Shikwa, or Complaint, was one of the best works of the remarkable poet-philosopher: Allama Muhammad Iqbal. Shikwa is primarily a despaired and exigent cry of a dismal, yet beseeched believer, for his beleaguered community.
Shikwa was brilliant, but also controversial. However, Iqbal silenced all his critics by carving out a hard-hitting and thought provoking Jawab-I-Shikwa, what was Allah’s candid reply to the Complaint.
