Glorious Allama Iqbal is the figure who has given Muslim Ummah how to think above than any ordinary human. His literature and philosophies which are based on Islam are the gifts for Muslims around the world. Unfortunately, in our era, his messages are not being conveyed to the children using modern ways, and there is a big room which can be improved by thinking creatively.
In addition to philosophy, lack of children books in the Urdu language is also unavoidable. Our generation is inclined towards foreign culture and languages, due to lack of storytelling and imagination appreciation in our society.
About the Book:
"Irteqa-e-Shaheen" is the only book in Urdu Adab which is built with the concept to leverage creative ideas for children using Iqbal Philosophy.

Following five different poems are converted into children stories "Aik Marka aur Makhi," "Pahar aur Gulheri," " Aql o Dil," "Tarana-e-milli" and "Sitaro say agay jahan aur bhi hain."
These Urdu stories are made so that a poem can be understandable for the children without losing the spirit of Iqabliat.
