The Shepherd

Post by Imran on Mon 25 Apr 2016, 5:42 pm

Once upon a time, there lived in Basra an old
man whose only occupation was caring for and
loving his only son who was a handsome young
man. The old man invested all his money on
his son's education. The young man went away
for a few years and acquired an education at a
well known university under the great scholars
of that age.
The day had arrived for the son to return from
his studies and the old man waited at the door
for his son. When the son came and met his
father, the old man looked into his eyes and
felt great disappointment. "What have you
learnt my son?" he asked, "I have learnt
everything there was to be learnt, father", he
said. "But have you learnt what cannot be
taught?" asked the father. "Go, my son and
learn what cannot be taught", said the old
man.
The young man went back to his master and
asked him to teach him what cannot be taught.
"Go away to the mountains with these four
hundred sheep and come back when they are
one thousand", said the master.
The young man went to the mountains and
became a shepherd. There for the first time he
encountered a silence. He had no one to talk
to. The sheep did not understand his language.
In his desperation, he would talk to them but
they would look back at him as if to say he was
stupid. Slowly but surely he began to forget all
his worldly knowledge, his ego, his pride and
he became quiet like the sheep and great
wisdom and humility came to him.
At the end of two years when the number of
sheep had grown to one thousand, he returned
to his master and fell on his feet. "Now you
have learnt what cannot be taught," said the
master.
NB. It is interesting to note that the Nabis of
Allah Taala (Alayhimus salaam) at some time in
their lives, generally before Nubuwwat, tended
to sheep, and other such animals.
