If the Prophet visited you

Poem: If the Prophet visited you

I wonder........................

If Prophet Muhammad 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 serve him your very best.

You would be the very best,

Cause you're glad to have him there,

That serving him in your 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,

To your visitor?

Or...would you have to change your clothes

before you let him in?

Or hide some magazines and put

The Quran where they had been?

Would you still watch those movies,

Or your T.V. set?

Or would you switch it off,

Before he gets upset.

Would you turn off the radio,

And hope he had not heard?

And wish that you did not utter

your last loud hasty word?

Would you hide your wordly music,

And instead take out Hadith books?

Could you let him walk right in,

Or would you rush about?

And I wonder...if the Prophet spent, a day or two with you,

Would you go on doing the things you always do?

Would you go right on and say the things You always say?

Would life for you continue

As it does from day to day?

Would your family conversations,

Keep up their ususal pace?

And would you find it hard each meal,

To say a table grace?

Would you keep up each and every prayer?

Without putting on a frown?

And would you always jump up early,

For Fajr at dawn?

Would you sing the songs you always sing?

And read the book you read?

And let him know the things on which,

Your mind and spirit feed?

Would you take the Prophet 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 he at last was gone?

It might be intresting to know,

The things that you would do.

If Prophet Muhammad, came,

To spend some time with you.

Bismillsh wassalatu wassalamu ala rasulillah.As per several hadis, who doesn't have any love & respect for Rasule Karim s.a, can't claim that he bears belief in Allah.So the love of Rasule Karim s.a, is the index of belief(iman) in Allah.
A true lover of Rasule Karim s.a, always feel the presence of Rasule Karim s.a beside when in contemplation.So he can not do anything wrong out of love of Rasule Karim s.a.

I hope this would result in a reminder to us towards our obligations in daily life. And till it will remain in mind one would certainly think for a while before doing something that would make him/her ashamed before the prophit (pbuh) and many would change their minds Insha-Allah.
