About The Book

Iqbal's poems established him as a rising poet on the literary horizon of the subcontinent. His brilliance later dazzled the eyes of people living in distant countries and won for him an honourable place amongst the immortal poets of the world. It was after his return from Europe that he started his real poetic career. His transitory period was over.

His ideas had matured and he had formulated his outlook on human aspects, which lasted, throughout his life. "Asraari-Khudi" (Secrets of Self) and "Rumuzi-Bekhudi" (Mysteries of Selflessness) thrilled the literary circles of the East and the West.

These poems deliver the message he has for mankind and deal with the development of the individual self and the problems an individual faces as a member of society.

About The Author

Abul Hasan Ali Hasani Nadwi (24 November 1914 - 31 December 1999) also spelt Abul Hasan Ali Hasani Nadvi (affectionately 'Ali Miyan') was an Indian, Islamic scholar, and author of over fifty books in various languages.

He received his early education at his home in Takia, Raebareli, Uttar Pradesh, India. His mother initiated his early training in Quranic studies; he later entered formal education in Arabic, Persian and Urdu. Abul Hassan Ali Nadwi primarily wrote in Arabic, although also in Urdu, and wrote more than fifty books on history, theology, and biography, and thousands of seminar papers, articles, and recorded speeches.

He wrote the book Maza Khasiral Alam be Inhitat al-Muslimeen, translated into English as Islam and the World.

The Islamist Syed Qutb commended Nadwi's writings for his use of the word jahiliyya to describe not a particular age in history (as earlier Muslim scholars did) but a state of moral corruption and materialism.
