Allama Iqbal's Poetry

Iqbal introduces his notion of Khudi, or selfhood.  Arising from a desire to awaken the society he makes the individual conscious of his / her vital role for social uplift. His Khudi is the consciousness by the individual of the divine attributes embedded in his / her soul by the Creator. Thus, he inspires the individual to strive to rise to godly qualities for the sake of helping out God’s creatures to have a better life. He expects the individual to be like Shaheen, the eagle whose personal needs are minimal but who is fully aware of his role in the kingdom of birds. Likewise, Iqbal wishes the individual to be continuously proactive like a wave in the ocean. He says that if the wave decides to be passive it no longer remains alive.
