A Tribute From the Poet
- by Kazi Nazrul Islam 22Allahu Akbar!
From Allah comes today
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 Islam 18I 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
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]
