Gems 26 - 30

Bismihi Ta’ala

Selected and concise advices / sayings 
of Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh)


Happiness lies in restraining oneself from Haraam.


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.
