Love Is My Religion And Lover My Name - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

O God! What you gave to me I'm giving same to others.
and that's why I love you.
You were inclined to give me anything I ask,
being shy of my sins I couldn't say I want you.
With my heart's wish intact in my heart I am roaming in the world,
this is something else everywhere I look for you.
O limitless! Your length and breadth and weight,
I am trying to measure in human made measurements.
Hoping a glimpse your view sometimes somewhere,
when I get an open window I peep inside.
You are confused in sects, I have been simplified,
I have lost my existence don't look for me.
Love is my religion and lover my name,
Wish to listen Him, "I know you."

    The essence of religion which is submission to God through love in words and deeds, is aptly captured in the poem. Writing for the edification and glorification of God Almighty is the hallmark of ingenuity. Thanks for sharing Jawal and do remain blessed. (Report) Reply

    It is man's ultimate duty to find and spread love. You have expressed beautiful thoughts. Love God n his creation and you have fulfilled your duty. Love has a binding power n it prevails when it is confronted with hatred n strife. Well penned.10 (Report) Reply
