An Iqbalian Thought

Teri dua se qadha to badal nahin sakti,
Magar ye hay mumkin, ke tu badal jaaye.

Teri dua hay ki ho teri arzoo puri,
Meri dua hay ke teri arzoo badal jaaye.

Iqbal sagaciously explains the inevitable Law of Nature, and the way it is suppose to dealt with. The law (Qadha) of God cannot change by our prayers, but it is possible that we try and change ourselves in order to comply with it.

We pray that God fulfill our wish; he prays that we change our very wish (to coincide with the laws of Almighty God).

That’s Iqbal!
