wealth of time
Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
life is a journey. We are all on a journey and we
are traveling all the time.
if the person is a couch potato, and passing his
life in inactivity and idleness, he too is traveling.
If the person is sitting, lying down or sleeping,
he too is traveling. The person is in a car: The
car is moving and covering distance, and simultaneously,

life is moving on and on.
breath follows another. And every breath of life
is part of that journey. Seconds are ticking away.
Minutes slip through the hourglass of time. Days
and nights bring a close to weeks and weeks bring
a close to months and months bring a close to the
years. Hazrat Hasan Basri (Rahmatullahi ‘Alayh)
had so aptly said: "O Son of Aadam! You are
nothing but a number of days. Whenever a day passes,
a part of you has gone."
