Chino, Arab hamara Hindusitaa hamara.

China, Arab as well as India belongs to us.

Muslim hae hum watan hae sara Jaha Hamara.

We are Muslims and this whole world belongs to us.

Tauhid ki amanat sino me hae baaqi

We retain the trust of Monotheism in our hearts/ breasts.

Aasa nahi mitana namo nisha hamara.

Its not easy to wipe out our existance.

Dunya ke tabkado me pehla wo ghar Khuda ka.

Among the sanctums of the world this first house of God

Hum is ke paasbaa hae wo paasbaa hamara.

We protect it and it protects us

Tegho ke saaye me hum pal kar jawa huve hae.

Beneath the shades of swords we approached the maturity.

Khanjar hilal ka hae qaumi nisha hamara

The dagger of crescent represent our nation

Maghrib ki wadio me gunje Azaa hamari

The valleys of West resonate our call ( Azan)

Thamtha na tha kisise sailo rawa hamara

No one could ever stop our journey.

Baatil se dabne wale ae aasmaa nahi hum

O Heaven! we aren't the one to be oppressed by evil.

Sau baar kar chuka hae tu imteha hamara

You've witnessed this for hundreds of time.

Ae gulistane Andsuna wo din hae yaad tujko

O Spanish gardens do you recall those days

Tha teri dalio me jab aashiya hamara

Among your branches did we dwelt.

Ae arbode Ganga wo din hae yaad tujko?

O Ganges do you remember the day.

Utra tere kinare jab crawa hamara

When our carawan stepped/docked on your basins

Ae mauje Dajla tu bhi pehchanti hae humko

O waves of Tigris you too know us well

Ab tak tere darya afsana khwa hamara

Even today your waters recite our stories

Ae arde paak teri hurmat pe kat mare hum

O pious land for sake of your worth we sacrifice our selves.

Hae khu teri rago me ab tak khua hamara

In your viens does our blood circulates.

Saalare carwa hae Mire-Hijaz (pbuh) apna

The guide of this carawan is commander of Hijaz (pbuh) .

Is naam se hae baaqi aarame jaa hamara

With this name do we find peace in our hearts.

Iqbaal ka tarana Bange-dara hae goya

The anthem of Iqbal delivers this message

Hota hae jadah paamya phir carwan hamara

And this message motivates our carawan

Thanks for sharing that poem Mazher's. It's interesting to observe how Allama Iqbal's views shifted from a pro Indian nationalist stance ("saray jahaan say achcha hindustaan hamara") to a pan-Islamist stance. And, from a possibility of co-existence of Muslims and Hindus as one nation to an ideology of separation. For one, Maulana Abul Ala Maududi was against the nationalist solution and opposed the creation of Pakistan.

I heard a scholar saying that Allama Iqbal's proposition for a separate state (Pakistan) along a religio-nationalist line was more on pragmatic basis. A pure pan-Islamist position would have required him to move beyond a nationalist solution and directly call for Islamic Ummah Unity across the globe (which he did if only theoretically). Or may be to him a separate Pakistani-Muslim state was the first step toward that global Islamic block.

His words: I therefore demand a formation of a consolidated state in the best interest of India and Islam. There are two understanding on this statements one Indian Muslim's and another of a Pakistani theory.

He travelled to Europe and from then onwards the interest began.

the anthem (translation) was less than lackluster. who deemed this the "muslim" anthem?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Greetings

Fate has strange ways. I was just browsing the top threadon the Farsi/Urdu Forum, old one, revived perhaps because you found some song some one had requested many moons ago . .

And then I see you here, at the Taraneh Milli .... and wow

Forget about the translation, that is a labour of love, though the love be misplaced. The original is a dud. It's a cheap تضمین of Iqbal's own Taraneh Hindi.

If I find time, I'll get these two composed in Urdu and post them here back to back.

The Taraneh Hindi which pre-dates the Taraneh Milli [the name was given by Iqbal himself] by about 6 or seven years is high evocative and exudes the love of one's land.

Craft and prosody, however, in either isn't what one usually sees in Iqbal. He was a superb craftsman.

Peace

Even in the Tarane milli you find the Hindustan ( India) to be mentioned as Muslim property or atleast a part of Muslim empire.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Greetings

Bhaee mayray, it was never "tumhaara" in the context if Iqbal's "hamara"

It is true that Musulmaan dynasties ruled parts of the Indian sub-continet for so many centuries. But would it be factual to state that all those chotee barree states were Islamic states. Mughal Empire yes. Safavid empire, yes. Ottoman empire, yes. But there never has there been an Islamic empire, a Muslim empire in history.

For the sole reason that

Islaam is not an imperialist ideology. . . aur iss peh Rabb kaa shukar adaa karo ...

As for pan-islamism, yeh charseeyoun mawaalyoun kaa khwaab hai, poora naheen honay kaa ...

Peace

which it never was. . .

Or one has to agree with Islam coated imperialism of early Muslims. Remember the words of Tariq bin Ziyad at the shores of Gibraltar? Something like: har/een zameen zameen-e-maast ke zameen maast zameen-e-khudaast.
