Allama Iqbal’s last verses from Javed Nama is his last advice to his Son, Javed Iqbal. Javed Nama is Iqbal’s narrative of a spiritual journey he performs with his mentor Mevlana Rumi.
Iqbal, who called himself Zinda Rood [flowing stream of life] in this book visits places such as heaven, hell, Mars and other planets during this journey. He also meets souls such as Pharaoh, Mansoor Alhaaj , Mirza Ghalib, Halim Pasha, and Quratulain Táhirih [an actress who became influential follower of Bahai sect] and converses with them on meaning of life, state of muslims etc.
Iqbal ends the book with advice and prayers to his son, asking him to hold on to Mevlana’s Rumi’s teaching and that he will keep praying for his son from his grave.
