A Letter To The Prophet (Saw)

A Letter To The Prophet (Saw)

If I saw your smile, I would cry out of happiness,

If I saw your tears, I would cry out of sadness,

If only I could have been there catch your tears,

I look into the mirror, and wish to see you there,

When times are hard, I wish for your company,

Your smile alone, would dispel my sorrows,

When times are hard,

I ask myself, what would you advise me,

I first read about you, and your mercy and compassion towards others, and I fell in love,

I pray to Allah to help me follow your footsteps,

Just to even sit where you sat,

Walk where you walked.

You are my role model,

My reflection in the mirror which I can’t yet see,

I want to love what you love, and dislike that which you dislike,

I stand in prayer, and look to my side wishing you were there,

You are the friend I am searching for,

But I know I will never find,

You truly are the ‘one’ out of mankind,

If I was ever given the chance to catch a glimpse of you, I would travel from the West to the East,

I only wish to be like you,

I miss you….

I can now only wish to be the closest to you on the Day Of Qiyamah, because even then I will be comforted by your presence,

I thank Allah for making me part of your Ummah, and is above an honour to aspire to be like you…

For you truly are a Mercy To Mankind…

“We have sent you (O Muhammad) as a mercy for all the nations” (al-Quran 21:107)

  • Mashallah i was afraid that it would include some type of shirk but alhamdulillah there was none. Some people overpraised prophet muhammad (pbuh) and therefore sometimes committed shirk.

  • Masha Allah!

    What amazing pearls in such prose!

    A Great reminder and message

    May we be like him [sallahu alayhi wa sallam]

  • why are we so worried about committing shirk by loving someone too much or too less, there are about one billion souls, do we have a dearth of thing to keep our hearts from bleeding, when we can’t promise ourselves a decent childhood not spent in detention, a ride that will not disappear forever from memory or a mug of coffee that we can call our own.

  • Ya Aysha, Allah Soubanahou Wa Talla has given to Seydina Muhammadou Rassoulalahi, blessings that no mind can catch, no eyes can see, and no ears can hear; only the heart can feel them. And it is very possible that among the replies you get, one might be from Ya Rassoulalahi. May God grant your wishes, and allow you, in this coming Ramadan, to enjoy the presence of the Prophet Alayi Salaam. Ameen

    Say: “O Allah . Lord of Power (And Rule), Thou givest power to whom Thou pleasest, and Thou strippest off power from whom Thou pleasest: Thou enduest with honour whom Thou pleasest, and Thou bringest low whom Thou pleasest: In Thy hand is all good. Verily, over all things Thou hast power.
    “Thou causest the night to gain on the day, and thou causest the day to gain on the night; Thou bringest the Living out of the dead, and Thou bringest the dead out of the Living; and Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou pleasest, without measure.”
    (Al-Quran 3:26-27)
