Do you want to know?
What faith you follow?
Pray do not go for names and labels
Labels do not really matter
As religions do not go by brands
But goodness, substance, quality!
For what good do labels do?
Can anyone say he follows that brand of faith?
Where lies are not told,
In which hearts are not broken,
Where honors are safe from brutal hands,
Cheating is not Neatly done
Brothers do not kill brothers
Where devils do not appear divine
Where sham wars are not waged by killing the innocent?
Are we not taught that killing a human is killing the humanity?
True following of goodness norms
Forms the figure of your faith
Actions will be valued as good
If intentions will be pure
where caste and colour, race and creed
are not really followed
Do you want to know?
What religion you follow?
Well, seek for it in the fairness you think
and the goodness you do
faith is the fusion of pure preaching and fine following
We’ll justify being the human beings
If than all things we place the faith above
By staying good for following
Just goodness, peace and love! ! !
