Oh my beloved Prophet!

Oh my beloved Prophet!

What do I say about this world today?

The world is no longer as it was

And the Muslims as they should be!

Today, if people follow your way of life

They are an outcast from the modern way.

You stuck to what was halal

And avoided that was haram

You were the righteous one

Today if we do the same

Then we are the extreme ones!

You married many women

Took care of them how you could

You were the best husband

Today if we do the same

Then we are looked down upon

Like those who have committed a sin!

Your family went through months

On dates and water in poverty

And whatever you could provide

You were the best son in law

Today if we do the same

Then we are irresponsible

Who cannot provide!

Your daughter’s request for aid

Was met with a dua to recite

You were the best father

Today if we do the same

Then we are fathers with no heart

Who cannot fulfil their needs!

You lived your life in poverty

Didnt aspire for the riches

You were the best among men

Today if we happen to be poor

And do not aspire for the same

Then we are the worst of men

Who deserve no respect!

Oh my beloved Prophet!

What do I tell about this world?

The world is no longer as it was

And the Muslims as they should be!
