“Say: ‘If the ocean were ink (wherewith to write out) the words of my Lord, sooner would the ocean be exhausted than would the words of my Lord, even if we added another ocean like it, for its aid.’" [18:109]

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.

I wonder if the poet of the following small poem read the Qu'ran?

If all the world were paper,
And all the sea were ink,
If all the trees
Were bread and cheese,
What should we have to drink?

Keep researching and you will find this:_

The Jewish poem, Hadamut, in the Aramaic language, has ninety couplets. The poem itself is in the form of an acrostic. It was composed, in the year 1096, by Rabbi Meir ben Yitzhak, son of Isaac Nehorai, who was a cantor in the city of Worms, Germany.

       The Hadamut poem also speaks of a certain miracle. There are three opinions as to the contents of this miracle.

       The first opinion is that the miracle was the giving of the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. Incidentally, it is for this reason that the poem is still read on the first day of the Feast of Shavuot before the reading of the Ten Commandments.

       The second opinion simply states that we really cannot know with certainty, from the references, what the actual miracle was.

       The third opinion believes that the miracle took place in the city of Worms, home of the rabbi-poet. It is thought that there was a medieval, German priest who once spoke evil of the Jewish community.


       Throughout the poem, the theme of God’s eternal love and concern for His people is evident. One section of this poem, from which the present third stanza of The Love of God was evidently adapted, reads as follows:

Were the sky of parchment made,
A quill each reed, each twig and blade,

Could we with ink the oceans fill,

Were every man a scribe of skill,

The marvelous story, Of God’s great glory
Would still remain untold; For He, most high

The earth and sky Created alone of old.


Then I found this article..written by a muslim

http://www.lohar.com/The%20Word%20of%20God%20and%20Meir%20Ben%20Isaac%20Nehorai2.pdf

And finally:-

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Poetry-678/Poetry-9.htm

Didn't quite expect these findings, and more can be found if interested.
