Every great creative artist revises his art and sometimes sorts out the essentials in this work of art. Allama Muhammad Iqbal, like his Urdu Kalam, has also chosen his Persian poetry strictly. There are several reasons for this choice. He was a prolific poet. Sometimes a part of a poem or a Masnavi would have to be cut if it exceeded the appropriate limit. Sometimes the poet feels the need for a partial or total change after he has composed it. Sometimes his poetry is an emotional and immediate reaction to an event that he may not later find appropriate. Poets also write temporary poems for their friends, which do not find a place in their work later. Allama Iqbal also deliberately ignored many poems while compiling Persian works. While studying the personality of Iqbal in modern times and the evolution of his ideas, it is very important to collect the remnants of his Persian poetry.
