“Is there for me a way to travel swiftly towards Tayba,

To visit the tomb of the Hashimi Muhammad?

That which has spread its fragrance under his protection Has caused the pilgrims to convulse in the direction of Muhammad

I went away bathed in tears, tears falling like a down pour, Yearning towards that Prophet Muhammad,

I swear by the Rahman, I possess not a single excellent trait, I am only totally encompassed in the love of Prophet Muhammad.” (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

Shaykh ‘Uthman Dan Fodiyo,  May Allah have mercy on him
