Farid ud Din Attar: Four Things to Know
Photo: A building above the The Well of Zamzam; Mecca, 1947.
Hatim al-Asamm said, 'I have chosen four things to know and discarded all other things of knowledge: The first is this: I know that my daily bread is apportioned to me and will neither be increased or decreased, so I have stopped trying to add to it. Secondly, I know I owe to God a debt which no one else can pay for me, so I am busy about paying it. Thirdly, I know that there is someone pursuing me ---Death --- whom I cannot escape from, so I have prepared myself to meet him. Fourth, I know that God is observing me, so I am ashamed to do what I should not.'

(Farid ud Din Attar)
