I wonder...

  1. 1. I wonder <br />By Unknown<br />
  2. 2. Xenia Yasmin<br />If the Prophet Muhammad (saw)visited you,<br />Just for a day or two;<br />If he came unexpectedly<br />I wonder what you'd do.<br />
  3. 3. Xenia Yasmin<br />Oh! I know you'd give your nicest room<br />To such an honoured guest;<br />And all the food you'd serve to him<br />Would be the very best;<br />
  4. 4. Xenia Yasmin<br />And you would keep assuring him,<br />You're glad to have him there;<br />Your hospitality would be beyond belief<br />And service beyond compare.<br /> <br />
  5. 5. Xenia Yasmin<br />But... when you saw him coming,<br />Would you meet him at the door<br />With arms outstretched in welcome<br />To your honoured visitor?<br />
  6. 6. Or... would you have to change your<br />Clothes before you let him in?<br />Or hide some magazines and put<br />The Quran where they had been?<br />Or... would you have to change your<br />Clothes before you let him in?<br />Or hide some magazines and put<br />The Quran where they had been?<br />
  7. 7. Xenia Yasmin<br />Would you still watch movies<br />On your trusty TV set?<br />Or would you rush to switch it off<br />Before he gets upset?<br />
  8. 8. Would you turn off the radio<br />And hope he hadn't heard?<br />And wish you hadn't uttered<br />That last loud nasty word?<br /> <br />Would you hide you worldly music<br />And instead take Islamic books out?<br />Could you let him walk right in,<br />Or would you rush about?<br />
  9. 9. And, I wonder... if the Prophet spent<br />A day or two with you,<br />Would you go right on doing the things<br />That you always do?<br /> <br />
  10. 10. Would you go right on saying the things<br />You always used to say?<br />Would life for you continue<br />As it does from day to day?<br /> <br />Would your family conversation<br />Keep its usual pace?<br />Or would you find it hard each meal<br />To say a table grace?<br />Would you go right on saying the things<br />You always used to say?<br />Would life for you continue<br />As it does from day to day?<br /> <br />Would your family conversation<br />Keep its usual pace?<br />Or would you find it hard each meal<br />To say a table grace?<br />
  11. 11. Would you keep up each and every<br />Prayer, forcing back a frown?<br />And would you always jump up early<br />For every prayer at dawn?<br /> <br />Would you sing the songs you always do<br />And read the books you read?<br />And let him know things on which<br />Your mind and spirit feed?<br />
  12. 12. Would you take the Prophet(saw) with you<br />Everywhere you normally go?<br />Or would you , maybe, change your plan<br />Just for a day or so?<br /> <br />Would you be glad to have him meet<br />Your very closest friends?<br />Or would you hope they'd stay away<br />Until his visit ends?<br />
  13. 13. Would you be glad to have him stay<br />Forever on and on?<br />Or would you sigh with great relief<br />When he at last was gone?<br />
  14. 14. It might be interesting to know<br />The things you would do<br />If the Prophet Muhammad (saw), in person,<br />Came to spend some time with you.<br />
