O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered- Muhammed Iqbal

 

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered
Of which sky was it, that you are now a fallen star?
You were nurtured in the loving care of such a people
Who trampled Crowns of Royalty under their feet.

 

 

They established exalted civilizations, Providing law (Shariah) and Leadership
Those deserted folk from Arabia, who cradled their camels.

 

 

Their pride was in their glorious deeds and their simplicity
Why would such a beautiful face feel the need for moles and art?

 

 

They lived their lives for Allah with such modest
With such pride, that the generous dare not give them alms.

 

 

Upon impulse, what can I say to you, Regarding who were those desert folk
Except , Conquerors, Emperors, Protectors and illumination of the world.

 

 

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered
Of which sky was it, that you are now a fallen star?
You were nurtured in the loving care of such a people
Who trampled Crowns of Royalty under their feet.

 

 

If I wish, I could take those visions and put them into words
Perhaps that spectacle would be far better than all of your thoughts.

 

 

You cannot claim any relationship with your Forefathers
You merely speak while they acted, You stay rooted while they went out forth

 

 

Why weep over the loss of governance. It was just a World affair
In the sight of the World, there is no other remedy except from the Muslims

 

 

Alas! Those pearls of knowledge, the books by our forefathers
To see them made use of in Europe, ones heart become filled with grief.

 

 

O Muslim youth, have you ever stopped and pondered
Of which sky was it, that you are now a fallen star?
You were nurtured in the loving care of such a people
Who trampled Crowns of Royalty under their feet.
