View Full Version : Lovely Poem on the Prophet Muhammad (Peace & blessings be upon him)

Muhammad ﷺ
What a year was 570 AD
A person was born, a prophet to be
Muhammed ﷺ that was his name
People were misguided and that’s when he came.

He would go on to leave all the idols behind
He is an example to the whole of mankind
Rabbi al Awwal, in it was a day
He came to this world to show us the way.

He was born in Makkah, the holiest place
A life full of challenges he was to face
Abdullah, his father, had by then passed away
Leaving Amina, his mother, in her arms he lay.

Haalima Sadia took over his care
Until he was six, our prophet was there
His mother then died, he was left all alone
Abdul Muttalib, his grand-dad then made him his own.

When our Prophet ﷺ was nine, his grandfather died
Abu Talib, his uncle, became his new guide
In his 20′s, a merchant Muhammed ﷺ became by trade
Al-Amin, (the trustworthy) became his grade.

Khadija (RA) aged 40, became his bride
He was 25, with her by his side
To the poor, she gave away all her wealth
A dedicated wife in sickness and health.

360 idols in the Kaaba, there were at that time
Our Prophet ﷺ realised that this was a crime
He would go to Mount Hira, leaving behind his wife
Reflecting and wondering about the meaning of life.

Whilst thinking there in the midst of the night
He heard a loud voice which filled him with fright
It was the angel Jibrail (AS) who asked him to read
Our Prophet ﷺ couldn’t and didn’t take heed.

The angel embraced him and then asked him later
"Read, Read in the name of the Creator
Who created man from a drop of blood"
Our Prophet ﷺ was shocked, but his wife understood.

Our Prophet ﷺ rushed to the path straight ahead
He heard a voice from the heavens which said
Muhammed ﷺ truly you are the Messenger of God
Muhammed ﷺ was scared and thought this quite odd.

"Praise be to God" his wife said instead
"I know you’ve been chosen as God’s messenger" she said
And thus Khadija (RA) became the first woman of islam
And over the next 23 years came the revelation, the Quran.

He preached to all people, every creed, every race
Yet so many hardships he had to face
There were fears for his life, then the hijrah took place
He entered Madina, by the Almighty’s Grace.

He was greeted by the Ansaris who were not like the others
They treated the Muhajirs like their very own brothers
Then came the battles, fought face to face
Then the conquest of Makkah, Muhammed ﷺ’s birthplace.

An Nasr was revealed, it’s message was clear
Muhammed ﷺ knew that his time was near
Everyone gathered to hear his last speech
Little did they know how far Allah’s message would reach.

Muhammed ﷺ gave us the miracle, the Quran
And now a 1/4 of the world follow Islam
He is our role-model, the best of mankind
And has left the Quran and his Sunnah behind.

Read the Quran as much as you can
The words of Allah (swt) for the guidance of man
And follow our Prophet ﷺ’s sunnah, when eating and dressing
And send him salutations and many a blessing.

He came to mankind to show us the way
And Insha-Allah, we’ll meet him, we’ll meet him one day.

I am not sure about the second line above. To not take heed to something, is generally a negative thing, when a person's been told something but hasn't paid attention to it or hasn't listened or has ignored it.

It might read better and more befittingly like this:

It was the angel Jibrail (AS) who asked him to read
Our Prophet ﷺ couldn’t and said, "I can't read".

:jz: for sharing.
