Muhammad s.a.w : Teacher of Teacher

  

We once had a Teacher
The Teacher of teacher,
 
He changed the world for the better
And made us better creatures,
O Allah we’ve shamed ourselves
We’ve strayed from Al-Mu’allim,
Surely we’ve wronged ourselves
What will we say in front of him?
O Mu’allim…

 

Chorus
He was Muhammad salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,
Muhammad, mercy upon Mankind,
He was Muhammad salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,
Muhammad, mercy upon Mankind,
Teacher of all Mankind.

 

Abal Qasim [one of the names of the Prophet]
Ya Habibi ya Muhammad (My beloved O Muhammad)
Ya Shafi’i ya Muhammad (My intercessor O Muhammad)
Khayru khalqillahi Muhammad (The best of Allah’s creation is Muhammad)
Ya Mustafa ya Imamal Mursalina (O Chosen One, O Imam of the Messengers)
Ya Mustafa ya Shafi’al ‘Alamina (O Chosen One, O intercessor of the worlds)

 

He prayed while others slept
While others ate he’d fast,
While they would laugh he wept
Until he breathed his last,
His only wish was for us to be
Among the ones who prosper,
Ya Mu’allim peace be upon you,
Truly you are our Teacher,
O Mu’allim..

 

(Chorus)

 

He taught us to be just and kind
And to feed the poor and hungry,
Help the wayfarer and the orphan child
And to not be cruel and miserly,
His speech was soft and gentle,
Like a mother stroking her child,
His mercy and compassion,
Were most radiant when he smiled

 

(Chorus)
