Muhammad Iqbal (1873 - 1938)

  • The religion of that prophet (Karl Marx) who knew not the truth, is founded upon equality of the belly.
- Javidnama
  • Turk, Persian, Arab
Intoxicated with Europe,
And in throat of each,
The fish hook of Europe.
- Javidnama
  • The possessor of a sound heart puts to test his power by entering into big adventures.
  • If one cannot live the life of the brave, then it is better to die like the brave.
  • Man's place is higher than the sky. Respect for man is the underlying spirit of civilization.
  • The man of Love follows the path of God - and shows affection to both the believer and the non-believer.
  • When the thinking of a people becomes corrupt, the pure silver becomes impure in its hands.
  • Keep away from Democracy, follow the Perfect Man,
For the intellect of two hundred asses cannot bring forth a single man's thought.
  • I tell the truth: your enemy is also your friend - his presence makes your life fuller and richer.
  • It is heavy upon the heart of the free to live in a world of others.
  • We have strayed away from God,
And He is in quest of us;
Like us, He is humble and is a
Prisoner of desire:
He is hidden in every atom, and
Yet is a stranger to us:
He is revealed in the moonlight,
And in the embrace of houses.
  • A community receives light from its history, it becomes aware of itself by remembrance of its history.
  • Preserve your history and become everlasting; receive new life from the times that have gone by.
  • Life is a struggle and not a matter of privilege. It is nothing but one's knowledge of the temporal and the spiritual world.
  • Everything that possesses life dies if it has to live in uncongenial surroundings.
  • From your past emerges the present, and from the present is born your future.
  • If truth be not glorified and elevated by our sword, going to war is not good for our community.
