Without faith people become slaves of temptations and worldly gains. The poet believes that we need faith of Abraham (may peace be upon him). He was thrown in fire but he was saved by his faith. He also believes that the Muslims harmony depends upon the true faith in. Islam. Ethnic and linguistic factors divide them, but religion unites them. They should not look towards faithless Europe for attaining dignity and honour. Ironically, however, Muslims are also unable to lead the world. Their soul is without real feelings. They are disorganized and disillusioned. Thus they cannot provide comfort to others.
