    Smile My Soul is Longing for You (The Holy Prophet)

    An Open Letter to Our Beloved Prophet Mohammad (s)

    You are the light of our eyes.
    Without you we are like orphans,
    somehow scared and heartbroken.
    Now we seek condolence in roses;
    we see you in their beauty
    and feel your smell in
    their sweet scent.

    We are so honoured to
    be a part of your nation.
    We love you dearly.
    We admire and envy those
    who love you even more.
    You know how one waits and
    longs for meeting with the
    beloved. That's how we are
    longing for our meeting with
    you in Paradise.
    We get encouraged and hopeful
    with your saying "you are with
    those whom you love" and
    eagerly wait for our
    meeting by the River
    of Kawthar.

    Our Lord the Exalted who created
    you and made you His Beloved and asked
    the believers to love you and follow
    your example has taught us the prayers
    of invoking Allah's blessings on you to
    help ease our pain of missing you until
    the day we meet in Paradise.

    "Allah and His Angels send blessings
    on the Prophet. O you who believe!
    Send your blessings on him, and salute
    him with all respect" (33:56).

    Every time we ask Allah to send His
    Peace and Blessings on you we also feel
    the blessings of Allah on us.
    We almost visualize the pigeons
    of prayers that we set free in
    the destination of Madinah reaching
    to your blessed garden of rest and
    you holding and pitting them gently.

    The World Has Defeated Us
    The world is a place of travel
    and we are the passers by.
    In this foreign land we often
    trip over and fall into traps.
    Our Lord, the Exalted, Who sent
    us to this world has made you our
    guide. He told us to follow your
    example. We constantly remember
    your guidance not to make a wrong
    step; striving to be like you we
    contemplate on every issue and think
    how you would have acted if you were
    among us now; how you would have
    remembered and worshipped Allah
    or deal with people or eat and sleep.
    We consider you as more important
    than our own lives and love those
    who love and follow you.

    O the best of all the Prophets
    O the master of all messengers
    Even though we consider it the
    highest honour to sacrifice our
    lives in the cause of Islam, we
    have a difficulty in breaking
    the idol of our own ego. You
    reminded us that the World with
    its sweetness and attractions
    may deceive us.

    You warned us of the danger of
    attaching our hearts to the World.
    You told us that the world and all
    that is in it is of no real value.
    You warned us against collecting
    worldly properties.
    You told us that we will be tested
    with material gains and that the
    real life we should strive for is
    the Hereafter. You advised us to
    be like a traveller passing by.
    You did exactly what you told us
    to do. There were time you did not
    find a few pieces of date to eat.
    From the time you honoured Madinah
    until the day you passed away you
    did not find to eat wheat bread
    consecutively for three days.

    O Rasoolullah,
    O Habibullah,
    the world has defeated us.
    The world has become a giant
    and we became like the dwarfs.

    The Abolishment of Oppression

    O Rasoolullah,
    Our main goal is to strive
    against our ego, to revive
    ourselves with the guidance
    your brought, to live like
    a Muslim and to stay as a Muslim.
    The World is playing tricks on us
    coming up in different costumes,
    telling us how to live our lives
    and what to do and how to dress.
    They do not give us the right to
    live like a Muslim and like a
    dignified human being. You have
    abolished oppression with the
    religion you brought and saved
    the victims fragile necks from
    the bloody hands of oppressors.
    The way you saved humanity
    fourteen thousand years ago
    from oppression and injustice.

    The victims, all their rights
    were to be oppressed, revived.
    The oppressors, never thought of
    failure, died. Through the religion
    you brought, the oppression has
    collapsed. You were the answer for
    the hopeless. You have brought the
    value that the human being deserves.
    Now the oppression awakened and wit
    the strength it gained, it is pressing
    down on our throats. Every time we
    are faced with oppression we find
    the condolence in you. We think of
    the oppression you had gone through,
    and can not help but think as if you
    came to this world to endure hardship.
    Remembering that you were an orphan
    and all the other hardships you were
    tested with is like an ointment on
    our own injuries. We think of the
    times that you were seeking guidance
    in the mountain of Nur, tired of the
    disorder in the World. We know that
    the bats who were scared of the light
    that you brought from the mountains
    were disturbing you. Yet, you were
    steadfast and patient despite all
    this hardship. Just as we are about
    to sink in the swamp of irrational
    oppression, we reach out to the Rope
    of Allah that you brought for us.
    Once again we realize why Allah Had
    Made you our guide and example. With
    the pleasure of realizing that you
    are a mercy to the World we shed tears.

    From Humiliation to Exaltation

    O Rasulallah,
    O Habibullah,
    We learned how to be a dignified human
    being from you. With the religion you
    brought, Allah Exalted us from humiliation
    to sovereignty, from a hole to the citadel.
    When we embraced Islam Allah Made us the
    best of nations. We became the superpower
    that others bent down on their
    knees and opened their hands seeking help.
    In those magnificent times that we ruled,
    we followed your example in forbidding
    evil and oppression and giving the
    rights of the victims.
    Unfortunately, as we shifted away from
    the beauty of Islam we dried up, we got
    oppressed, we bent down on our knees and
    open our hands begging. Since then no one
    takes us seriously nor treat us with a
    worthy treatment. We want to wake up and
    revive and come back to our senses and
    raise from humiliation to sovereignty
    and live as Muslims.

    O beloved of the World!
    We want our children to live like
    Muslims, to follow your footsteps,
    and to be saved from the Hellfire,
    whose fuel will be people and stones.
    We want those who try to prevent
    us from our way to have mercy on us,
    and to recognise us and to know that
    we want nothing but the pleasure of
    Allah. We ask Allah to Give them
    guidance and to grant us patience
    and success in our struggle.

    O Rasulallah,
    We truly want to be better
    servants of Allah and better
    believers again. We want to become
    a nation you deserve and be proud
    of. We want to be those successful
    believers who humble themselves in
    their prayers; who avoid vain talk;
    who are active in giving Zakat; who
    guard their modesty; who faithfully
    observe their trust and their
    covenants; and who guard their
    prayers (23:1-11). These days,
    one of the sayings that give us
    hope and keep us going is that
    you gave the glad tidings to those
    servants of Allah who are oppressed
    and are patient in enduring it will
    be exalted by Allah. We have been
    oppressed and humiliated and look
    down on. However, we believed the
    sovereignty belongs to Allah and
    His Prophet and the believers (63:8).
    We pray to Allah to be among those
    who are patient and thus will
    receive sovereignty and honor
    that they deserve. We also pray
    to be among those who will be
    subjected to your intercession
    on the day of judgement.
