A Love Letter

Assalamu Alaika Oh Messenger of Allah(ﷺ),

You(ﷺ) entered your house one day so cheerful that Aisha(ra) said, ask Allah to forgive me and you(ﷺ) so sincerely replied, “Ya Allah, forgive Aisha her previous sins and her future sins and her public sins and her private sins.” She was so overjoyed that she fell into your(ﷺ) lap and you told her that that’s the dua you(ﷺ) make for the Ummah in every prayer.[1]

One of the nights you(ﷺ) were crying so much that Jibreel came to you(ﷺ) and asked, “What makes you cry?” and you(ﷺ) said, “My Ummah, My Ummah!” So, Jibreel informs Allah(swt) and Allah promises you(ﷺ) and He’ll please you(ﷺ) with your Ummah.[2] Another time you(ﷺ) also cried, but this time it was because you(ﷺ) missed your(ﷺ) brothers. The companions were surprised because they thought they were your(ﷺ) brothers, but you(ﷺ) explained to them saying, “No, my brothers are those who believed in me and didn’t see me.”[3]

Oh Messenger of Allah(ﷺ), I missed the chance to hear your heartwarming voice and see your face that was more beautiful than the full moon. I didn’t get a chance to witness your bright smile firsthand. I didn’t get a chance to stand by you when everyone attacked you. I didn’t get a chance to say that I missed you too.

But I’m writing to you today because I would like to apologize. I would like to apologize because love without action is simply a lie. I’m sorry for all the times I didn’t follow your path and went far from your character. I’m sorry for every day that I forgot to remember you even though you remembered me in every prayer. I’m sorry if my life kept me away from knowing yours. I’m sorry that I didn’t inform others about you when I had the chance. I’m sorry…

So ya Allah, I ask you to forgive me for my neglect of You and Your messenger(ﷺ). I ask You to keep me steadfast and allow me to follow in his blessed footsteps. I ask You to forgive my shortcomings and accept the little that I do for You. Ameen!

صلى الله وسلم عليك يا رسول الله

May prayers and peace be upon you, oh Messenger of Allah!  


Your Brother
