Sufi and the Honey Merchant: Sufi Story

As a Sufi was hurrying to Baghdad he heard someone say:

“I have a lot of honey which I would sell very reasonably if there were anyone to buy it.

The Sufi said: ‘My good fellow, wouldn’t you like to give me a little for nothing?’

The man angrily replied: ‘Go away. Are you mad as well as greedy? Don’t you know that one always gets nothing for nothing?’

Then an inner voice said to the Sufi: ‘Leave this place and I will give you that which money cannot buy: all good fortune and all that you desire. God’s mercy is a burning sun which reaches to the smallest atom. God even rebuked the prophet Moses because of an unbeliever”
