Understanding A.M. Iqbal’s Vision on Perfect Man

Imam Bahroni


This article tries to elucidate A.M Iqbal’s vision on the concept of perfect
man. Its significance is at the point that Man can transform both his being and
his surroundings according to his own desires and aspirations. He actually makes
improvements upon what is created by God. God created night, he invented
the lamp; God created clay, and from it he made the cup; God created deserts,
mountains, forests, orchards, gardens, and groves. He makes glass out of stone
and turns poison into an antidote. God created the world, but he made it more
Iqbal’s reasoning amply justifies belief in the ascendancy of man over
the universe and his predicted perfection. The perfect man is the ultimate end
of the revolutionary process, and he is developed out of the present man, just
as the full moon is developed from the crescent.
