Allah - Poem By Jalaluddin Rumi



I tried to find Him on the Christian cross
but He was not there
I went to the Temple of the Hindus 
and to the old pagodas
but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere.

I searched on the mountains and in the valleys
but neither in the heights nor
in the depths was I able to find Him
 I went to the Ka'bah in Mecca but
He was not there either.
I questioned the scholars and philosophers
but He was beyond their understanding.

I then looked into my heart
and it was there
where He dwelt that I saw Him
He was nowhere else to be found.

a translation from original poem by Rumi
