Views of Wasif Ali Wasif during Gulf War (1990), Extract from Book: Muqalma (Page 163)
English translation at the end of post.
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
When a Rider (Muslim Leader) will born from my own clay
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.
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.
