Javid-Nama, by Muhammad Iqbal
Muhammad Iqbal, Javid-Nama, Translated by A. J.-Arberry, Routledge 2011.
The recurrent theme of Iqbal s poems is the infinite potentiality of the human being as the will of God shaping the destiny of the universe. As an ardent Muslim, Iqbal saw the realization of mankind s future in a union of Islamic peoples, unfettered by the bonds of separate nationhood, fully liberated from the chains of imperial domination. The Javid Nama commonly acknowledges as his greatest work, develops this theme within the framework of the Isra and Miraj.
