A timely contribution that brings into sharp focus the real intellectual and idealogical ethos of Islamic resurgence. The author 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. 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 well 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.
