I am the bird...

"Ilm tujh sey to marfat mujh sey;
Too khuda joo, khuda numa main.
Too makan-o-zaman sey rishta bapa
Tairey sidrah aashna hoon main."


Alama Iqbal

From you comes knowledge, from me ecstacy;
You search for God, I show the way.
You are attached to time and place;
I am the bird that ascends to the seventh heaven.
