The national poet of Pakistan, Muhammed Iqbal (1887-1938), is widely credited with having lanched the idea of a seperate Muslim homeland which came to fruition with Jinnah’s campaign for an independent Pakistan. However, Iqbal is best known for his Persian and Urdu poetry, which with its deep philosophical insights, has captured the minds of many readers. This translation presents in English a representative selection of Iqbal’s works.
