To the most Influential man in history. I am full of love for you everyday, but today I want to express my feelings. All of a sudden, my heart is beating, my hands are sweating and my thumbs cannot type. Deep breathe!  There is something I have always wanted to tell you. Just how incredibly fortunate I feel to be part of your ummah.

It has already been 1440 years, 50400 earth-shattering days! I am embarrassed to be writing this to you after 23 years of my life. Sigh! Days have flown.

Ya Taha, I pray that this letter gets its way to the green dome of Masjid Nabawi, having full faith that the Most High is my witness, with no doubt the angels will surely deliver this to my role model. Once you get this, call my name so that I get to visit you. That, for me will be a dream come true.

Where shall I start?  What expressions can be put down to justify how I really feel? Oh Beloved! Peace and blessings be upon you oh light to my heart!

My love, I am not a writer, but for you I will be. This connection is special and amazing. Sometimes I feel like my heart will burst with all the longing and excitement I feel when I think of you.

When I try to describe your beauty, your smile, your character, I find that my words only begin to scratch the surface of my love for you. You are beyond amazing, too much of a wonder for language to describe. How can someone be so perfect? Your description I cannot write, what I have read will not do justice to who you really are. For that, only our Creator knows.

I cry every night yearning for you. Time and patience is harder when you want something so badly. Picturing how it would be if you were here. I crave for just a glance from you, for that will mean both the world and the hereafter for me. I imagine you smiling at me. They say you cannot love someone you have never seen, I have not seen you but the love that I have for you is beyond imagination. I want to be with you every millisecond of my life. I love how you smile when you are reading this.

I pray for your company, in the green gardens. To Drink from your blessed hands, to listen to how beautifully you recite the Quran, to be with you all the time. This time it will be forever.

My heart is full of so many things to say to you, this is the moment when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all. You are home to me and I love coming home.
