Mehdi - Zarb-e-Kaleem Allama Iqbal Poetry

Mehdi – Zarb-e-Kaleem | Allama Iqbal Poetry | مہدی

Mehdi

مہدی

 

قوموں کی حیات ان کے تخیل پہ ہے موقوف
یہ ذوق سکھاتا ہے ادب مرغ چمن کو

Qoumon Ki Hayat In Ke Takhiyyul Pe Hai Mouqoof
Ye Zauq Sikhata Hai Adab Murgh-e-Chaman Ko

A nationʹs life gets much prolonged by lofty aims and ideals high:
If dwellers here some zeal possess, they can explore the heights of sky.

 

مجذوب فرنگی نے بہ انداز فرنگی
مہدی کے تخیل سے کیا زندہ وطن کو

Majzoob-e-Farangi Ne Ba Andaz-e-Farangi
Mehdi Ke Takhiyyul Se Kiya Zinda Watan Ko

The Frankish Sage by guile and skill new lease of life to nation gave:
The path for birth of Superman by valour great he strove to pave.

 

اے وہ کہ تو مہدی کے تخیل سے ہے بیزار
نومید ۂ کر آہوئے مشکیں سے ختن کو

Ae Woh Ke Tu Mehdi Ke Takhiyyul Se Hai Bezar
Naumeed Na Kar Ahuye Mushkeen Se Khutan Ko

To Guideʹs concept you seem averse, too fed up with this thought appear:
This view for Muslims has the weight that for Cathay has musk of deer.

 

ہو زندہ کفن پوش تو میت اسے سمجھیں
یا چاک کریں مردک ناداں کے کفن کو؟

Ho Zinda Kafan Posh To Mayyat Use Samjhain
Ya Chaak Karain Mardak-e-Nadan Ke Kafan Ko?

If man alive puts on the shroud, must we take that ass for dead:
Or tear to pieces small and shreds his shroud and cast away the threads?

(Mehdi)
