Every time I read these lines, I am totally lost...it's so impressive to read such things...just makes me spell bound...gives me the assurance that god is always there with us and within us..need I say more?

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene, I noticed footprints on the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only. This bothered me, because I noticed that during the low periods of my life when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints. So I said to the lord, "You promised me lord that if I follow you, you would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there have been only one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you the most, have you not been there for me? " The lord replied, " The times when you have seen only one set of foot prints, my child, is when I carried you." - Margaret Fishback Powers

If God be within the mosque, then to whom does this world belong?
If Ram be within the image then who is there to know what happens without?
Hari is in the East: Allah is in the West.
Look within your heart, for there you will find both Karim and Ram;
all the men and women of the world are HIS living forms.
Kabir is the child of Allah and of Ram: He is our Guru, He is our Pir.

So what difference does religion make? Don't all religions direct man to god? The only difference is that they use various channels, their paths are distinct. Whether I do "Puja" or do "Ibaadat", whether I read surahs from "Koran" or recite shlokas from "Gita" whether I go to the mosque or go to temple- my goal is to reach him. He is my Allah, he is my Bhagwaan, he is my Waheguru and he is my Masiha. He looks down from the heavens and guides me along the life's trecherous but worthy journey. He is by my side in thick and thin, in richness and in poverty. So today and forever, I salute this supernatural power and thank him for making this world a wonderful place to be in!

Shuru uske naam se jo bada meharbaan, nihaayat reham wala..Insaaf hai jiska hakim. Ai Parwar digar! Hum teri hi ibaadat karte hain aur tujhi se madat mangte hain. Humko seedhe raste chala. Un logon ke raste jinpe tu apna fazal-o-karam karta raha. Unke nahi jinpe tu gusse hota raha aur na gumraahon ke...Aaj ek baar phir hum tujhse panah mangte hain. Tu hi sabka malik hai jo humen har ek buraai se bachata hai.....Tu na kisi ka baap hai, na kisi ka beta hai aur na koi tera humsar hai...Tu hi bhagwan hai, tu hi allah hai aur tu hi masiha hai! Hum tujhe beshumaar namon se pukarte hain lekin tu ek hai..! Jab hum galat raaste par chalne lag jayen tou humen sahi raasta dikha ..!


Jo bhi bura bhalaa hai allaah jaantaa hai
bande ke dil mein kyaa hai allaah jaantaa hai .......
Ye farsh-o-arsh kya hai allah janta hai
pardon mein kya chhupa hai allaah jaantaa hai ........
Jaakar jahan se koii vaapas nahin hai aataa
vo kaun si jagah hai allaah jaantaa hai .......
Nekii-badii ko apne kitnaa hi tu chhupaaye
allaah ko sab pata hai allaah jaantaa hai ........
Ye dhoop-chhaon dekho ye subah-shaam dekho
sab kyun ye ho raha hai allaah jaantaa hai ............
Kismat ke naam ko tou sab jaante hain lekin
kismat mein kya likha hai allaah jaantaa hai
