    Das wants to tell that this is read in the places of Sewapanthi an order of Sikhs who preach faith to Muslims also.

    kindly see an example and lin below.

    The following poem of Rumi was recited and discussed.

    English Translation
    Where are you, martyrs divine, affliction-seekers of the plain of Karbala? Where are you, light-spirited lovers, speedier on wing than the birds of the air?
    Where are you, celestial kings who know how to open heaven's gate?
    Where are you, escaped from life and place? How can anyone tell reason, "Where are you?"
    Where are you, you who have broken the door of the prison and set the debtors free? Where are you, you who have opened the door of the storehouse? Where are
    you, help of the helpless?
    You are in that sea whereof the world is the foam; swim a while more.
    The forms of this world are the foam of that sea; leave the foam, if you are of the people of purity.
    My heart foamed, which took the shape of words; let go the form, and go take the heart, if you are of us.
    Shams-e Tabrizi, rise out of the east, for you are the source of the source of the source of every radiance.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
