In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ Peace be with you السلام عليكم
by Matthew Isa Fallon
We had the first man Adam, as tall as a tower,
There's the steadfast Yusuf with beauty like a flower,
Also the long-lived messenger so named Noah,
And there was the Israelite Moses who had so much power.
We had Ibraheem, thrown into fire but would not burn,
Remember Suleiman the wise? From whom we can learn,
There's Isa, not dead and he shall return,
And king Dawud, who's voice all would yearn.
Remember Yunus who was stuck for 3 days inside a fish,
And Yahya, who had his head severed and put on a dish,
There was Ilyas whom the Israelites would come to miss,
Also Harun, the Jews disobeyed, against his wish.
Remember Ishmael who went to Makkah, it was his fate,
There's Zakariya from Israel, his people had much hate,
Al-yasa, they called him "a magician", they made him debate,
Remember Dhul-kifl, his wisdom was great.
Idris, his soul was took whilst in the sky,
And Saleh, his people turned away and deserved to die,
Yaqub, told his son was dead, but it was just lies,
There was Hud sent to Aad, their buildings were high.
Remember Ishaq, born to his parents almost beyond hope,
Shu'ayb told his people to not cheat but they said nope,
We had Lut, the wrong sex his people would grope,
Also Ayyub, his suffering was long but he managed to cope.
There were many, many prophets, their faces filled with noor,
They will all be the first to enter heaven's door,
Stretching from America to beyond singapore,
But wait, surely I've forgot to mention one more...
Never will we witness any with his piety,
He came out of the desert calling to One deity,
When Judgement Day comes he's the leader of humanity,
In 23 years he'd built the perfect society.
That's right, his blessed name is Muhammad,
Countless great things was what he did,
His empire defeated the Persian Sassanids,
And through him the Qur'an has descended.
Each one of them, precious as a gem,
La ilaha ilAllah is their anthem,
They are undoubtedly the best of men,
Peace and blessings be upon them.
