Knowledge and Love

Knowledge said to me, Love is madness;
Love said to me, Knowledge is calculation

O slave of calculation, do not be a bookworm!

Love is Presence entire, Knowledge nothing but a Veil. 

The universe is moved by the warmth of Love;
Knowledge deals with the Attributes, 
Love is a vision of the Essence; 

Love is peace and permanence, Love is Life and Death:
Knowledge is the rising question, 
Love is the hidden answer.

Kingdom, faith and pride are all miracles of Love;
The crowned kings and lords are base slaves of Love; 

Love is the Space and the Creation, Love is Time and Earth!
Love is conviction entire, and conviction is the key!

The luxury of destination is forbidden in the religion of Love;
Fighting the storms is permitted, 
but the comfort of the shore is forbidden;

Lightning is permitted to Love, Harvest is forbidden.

Knowledge is the child of the Book, 
Love is the mother of the Book.

Allama Iqbal
