Indian Islam


Oneness of thought and Faith alone
Can make a Society last for long
That revelation is schism indeed
That fails to make this bond much strong.

Oneness of thought and Faith can be
Defended with arms robust and strong
The wit that God bestows on man
Does not befriend a man for long.

O man of God, you lack such strength,
Go seek retreat in cave forlorn,
Arid sit there like a hermit old,
Worship Almighty Lord night and morn.

Devise such faith whose mystic thought
May have mien meek and slavish trend.
And side by side there may persist
Despair that has no bound and end.

The leave allowed to Muslim Priest
To bow and bend, 'fore God to pray
Makes that artless fellow think
That Ind is free from foreign sway.
