Allah


During a visit to Jamia Masjid, the largest mosque in Old Delhi, India, on the roof I found two boys engrossed in their prayers to Allah.


Photographing them, I was reminded of the verse below by Saint Kabir on page 1349 of Guru Granth Sahib, the spiritual scripture of the Sikhs.


O people, O Siblings of Destiny, do not wander deluded by doubt.

The Creation is in the Creator, and the Creator is in the Creation, totally pervading and permeating all places.

First, Lord Allah created the Light; then, by His Creative Power, He made all mortal beings.

From the One Light, the entire universe welled up. So who is good, and who is bad?

    Great work…

  3. Mesmerized…you are a beloved child of God Who is spreading His voice through your pen and camera. Most touchy Line: There is nothing wrong with the pot of clay – there is nothing wrong with the Potter. ||2||
    We all have come from that One God and on death we will be submerged in him.

    The pictures and the a gem of quotations from a sacred book bring these words to us ” You are my brother , and I love you. ..I love you when you bow in your mosque , kneel in your temple , pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion , and it is the spirit.The leaders of this religion are like fingers of the hand of divinity, which point to the perfection of the soul. ” , once said by Kahlil Gibran .
    To roam through your blog it seems that your soul feels the way Gibran once felt.Your pictures inspires us to come out of our darkness to look up for the Light. If all of us can feel and realize this there will be Peace in this universe, it will be then a heaven.
    One of your friend Baba Ji from Pakistan also spread the essence of true religion through his pictures . Both of you are not just friends , you are soul mates.
    Fortunate of having friends like you and Baba Ji. Your pictures carry messages of humanity and speaks the language of soul, it is not just a feast for eyes.
    Regards to you, Amardeep. God bless you.
