The Sun – Allama Muhammad Iqbal

O Sun! The world’s essence and motivator you are 

The organizer of the book of the world you are 
The splendor of existence has been created by you 

The verdure of the garden of existence depends on you
The spectacle of elements is maintained by you 

The exigency of life in all is maintained by you 
Your appearance confers stability on everything 

Your illumination and concord is completion of life 
You are the sun which establishes light in the world 

Which establishes heart, intellect, essence and wisdom
O Sun! Bestow on us the light of wisdom 

Bestow your luster’s light on the intellect’s eye 
You are the decorator of necessaries of existence’ assemblage 

You are the Yazdan of the denizens of the high and the low 
Your excellence is reflected from every living thing 

The mountain range also shows your elegance 
You are the sustainer of the life of all 

You are the king of the light’s children 
There is no beginning and no end of yours 

Free of limits of time is the light of yours
