Divided each from each, Lives every Mussalman.

Manfa’at Aik Hai Is Qaum Ki, Nuqsan Bhi Aik
Ek Hi Sab Ka Nabi ﷺ, Din Bhi, Iman Bhi Aik

Your nation’s weal, your nation’s woe, In common you all share,
Your Prophet ﷺ 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?

PROPHET MUHAMMAD ﷺ, THE FOCAL POINT OF UNIVERSE AND OUR LIVES!

masjid-nabawi-3

ہو نہ يہ پھول تو بلبل کا ترنم بھی نہ ہو
چمن دہر ميں کليوں کا تبسم بھی نہ ہو
يہ نہ ساقی ہو تو پھرمے بھی نہ ہو، خم بھی نہ ہو
بزم توحيد بھی دنيا ميں نہ ہو، تم بھی نہ ہو

Ho Na Ye Phool To Bulbul Ka Tarannum Bhi Na Ho
Chaman-e-Dehr Mein Kaliyon Ka Tabassum Bhi Na Ho
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 this fair flower (Muhammad) blossom not, the nightingale will not sing,
Nor rose‐buds make the garden of era smile welcoming in the spring,
If he is not the quencher, then nor jar nor wine will be,
Nor in this world will Tawheed (Oneness of God) shine, Nor your heart beat in you!

(salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

– Allama Iqbal rahimahullah –

Khudi Ki Jalwaton Mein Mustafai (Bal-e-Jibril-094)

 Khudi Ki Jalwaton Mein Mustafai
Khudi Ki Khalwaton Mein Kibriyai

Selfhood in the world of men is prophethood;
Selfhood in solitude is godliness;

Zameen-o-Asman-o-Kursi-o-Arsh
Khudi Ki Zad Mein Hai Sari Khudai!

The earth, the heavens, the great empyrean,
Are all within the range of selfhoodʹs power.
