26:224 As for poets, the misguided follow them.
26:225 Have you not seen how they stray in every valley of thought, like a camel with false thirst?
26:226 And that they say what they do not practice? [36:39]
26:227 But there are those who along with believing (in revelation), set things right in the society, remain mindful of God’s commands, and stand up for their rights. The violators of human rights will soon come to know how viciously their affairs get overturned.
[A’maal Saaleh = Actions that create balance in the society = Acts that remove deficiencies = Helping others = Increasing individual and societal potential. Wantasaroo = They support their just cause = Defend themselves = Stand up for their rights = They help create a just social order with no room for oppression]
کم شناسم عشق را این کار چیست
ذوق دیدار است، پس دیدار چیست
I understand little what the act of ISHQ is
It is only the taste of seeing (the beloved), but what is seeing (the beloved)?
You have given an excellent example of how the poets, even the great ones like Iqbal, contradict themselves and roam in every valley of conjecture.
Ironically, Allama Iqbal strongly motivates people to rise up and work relentlessly to achieve their goals but almost all his biographies, letters and his historical interview (ROAZGAAR-E-FAQEER) show him as a very lazy man. His son, Dr Justice Javeed Iqbal, writes that when he planned to go somewhere at noon time, he started sobbing 4-5 hours earlier. It took him 6-8 hours to get ready, even in a simplest attire, and reached the host around 5 PM!
I had confirmed the lazy habits of the Allama with Dr Javeed Iqbal and he reiterated it as an irrefutable fact.
