Don’t Talk to Me About Muhammad

How would you react if someone treats you badly? Would you still help them when they need your help? Would you forgive them and treat them with kindness? Those were the excellent manners of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

This is a beautiful story about Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) when he (peace be upon him) offered her help to an old lady who used to hate him. We leave you with this beautiful song by Dawud Wharnsby Ali:

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.
