Dear Prophet Muhammad,
Writing a letter is easy, but writing it to you, a person so extraordinary, so forgiving, and merciful, it feels almost impossible to describe how much you mean to me, how much you have influenced me to be a better human being. I hesitate writing these simple words, i fear that it isn’t enough, you deserve much more than what i am to write, deserve much more from us when you’ve asks Allah to forgive us for our sins. How can someone have so much to give and want something so simple in return? You only ask us to be good Muslims, good people, and i ,personally, have not returned the favor. Years before there were more stars in the sky, and as centuries passed by, stars began to fade away. Stars are the beautiful maps that are drawn in the skies, people would depend on the stars to lead us the right path, and now we don’t need them yet we can but choose not, or maybe even forget. Prophet Muhammad, you lead us to the right path, you are the twinkling beautiful stars that lighten up the way to the gates of heaven, if we continue to do what you ask and what Allah asks us to do, we will be able to drink the holy water, zamzam, from your bare hands. I thank you for being the perfect role model, for being such a merciful human being to show us what Islam is, and how simple and beautiful it is, for forgiving us for our doings, for seeing the best in everyone of us. Allah sent an angel to you and asked if you wanted to end the world right then and there, but instead you let life continue.
قال النبي- صلى الله علیھ وسلم: )نعمتان مغبون فیھا كثیر من الناس الصحة والفراغ(
I do cherish many things, especially my health, it is a blessing from Allah, i do not cherish my free hours, instead of praying, or reading you book, Allah, which you have brought down from the heavens and sent to the prophet peace be upon him, and doing things in the sake of you and Allah, I spend my time on things that will not lead me to you. In a world and society today, I fell blind folded by Islam and your remembrance. I need to thank you, Prophet Muhammad, for everything you are willing to sacrifice for us and for me. I thank you, love you, and have faith in you, even though I cannot see you. These words I write to you are not enough; I have so much more to say. I will become better, so that when I die, I can say this to you and more in heaven, inshaAllah.
