- Excerpts from Book Hikmat-e-Rumi by Khalifa Abdul Hakim
Dr Khalifa Abdul Hakim (1896-1959) was a reputed thinker, philosopher and poet who authored twelve books and translated four from English and German. As a thinker he presented Allama Iqbal’s thoughts admirably in his works as well as Mirza Ghalib’s intellectual legacy. Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi was also his special area of interest.
Here few excerpts from his book Hikmat-e-Rumi are added related to Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi’s (r.a.) explanation of the topics Allah’s Will, Predestination, Working of Fate, Freedom of Choice and Struggle (Jabr-o-Qadar).
