Iqbal Day 202109th Nov, 2021
“Failure is not fatal until we surrender, trying again is the key of glorious victory”
Today 9th November 2021, the nation observes 144th birth anniversary of the national poet and philosopher Dr Allama Muhammad Iqbal. Iqbal played an instrumental role in inspiring million of Muslims in the sub-continent to seek an independent homeland where they can practice Islam freely. Allama Muhammad Iqbal was born in Sialkot on 9th November 1877. He was a poet, philosopher, politician, lawyer, scholar and is known as one of the most important figures in Urdu and Persian Literature.
Iqbal was a strong upholder of political and spiritual revival of Islamic civilisation. According to Iqbal, the first step towards Islamic Revolution is through education, by inculcating the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah. He motivated muslims especially youth to acquire education and practice Islamic teachings. He strongly felt that there should be an independent state where Muslims can practice their teachings freely. Thus, he laid the foundation of Pakistan and made intense efforts towards achieving an independent state for Muslims where they can practice Islam freely. His poetry is motivational and inspirational.
At Olives School, we observed this day by having a brief discussion about Iqbal and his contributions towards Pakistan to students in all classes.
