A famous couplet/shair by Allama Iqbal is:
Mera Watan Wohi Hai, Mera Watan Wohi Hai”
This couplet is based on a Hadees Mubarika. Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “I feel cool breeze coming from Hind”.
Lets read some references by Oriya Maqbool Jaan and Prof. Ahmad Rafique Akhtar about this Hadees and Future of Pakistan, the couplet from Bang-e-Dra and then details of this Hadees-e-Mubarika.

Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlavi (RA) mentioned a Hadith, referenced by Al-Tibrani-Al-Aust (الطبراني الأوسط), Holy Prophet (PBUH) said,
“I am Arab, but Arab is not in me and I am not in Hind but Hind is in me”میں عرب ہوں, لیکن عرب مجھ میں نہیں اور میں ہند میں نہیں لیکن ہند مجھ میں ہےMain Arab Hun, lekin Arab Mujh mein nahin aur Main Hind mein nahin lekin Hind Mujh mein hai
Allama Iqbal used a part of this Hadith in his couplet of Bang-e-Dra.
