Iqbal – Poet, Philosopher, Politician, and The Dreamer


Lab pe aati hai dua ban k tamanna meri… Zindagi Shamma ki sura ho khudaya meri

This is the very first poem I remember Iqbal for, the lines that appeal me most from the primary school age till now are ‘Zindagi ho meri parwaney ki surat Ya Rab! Ilm ki shamma se ho mujhko muhaabat Ya Rab!

Allama Iqbal one of the praiseworthy philosophers, world’s history ever witnessed. Iqbal praised as ‘poet of East’, ‘Revolutionary politician’, and ‘aspiring philosopher’ and many other good and worthy titles. However, I always inspire and admire Iqbal – The Dreamer.

Iqbal used all of his blessings to make a group of people a nation. He used his imaginations to dream, his dares to stand for that dream, his strength to admire others to his dream and courage to make it come true. Iqbal was a poet, lawyer, philosopher, and politician; but above all that Iqbal was the keen dream. The thing that makes him stand out of rest is his devotion to make his dream come true.

We, while pretending ‘being practical’, often lost and overlooked the beauty of imaginations and dreams. We admire people for their success we see but often overlooked to have a high regard for that beautiful dream or absurd imagination that is sole foundation of the success.

When I thought of imaginations, dreams and courage to made dreams come true, the first person I thought of is Iqbal. A man who dreamed for his nation and his virtues made the dream come true. Iqbal should be the inspiration for every Pakistani. Every Pakistani must have an imagination to dream and courage to make it come true and should not let ourselves to die, wander, and distract from their visions, the vision of a better Pakistani, and the vision for a prosperous Pakistan.

‘Nations are born in hearts of poets; they prosper and die in the hands of politicians.’ (Iqbal)

Today, on Iqbal’s 73rd death anniversary lets all us pledge to be a good Muslims, a good Pakistani and above all a very good human.

My Pen’s Code of Conduct


Although blogging is just free style writing, but still my pen follows a code of conduct. I believe there should be discipline in way for life, so blogging. Discipline is the key to success; it defines your code of conduct. Here is the code of conduct of pen.

It avoids using superlatives, especially the word ‘GREATEST’ for any person or personality but Almighty Allah. Only He in this universe worth defined as GREATEST.

It gives credit only where it is due.

It writes what my heart feels, not what is appealing to others.

It always writes in way to educate; sometime about things, sometimes happenings and sometime experiences.

In writing, it includes those who I truly care for.

It avoids conspiracies.

It controls it pace to be rude or sometimes brutal.

It cares for others’ feeling, freedom and sentiments.

It resects others’ words, feelings, religions, views and standpoints.

It appreciates critics.

It writes to motivate not for money.

It uses ALWAYS and NEVER with delicate care.

And,

It loves to carve on its readers’ mind.

Unfortunately, we lost the semi-final at Mohali. However, what we won is more than just a cricket match. Pakistanis all around the world are proud on their heroes. Shahid Khan Afridi and rest of the team played united against India. In world cup 2011, Pakistan played well and reached in top four countries. We may be lost the match, but we won the unity, team spirit, and being one nation.

Green flag furled on the other side of border, Pakistan National Anthem played on their land with respect and honor. What if we would not conquered, we fought, and fought with enormous spirit like a team – one for all and all for one.

As Bonaparte used to say, a leader is dealer is hope; so, our captain in hard times. Afridi kept the team united. In true words, captain’s hard work is responsible team’s outstanding performance throughout the world cup ’11. However, we have lost two matches; one against India and another against New Zealand, but still we have won more of we played.

Losing is also part of game. What if we lost, we still salute our captain and the boys. We are still proud on greens.

Team Pakistan, We love you.
