von Goethe and others. They are not always successful and since they are creating new ideas and challenging old ones, they often suffer a backlash that may even cost them their lives in the process. Man wants to live. They find followers rather than companions. “Insan-i Kamil”: The Prophet as the Muslim Superman. Nietzsche, like Wagner, also praised the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, calling him a “genius” and celebrating the fact that he fought the papacy while seeking “peace and friendship” with Islam. Nietzsche's idea of "the overman" (Ubermensch) is one of the most significant concept in his thinking. He accuses Nietzsche of plunging a dagger into the heart of the West and says that his hands were soaked with Christ’s blood. Zarathustra further links the Übermensch to the body and to interpreting the soul as simply an aspect of the body.. Man is something that is to be surpassed. For Nietzsche, Christianity and Islam have a perverse relationship in the sense that while he demeans and shows contempt for the former, he turns towards the latter and elevates it. It was dominated by often ignorant and decadent rulers and there was chaos and corruption in its societies. Bekir Alboğa, the secretary general of Germany’s largest Islamic organization, the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), when interviewed for my project Journey into Europe in Cologne, described Goethe as “a brother to me,” and “a great thinker with a great affinity for Islam.” Goethe “wrote a wonderful poem about our Prophet,” he said, referring to “Mahomet’s Song.” Alboğa complained that in Germany the Islamic dimension of Goethe’s work is ignored, if not intentionally suppressed. Nietzsche’s lack of spirituality for Iqbal casts the German outside the pale. Nietzsche is popularly known as a proponent of the idea that "God is Dead". Their joy is self-conquest: asceticism becomes in them nature, need, and instinct.”. Earlier in Nietzsche’s century, Thomas Carlyle had written his celebrated On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and the Heroic in History which was similar in scope to Nietzsche’s Superman idea and included several figures such as the Prophet of Islam, Rousseau and Napoleon that could over-lap with those on Nietzsche’s own list. Iqbal stated emphatically, “I wrote on the Sufi doctrine of the Perfect Man more than twenty years ago, long before I had read or heard anything of Nietzsche.” His Perfect Man could not be perfect without a strong spiritual component. It is a work of philosophical allegory, with a structural similarity to the Gathas of Zoroaster/Zarathustra. This led to the abnegation and mortification of the body, or asceticism. . That hostility is the fate of Nietzsche’s Superman. All human life would be given meaning by how it advanced a new generation of human beings. We’re hoping to rely on our loyal readers rather than erratic ads. The equation of life and earth is extremely clear to the philosopher: “I beseech you, my brothers, remain faithful to the earth, and do not believe those who speak to you of otherworldly hopes! Luc Ferry has been in the forefront of French scholars in engaging with Nietzsche and attempting to contain his influence on French philosophers. Stanley Rosen, on the other hand, suggests that the doctrine of eternal return is an esoteric ruse meant to save the concept of the Übermensch from the charge of Idealism. Dr. Ahmed has authored several books including Journey into America and Journey into Europe. That is why Superman today would find it very difficult to remain a Superman and our own choices indicate how difficult it is for Superman to survive. Nietzsche’s Superman. But, as in any species fighting for survival, man doesn’t have any intention to let the Superman come at his own expense. We have further interesting connections in the relationship of Nietzsche to Islam. This work paved the way for a softened, moralist and liberal understanding of Nietzsche — palatable for a postwar context and an American audience.
