Let the World Know Muhammad

"Children you love, women you respect. Neither men you ignore, nor animals you neglect."

I heard about you when I was little

Your name was repeated, as you gave us mettle

It seemed to me you were someone great

Pity for those who knew you late!


Stories of you color my childhood

With grace and pride I embrace womanhood

My soul you purify, my characters you mould

For Eve you empower, justice you uphold


Love and humility fill your heart

Faith you preach at the very start

The weak you embrace, compassion you gave

The strong you discipline, for tyranny you brave


The best of manners belong to you

None will forget how you treat the Jew

For you to be kind, you don’t need kindness

Through gentleness you cure, men’s blindness



Children you love, women you respect

Neither men you ignore, nor animals you neglect

You manage to soften the hardest of hearts

You defeat misdeeds with your tenderest arts


Enemies of your truth existed from long

And till today to ignorance they belong

Isn’t it surprising, how hateful they are!

But I shall not worry, your beauty they can’t mar!


They write and act, and speak and sing

From summer to winter, and autumn to spring

To smear your name, to stain your esteem

In desperation they crawl, in deception they deem


They mock and laugh, and draw to incite

Hatred, chaos, prejudice and fight

And they claim to uphold, human rights

Ah, hypocrisy can’t tell between black and white!


We shall not, and can never, stoop so low

They ridicule our beloved, as Muhammad they don’t know

In such aggression, grace we will show

For Muhammad taught us, and to him we owe


Let us now sing, and speak and write

The truth on Muhammad shall be clear and bright

We don’t need to kill, or fight and bite

Channel the anger right, and that is might!


Brothers of faith, act with reason

Through violence you do, against the prophet, treason

How did he act, what did he do

To the ignorant and misled, who curse and boo


O Muhammad my beloved, whom I yearn to see!

Bear witness today, that I’ve defended thee

You have taught me kindness and forgiveness, to show

And this, I will let the whole world know.
