Man and Destiny: Some Reflections on Iqbal's Concepts of Khudi and the Perfect Man is a timely contribution by Abdur Rashid Siddiqui that brings into sharp focus the real intellectual and idealogical ethos of Islamic resurgence. He has delved deep into the mind and soul of Iqbal - an illustrious poet-philosopher of Islam as well as one of the key political figures of the Indo-Pakistan sub-continent - and presented in a simple and lucid style two cardinal concepts of Iqbalian thought. Contemporary Islamic resurgence can be understood in its historical perspective and idealogical connotations only by having a deeper understanding of the thoughts and contributions of its cheif architects, among whom Iqbal occupies a very distinct position. This beautifully written book will enable the younger generation of Muslims in particular to have a better understanding of the message and spirit of Islam, and its relevance to the contemporary world. It will also help Western readers develop a better and more realistic appreciation of the spiritual, moral and intellectual roots of contemporary Muslim resurgence.
