- The name ‘Jaihoon’
Jaihoon is named after a river in Turkistan which is mentioned in the following lines of Allama Iqbal
In the heart of the Fire of Rum is your remedy,
On your intellect the Franks have cast their spell;
My eye is illumined by his grace,
By his munificence Jaihoon is contained in my ewer
The world is expanding in size and thought. But time is getting lesser and lesser. There is no time to waste. Every moment is begging for an action. There is no reason to sit idle because, as Iqbal says,
Waqt-e-fursat hai kahan? Kaam abhi bhi baaqi hai!
Noor-e-tawheed ka ikhtimam abhi bhi baaqi hai!
‘There is no time to relax, much still remains to be done;
You have yet to fully spread the light of God, the only one.’
