“Muslim Girl- The Plight of Sisters” by Awil Jama

Here is another poem by my friend Awil Jama. Many people liked his previous poem that I shared at my blog as a part of the Reviving the Muslim Youth series, which is here “Somali Boy.”

Much of what Awil Jama says here can be equally said about the plight of the Muslim Brother. However, I do hope that he would write another poem only on the Plight of the brothers, inshallah.

Allama Iqbal: The Brain Drain And The Contribution Of The East

“Iqbal, the Moslem (Muslim) poet from Lahore (Pakistan), said that the great contribution of the West to the East was the scientific attitude, the great contribution of the East being charity or love, as epitomized by Christ and Muhammad, Confucius, and Buddha.

In the West, intellect is the source of life
In the East, Love is the basis of life.
Through Love, Intellect grows acquainted with Reality,
and Intellect gives stability to the work of Love,
Arise and lay the foundations of a new world,
By wedding Intellect to Love.

This is the unfinished business which the brain drain from developing nations is retarding.” (Douglas, 156).
