Rabia Al Adawiyya, Hasan-Al Basri and beasts of the mountain

Publié le par Zahia

One day Rabia Al Adawiyya  had gone to the mountains, and hordes of wild beasts, goats and gazelles thronged about her. When Hasan al-Basri suddenly appeared on the scene, they all scattered in fright. Inwardly perturbed by this event, Hasan al-Basri  asked Rabia , "Why did they make friends with you but flee from me?"

"What was your meal today?" She asked in return.

"A mere broth," said  Hasan al-Basri .

"Well, you eat of their fat. Why shouldn't they be in fear of you?"

Publié le par Zahia

Once Hassan al basri went to Rabia and said: "In love's way so much you endured and all of this strength has come from you, so to me where this ability come from,do, this inner light you have...not by reading nor learnt from another, nor was copying."

Rabia replied:"O Master of this period, I did spin a small piece of coton thread...I went with them outside and them I sold,to get two coins of silver I was satified...I didn't receive each of them into one hand, I took one in one hand, other in other hand, for I was afraid that if they were together, clink would take me from the way forever."
