Talib-e-Ilm (A Student) by Allama Iqbal


Original
طالب علم                                         
خدا تجھے کسی طوفاں سے آشنا کر دے
کہ تیرے بحر کی موجوں میں اضطراب نہیں
تجھے کتاب سے ممکن نہیں فراغ کہ تو
کتاب خواں ہے مگر صاحب کتاب نہیں


 
Transliteration
                       Talib-e-Ilm
Khuda tujhey kisi toofan se aashna kr dey,
Kay terey beher ki maujoun mein Iztiraab nahin,
Tujhey kitaab se mumkin nahin firagh kay tu,
Kitaab khuwan hai, magar sahib-e-kitaab nahin


 Sahib-e-Kitaab means a person, that if you give him a book, he is as enlightened by the words of that book as if he has written them himself, i.e. the meaning of that book comes to him automatically
