If Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) visited you, just for a day or two
If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what you would do!
Oh I know, you would give him your nicest room, to such an honoured guest
And all the food you would serve to him would be the very best
And you would keep assuring him, you are 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 heavenly visitor?
Or … would you have to change your clothes before you let him in?
Or hide the magazines and put the Quraan where they had been?
Would you still watch movies on your TV sets
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 the last loud hasty word?
Would you hide your worldly music, and instead take a Hadith book out
Could you let him walk right in, or would you rush about?
It might be interesting to know the things you would do
If Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) in person came to spend some time with you
