“And which of the favours of your Lord can you deny?”
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ
An army on Mecca in the year of the elephant ready for destruction
Abraha aghast by the glorious Ka’bah – it diminished his holy construction.
Abraha, army and elephants split asunder
Birds dropped their WMD to retaliate Abraha’s failed plunder.
The year of the elephant marked the blessings for humanity
as Muhammad ﷺ birth came to address all insanity.
Trusted and loved Muhammad ﷺ was Mecca’s man
in Khadija’s (ra) employ he became tradesmen’s biggest fan.
Honesty and truthfulness his trademark
left all competitors in the dark.
Between his shoulders was the Prophets’ seal concealed
at forty it was all revealed.
Once beloved, trusted, adored as he bore no flaw
upon Prophethood did many a Meccan kick his Prophetic door.
Muhammad ﷺ the rock of steadfastness kept his divine mission
all because holy Quranic revelation gave him vision.
Few met with Muhammadﷺ at Al-Arqam’s like sages of the age
to avoid the Meccan rage.
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ revelation came with hope
persecutions, torture, murder & boycott was no moat
or too wide for believers
their faith touching east and west, disbelievers were their own cleavers.
Heaved at their own chests of misery
they found Muhammad ﷺ and his sages never on the periphery.
Always a revelation at hand
that was grand.
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ split the moon
and all did not swoon.
The miracle by Allah’s lead
gave Muhammad ﷺ the best creed.
Of all, Four were the best, like honoured steeds
blessed Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali excellent in deeds.
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ mercy to all mankind
wanted no one left behind.
In the still of night
heaven bound was Muhammad’s ﷺ sight.
Tears for you and I to find the light
today Muhammad ﷺ prayers still hold its might.
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ Badr, Uhud, Hamza and the Battle of the Trench
filled the cup of martyrdom to quench.
Hypocrisy was the stench
Steadfastness gripped it like a wrench
and hypocrisy discarded like a wench fell in the trench.
Access denied by Hudaibiyah , companions listened and obeyed
then came Conquest of Mecca on what Hudaibiyah made.
Community and Islamic State evolved
All companions sincerely involved.
Hajj came a calling for Muhammadﷺ
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ responded.
The last message he gave, became the declaration of human rights
for 100 000 to save humans from all hellish rites.
Those present took the last message to those absent
today the message is still present.
Allah, the Majestic, the High the Great
called Muhammad ﷺ to His divine State
and Muhammad ﷺ drank from the cup of fate
in blessed Masjid Nabawi, Abu Bakr & Umar with Muhammad ﷺ
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ the sun never rose on someone more fine
or set with so much pine on your demise when it was time.
Oh! Muhammad ﷺ
best favour to the world is you and none can deny.
“And which of the favours of your Lord can you deny.”
