Intet menneske er undergivet et andet menneske på denne jord.
På et punkt er Sharia klar; det er det (oven)anførte.
Iqbal aur Qur'an af G. A. Parwez
The servant of God has no need of any station,
no man is his slave, and he is the slave of none;
the servant of God is a free man, that is all,
his kingdom and laws are given by God alone,
his customs, his way, his faith, his laws are of God,
of God his foul and fair, his bitter and sweet.
The self-seeking mind heeds not another's welfare,
sees only its own benefit, not another's;
God's revelation sees the benefit of all,
its regard is for the welfare and profit of all.
Javid Nama | Book of Eternity
I always speak the truth only;
neither am I a fool from the
mosque, nor a slave to the modern civilization.
That is why my own
people as well as strangers are angry with me.
I couldn’t call a
deadly poison, to be the sugar.
It is impossible for a man, who
sees the Truth, and thinks nothing but Truth, that he should call
a heap of rubbish, to be a mountain.
O God! My tongue should not be bound to the appreciation of any
particular colour (nation).
The entire mankind should be my
nation, and the whole world, my country!
Muslims of the whole world should be united to defend the Kaaba
(Islam). Whether it be a Turk in a royal tent, or an Arab of a
very high pedigree, whoever will cause discrimination of colour
and blood, will vanish altogether. If the Muslims will prefer
Pedigree to their Religion, they will disappear from the world,
just like the dust of the way.
The true merit of man is his love and respect for mankind,
higher than Heaven is the abode of man.
Whether it is imperialism or democracy,
if religion is
separated from politics, there remains
lawlessness and exploitation.
Oh, do not hold meeting on the bank of the river,
for there the
tune of life is heard very low.
Arise! Jump into the river and
fight with its waves.
The secret of eternal life is in a constant
It is action, which builds up a pleasant and successful life!
It is action, which ultimately forms heaven or hell for man,
otherwise man, by his nature, is neither pious nor impious!
I am not going to buy that knowledge and wisdom
even for a
blade of grass, which makes a warrior
indifferent to his sword and
An individual can exist as long as he dissolves himself into
the nation; Otherwise, taking him alone, he is nothing!
example, a wave is a wave, as long as it is in the river;
the river, it is nothing!
O Muslim! Be always faithful to the nation!
Just like a branch
(an individual), get attached to the tree (the nation),
then can you expect an eternal spring for yourself!
The Truth never remains hidden from, for Allah has blessed me
with a well-informed and wide-awake heart! Of course, I am fully aware of the atheistic politics of
Europe, for it is a slave-girl to Devil, is very low-born, and has
a dead conscience. Since their State has got rid of the Church, the
Great Britain is no more than a monster, which has been let loose
of chains. Yet, when they wish to possess another’s belongings, then Lo!
The representatives of the Church are right in the front row of
