Middle Eastern Poets

The City of Saba > Rumi

The City of SABA was written in the 13th century by the Sufi mystic poet Jalal ad-Din Rumi and translated and recited in our film by Coleman Barks. What is so striking about this poem is it’s relevance to what is happening in our SABA – Washington, D.C.

#MUHAMMAD > a response to ‘Innocence of Muslims’

A powerful response to the agitprop video “Innocence of Muslims” which defends the integrity of the Prophet Mohamed without calling for retribution of violence by # TalkIslam

The young Egyptian poet’s name is unknown.

Statement:
“Find out who the real Muhammad (pbuh) was. He was a lover of the environment, a women’s rights liberator, a carer of the orphan, a man of mercy and of justice.
This isn’t only a response to the cheap film that was made but also a means to let everyone know who Muhammad (pbuh) truly was.”
