Book Description

11 July 1991 Oxford India Paperbacks
Though much of Iqbal's best poetry is written in Persian, he is also a poet of colossal stature in Urdu. Shikwa (1909) and Jawab-i-Shikwa (1913) extol the legacy of Islam and its civilising role in history, bemoan the fate of Muslims everywhere, and squarely confront the dilemmas of Islam in modern times. Shikwa is thus, in the form of a complaint to Allah for having let down the Muslims and Jawab-i-Shikwa is Allah's reply to the poet's complaint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 14 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
This book does NOT promote war or terrorism. Previous reviewer needs to understand the text before putting out such false statements about a beautiful text.

Would I buy this book? No - you can find the full text through a google search. Everyone must read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Poetry but with Caution 12 May 2009
By Imran M. Salim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have not personally read this specific book but I am great fan of Shikwa and Jawab-E-Shiqwa; though with a caution as his text can be interpreted (twisted) by extremists to justify wars (terrorism) as Iqbal has glorified wars and victories of Muslims during their renaissance (old days).

However, it is an excellent 'self' criticism and 'sincere' description of plight of Muslims. Iqbal accuses Muslims for their plight due to their own deeds (ignorance), which in my opinion is 100% true.
