Science & Faith (by Allahma Iqbal) Once Science said to Faith: "My eye can see all that is in this world; The Entire world is within my net. I am only concerned with material things, What have I to do with spiritual matters? I can strike a thousand melodies, And openly proclaim all the secrets that I learn." Faith said: "With your magic even the waves in the sea are set ablaze, You can pollute the atmosphere with foul, poisonous gases. When you associated with me, you were light, When you broke off from me, your light became fire. You were of Divine origin, But you have been caught in the clutches of Shaytan. Come, make this wasteland a garden once again. Borrow from me a little of my ecstasy, And in the world set up a paradise. From the day of creation we have been associates, We are the low and high tunes of the same melody."
