A Glimpse at the life of Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel (RA)


Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ) received his higher Islamic education at Darul-Uloom Deoband during the period 1962 – 1969. Hazrat Maulana studied the first volume of Sahih al-Bukhari under the tutorship of Hazrat Maulana Fakhruddeen (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ) and the second volume under Hazrat Mufti Mahmood (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ).
In Hazrat Maulana’s final year of studies, he would accompany Mufti Mahmood (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ), on Thursdays and Fridays, to sit in the company of Shaykhul Hadith, Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ).
After completing his studies, he was advised by Mufti Mahmood Saheb (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ), his Ustaad, to derive benefit from Hazrat Maulana Abrarul Haq Hardoi (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ). Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ) thus proceeded to Hardoi and stayed there for seven or eight days. Hazrat Maulana Abrarul Haq (رَحْمَةُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ) showed great compassion towards him during his stay.
