The Gandhi-King Community

For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment



Khan
Abdul Ghaffar Khan

"I say that no
peace or tranquility will descend upon the people of the world until
nonviolence is practiced, because nonviolence is love and it stirs courage in
people."

                                 -Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan

 

For Tamim
Ansary

I whisper
that this Khan was a whisker in the beard

of The
Prophet, God bless his memory.

Khan copied
The Prophet's life of Non-Violence

which The
Prophet lived fourteen hundred years ago.

Khan saw in cold-stone, Ka'aba-terms that

all places shine in Mecca's crack of brilliance
and

The Call-to-Prayer's source hides in echoes

repeated like a tear of cloth in the simple
phrase:

"God is the all merciful and the all
compassionate."

The violent erect governments hidden in States

while wearing the clothes of belief which hides
true intent.

Doers of love do not say. They do! Do not let
those who say,

kill in hate. Become doers and not lying slayers.

Submit to doing love for the rest of your
Non-Violent life.
