I owe it to YOU

i find my mind drifting.. i can't stop thinking about you. everything you taught me.. everything you still teach me. i yearn to learn more. there's just so much. ur life.. ur experiences.. the way you handle obstacles.. the way you treat those around u.. ur enemies before ur friends even. simply amazing!

ur kindness is unnatural! you've given me yourself, truly and completely. the things u've put up with, for my sake... it just fascinates me! the love i feel towards you, is immeasurable. the respect i have for u, i hold for no other.

any time i face any difficulty, i think of u and how u would handle it.. i remember how u've handled the many problems u've faced in life.. problems, a million times more severe than what i go through. yet, u managed to handle them with humility, with forgiveness, with great wisdom.

you are truly my role model. who else can compare to u? who else can ever stand anywhere close to you? you have taught me how to live.. how to smile.. how to thank God for what i have, and be happy when God pushes troubles in my path. you've given me strength to endure. you've given me light to help me see the way.

my world would be nothing had it not been for ur teachings. i wonder what it would have been like had i actually lived to know u. those who have never witnessed ur days, are still touched by you. to know u, is to love you. to love you, is to understand what you stood for. to understand u, is to know that there's no way to be, but your way.

Allahuma 9allee wa sallim 3ala Sayedna wa 7abebona Mohammed, wa 3ala 2al Mohammed, wa 3ala 9a7behi wa Ahlehi ajma3een...

allahoma saly 3ala mo7amad wa aly mo7amad

athkir once bel 7saineya a whole series of lectures takhasesaw for his life PBUH .. a3terif eny emgassir in that i havent yet read a book abt his life PBUH, bas it really is striking when u see elra7ma, el khulog, el ta3amol, el 3azim .. the sweet thing is that it sounds surreal but u know it to be real

temetwir: i've been trying to listen to cds about The Prophet's (pbuh) life and getting information from different sources. Some of the things i've read/listened to are known facts, others i had known from family or school.. but there's so much that i had heard for the first time and has left me in awe.

Of course, depending on the source, some information may not be 100% accurate. Yet, it doesn't change the fact that the things that El Rasool (pbuh) dealt with and HOW he dealt with them, are pure lessons for all of us! And it's very true when they say, in order to know more about Islam, u really need to know more about El Seera El Nabaweyah!
