The Ark of Ahmadiyya

Poem
Yusef A. Lateef
Al-Nahl, Summer 1994

Therefore:

Let those who wander aimlessly in the midst of disbelief - come aboard
The Ark of those who move toward the olive branch - get on board.
Let those who with their hearts, hear the call to prayer and peace - get on board.
Let those who, with pure hearts, come in the name of the Lord - get on board.
Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say,
"Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord" (Matthew 24:39).
Let those who repent - get on board.
Let those who desire to avoid the floods of hatred, the winds of discontent,
which moves one towards immorality and harshness - enter the Ark.
Let those who love God, and so doing, desire to serve mankind - enter the Ark.
Let those who wish to share their knowledge with mankind - enter the Ark.
Let those who seek divine guidance - enter the Ark.
For a hundred years people have been entering the Ark of Ahmadiyya.
O Mankind! Get on board, there's room for many a more.
