Zindagi o Amal – Poem from Javed Nama [Allama Iqbal]

This Persian poem by Allama Iqbal’s is inspired by German poet Heinrich Heine’s Fragen [Question in German]. It has philosophical nuances around the meaning of life and energy.

The vast ocean exclaims that she has spent many years, yet she doesn’t know what she is and what is the meaning of her life?

The tiny sea wave, who is full of energy, hears this. He replies that all he knows is that his existence is due to his movement. Where his movement stops, he will ceases to exist. Basically, life is a constant journey and struggle, and lethargy is equivalent to death. See Persian Text with Urdu translation below:
