Man Made out of Clay

Misbah loves music and, enjoy listening songs. She loves to listen all kind of tracks but Sufi and Pop music are the ones she likes most.

This is the final place where we all have to go and all the differences will disappear. All in a same row, no castes, no creeds, no religion, all under the same

Man made of clay

Man, made of dust, believes himself to be God in the world. He has forgotten that one day he would come to his Lord. Each servant wants to be king. Everybody wants to be at the top. Do goodness to show people. But the heart keeps the wine. Everybody wants to be worshipped by other people. Forget their God. A man made of clay, one day he will be found beneath the earth.

Come on, let's promise we'll write good stories about ourselves so future generations feel proud of their ancestors. Praised are the ones who are praised by others, and the one who praises himself later in life feels guilty about himself, and the world also never remembers them in good words.

Here are a couple of words I would like to share:

If you want to live: live in others' golden books, keep your name alive even when you leave the world. May your light enlighten the world.”

Man Out of Soil

Man, made of dust,

Has come to understand himself,

As God in the world.

He forgot that one day he would return to his Lord.

Every servant here wants to rule.

Everyone wants to be above others.

Do goodness, to show off other people.

But the hearts are not clean.

Not pure to be loved,

Everyone wants himself to be worshiped.

Accept himself and Forget God.

A man, made of clay,

One day you will be found back in the soil.

What a beautiful and thought-provoking poem, Misbah.

Do goodness, to show off other people.

But the hearts are not clean.

And these lines are the gist of the adopted human nature. We speak well in front of others, but our hearts are rusty. Ah... I am sorry to say, but we all are part of this.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on May 02, 2021:

Thanks a lot for your kind remarks, Brenda. Yes, the poem carries the message we all have to return back to our Lord one day, and the man's body is made of dust and the dust will one day return back into the soil so why man is so much proud. Thanks for watching the video. The video is in the Punjabi language. Sad that you weren't able to change the captions but am glad you liked the music.

Note: You are mistaken. Rosina Khan is not back yet. The comment you saw she made is 3 months ago. I wrote this poem 3 months back. Just shared it back on feed after an update

Blessings and regards

Thank you so much for your Beautiful comments, Peggy. Highly appreciated.

Blessings and Peace

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on May 02, 2021:


They say dust to dust...so our bodies return to the soil when our souls go to heaven unless we are not worthy.

Then we too shall remain beneath the soil.

I couldn't change the captions but the music sounded nice.

Have a great day.

Great to see Rosina is back!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 02, 2021:

Our bodies will indeed return to the earth, but our souls are eternal. Where we will spend eternity depends upon how we lead our lives in our mortal bodies. Blessings to you and for this message.

Thanks a lot for your beautiful words, Vidya

I am glad to know you enjoyed it. Much appreciated


VIDYA D SAGAR on May 02, 2021:

There's so much depth and meaning in this poem Misbah. In our desire to achieve, we forget we are guests here and will have to leave everything behind and say goodbye one day.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on May 02, 2021:

Man is made up of clay then why such pride?

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on January 22, 2021:

Thanks a lot Manatita,

I am really very glad to see your comment here.

Thanks for your invitation but I can’t promise it as I don’t think I would be able to join as am in my aunt’s place now a days.

Sorry for this. Hope you understand

Thanks and kind regards

Live long stay blessed

Beautiful! The video is alive, energetic and full of Light! Seeing you moving in this direction, makes me so proud of you! Of course, It is Allah that I'll point you to. Nimita matram Bhava, savvyasachin. (I am a mere instrument of Allah!)

Saying that man is mere clay, in context, serves its purpose well. Of course, we are souls though, and yes, we are immortal. Back to your poem. You have expressed your words well and the insight herein are wisdom-filled and sublime.

The words in the video reminds me of God-intoxicated souls of which the weaver Kabir and sometimes Guru Nanak, used that style very much to assist us on our journey. Alas! Not many of their videos are in English, but there's an abundance of my favourite Rumi and an increasing number of Hafiz. Jazak Allahu Khairan

Note: - Sukhran, Misbah from Planet Earth. Would be nice to meet you when things settle. If you would like to sit in a Puja tomorrow, then let me know. It is from 11-13:00 UK time and I will be reading spiritual Sonnets. There's music as well. At 6 - 8p.m I will do our own Centre's Sadhana and at 9.p.m I will do Gestalt poetry Open Mic in which you are free to do your own poetry.

All in the comfort of Zoom in your own home. on Sunday, at 3.p.m, I will join Shruthi for more poetry and again you are free to come. Remember so much can be achieved via Zoom these days!

Misbah Sheikh (author) from The World of Rebels. on January 22, 2021:

Thank you so much Rosina.

I am very glad that you liked it.

I chose a different style this time than my usual style. So was just wondering if someone will really appreciate me for this.

I am glad you made my day

God bless you sis
