Introduction to Iqbal Studies Recommended Reading List

I put together this list of recommended reading materials after completing the "Introduction to Iqbal Studies" course, offered by the Marghdeen Learning Centre.

This very affordable online course (and others too offered by the MLC) is highly recommended. It is a great introduction into the works of Allama Iqbal and their relevance to today's world.

The online courses were created by Khurram Ali Shafique. He has received national awards, including the Presidential Iqbal Award for his works in Iqbal Studies. The courses are certified by Iqbal Academy Pakistan. and are being offered in coordination with Dr. Iqbal Society of North America (DISNA) and Topline Publishers Pakistan.

I hope this list will help those who choose to participate. For more information, go to:
