What Allah said to the Rose
And caused it to laugh in full blown beauty,
He said to my heart
And made it a hundred times more beautiful.
* by... Jalauddin Rumi is perhaps the most widely known Muslim poet in the world. Even after the passage of almost a thousand years his poems and writings are avidly read by people all over the world. In fact, today in the West, he is the most widely read poet among both Muslims and non-Muslims.
ps:/ if some of us still remember, this beautiful poem was discussed in the tuesday halqa last few years =)
