From Seema

Dear Beloved Prophet Peace be Upon You,

I am a teenaged girl that believes in you and Allah in every possible way. But unfortunately, in this age and time, many obstacles, distractions, and challenges have been set. I am trying to find my way through them. Just recently, I have felt that you were with me this whole time. I feel like you were a person I’ve known for ages. Today, I am writing to you assuming I know what to tell you, but words and sentences would not be enough to describe my feelings toward you.

Dear Prophet (Peace Be Upon You), I want to explain to you how I feel as a believer, a Muslim, and a contributor to society. I want to confess that I am not perfect at all, and that I face difficulties and struggles. I want to tell you that I’m trying my best to follow your footsteps. I know that everything I am today as a person, came from you. You taught me the qualities of forgiveness, kindness, and respect. You taught me how to be a loyal friend. You taught me how to choose the right friends, as you have said: “المرء على دين خليله فلينظر أحدكم من يخالل”.

Contributing to society is one important factor to me. I want to die knowing I have made a change in this world. As you have said: “إذا مات ابن آدم انقطع عمله إلا من ثلاث: صدقة جارية، أو علم ينتفع به، أو ولد صالح يدعو له”.

Oh Prophet, I feel ashamed knowing that I am not perfect. And I want to be better in every way. Please forgive me for whatever I have done. And finally, thank you for everything.

Sincerely,

Seema Rida

From Ayah

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.

Message to the beloved

To my beloved prophet (PBUH)

Mohammad (PBUH) you are the messenger of god (SWT). He قال الرسول )صلى الله علیھ و سلم( : .sent you down to give us Islam The way you gave it to us is”انما بعثت لاتمم مكارم الاضلال”. unbelievable. However, people destroyed your message. This letter that you are receiving now is mostly to thank you. I am so grateful that you especially sent us this beautiful religion.

The second that you passed away, let all your tiring work easily go away. The internet, electronic devices, social media, and more of these ridiculous creations are playing with peoples’ minds. As a result, Islam and the right deeds are swishing away. Sadly, it’s like you never came. The world is negatively changing every day to the worst. Furthermore, people started judging others by specific things such as money.

The Arab world was once a beautiful Islamic environment. However, it is now destroyed. It’s a piece of people losing their families, homes, money and mostly their power. Awfully the whole world is against us. This generation is a mess now.

Thankfully, I don’t lie, and I listen to my parents. I fast all Ramadan and study as I am told to. I am respectful to everyone and forgive others because I hate to hurt their feelings. I surely have bad deeds however, I am trying to fix them up to good deeds. Hopefully, I will follow your sunnah inshallah.

I hope you can come back and fix everything. I hope you are beside me every second in my life. I hope you can feel the love I give to you. You are the most important person in this entire world.
