-Allama Iqbal

The land where Chishti sounded
The message of truth
The garden where Nanak sang
The song of unity
Where the tartars
Chose to dwell
Which from Arabs
Took their hill

That is my homeland
That is my homeland

The land which the Greek
Were taken aback
From where knowledge and skill,
The world did take.
Whose truth gave its dust,
A gold-like effect.
Which in the Turks’ garment
Filled with diamond

That is my homeland
That is my homeland

Shattered was the star
Which in the Persian sky
Again saw it endure
In our galaxy
From where the world heard
The voice of accord
From where the Arabian Leader
Felt coming the Cool Zephyr

That is my homeland
That is my homeland

As Sinai is to Moses the Prophet
Such is to the world our mount
Where the Ship of the Noah
Came to a halt
Whose land is so high
As a ladder to roof of sky
Living in whose surroundings
Is like the abode of paradise.

That is my homeland
That is my homeland
