‫ﭘ ﺮ اﻗﺒ ﺎل ﻋﻼﻣہ ﻧﻈ ﺮ یک وﺳ ﻠﻢ هیﻋﻞ ﷲ یﺻ ﻞ نیاﻟﻠﻌ ﺎﻟﻢ رﺣﻤﺘ ہ ﺣﻀ ﻮر‬

Allama Iqbal praying in Mosque Qurtaba (Spain: 1933)

Allama Iqbal’s love for the Holy Prophet (‫ﷲ یﺻ ﻞ‬

‫ )وﺳ ﻠﻢ هیﻋﻞ‬has become proverbial.

His visitors have related almost unanimously that whenever there was discussion about the Holy Prophet (‫ ,)وﺳ ﻠﻢ هیﻋﻞ ﷲ یﺻ ﻞ‬Iqbal was deeply touched and tears would begin to flow from his eyes involuntarily.(1) In one of his letters, Iqbal says about the Holy Prophet (‫:)وﺳ ﻠﻢ هیﻋﻞ ﷲ یﺻ ﻞ‬ "It is my belief that the Prophet (‫ )وﺳ ﻠﻢ هیﻋﻞ ﷲ یﺻ ﻞ‬is still alive and the people of this age can get inspiration from Him as His Companions did during His mortal life."(2) Some spiritual events and mystical experiences of Allama Iqbal (‫ﷲ رﺣﻤﺘ ہ‬ mentioned in famous books, are added below.

Allama Iqbal: Spiritual Dimensions & Mystical Experiences (Part 1)/ (Part 1)

Khizr-e-Rah (The Guided Path) is a poem in Urdu written by Sir Muhammad Iqbal. It deals with the subject of the political future of Muslims. The poem is a conversation between Iqbal and Khizr (The Guide). Iqbal, while sitting alone one night, sees Khizr appear before him who asks him about the cause of his loneliness and restlessness. Iqbal tells him about many things he has failed to understand in life and Khizr explains to him the secrets of those things. The three main topics of the conversation were "the secret of life", "the Governments" and the "downfall and rise of Muslims". Visit Complete poem here

Few couplets from Urdu Poetry of Allama Iqbal related to Hazrat Khizr and his message.

There that would‐measuring courier I had sight of—Khizr, That ancient in whom youth’s colors fresh as the daybreak dwell.
