Poems > If the Prophet Muhammad visited you
If the Prophet Muhammad visited
just for a day or two;
If he came unexpectedly
I wonder what
Oh! I know you'd give your nicest room
to such an honored
And all the food you'd serve to him
would be the very best;
And you would keep assuring him,
you're glad to have him there;
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 X-rated movies
on your TV set?
you rush to switch off
before he gets upset?
Would you turn off the
and hope he hadn't heard?
and wish you hadn't uttered
last loud nasty word?
Would you hide you worldly music
take Hadith books out?
Could you let him walk right in,
Or would you
And, I wonder... if the Prophet spent
a day or two with
Would you go right on doing the things
you always do?
go right on saying the things
you always say?
Would life for you
as it does from day to day?
Would your family conversation
keep its usual pace
And would you find it hard each meal
to say a
Would you keep up each and every
putting a frown?
And would you always jump up early
for prayer at dawn?
Would you sing the songs you always do
and read the books you read?
And let him know 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 plan
just for a day or so?
Would you be glad to have him meet
your very closest friends?
would you hope they'd stay away
until his visit ends?
Would you be
glad to have him stay
for ever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great
when he at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know
the things you would do
if the Prophet Muhammad, in person,
spend some time with you.
