The celebrations on Iqbal Day have also decreased, Iqbal’s understanding is also decreasing, disinterest in Iqbal’s message is also increasing. Get, or get their message out to others, or get interested in their word.
A similar function was held at Ghotvi Hall of Islamia University Bahawalpur yesterday. The guest speaker was Prof. Khawaja Muhammad Zakaria, who had come from Lahore specially for the occasion. The audience included teachers, intellectuals, citizens and students. Khawaja Sahib shed light on the prose and poetry of Allama Iqbal in a very neat and orderly manner.
He said that in objective poetry, usually the purpose becomes more prominent, the poetry is suppressed, that is why the poets who bring purpose in poetry are not very successful, but Allama Iqbal has the perfection that his poetry also He is at his best and there is no shortage of goals.
In Iqbal’s speech, most attention has been paid to the condition of Muslims. He wanted the Islamic nation to unite and solve its own problems. They should not look to the nations of the West for their own good.
Much of his poetry also focuses on the individual training of Muslims. The “man of faith” is also wanted by Allama Iqbal. He calls those who have been trained as a result of collective training as men of faith, who follow the commands of Allah and His Messenger, and keep pace with the times. ۔
Allama Iqbal’s self was described by Khawaja Zakaria as a personality, but the personality is not the one in which the suit and boots look very good, but the personality is the one that reveals the inner abilities of a person.
Every human being has some or the other ability, if he works hard on it, (this hard work and struggle is called Iqbal-e-Ishq) then man can be on the path of progress. In this regard, Iqbal’s analysis of Muslims is that they leave everything to fate, which is why they do not work hard, do not seek to move forward, do not think of new research.
Iqbal’s word is a beacon for Muslims, but unfortunately Iqbal’s word is not read and understood according to its spirit. If Iqbal is understood and explained one step beyond the curriculum at the official level and his words are really considered as a candle, then Iqbal’s desired revolution can take place in practical form.
