A story about Laila and Majnun

E-mail Print PDF


Majnun walking lost in the thought of Laila passed right in front of someone praying. The person became so upset, that after leaving prayer, confronted Majnun saying; Do you not know how rude and wrong it is to pass in front of someone praying?

To which Majnun answered; I who was lost in the thought of my beloved, did not see you. How is it, you who were in contemplation of the Beloved of all creation, saw me?

A Hadith relates; Pray as though you are in the presence of God, as though you see Him and if you can not do this, know for certain that He sees you.
