Who Is Muhammad(pbuh)?

Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) was born in such a family on Friday, the 17th Rabi’-ul-Awwal, 1st year of ‘Amul-Fil (corresponding to 570 C.E.) to bring the Message of God to the world. In Sunni circles, 12th Rabi’-ul-Awwal is more famous. Thus, the prayer of Ibrahim while constructing the Ka’bah was granted:

Lord! And raise a Messenger from among them who shall recite to them Thine verses, and teach them the Book and the wisdom, and purify them, indeed Thou art the Mighty, the Wise(Qur’an, 2:129).

And the tidings of Christ came true:-

O Children of Israel! Surely, I am the messenger of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me of the Torah and giving the good news of a Messenger who will come after me whose name will be Ahmed. (Qur’an, 61:6)

‘Abdullah, father of the Prophet, died a few month before (or two months after) his birth, and his grandfather ‘Abdul Muttalib took over the care and upbringing of the child. After a few months, according to the age-long custom of the Arabs, the child was entrusted to a bedouin woman Halimah by name, of the tribe of Bani-Sa’d, for his upbringing.

When he was only six years old, he lost his mother as well; so, the doubly-orphaned child was brought up by ‘Abdul-Muttalib with the most tender care. It was the will of God that the Prophet to-be should undergo all the sufferings, pains and privations incidental to human life in order that he might learn to bear them with becoming fortitude and raise his stature in human perfection. Not two years had passed before ‘Abdul-Muttalib also expired.

‘Abdul-Muttalib died at the age of 82, leaving the care and custody of the orphaned Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) to Abu Talib. Abu Talib and his wife, Fatimah Bint Asad, loved Muhammad more than their own children. As the Holy Prophet himself said, Fatima Bint Asad was his “mother” who kept her own children waiting while she fed the Holy Prophet, kept her own children cold while she gave him warm clothes. Abu Talib always kept the child with him day and night.

Abu Talib had succeeded ‘Abdul-Muttalib in Siqayah and Rifadah and was an active participant in the trade caravans. When Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) was 12 years old, Abu Talib bade farewell to his family to go to Syria. Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) clung to him and cried. Abu Talib was so moved that he took the child with him. When the caravan reached Busra in Syria they, as usual, stayed near the monastery of a monk, Buhayra. It is not possible to give here the full account of that visit. Suffice it to say that the monk, seeing some of the signs, which he knew from the old books, was convinced that the orphan child was the last Prophet-to-be. To make sure, he started a conversation with him, and at one point said: “I give you oath of Lat and Uzza to tell me…” The child cried out: “Don’t take the names of Lat and Uzza before me! I hate them!” Buhayra was now convinced. He advised Abu Talib not to proceed to Damascus “because if the Jews found out what I have seen, I am afraid they will try to harm him. For sure, this child is to have a great eminence.”

Be Careful What You Wish For

Someday in the near future an event will happen.
One of which whose like has been seen in the past, but only to a limited extent
The event will go down as “the greatest” in history
An event so profound that man’s direction shall change
Whose effects will determine ones destiny
An event that all prayed for

Lucky will be, the right-handed people
And damned will be the rest
For man shall understand himself, the consequences of his action
For the event that he asked for

However, being righty is an uphill struggle
For a cloud of confusion and deceit must be overcome
A world of struggle and sorrow must be succumb
For after darkness comes light, exactly what we asked for

Alternatively, opposites have inverse effects
A hasty hand may give a tasty end
But little gain only gets you to a dead end
An end it isn’t but only the beginning, indeed one that we asked for

Unfortunate it is, that humanity knowingly yearns for it
But doesn’t pay heed to the manifest signs
Or the clear warnings
Nor does humanity strive for it
But ignorantly they pray for their destruction
For light extinguishes the dark
A little thing we all hoped for

Consequently, many a great people shall fall back
Living only with regret
For visible was what they thought hidden
and hidden was not what they plotted and did
A great prayer that they once asked for

Fortunately, with an effect there has to be a cause
If salvation is its road, then its all what we want
Unless you leave, you shall not face its wrath
So struggle and strive and make your future alive

And be careful what you wish for

The Man…

He’s been gone for a while and he’s not coming back, why do you still remember him?
Listen to the story than you might understand, then you might believe..
 
There once stood a man who took a stand
He was so firm that no human power would divert him from his cause
He was one of those men that the earth did not want to let go off
The people tried to get rid of him but what if the universe had power, what would it do?
 
If the sand could it would wrap around him so that no one could see
If the wind could it would carry him like a gentle breeze into a far away land
If the sun could it would disappear in awe of the man
If the clouds could they would make a shade over him and rain around him so that gardens would blossom
If the waters could they would let him walk over it
If the mountains could they would move him to the peak
If the sky could it would let him float in the sky
If the fire could it would mould statues for eternity to witness his greatness
If the spirits could they would make him disappear into the world of the unknown
If the angels could they would let him ride to the heavens
 
Alas, this is the world we live in where men are given a chance that:
If they had the chance they would destroy anything in their path
They would choose obsceneness over righteousness
They would choose violence over peace
They would choose arrogance over humbleness
They would choose comfort over strive
And worst of all they would choose the world over their soul
 
His eyes had seen anything and everything, that could break any man
He had seen the lies in people’s eyes
He had seen people sell their souls to the devil
He had seen his family in peril
He had seen his friends, brothers, and sons return to their lord in front of his eyes
 
So you ask why go through all the hassle and just cave in?
The man was no ordinary man, he had a vision:
A vision where people would know what Islam truly is
A vision where people would know the difference between tyranny and harmony
A vision where people would understand each other and live in peace
A vision where righteousness would be valued over indecency
A vision where everyone was equal
A vision where one could stand up for their rights without being shot down
A vision where love expanded and evil diminished
The purity of his soul did not allow anything to stop him
He had clarity of vision and knew what his mission was
He moved towards his death, NO, he ran towards it
 
As he went he reminded the people of who he was
A man who lived a simple life
A man who worked to earn his living
A man with loyal companions
A man with pearls of wisdom
A man true to the word of the Almighty
A man who represented Islam in words and actions
 
It is easy to kill a man, but impossible to kill an idea
What the man left was a seed that grew from the blood of his people
The man’s ideas of equality, humbleness, respect, knowledge, flow in our veins
The man may be gone from this world
All it takes is to look inside and realize that the man exists in all of us
The man is there, somewhere, hidden, shackled by the chains of pleasure
The man is there, waiting for a chance to come out
The man is there, looking at you
The man is there, waiting for you
The man is there, asking you
Are you ready to fight with me?
