His poetry reveals the life and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This article tends to explore the sensuous elements in the Naat of Iqbal. It makes a powerful influence on his style of expression. His Naat explains sensuousness's aesthetic aspects and maintains a highly developed expression. Allama Iqbal has used poetic tools such as imagery, allegory, and metaphors which exhibit a remarkable stylistic approach. This article is a key attempt to explore the novel persuasiveness and cogency within the pretext of sensuousness, used in his poetry on various aspects of Naat.
