Published by the Islamic Foundation.

Description :

"Man and Destiny: Some Reflections on Iqbal's Concepts of Khudi and the Perfect Man" is a timely contribution by Abdur Rashid Siddiqui that brings into sharp focus the real intellectual and idealogical ethos of Islamic resurgence. He has delved deep into the mind and soul of Iqbal - an illustrious poet-philosopher of Islam as well as one of the key political figures of the Indo-Pakistan sub-continent - 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 and his role in history. Contemporary Islamic resurgence can be understood in its historical perspective and idealogical connotations only by having a deeper understanding of the thoughts and contributions of its cheif architects, among whom Iqbal occupies a very distinct position.

This beautifully written book will enable the younger generation of Muslims in particular to have a better understanding of the message and spirit of Islam, and its relevance to the contemporary world. It will also help Western readers develop a better and more realistic appreciation of the spiritual, moral and intellectual roots of contemporary Muslim resurgence.

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.
