I wonder if the poet of the following small poem read the Qu'ran?

If all the world were paper,
And all the sea were ink,
If all the trees
Were bread and cheese,
What should we have to drink?

Keep researching and you will find this:_

The Jewish poem, Hadamut, in the Aramaic language, has ninety couplets. The poem itself is in the form of an acrostic. It was composed, in the year 1096, by Rabbi Meir ben Yitzhak, son of Isaac Nehorai, who was a cantor in the city of Worms, Germany.

       The Hadamut poem also speaks of a certain miracle. There are three opinions as to the contents of this miracle.

       The first opinion is that the miracle was the giving of the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. Incidentally, it is for this reason that the poem is still read on the first day of the Feast of Shavuot before the reading of the Ten Commandments.

       The second opinion simply states that we really cannot know with certainty, from the references, what the actual miracle was.

       The third opinion believes that the miracle took place in the city of Worms, home of the rabbi-poet. It is thought that there was a medieval, German priest who once spoke evil of the Jewish community.


       Throughout the poem, the theme of God’s eternal love and concern for His people is evident. One section of this poem, from which the present third stanza of The Love of God was evidently adapted, reads as follows:

Were the sky of parchment made,
A quill each reed, each twig and blade,

Could we with ink the oceans fill,

Were every man a scribe of skill,

The marvelous story, Of God’s great glory
Would still remain untold; For He, most high

The earth and sky Created alone of old.


Then I found this article..written by a muslim

http://www.lohar.com/The%20Word%20of%20God%20and%20Meir%20Ben%20Isaac%20Nehorai2.pdf

And finally:-

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Poetry-678/Poetry-9.htm

Didn't quite expect these findings, and more can be found if interested.

I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind.... I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life.

Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts...

Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose—and you allow him to make war at pleasure.

O daughter of Babylon, if in a single day the Lord casts you down to the pit, destroyed on the mountains of Israel.   And in the valleys your finest sons have become but morsels for the buzzards and foxes.

Would the world sob and cry?   Would the world place a lilly on the grave?    Would anyone shed a tear?


Or would the world rejoice, as they board their flights by only showing a ticket to a smiling flight attendant?

The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it....Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity.
