On Fasting “An inquiry”

Ramadan approaches when the new moon is being born

Some one ask if I am fasting?

What should I say O poor child asks the rising sun?

Can a soldier trained to kill make love?

Is it a noble pursuit to sell alcoholic beverages and narcotics?

How can one fast and abstain from divine will?

Is fasting merely a way to beat hunger?

Or is it mean cleanness of the soul and body?

Loss of faith means loss of mysticism not God entirely

Fasting is for God only not to be pious in the eyes of a republic

How can one fast when one is already hungry and a fool?

Surely the righteous one knows God lives in the heart not in the image of man made rituals

There is a dawn in me missing the sun
