Taking part in the London Round-Table Conference on India in , he spent in Afghanistan as adviser on education. In his health began to decline, and on April 21, , he died. Throughout his extremely active life, in which he did so much to shape the destinies of the land of his birth and to mould the political future of the Moslem community so that he has been called the spiritual founder of Pakistan , Iqbal maintained a steady and, towards the end, a torrential output of literature.
Writing with equal facility in Urdu, Persian and English, and in his soaring range covering law, philosophy and religion as well as politics, it was as a poet that Iqbal made his greatest contribution to letters.
On his death Rabindranath Tagore wrote: India, whose place in the world is too narrow, can ill afford to miss a poet whose poetry had such universal value. The volume here translated, the Javid Namah, came out in Within a few years of its publication the poem became a classic, and.
Nor was this tribute an exaggeration, as subsequent criticism showed In judging a poem we have to consider two things: So far as the style is concerned, Javid Namah belongs to the very first rank of Persian verse. It is unsurpassed in grandeur of expression, in beauty of diction and in richness of illustration.
As regards theme, the poem deals with the everlasting conflict of the soul, and by telling the story of human struggle against sin, shows to mankind the path to glory and peace. In every line the poet makes us feel that he has something to say that is not only worth saying, but is also fitted to give us pleasure.
Thus, as regards style as well as theme the poem is a masterpiece. A French version, by E.
Javid Nama Lecture 2 by Justice Javaid Iqbal
The poem has thus reached a truly international public, and has already taken its rightful place amongst the modern classics of world literature. Iqbal composed three long Persian poems in which he gave artistic expression to his highly characteristic philosophical ideas. The second of the trilogy, the Rumuz-i Bekhudi came out in , but it was not until that the first translation appeared, an English blank-verse rendering by the present writer entitled The Mysteries of Selflessness John Murray.
As their titles indicate, the central theme of both these poems is the Self, or human ego, in its relationship to society, more specifically the Moslem community, and the place of the Moslem community in the world at large.
In common with all sensitive Moslems in India and elsewhere, Iqbal was deeply pained by the contrast between Islam in the days of its greatest power, and the status of colonial tutelage — to use a mild euphemism — to which most Moslem countries had sunk in modern times. Both the Asrar-i Khudi and the Rumuz-i Bekhudi were composed in rhyming couplets, following a very long tradition in Persian didactic poetry going back a thousand years.
The metre chosen by Iqbal for these poems is the ramal-i musaddas-i maqsur, the same as that employed by the greatest of Persian mystics, Jalal al-Din Rumi , in the greatest didactic poem in Persian literature, the Masnavi.
One noteworthy feature of the convention is that the poet lightens from time to time the weight of formal exposition by the introduction of illustrative anecdotes; to this tradition Iqbal also conformed.
When, however, he came to compose the third of his trilogy, Iqbal varied the pattern strikingly; the Javid-nama is conceived as a narrative poem, or rather, a poetic drama, in which the didactic is put into the mouths of the dramatis personae. A further remarkable novelty is the interspersing of lyrics, in various metres and in the mono-rhyme characteristic of the Persian ghazal, the effect of which is a very great enhancement of the poetic tension of the whole.
In his journey through the seven heavens Mohammed, mounted upon the winged horse Buraq, had as his guide the archangel Gabriel; in the course of his ascent he is said to have encountered and conversed with earlier prophets, from Adam in the first heaven to Abraham in the seventh, before enjoying the supreme felicity of colloquy with God.
He nominated as his guide the poet to whose language, style and thought he felt himself rightly to be under a special obligation, the Sage of Rum, Jalal al-Din Rumi; whilst the personalities he encountered on his journey were drawn not from the hierarchy of the prophets, but from those who had played a leading part in the history of Islam, particularly in its later period.
Iqbal presents the translator with all the usual problems connected with translating poetry, and with further problems, still more difficult of solution, posed by his elusive style and idiosyncratic vocabulary. That this elusiveness was deliberate is proved by a remark he jotted down in a notebook dating from , and published by his son Javid in I like, however, an element of obscurity and vagueness in poetry; since the vague and the obscure appear profound to the emotions.
But Persian is a language almost ideally suited to deliberate vagueness, on account both of its grammatical and syntactical simplicity, and of its rich and at the same time somewhat imprecise philosophical vocabulary.
This last point has been well made by S. Vahid in his Iqbal, his Art and Thought.
Some of these words are coined by him; others represent old words used in an entirely new sense He is also a superb phrase-maker and has wonderful felicity of phrasing by which language acquires meanings beyond those formally assigned by the lexicographer. These words and phrases act as the keystone for the entire arch of the poetic inspiration. As the removal of the keystone is sure to cause the downfall of the entire arch, so if we try to substitute something else for the master word or phrase, the whole artistic expression is marred.
It so happens that in the case of the Javid-nama, we have been provided with material, though all too scanty, enabling us to test this theory; in his Reconstruction of Religious Thought, Iqbal has himself translated into English two passages from this poem. The plant which groweth only from the invisible soil of the heart of man, Groweth not from a mere heap of clay.
In the original Persian these lines read: The first witness is thine own consciousness— See thyself, then, with thine own light. The second witness is the consciousness of another ego— See thyself, then, with the light of an ego other than thee.
The Making of Javid Nama by Dr. Allama Iqbal
I had this in mind reviewing Dr. Iqbal wrote three long poems in Persian: Asrar-e-Khudi , which R. Arberry in Javed Nama was the third long poem, also rendered by Arberry into blank verse. Unlike Asrar-e-Khudi and Rumuz-e-Bekhudi, both of which followed traditional Persian poetic traits of Rumi, complete with rhymes etc.
This last part of the poem is for some reason not present in some other published translations but it is included in this book. We have no information on Dr. Those who do not understand Persian, or are not comfortable with it, would find this volume helpful in understanding in English what Iqbal had said and meant in Persian.
