Poetry for Jashan-e-Riaz (Lord Ra Riaz Day)
On the 25th of November, admirers of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi celebrated Jashan-e-Riaz (Lord Ra Riaz Day), which marks the day the world was first blessed with Lord Ra Riaz’s presence.
In honour of this auspicious occasion, the following poem was written by a member of Messiah Foundation International.
Jashan-e-Riaz: The Day of Riaz
It is the most auspicious day of the year
A day we celebrate and revere
When the Lord revealed His comely face
And made this world a magical place
He came in the guise of the Awaited One
Recognise His image on the Moon and Sun!
He granted us His glorious name
Making all hearts love the same
Ra Riaz – the most powerful name of all
For every human, big or small
The religion of love was introduced
Divine light was in the hearts produced
The Day of Riaz, always remember
Comes on the 25th of November
Jashan-e-Riaz is a time to reflect
It is our heart we must not neglect
Though the decorations are a pretty sight
They’re of no use if your heart is not bright
Light up your heart with the name of the Lord
And make your heart the Lord’s abode
Your heart will then shine brighter than a star
A star the Lord can see from afar
Then every day will be a celebration
As you become a member of the Lord’s nation!
