Iqbal was a very talented student and got a gold medal in Philosophy at the Graduate level. He could write in three languages, Urdu, Farsi and English. He was famous for his works in three languages and for his patriotic songs, such as- Saare Jahan Se Achcha.
Iqbal's poetic works are written mostly in Persian. Among his 12,000 poems, 7,000 are in Persian. iqbal seeks to prove that Islamic way of life is the best code of conduct for a nation's viability.A man cannot realize "self" out of society. He sees the individual and his community as reflections of each other. The individual needs to be strengthened before he can be integrated into the community, whose development in turn depends on the preservation of the communal ego. It is through contacts with others that an ego learns to accept the limitations of its own freedom and the meaning of love.
