IQBAL -The Philosophical Test of the Revelations of Religious Experience

Family of the Heart - DIALOGUE & DISCUSSIONS 

Dear Pervaiz Sahib
Below is a chapter from Iqbal's "Reconstruction of religious thought in Islam" in which he deals with the contemporary arguments for the existence of God and shows their inadequacy. Yet Iqbal tries to prove the existence of God based on Quranic verses. Its not clear to me what is his basis for taking Quran as a true word of Allah and how does he go about proving Allah's existence. May be you can shed some light on it. Thanks
Zafar
Note: Can you forward this mail to Dr. Farzana Hassan. I need her opinion about the arguments put forward by Allam Iqbal.

Scholastic philosophy has put forward three arguments for the existence of God. These arguments, known as the Cosmological, the Teleological, and the Ontological, embody a real movement of thought in its quest after the Absolute. But regarded as logical proofs, I am afraid, they are open to serious criticism and further betray a rather superficial interpretation of experience. ...more
