Islamic Urdu Poem #2:

by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad

In the Love of Allah/God and Mankind

Edited and Translated by Sheikh Muhammad Tufail


He who lives in humility is the one who finds his Beloved.
O thou experimenter with other ways try this recipe too.

Only those who are near to God are alive.
It is they, having been accepted by God, who have become His dear friends.

They are far removed from God who are far away from righteousness.
They are at all times the prisoners of haughtiness, pride and vanity.

Friends, righteousness means the abandoning of haughtiness,
The getting rid of the habit of pride, vanity and miserliness.

Give up the love of this transient world.
For the sake of your Beloved, give up the path of mirth and jollity.

Accept the life of hardship in all sincerity,
So that the angels from the empyrean heights may descend on you.

Give up conceit and vanity — that is what righteousness is.
Make yourselves lowly and humble — that is where the pleasure of God resides.
