If I Don't Love, I Have Nothing

IF I DON'T LOVE, I HAVE NOTHING
MATLOOB BOKHARI

If I Don't Love, I Have Nothing
If I worship more than arch angel but don't love
I have nothing
If I give all I have to the poor, but don't love
I have nothing
If I have faith which moves mountains, but don't love
I have nothing
If I give gold in alms as big as Ohad but don't love
I have nothing
If I die circumambulating the Kaaba, but don't love
I have nothing
If I die fighting in the holy war, but don't love
I have nothing
If I die and buried in the tomb of prophet but don't love
I have nothing
If I get land larger than Solomon's Kingdom, but don't love
I have nothing
If I receive God's healing power like Christ but don't love
I have nothing
If I am given un paralleled patience like Ayub but don't love
I have nothing
If make sacrifice like Ismael and Hussain but don't love
I have nothing
If I am given the kingdom of whole world, but don't love
I have nothing

No matter what I have done, no matter what will I do
Without wings of love, I cannot soar in the kingdom of God
When my Beloved opened the window of love
I saw the sun kissing the earth out of love
I saw no thorn in the rose garden of love
I saw no chains of life and death
I saw no hunger of heaven, no fear of hell
On the wings of love, my soul soared out of two worlds
There I saw with my eyes
My Beloved is Truth
My Beloved is Light
My Beloved is peace
My Beloved is Love

Tod McNeal Matloob, you have become my favorite poet of all time. You write magic as God/Allah flows through you to the tip of your writing instrument! Salute! I SALUTE YOU
Matloob, it's time to consider including these poems in a book and entering your amazing write in some poetry contests dear friend. People must know your out of the world work! ! ! ! ! ! !



Michele Vizzotti-White Your writing is so original I feel like I am flying with the words at the end...brilliantly versed : I like the fast pace of it, but it still is rich in thought/words


Natasha Nabokov: reading your poems, I am reminded of Tagore who is my first love
Sylvia Frances Chan Your mesmerizing poetry is in full bloom presented in its flowery language. By using these metaphors, you have created again another archaic poetry. My great compliments, dear poet friend! This is so heart warming in this time where everyone uses rude language. I have enjoyed and am overjoyed your captivating write! ! !I will send you my poems with the names ofSylvia Tjan. I have not received youramazing and wonderful poems. So very impressing. I have started teachingand sharing your work here.
Angela Davis: matloob, your work is so amazing!

Laura Luce del: Hello Matloob Thanks., Its an amazing, understandable & great write. I hope you are blessed throughout the rest of yoir life. Never stop writing! ♡LLM

Vincent Boykin: I admire your courage in writing about Love in a serious relationship with the spiritual. It's shows your heart and that you understand Love. Love is usually just some word in the cosmos. Love bonds everything in good. Love. Super Poem! It's how I took it. It made my day. Thank you.
Demelia Denton: An amazing poem Matloob.... Enchanting...beautifully worded

Fay Slimm: Ah - - how true are these words Mat. - love is all we need and nothing more. An inspiring read.

Seyed Mohammad Reza Parhizgar: this is why you are called Matloob, but I have something better than love, and that's ***.thanks dear friend I loved your poem.

Sara Fielder: I agree, love should be the motivating factor in everything we think, do, and say. The world would be a better place if we all remembered that.

Stephen Montgomery: My favorite line is: all I can sense the cogs turning in this sincere post which has come to an understanding; Love must be everything because love conflicts with nothing. Hold everything sacred and nothing suffer
