Shaykh Hamza Yusuf Quotes

He once admonished me with lines of poetry, one after another, until i wanted the earth to swallow me. 

He said to me, "and what is man other than a comet that flashes brilliant light for a moment only to be reduces to ashes." 

He told me several times, "Hamza, this world is an ocean, and those who drown in it are untold numbers. Don't drown" 

-- Shaykh Hamza Yusuf talking about his teacher Shaykh Murabit al-Hajj
