Overview

The Secrets Of The Self
by Muhammad Iqbal, tr. by Reynold A. Nicholson

A philosophical poem by the intellectual founder of the nation of Pakistan.

Asrar I Khudi. The form of existence is an effect of the Self. Whatsoever thou seest is a secret of the Self.

The Asrár-i Khudí was first published at Lahore in 1915. I read it soon afterwards and thought so highly of it that I wrote to Iqbal, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at Cambridge some fifteen years ago, asking leave to prepare an English translation. My proposal was cordially accepted, but in the meantime I found other work to do, which caused the translation to be laid aside until last year.

I. The System of the Universe Originates in the Self
II. The Life of the Self Comes From Forming Desires
III. The Self is Strengthened by Love
IV. The Self is Weakened by Asking
V. Strengthened by Love it Gains Dominion Over the Forces of the Universe
VI. Negation of the Self
VII. We Must be on Guard Against Platonism
VIII. The True Nature of Poetry and the Reform of Islamic Literature
IX. The Three States in the Education of the Self
X. Inner Meanings of the Names of Ali
XI. The Young Man of Merv and Saint Ali Hujwírí
