Reality of Words Ishq-o-Masti, Junoon, Saqi, Mai, Maikhana, Rind in Allama Iqbal Poetry

An Important Concept Explained By Sufi Barkat Ali (R.A)

Sufi Muhammad Barkat Ali

Allama Iqbal was a foreseer of 'Islamic Renaissance' (اسلام کی نشاۃ ثانیہ کی خوشخبری دینے والے) so his poetry is a mission & policy statement for the revival of Islam in the light of Quran & Sunnah and it is absolutely vital for the 'Future of Pakistan' in current circumstances.

Here, an important concept of his poetry is discussed. First read these couplets by Allama Iqbal
From Book: Baal-e-Jibreel

Allama Iqbal frequently used words like Mai (مے), Maikhana (میخانہ), Rind (رند), Saqi (ساقی), Ishq-o-Masti (عشق و مستی), Badah-o-Jaam (بادہ و جام ), Jazb (جذب), Junoon (جنوں), Sharab-e-Kuhan (شراب کہن) and similar words in his poetry.

 These words are used Symbolically (بطور استعارہ) or Indirectly to convey some important message as explained by Sufi Barkat Ali.
Let’s discover what special meanings are hidden in these words/terms, then read more couplets after these extracts.

A question asked to Sufi barkat Ali (R.A.) about these words, and he explained the reality of these words in depth, helping us to understand Allama Iqbal’s poetry as well as other Sufism books using such terms.

(Extract from Books, Maqalat-e-Hikmat by Sufi Barkat Ali Sahib)
English Translation is below:

He further explains,

So it is now very much clear what exactly these terms mean. Now below couplets/ashaar can easily be understood. All books of Allama Iqbal contain these words.
From Book Baal-e-Jibreel

English Translation of above Extracts:

A MAN ASKED: "These writings quite often talk about Maiy (wine), and the Maikhanah (wine house), the Rinds (astute subscribers) are praised, the Saaqee's (server's) blissful sight and the charity and benign are mentioned. What is meant by this Maiy (wine), the Maikhanah (wine-house), the Rind (astute man) and the Saaqee (server)? Please explain!"

Sufi Barkat Ali Said: O my dear friend, the Maiy (wine) does not mean the liquor extracted from a few herbs which on drinking makes the man talk light, mouth smell and the mind nullified. That liquor is the mother of crimes. How could we, O my dear, be full ofpraise for this wine? By this Maiy (wine), I mean the wine that Iman Hussain, my master, my lord, my well-wisher, my friend, the exalted leader, the prime of both the worlds, may Allah the Almighty be pleased with him, drank and during the intoxication of which he, free from every fear and danger, gazed with his eyes into the eyes of death and smiled. Drunk in the intoxication of the same, he sacrificed his everything for the truth. And the observing world heard him say nothing but these words:

Innaa Lillahi Wa innaa Alayhi Raaji'uoon!
Verily we are Allah's and verily unto Him we will return.
- (AI-Quran 2:156)

O my dear, is this Maiy (wine) something, something ordinary? Allah, Allah, whoever became intoxicated by this wine, he became fed up and hateful of everything, completely carefree of everything. He, then, trampled rank and authority under his feet and knocked out, once and for all crown and throne, riches and fame. He regarded the will of the Saaqee (server) superior in every 'stage' and 'state'. He did not even stop short of stepping on to the scaffolds. He had his skin flayed. But his firm steps did not tremble. The body was sawn with the saw but not a sigh was heaved. He came to the chamber of death with such grace that the world was taken aback, Heaven and Earth contracted to breaking point. The dwellers of Heaven in Heaven and the dwellers of Earth in the World were wonder struck and compelled to lavish praises and appreciations. Reason warned: "Where do you go? Why are you following the way to death? Think, understand and stop it!" But intoxication did not let any effect from anyone take him over. Nor can intellect and understanding face absorption and intoxication.
The very first draught of the wine granted the Rind (astute) such a fondness and attraction that he collided with the storms and rocks, jumped into the fields full of danger. He did not falter at all. No hurdle in his way could stop him. No difficulty could overpower his determination. No fear could make him waiver. He was cut into pieces but he did not surrender, Subhaan-Allah! He kept advancing and could not be stopped by anyone. Faithfulness is the ancient custom of the Rinds (astute). They do not stop short of custom. This 'stage' is not that of 'bestowal' but 'abstraction'. 0 my dear, could the conscious ones commit these acts of intoxication? Never! Allah the Almighty has granted this status to his own Rinds (astute servants), not everyone. If everybody had a command over this stage, what value and esteem would it have enjoyed. If it was within the reach of everybody, what taste and freshness would it have held? Not everybody has the power to drink it. And having drunk it, there are only a few who can withstand it.

The tavern was lively, throbbing and crowded. The wine smell sent out message of life all round. The astute men gathered round in crowds, leaving not a space to sit. One drink after another was served. The intoxication of the server and the colorful hue of the astute was worth seeing and appreciation. Their ecstatic cries reverberated not only amongst the doors and walls of the tavern but the horizons of the World.
The World of the Astute Men!
What shall I tell, O my dear, how was that?
They remained intoxicated in their musings, absorbed in their occupation and drunk in the liquor neither attendant nor attracted to anyone. They did not care for anybody. Nothing of the World bore any value in their sight.
They were cut to pieces, yet never retreated.
They accomplished the task if once they made up their mind.
They performed the job, if they were determined for once, never caring for any opposition at all. One of them encountered hundreds of the foe. Nobody could bear the majesty of their sights.
The 'wine' referred to in these monologues does not mean the liquor that nullifies understanding. It refers to the character of the Caliphs of Rashidins, and this (the character) includes in it, O my dear, everything: intoxication, unconsciousness, independence, honour, highness, indignation, enthusiasm, majesty, regality and awe. Maa shaa Allah! They were the astute men and that was the tavern. Myself and you changed this wine and changed it completely. We have changed it to sherbet, nay to a very dilute lassi (yogurt mixed with water) that has no vigor, no heat, no intoxicant and no taste in it. It is a drink without life. It has the body but no spirit.

Don't Lose Hope In Allah's Mercy...(Articles by Dr. A. R. Khalid)

La Taqnatu Min Rahmatillah.......(لا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ)

Dr. A. R. Khalid's articles about Syed Sarfraz A. Shah Sahib. Dr. Sahib mentioned many events and a meeting of Intellectuals and Journalists with Shah Sahib about Future of Pakistan, Although he doesn't give much details of that meeting, but he summarized that meeting in title of these articles (لا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ).

Lets first read this From Quran Pak. This Ayat tells us that we should never give up hope in Allah's mercy as it is mentioned in Quran: Para 24.
Para 24: Faman Azlam, Surah Al-Zumar (39), Ayat  No. 53 (لا تَقْنَطُوا underlined)

Allama Iqbal also refered this Ayat, in one of this poems of Book: Bal-e-Jibreel
From Poem: Jibreel-e-Iblees (Read Complete here)

Iblees (Shaitan) wants to remain disappointed and says 'Taqnatu' its better for him because due to his hopelessness, his plans are working fine. (It is opposite to what Allah is saying in Quran)
(Iblees Reply To Jibreel A.S.)

One whose despair (hopelessness) warms the heart of the universe
What suits him best, ‘Give up hope’ or Don’t give up hope!

For Iblees (Satan) 'Taqnatu' (Give up hope) may suits but, A Momin always believes in  'La Taqnatu' (Don’t give up hope).

Now Read These Articles
1. Book: Kahe Faqeer is also briefly discussed. Event described in these articles about 'Baba Farid-Ud-Din Ganj Shakar R.A.' can be found in Syed Sarfraz A. Shah Sahib's Audio Lectures.

A 'Shahsawar' Will Appear From This Dust...(Wasif Ali Wasif)

We Should Wait, Muslims Will Rediscover Themselves

Views of Wasif Ali Wasif during Gulf War (1990), Extract from Book: Muqalma (Page 163)
English translation at the end of post.

From This Dust A Rider Comes, Do You Know?   (Allama Iqbal)

When we read above extract, we immediately come to know that Wasif Ali Wasif was referring to Allama Iqbal's 'Awaited Leader' as Allama Iqbal many times mentioned That Rider (A Great Leader) in his poetry.

It is already posted on this blog. See detailed post Awaited Leader (Allama Iqbal's Prayer & Prediction)
From Book Armaghan-e-Hijaz Farsi

From This Dust A Rider Comes, Do You Know?

How lucky and happy would be that era/time,
When a Rider (Muslim Leader) will born from my own clay

How lucky a nation who is captured by difficulties,
Because from its heart (inner) A Great Leader will born.
Appearance of That Great Leader is a secret of secrets,
Because every dust doesn't have that Leader

Must Read Complete Poem here

English Translation of above mentioned extract:
Wasif Ali Wasif Sahib:
Due to some reason, this will not be an extra-ordinary war*; there is a secret behind this, a deep secret. This doesn’t relate to cause and effect. A man and his destiny rely on this, Muslim and his belief depends on this, Islam and its future depends on this. A man is stood firm with believe and confidence, a human can’t do this.

(Quoting Allama Iqbal's couplet from Book: Bal-e-Jibreel: Poem Saqi Nama)
Spiritual Guide, Come lift the veil of mysteries,
Make a mere wagtail fight with eagle

I foresee, a rider will appear from this dust. If we consider spiritual world, the war is now being fought in homes of Hazrat Ali (Razi Allahu Tala Anhu) and Ghous Pak (Rehmat Ullah Alaih). whom we ask for help. We should wait. Muslims will rediscover themselves.

* Wasif Ali Wasif's prediction came true as Gulf War didn't last very long.

English Translation of Excerpt from Alakh Nagri posted in start:

I (Mumtaz Mufti) was very impressed by Noor Baba, he was very humble and caring, then one day a discussion on Pakistan began.
Noor Baba said: ‘A conference of Great Sufi Saints of Hindustan was held, many years before the creation of Pakistan. We also participated in that conference. A decision was made there that an Islamic state will be established. We also signed that decision.'

I shocked on this open claim and so much pride.
Someone asked, ‘Baba Jee, Is this Pakistan an Islamic State?’
Baba replied to that man,
'A seed is just put in place, soon a plant will rise and when a flower will appear on this plant, whole world will see this with wonder'
