If prophet Muhammad (SAW) Visited You

i found this online
hope you like it as much as i did


If Prophet Muhammad (SAW)Visited You…
Just for a day or two,
If he comes unexpectedly,
I wonder what you’d do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room
To such an honored guest,
And all the food you’d serve to him,
Would be the very best,
And you’d keep assuring him,
You’re glad to have him there,
That serving him in your home,
Is joy beyond compare.
But … when you see 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 Qur’an where they had been?
Would you still watch the same movies
On your T.V. set?
Or would you rush to switch it off
Before he gets upset?
Would you turn off the radio,
And hope he hadn’t heard?
And wish you hadn’t uttered that last loud nasty word?
Would you hide your worldly music,
And instead take Hadith books out?
Could you let him walk right in,
Or would you have to rush about?
And, I wonder …
if the Prophet spends
A day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things
You always do?
Would you go right on saying the things
You always say?
Would life for you continue,
As it does from day to day?
Would your family squabble
Keep up their 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 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, in person,
came to spend some time with you

I would take him to every corner of Kuwait.
That he may see Islam and the Muslim fate.
Let him see the people and their hate.


To hell we go there is no debate.

:( wayd waqta dear.. hmm i need to do some real thinking.. ambeeh.. madri.. est'3far allah!! allah ysam7na kelna.. so busy with life.. naseen eldeen a lil :(
hmmm thanks 7bebty for sharin this :**

April 28, 2007 at 4:06 AM  

hhhmmm interesting idea. I would honestly not change anything. I would want to sit down and listen to everything he has to say and digest it. It would be amazing to listen to such a man!!a prophet! The last prophet!

very nice

April 28, 2007 at 4:50 AM  

I'd act as normal as i act every single day.

Eat the things i eat.
Say the stuff i say.
Sing the songs i sing.
And take him to places i go.

And let Him tell me what's wrong and what's right and fill me up with some wisdom of his.

April 28, 2007 at 9:26 AM  

Muhammad (pbuh) is human like us, his visit is welcomed .. but his god is our god also.

the one who is cabaple and deserve our worship is Only Allah .. where is that idea from long time ago !?

should we expect a visit from the prophet to change our misrable life !?

we should do that mentioned story every day .. coz Allah is the one who rewards and punishes .. not Mohammad (pbuh).

hope that add something :)

April 28, 2007 at 9:27 AM  

Well you already know God Himself knows when you do or say something inappropriate. I think that if you don't already feel guilty about anything bad that you do then the Prophet (PBUH) being there will make little difference.

What would be amazing though is being able to ask questions and get guidance on religious questions we have. There are so many things to ask! Plus I would wanna thank him in person.

April 28, 2007 at 10:18 AM  

I wish that day would happen. I'd highly doubt that he'll spend time with me as he'd be busy seeing how miserable and misguided our life has become

*sighs*

April 28, 2007 at 10:23 AM  

NO!
WAI3!
LAISH!

COMMENT MODERATION AND VERIFICATION?!

just keep the moderation and ignore the verification one =/ mali 5ilg i hate those :r

ne ways back to the post

yea i loved it, id actually take him thru and average day in my life just to see where i stand =P then id ask him for pointers on how to improve it :P

April 28, 2007 at 10:35 AM  

I really dont know what I wud do to be honest. I mean I guess I wud try to be better and be more religious, but in the end, we live everyday and God is watching us and we still do and say all the horrible things we shouldnt.
I wud definately have a lot of questions for him and it wud be the highest honor to have him as a guest...... if he wud stay...but who knows.
And I definately agree that GOd is the Almighty and the One who will take us to heaven or hell, but it doesnt hurt to have someone on your side asking good things for u...

April 28, 2007 at 1:32 PM  

lol ya3ni if he comes to bayan madri shbyesawi feena..

ok I don't think I'll have time for music or tv when or even going out when he's here I have like a gazillion question regarding women rights and questionable stuff I'd like to ask, if he asks me anything I wouldn't lie cause I will need to know why is it not right to do this and why is it right not to do that, I think we kinda need him to visit just to clear things out, we could use a little help with what's happening today in our world.

April 28, 2007 at 3:07 PM  

What a great post/poem...I'd beg him to take me with him, and ofcourse I wouldn't want to pretend coz I'd want him to see the real me too...

April 28, 2007 at 6:30 PM  

antisocial
i see you are not very optimistic about the state of our country and its people

reem
i know sa7
7ada it made me think

Marzouq
tell me about it!
just the thought mesmerizes me

Fayoora
i think thats brave!
so not one tiny thing?

kuw_son
it does
and ofcourse ur right
i wish i was a human like mohamad (saw) but the idea is not about going to heaven or hell, i guess its about impressing such a man
and if you do want to impress him, what would you change?
Now whatever you come uo with, would you change it even if hes not comming?
just makes me wonder

1001nights
true
but like i said to kila metakher, you know how you get all dressed up when someone important is comming over, you put on a smile, be on ur best behaviour... that sort of thing
question is why arent we on our best behaviour every minit of every day

hamza
not have tme to spend with u?
man ide follow him like a puppy!
ii invent the time!

do0da
shelt elverification 3ashanik

my question is this
do u really need him to point out what you need to improve?

cant u point that out urself?

nonowa
totally agree with u

just wondering
what sort of questions do u have in mind for him?

sponty
loooooooool
la la moo shay!
i miss bayan :(

we definitly could use all the help we can get

p.s
i think if you look in the right places u would find all the answers you need
but its hard work :)

commentor
ide beg n plead too!

April 29, 2007 at 1:42 AM  

so do I

April 29, 2007 at 2:56 AM  

o well yea bes leme put this way i wana see how much im able to get away with :P like if we're talkin report cards id be the one aiming for a C :p

April 29, 2007 at 3:40 AM  

oo and thanks for taking the verification off =D

April 29, 2007 at 3:41 AM  

ana ma agol ella " yaAllah 7osn el5atma "

I think my quistion would be: Why can`t you stay for longer than one day?

I guess that would change alot..

April 29, 2007 at 4:03 AM  

Honestly i didn't like the idea at all... Cause esma el sharef a7es ma yen7a6 eb fekra or a game like that! Madry a7es no point from it and no need to mention it.. But i guess the one who made it.. Want to tell us one thing:

Yak el mot ya tark el 9alat :P

April 29, 2007 at 5:59 AM  

I will be myself!

Why would I change and do all those stuff!! I mean what’s wrong with it if Mohammed sew me reading a magazine or watching a movie?? I do read qur’aan too but I do it at night, so why would I pretend I do read it only on front of him!!!!!!

I would never cheat him. And I never cheat those who I love and respect, I would rather hug him the whole two days :)

April 29, 2007 at 8:59 AM  

Thanks for the great post Eshda3wa. :)

Its a good reality check! But i would probably do most of the same things, but probably skip watching Rotana and Mazika..lol!
Cause i mean if u had a clos religious relative staying over for a week and going out with you, then you would tend to focus more on making them feel comfortable instead of taking them to sheesha places/ clubs, etc..

April 29, 2007 at 12:35 PM  

I honestly don't think that I would change anything..

April 29, 2007 at 12:44 PM  

That is a great poem and it really made me think. Be9ara7a this shows that we have lots of things that are wrong. I know that time has changed and many centuries passed but a sin is still a sin. We know that listening to songs is wrong but we continue on listening and buying all those new albums wallahi this poem made me feel guilty.

I would really be happy to have him sit with me, I want to listen to him and hear him talk for it would be such a joy for me to have him with me (wa7da '3a9ab teb'3a tsawy rhyme :P) (I've got a modern poetry exam tomorrow 3ashan ketha my head is full with rhyme)

April 29, 2007 at 1:08 PM  

Wow. Thanks for sharing that, it's beautiful. Makes me pause and think of my life. I would definetly be HONOURED if the Prophet, 3alaih il9alat wilsalam, wud visit me. I'd act the way I act normally and see wat He has to say about everything I do. His comments, advice, wisdom etc will be MORE than welcomed! Bl3aks, I'd insist on knowing. I have soo many questions. Soo many thoughts I wanna share with Him. I want to listen to EVERYTHING He has to say. I want Him to tell me wat am doing right and wat am doing wrong in my life and help me fix them. I want Him to help me live a life that would lead me to Heaven.

April 29, 2007 at 2:12 PM  

I think I wud ask Him-
What is heaven like?
What is hell like?
What was life like before?
How does it feel to be so close to God and to be His Messenger?
What can I do in my life that will lead me to heaven?
How can I help to lead my children on a more righteous path than myself?
What will the Judgement Day be like?
What really happens when death arrives at your door?
Wow, Eshda3wa there are so many more things I wud want to ask -it's unreal!!
What wud u ask?

April 29, 2007 at 3:39 PM  

الكلام حلو واثر فينى رغم انه ابعد من الخيال يعنى الفكرة بحذ ذاتهامرعبة النبى يزورني ما اظن اني استاهل بس الكلام خلاني اعيد التفكير بوايد امور بحياتي اليومية وشكرا على هذا الكلام المؤثر رغم ان خيال

April 29, 2007 at 6:15 PM

April 29, 2007 at 6:32 PM  

Much respect - Great piece.

April 29, 2007 at 6:50 PM  

what a great wake-up call eshda3wa....I personally needed it :)

I would do all what u said in the list....hide my CDs and do all whats necessary to look like a good muslim....why??

mo nefaq walah...bas I wanna at least make him see that his message did get to us....bas e7na eli ma nestahel such a message....

ow ba3deen allah y7eb alsetter...so allah sub7anna ow ta3ala setar 3alina fi shaghlaat wayeed...ow y7eb ena al2ensan yaster 3ala nafsah...fi sabeel ena y7es al2ensan ow ytoob le rabah..

and I would very speacial and privilaged if the holy prophet visited me...ya3ni fini shwayat khair if he did =D

ya reeeeeeeeeeeet...sij ya reeeeeeeeeeet....afreshlah y3ouni

April 29, 2007 at 8:20 PM  

Wow thats such a touching post!

inshala ya rab alla eegadirny and i'll be able to honour such a guest.

all i want from his visit is for him to enlighten me and lead me to the right path without changing anything in my life, cos it would be obvious if I did, why would I pretend infront of him whilst God almighty knows exactly what i'm up to.

loved it!

April 29, 2007 at 10:20 PM  

just dropped to say I missed you ! :*


studying is a ***** ;(


well as for a post i would have many questions to ask him. And i'm sure he would disapprove of all those extremist fundimantalist people in Kuwait.


With love always,

April 29, 2007 at 11:34 PM

nonowa
to tell u the truth i dont know
i think i would just wait and see what he will say, and absorb it like a sponge
hang on to every word
i want him to tell me whats real, to bring me back to the essence of islam, not what man and politics made it out to be
wow, just the thought of it makes me breathless!

cady
it does make you think

and i think we all should be ashamed to some degree!

April 30, 2007 at 2:59 AM  

Mmm. What a cool concept. I don't think I would've 'changed' my behaviour. I would be myself - but ensure he had all his needs were attended to. Maybe make him steak and potato mash for dinner. Otherwise, I'd just sit and ask many questions about how applicable Islam is to my life personally.

April 30, 2007 at 3:20 AM  

heh, i wanna laugh but it isn't funny.. It's not impressive. Quite the opposite actually. I think I'm kind of a lost case.

April 30, 2007 at 4:52 AM  

It’s so sad how we’ve became after the strong religion of Islam and Arab countries. I can’t imagine the sham that I’ll feel about my self and behavior.
After reading your post I really thought twice on commenting but at the end of the day things will go back to normal and nothing will change…

Thanks for the post

April 30, 2007 at 2:25 PM  

I'd let him walk in, and see with his own eyes how things have totally changed since his time.

But when he leaves, I know he'd completely change me. Because I'd sit him down, and I'd squeeze every drop of information out of him, and let it absorb in me. :)

I enjoyed it too. :)
