THE RECONSTRUCTION OF RELIGIOUS THOUGHT IN ISLAM (1930)

Introduction
Between December 1928 and January 1929, at the invitation of the Muslim Association of Madras, Iqbal delivered a series of lectures in Madras, Hyderabad (Daccan) and Aligarh. In 1930, these lectures were published under the title Six Lectures on the Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam. A later version was published in Oxford in 1934 with an added chapter, "Is Religion Possible." In these talks, Iqbal calls for the renewal of the intellectual foundations of Islamic philosophy in a manner suited to the scientific climate of the modern age. He also tries to meet the challenge of materialist thought on its own ground.
