This is my curiosity to know about any poem which regards to Prophet Muhammad (PBH).
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalamuyalykum. This is my curiosity to know about any poem which regards to Prophet Muhammad (PBH). Likewise, my friend sends me these lines of poem which praise Prophet (PBH). My question is that whether it is right way to describe him thru poem/ poetry. Awaiting your answer soon.
If the Prophet Muhammad visited you
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 the very best;
And you would keep assuring him,
you`re glad to have him there;
Is beyond compare.
But... when you saw him coming,
would you meet him at the door
with arms outstretched in welcome
to your visitor?
Or... 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 movies
on your TV set?
Or would you rush to switch 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 nasty word?
Would you hide you worldly 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 its usual pace
And would you find it hard each meal
to say a table grace?
Would you keep up each and every
prayer, without putting a frown?
And would you always jump up early
for prayer at dawn?
Would you sing the songs you always do
and read the books you read?
And let him know 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 plan
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
for ever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief
when he at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know
the things you would do
if the Prophet Muhammad, in person,
came to spend some time with you.

Naat poetry on pm
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
After the Praise that is Truly and Justly due to the Lord Most Supreme Who Created, if there is any is creation in the annuls of mankind who truly deserves praise, it would be the noble self of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws).and the absolute best praise or supplication a believer can and should constantly strive to make is to recite the durood upon their beloved Prophet (saws).
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4807 Narrated by Aisha
When the subject of poetry was mentioned to Allah's Messenger (saws), he said, "It is speech, and what is good in it is good and what is bad is bad."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4795 Narrated by Ka'b ibn Malik
Ka'b asked the Prophet (saws): "O Messenger of Allah (saws), what is your opinion about poetry?" and he (saws) replied "The believer strives with his sword and his tongue."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.166 Narrated by Ubai bin Kab
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Some poetry (do) contain wisdom."
There is absolutely no harm if one who sincerely believes and loves Allah and His Messenger (saws) wishes to express his praise of the Noble Prophet (saws) in prose or in poetry, but one must be extremely careful of the two extremes:
- Neither should one praise the Prophet (saws) in such terms that one raises the rank of the Noblest slave-servant and Prophet of the Lord to the Rank of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme; for that then would be manifest shirk.nor
- should one recite or read such poetry or prose which strives to reduce or compromise the rank, status, and honor of the Noble Prophet (saws) in any way whatsoever.
If one writes or reads prose or poetry which does not violate the rank, status, reverence and honor that is deserving of the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws), there is absolutely no harm.
In our humble opinion, and it is only our opinion. the above quoted poetry is indeed well written, thought provoking, truly inspires one towards the good, makes one humiliatingly aware of ones current state of life and affairs, and does not violate the rank, status, and honor of the Messenger of Allah (saws) in the least. There is absolutely no harm in writing and reading such good poetry or prose.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
