What is Kalame Mawla?

  • Kalame Mawla is a poem of 327 verses, composed in Hindi, whose content is inspired by sayings, speeches and sermons of Hazrat Imam Ali - our first Imam. The actual composer of the poem is not known.
  • The main message in the poem is ethical, stating the virtues to be cultivated (honesty, brotherhood etc) and the vices to be shunned (jealousy, greed etc).
  • However, it also has a doctrinal aspect (Islamic faith, theological beliefs) and deep esoteric mystical elements with a call to aspire higher spiritual reality through contemplation and acquisition of knowledge.
  • The ethical and esoteric aspects of Kalame Mawla have potential universal appeal beyond the followers of Islam.
