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

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.


  1. what does it mean by "Jang abi Hazrat Ali R.A. and Ghous e Pak R.A kay ghar mein ho rehi hai "

  2. @Anonymous

    Firstly, Hazrat Ali (R.A.) and Ghouse Pak R.A. are buried in Iraq and their shines/tombs are in Najaf and Baghdad respectively so in last many years due to foreign influences many wars have been fought in those regions.

    Secondly, if spiritually speaking as Wasif Sahib said, Enemies are trying to weaken the beliefs of people on Islamic teaching and Now faiths of people are in danger due to western culture/wars and incompetent leaderships.

    As Iqbal said

    Sadgi Muslim Ki Dekh, Auron Ki Ayyari Bhi Dekh
