علامہ اقبال اور مغربی تہذیب کی فکری بنیادیں
Keywords:Allama Iqbal’s critical viewpoint, Western cultures, atheism, capitalism
This article discusses Allama Iqbal’s critical viewpoint about the western ideology against the Islamic Ummah and the humanity. Their understanding towards the scientific theories led them to atheism and sheer capitalism. Enmity among human being, selfishness, egoism and materialism are common features their cultures. Their secular life style has added nothing but their low mentality in life. Both the world wars were the result of such mindset. Hundreds of the people were brutally killed and starved to death. Iqbal gave his message to the youth to get stronger to face the challenges of the world as there are still many works in the various field of knowledge undiscovered which need to be discovered. The European scholars thought some of the scholarly discussion new and fresh in the nineteenth century which the Arabic scholars had already discussed centuries back. The basics of Ian Einstein’s theory were already discussed by the Islamic scholars in the past.
