Sale price$28.70


 Iqbal was one of South Asia's most well-known Muslim poets. He was a thinker, lawyer, philosopher and reformer. He advocated strongly for the rights of Muslims in the time of British colonial rule of India. He also had a dream of a separate Muslim state, which would one day become that of Pakistan. 

Man and Destiny: Some Reflections on Iqbal's Concepts of Khudi brings into sharp focus the real intellectual and ideological ethos of Islamic resurgence. The author has delved deep into the mind and soul of Iqbal and presented in a simple and lucid style two cardinal concepts of Iqbalian thought. The concepts of Khudi (self) and Insan-i-Kamil (the perfect man) are keys to the understanding of Iqbal's vision of man.
