SummaryMuhammad Iqbal (born in Sialkot, Punjab, British India, died in Lahore, Punjab, British India), he is also known as Allama Iqbal, was a famous Poet from Pakistan, who lived between November 9, 1877 and April 21, 1938. He became 60 years old.
BiographySir Muhammad Iqbāl was a Muslim poet and philosopher from Sialkot in British India whose poetry in urdu and farsi is considered to be among the best in recent times.
Iqbal worked with law school after studying in the UK and Germany, but concentrated primarily on writing scholarly works on politics, economics, history, philosophy and religion. He is best known for his poetic work, including Asrar-e-Khudi - which got him knighted - Rumuz e-Bekhudi and Bang-e-Dara, with its ever patriotic song Tarana-e-Hind. In Afghanistan and Iran, where he is known as Iqbal-e Lahori (اقبال لاهوری, "Iqbal from Lahore"), he is particularly known for his works on farsi.
Iqbāl was one of the strongest champions of the political and spiritual revival of Islamic civilization across the world, but especially in India. He gave a series of lectures to promote these ideas, published as "The reconstruction of religious thought in Islam". He was one of the most important leaders of the All India Muslim League, and he urged the creation of a "state in northwestern India for Indian Muslims" in 1930. He encouraged and worked closely with Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and he has become known as Muffakir-e-Pakistan ("Pakistan's thinker"), Shair-e-Mashriq ("poet of the East") and Hakim-ul-Ummat ("Ummah wise man "). He has been officially recognized as Pakistan's national poet, and his birthday 9 November is a national holiday in the country (یوم ولادت محمد اقبال - Yom-e Welādat-e Muhammad Iqbal).
