علامہ اقبال ہمارے قومی شاعر ہیں۔ وہ سیالکوٹ میں پیدا ہوئے۔ ابتدائی تعلیم بھی وہاں ہی حاصل کی۔ اس کے بعد لاہور آگئے۔ انہوں نے فلسفہ میں ایم اے کیا۔ کچھ دن وہ گور نمنٹ کالج میں پر وفیسر بھی رہے ۔ پھر وہ انگلستان چلے گئے۔ انگلستان سے واپسی پر لاہور میں وکالت شروع کی لیکن انہیں یہ کام پسند نہ آیا۔ ان کی زیادہ تر دلچسپی شاعری اور قومی مسائل میں تھی۔ انہوں نے اپنے جذبات کو اپنے

Allama Iqbal is our national poet. He was born at Sialkot. He also got his early education from there. Then he came to Lahore. There he did his M.A. in Philosophy. For some days he also served as a professor at Government College. Then he went to England. On returning from England, he began practicing law at Lahore but he did not like that work. He was much interested in poetry and national affairs. He was grieved to think that the Muslims were poor, ignorant and backward in the entire world. He has expressed his very grief in his poetry. But his poetry has a quality that it does not dampen the spirit of the reader; it urges him to action. Every verse of Iqbal is full of passion.
ایک مؤرخ اپنے عہد کی کچی اور مکمل تصویر پیش کرتا ہے۔ وہ کوئی جھوٹی بات نہیں لکھتا۔ وہ کسی بات کو دہراتا نہیں۔ وہ کسی کے خلاف تعصب نہیں رکھتا۔ کبھی کبھی دوا چھے مؤرخ ایک دوسرے سے اتفاق نہیں کرتے۔ وہ ایک ہی منظر دیکھتے ہیں اور مختلف داستانیں بیان کرتے ہیں۔ وجہ یہ ہے کہ مؤرخ بھی انسان ہوتے ہیں مشینیں نہیں۔ انسان ایک دوسرے سے مختلف ہوتے ہیں اور چیزوں کو مختلف زاویوں سے دیکھتے ہیں۔ اس لیے مؤرخ کی شخصیت اس کی تحریر سے غیر حاضر نہیں ہوتی۔
A historian presents a realistic and complete picture of his age. He does not write any unauthentic account. He does not repeat any episode. He is not biased against anyone. Sometimes two good historians do not agree with each other. They see the same scene and narrate different stories. It is because historians are also human beings and not machines. Humans are different from one another and see things from different angles. Therefore, a historian’s personality does not remain absent in his writing.
کالجوں میں بد نظمی دن بدن بڑھ رہی ہے۔ طلباء اپنی پڑھائی پر توجہ نہیں دیتے۔ وہ اساتذہ کا احترام نہیں کرتے۔ وہ کالج باقاعدگی سے نہیں جاتے۔ اگر وہ ہفتہ میں ایک یاد دو بار کالج چلے بھی جائیں تو اپنا وقت فضول

Indiscipline is increasing day by day in colleges. Students do not pay attention to their studies. They do not respect the lecturers. They do not go to colleges regularly. If they go to college once or twice a week, they waste their time in useless talks. They do not take part in healthy extra-curricular activities. They are fond of smoking and vulgar movies. This is a very sorry state of affairs. If the teachers, parents and the government do not fulfil their obligations, our education system will be ruined.

I am very fond of reading books. Therefore, I spend my free time mostly in the college library. I read the books sitting for hours and benefit from the great scholars of the world. Sometimes, I wonder why the majority of the students are not seen in the library. Why is this place desolate? Why do the students not pay attention to their education? If the students develop a fondness for reading, our country will progress by leaps and bounds.

ہم پاکستان کے نوجوان ہیں۔ ہمیں چاہیے کہ محنت کریں اور پوری دیانتداری سے اپنا کام کریں۔ اپنے وطن اور اہل وطن کے لیے ایسے کام کریں کہ جو کوئی دیکھے ہماری تعریف کرے۔ وقت آنے پر اپنے وطن کے لیے جان کی بازی لگانے کی بھی پر واہ نہ کریں۔ ہر قربانی کے لیے تیار ہو جائیں اور دشمن کے ناپاک ارادوں کو خاک میں ملادیں۔ اس طرح دنیا پر ثابت کریں کہ پاکستانی ایک زندہ قوم ہیں اور

We are the youth of Pakistan. We should work hard and do our duty with complete honesty. We should do such pieces of work for our country and countrymen that whoever sees us, praises us. In the hour of need, we should not hesitate to stake our lives for our country. We should be prepared for every sacrifice and annihilate the evil designs of the enemy. In this way we should prove to the world that the people of Pakistan are a dynamic nation and do not shrink to offer the greatest sacrifice for the honour of their country.
اس وقت پاکستان بہت سی ملکی اور بین الا قوامی مشکلات میں گھرا ہوا ہے۔ ہمارے دشمن دن رات ہمیں نقصان پہنچانے کی کوشش کر رہے ہیں۔ ہم سب اس سے بخوبی آگاہ ہیں۔ ملت اسلامیہ کادشمن بہت ہی شاطر اور ہوشیار ہے۔ ان تمام مشکلات سے نکلنے کے لیے ہمیں ایک مخلص، دیانتدار اور محب وطن رہنما کی ضرورت ہے۔ جو ہمیں تباہی اور اذیت کے اس منجدھار سے نکال سکے

We need to learn a lesson from our glorious past.
تندرستی ایک بڑی نعمت ہے۔ لیکن آدمی جب تک تندرست رہتا ہے اس نعمت کی قدر نہیں کرتا۔ جب کوئی معمولی سی بیماری بھی آکر اسے گھیر لیتی ہے تو اسے اس کی قدر معلوم ہوتی ہے۔ اگر جسم کے کسی حصے میں کوئی تکلیف ہو جاتی ہے تو سارا جسم اس کا اثر قبول کرتا ہے۔ تندرستی ہو تو کھانے پینے ، چلنے پھرنے اور کام کرنے میں جی لگتا ہے۔ صحت خراب ہو جائے تو کسی چیز میں مزا نہیں آتا۔ جولوگ اکثر بیمار رہتے ہیں ان کی زندگی خود ان کے لیے اور ان کے دوسرے متعلمین کے لیے وبال جان بن جاتی ہے۔ بیماری سے تکلیف الگ ہوتی ہے اور دو اعلاج پر خرچ الگ ہوتا ہے۔ بیمار آدمی زندہ در گور
Good health is a great blessing. However, man does not value this blessing so long he is healthy. When a minor disease attacks him, he realizes its value. If some part of body is in pain, the whole body feels its effect. If one is healthy, one enjoys eating, drinking, walking and working. If the health breaks down, one cannot find any pleasure in anything. The life of those people who often remain ill becomes a burden for them and their relations. On the one hand they suffer pain and on the other hand spend money on medicine and treatment. A sick man is a living corpse.

OR Our National Poet
“Personality begins where comparison leaves off. Be unique. Be memorable. Be confident. Be proud.” (Shannon L. Alder)
A great man is one who serves humanity heart and soul. But no man is great who is great only in his life time. The test of greatness is the page of history. History is replete () with the noble deeds (JL) of men whose sole () and sacred () aim of life was to help and guide their fellow men. We read and recall, commemorate and commend ( US) the names of great scientists, artists, philosophers, politicians and poets whose tireless and selfless efforts brought comfort and peace to the suffering humanity. They die but their death makes them immortal because they live in our hearts.
Dr. Muhammad Iqbal is my hero in history. He is my favourite personality. He is our national poet. He is also known as Allama Iqbal. He was a great scholar and philosopher. He was born in Sialkot on the 9th November 1877. The name of his father was Sheikh Nur Muhammad. Allama Iqbal had great love for religion even in his childhood. He received his early education in Sialkot. He passed his Intermediate Examination from Murrey College. He studied Arabic and Persian with great love. He came to Lahore and joined Government College Lahore. He studied Philosophy there. After passing his M. A. examination, he became a teacher there.
He went to Europe for higher studies. He got his Ph.D. in Philosophy from Germany. He also got his law degree in 1908. His stay in Europe was very good for him. He observed everything of the West very carefully. He learnt a lot of things there. He compared the East and the West and concluded that the East is better than the West in every aspect (4). He expressed his view about that in his poetry. His poetry gives a message to the Muslim not to follow the Western culture. He believed that Islam is better than all the religions and civilizations () of the world. He did not stay there for long and returned to India. He started his legal practice. He soon left it because he did not like it.
He was sad to see the bad condition of the Muslims in every field of life. He observed that the Hindus were not sincere with the Muslims. He saw that the Muslims were unaware of their backwardness. He wanted to tell them that they should wake up from their sleep of ignorance. He wrote many poems. He devoted () his life to Islam and the Muslims. It was he who told the Muslims that they should try to get their own separate homeland.
“If you want to discover the true character of a person, you have only to observe what they are passionate
His poems were so inspiring that the Muslims realized their duties and started their struggle for Pakistan. It was he who requested Quaid-e-Azam to continue his struggle for Pakistan. His message was for everyone. The Muslims were so much impressed by his poetry that he was given the title of Allama Iqbal. He inspired not only common people but also leaders. Even after his death his poetry is there to impress and guide the Muslims. This great poet and philosopher died in 1938. He was buried beside the main gate of the Badshahi Mosque.

My Aim In Life
OR My Ambition In Life
OR The Dream Of My Life OR The Profession Of My Choice
“Great ambition is the passion of a great character”
Aim or ambition in life is inevitable. It gives us direction for our efforts to achieve it. It is like the guiding star. If a man is unaware of his destination his struggle in life will be fruitless. There can be as many aims or ambitions or dreams as men. Some want to become doctors. Some are ambitious to become Engineers. Some wish to become civil officers. Some are keen to become army officers. Some desire to be writers, novelists, playwrights or poets. Thus, ambition or aim varies from person to person. My aim or ambition or dream of life is to become a Professor of English. There are some reasons for which I want to adopt the profession of teaching at college level. These are:
Teaching is a very noble profession. The best people in the world are those who teach others. This is the only profession which enables a man to serve his Nation properly. A teacher is like a ladder. Like the ladder, the teacher remains at the same place, but helps others to rise in life. It is, therefore, better to become a doctor- maker, an engineer – maker or an officer – maker instead of becoming himself a doctor or an engineer or an officer.
“The aim if reached or not makes great the life”
It and acknowledged fact that only men increase the dignity and greatness of a nation. Such men are produced in the educational institutions. I am fond of reading, writing and teaching. This profession will assist me to lead the life of a scholar. I am ambitious to become a Professor of English because English literature is my favourite subject.I am taking a deep interest in my studies. Having adopted the profession of teaching, I hope to produce and prepare such men as would be of great service to the nation. Being a teacher, I can also serve my nation by writing such books as can build up the character of my people and make them good citizens.
To conclude, aim or ambition or dream of life occupies a great importance in human life. A man or a nation cannot make progress in the world in the absence of aim or ambition or dream of life. I am fully satisfied with my name on ambition or dream of becoming a Professor of English as it suits my taste and nature.
My Last Day At College
Like an old photograph, Time can make a feeling fade.
But the memory of happy days Stays and never fades away.
The 31st of March was my last day in the college. After one month, the examination would start. I was feeling mixed pleasure – happy and sad at the same time. Only one side I felt relieved at the end of the academic year. I worked hard to achieve my goal during the last two years. I had got 470 marks in the first part and was sure of getting good marks in the second part. I wanted to become a doctor in future. The very feeling that I was now nearer to my goal made me happy. In this way, it was very important day for me.
On the other side, it was the moment of parting. The present days of the past came to my mind and made me sad. I recalled my first day in the college. It was the day of joking and fooling by the senior students. After one year, I was myself a senior boy and played many jokes on first year students. The sweet memories of the two years were fresh in my mind. There was a smile on my lips and tears in my eyes.
“The happiest memories are of moments that end
when they should have.”
In our college, there is a tradition that the junior students give a farewell party to the senior outgoing students. The last day in the college is made a memorable occasion for them the college was decorated with buntings and flags. First of all, we assembled in the lawn of college for a group photograph. Then, we went to the college hall for further activities .The principal of our college presided over the function. The representation of the first year class made a farewell speech He paid thanks to the second year students for their co-operation and guidance. He pledged to follow the foot-prints of the seniors. I, on behalf of my class fellows, made a speech. I paid thanks to the teachers for their self-less efforts to enlighten the minds of the students. I also appreciated the first year students for arranging such a splendid function in the
honour of the outgoing senior students. I made a promise that the second year students would work hard to brighten the name of the college.
Then, the worthy principal made an elegant speech. He advised us to perform our duties honestly as a student and as a citizen of the civil society. In the end, our principal gave us his blessings and wished us success in our future career. It was an inspiring and memorable speech. All the students clapped when he finished his speech .The formal speeches were followed by a variety show. It was organized for the entertainment of the students and guests. The students sang song, recited poems and couplets befitting the occasion. They also performed a few fun fair items. At the end of the show, we were served with tea, biscuits, cakes and fruit. The farewell party was a great success in every respect.
It was the end of a splendid span of two years at my college. I had spent a lot of happy time there. I took part in debates and sports activities and won many prizes. Some of my teachers greatly influenced me and enlightened my outlook. I also made a few new friends whose nice company was unforgettable for me. When I was leaving my college there were tears in my eyes.
Farewell, my friends! Farewell, my foes!
My peace with these, my love with those.

During shifting of the classes from one room to another, the senior students also came to make first year fools of us. They welcomed the newcomers with funny moments. My first impression of the college is still fresh in my mind.
I am proud of being a student of Government College. I am greatly impressed by the lovely building, the vast playgrounds and the charming greenery of the college. It’s laboratories are well equipped. Students come here from all over the Punjab. Every year, many of our students secure merits and positions in the board examination.
The staff of the college is highly qualified. The professor are kind, polite and punctual. They are well dressed and well mannered. They guide the students in academics and sports activities regularly
The college life is quite different from that of school. It is interesting and thrilling. Students enjoy full freedom and actively participate in co-curricular activities of the college. They are considered mature enough to act upon the college rules. My class fellow are very brilliant and hardworking. I am enjoying myself very much in this great institution.

Why I Love Pakistan OR Patriotism
There is a love, for which I cannot hide,
It comes from deep down inside. A passion that burns so bright, That for it I am willing to fight.
Imagine you have no country of your own. Where would you go? No country would accept you. You would not have any place to live. You would not have any identity. What would you do? Of course, you would try to get your own country. For this purpose, you would give sacrifices. You may lose your parents, sisters, brothers and children. They may be killed. You may leave your home, your business and all your belongings to reach that country. Then one day you may get a country of your own. Would you not love it? You would, because it would be the fruit of your struggle, your identity and God’s blessing to practice Islam.
Thank Allah I have a country. I have my Pakistan – a land of ‘Pak or pure people. It is my homeland, my identity. I love my Pakistan not only because it is the best country in the world but also because it has given me everything I ever wanted.
The love of Pakistan is in my blood. My body and mind respond to its songs. I am in a state of happiness. I feel thrilled. I start singing the same tune with the singer. I am so pleased that I feel like dancing. I feel proud of being a Pakistani. I do not feel easy when I am in some other country.
People love someone because of two very obvious reasons. First people love someone because of his or her beauty and charm. Secondly, people love someone if he or she has good qualities. We see that Pakistan fulfills these requirements. It has everything that any country of the world can claim to have. It has high mountains, green forests and wild life. It has rivers, canals and sea. It has charms of village life. It has cities with all the modern luxuries and comforts. In fact, my Pakistan is so beautiful that it is counted among the most beautiful countries of the world.
I love Pakistan because of her strong family system. Here family life is given the top priority. If men work hard to earn bread and butter (s), women sacrifice a lot to make this family life a success. Pakistani women prefer their family to all the comforts. Here the elders are not sent to old houses to die.
I love Pakistan because it has given me everything I wanted. I have a home, every facility and opportunity to grow. I do whatever I want. I have freedom of expression. I can choose the representative of my choice. I am free to practice my religion. When I go somewhere I am given respect because of my Pakistan. So, Pakistan is my identity, my first love. “I am sure that with your support and co-operation, I can look forward to Pakistan becoming one of the
greatest nations of the world”
