Abstract: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) gave a novel concept about ethics. He declared religious traditions and ethics superstitious. He attached morality with power and to strengthen his point of view declared God’s death. Moreover, he is of the view that the major duty of a person is to attain the power. The person who has more and more power is a real superman. In the days of Nietzsche, concept of evolution was the intellectual foundation of that age. After adding in Darwin’s theory, he said man must create a new race of human beings like superman. He thought that physical evolution has been completed however the process of psychological and ethical evolution must be carrying on. His three principles are well-known; first, replaced God with superman; secondly, man’s power instead of God’s blessing and finally urge to get more power and control instead of longing hereafter’s life. On the other hand, Power has also been commended by Iqbal without any reservations. The concept of power is the foundation of his concept of Khūdī and idea of Mard-e-Momin. Iqbal is also critical of Plato and Sufis for their escapism, which he believes, to have largely influenced the thinking of the Muslims. He seems to have realized that religion without the support of power is mere Philosophy. He was deeply concerned to determine the relation of power with religion. Iqbal through his reconstruction of Islamic thought based on a concept of power replaced the traditional concept of religion based on morality. Both Nietzsche and Iqbal consider ‘Power’ an important factor in internal and external dynamics of civilizations This research work is a comparative study of their concepts of ‘power’
