What is Islam?

What is Islam?

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

An observation

"

Islam is

Mind, body, and spirit

Nurture, care

A metaphysical science

 

Islam is

Clothes on your back

Food you ingest

A complete lifestyle

 

Islam is

Misunderstood

Dejected

Akin to the other roads of God

 

Islam is

State of character

More than inked pages

In the eye of the beholder

 

Islam is

Islam is

Islam is

Islam is

I admit I paused because of the title. Guess I wanted to hear another's insights regarding a major holistic (in every philosophical sense) life choice ... guess you didn't have any - or perhaps were afraid to share? But I'm not arguing Faith or belief or doubts or how one lives their life - but I am always curious how others might want me to live mine.

"Every belief has its tenets, every follower has their beliefs." - me

What predeeded was a comment, THIS is the review - you did establish and set a fair pace; have a good rhythm; the tonal quality is clear.

Absolutely loved this. This is so relevant today. Islam is often misunderstood, but it is a religion like any other, and is truly peaceful and compassionate. For the followers, it means the world and helps them lead great lives. Amazing poem, much needed. Enjoyed reading it
