Best Poem of Maulana Altaf Hussain Hali

Islam: The Religion Of Unity

The Din that had built the foundation of love
Which emptied the world of all hatred and spite
Which made warring strangers as gentle as doves
From every Quom drew out the poison of hate
Arabs, Ethiops, Tajiks, Dailamites and Turks
Mixed like milk and sugar, their unity worked.
