LETTER TO MY BELOVED (s.s.)
I wish I could be in Madina,
And kiss the footprints where you walked.
I wish I was the sun’s rays,
That touched your beautiful face.
I wish I was the wind,
That blew through your hair.
I wish I was the rain,
That drenched your body.
I wish I was the water,
You used to make Wudhu.
I wish I was the food,
That you chewed and swallowed.
I wish I was the cloud,
That gave you shade from the heat.
I wish I was the camel,
On whose back you sat.
I wish I was the bird,
That flew over your head.
I wish I had eyes,
That focused on your beauty.
I wish to be under your green dome,
And beg for your intercession.
I wish to meet you at Kauthar,
And sip from your sweet hands.
I wish to be in your city,
And breathe the same air as you did.
I wish I was the Buraaq,
That carried you to Allah.
I wish I could learn to love you,
Like Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali (r.a.).
I wish I could be like Hassan and Husain (r.a.)
And Bilal (r.a.) who called you to prayer.
I wish for the support of Khadija (r.a.)
To hold firm to my Imaan and build my Deen.
I wish to hear you recite Quran,
So Allah’s words could come alive and touch me.
I wish ALL Muslims could learn to love you, Not just to be obedient, but shed tears for you And sacrifice everything to meet you.
