Quotable Quotes - Shaykh Yunus Patel (Raheemahullah)

Recommended Posts

"Do not become relaxed when the nafs becomes obedient."
"In nasihah (advice), do not look at who is giving the advice; rather look at the advice. Sometimes the one who is advising is a child or a person with no standing in society, but the advice is to be appreciated because it offers benefit."
"When we see “qaamat”, we forget our istiqaamat and we forget Qiyaamat."

‘qaamat’ : physical appearance
‘istiqaamat’ : steadfastness
‘Qiyaamat’ : Day of Resurrection and accountability




"The Beauty of Islam is that the rich person does not have to become poor to become a Wali of Allah Ta’ala, and the poor person does not have to become rich to become a Wali."

"A sincere lover of Allah Ta’ala is not satisfied with the slightest of sins."



"If our hearts are in a spiritually health state, we will be able to sense the displeasure of Allah Ta’ala.

There is an ON/OFF switch in the heart.

On good deeds, there is light (noor) and on evil deeds, there is darkness (zulmat)"



"Intelligence can be very misleading if not guided by Qur`aan and Hadeeth."



"If it is Fardh to break your Salaah, which is your communication with Allah Ta’ala, in order to save  the life of a Muslim who is going to die one day, then how much more important it is to curtail everything futile and channel that energy into saving others from Jahannum?"

 *Ilm :  knowledge

*khashiyat: fear / awe



"In the circus, lions are subjected to the commands of man. They are trained to obey. 

Similarly, we have to subject nafs to the Commandments of Allah Ta’ala. 

We have to train the lion of nafs to obey Allah Ta’ala 

and Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam)."



"To cover up our sins, we allow our children to do as they please."



When it comes to demanding a dress or money or some toy, a child begins to cry and insist: 

“I must have it! I must have it!”


Learn from that child. Insist : “O Allah, I must have Your Love.”

"There is no Barakah, in fact, fear of harm in going against the Shaykh's advice."



"Ilm cannot be of help without aml, and aml cannot be of help without Ikhlaas.

Unfortunately, we cannot build up our Ikhlaas because we have Makhlooq (creation) before us."




"As much as our Nisbat with the Akhlaaq of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam), so will our value be in the sight of Allah Ta’ala.


Allah Ta’ala will give honour, respect and dignity."




"The medication for the ailments of the spiritual heart is found with the Ahlullah."



"Always make Dua that the Ilm that you acquire becomes beneficial.

Just increase in Knowledge is the goal of most people these days.."

A Saalik or a person setting out in search of Allah Ta’ala; in the gaining of His Ma’rifat (Recognition), His Love and the love of His Beloved Nabi, Sayyidina Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) must not only be an Aashiq or lover of ‘sweets’ (i.e. of pleasing conditions), but must be prepared to take bitter medicine also, with a willing heart, as proof of his or her Love for Allah Ta’ala.


Pain in the body, poverty in the home, other problems outside or in the family should not affect the tranquility of the heart.


The heart must remain ‘Saabir’ (patient) under adverse conditions and ‘Shaakir’ (grateful) over pleasing conditions.

"Our belief in the supremacy of the Sunnah and Shari’ah should not be dependent 

on scientific proofs."



"There is no place of safety except in the obedience of Allah."



"We should attend and listen to the talks of the Mashaa’ik and Ulama 

with the Niyyah (intention) of ‘Amal’, of practising; otherwise even a Deeni Majlis will 

just be a kind of entertainment or pastime."



"Trust is such a delicate and fragile commodity, that when it is lost,

it is very, very difficult to recover

and when ‘broken’, then sometimes impossible to restore."



"Think before you say or do anything.

A little thinking can protect from a lot of regret."
