Iqbal’s Concept of God

Salman Raschid
Iqbal’s Concept of God provides a pioneering assessment and critique of the doctrine of God as developed by Sir Muhammad Iqbal in his celebrated work The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam. Reviews of the First Edition ‘A pioneering assessment…a non-conformist approach towards understanding Iqbal.’ – World Islamic Times ‘…provides, perhaps for the first time, a critique of Iqbal’s doctrine of God as developed in his celebrated work.’ – Muslim World Book Reviews ‘It contributes seriously to the wider study of mysticism and problems on the ontological status of deity.’ – Professor Ronald Hepburn, Edinburgh University ‘It is provocative…I am sure it will add greatly to understanding the thought of Iqbal.’ – Professor Abdus Salam, F.R.S., Nobel Laureate ‘The book is well written and cogently argued…I am sure that a sound but critical study like this could do a great deal to provoke thought about Iqbal and similar writers.’ – Professor Geoffrey Parrinder, University of London ‘… (the) analysis of the connections between Iqbal’s thought and that of the great Western thinkers like Hegel is new and suggestive.’ – Professor Jacques Berque, Collège de France
