Sir Dr. Muhammad Iqbal (علامہ محمد اقبال / Allama Muḥammad Iqbāl; November 9, 1877 - April 21, 1938), commonly referred to as Allama Iqbāl (علامہ اقبال, ʿAllāma meaning "The Learned One"), was a Lahori Muslim poet, philosopher and politician in British India. He wrote his works in Persian and Urdu.
Iqbal was a strong proponent of the political and spiritual revival of Islamic civilization across the world, but specifically in South Asia; a series of famous lectures he delivered to this effect were published as "The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam" but many Muslim scholars does not accept the concepts given in the book as Iqbal wrote. Rather his Poetry is more acceptable than his Prose.
One of the most prominent leaders of the All India Muslim League, Iqbal encouraged the creation of a "state in northwestern India for Muslims" in his 1930 presidential address.
Iqbal encouraged and worked closely with Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and he is known as Muffakir-e-Pakistan ("The Thinker of Pakistan"), Shair-e-Mashriq ("The Poet of the East"), and Hakeem-ul-Ummat ("The Sage of Ummah").
He is officially recognized as the national poet of Pakistan. The anniversary of his birth (یوم ولادت محمد اقبال - Yōm-e Welādat-e Muḥammad Iqbāl) is on November 9, and is a national holiday in Pakistan.
Charagh Hassan Hasrat, a well known writer and poet has written an article on Allama Iqbal on the 133rd birthday of Iqbal. I could not post that article on that day as I could not spare sometime for that. But now I am going to share the article with you guys.
I hope you will like it and it would add some knowledge to you about Iqbal and his lifestyle.
The resolution of the article is not much better so it would be recommended to save the image in your computer before reading.
