Here are two examples of the writing :
“Iqbal’s moral ideal is to set man free from fear. I think the quote that represents what Iqbal believes is the “moral (or ethical) ideal” of Islam is, “It is fear, to which man is a victim owing to his ignorance of the nature of his environment and want of absolute faith in God. The highest stage of man’s ethical progress is reached when he becomes free fro, fear and grief” (Iqbal 306). Fear must be conquered and the only way for man to conquer fear is by being a united force (Iqbal 306). Iqbal’s political ideal would be social peace (Iqbal 311). I think the quote that would represent what Iqbal believes is the “political ideal” of Islam would be, “We know that both in ancient and modern times, secret meetings have been a constant source of political and social unrest. The ideal of Islam is to secure social peace at any cost. All methods of violent change in society are condemned in the most unmistakable language” (Iqbal 311).”
“One quote that shows Iqbal’s beliefs about the ethical ideals of Islam is “the highest stage of man’s ethical progress is reached when he becomes absolutely free from fear and grief.” Notably, this quote points out that pain and grief often impede the progress of man ethically. That is because he will engage in sinful acts so that he or she does not have to deal with pain and grief. If a man manages to be fearless and also effectively manage his grief, then he will make substantial ethical progress. A quote that represents the political ideal of Islam, according to Iqbal, is “All forms of political and social disturbance are condemned by the Quran in the most uncompromising terms.” That quote aims to dispel the notion that Islam is a religion that seeks violence. In many instances, that emerges to be the popular assumption about Islam in mainstream conversations. Even so, it is far from the truth given that Muslims will peacefully coexist with other people.”
I hope it will give you an idea of the writing
