اے رب زالجلال اے اللہ!
صبح صادق کے وقت ایک گناہ گار لیکن غلامِ رسول ص کی صدا ہے
اپنے حبیب ص کی اس امت کو پھروہ عروج دے
لوٹا دے وہ عمری دور وہ علم وہ حکمت وہ جہاد وہ کمال
کامل فتح دے اسلام🌙کو پاکستان کو🇵🇰
ہاں دکھادے اے تصور پھر وہ صبح وشام تو
دوڑ پیچھے کی طرف اے گردشِ ایام تو

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced that the Turkish show Ertugrul would be broadcasted on state-owned channel Pakistan Television Corporation from the beginning of Ramzan. The then special advisor to the prime minister (SAPM) on information Firdous Ashiq Awan had said that the government took the initiative as the premier wanted to protect Muslims’ social values and religious norms. The poster shared by the minister seems to have been inspired by a similar show.
