Treasure Island

Mohammad Muzzammil

(2nd July,1986 / Bahraich, India)

Muslim


Those who are muslims just for name,
They really Islam defame,
No future they have nor any aim,
Like a candle without flame.

A true muslim is beneficial like a tree,
Who is blessing and symbolizes peace,
Invites to worship only one God, be free,
To believe not only words but deeds.

    Thanks for poems
    One of many worlds born empty
    of all men (Mankind) must have had one or many poems
    each of these poems must have more
    love than all men put together... right - writes (Report) Reply

    Very soothing. Islam can't be judged today by what muslims act. Muslim is one whose hands and tongue never harm others.
    Actually there are some so called intellectuals including world media are busy in defaming Islam. Islam is the religion of peace.
    A muslim should not act repugnant to the teaching of Quran. When he does so, he turns an eye sore to everyone's eye and thus he becomes the source of its defamation.
    So if we wish to judge Islam, we should study its teachings.
    I really liked your poem.
    Very poignant indeed. (Report) Reply

    You compare religion to a tree, and that's great because a tree is symbol of wisdom and peace, I am sure that wise people know true meaning of being muslim, I know it, thanks for sharing thoughts through poetry. (Report) Reply

    I like it since it seems to give a better, more true perspective on Islam. And yet, you must admit Islam is also very damning to stubborn unbelievers, very unforgiving. But it does offer to the unwitting world the purer side of Islam. (Report) Reply

    Simple words but carry a very true fact about the religion. To those who think they are real Muslim by words and rhetoric just like a parasite towards religion.

    Promoting peace by kindness and compassion with no prejudice or bias..... that is the true meaning of religion.

    Realistic poem. (Report) Reply
