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 & 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 without 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 & 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 terribly upset.
Would you turn off the radio, and hope that he had not heard & wish that you did not
sing that song word by word?
Would you hide your worldly things,
and instead 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 & 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 & would you always jump up early, to say your Fajr at dawn?
Would you sing the songs you always sing,
and read the books you read & 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 !
