The Magnet of Hearts
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

We know that magnets draw different metals: steel, iron, nickel and other material. Imagine if the Ka’bah Shareef had the properties of a magnet. How much would it have drawn – considering its proportions and weight? …One ton? Two tons? Perhaps ten tons?

However, the Ka'bah Shareef is not a magnet, like the magnets of this world. Whilst it is made of stone, it contains Allah Ta’ala’s Tajalliyaat.

It thus has a different kind of magnetic effect. It does not draw metal; rather it draws the hearts. Subhanallah.

Throughout history, we find that Baitullah drew the hearts of the Ambiyaa (Alaihimus Salaam) to it.

Barrier between us and Allah Ta'ala
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

Unfortunately, one weakness, from many weaknesses, is that we look at our achievements and successes with an eye of vanity and conceit.

Our gaze falls on our efforts – that we are the ones who made the effort. We attribute our success and our achievements to our efforts, our sacrifice and our hard work.

…What generally follows is a desire to announce and to boast – to publicize and make known.

The nafs asserts itself. It wants acknowledgement. It wants to be credited.

So many, in their quest for recognition, will exaggerate their achievements – even to the Shaykh. They exaggerate so that they may be distinguished above others, counted as pious and righteous, and become recipient of praise and applause.
Some get carried away by dreams and think that a few good dreams are a surety of their greatness.


“Just as we regard Salaah, Fasting, Zakaat and Haj as Fardh (compulsory), so too is it Fardh to Love Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
