A Crocodile’s advice to his Child: Kalam Allama Iqbal with translation

A Crocodile’s advice to his Child – Poem from Allama Iqbal’s Armaghan-i-Hijaz

“In our religion, resting on shore is prohibited/haram
Hence, you wrangle with wild waves of ocean
And remain away from shore since entire turbulent ocean is our home
You are not in ocean. But the ocean is part of you.
Your real talent is how you fight with sea storms
When storms cease in the ocean
Such complacency will ruin you in reality”
