Muhammad – Mercy To Mankind

A man who taught mercy, kindness and duty;
A man who repelled evil with virtue and beauty.

A man who brought forgiveness and inspired the truth;
A man who dispelled racism and was never aloof.

A man who sought justice and the end of oppression;
A man who was forbearing through trial and repression.

A man who loved orphans and supported the weak;
A man who gave life to the rights that we seek.

A man with compassion and loving grace;
A man who smiled at every face.

A man who affirmed and taught God’s Divinity;
A man who inspired hope and endless serenity.

A man who was upright, honest and kind;

He was the Prophet Muhammad, a mercy to mankind.

And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as mercy to the worlds.
The Qur’an, Chapter 21, Verse 107
