Just for a day or two,
if he came unexpectedly,
I wonder what you would do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room,
to such an honored guest,
and all the food you’d serve him,
would be the very best
And you would keep assuring him,
you’re glad to have him there,
that serving him in your home,
is joy beyond compare.
But…. when you saw him coming,
would you meet him at the door,
with 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,
on your TV set?
Or would you switch it off,
before he gets upset?
Would you turn off the radio,
and hope he hadn’t heard?
And you wish you hadn’t uttered
the last loud hasty word?
Would you hide your worldly music,
and instead take Hadeeth books out?
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 right on doing
you always do?
Would you go right on saying
you always say?
Would life for you continue,
as it does from day to day?
Would your family conversations,
keep up its usual 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 prayer at dawn?
Would you sing the songs you always sing,
and read the books you always 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 interesting to know,
the things that you would do,
If Prophet Muhammad (PBUH),
in person, came,
to spend some time with you !!!
