Zinda Rood Book Summary & Review
This book has been published in parts simultaneously and in separate volumes. An in-depth biography of Allama Iqbal is under review. This volume contains all three volumes together.
The author has divided Iqbal’s biography into three distinct sections in order.
- Part I The structural period 1877-1908 (تشکیلی دور)
- Part II – Middle Ages 1908-1925 (وسطی دور)
- Part III – Closing Period 1926-1938 ( اختتامی دور)
The first part deals with the formation of Hayat-e-Iqbal. In this section, the subcontinent’s conditions are discussed, especially during the revival of Islam in the eighteenth century. It covers the birth of Iqbal and his ancestors, from November 1877 to July 1908, when he finished his education. This part ends with a very significant intellectual revolution in Iqbal’s life.
The second part belongs to the Middle Ages of Hayat Iqbal. It begins in September 1908, with Iqbal’s worldly struggle, and the period until December 1925 concludes with a review of the gradual evolution of his life and ideas. This period was a period of mental and spiritual anguish and severe loneliness for various reasons.
The third part is the final period of life of Iqbal. It begins with Iqbal’s entry into politics. It refers to 1926, the year he participated in the Punjab Legislative Council elections. This marks the end of the period leading up to his departure on April 21, 1938. It ends with a review of his private life and the gradual evolution of his ideas.
What is unique about this book is that it contains new things about Iqbal which do not appear in any of Iqbal’s biographies.
