Abdur Rashid Siddiqui's well-researched book Man and Destiny: Some Reflections on Iqbal's Concepts of Khudi and the Perfect Man is a timely contribution that brings into sharp focus the real intellectual and ideological ethos of Islamic resurgence. He has delved deep into the mind and soul of Iqbal and presented in a simple and lucid style two cardinal concepts of Iqbalian thought. The concepts of Khudi (self) and Insan-i-Kamil (the perfect man) are keys to the understanding of Iqbal's vision of man and his role in history.

Contemporary Islamic resurgence can be understood in its historical perspective and ideological connotations only by having a deeper understanding of the thoughts and contributions of its chief architects, among whom Iqbal, one of the most illustrious poet-philosophers of Islam occupies a very distinct position.
