Don’t Talk to Me about Muhammad

Don’t Talk to Me about Muhammad

A beautiful song about Prophet Muhammad by Dawud Wharnsby Ali.
It describes a conversation between an elderly lady with a man who offered her help.

Lyrics:
It would be such a pleasure to have you come along with me
I accept your gracious offer

Kindness and company
But as we walk along young man
And as you help me with my load
I’ve only one request as we travel down this road

Don’t talk to me about Muhammad
Because of him there is no peace
And I have trouble in my mind

So don’t talk to me about Muhammad
And as we walk along together
We will get along just fine
As we walk along together
We will get along

That man upsets me so
So much more than you could know
I hear of his name and reputation everywhere I go
Though his family and his clan once knew him as an honest man
He’s dividing everyone
With his claim that God is One

So don’t talk to me about Muhammad
Because of him there is no peace
And I have trouble in my mind

So don’t talk to me about Muhammad
And as we walk along together
We will get along just fine
As we walk along together
We will get along

He’s misled all the weak ones
And the poor ones and the slaves
They think they’ve all found wealth and freedom
Following his ways
He’s corrupted all the youth
With his twisted brand of truth
Convinced them that they all are strong
Giving them somewhere to belong

So don’t talk to me about Muhammad
Because of him there is no peace
And I have trouble in my mind

So don’t talk to me about Muhammad
And as we walk along together
We will get along just fine
As we walk along together
We will get along

Thank you now young man
You’ve really been so kind
Your generosity and smile are very rare to find
Let me give you some advice
Since you’ve been so very nice
From Muhammad stay away
Don’t heed his words or emulate his way

And don’t talk about Muhammad
You will never have true peace
And trouble is all you will find

So don’t talk about Muhammad
And as you travel down life’s road
You will get along just fine

Now before we part and go
If its alright just the same
May I ask my dear young man
Who are you, what’s your name

Forgive me what was that?
Your words weren’t very clear
My ears are getting old
Sometimes it’s difficult to hear
It’s truly rather funny though I’m sure I must be wrong
But I thought I heard you say
Your name is Muhammad
Muhammad

Ashaadu anlah ilaha illalla Wa ashadu anna muhammadur rasulullah

O talk to me, Muhammad
Upon you I pray for peace
For you have eased my troubled mind
O talk to me, Muhammad
And as we walk along together
We will get along just fine
As I travel down life’s road
I will get along
Just fine.
