Watering the Root
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

The main reason for being unable to solve the many problems the Muslim community is facing presently is that we are misdirecting our energies by ‘watering leaves’, when in actual fact, the ‘root’ is in dire need of water.

…We are not getting to the root of the problem, since we are too pre-occupied in watering the leaves of our problems.


Take the example of Zina (adultery and fornication) which is the scourge of our society : The consequences are illegitimate children, abortions and various physical and deathly diseases. It is common knowledge that many physical ailments today point to immoral, unrestrained behaviour as the cause.

Integrity and Honesty
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
(rahmatullahi alayh)

It has been mentioned in a Hadeeth that a pious person from the Bani Israeel took a loan of 1000 gold coins and fixing a date, promised to pay back at that time. The person giving the loan required witnesses.

The pious person said : ‘Allah is sufficient as a witness.’

He was then asked : ‘Who stands surety on your behalf ?’

The person replied : ‘Allah is sufficient as a surety.’


The person, giving the loan, accepted this, saying : ‘You have spoken the truth.’ And without further consideration handed over to him a thousand gold coins.

On the due date, due to flood, the saintly person could not find a boat to take him across, to his creditor, to make the payment. This both perplexed him and hurt his conscience.



Don't become relaxed when the nafs becomes obedient.”
