If The Prophet Muhammad visited you,
Just for a day or two.
If he came unexpectedly,
I wonder what you'd do.
Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room,
To such an honored guest,
And all the food you'd serve to him,
Would be your very best,
And you would keep assuring him,
you're glad to have him there,
That serving him in your home,
Is a joy beyond compare.
When you see him coming,
Would you meet him at the door,
With arms outstretched in welcome,
To your visitor?
Would you have to change your clothes
Before you let him in ?
Or hide some magazines
And put the Quran where they had been ?
Would you still watch R-rated movies,
On your TV set ?
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,
That last loud, hasty word ?
Would you hide away your music,
And instead take Hadith books out ?
Could you let him walk right in,
or would you rush about ?
AND, I wonder ...
If the Prophet spent A day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing
The things you always do ?
Would you go right on saying
The things you always say ?
Would life for you continue
As it does from day to day ?
Would your family conversation
Keep up its usual pace ?
And would you find it hard each meal
To say a table grace ?
Would you keep up each every prayer
Without putting on a frown ?
And would you always jump up early
For prayers at dawn ?
Would you sing the songs you always sing
And read the books you read ?
And let him know the things on which
your mind and spirit feed ?
Would you take the prophet with you
Everywhere you plan to go ?
Or, would you, maybe,
change your plans,
Just for a day or so ?
Would you be glad to have him meet
your very closest friends ?
Or, would you hope they'd stay away
Until his visit ends ?
Would you be glad to have him stay
Forever on and on ?
Would you sigh with great relief,
When He at last was gone ?
It might be interesting to know
The things that you would do
If the prophet Muhammad, in person,
came to spend some time with you.
