I wonder

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 honoured 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 teh Quran where they had been?

Would you still watch R-rates 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 world?

Would you hide you music
And instead take hadith books out?
Could you let him walk right in,
Or woul you rush about it?

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 prayer at down?

Would you sing the songs you always sing
And reas 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 two?

Would you be glad to have him meet
Your very closet friends?
Or, would you hope they'd stay away
Until this 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 ime with you.
