I Wonder...

If Prophet Muhammad (SAW) visited you, just for a day or two
If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what you would do?
Oh I know you would give your nicest room, to such an honored guest
And you would surely serve him, your very very best.

You would be your finest, cause you're glad to have him there
That serving him in you're home, would be a joy beyond compare.
But when you see him coming, would you meet him at the door
With your arms outstretched in welcome, for your respected visitor?

Or would you run to change your clothes, before you let him in
And hide some magazines to put the Quran, where they had been?
Would you still watch those movies, on your TV set
Or would you switch it off, before he gets upset.

Would you turn off the radio, and hope that he had not heard
And wish that you did not sing, that song word by word?
Would you hide your worldly things, and take the Hadith books out
Could you let him walk right in, or would you rush about?

And I wonder...if the Prophet (SAW) spent, a day or two with you
Would you go on doing the things, that you always do?
Would you go right on and say the things, that you always say?
Would life for you continue, as it does from day to day?

Would your family conversations, keep up their usual pace
And would you find it hard at each meal, to say a table grace?
Would you keep up each and every prayer,without putting on a frown
And would you jump up early, to say your Fajr at dawn?

Would you sing the songs you always sing, and read the books you read
And let him know the things on which, your mind and spirit feed?
Would you take the Prophet (SAW) with you, everywhere you plan to go
Or would you maybe change your plans, just for a day or so?

Would you be glad to have him meet, your very closest friends
Or, would you hope they stay away, until his visit ends?
Would you be glad to have him stay, forever on and on
Or would you sigh with great relief, when at last he has gone.

It might be interesting to know,
the things that you would really do
If Prophet Muhammad (SAW) came,
To spend some time with you.

Interesting poem, don't you think? Thought I'd share it here, with you guys. It got me thinking...if we're not ready to meet the Prophet (SAW) - a mortal human being, what are the chances that we're ready to meet Allah, our Creator - The Most Supreme in Honor? AllahuAkbar...I truly pray that He will give us enough time in this world to prepare ourselves to meet Him..

*my eyes are teary*

last night, i read someone (a Muslim) vilifying Allah /Shariah (concerning hudud).May Allah guide this person to the right path.

i was so upset with myself cos i didnt know how to counter for fear i would give a wrong argument and that person would make fun of me,all i could do was istighfar.

As u said,we're nothing compared to Rasulullah SAW,what more Allah.

I pray all of us will strive to be a better Muslim

Toots said...

Eyeda, of course you could share it...All good things come from Allah and surely good things gets better when shared, insyaAllah :)

I'm trying to equip myself with knowledge on Islamic Law too, N! Now, more than ever it is important for us to understand the knowledge of Islam and other religions/fields before we start arguing or drawing conclusions. Surely, Allah loves those who acquire knowledge and seek the truth :)
