The angels began to speak behind Iqbal 'This creation of clay is of heavenly nature Rumi it is not, not is it Shami, Kashi(Benaras) it isn't; nor Samarkandi; It taught the Angels the torture of Adam, It brought Adam to worship the Divine (2)Selfhood in the world of men is prophethood; Selfhood in solitude is godliness;The earth, the heavens, the great empyrean, Are all within the range of Selfhood's power.

The secret of the Self is hid, In words "No god but He alone".The Self is just a dull-edged sword, "No god but He," the grinding stone.
Yeh daur apne 'Braaheem ki talaash mein haiSanam-kadah hai jahaaN La ilaha il Allah
An Abraham by the age is sought To break the idols of this Hall:The avowal of God's Oneness can Make all these idols headlong fall.
Kiya hai tu ne mataa'-e-gharoor ka saudafareb-e-sood-o-ziyaaN ! La ilaha il Allah
A bargain you have struck for goods Of life, a step, that smacks conceit, All save the Call "No god but He" Is merely fraught with fraud and deceit.
