Stories & Reflections
A student asked his Sufi master to reveal God’s fifth name.
“Whoever knows that name is capable of changing History,” he answered. The master asked him to spend the whole day at the gates of the city.
The boy returned the following day.
“What did you see?” asked the master.
“An old man tried to enter the city to sell a sheep. The guard wanted to tax him but the man had no money. So the guard stole his sheep and chased him off. I thought: if I only knew God’s hidden name I could change this situation.”
“You could have prevented this injustice, but you preferred to stand there dreaming of a revelation. Such stupidity! Well, then, I shall tell you God’s fifth name: act on behalf of others. That’s the only way we can change History.”
