Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) has passed away in Makkah Mukarramah, request is made for fervent Dua-e-Maghfirat and abundant Esaale Sawaab to be sent for Hazrat Maulana (rahmatullah alayh).”
One of his quotes I find beneficial to reflect on at this time is “Strange is the VISA of life-It can be cancelled at anytime. The duration of its validity unknown, and its Extension too is impossible.”
May Allah grant him Jannatul-Firdaus.
