A Tribute From the Poet
- by Kazi Nazrul Islam22
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! From Allah comes today Rahmat, Kauthar. Those of whom Allah is patron This victory is of them, It is the victory of God's Will, Not for our vain fame.
It is a victory, but Merely the stepping stone, no more; From so much bondage-affliction Toward above we have to soar.
So much division, schism Jealousy, greed and arrogance, All these will simply disappear With His one merciful glance.
You are the new travelers You are bound toward Him, Following your footsteps Here comes a heavenly beam.
Yes, coming are the travelers Young warriors of new age, Soon world's misery and suffering Will be confined in their cage.
[Original: Kabir Proshosti (Bengali) , Translator: Mohammad Omar Farooq]
I Have Been Caught in Your Love's Snare
- by Kazi Nazrul Islam18
I have been caught in your love's snare, my eternal husband Peace eludes me everywhere because of you. If I want to hide inside me, my heart gets burnt- How can I hide in this fire, my lord You can't utter your dumb heart's thoughts, at your tongue's edge Can't express nor hide such is the pain inflicted by you. One who has seen you even once can't find words to describe your beauty And mindlessly cries all day long, love-torn and helpless.
[Original: E kon mayay felile; Translation: Abu Rushd]
