(Selected Translations, Commentary and Annotations)

Dr. Jamil Asghar Jami

"The selections, the translations and the arrangement of the material are all admirable... The book ought to be in every library concerned with Iqbal Studies and in the hands of every reader to whom a thorough understanding of Iqbal is a continuing need."

-Dr. Abdur Raheem Kidwai, Professor of Islamic Studies, Aligarh Muslim University, India.

"Iqbal has not been fortunate with the English translations of his poetry. Translations that are faithful to the text and context, and yet maintain the eloquence and elegance of the English poetic idiom, are few and far between. Here is a fine specimen. A valuable addition to the growing body of translations that brings his message within easy reach of the English readership."

-Muhammad Suheyl Umar, Former Director Iqbal Academy Pakistan and Visiting Scholar, International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilization, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

"Dr. Jamil Asghar Jami has translated 125 verses of Iqbal into English. Translating poetry is not an easy job. Capturing the spirit of the verse and transporting it in the diction of another language with different cultural connotations is a challenging task. However, this labour of love is equally significant and a much-desired activity. Dr. Jami has accepted the challenge and translated Iqbal's poetry in an eloquent tongue. His translation, despite being simple and true to the original text, has a poetic force in it and makes a good read."

-Dr. Najeeba Arif. Dean Faculty of Languages and Literature, International Islamic University, Islamabad, Pakistan.

"Dr. Jami is a genuine intellectual, a teacher and a researcher with extensive reading. His scholarly, natural and practical appropriateness with reference to Iqbal's thought is as much authentic as his expertise in the field of translation studies. He is well-acquainted with the subtle literal and semantic features of the text as well as the nuances and delicacies of sublime poetry."

-Dr. Moeen Nizami, Oriental College, Punjab University, Lahore, Pakistan.

"Professor Dr. Jamil Asghar Jami has made a sterling effort to publicize Iqbal's message by rendering 125 of his verses into English. The selection of the verses is admirable and the translation is neither literal nor explanatory. [Alternatively.] he has tried to capture the spirit of Iqbal's poetry. For this, he deserves my deepest felicitations."

-Dr. Asuman Belen Ozean, Head, Department of Urdu, Ankara University, Turkey
