Sufi Story: True Worship by Bayazid Bistami R.A.

Sufi Mentor and protégé


A devoutly religious man, who was a disciple of Bayazid, said to one day: “I am surprised that anyone who accepts God should not attend the mosque for worship”

Bayazid answered:

“On the other hand, am surprised that anyone who knows God can worship him and not lose his senses, rendering his ritual prayer invalid”
