Quotable Quotes - Shaykh Yunus Patel (Raheemahullah)

Recommended Posts

"Many a time, the contention is: “Be broadminded.”


I say: ‘Be broadminded… But you don’t have to open the mind so broadly that your brains fall off."


 


 


When you come into this world people are laughing while you are crying. Lead your life in such a manner that when you leave this world you are laughing and the people are crying


 


 


Strange is the visa of life...it can be cancelled at anytime.


The duration of its validity unknown, and its extension too is impossible


 


 


That Knowledge which does not lead towards Allah,


Is in fact, not Knowledge, but ignorance.


 


 


Do for Allah's pleasure and Allah will give you from His treasure


 


 


‘This brake of the remembrance of death restrains the vehicle of life from the accidents of sin.’


 


 


‘I always say don’t court before marriage. Most couples court, court and court,


and after marriage, they end up in divorce courts.’


 


 


‘I often say: We get instant tea and instant coffee and instant pudding and instant cereal, and so many other things have become ‘instant’


…We are living in such a time, when death too has become just as instant.


We don’t know where, when and how.’


 


 


“Pay back here, if you want to save your back there.”


 


 


“The tongue is a weapon of mass destruction or good construction.”


 


 


The person who wants to please his beloved also fears displeasing that beloved. This is human nature - The lover does not like to displease the Beloved.


We need to just realise that everything beloved will perish, except Allah Ta'ala

wa'alaykus salaam ww

well I'll find his biography later insha Allah but this is how this pious and wonderful friend of Allah died in front of the Ka'bah!

 

According to one of his students, Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel RA finished Magrib salah, prayed his 2 rakat of Sunnah, and then told his students, "Let's move back a bit because people are making tawaaf." While he was walking back away from the Kabah, he felt sharp pain in his chest. His students noticed his discomfort and pain and immediately brought him a chair. Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel RA sat down on the chair, facing the Kabah, and began making Dua. He then recited the Kalimah while looking towards the Kabah, and then collapsed. Died of a heart attack

‘If the heart has “rust”, then bring the “t” back : Trust in Allah Ta’ala,
“Turn” to Allah Ta’ala, make sincere “Taubah” to Allah Ta’ala.’
 
 
 
‘I always say don’t court before marriage.
Most couples court, court and court, and after marriage, they end up in divorce courts.’
 
 
 
‘Haraam brings HARM, and if we take the double “a” in the transliteration of the word ‘HARAAM’,
it brings double harm : Harm in this world and harm in the Aakhirah.
 
Whilst in the wake of Haraam, there is nothing but harm;
in that same Haraam is the companionship of the devil, and that company is evil.
The word “devil” is, in fact, informing us that in befriending the devil, in giving into the whisperings of the devil, we will find ourselves in “evil”. …So take lesson.

The “ruh” of Ilm is Aml,

 

and the “ruh” of Aml is Ikhlaas,

 

and the “ruh” of Ikhlaas is not to even think that you are mukhlis.



*ruh : soul/spirit


*ilm : knowledge


*aml : action


*ikhlaas: sincerity

*mukhlis : sincere

 

 

 

 

 

"When we come into this world, people are happy and joyous, whilst we are crying.

 

We should lead our lives in such a manner that when we leave this world,

we are happy and joyous, and people are crying."

‘When giving a talk in Bolton (UK), I mentioned that the name of their suburb tendered noble advice:
That we place a bolt on the doors of our hearts – to shut nafs and shaytaan out of our hearts, and to protect the treasure of Allah Ta’ala in our hearts.

‘Ghaflat (negligence/heedlessness) is the HEN which lays the EGGS of all other sins.


This is what happens when we become negligent and forgetful of Allah Ta’ala, of Aakhirah and of Accountability: 


We get caught up in sins.’

For the Aarif of Allah, his concern at every step is: ‘Is my Allah pleased with this step?’

When he speaks: ‘Is my Allah pleased with this speech?’

On his every action: ‘Is my Allah pleased with this action?’

Irrespective of what the demand of the nafs may be, the Muslim looks at the Command of His Allah.

The Muslim does not look at the demand of the nafs, He looks at the Command of His Rabb, Allah Ta’ala, and he willingly and happily accepts, complies and acts in accordance with what pleases his Beloved Allah Ta’ala.

"Say good-bye to that friendship which distances us from Allah Ta’ala."

 

 

"The progress of a person depends on righteous deeds and not just on duas. We will have to do something ourselves. Actions have to accompany our duas."

 

 

"The whole world can cry for us, but we have to cry over our sins."

 

 

"Happiness lies in restraining oneself from Haraam."
