For the past few days I have been remembering my late Shaykh Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel saheb Rahmatullahi Alayh quite a bit.
Today I was reading a thread on everyone's favourite forum. The thread reminded me of a lot of problems I had before I came in ta'alluq with Hazrat Rahmatullahi 'Alayh. However, there was one particular zikr majlis of Hazrat that completely changed my way of looking at the world. In this majlis Hazrat recited a naat, and the following verses really did sum up the problems of the world and the only solution.
Sukun-e-jahaan tum kahan dhoondte ho?
Sukun-e-jahaan hai nizaam-e-Madeenah
Where are you going searching for peace?
Peace is in the nizaam of Madeenah
What does nizaam-e-Madeenah mean? Quite simply, it is referring to the system by which the people of Madeenah lived, ie the following of the sunnah of Rasulullah Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam. People go all over looking for peace. They spend money upon money in the search of peace, but it is to no avail. Why? Because unless one inculcates the teaching of Rasulullah Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam, there will be no peace.
As for he who is following the sunnah, it does not mean that wordly troubles will not afflict him. However, on the outside the person may be going through some tests and trials, but on the inside he will be at peace, because he knows that His Allah is pleased with him.

May Allah Ta'aala grant Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel saheb Rahmatullahi Alayh the highest rank in Jannah, Ameen.
