Hope (Umeed) / Iqbal Poetry English Translation

with courage great a war i wage
Gainst evils of the present age:
I do not bear a fighter's name'
To chieftainship I lay no claim.

I am not conscious "bout this fact
If it is verse or other tact:
ALLAH has bestowed on me science long
His praise, reflection, charm and song.

The flood of light that makes its show
On true and faithful Muslim's brow:
With grandeur same is quite replete
That fills being's soul and make complete

You do not call it unbelief,
No less it is than disbelief:
That truthful man may get content
With today, for change shoe no intent.

Don't grieve, for millennium and aeons more
Still lie ahead for man in store:
The ever spinning heaven blue
Is not devoid of planets new.

Zarb e Kaleem
