"Sir Muhammad Iqbal (Iqbal, Sir Muhammad - علامہ اقبال),
distinguished lawyer, philosopher, poet, as learned in Western science as in Eastern
tradition, inspired millions of his fellow-Muslims in India to fight for self-reform, and
self-realization as a necessary prelude to independent nationhood. He played a leading
part in that most exciting drama of modem times, the revolt against internal corruption,
and against external domination." This site offers in-depth access to the materials
on his life and works and provides necessary links for further probe and study.
Iqbal - Poet Philosopher of Pakistan - was an heir to a very rich literary, mystic,
philosophical and religious tradition. He imbibed and assimilated all that was best in the
past and present Islamic and Oriental thought and culture. His range of interests covered
Religion, Philosophy, Art, Politics, Economics, the revival of Muslim life and universal
brotherhood of man. His prose, not only in his national language but also in English, was
powerful. His two books in English demonstrate his mastery of English. But poetry was his
medium par excellence of expression. Everything he thought and felt, almost
involuntarily shaped itself into verse.
