My dearest shamheer, the brightest lamp of my darkest hours,

You must find me insane, for I also am often aware of my eccentric or irrational behavior, the chants, walking with the old man stick, the trance like attacks amongst many. I worry it may scar you of fear or trouble you with embarrassment, for you have already suffered much including abandonment. Over the course of the next many letters I intend to write, if the Owner of my Soul shall such allow, I will try to tell you exactly what those moments feel in my observations. Often even I worry if I am going insane, for if my mind has taken complete control of my body, or body of my mind, or even if it is a third? Maybe we can find out and take this journey together, for these changes are as new and mystifying to me as they may be for you…

– The Seven: Rules of Interpretation

Ahmad Hanbal and the beggar

Ahmad Hanbal, a man renowned and wise,
Whose knowledge no one dared to criticize,
Would when he felt his mind inadequate
Consult a barefoot beggar at his gate.
If anyone discovered him they’d say:
‘But you’re our wisest man in every way;
When one of us is called upon to speak
You scarcely hear our words — yet here you seek
A barefoot beggar out; what can it mean?’
Ahmad Hanbal replied: ‘As you have seen,
My commentaries have carried off the prize;
In matters of hadith* and law I’m wise —
I know more worldly things than him, it’s true,
But he knows God — much more than I can do.’
Look at this action well before you claim
A justice that does not deserve the name.


– Sheikh Attar’s Logic (arguments) of the Birds
