an english translation of iqbal’s poetry:
Marshall the meek of my world. Arise, set them free.
Seize the towers of the rich. Shake their tyranny.
Lift the slaves. Ignite them. Instill a faith that rocks.
Teach the feeble sparrow to fight the taloned hawk.
Power belongs to the people: their kingdom has come.
Burn the totems of tyranny: their history is done.
