Song Rating: 9.85/10

Song lyrics:

Intro:
Assalamu alaikum

Verse 1:
As he left the streets of Mecca
He was trying find a home
A place for the believers
Leaving their troubles behind

As he walked through the desert
He was thinking bout his life
10 years into revelation
It was a trying, testing time

He had just lost his wife
Khadijah, umm ul mumineen
And he also lost Abu Talib
His protector from Quraish

Pre Chorus:
Well never no
The burden on his shoulders
The message came from up above
He struggled for you and I

Chorus: (x2)
RasoolAllah
Khalilullah
Sallallahu alayhi wasallam

Verse 2:
So many thoughts had crossed his mind
While he travelled on this journey
Now he came across a town
His destination, At-Taif

And he walked into the house
Of the leaders of Taif
And he called them to Islam
La ilaaha illallah

They did not care what he had to say
Straight away dismissed the Prophet
Making fun and mocking his message
They told him Leave, youre not welcome here

Pre Chorus:


Well never no
The burden on his shoulders
The message came from up above
He struggled for you and I

Chorus: (x2)
RasoolAllah
Khalilullah
Sallallahu alayhi wasallam

Verse 3:
Now the tragedy begins
The prophet ups and leaves
The people of the town
Curse and mock the Chosen One

As if this was not enough
They started throwing stones
Telling this story breaks my heart
He was bleeding head to toe

The Prophet runs away from harm
Finding shelter under a tree
His blessed body covered with blood
And he sits down and prays

Bridge/Middle 8:
To Allah, he called with a beautiful dua
So powerful and humbling, was the prayer of the Prophet
Straight away, a response from Allah
Angel Jibrail came from above with the Angel of the Mountains of Taif

Jibrail alayhi salam said
Oh prophet of Allah
I have bought the Angel of the Mountains of Taif
He will destroy that town and the people who hurt you
Your Lord has seen your pain and hes sent us down to you
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him
He looked at the angels said, dont hurt them
They do not know and I forgive them
InshaaAllah one day they will come to Islam
Look how amazing our Prophet was

Chorus: (x2)
RasoolAllah
Khalilullah
Sallallahu alayhi wasallam
