The Hindu Poet who Loved Prophet Muhammad(Peace be upon him)
When the British still ruled India in 1940, there lived, in Delhi, a well-known Hindu poet by the name of 
Dillu Ram Kausari
.
Now, this poet, though a Hindu, wroteencomiums and poems [Qasida/Na’at] in praise of the Prophet Muhammad (uponhim be blessings and peace) called ‘Aab-e-Kausar’.
He became famous for writingsuch poetry and his poems became well known to such an extent that it scandalised hisfellow Hindus who accosted him and said,
“Dillu Ram, what is the matter with you? Youhave disgraced the name of Hindus! You are a Hindu and yet you sing praises of and write poetry praising the Prophet of the Muslims?
 Do not stop me”
, answered Dillu Ram,
“For I am forced to write such poetry.”Who or what is forcing you?
his fellow Hindus asked.
“I am forced by my love,”
he cried.
“I have fallen in love with the Prophet!“How can you, being a Hindu, fall in love with the Muslims’ Prophet?”
they asked, perplexed.To this Dillu Ram replied,
Love is not forced it just happens.“How much do you love the Prophet then?”
they asked him, still astonished that one of their own could love the Prophet. To this Dillu Ram wept like a lover departed from his beloved and recited a poem of his. He said:
Kuch ‘ishq e Muhammad mein nahin shart e Musulman!Hai Kausari Hindu bhii talabgaar e Muhammad!Allah re! kyaa raunaq e bazaar e MuhammadKe Ma’bood e Jahan bhi hai kharidaar e Muhammad!
 Being a Muslim is not a condition for loving Muhammad! Kausari, the Hindu, is also a seeker of Muhammad! By Allah! How delightful is the bazaar of Muhamma For the Lord of the Worlds is also a buyer of Muhammad!
They left him in disgust. The poetry of Dillu Ram became more widespread and onequatrain, in particular, shocked the entire community in India, both Muslims and Hindus.In this quatrain he imagined himself on the Day of Judgement and wrote these words,which were published (as were many of his other poems in various Urdu monthlies) in aUrdu magazine called “Maulvi” which was printed in Delhi.
 
This was the controversial quatrain:
Rahmatulilalamin kay Hashar mein maana’ khulayKhalq saari Shaafa e Roz e Jaza kay saath haiLaykay Dillu Raam ko jannat mein jab Hazrat gayeMa’loom huwa kay Hindu bhi Mahboob e Khuda kay saath hai!
The meaning of “Mercy unto the Worldsbecame apparent on Judgement Day:The whole creation is with the Intercessor of The Day of AcquittaWhen the Prophet took Dillu Ram with him into Paradise It was known that this Hindu too is with the Beloved of God!
This quatrain scandalised both Hindus and Muslims! It annoyed the Hindus who objectedto his continued praise of the Prophet and it scandalised the Muslims who were angered by the sheer audacity of this Hindu to speak like that about the Day of Judgment! “Howcan a Hindu go to heaven?” they asked.Undeterred by this criticism, Dillu Ram continued most of his life to sing the praises of the Prophet although he never became a Muslim and remained a Hindu. It is also said thatDillu Ram, delirious with his love, would sometimes stand in the middle of the bazaar inDelhi, put chains around his neck and feet and shout at the top of his voice to all passers- by,
“Muhammad! Muhammad! Muhammad! Yes! Muhammad is the Beloved of God!Muhammad is the first and only Beloved of God! If God loves you, He loves you becauseof His Beloved!”
Some people even stoned him and he would often come home coveredin blood but he was totally lost in his love of the Prophet
(peace and blessings be uponhim!)
As he got older, his fame as a poet
(and infamy)
spread and when he became seriously illit was reported in the various literary magazines throughout India including in “Maulvi”.It was reported in this magazine that when he was on his deathbed, seriously weakenedand surrounded by well-wishers, friends, family, and admirers of his poetry includingmany other poets, he was so weak he couldn’t leave his bed. Strangely, he continued tostare at the door and after a while his face brightened and he got up and stood on his feetand hands-folded, asked all those gathered there to also stand up. Astonished hisintimates asked him,
“What is the matter?”
Weeping Dillu Ram said,
“The one whom I have spent my whole life praising has arrived! The blessed Father of Fatima (upon himbe peace and blessings!) is here, visiting me! And I have not even accepted his religion! How generous my beloved is!”
