The Gift of Hijaz

The ninth book is the final work of Iqbal's poetry and came out a few months after his death. The journey on which he took along the readers with him thus culminates on a gift from Hijaz (the part of Arabia associated with the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him). The gift is for everyone: the first part, which is in Persian, consists of five sections respectively addressed to (a) God; (b) the Holy Prophet; (c) the Muslim Nation; (d) the Humanity; and (e) the Like-Minded. The second part, consisting of Urdu poems, includes a vision of the Devil's "Parliament" asks his counselors to concentrate their work against the Muslim nation since Islam has the potential of challenging a diabolical and unjust world order on behalf of the entire humanity.
