Dear Dr. Shabbir !
Is Allama Iqbal saying that mere prostration, without standing up for the truth and real submission which is the choices and actions that are according to Allah's laws, is their wishful thinking that they are going to be forgiven and bestowed mercy upon ?! And that without the right actions, mere prostration would be eternal with no fruit ?!
As always a geat answer from you which keeps my mind thinking about it !!!
