Words of the Prophet

Old nemesis merged on my pathway
I guessed that his trek had been long
Diverged and returned here beside me
"In compassion be like the sun."

An African woman imparted
Dark Continent's wisdom to me
As tempered by words of the Prophet:
"In tolerance be like the sea."

"In tolerance be like the sea," these words capture what the Qur'an teaches.

Wise words and powerful poem brother.

Onward! in peace,

I thought this article was right on the money.


It's not the religion, it's the people. People can make up whatever justification they want from whatever they want.
