Kindness

…لاَ تَعْبُدُونَ إِلاَّ اللّهَ وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَاناً وَذِي الْقُرْبَى وَالْيَتَامَى وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَقُولُواْ لِلنَّاسِ …حُسْناً وَأَقِيمُواْ الصَّلاَةَ وَآتُواْ الزَّكَاةَ

…Janganlah kamu menyembah selain Allah, dan berbuat kebaikanlah kepada ibu bapa, kaum kerabat, anak-anak yatim, dan orang-orang miskin, serta ucapkanlah kata-kata yang baik kepada manusia, dirikanlah shalat dan tunaikanlah zakat…

(alBaqarah, 2:83)

(this song is so touching that it has made my eyes swell with tears several times. spoiler below)

how kind one can be ?…

Don’t Talk to me About Muhammad
Dawud Wharnsby Ali

It would be such a pleasure to have you come along with me
I accept your gracious offer
of 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 have been so kind
Your genorosity 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 its 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 rasululla

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

-Dawud Wharnsby Ali

mula2 nk title post ni dgn ‘Rasulullah & Kindness’ sbb post ni psl rasulullah dan kebaikan yg dilakukannya, tp bila fikir balik baik, ‘Kindness & Rasulullah’ lebih bererti sbb bila baca tajuk macam ni, blh rasa setiap kali kita berbuat baik, atau org buat baik kt kita, atau kita tgk org lain buat baik, kita akan teringat kebaikan Rasulullah s.a.w. dan tiada kebaikan yg lebih mulia dan ikhlas berbanding kebaikan rasulullah s.a.w. dan ini akan mendorong kita utk turut ikhlas dan encourage lg kita utk berbuat baik insyaAllah. tp bila buat tajuk mcm tu, akan hilang the essence of surprise dlm lagu ni, sbb blh teka dah lelaki dlm lagu tu rasulullah s.a.w. itu sendiri. so in the end, tajuk ‘Kindness’ jd pilihan. diharap semua dpt iktibar dari kisah yg sgt menarik ni.

berkenaan dgn kisah ni, dikatakan dari sebuah hadis, tapi ana cuba cari tapi tak jumpa. so, kpd mereka yg ada jumpa hadis ni sekali ngn matan dia lg bagus, sila beritahu. jazakumullahukhair

ni description yg sgt menarik psl video ni, amik dari youtube

This nasheed by brother Dawud Wharnsby describes the conversation between an old lady and the Prophet of Islam. Subtitling in English and Malayalam.

This conversation was based upon a hadith in the Prophetic literature, and Dawud Wharnsby Ali made a song out of it, where I first learned of this conversation. Almost every time I hear the song, tears roll down my face. In the song, after the woman utters the shahadah, she says,

“Oh, talk to me, Muhammad. Upon you I pray for peace/for you have eased my troubled mind. Oh, 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.”

This story never ceases to amaze me. The Prophet (pbuh) offered to help this woman, and all she does throughout their encounter is to mock and malign the Prophet (pbuh). Yet, he says nothing. He continues to help the woman with her load. He does not lash back at her; he does not pray for God’s destruction upon her; he does not drop her stuff and let her fend for herself. No. He helps the woman anyway, and when she finds out who he is, all she could do was follow him into Islam.

Yet, the fact that she became Muslim is not the most important aspect of this story for me. It was the Prophet’s character that amazed me the most. It is this aspect of the Prophet’s sunnah that many of us have completely neglected.
