Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal (Urdu: علامہ سر محمد اقبال; November 9, 1877 – April 21, 1938) was a Muslim poet, philosopher and politician born in Sialkot, in the British Raj (now part of Pakistan since the 1947 Partition of India), whose poetry in Urdu, Arabic and Persian is considered to be among the greatest of the modern era,  and whose vision of an independent state for the Muslims of British India was to inspire the creation of Pakistan.  He is commonly referred to as Allama Iqbal (علامہ اقبال‎, Allama meaning “Scholar”.)
