Law Kan Baynana

Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises." He was then asked: "From what do we give charity every day?" The Prophet answered: "The doors of goodness are many...removing harm from the road.." - Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 98

In this television show, a secret camera was hid in the supermarket to capture those who would 'remove harm from the roads'. This sister was later interviewed to have been amongst those who picked up food from the floor which would otherwise been an obstruction to others.

The brother who interviewed asked her if she is fated to meet Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, what would she say to him.

She paused for a second and then teared up.

She replied saying that she would want him to take her far away from this Dunya.

Subhan Allah, what would you say/ask to Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam if he is here with us today?

If I could just ask him one question, it would definitely be whether he considers me to be part of his Ummah.  It would be my greatest desire to be recognized by him to be part of his Ummah, and be of those who have struggled hard implementing Qur’an and Sunnah into their lives. Striving to be upon the Qur’an and Sunnah is a challenge especially in this time and age, but our love for him transcends all barriers and obstacles placed in front of us. I would rather stand out from everyone else and be a ‘stranger’ emulating his characteristics and adhering to his Sunnahs, than assimilating with the rest of the world. Insha Allah!

Not sure if any of you has seen this poem. Insha Allah, we can use this to muhasabah ourselves.

I wonder..
If Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam visited you
Just for a day or two,
If he came unexpectedly,
I wonder what you would do?
Oh I know you would give your nicest room,
To such an honored guest,
And you would serve him your very best.

You would be the very best,
Cause you’re glad to have him there,
That serving him in your home
Would be a joy without compare.

But…when you see him coming,
Would you meet him at the door
With your 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 those movies,
Or your T.V. set?
Or would you switch it off,
Before he gets upset.

Would you turn off the radio,
And hope he had not heard?
And wish that you did not utter
your last loud hasty word?

Would you hide your worldly music,
And instead take out Hadith books?
Could you let him walk right in,
Or would you rush about?

And I wonder…if the Prophet (saw) spent, a day or two with you,
Would you go on doing the things you always do?
Would you go right on and say the things You always say?
Would life for you continue
As it does from day to day?

Would your family conversations,
Keep up their 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 on a frown?
And would you always jump up early,
For Fajr at dawn?

Would you sing the songs you always sing?
And read the book 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 so?

Would you be glad to have him meet,
Your very closest friends?
Or, would you hope they stay away,
Until his visit ends?

Would you be glad to have him stay,
Forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief,
When he at last was gone?

  1. Subhan Allah! This got me all choked up!! I don’t think I’ve ever concretely thought about ever meeting our Prophet (sallalaahu alayhi wasallam)!!

    When I read this, the thought came and with the thought came an actual yearning to see him! Before ever meeting us, before our existence, he loved us! Simply because we would believe in his message!

    Imagine meeting the most perfect human being ever created! In his lifetime, everyone who ever met him loved him fiercely! I don’t think I can get a word out if I ever see him! I’ll probably be a crying mess! 😛

    Oh Sis! May Allah grant us Jannah so that we may meet our beloved Prophet (sallalaahu alayhi wasallam)!!!

    • =( Most people probably have never imagined what they would say if given the chance to meet Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam. This is the ultimate dream of every Muslim to meet him subhan Allah.. Btw, I wish you’re able to understand this video I shared on FB!

      I can’t imagine meeting him sis :(.. I don’t think I deserve this privilege to be seated amongst him in the first place. Haha, yea we would be speechless at the sight of him!

      Aameen ya Rabbal Alamin! I hope to be granted a place in Jannah with you sis! 🙂 The final and eternal abode…! ❤
