The Sleeping Ascetic

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

One of the reports states that ‘Isa (a.s.) passed by a sleeping man while the people were worshipping.  ‘Isa (a.s.) said to him, “Rise and worship with the people.” 

He replied, “I have worshipped, Spirit of Allah.” 

He asked him, “And what was your worship?” 

He replied, “I left this world to its people.” 

He told him, “Sleep.  This is an excellent worship!”
