faarsi original sung beautifully by saif akram, Tajikistan

از خوابِ گَراں خیز ۔ محمّد اِقبال

 

ائے غنچہ خوابیدہ چو نرگس نگراں خیز

کاشانۂ ما رفت بتاراجِ غماں خیز

از نالہ مُرغِ چمن، از بانگِ اذاں خیز

از گرمیٔ ہنگامۂ آتش نفساں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

 

خورشید کہ  پیرا یہ بسیماے سحر بست

آویزہ بگوشِ سحر از خونِ جگر بست

از دشت و جبل قافلہ ہا رختِ سفر بست

ائے چشمِ جہاں بیں بہ تماشائے جہاں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

 

خاور ہمہ مانندِ غبارِ سرِ راہے است

یک نالہ خاموش و اثر باختہ آہے است

ہر ذرّۂ ایں خاک گرہ خوردہ نگاہے است

از ہند و سمر قند و عراق و ہمداں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

 

دریاے تو دریاست کہ آسودہ چو صحراست

دریاے تو دریاست کہ افزوں نشد و کاست

بیگانۂ آشوب و نہنگ است چہ دریاست!

از سینۂ چاکش صفتِ موجِ رواں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

 

ایں نکتہ کشا ئندۂ اسرارِ نہان است

ملک است تنِ خاکی و دیں روحِ روان است

تن زندہ و جاں زندہ زِ ربطِ تن و جان است

با خرقہ و سجّادہ و شمشیر و سناں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

 

ناموسِ ازل را تو امینی تو امینی !

داراے جہاں را تو یساری تو یمینی

ائے بندۂ خاکی تو زمانی تو زمینی

صہبائے یقیں در کش و از دیرِ گماں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

 

فریاد زِ افرنگ و دِل آویزیِ افرنگ

فریاد زِ شیرینی و پرویزیِ افرنگ

عالم ہمہ ویرانہ زِ چنگیزیِ افرنگ

معمارِ حرم !  باز بہ  تعمیرِ جہاں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں،  خوابِ  گَراں، خوابِ گَراں خیز

از خوابِ گَراں خیز!

از خوابِ گَراں خیز ۔ محمّد اِقبال ۔ اُردو ترجمہ ۔ شاہد

 

ائے غنچۂ خوابیدہ، دیدۂ بینا کی طرح جاگ

تاراج ہوا جاتا ہے گھر خواب سے تو جاگ

مرغانِ چمن گاتے ہیں، دیتے ہیں اذاں جاگ

ہے جوشِ میں ہنگامۂ آتش نفساں جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

 

خورشید کا رُخ صبح کی رونق سے سجا ہے

آویزۂ خونِ جگر  سحر کے کانوں میں پڑا ہے

اب قافلۂ دشت و جبل رختِ سفر باندھ چلا ہے

دنیا کا سما دیکھ توُ فہمیدہ نظر لا، نیند سے اب جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

 

مشرق ہمہ مانندِ غبارِ سرِ راہ ہے

اِک نالہ خاموش ہے جِس کا نہ اثر ہے

ہر ذرّہ ہے وہ آنکھ کہ  پٹّی سی بندھی ہے

ائے ساکنِ ہند اور سمر قند و عراق و ہمداں جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

 

دریا ترا آسودہ  ہے بہتا تو نہیں ہے

دریا ترا دریا ہے جو بڑھتا بھی نہیں ہے

دریا ترا بیگانۂ آشوب و نہنگ ہے

کر چاک گریباں مثلِ موجِ رواں جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

 

نکتہ ہے یہ وہ جِس سے عیاں رازِ  نہاں ہے

ہے خاک بدن، دین مگر روحِ رواں ہے

زندہ ہے توُ اُس وقت کہ ربطِ تن و جاں ہے

سجّادہ بغل میں، شمشیر و سناں ہاتھ لئے جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

 

ناموسِ ازل کا تو امیں ہے تو امیں ہے

تو قوّتِ بازو ہے خلیفہ بھی تو ہی ہے

ائے خاک کے بندے یہ ترا قیدِ زمان اور زمیں ہے

صہبائے یقیں پی، دیرِ گماں چھوڑ کے اب جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

 

افرنگ سے ہوشیار دِل آویزیِ ہے اُس کی

شیرینی و ِ پرویز ی بھی سیرت میں ہے اُس کی

عالم ہمہ ویراں جو ہے چنگیزی ہے اُس کی

معمارِ حرم! تعمیرِ جہاں واسطے اب جاگ

ائے خواب میں کھوئے ہوئے اِنساں تو ذرا جاگ

اب خواب سے تو جاگ

az Khwaab-e garaaN Khez – mohammed iqbal
from (your) deep sleep, rise
urdu translation by shahed

Click here for overall comments and on any passage for meanings and discussion.  The title of this composition “Rise from your deep slumber” is intriguingly close to josh malihabadi’s “nau-e bashar jaag”. The latter is a universal call to action – a call to all humanity to discard superstition and received wisdom. Iqbal’s poem is a call for muslims to wake up. That in itself might have been fine if it had not been combined with, “shamshir o sinaaN haath liye jaag”. Iqbal creates/propagates the picture of strife loving muslim.

O unopened, sleeping flower, wake up and look at what is going on with a discerning eye. Wake up, your home is being destroyed. The birds of the garden sing and call you to action. There is enthusiastic commotion around you and people are breathing fire while you are lost in a deep slumber. Wake up.

The brow of the sun is shines/is happy at the beauty of the morning. Red ear-bobs dangle from the ears of Dawn. The caravan is ready to set out on its adventure/exploration of hills and the wilderness. It has gathered its travel provisions. Look at the scenery around you, bring a sight that can understand (what is going on). O you who are lost in sleep, wake up. Wake up.

All East is like the dust left behind in the pathway (while the caravan moves on). It is like a silent cry that has no effect. It is as if every particle is blindfolded. O people of India, Samarqand, Iraq and Iran, wake up. While the words are “people of India”, clearly, Iqbal means “Muslims of India”. While it is international, it is international sectarianism quite unlike josh’s universal humanism (nau-e bashar jaag). O you who are lost in sleep, wake up. Wake up.

1.calm, still 2.unfamiliar 3.pain, struggle 4.crocodile, danger 5.tear 6.collar 7.similar to, like 8.flowing wave
The flow of life is likened to the flow of a river. Your life is stagnant, unchanging, it does not flow. Your river (of life) is like a river that does not rise/flow. Your life is unfamiliar with struggle and (overcoming) danger. Tear you collar (a sign of daring, not caring for the consequences) and flow like a wave (of action). O you who are lost in sleep, wake up. Wake up.

This (which I am about to say) point of view reveals the hidden secret that the body may be of clay but faith is like a moving spirit. As long as there is a connection between body and soul/faith you are alive (when that connection is broken, you may be breathing, but you are not alive). With you prayer mat under your arm and sword and spear in hand, rise. (iqbal is contributing to the image of the strife loving Muslim – also see Stanzas 5 and 9 in iqbal’s shikwa). O you who are lost in sleep, wake up. Wake up.

You are the keeper of the honour of eternal law (the Quran). You are the strong right arm (enforcer) of this eternal law (of god). You are the representative of god on earth (according to Quranic narration when Adam was created god asked all creatures to bow to him, designating him as his “Khalifa”, representative). You are now just a creature of clay imprisoned by time and space (without soul). (If you want to get your soul back) drink the wine of faith and leave the house of illusion/superstition aside. O you who are lost in sleep, wake up. Wake up.
