Being Muslims we make no home and false ties,
From a circle aloof, we are nine skies.
He taught us a kowtow from which we knows
The price of each god to whom the men how.

1.         Here none (is adverb) means not at all.
This lofty idea of Iqbals universalism and cosmic approach can be seen in another verse of Iqbal.


The cosmic man stayed not on earth or sky,
With East or West made this poor sort no tie.

In East it is a sort of humble way to address oneself as a poor dervesh, as a poor Soov, a sinner. It does not mean actually drunk. It is just an etiquette to address ones self in an humble way.
