The Reconstruction of Religious Thouht in Islam

This is the only prose work that Iqbal got registered through copyright like the nine books of his poetry. Iqbal perceives the humanity to be an organic unity that has been developing like a single individual through history. The work of Islam, having started more than a thousand years ago, has succeeded in facilitating the cognitive development of the humanity up to the stage of concrete thought where a new method of spiritual development is required. The seven lectures of this book are supposed to work as a provisional solution in the absence of such a method or perhaps even facilitate its discovery. Accepting Nature, history and intuition as faculties of knowledge, Iqbal concludes that religion its higher form empowers the individual for a direct vision of Reality and the ultimate aim of Islam is a spiritual democracy that was inconceivable in the past.
