When the Angels Prostrated to Adam (a.s.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Muhammad  ar-Rumi (q.s.) wrote:

“When the angels bowed down to Adam,
He said to the one who saw the outward alone:
‘Fool!  Do you think that I am nothing but a small body?’
Do not gaze upon Adam’s water and clay, like Iblis.
Behold a hundred thousand rose gardens behind that clay!
With both eyes, see the beginning and the end.
Beware of being one-eyed, like Iblis the accursed.”
