Allama Iqbal Essay in English For Class 9, 10
My Favourite Personality / Hero
There are many poets but I like Allama Iqbal very much. He was a great thinker and true Muslim. He worked for the cause of Indian Muslims and roused them from deep dream through his poetry. His poetry is the message of Islam.
He was born in Sialkot on November 9, 1877. Here he got his early education. Then he went to Lahore. He did his M.A from Government College Lahore. After that he went abroad. He did Ph.D. from Germany and Bar-at-Law from London. He started law practice in Lahore but was fed up soon.
He spent most of his time in poetry. He wrote many poems. His poems carry the message of Islam. It was he who gave the idea of Pakistan to the Indian Muslims. He in fact, is a national hero. Quaid-i-Azam respected him and honoured his opinions. He could not live long to see Pakistan and died in 1938. He was burried in Lahore near Badshahi Masjid.
