Abstract

This paper is an attempt to examine Rabindranath Tagore's philosophy of deliverance of man as presented in one of his most celebrated plays The Post-Office (1914) in relation with the Islamic perspective of salvation of man. Tagore's thoughts are based on his profound knowledge of Hindu religious books Especially, the Upanishads and his keen observation of nature and human life on the earth. The Islamic perspective of man's salvation is based on the teachings of The Qur'an and the sayings and practices of Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon him). It is interesting to juxtapose Tagore's views with the Islamic philosophy. Key words: philosophy, deliverance, Islamic perspective, salvation, Upanishads, The Qur'an, juxtapose.
