So here we goooo ” Dayar-e-ishq mein apna maqam paida kar
Naya zamana,nayi subah-o-shaam paida kar”
My meaning: Create your own status or place in the field that you love, here ishq is not “ishq-ishq” but the ishq is your passion towards something. Create your own era, days and nights. As in, I think, be sooo good at whatever you do that people will remember you even after you are gone. Like now how we say “Mughal’s era, nizam’s era” etc etc.
“Khuda agar dil-e-fitrat shahnas de tujhko
sakoot-e-laalah-o-gul se kalaam paida kar”
Literal meaining is that if God gives you the heart that understands the nature then from the silence of tulips and roses create your poetry. What I understood from this is, if you’ve the ability of speech and power then be te voice of the people who remain unheard or are ignored.
“Utha na sheesha giran -e-firang ka ehsaan
sifaal-e-hind se mina-o-jaam paida kar”
Not sure about this. Sheesha is glass/mirror, giran is one who breaks it, firang is the firanggi gorey 😛 that is britishers, So here, Dr. Iqbal advises his son to not to be dependent on the firangi but create your cup and drink from the Indian soil. Hmmm matlab, do not depend on others to give opportunities but create one for yourself.
“Mein shaak-e-taak hoon, meri ghazal hai meri samar
mere samar se mai-e-laala faam paida kar”
This went totally bouncer on me *boinkkkk* So i’ll let you know how others interpreted it “My songs are the grapes on the spray of my vine; Distil from their clusters the poppy-red wine!”
“Meri tareeq ameeri nai faqeeri hai
Khudi na bech ghareebi mein naam paida kar”
My pursuit is not wealth but faqeeri it can be either like he is contented with whatever he has or he is contented with the closeness of God (coz faqeeri in sufism means closeness to Allah). I dont require the worldly wealth I’m happy with whatever I have or I’m happy with being close to God.
Don’t sell yourself to get what you desire but fight for it with whatever you have. Matlab, if you really want something do not sell yourself that is do not stoop too low to get it, if u really desire it fight for it. 🙂
As I already said before, your views might clash with mine so please be kind enough to not to bombard me with your views, and be polite enough to correct me if I’m wrong. Jazak’Allah 🙂
