Allama Iqbal , Online Course

A few years ago I developed an interest to study about Allama Iqbal. It began as a curiosity, after I read two lines of his poem in Urdu.

In it Iqbal says: (this is the English translation.) Though the mosque was built overnight by the believers, our heart being old sinners for years, could not be devout.

When I read these lines my curiosity was at its height, I could not wait to find out, why Iqbal wrote this poem.

During my research, I accidentally found out, there is an online course about Iqbal. I registered for the course in 2011.

I’m still studying it. Now I feel it’s worth it, it helps me study about the poet, his beliefs and his role in carving out a country for the Muslim population in the Indian sub-continent.
