The Muslim Body

We who know not the prison walls of country,
Resemble sight, which is one though it be the light of two eyes,
We belong to Arabia and China and Persia,
Yet are the dew of one smiling dawn

We are all under the spell of the eye of the cup bearer of Medina,
We are united as wine and cup

- Iqbal
