Shikwa and Jawab-e-Shikwa - Wikipedia
The heartrending circumstances and deprivation faced by Muslims had a profound effect on Iqbal. In Shikwa, Iqbal complains shikwa aur jawab e shikwa the fact that non-Muslims enjoy the bounties of Allah while Muslims suffer all over the world.
Shikwa is a remarkable composition, consisting of 31 stanzas with 6 verses each. It highlights Islamic traditions and values in a beautiful manner, touching even the hardest of hearts.

If our nation had been greedy of worldly wealth Why would we have been idol breakers instead of idol sellers? What of the deserts! We galloped our horses in the dark ocean.?
The second part shows the state of decline of Muslim nation. But Iqbal has projected this aspect so shikwa aur jawab e shikwa that instead of creating a sense of despair and destitute in the mind it inspires a new vigour and courage to stand up and deal with rival forces.
Quoted hereunder are three stanzas of this part: Infidelity is mockinghast Thou some feeling or not? Dost Thou have any regard for Thy own Tawhid or not? Bani aghyar ki ab chahne wali dunya Rahgai apne liye ek khayali dunya Ham to rukhsat hue auron ney sanbhali dunya Shikwa aur jawab e shikwa na kahna hui Tauheed se khali dunya Ham to jeetey hain ke dunya men tera naam rahe Kaheen mumkin hai ke saaqi na rahey jaam rahe?
Now the world is the lover of others For us it is only an imaginary world We have departed, others have taken over the world Do not complain shikwa aur jawab e shikwa that the world has become devoid of Tawhid We live with the object of spreading Thy fame in the world Can the wine cup exist if the cup bearer does not live?
The third part of Shakwa is a direct complaint to God.
Three beautiful stanzas of this part are quoted as under: Ye shikayat naheen hain unke khazane maamoor Naheen mahfil men jinhen baat bhi karne ka shaoor Qahr to ye hai ke kafir ko milen hoor-o qasoor Aur becharey musalman ko faqat waida-i hoor Ab wo altaaf naheen ham pe inaayaat naheen Baat ye kiya hai ke pheli si madaraat naheen We do not complain that their treasures are full Who are not in possession of even basic social graces Outrageous that infidel are rewarded with Houries and palaces And the poor Muslims are placated with only promise of Houries We have been deprived of the former graces and favours What is the matter, shikwa aur jawab e shikwa are deprived of the former honours.
Sarey faraan pey kiya deen ko kamil too ne Ek isharey pe haszroon kay liye shikwa aur jawab e shikwa toone Aathish andoz kiya ishq ka hasil toone Phoonk di garmiye rukhsaar sey mahfil toone Aaj kiyun seene hmare sharar aabaad naheen Ham wohee sokhta saamaan hain tujhey yaad naheen?
We are the same lovers, dost Thou not remember now? The fourth part of Shakwa is the ending of this poem.
SHIKWA AND JAWAB-E-SHIKWA
Here we find Iqbal singing as a nightingale in a garden praying and expressing his sentiments in the most beautiful and touching manner. Aspiring for the Pleiades, How simple it all seems! But let there first be hearts like theirs, To justify such dreams. They reigned upon the Chinese throne, They wore the Persian crown: Where is that honour that shikwa aur jawab e shikwa knew—Words are your whole renown.
You pine after a bud: Yet from him Layla must not veil her face in bashfulness!
