***********

Tundi-e- Baad-E-Mukhalif se na ghabra, ae Uqaab;

Yeh to chalti hai tujhe uncha udane ke liye.

Translation:

“You don’t get frightened of these furious, violent winds, Oh Eagle!  These blow only to make you fly higher.”

Nahin tera nasheman Qasr-e-Sultani ke gumbad par;

Tu shahi hai, basera kar paharon ki chattano par.

Translation:

“You don’t have to make your nest on the dome of Queen’s palace,  Oh Eagle,  you are royal, choose to reside on the peaks of mountains.”

Khuda tujhe kissi toofan say ashna kar de;

Keh tere bahr ki mojon main iztirab naheen.

Translation:

“May God bless you with some storm!   Because the waves in your ocean (of self) are devoid of agitation (turmoil)”

Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqdeer se pehle

Khuda bande se khud pooche bata teri raza kya hai.

Translation:

“Elevate yourself so high that even God, before issuing every decree of destiny, should ask you: Tell me, what is your intent?”

  2. dhruvrathod says:

    Whatever u say,

    Everyday i read this khudi ko kar buland…..line

    I am Hindu….truth is i get inspiration.

    I DON’T CARE IQBAL WROTE THIS POETRY FOR Muslim OR FOR ALL….IF U COMMENT AFTER ME OR NOT…..I TAKE INSPIRATION EVERYDAY.
    THIS IS MY PERSPECTIVE

  3. Maqbool says:

    Tundi-e- Baad-E-Mukhalif se na ghabra, ae Uqaab

    This is not Iqbal’s

    This is Sadiq Hussains

  4. Rizwan Khan says:

    He wrote every single human bieng not only for the muslim.his quotes inspire the people apart their thinking and potence. there is no negativity in his prestigious teaching . His quotes encourages the one towards the destiny. I am totally inspired by his poetry everybody should read him and apply his teaching in his life.

  5. aarif says:

    KHUDI MEANS…. ROOH (SPIRIT)…..

  6. anurodh chitra says:

    you may take it in any perspective, whatever, ullama iqbal has written…is very inspirational..9410818645

  7. AMAR NATH PARCHA says:

    what a pity that lutfi shah said the poetry of the great Allama is from quraan. It is a big injustice against Allama and independent thinkers. Allama was free from all the establishments like so called religions .

  8. kiran says:

    Khudi means ‘zero selfishness’ right?

    • Being Selfish or unselfish (towards others) are two opposite poles of altruism based thought-line or ideology. Don’t confuse the ‘khudi’ with any of these ends. It is absolutely on a different plane.

      I believe that Allama Iqbal wanted to establish the worth of being actually ‘SELF’ completely devoid of self-related concepts or images which a man usually derives from other people’s concepts or images. When you peel off all the artificial or acquired layers of your-self, then you are left with true, pristine, original SELF of yours, i.e. KHUDI.

      It is not a spiritual or lofty idea. There are two articles in the same section, where you can have some deeper understanding about what it is about being your SELF or other people’s YOUR-SELF. I remind, it’s a very tight-rope walk.

    • AMAR NATH PARCHA says:

      Dear Kiran Khudi does not mean Zero Selfishness. It is eternal itselfness

  9. Lutfi Shah says:

    A true Muslim Poet Hazrat Allama Iqbal. All of his poetry is wake up call for the Muslims because his poetry is from Quraan.

    • Dear Mr. Lutfi, I’m personally a great admirer of Md.A.Iqbal’s poetry. For me he is a great poet who conveyed deep inspiring thoughts in Urdu for every human with conscience who is striving to awaken his full potential. I don’t think he ever wrote for muslims only, I believe that he wrote for each ‘Insaan’. Thanks.

    • Asim Ghani says:

      Iqbal’s poetry is NOT “from the Quran.” It is deeply influenced by it, yes, but so was the poetry of *all* our great poets, including Hindu poets.
      Those who make such ignorant, baseless and hate-driven claims don’t know that Pakistan’s first national anthem was written by poet Jagannath Azad (1924-2004), at the express instructions of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Azad’s “ai sarzameen-e paak” remained our national anthem until 1950–after the poet had to flee against his will, because of the riots.
      Let me refer to this couplet by Iqbal

      agar ho ishq to hai kufr bhi musalmaani,
      na hO to mard-e musalmaaN bhi kaafir o zindeeq.

      musalmaani: another word for Islam in Persian.
      zindeeq=kafir

  11. Motivational quotes do not need any adjectives of appreciation. By reading these/such qoutes one will certainly be motivated for creative activities. These are like best mantras in Hindu scriptures to guide the person in desired direction. Repetition of these quotes will change the attitude towards life and bestow enthusiasm and dynamism upon the individual. Such quotes are need of the day.

    Thx a lot 4 uploading d meaning of these stanzas, this is my favorite song…… i needed d meaning of few of these stanzas which u translated above

    ….thanks a lot

  13. Fahad says:

    Allama was perhaps the greatest poet of Urdu history…..his narration…..his poetic style & his religious perspective and distinctive qualities of honor, pride and ambition is an enigmatic source of inspiration to the millions who read his work. Not only is he a preacher of religion, but also the inspirational perception the led to the creation of Pakistan. He may have left for heavenly abode many years ago, but his convincing and influential is the continuation of his great legacy.

    • Asim Ghani says:

      Iqbal was “a preacher of religion”?
      It so happens that Iqbal hated “preachers of religion.”
      maiN jaanta hooN anjaam uska,
      jis maarke meN mulla ho ghaazi.
      …..
      dil hai musalmaaN mera na tera,
      too bhi namaazi, maiN bhi namaazi.

      It’s fine for you to display your utter ignorance, but please don’t insult Iqbal
