Nukta-e-Touheed – Zarb-e-Kaleem | Allama Iqbal Poetry | نکتۂ توحید


نکتۂ توحید


بیاں میں نکتۂ توحید آ تو سکتا ہے
ترے دماغ میں بت خانہ ہو تو کیا کہیے

Byan Mein Nukta-e-Touheed Aa To Sakta Hai
Tere Damagh Mein Butkhana Ho To Kya Kahiye

The subtle point in Godʹs Oneness hid with ease in words we can explain;
But what about your mind unsound that brims with myths and idols vain?


وہ رمز شوق کہ پوشیدہ لاالٰہ میں ہے
طریق شیخ فقیہانہ ہو تو کیا کہیے

Woh Ramz-e-Shouk Ke Poshida La Ilaha Mein Hai
Tareeq-e-Sheikh Faqeeh Na Ho To Kya Kahiye

The Elder of the Shrine has traits that smack of juristʹs faith and creed:
Much thirst for view ‘No god but He,’ among his fellows cannot breed.


سرور جو حق و باطل کی کارزار میں ہے
تو حرب و ضرب سے بیگانہ ہو تو کیا کہیے

Suroor Jo Haq-o-Batil Ki Karzaar Mein Hai
Tu Harb-o-Zarb Se Begana Ho To Kya Kahiye

None can appraise the glee one gets, when war is on ’twixt good and bad:
He who canʹt inflict deadly blows and strokes in war is never glad.


جہاں میں بندۂ حر کے مشاہدات ہیں کیا
تری نگاہ غلامانہ ہو تو کیا کہیے

Jahan Mein Banda-e-Hur Ke Mashidaat Hain Kya
Teri Nigah Ghulamana Ho To Kya Kahiye

Observations made by free born men in world with marvels so replete;
To those who own the glance of thralls none can such wonders ʹfore them repeat.


مقام فقر ہے کتنا بلند شاہی سے
!روش کسی کی گدایانہ ہو تو کیا کہیے

Maqam-e-Faqr Hai Kitna Buland Shahi Se
Rawish Kisi Ki Gadayana Ho To Kya Kahiye!

A dervish holds a loftier rank than a monarch who wears a crown;
There is no cure for such a man, who, like paupers, has sunk down.
