The Nation is celebrating the 143rd birth anniversary of Allama Iqbal, who was a philosopher, thinker, and poet of the East today.
Allama Muhammad Iqbal was born on November 9, 1877, in the Sialkot district of Punjab. His passion for poetry was also born from here and his teacher Maulvi Mir Hassan had a big hand in promoting this passion. After doing FA, he went to Lahore for higher studies and got a BA and MA from Government College Lahore.
Allama Iqbal is the person who dreamed of an independent Islamic state, though he did not live to see his dream being fulfilled. But one thing that should be noted is that, if one wants to achieve something big in his life, there is a need for a genuine thought process for it.
Iqbal was like the head coach of the team who wanted to build a separate country for the Muslims. Not only did he use his poetry to awaken the spirit of freedom in Muslims, but his intellectual messages became the main reason for creating a wave of awareness among the Muslims of the subcontinent.
Dr. Muhammad Iqbal started participating in politics along with advocacy. He is a well-known poet, writer, jurist, politician, Muslim Sufi, and one of the most important personalities of the Pakistan Movement.
Similarly, it is the need of the time that we use his teachings and take lessons from his poetry to polish our views, and skills. We should look around in our daily routine and try to adopt his ideology and transform Pakistan to one of the greatest nations of the world.
