Ayn al-Qozat Hamadani: I will incinerate this creed and religion

Ayn al-Qozat Hamadani: I will incinerate this creed and religion
Photo: Women Unveiled by Marc Garanger; 1960s, Algeria.


​I will incinerate this creed and religion, and burn it.
Then I will put your love in its place.
How long must I hide
this love in my heart?
What the traveler seeks
is not the religion
and not the creed:
Only You.

(Ayn al-Qozat Hamadani)
