Summary of SOIS session - 4th July

The session on 4th of July brought higher literature in to consideration. It must be kept in mind while analyzing the themes of two-directional literary culture of society. One is inclined towards removal of Self and its Identity, i.e, Self-Destruction.

Another one is towards its re-construction and consolidation. Here, course of all sciences start from 1947 A.D. The forces of two branches are pivotal at this point.

The higher remarks the event as superfluous, un-necessary and need-less. It erases all zeal, love, passion and patriotism from soul of people. On the other hand, Consensus literature regards it content for life and faith.

The disappearing sense of self – esteem would be enough to demoralize or to lose hope from future. The insignificance for nation's Endeavor and struggle is sufficient to render ones life as meaningless.

"They think to beguile Allah and those who believe, and they beguile none save themselves; but they perceive not. (9) In their hearts is a disease, and Allah increaseth their disease. A painful doom is theirs because they lie. (10)

And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. (11) Beware ! They indeed the mischief-makers. But they perceive not. (12)

And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: shall we believe as the foolish believe? Beware ! They indeed are the foolish. But they know not. (13)

And when they fall in with those who believe, they say: We believe; but when they go apart to their devils they declare: Lo! we are with you; verily we did but mock. (14) Allah (Himself) doth mock them, leaving them to wander blindly on in their contumacy. (15)"

Verses – 09-15

Surah Baqarah -02

Revival of Nation's surge depends mainly on importance of this year. The blood that flood in way of sacrifices infuses bravery and selflessness into younger spirits. The episode of 1947 A.D is a life for this land that can never be FORGOTTEN.

The next half of session comprised upon the read and in-depth review if Allama Iqbal's poems, which are comprised upon five sets. These pentagonal graphed poems have some special relevance with history of civilization.

Each set marking out evolution of human being as whole.these five wisdoms named as;

Things as they are
Connections and Contrasts

Both worlds may be seen in a wine- pitcher I have,

Where is the eye to view sights I see?

Here comes another man, possessed, who shouts in the city;

Two hundred commotions arise from the obsession I have.

Do not worry, ignorant one, at approaching darkness of the nights,

For the scar at my forehead sparkles like stars,

You take me as your companion,

But, I am afraid you are not up to the tumult and uproar, I have raised

The four couplets reflect meanings of four wisdoms. Well, fifth wisdom, its explanation is withheld due to the fact that how we may think last piece would complete a Puzzle!

P.S - The five sets of poems, for sake of references are;

"Farishtey Adam ko Jannat se Rukhsat karte hain"
"Rooh e Arzi Aadam ka Istaqbaal karti hay"
