Poems

A Ramadan meditation in verse

By Akbar Ahmed

Allah has many names

Allah is Rahman
He is Rahim
He is also Ghafoor
And known as Noor

Some have called Him Zeus
Others address Him as Deus
Some name Him Brahma
Others see Him in Atma

If you want to know Him, whatever His appellation
Look around you at the population
Black and white and the rest
From the east and the west

And if you really want to love the Lord
You need to love each and every one of His Ward
