Birth of Prophet(p.b.u.h)

(IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST COMPASSIONATE, THE MOST MERCIFUL)
The coming of a Prophet
it was a bright morning when at dawn
a beautiful baby boy was born
This long awaited and anticipated being
the likes of which no-one had ever seen
His entry into this world was met with wonder
as in prostration he looked unto the sky from under
A “star” in Medina was seen by a Jew
the coming of a prophet everybody knew!
It was in Makah that a light raised to the sky
this light was seen in Syria “a prophet has been born” was the cry!
His mother amazed at this gift of hers
filled with joy she shed many tears
An angel whispered to her that this was to be
“Muhammad the praised one” whose message would spread to eternity!
Who would suckle this precious baby? The question asked
many aspirant eyes upon him were cast
By the command of Allah Bibi Halima appeared
taking Muhammad to the countryside where he was to be reared
In a home which was empty suddenly blessings were abound
a celestial light encompassed the land all around!
Beautiful Muhammad grew up healthy and strong
fostered for four years until he had to move along
Bibi Amina was overjoyed, for Muhammad did she pray
two joyful years had passed, then Allah took her away
This child of six by his grandfather Abdul Muttalib was taken
where after two years, by his grandfather’s death was shaken
Aboo Talib his uncle, took him at the age of eight
he was very fond of his nephew, although he did not have faith
Four years later, to Syria did they go
a Christian priest Bahira, of this future prophet, he did know
Take care of this boy, Aboo Talib was told
this child is special, this secret, do not unfold!
Many years later, as a businessman, did Muhammad marry
Bibi Khadija a widow, who had many burdens to carry?
At the age of forty, she was relieved by this twenty five years old being
a person such as Muhammad, she had never before seen
It was Ramadan, when in the cave of Hira Muhammad prayed
angel Jibraeel appeared, and an appeal to Muhammad he made
Read in the name of thy lord! A powerful voice was heard
Muhammad was frightened, almighty’s anger, he feared
Comforted by Khadija, who told him not to lament
Muhammad accepted his prophet hood, and thus he felt content.
Waraqa bin Naufal, a learned man said, the angel was the same
that had appeared before prophet Moosa as well, in Allah’s name!
So was the beginning of a long tale to tell
the rest of which, all of humanity knows well.
