"To give Iqbal the #NobelPrize is an insult to Iqbal; he should have a prize named after him", these were the comments from a gentleman from Romania voicing his objection to the posthumous nomination of Iqbal for the Nobel Prize.
If the Muslims of today fail to recognise the message of Iqbal, which was in essence a revival of the Puritan teachings of the Qur'an, than they will never emancipate themselves from the depths of darkness that envelop them.
Some consider asceticism to be the height of human greatness. Others perceive power and strength to be the climax of human achievement. Iqbal struck the balance between these extremes reminding humanity that their reality is neither purely spiritual, nor purely material; it is a compendium of both.
Thus he highlighted the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as the perfect role model, as portrayed in the Quran, who at the zenith of his career was the uncrowned king of Arabia yet he slept on the floor on a bed that left marks on his back. Power not attained for the greed of the self, rather for the sake of God and for the service of humanity; thus becoming a mercy to all the worlds.
The more the Muslim of today emulates this balance the more he realises his essence; his khudi. And when these emancipated khudiis amalgamate their struggles, they will then emancipate the world to the light of liberty, equality, and justice: in one word "#Tawheed"!
