4th May, is the day of Shahadat of the greatest Muslim leader of the 18th century - Tipu Sultan!

In 1799, 4th May, is the day of Shahadat of the greatest Muslim leader of the 18th century - Tipu Sultan, who chose death over disgrace, lived with dignity and died with honor.

His honorable saying in the battle field, just before his death, when he was asked to surrender to the British, has become a legend in the Muslim folklore - "a day in the life of a lion is better than a 1000 years of the life of a jackal !"

Allama Iqbal visited his grave and recited emotional poems for this great warrior, leader, inventor, thinker and visionary.

It is reported that this is the picture of Allama Iqbal at the muqam of Tipu in Mysore. Iqbal inside the final resting place of Sultan Fateh Ali Tipu, Mysore, India. This picture hung in the bedroom of the Allama at a prominent place, where he could see it the instant he awoke, till his dying breath. Such was Iqbal's love for Tipu.


Let us tell you more about Tipu.

He was a military genius, inventor of modern military Rocket and Missile science. For the first time, he deployed Rocket units into battle against the British and devastated them.

he was a mechanical engineer and inventor who had also designed and made a huge man size lion eating a British soldier, which would also play sounds of when the tiger would eat the British. Today, this amazing piece of invention is in the London Museum.

Tipu had formed a global alliance against the British and had close military relations with Nepolean of France, Khilafat e Usmania and China. Tipu's over seas trading was done with entire middle east, turkey, china and central Asia. He was a thinker, man of books as well as sword and a most noble humane character, kind and loving to his people.

He lost because of his treacherous Prime Minister Mir Sadeq, whos name has become immortalized with treachery and betrayal, even in the poems of Baba Iqbal. Even the British knew that as long as Tipu is alive, they can never capture India. After his Shahadat, the British General shouted "Now India is ours" !!!

After Tipu Sultan, Muslim world did not produce any leader of his caliber except Quaid e Azam, MashAllah! InshAllah, this new generation of Ummah will produce many tigers like him.. InshAllah!

هُوَ الَّذِىۡۤ اَرۡسَلَ رَسُوۡلَهٗ بِالۡهُدٰى وَدِيۡنِ الۡحَـقِّ لِيُظۡهِرَهٗ عَلَى الدِّيۡنِ كُلِّهٖۙ وَلَوۡ كَرِهَ الۡمُشۡرِكُوۡنَ

وہی تو ہے جس نے اپنے پیغمبر کو ہدایت اور دین حق دے کر بھیجا تاکہ اس (دین) کو (دنیا کے) تمام دینوں پر غالب کرے۔ اگرچہ کافر ناخوش ہی ہوں


وَعۡدَ اللّٰهِ حَقًّا ‌ؕ وَهُوَ الۡعَزِيۡزُ الۡحَكِيۡمُ
خدا کا وعدہ سچا ہے اور وہ غالب حکمت والا ہے


Indeed its a complete way of life style as Wasif Ali Wasif ra said Pakistan is not merely a country its a TAREEQAT ! When a person lives for the divine romance his life entirely changed, his way of thinking changed and his priorities changed, He in his junoon and bae niazi just struggle and struggle for the glorious awaited destiny This is exactly what our utmost respected Sipah salaar said "we will live with dignity and we shall die with honor" inshaAllah. May we all understand the HUGE responsibility we have to be PAKISTANI. ameen صلى الله عليه و اله وسلم

کی محمّد صلى الله عليه و اله وسلم سے وفا تو نے تو ہم تیرے ہیں
یہ جہاں چیز ہے کیا لوح و قلم تیرے ہیں

Alhamdolillah ... kaseera
