I WONDER...
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 X-rated 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
