Omar Esa - The Story of Taif 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 mu'mineen And he also lost Abu Talib His protector from Quraish Pre Chorus: We'll 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, you're not welcome here" Pre Chorus: We'll 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 he's sent us down to you Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him He looked at the angels said, "don't hurt them They do not know and I forgive them In'shaa'Allah one day they will come to Islam" Look how amazing our Prophet was Chorus: (x2) RasoolAllah Khalilullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam
