Seeking Layla Everywhere

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Farid ad-Din ‘Aththar Abu Hamid ibn Abu Bakr Ibrahim (q.s.) wrote, in Manthiq ath-Thayr, “One day, Majnun was sifting earth in the middle of a road.  A pious man said to him, ‘O Majnun, what are you seeking here?’

‘I seek Layla,’ replied Majnun.

‘How can you find Layla here?’ said the other.  ‘Could a pearl so pure be found in such dirt?’

Majnun said, ‘I seek her everywhere, so that one day I may find her somewhere.’”
