Description :
A compendium of one of the greatest South Asian poets of all time. This volume aims to introduce Allama Muhammad Iqbal's poetry to the English speaking world. The poems included are representative of Muhammad Iqbal's body of work, and the thematic arrangement reflects the diversity of the subjects he dealt with.
The national poet of Pakistan, Muhammed Iqbal (1887-1938), is widely credited with having launched the idea of a separate Muslim homeland which came to fruition with Muhammad Ali Jinnah's campaign for an independent Pakistan. However, Allama 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 'Tulip in the Desert' presents in English a representative selection of Iqbal's works.
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.
