Abstract

The problem of defining 'time' and 'place' has been there from the beginning. When man entered the material world, he needed to measure time; the human intellect divided time into seconds to hours, months to years, and centuries. The Qur'an described the sun and the moon as it signs of Allah Almighty. Philosophers tried to explain the universe in terms of time and space. Allama Iqbal also tried to solve the riddles of time and space. He explained Maulana Rommi on the philosophical level and Einstein's theory of relativity on the scientific level. Allama's conception of existence time is reletive to that of the God. The universe is the name of a free creative movement and time is the measure of this movement. There is also another meaning of time for Allama. which is called the serial time. Serial time is constantly divided into past, present and future. For Allama, the third meaning of time is Which they define as real time. Real time is related to our Appreciative Self. For Allaah, this is the time that is not in the outer world, but in our inner world. The perfection of Allama's philosophy with regard to time and space is that he brings it to the stage of harmonizing it with the manifestation of the hidden potentialities of the human self, rather than limiting it only to scholarly discussion. And for this they make poetry and philosophy as medium.
