“If we do not de-mist our hearts of evils like malice, greed, pride, jealousy, anger, etc., then we will be always causing ‘accidents’ in society.
Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
The easiest way to obtain purification of the heart and soul is to spend time in the company of the Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) (the people of Allah) - those who have already purified themselves.”
