Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!*

But there is always neither East nor West
Since alone
(He is) the Lord of the east and the west**


Since alone
Allah is the Lord of the east and the west
*Rudyard Kipling (1889)
**Q.S. 73:9
