Work Allah gave to Human Beings

Hazrat Hasan Basri (R.A.) found Hazrat Rabia Basri (R.A.) sitting by the bank of the river. He unrolled a prayer rug (Janamaaz) , and placed it upon the water, where it remained, without being wetted, solid as if upon the land.
Hazrat Hassan stepped upon the rug, saying, "Rabia', come, let us make prayer in praise of the Most High!".
Hazrat Rabia' picked up a straw mat next to her and, with a quick gesture, unrolled it in the air, where it stayed floating without the slightest tremor. a yard above the ground.
"Hassan," she said, "what you have done, a fish could do. What I have done, could be done by a fly. Let us now be serious, and be about the work Allah gave to human beings..."

The Naked Man

Once, a supposedly mad man lived in a town.
He walked around completely naked.
Some people called him mad, while some would say he is a friend of Allah.
No one bothered him much, as he seemed to be a begger, too insignificant.
Then one day, he came into a cloth shop, took a piece of cloth , and started to cover himself.
The people at the shop asked him, "why are you wearing something after all these years of not doing so?"
He replied, "what to hide from you wild animals, today a real man is arriving in town!" And he left.

(He apparently meant to say that someone of his level or higher is arriving in town, and so he doesn,t wanted to be seen by him naked)

Love - The best way of worship

No one worships God by any act more pleasing to Him than that of loving Him.

Sufi Story No.3

Once a Wiseman met a Sufi.
The Sufi asked the Wiseman, ‘Can I help you in any way?’
The Wiseman replied, ‘I have come alone and I will go alone, what you can do in this.’
The Sufi replied ‘I can show you the way on which there is no coming and no going.’

This is not Home......

One of the Hadis-e-Nabvi(SAW) Says:

Be in this world as if you are a traveller, a passer-by, with your clothes and shoes full of dust. Sometimes you sit under the shade of a tree, sometimes you walk in the desert. Be always a passer-by, for this is not home.

- Hadith (Sayings of Prophet SAW)

The Mystic,The Earth,The Cloud,The Rain......

Hazrat Bayazid Bistami R.A. said-

A man will not be a mystic until he is like the earth—
both the righteous and the sinner tread upon it,

And until he is like the clouds—they shade all things,

And until he is like the rain—it waters all things,
whether it loves them or not.

You walk,HE runs

If you walk towards HIM(ALLAH),HE comes to you running.
