As I lifted my pen to write his praise
By Mariam Riaz
Words failed me, my heart did race
If only the world understood his place
Insignificant am I, what’s my worth?
Yet he prayed for me before my birth
The kindest man to have walked this earth
The moon did fade to his beauty
Despite it, an emblem of modesty
And the highest example of honesty
What would I give to have him here now,
Striking those around him with awe?
What crowds would his presence draw!
The Message he was sent to preach
More liberating than “freedom of speech”
Sent from Heights our minds can’t reach
His Honour came from the skies
It cannot be snatched with their lies
For his mention was only meant to rise
His praise resonates across the world
#WhoIsMuhammad, peace be upon his soul
My teacher, my mentor, beloved above all.
