Poetry in praise of Hazrat Imam Husain: Allama Iqbal's Urdu Nazm

For centuries, poets have been penning poetry on the supreme sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Husain (AS), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad.

Imam Husain had achieved martyrdom along with his companions at the battle of Karbala, fighting against the evil Yazid. Read Urdu poet Allama Iqbal's Nazm [verse] that pays tribute to Hussain.

वोह मशरिकी पुकार हो या मग़रिबी सदा 
मज़लूमियत के साज़ पे दोनों हैं हमनवा 

महवर बना है एक जुनूब-ओ-शुमाल का
तफरीक-ए-रंग-ओ-नस्ल पे ग़ालिब है कर्बला

तस्कीन-ए-रूह साया-ए-आह-ओ-बका में हैं 
हर साहब-ए-शऊर का दिल कर्बला में है 

शाएर किसी ख़याल का हो या कोई अदीब
वाएज़ किसी दयार का हो या कोई खतीब

तारीख तौलता है जहां कोई खुशनसीब
इस तरह बात करता है एहसास का नक़ीब

देखो तो सिलसिला-ए-अदब मशरिक़ैन का 
दुनिया की हर ज़बान पे है क़ब्ज़ा हुसैन का 

इकबाल

voh mashriqi pukaar ho ya maGhribii sadaa
mazlumiyat ke saaz pe donoN haiN hamnava

mahvar banaa hai ek junuub-o-shumaal ka
tafriiq-e-rang-o-nasl pe Ghaalib hai Karbala

taskiin-e-ruuH saaya-e-aah-o-bakaa meN hai
har saahab-e-shauur ka dil Karbala meN hai

shaa'er kisii khayaal ka ho ya koii adiib
waaez kisii dayaar ka ho ya koii khatiib

taarikh taultaa  hai jahaaN koii khush-nasiib
is tarah baat kartaa hai ehsaas kaa naqiib

dekho to silsila-e-adab mashriqain kaa
duniya ki har zabaan pe hai qabza Husain kaa

Allama Iqbal
