The Five Hundred Gold Pieces

1 Oct 2017 /
Pieces of gold

One of Junaid’s followers came to him with a purse containing five hundred gold pieces.

“Have you any more money than this?” asked the Sufi.

“Yes, I have.”

“Do you desire more?”

“Yes, I do.”

“Then you must keep it, for you are more in need than I; for I have nothing and desire nothing. You have a great deal and still want more.”
