The Composite Melody Of Life

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

There is no doubt that you meet in life things of ugly bearing standing close to objects pleasing to the eye. You listen to the melodious note of the nightingale along with the disturbing note of the crow. The composite melody of life is to be composed of a diverse variety of notes. Such is the law of harmony in life.

“The seven heavens and the earth raise their voice of praise, neither is there aught which doth not celebrate his praise; but their notes of praise, ye understand not.”

Surah: Al-Isra’ (The Night Journey) – Chapter: 17 – Verse: 44
