OF HIM, WHAT THEY SAID!
For about one and a half thousand years
Saints and sages and kings and seers,
Have been defining the last prophet’s profile,
In their own way, and in their own style.
Out of that, here I put up a few
What they think of him, how their thoughts grew!
To him, full attention most people paid
I just sum up, of him what they said.
In “Heroes and Hero Worship”, Thomas Carlyle said,
“As a true prophet, he, to me has stayed”.
“ Most influential man in human history”, said Thomas Carlyle,
When he studied his life, and thought for some while.
“And His was a voice from unknown deep”.
In good faith, Carlyle’s words we should keep.
“Of all sacred religions”, Leo Tolstoy says,
“In prophet’s teachings, lies the essences. “
In “Voltaire and Islam”, goes Voltaire’s saying
“Prophet was a mighty conqueror, and a just king,
And a wise legislator and a pious prophet,
He fulfilled great role before people of this planet.”
In “The Genuine Islam”, G.B.Shaw writes with heed,
“For the future Europe, acceptable will be Mohammad’s creed.
In the new world era, if he takes absolute lead
In solving it problems, with peace and happiness he would succeed.”
Encyclopedia Britannica does honestly write
“The prophet was a man with great insight,
And he was a man honest and upright,
Winning loyalty of those, like-wise honest and upright.”
“The prophet was”, as his view Lane Pool made,
“Most faithful protector of those he protected.”
In “Biography of Prophet”, Karen Armstrong made it clear,
“Non-violence was the culmination of his prophetic career”.
In “Life Of Mohammad”, Sir William Muir wrote,
And his candid words, I must really quote.
“Modesty and kindliness, generocity and patience,
In prophet’s conduct, pervaded this essence”.
Keeping his faith solemn, sincere and dart,
In “The 100”, thus put in Micheal Hart,
“Supremely successful for religious and secular cause,
The only man in human history, the prophet was…”
In “Life And Teaching Of Mohammad”, Annie Besant says,
About the messenger of Supreme, his character and his ways,
“It is impossible for anyone, studying prophet’s life,
To feel anything but reverence towards Him and his strife.”
What I wrote here, is truth bound
And in books and on web, all can be found.
In this work, I said nothing without reference
And all that you read here, makes positive sense.
