Ode to Prophet Muhammed

Why do you pray, Oh Prophet!
When God has promised you
Paradise
Shouldn't I be thankful
Is how my Prophet responds

Oh that he would spend
Hours and hours
Waking from bed
Praying and crying to his Lord

Shouldn't I be so thankful?
To have a Prophet
Whose only aim
Was to save my soul
From the torment of the hell fire

A fire so harsh
That its asks for relief
From its own self

Could you imagine that
Being so hot that your skin melts off?
Forgive me for not being discreet

But my prophet was given this warning
As a mercy to you and me

Oh Prophet!
Who cried for his ummah
In fear that we'd go astray

But Prophet we keep your words in our heart
Though sometimes we twist and bind them
Most times your words make us cry

Oh why?
Why did you have to leave us
Your followers!
Where left in shambles
With broken hearts
And empty souls

Trying to hold on to the past
Oh Prophet!
What kind of clothes did you wear?
Oh prophet!
Did you sit on the floor or a chair?
Oh Prophet!
What was your favorite food?

Oh Prophet I have a prophetic love for you
Which doesn't always translate to action
We try to do
Everything you tell us to

Praying the way you prayed
Fasting the way you fast
Crying for a glimpse of hope
In a world of utter darkness

Hoping for the ultimate chance
To follow you in to paradise
For Allah to see us
As one of your own
And forgive us in this life
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Chapter: 41, Verses 34-35, Al-Quran

An absolutely beautiful prayer. I wonder how my life might have been different if I had been raised in Islam?

Thank you Melinda. Are you Muslim? If not, I pray that though you were not Muslim growing up you still practice islam if you truly believe. Many people become Mulim everyday because they are overwhemeled by the truth and beauty of islam and want to change for the better. Thank you so much for reading this post and I hope that it helps us both remember whta greatness is and continuously strive towards it!
