The Religion
GOD is very kind to human beings


He sent prophets to show the right path


Adam was the first of the chain of prophets


No prophet falsified his ancients


It is proved that


There is no opposition amongst the prophets


All of them came for betterment of humanity


There is no concept of change of religion


Religion is one and the same from the very beginning


However,prophets came in different ages


For rectification and completion of religion


Don't be opponent to each other


As there is no opposition


Amongst the prophets

Our Father
Moses, Christ, and Mohammad


Peace be upon them


They are the sons of Abraham


Peace be upon him


Abraham is our father


Fast friend of God Almighty


Trust in God, trust in God


This is the will of Abraham


He is the leader of the people


This is written in Book of God


Abraham is our father


Please remember dear brother

The Coming Generation
Peoples of the present world


Think and think again


Don't deceive and disappoint


your coming generation


This world is not only for you


It belongs to your coming generation also


You will not be present in future


Leaving the world in the hands of new generation


Don't destroy this world


With the flames of war


Otherwise your coming generation


Will not be happy and thankful to you


It is your duty to build a new world


For your coming generation


As a matter of fact and principle


You are indebted for the same.

The Creator of Soul
O mortal human being!


Your pride on existence is not right


Why are you hesitant to adore GOD ALMIGHTY


Is it difficult to believe in


An unseen GOD?


You can't see Him with the mortal eyes


Your sight is not reliable everywhere


What is the soul?


You are unable to see it but can't deny


You believe in the soul


But what about the Creator of soul?


Can you make something like the earth


On which you live and die


Can you create a fly,an ant or a leaf?


You are unable to understand and surround


The knowledge of GOD ALMIGHTY


Except that He wants to disclose to you


He gives life to His creatures


And maintains system of the universe


Indeed,He is the most Superior

The Creator & Supporter of All
The beautiful melody of the nightingales


The tasteful food,fruits and vegetables


The pleasant weather,mornings and evenings


Who has provided in this world for us?


All of them are gifted by the God Almighty


Indeed,all of them are gifted by the God Almighty


See the trains,cars,trucks and buses


These are,no doubt,manufactured by you


But Who has given and provided


Iron,steel and other material to you?


All of them are gifted by the God Almighty


Indeed,all of them are gifted by the God Almighty


Have you any thing in this world?


Which has not been created or given by God


Think again and answer my question


Who gives away these things generously?


All of them are gifted by the God Almighty


Indeed,all of them are gifted by the God Almighty

GOD,the Creator 
He is the Greatest,the Most Superior
He is the Holder of all Grandeur
Power,Might,Dignity,Splendor
Having all the Great Creator

He is Merciful to us forever
There is an Ocean of Divine favor
No doubt,He is Elevated Creator
None is equal, none is peer

He has endless love for creatures
He is the Lord, He is the Master
We are subjects, He is the Emperor
For the universe He is the Ruler

Phool, the poet is abject with errors
Praying for His Mercy forever

The Chief


Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) is the Chief


Of all creatures


He (p.b.u.h.) is the last


Messenger of God


None is capable and worthy


Even to untie


Thongs of his sandals


He (p.b.u.h.) is mightier than


His immediate predecessors


Who were subdued


By their enemies


Even at this


He (p.b.u.h.) is a slave


Of God Almighty


All the universe


Is slave of Almighty God


Who is One and unparalleled


There is no god but He


(Tanwir Phool)


Note:This is a prophecy available in Bible.See verses 7 to 9 of Gospel of Mark(1:7 to 1:9).Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is Gabriel ("Rooh-ul-Ameen" in Arabic).

Refulgence


Muhammad(p.b.u.h.) is the best


Of all creatures


None is greater than he(p.b.u.h.)


Except Allah (the Creator)




Adam(p.b.u.h.) knows him


Jesus(p.b.u.h.) knows him


He(p.b.u.h.) is the first


He(p.b.u.h.) is the last




The Holy Qur'aan


Is his refulgence


Forever

The Great Day of Christmas
The great day of Christmas


The day Jesus was born


According to the last book of God Almighty


In its chapter 19 and the 33rd verse


Jesus said just after his birth


Peace is on me the day I was born


The day I die and also on the day


I shall be raised to life again


All the prophets are the members of the same group


They have immense respect for each other


Let us be united with friendly relations


Most obedient of God Almighty and devout


True followers of the prophets

The Most Beneficent & Merciful
 Indeed, GOD is the most beneficent and merciful


He has given us the knowledge and power to speak


Also wisdom,skills and capability of observation


All things and abilities are created and gifted by Him


We have built the houses and decorated them immensely


Think,who has given to us all the material we used


Look, we are weaving the clothes


For the people,men and women


Who has provided the cotton


The wool and the thread


All is created and gifted


By the most beneficent and merciful

Comments of Dr. Khurshid Akram, a published Hindi, Urdu and English literature writer from Canada previously from India, on the poem"The Most Beneficent & Merciful":








"Not withstanding the medium of expression of the poem, it illustrates the universal characteristics of a complete Hamd. It is indeed a masterpiece.
The poem also reflects the notion that all the blessings we have in our lives should not be taken as granted.
Apart from a believer's point of view the poem also strengthens the idea that it is hard to believe in atheism.

With regards,

Dr. K. Akram"











Master mind of suicide attacks
Apparently, he is quite innocent, but engaged


In shedding blood of human beings


He is sitting with comfort and ease


He misleads one to commit suicide attack


With huge destruction of wealth and lives


Due to being brain-washed immensely


Perhaps he does not remember


One soldier was busy


In religious war with bravery


The Holy Prophet saw him and said


Indeed, he is hellish!


People were astonished and confused


When he was injured badly


He became impatient And made himself beheaded


The forecast of the Holy Prophet became true


It is proved that suicide in any way


Is an unlawful act


A wasteful sacrifice


Think and think again,think and think again!

A Great Woman
Mary,the mother of Jesus Christ


A great woman as declared by the GOD


In the Holy Book of GOD ALMIGHTY


There exists a chapter in her name


Moreover,the last verse of chapter 66


Clearly mentions that Mary guarded her chastity


She was devout and obedient of GOD


Her son Jesus Christ is respectable & honorable


All the prophets are the messengers of GOD


Let us be united and true followers of the prophets


Working for peace,education,charity and equality


Recognizing the relationship of brotherhood in mankind

The Message Of Humanity
You can find


The relationship of brotherhood


Easily in mankind


This idea is right and good


All the human beings


Come from the family of Adam


The faces and skins


May be different


Due to external environment


But internally the color of the blood


Indeed, is the same


This proves the fact that all


Belong to one and the same family


One who is not sincere to humanity


Indeed, is not a real member of the human race


This is the message of humanity

Value of Human Life
The value of human life
Is recognized by the GOD ALMIGHTY
In His last Holy Book
In verse 32 of the chapter 5
He clearly says that
One who kills a human being
Is guilty of murdering
All the human community
And one who saves and protects
Life of a single human being
Is recognized as a savior of
All the human community
In the vision of GOD
In verse 70 0f the chapter 17
He tells about the dignity of human being
Indeed,He is the most merciful to us
