ABSTRACT

 

Sarojini Naidu was not only well versed in Vedic Concepts of Indian Mythology but also in Islamic Beliefs. She was a great lover of Almighty God (Allah in Arabic) and Ahle Bait (The family of Prophet Mohammad).  She was born on 13th February, 1879 in Hyderabad and expired on 2nd March, 1949 in Lucknow. She was popularly known as ‘Bharat Kokila’ or ‘the Nightingale of India’.  Her poetic lines had bird like quality with swiftness and sophistication.   She has written three volumes of poetry, The Golden Threshold (1905), The Bird of Time (1912) and The Broken Wing (1917).  Her poetic volumes occupy an eminent place in the anthologies of Indo-Anglican poetry.  Her poems that portray Muslim life and Islamic culture include i) The Pardah Nashin  ii) A Song from Shiraz   iii) The Imambara iv) The Prayer of Islam v) Wandering Beggars and vi) The Old Woman.  The poem titled ‘The prayer of Islam’ was composed by Sarojini Naidu on Id-Uz-Zoha in the year 1915.  It is taken from her volume ‘The Broken Wing’. This poem depicts us an insight into the well-acquaintance of Sarojini Naidu with Islamic mode of worship. The subsequent poem ‘Imam Bara’ is also taken from Sarojini Naidu’s volume The Broken Wing (1917).   It is of twenty four lines and is divided into two stanzas of twelve lines each.  This paper aims to portray through her poems the devotion and reverence Sarojini Naidu had in Islamic Beliefs and the Ahle Bait (the family of Prophet Mohammad)
