Description :

The Complaint and The Answer :  'Shikwa & Jawab Shikwa.' - The Human Grievance and The Divine Response. In these two poems, Allama Iqbal discusses the fall of the Muslim Ummah, probes into its causes, shows his bereavement and offers a solution along with a message of hope.


In the first poem, Iqbal complains to God about the deplorable condition of the Muslim world and society and prays for divine help. In the second poem, which he wrote a few years later, he relays a response to the complaints on behalf of God. In elaborating the causes of the rise and fall of the Muslim Ummah, Allama Iqbal hoped that Muslims would use them as a springboard for reviving their former status of prestige and glory.


This bi-lingual work is transliterated into a Romanised script, together with the Urdu, and the accompanying English translation by Abdussalam Puthige.




About the Author:

Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal was a poet, philosopher and politician born in Sialkot, British India (now in Pakistan), whose poetry in Urdu, Arabic and Persian is considered to be among the greatest of the modern era and whose vision of an independent state for the Muslims of British India was to inspire the creation of Pakistan. He is commonly referred to as Allama Iqbal‎, Allama meaning "Scholar".


Iqbal was a strong proponent of the political and spiritual revival of Islamic civilisation across the world, but specifically in India; a series of famous lectures he delivered to this effect were published as The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam. One of the most prominent leaders of the All India Muslim League, Iqbal encouraged the creation of a "state in northwestern India for Indian 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").


After suffering from illness Allama Iqbal died in Lahore in 1938. His tomb is located near the entrance of the Badshahi Mosque and the Lahore Fort. He is officially recognised as the "national poet" in Pakistan.
