Once I knew him, I couldn't help loving him.


The stone pebble and the soil under his feet gentle

Delighting in every moment treaded, grateful.

To all the world a mercy, 

The rowdy with mildness to mend.

 

Traveler, happily divine

This world a place of sacrifice suffice.

While the world under his feet did pine

His own shoes he did mend, humbly divine.

 

Piety he wore

Poverty with pride chose

In His Name!

In His Name!

He gave up himself

And all he had.

 

In His Name! In His Name!

All night long, in His Name! In His Name!

Supplicating, all night long

Supplicating, all night long

In the Lord’s way, all night long.

 

This son of Mecca in peace did ascend

To the Heavens in person he did ascend;

An eyewitness to a glory awesome

Yet on earth he moved humble.

 

Peace on the day he was born

Beloved of the Loving One.

The exalted character the Majesty crowned

A spirit perfected by the hand of God.

Beloved of the Loving One

And all those that walk upright.

 

The souls he stirred

With happiness shined;

The ideal nation did evolve

Under this builder of the heart.

 

Let the ignorant say what may

O you, who are astray:

It’s lack of nearness, not knowledge

That feeds on tales.

O you, who are astray:

Know him, and you shall love him.

 

The most praised

Between Heaven and Earth

His name’s a daily renewal.

 

Peace on the day he was born!

Peace on the day he was born!

Ya Muhammad!

Your name’s with the Lord’s joined;

A celebration in the Heavens enjoined

.

From minarets and on mountain tops

In deep valleys and on the sailing ships

In needy hearts

And wherever the Lord resides

Your name’s a daily renewal.

 

Those tears of compassion;

What a happy occasion.

For the women of the world,

For the children of the world—

A community of justice for all he found;

Slave and master in fellowship joined

Under his care hearts rejoiced.

 

In the way of God he did march

Liberator of the sinner, he did march.

In shining armor fought he evil

Fearless in the face of evil.

 

Sad indeed are the souls of darkness

Sad indeed are the souls of darkness.

Your name is praised, Ya Muhammad!

Your name is praised, Ya Muhammad!

From minarets and on mountain tops

In deep valleys and on the sailing ships

In needy hearts

And wherever the Lord resides

Your name is praised, Ya Muhammad!

 

Those who find fault with perfection

Far removed are they from the person praised.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 6/8/2015
I can't see how slave and master can have fellowship. For to be a slave means to be denied fellowship of one's choice. Devotion to an entity, a man, or man god is tantamount to cultism. To be devoted and religious means to be subservient to a cult.
