    Allama Iqbal's Poetry

    Iqbal is the second best poet in urdu. First is Mirza Ghalib.
    Iqbals era was from 1900 to 1950. Most of his work is like goes on top of your head. But I bought a big book explaining his work and poetry. Ill share one or two. And if you have some please share.

    Re: Allama Iqbal's Poetry

    We have an awards ceremony every year in school and each year people win awards for exceling in certain subjects
    This year a man was here doing a speech and he was a pakistani, he said an allama iqbal sher,



    Khud ko kar itna buland ay bande ke khuda bi puche teri raza kya hai

    I said that at the top of my head, i might have said it wrong but im sure it was like that

    Nice inni

        Re: Allama Iqbal's Poetry

        Unfortunately, I don't understand Urdu or the Farsi he wrote in (I hope I haven't mixed the Farsi up with someone else...), but here is one of my favourite of the works of Iqbal that I have come across (I admit, this is little)...

        "A heart which accepts clay as an associate
        Begins to take pleasure in sleep without delay,
        It wakes up whenever it creates the self,
        But when the self becomes a slave to the body,
        The heart dies."


        If you need it explaining, I can do tha for you, as I've got the explanation to go with it.
        Ya Muqallib al-Quloob, thabbit qalbi 'alaa Deenik
        O' Converter of Hearts, make my heart steadfast upon Thy Way
        We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

          Um, what does "Allamah" mean? I've always wondered about the precise meaning... Does it mean respected?

            This is another old favourite quote:

            But only a brief moment is granted to the brave one breath or two, whose wage is the long nights of the grave.
            Ya Muqallib al-Quloob, thabbit qalbi 'alaa Deenik
            O' Converter of Hearts, make my heart steadfast upon Thy Way
            We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

                ^ Ah, but don't many Shuyookh say he wasn't a scholar, but just a learned poet and philosopher?

                    Ki Muhammad :saw: se wafa tune, to hum tere hain,
                    Yeh Jahan cheez hai kya, Lawh o Qalam tere hain.

                    I think thats Allamah Iqbals.

                    Also:

                    Aaj woh Kashmeer hai mahkoom o majboor o faqeer,
                    Kal jissey Ahl e Nazar kehthey the Iran e Sagheer.


                    I think that's one aswell.

                      ^ Hmm, I see. I just asked because that's what I read; funnily, I was reading some extracts (extracts because I really should be reading some other books) from a book I have on him and his works, recently.

                              never heard of mirza ghalib but i like allamah iqbals poetry. its really meaningful.
