Sir Mohammed Iqbal was born in Sialkot, in 1886.

Mysticism has been a favourite topic of most of the eminent poets of Urdu and Persian.
Iqbal's philosophy was influenced by earlier poets of Persian and Urdu, but he emphasized the teachings in Quran, while he connected the philosophy of Moulani Rumi and Ghazali, (of 11th century A.D.) stressing the superiority of the spiritual discipline and purification of heart over the intellectual experiences. Iqbal's theory of human evolution is optimistic in character. He is the expounder of the theory of the preserving self which is considered to be the center of life in man. It leads to a glorious and powerful life with its dormant will force. Each self, (a form of ego, in good spirit), is unique. It consists of the feelings and thoughts, guided by God. By the self discipline and self guidance the ultimate reality in us reveals its secrets. Daily prayers bring us close to the greatest ultimate source, the Lord. Quranic conception is (17:87) ' And they ask thee of the soul, say the soul proceedeth from my Lord's command, but of knowledge only a little to you is given'.
