That Moment He Smiled Lyrics


WRITTEN BY ZAIN BHIKHA.

Spoken Word by Dawud Wharnsby
“It is narrated that during the death sickness of the Prophet (pbuh) while the people were praying, the Prophet (pbuh) drew back his curtain and stood looking at them. They say his face was intensely illuminating, and there was nothing more beautiful than His face when he looked at them on that day. And then… He smiled. He signaled to them to continue the Salāh and then he closed his curtain. The Prophet (pbuh) passed away later that day…

Darkness fell upon Madīnah tonight, people cried
For God had given his beloved messenger a choice
For so long, he had struggled now he’d won
The hearts of the best believers, a generation so strong

Chorus:
He drew back the curtain and He gazed
Upon those He loved the most and He smiled
His face was shining like the moon
There was nothing more beautiful than the light He brought to this world

Looking back now over 23 years
His message changed the world
People living lost in the wilderness
Darkness over all

He came to revive the dead hearts He awoke
He brought justice, peace and love
With amazing words from God that He spoke

Chorus:
He drew back the curtain and He gazed
Upon those He loved the most and He smiled
He knew that they’d come so far
Did so much to get close to Him and Allah

Gazing out at those standing in prayer
His face like the moon
For they were the fruit of his life’s work
Reviving the truth

Right then He knew that his mission was complete
For through these faces before him, the word of God will forever live

Chorus:
So He drew back the curtain and He gazed
Upon those He loved the most and He smiled
He knew that they’d come so far
Did so much to get close to Him and Allah

What if he was standing right in front of me
Would he cry
Would he take my hand and embrace me in his arms
With tears in his eyes
Would he say to me
Why did you abandon my way
Did you not love me enough
Would he turn and walk away

If He drew back the curtain and He gazed
upon my life today
Over a thousand years later and here I am
Trying oh so hard
There is nothing I wouldn’t do
For that moment in time
Just to see him smile

Chorus:
Just like He drew back the curtain and He gazed
Upon those He loved the most and He smiled
His face was shining like the moon
There was nothing more beautiful than the light He brought to the world
