Durre Sameen-A book of Poetry

Durr-e Sameen, literally meaning Precious Pearl, is a compilation of all the Urdu poems and verses of Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, India (1835-1908). The actual poetry was composed over a period of approximately twenty-eight years, from 1880 to 1908, and was included in the more than eighty books of prose that he wrote on various religious subjects.

These poems are on a variety of topics. However the common theme is love of Allah and the defense of Islam which is reflected in his every book.

The poems of Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad never bore any titles when they first appeared as part of his original books. However, the editors included appropriate titles when these poems were published as separate collections as Durr-e Sameen. The Urdu titles of the poems have been retained in the English translation. Also included for each poem is the date of publication and the name of the book in which it first appeared.

The English translation of Durre Sameen is available on line for readers:
