ko muqami kar lo.Kis qadar tum pay gira’n subh ki bedari hay

ham se kab pyar hay ha’n neend tumhai’n pyari hay.Tab’a-e-azad pay quaid-e-ramaza’n bhari hay

tum hi keh do yehi aaeen-e-wafadari hay?.Qaum mazhab say hay mazhab jo nahi’n tum bhi nahi’n

jazb-e-baham jo nahi’n mehfil-e-anjum bhi nahi’n.Jin ko ata nahi’n dunya main koi fan tum ho

nahi’n jis qaum ko parwa-e-nasheeman tum ho.Bijliyan jis main hon asooda wo khurman tum ho

baech khatay hain jo aslaf kay madfan tum ho .honko naam jo khabro’n ki tijarat kar kay

kiya na baecho gay jo mill jayai’n sanam pathar kay.Safha-e-dahr say batil ko mitaya kis nay?

No-e-insa’n ko gulami say bachaya kis nay?.Mayray Kabay ko jabino’n say sajaya kis nay?

Mayray Qura’n ko seeno’n say lagaya kis nay?.Thay to aba woh tumharay hi magar tum kiya ho?

Hath per hath darhay muntazar-e-farda ho!.Kiya kaha? Behray musalma’n hay faqat wada-e-hoor

Shikwa beja bhi karay koi to lazim hay shaur.Adal hay fatir-e-hasti ka azal say dastoor

Muslim aae’n hua kafir to milay hoor-o-kasoor.Tum mayn huro’n ka koi chahnay wala hi nahi’n

jalwa-e-tur tuo maujud hay Musa hi nahi’n.Manfa_at aik hay is qaum ki nuqsaan bhi aikaik hi sab ka Nabi, deen bhi, eeman bhi aik.Harm pak bhi, Allah bhi, Quran bhi aik

Kuch badhi baat thi hotay jo musalma’n bhi aik?.Fiqra bandi hay kahee’n auor kahee’n zatain hain

kiya zamane mayn panapnay ki yehi baatai’n hai’n.Kaun hay tarik-e-aain-e-Rasool-e-mukhtar?

maslehat waqt ki hay kis ki amal ka mayar?.Kis ki ankho’n mayn samaya hay shuaar-e-agyar?

ho gayee kis ki nigah tarz-e-salaf say bayzaar?.Qalb mayn sooz nahi’n rooh mayn ahsas nahi’n

kuch bhi paighaam-e-Muhammad ka tumhai’n paas nahi’n.Ja kay hotay hain masajid mayn saf-aara tuo gareeb

zehmat-e-roza jo kartay hain gawara tuo gareeb.Naam layta hay ager koi hamara tuo gareeb

parda rakhta hay agar koi tumhara to gareeb.Umra nasha-e-daulat mayn hai’n ghafil ham say

zinda hay milat-e-baeza gurba kay dam say.Waaiz-e-qaum ki woh pukhtah khayali na rahi

barq tabeei na rahi sholah maqali na rahi.Reh gayee rasm-e-aza’n rooh-e-Bilali na rahi

falsafa reh gaya talqeen-e-Gazali na rahi.Masjidai’n marsiya-khwa’n hain kay namazi na rahe

yaani woh sahib-e-ausaf-e-Hajazi na rahay.Shoor hay ho gayay dunya say Musalma’n nabood

ham ye kehtay hain keh they bhi kahin Muslim maujud.oaz’a mayn tum ho nasara to tamadan main hanud

yeh Musalma’n hain jinhain dekh kar sharmai’n yahood.You’n tuo syed bhi ho mirza bhi ho afghani bhi

Tum sabhi kuch ho batao tuo Musaman bhi ho?.Dam-e-taqreer thi Muslim ki sadaqat baybak

adl iss ka tha qawi loos-e-maraat say pak.Shajr-e-fitrat-e-Muslim tha haya say namnak

tha shujaat main wo aik hasti fauqul adraq.Har musalma’n rug-e-batil kay liyay nishtar tha

is kay aaina-e-hasti mayn amal jauhar tha.Jo bharoosa tha issay quwat-e-bazu par tha

hy tumhain mout ka dar is ko khuda ka dar tha.Baap ka ilm na baytay ko ager azbar ho

phir pisar qabil-e-meeras-e-pidar kaun kar ho!.Har koi mast mayay zauq-e-tan asani hay

tum musalma’n ho yeh andaz-e-musalmani hay?.Hadary fikr hay na daolat-e-Usmani hay

tum ko aslaf say kiya nisbat-e-rohani hay?.Woh zamanay mayn muazaz thay musalma’n ho kar

aur tum khwar huay tarik-e-quraa’n ho kar.Tum ho apas mayn gazab-nak woh apas mayn raheem

tum khata kar o khata-bee’n wo khata posh o kareem.Chahtay sab hain kay hon aooj-e-suraiya pe muqeem

pehlay waisa koi paida tuo karay qalb-e-saleem.Takht-e-Gafoor bhi unka tha sareer ke bhi

yun hi batain hain kay tum mayn woh hamiyat hay bhi!.Khudkushi shaywa tumhara woh gayoor o khud_dar

tum akhuwat say guraiza’n woh akhuwat pay nisar.Tum ho guftar sarapa wo sarapa kirdar

tum tarastay ho kali ko woh gulista’n baknar
