Muhammad Iqbal

Muhammad Iqbal was a towering intellectual figure in South Asian history, revered by many for his poetry and his thought. He lived in India in the twilight years of the British Empire and, apart from a short but significant period studying in the West, he remained in Punjab until his death in 1938. His poetry was his medium par excellence of expression. Everything he thought and felt, almost involuntarily shaped itself into verse. Iqbal was deeply interested in the meaning of life, change and constancy, freedom and determinism, survival and progress, the relation between the body and the soul, the conflict between reason and emotion, evil and suffering, and the position and role of human beings in the universe.
