Would You Believe?

 

RTÉ_Would_You_Believe

Would you believe if I told you he was more luminescent than the full moon on a starry night

that his face radiated to those in sight

Would you believe me if I told you he was of medium built but appeared as if towering high

that he was perfect in balance

neither short nor like a giant

Would you believe if I told you his hair was black, shiny,  and wavy

neither lanky, straight nor tight, and curly

Would you believe if I told you he was strong in strength and well-built in form

yet his heart was vast that could hold the pain of those out of the norm

Would you believe if I told you about his pure character

that he was Al-Amin the Trustworthy one amongst his companions

even those who were his enemies entrusted him with their possessions

Would you believe if I told you his smile was the most widely known in his community

yet he had experienced every loss imaginable from birth till death

Would you believe if I told you he was the most generous in giving

yet he owned little and had a simple way of living

Would you believe if I told you he was chosen by God to be His Messenger

yet he was an orphan, unlettered, who was searching for meaning

Would you believe if I told you he is the most praised one

Yet his life was devoted to praising The Only One

Would you believe if I told you that he prayed and cared for you

Yet you don’t know him but he chose you

Would you believe if I told you his character was the Quran

He embodied the word of God, steering to right and warning the wrong

Would you believe me if I told you his Mercy encompassed all of creation

Human, Jinn,  animals, plants, insects, mountains, the entire Universe feels his compassion

Would you believe me if I told you every Prophet was told about his coming

that he loved them all and considered them his brothers in belief

Would you believe if I told you he came and liberated the plight of women and gave them honor

while his people were torturing them and killing them at birth

Would you believe if I told you that none of his sons survived

Yet every muslim desires to name their child Muhammad

Would you believe me if I told you that he made everyone feel special

that he would turn his entire body to give you attention

be they a noble king, pauper, or a wandering wayfarer

Would you believe if I told you that he prayed for those who tortured him

all for the sake of His Lord that perhaps their next of kin will become believers

Would you believe if I told you that the angels were instructed to destroy his enemies

Yet he chose forgiveness for them and asked that they be spared

Would you believe me if I told you that light emanated from his mouth permeating from his heart

because his heart carried the Word of God in word and deed

he called to Islam and fulfilled our need

Would you believe if I told you that he cared for the ones who hurt him

that he never carried a grudge nor sought revenge to those who mocked him

Would you believe if I told you that he never instigated war

that he only fought with the Will of Allah in self-defense

Would you believe if I told you that he was fierce in fighting

that his face would turn red in anger only for the sake of His Lord

Would you believe if I told you God and His angels send peace and blessings on Muhammad

That He commanded us to do the same

O Allah send your infinite peace and blessings upon our Master Muhammad salalaaho alayhi  wasalam.

Would you believe if I tell you I see your tears

He has touched your heart and wiped your fears

Would you believe me if I tell you that I know you believe

Take a deep breath and say:

La ilaaha ilalah Muhammadar Rasul Allah, salalaaho alayhi wassalam
