    Iqbal is for me what Rumi was for Iqbal. You will read this very casually at first, lying in your bed and then you will almost sit in your bed, and then you will sit upright and the book will get closer to your face and then you will lose the back support and you will sit with your legs crossed and leaning forward with the book on the bed between both your hands. You will read through stanzas and then some more and then you will return to a stanza you read 10 minutes ago and will get your mind bl Iqbal is for me what Rumi was for Iqbal.

You will read through stanzas and then some more and then you will return to a stanza you read 10 minutes ago and will get your mind blown. Your temples will throb and a warm ripple like sensation will rise from your core and travel up your chest. Then you will close it and put it beside you, and then you will try to sleep and will be taken by this thunderous storm of thoughts and you will ride the clouds elevating ever so higher and you will feel this burden being lifted and you will relax but then this sense of responsibility will arise and you will sleep determined. Waking up in the morning you will be a better person. Repeat! Once you finish the poem, start over!

Nicholson dan akhir sekali oleh Abdul Majid Haji Khatib. Sekali lagi konsep dan teori wujud dalam pandangan alam Islam berlandaskan kerangka sufi memudahkan kefahaman dalam menangkap makna yang terkandung dalam buku ini. Iqbal menulis bukan semata-mata sebagai reaksi modenisme dan imperialisme yang berlaku pada zamannya tetapi lebih penting berkongsi tentang makna diri yang hakiki dalam kewujudan manusia dan makhluk sebagai tajalli daripada kewujudan Allah Maha Agung. Daripada hakikat inilah, maka dapatlah saya fahami pesan-pesan Iqbal berikutnya kepada umat Islam baik yang berada pada zaman yang beliau saksikan sendiri atau yang sedang kita alami masa kini. Justeru, ia menjadikan karya Iqbal bukan hanya khazanah Pakistan (atau India), bahkan karya sastera umat Islam termasuk kita yang berada di alam Melayu ini. Dengan pandangan alam yang benarlah, maka kita akan betul-betul terpaku pada kesejagatan dan persamaan makna yang dibawa oleh Iqbal atau Hamzah Fansuri atau Rumi atau Ibnu Arabi kerana mereka sudah meminum minuman yang sama dari cangkir yang sama yang silih berganti sehinggalah pada bibir Sayyidini wa Maulana Muhammad SAW.

    Every poem I read in this book, is entirely different from the previous. Every stanza, every sentence has different dimensions. Very vast covering many horizons. Reaching the actual 'secret of self', you have to read it for yourself to know it. Taking a course through history, from Plato to Prophet Muhammad, from Shams-e-Tibriz to Rumi, from Imam Ali to Shah-Jahan, from Data Ganj Baksh to the current moslem; this was a reading which constantly forced me into deep thinking.

    Powerful and informative in two words. But what mainly stayed with me was the beauty with which he articulated his beliefs. For anyone who intends to read the poem, I must say its a challenge but an immensely rewarding one, which does read you as you read it. It is at once a philosophical text, a religious text, combined with Iqbal incisive intellect, aesthetic skill and literary prowess. My favorite line just to offer a taster to the idle on-looker: "Our bud enfolds a garden of roses, our eyes Powerful and informative in two words.

Appear, O light of the dark realm of change! Illumine the scene of existence, dwell in the blackness of our eyes". Must read, and if you've picked it up enjoy.

    The language is beautiful even though I can only read the English translation. I don't think I'm entitled to evaluate his philosophy, which seems to be influenced by both Nietzsche & sufism in interesting ways.

    Terdiri dari bait-bait puisi Iqbal, yang diterjemah semula dari Parsi ke Inggeris. Berharap untuk membaca Mysteries of Selflessness (Rumuz i-Bekhudi) tetapi yang terjumpa pun hanya dijual dengan harga 400 ringgit.

    So, it won't be an easy invasion to read this book and understand or feel if you don't have a good vocabulary (A proper grip). But one can explore the meaning of a word at any moment when you are reading. That's not a concern. So, it won't be a comfortable read if you lack familiarity with spiritual wisdom and philosophy.

But one can explore the meaning of a word at any moment when you are reading. That's not a concern. So, it won't be a comfortable read if you lack familiarity with spiritual wisdom and philosophy. The title of the book may inspire you, and urge the very moment to start reading it; and most importantly when it is by Poet Of The East, Doctor Muhammad Allama Iqbal, but it is not about the inspiration. It is more about understanding and perusing his thoughts within these junctions. His writings are for the posterity, so never read him with the intention of today. He proclaimed, "I have no need of the ear of To-day. I am the voice of tomorrow." . What is the self? Do you know who you are? The common answer is NO. He argues that a human has to isolate himself to gain the meaning of his existence, by imploring rectitude from the Almighty. The self is a complicated ruckus, which puts a human in the race of worldly pleasures. Hence, the result is discomfort and one remains deprived of the meaning of his existence. He was totally inspired by Rumi's spiritual teachings. His most common sayings interpret religion. And when he talks about religion, he is meant by Islam. I have a homage for him because he is considered to be the spiritual leader of Pakistan. But, the youth of today doesn't even read him, let alone understand. Anwar Masood once said, to understand Iqbal you must know the Persian Language because his majority of work is written in Persian. But there is lots of work, and almost all of his work is available in the language we understand, so do the honours. My eagerness to read, feel, understand and absorb Allama Iqbal's philosophy of self has finally welcomed me. Yet there are many oceans of him to dive in.

    Betapa kreatifnya Iqbal dalam menyampaikan pemikirannya yang kritis tentang hakikat insan dan kehidupan. Cuma, terjemahannya kurang indah. Lima bintang untuk Iqbal. Al Fatihah buatnya.
