Product description

Review

A late but central work of the Islamic Nahda at its climax, comparable to Abdhuh or Rida's. The most fascinating probably is the way Iqbal merges a scientific approach and an indisputable spirituality through a clever exposition of metaphysics as a unifying ground. Sincerely, this book presents what I deem is the best source of optimism for whoever questions the ability of "cultures" or "civilizations" to understand each other; arguably westerners may think that Iqbal like Abduh is too much obsessed with the idea of giving evidence of the superiority of the Islamic Spirit over Christianity, but overall it is a rare pleasure to jump from Whitehead to Al-Beruni, from Bergson to Ibn-Khaldun, etc. Iqbal's mind is sharp and even faithless people like me will find "The reconstruction of religious thought in Islam" inspiring as it brings a balanced understand of the wholeness in life. For those who are familiar with his poetry (especially "The Secrets of the Self"), they may regret the briliance of it; but the meaning is also far more accessible for it was originally a set of courses given in Hyderabad during the pre independence era. --By Larrauri Clément on April 3, 2013

A book on the Islamic thought process that is banned in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the so called custodians of Islam tells a lot what this book has to offer! Not an easy read but highly recommended! --By Saladin on June 27, 2013

Sir Mohammad Iqbal is one of the greatest poet, philosopher and theologists (yet secular) of all times. He understood Qur'an and Islam probably like no one else did. His poetry and his books reflect that. It's said that his poetry is an excellent translation of Qur'an, and I couldn't agree more. He was a barrister at law from GB and was given the title of 'Sir'. He however returned to India and gave the concept of Pakistan, a separate country from Muslims, to Mohammad Ali Jinnah. --By Noah A. Lefevre on August 29, 2014

About the Author

Sir Muhammad Iqbal (Urdu: ) (9 November 1877 21 April 1938), widely known as Allama Iqbal ( ), was an academic, poet, barrister, philosopher, and politician[1] in British India who is widely regarded as having inspired the Pakistan Movement. He is considered one of the most important figures in Urdu literature,[2] with literary work in both the Urdu and Persian languages.[1][2] Iqbal is admired as a prominent classical poet by Iranian, Pakistani, Indian, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan and other international scholars of literature.[3][4] Though Iqbal is best known as an eminent poet, he is also a highly acclaimed "Muslim philosophical thinker of modern times".[1][4] His first poetry book, Asrar-e-Khudi, appeared in the Persian language in 1915, and other books of poetry include Rumuz-i-Bekhudi, Payam-i-Mashriq and Zabur-i-Ajam. Amongst these his best known Urdu works are Bang-i-Dara, Bal-i-Jibril, Zarb-i Kalim and a part of Armughan-e-Hijaz. [5] In Iran and Afghanistan, he is famous as Iqb l-e L hor ( ) (Iqbal of Lahore), and his poetry enjoys immense popularity among the masses, as well as strong support from ideologues of the Iranian Revolution. [6][7] Along with his Urdu and Persian poetry, his various Urdu and English lectures and letters have been very influential in cultural, social, religious and political disputes over the years.[5] In 1922, he was knighted by King George V,[7][8] giving him the title "Sir".[9] While studying law and philosophy in England, Iqbal became a member of the London branch of the All India Muslim League.[4][5] Later, in one of his most famous speeches, Iqbal pushed for the creation of a Muslim state in Northwest India. This took place in his presidential speech in the League's December 1930 session.[4][5] In much of Southern Asia and Urdu speaking world, Iqbal is regarded as the Shair-e-Mashriq ( , "Poet of the East").[10][11][12] He is also called Mufakkir-e-Pakistan ( , "The Thinker of Pakistan") and Hakeem-ul-Ummat ( , "The Sage of the Ummah"). The Pakistan government officially named him a "national poet".[4] His birthday Y m-e Wel dat-e Mu ammad Iqb l ( ) or (Iqbal Day) is a public holiday in Pakistan.[13] In India he is also remembered as the author of the popular song Saare Jahaan Se Achcha.[14]
