If God be within the mosque, then
If Ram be within the image which you
Hari is in the East: Allah is in the
All the men and women of the world
Note: Born in Benares around 1440 to Muslim parents, Kabir became a disciple of Ramananda, a Hindu ascetic. His poetry depicts the influence of both religions on him. He was a weaver by profession, but in the eyes of his followers he was both, a Sufi and a Brahman saint. The poem above was taken from, "Songs of Kabir" translated from the Hindi by Rabindranath Tagore.
