The Principles of Islam
Know child, that God is only One,
And has no Partner or Son;
He has made us and everything,
All beasts, all fowls, all birds that sing,
The Sun, the Moon, the Starry Sky,
The Land, the Sea, the Mountains high.
He knows whatever we think or act,
By him is seen the real fact.
And only He does what He wills,
He makes, He keeps, He saves, He kills.
Fore’er the same, no age, no youth,
He is Perfection, He is Truth.
Almighty, All–Seeing, Wise,
He hath not form or shape or size.
But Self–Existing is our Lord,
And is always to be adored.
