38: Poetry and A Prayer To Keep Safe & 'Salaamat' This New Year
Play • 15 min
Pandemic, Politics & Protests. These three words can sum-up what 2020 was like. An anxious heart wants to be assured that nothing from the previous year should follow us as we begin a brand new year. And what better way to start a new journey than prayers and hope for peace and strength?

Join us as we read the poems of Sahir Ludhianvi, Ahmad Faraz, and Ali Sardar Jafri, to make sense of what 'amn' or 'peace' is. These poets tell us not just about friendships, but also, war and hatred, and guide us to keep safe and 'salaamat' from these two ills.

Tune in.
