“That’s What Muhammad Said” Lyrics

I try not to waste water
That’s what Muhammad said,
And always fill a bowl
Cause that’s what Muhammad said,
be nice to my father
That’s what Muhammad said,
Better to my mother
That’s what Muhammad said,
Respect to my elders
That’s what Muhammad said,
And good to my neighbours
That’s what Muhammad said,
And never loose my temper
That’s what Muhammad said,
Smiling is much better
That’s what Muhammad said,,

Muhammad came to guide us
And what a perfect teacher
Allah has sent to us

I always pray on time
That’s what Muhammad said,
And fast through Ramadan
That’s what Muhammad said,
Pay all my zakat
That’s what Muhammad said,
To those less fortunate
That’s what Muhammad said,
And only when I’m able
That’s what Muhammad said,
I perform my Hajj
That’s what Muhammad said,
To never be unkind
That’s what Muhammad said,
Be honest all the time
That’s what Muhammad said,

When I sleep at night
Cause that’s what Muhammad said,
I say all my Du’a
Cause that’s what Muhammad said,

And then I hope to see the beautiful face of Muhammad in my dream…

“That’s What Muhammad Said” is written and produced by Subhi Alshaik.
