Hazrat1 Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb was the Khalifa3 of two illustrious personalities: Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Mudda Zilluhu)4 and Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi and was, himself, the mentor and spiritual guide of thousands throughout the world.
In character, Hazrat Maulana was the embodiment of piety and righteousness, with a heart burning with the love of Allah Ta’ala and His Beloved Rasool. Hazrat’s sincerity and deep-hearted desire to connect people with Allah Ta’ala and His Beloved Rasool, was manifest in his unrelenting efforts, serving Deen and the Creation of Allah Ta’ala.
The emphasis of Hazrat’s teachings was moral and spiritual reformation and purification; the central theme being the Love of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah, which is the catalyst in engendering piety.
Despite Hazrat Maulana’s demise, Muslims, all over the world, are still benefiting tremendously from the recordings of Hazrat’s programmes, as well as the books of Hazrat Maulana.
Many have found these a means of increasing and strengthening their Imaan (faith) and Yaqeen (conviction) in Allah Ta’ala and their love of Rasulullah.
This book is a compilation of Hazrat Maulana’s advice and brilliant and inspiring analogies, which are found to be very effective in the process of reformation.
Reading through each exposition and one is amazed at the remarkable lessons derived; each one offering ‘food for thought’, and wonderful incentive and encouragement for those seeking the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala.
Most of this book was compiled during Hazrat Maulana’s lifetime and was also edited by Hazrat Maulana
May Allah Ta’ala make this book solely for His Pleasure, and accept the very humble effort. May He make it a Sadaqa-e- Jaariyah for Hazrat Maulana, as well as myself and all those who kindly contributed in its publication.
May Allah Ta’ala grant us all a deep understanding of the knowledge acquired, accompanied with the ‘Taufeeq’ of practice on the commandments of Allah Ta’ala and the beautiful teachings of Rasulullah (1) – with sincerity and Divine acceptance.
May Allah Ta’ala grant Hazrat Maulana high and lofty ranks in the Aakhirah. [Rajab 1434 / May 2013]
