Allama (Muhammad Iqbal) has been in my thoughts a great deal lately. He has been a faithful and inspiring guide since about the age of 13 and I feel deeply indebted to him. As it happens Allama passed away on the 21st April so this is a good time to reflect once again on the man and his teachings. Perhaps this is a worthy subject for the future, insha’Allah. For now, I am posting a beautiful rendition of his poem “La ilaha illAllah” from Zarb e Kaleem. This sums up his message in many ways.
