Muhammad (saws)

 

What a year was 570 AD

A person was born, a prophet to be

Muhammad (saws) 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 all of mankind

Rabbi al Awwal the 12th, that was the day

He came to this world to show us the way

He was born in Mecca, the holiest place

A life full of challenges he was to face

Abdullah (ra) his father, had by then passed away

Leaving Amina (ra) 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 (ra) his grand-dad then made him his own

When our prophet was nine, his grandfather died

Abu Talib, his uncle, became his new guide

In his 20's,a merchant Muhammad (saws) became by trade

Al-Amin, (the trustworthy) became his grade

Hazrat 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, they were at that time

Our prophet realized 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 Gibrail (as) who asked him to read

Our prophet couldn't and didn't take heed

The angel embraced him and there asked him later

Read, Read in the name of the Creator

Who created man from a drop of blood

Our prophet couldn't read but at that time he could

Our prophet rushed to the path straight ahead

He heard a voice from the heavens which said

Muhammad (saws) truly you are the messenger of God

Muhammad (saws) 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 Hijrat took place

He then entered Medina, all by Allah's grace

He was greeted by the Ansaris who gave their salaam

To him and his companions, the Sahaba ikram

Then came the battles, which were fought face to face

Then the conquest of Mecca, Muhammad (saws)'s birthplace

An Nasr was revealed, it's message was clear

Muhammad (saws) knew that his time was near

Everyone gathered to hear his last speech

little did they know how far Allah's message would reach

Muhammad (saws) 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'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
