Pareshan ho ke meri khak aakhir dil na ban jaye

The main theme of this ghazal is love. Allama Iqbal says that after death, if the scattered particles of my dust do not come together and take the form of heart, then I will be caught in the same trouble that was imposed on me in the form of love during my life. This means that the love I have been in love within my life should not be such that even after death I would be in the same situation. Even if I reach paradise, the maidens there should not force me to express the state of love that has caused me to fast in my life. The pain of failing to reach the destination becomes a constant hassle for the traveler and hinders the struggle to reach the destination. Iqbal sees this situation as a negation of his thinking. The passion of love has given me such a vastness that it is like an endless ocean. Now the fear is that this notion will not become a shore that will become a milestone in my struggle for evolution. In this poem, Allama Iqbal says, with reference to the traditional story of Laila and Majnoon's love affair, has expressed his fear that even in this world of color and smell, I will not become an allegory of the said story by falling in love. In other words, the desire for a beloved has been a sign of failure for the rest of one's life and if it happens in another world after death, it will be very painful. In this poem, Allama Iqbal mentions the evolution of man in his time with reference to the symbols of stars and perfect honey. He says that the rise of the common man today due to his struggle has frightened the elites in the society that if he has reached the destination of success with his struggle then his Significance depends on the size of the reaction.
