Hazrat Amir Khusrau heard Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya say when he saw some people praying:

Har qaum raast raahay, deen-e wa qibla gaahay

Every sect has a faith, a direction (Qibla) to which they turn

Immediately the disciple replied

Har qaum raast raahay, deen-e wa qibla gaahay,

Mun qibla raast kardam, bar samt kajkulaahay.

Sansaar har ko poojay, kul ko jagat sarahay,

Makkay mein koyi dhoondhay, Kaashi ko koi jaaye,

Guyyian main apnay pi kay payyan padun na kaahay.

Har qaum raast raahay, deen-e wa qibla gaahay…..

Translation-

Every sect has a faith, a direction (Qibla) to which they turn,

I have turned my face towards the crooked cap (of Nizamudin Aulia)

The whole world worships something or the other,

Some look for God in Mecca, while some go to Kashi (Banaras),

So why can’t I, Oh wise people, fall into my beloved’s feet?

Every sect has a faith, a Qibla.

We need this religious tolerance and co-existence
