    Sarham AhmadA.I. Hall

    Muhammad Iqbal (1877-1938)

    is one of the preeminent-writers of

    Indo-Pakistan subcontinent. Indeed

    the attention he has received from

    numerous writers, translators and

    critics from western as well as Islamic

    countries testifies to his stature as a

    world literary figure. While his

    primary reputation is that of a poet.

    Iqbal has not lacked admirers for his

    philosophical thought. He has in fact

    been called the more-serious scholar

    philosophical thinker of modern

    times. The frequently used

    appellation of "Poet-philosopher" is

    thus well deserved. The hyphen in

    the phrase is all important. Iqbal's

    poetry and philosophy do not exist-

    in isolation from each other, they are

    integrally related. His poetry serves

    as a vehicle for his thought. Iqbal

    wrote poetry in Urdu and Persian,

    and several collections in each

    language exist.

    Iqbal was born in Sialkot. In the

    present day province of the Punjab

    in Pakistan, in 1877. He received his

    early education in that city, where

    one of his teachers was Mir Hasan

    an accomplished scholar who

    commanded a knowledge of several

    Islamic languages Mir Hasan gave

    Iqbal a thorough training in the rich

    Islamic literary tradition. His

    influence on Iqbal was formative.

    Many years later (1922) when the

    English Governor of Punjab proposed

    to the British crown that Iqbal be

    knighted in acknowledgement of his

    literary accomplishment, Iqbal asked

    Mir Hasan also be awarded a title.

    To the government remark that Mir

    Hasan had not authored any book,

    Iqbal responded that he Iqbal was

    the book Mir Hasan had produced.

    Mir Hasan received the title of

    Shamsal-ulama (Son of Scholar).

    For higher education Iqbal went

    to Lahore (1895), where he enrolled

    in Government College, in 1899

    obtained a degree in law (1898). In

    Lahore, a major center of academic

    and literacy activity, Iqbal soon made

    a name for himself as a poet. One

    of the teachers of government college

    Iqbal admired most was Sir Thomas

    Arnold. Arnold too, had great

    affection for Iqbal, he helped Iqbal

    in his career as a teacher and also

    encouraged him to undertake several

    research projects. When Arnold

    returned to England in 1904, Iqbal

    wrote a touching poem in which he

    expressed his resolve to follow

    Arnold to England. The very next

    year, in fact Iqbal left for study at

    Cambridge. His choice of Cambridge

    was reputed for the study not only

    of European philosophy but also of

    Arabic and Persian. In his three years

    of stay abroad, Iqbal obtained a B.A.

    from barrister at London Middle

    Temple (1906) and earned a Ph.D.

    from Munich University (1908). After

    returning to Lahore in 1908 Iqbal

    taught philosophy at Government

    College for a few years. In 1911 he

    resigned from Government Service

    and set up legal practice. Meanwhile

    he continued to write poetry in Urdu

    and Persian, Asrar-i-Khudi (Persian)

    was published in 1915 translated to

    English as the secret of the self

    (1920) by Professor Reynold

    Nicholson of Cambridge. The book

    introduced Iqbal to the west. Asrar-

    i-Khudi was followed by several other


    Rumuz-i-Bikhudi (1918),

    Payam-i-Mashriq (1913), Bang-i-

    Dara (1924) etc.

    O that our autumn - Stricken



    A flower - bud like this!

    O that in our ashes would be


    O lord

    A spark like this!

    In our desert is hidden many a

    deer still.

    Many of flash of lighting.

    Iqbal is capable of writing biting

    satire. Two examples give one

    another adversary, in which satan

    argues that he deserves a better rival

    than Adam and Scorpion land, which

    criticizes slave mentally.

    A.I. Hall

    As I am living in Allama Iqbal

    Hall, one of the residential halls of

    Aligarh Muslim University, then is

    my responsibility that I should know

    and think about the name of this

    residential hall. So, I have decided

    to write about that great personality

    on whose name the name of hall is.

    But my little knowledge and broken

    words are not suitable to describe

    that personality. No matter, I am

    writing some valuable things of Sir

    Dr. Mohammed Allama Iqbal's life.

    You also know about Sir Iqbal

    and if you don't know then you

    should know at least about his work

    and thoughts for the Muslim

    Community. We know that Iqbal

    was a great poet only which is

    wrong. Allam Iqbal 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.
