Where is Peace?

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.

My words do no justice to the Zikr Majlis that took place on 4th November, 2010, so I request readers to listen to this audio.

Zikr Majlis- 04/11/2010

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


  1. Assalamu Alaykum waRahmatullahi waBarakatuh, subhanAllah, Hearts find rest by the remembrance of Allah...As long as we adhere to the Quran and the Sunnah, but you are sincerely doing from the heart, to the point you feel so enlightened no matter how much trials we get around us, thats mean its a blessing Alhamdulillah. The prophet Muhammad (salalahu alayhi wa salam) is an example for us as he passed through trials, but he was in peace in his heart....
    Jazakallah khair for sharing.

  2. ^^ Wa Alaikum Assalaam and Jazakumullahu Khairan for your reply :)

  3. Alhumdulillaa hazrat molana has behind quite a legacy inshaaAllaah till qiyaamat and just came back from sitting for a majlis for his khalifa Hazrat Molana Dawood Seedat (d.b) i closed my eyes and it was as if Hazrat Molana Yunus (r.a) was speaking and i was transported back in time and then the tears just rolled down my cheeks uncontrollably .May اَللَّهُ elevate his stages in jannah and truly i feel from the many hundreds and may be thousands of mureeds he gave us just two khulafaa and there must be some special qualities of hazrats that they have inherited and i realised this only recently .I have made niyyat to attend Qari Ismail Desai's (d.b) majlis next .
