Muhammad (saws)

What a year was 570 AD

A person was born, a prophet to be

Muhammed (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 the whole of mankind

Rabbi al Awwal, in it was a 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, his father, had by then passed away

Leaving Amina, 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, 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 Muhammed (saws) became by trade

Al-Amin,(the trustworthy) became his grade
 


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, there were at that time

Our prophet realised 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 Jibrail(as) who asked him to read

Our prophet couldn’t and didn’t take heed
 


The angel embraced him and then asked him later

Read, Read in the name of the Creator
 
Who created man from a drop of blood

Our prophet was shocked, but his wife understood
 
 

Our prophet rushed to the path straight ahead

He heard a voice from the heavens which said

Muhammed(saws) truly you are the messenger of God

Muhammed (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 hijrah took place

He entered Medina, by the Almighty’s grace
 


He was greeted by the Ansaris who were not like the others

they treated the muhajirs like their very own brothers

Then came the battles, fought face to face

Then the conquest of Mecca, Muhammed (saws)’s birthplace
 


An Nasr was revealed, it’s message was clear

Muhammed (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
 


Muhammed (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
