The Decline Of Muslims / The poetry of Iqbal in English

Though wealth and gold provide
The worldly needs of man :
But what Faqr can bestow
No wealth or gold e'er can.

If  youth of nation mine
Were jealous of their creed,
MY Qalandar's state Won't mind
Alexander's might indeed.

With ease you can divine
To something else is due :
Penury can not cause
Decline of Moslems True.

Wealth has played no part
To bring my worth to light :
My Faqr this spell has cast
The share of wealth is slight

"Zarb e Kaleem"
