From Mahir Awsaf

Letter to the beloved
Dear, Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
By Mahir Awsaf

What should I say?!
For my mouth is dry
What should I say?!
For my heart is trembling
What should I say?!
Except that I’ve waited forever for this day

The day where I can thank you!
The day where my soul meets its teacher
The day where I can hear all the stories untold

Tesla was ahead of his time, but you stand the test of time
Gandhi was revolutionary, but you gave when you had nothing left
All these great people, but only 1 is perfect
You, Prophet Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim

For your heart beats would shake mountains
Your shyness would compare to a virgin
Yet your courage would shock an Angel
Your love would heal those who didn’t want to be loved
What can I say?
Except it’s an insult to you, to use parables as such
For you are a man of God, one of faith
Even the Angel of death sought permission to take your soul
Let alone Allah, who when mentioning you, calls you not by ‘Muhammad’
but rather by ‘Oh Prophet’
