Allamah Iqbal's Bang-i-Dara
Bang-i-Dara—Call of the Marching Bell, which forms the subject of this book combines literary with intellectual excellence. The book contains very useful background information on Allamah Iqbal and Islam in Chapters 1-3. Similarly, Appendices I and II provide concise though comprehensive, information on all the luminaries of Islam and other prominent personalities and concepts mentioned in this book. As the knowledge of Islam, Islamic history and world history from the Muslim perspective is a pre-requisite for proper comprehension of Allamah Iqbal's works this need has been fully satisfied in the above portions of the book and in "Introductions" and "Explanatory Notes" of individual poems. The author has rendered valuable service to Islam and to Iqbal studies by enabling the English knowing admirers of Allamah Iqbal to understand him. The organization of the book has greatly enhanced the literary beauty and usefulness of Bang-i-Dara.
