aqal o dil | Urdu Poetry

Poet : allama-iqbal
aqal o dil
Aqal Ne Aik Din Ye Dil Se Kaha
Bhoole Bhatke Ki Rahnuma Hun Main

One day reason said to the heart:
‘I am a guide for those who are lost.

Hun Zameen Par, Guzr Falak Pe Mera
Dekh To Kis Qadar Rasa Hun Main

I live on earth, but I roam the skies—
just see the vastness of my reach.

Kaam Dunya Mein Rahbari Hai Mera
Misl-e-Khizr-e-Khajasta Pa Hun Main

My task in the world is to guide and lead,
I am like Khizr of blessed steps.

Hun Mufassir-e-Kitab-e-Hasti Ki
Mazhar-e-Shan-e-Kibriya Hun Main

I interpret the book of life,
And through me Divine Glory shines forth.

Boond Ek Khoon Ki Hai Tu Lekin
Ghairat-e-Laal-e-Be Baha Hun Main

You are no more than a drop of blood,
While I am the envy of the priceless pearl!

Dil Ne Sun Kar Kaha Ye Sub Sach Hai
Par Mujhe Bhi To Dekh, Kya Hun Main

The heart listened, and then said: ‘This is all true,
But now look at me, And see what I am.

Raaz-e-Hasti Ko Ti Samajhti Hai
Aur Ankhon Se Dekhta Hun Main!

You penetrate the secret of existence,
But 1 see it with my eyes.

Hai Tujhe Wasta Mazahir Se
Aur Batin Se Ashna Hun Main

You deal With the outward aspect of things,
I know what lies within.

Ilm Tujh Se To Maarifat Mujh Se
Tu Khuda Joo, Khuda Numa Hun Main

Knowledge comes from you, gnosis from me;
You seek God, I reveal Him

Ilm Ki Intiha Hai Betaabi
Iss Marz Ki Magar Dawa Hun Main

Attaining the ultimate in knowledge only makes one restless—
I am the cure for that malady

Shama Tu Mehfil-e-Sadaqat Ki
Husn Ki Bazm Ka Diya Hun Main

You are the candle of the Assembly of Truth;
1 am the lamp of the Assembly of Beauty

Tu Zaman-o-Makan Se Rishta Bapa
Taeer-e-Sidra Se Ashna Hun Main

You are hobbled by space and time,
While I am the bird in the Lotus Tree.

Kis Bulandi Pe Hai Maqam Mera
Arsh Rab-e-Jaleel Ka Hun Main!

My status is so high—
I am the throne of the God of Majesty!
