While Iqbal was concerned about the young Muslim generation, this generation is worried about Iqbal day holiday! Everyone wanted to spend this day sleeping and dreaming about how they are going to just care about their relaxation rather than considering the importance of work this day actually! But Hats off to Prime Minister Imran Khan who ignored Shaheens of Iqbal and worked upon Iqbal’s ideology of a developed Pakistan. So First Of all Happy 141 Birthday Allama Muhammad Iqbal, the poet of our nation.
Prime Minister Imran Khan in his message, on the occasion of #IqbalDay, said Pakistanis could achieve high distinction in comity of the nations by understanding the concept of ‘Shaheen’ and philosophy of ‘Khudi’ of #AllamaIqbal and adopting it in practical life. pic.twitter.com/TO0UTeivv5

Tribute To Allama Iqbal (1877-1938)
We as a nation who think that he was the one who saw the dream of Pakistan and contributed equally in the development of this state from the power and light of his strong poetry and absolutely courageous words. From him, the most important thing was religion and thing which become a hurdle between human and his religion at that time were the presence of two nations with different ideologies together. That is the reason why most of his poetry is about the presence and the importance of religion in man’s life.
ظاہر کی انکھ سے نہ تماشا کرے کوئی
ہو دیکھنا تو دیدہ دل وا کرے کوئی
One should not see the Spectacle with the material eye
If one wants to see Him he should open the insight’s eye
