I will forever remember that day when I fell in love with a man while studying in University. I fell so hard for him; in fact, he was my motivation for getting up most mornings, and going to school. Every time I thought about him, a sense of serenity would emerge on my face in the form of a smile. This man was remarkable in every form – he was perfect.

When my heart was so full of love for this man – and I mean so full that I swear it was about to burst- I knew it was the right time for me to tell my husband about him. In all honesty, I had a feeling my husband knew of my love before I even told him. After all, he noticed how eager I was to attend my lecture, he noticed the positive change in my behaviour and attitude – he noticed a new me.

I started off by telling my husband of the beautiful qualities of this great man, and how it was these very qualities that transformed who I was as a person. This man changed the way I looked at life, how can I not love him? I asked my husband. My husband just smiled. Yes, he smiled!

My husband took over the conversation by informing me of the same love he shared for this man. He loved him too. He said if only I knew of all the amazing things this man did, then…well, then I would be even more in love with him! Subhan’Allah! I was speechless.

This man who my husband and I loved so deeply, was our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It was through my Religion course, at the University of Alberta, where I had truly learned who our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was, and it was through this course that I had completely fallen in love with him. When I had learned that our Prophet was kind even to his enemies, I knew there was none of his kind! His acts of kindness, how he spread the message of Islam and peace, how his enemies transformed into his followers- everything about him made me fall in love with him! Subhan’Allah! His love for his people has shown me how to become a better person, a loving daughter, a caring wife, and nurturing mother – I have been transformed, Alhumdulillah! © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)
