Suhrawardi: The Language of the Ants: The Nightingale
- Every wing stretches in Remembrance of Your Name
The Language of the Ants By Shahaabed-din Yahyaa-ye Suhrawardi
The "Martyr Sheikh" Suhrawardi also known as the Sheikh Ishraaq, the
founder of the philosophy of Illuminism, crafted many abstract
stories teaching the fundamentals of Irfan & Sufism.
Here from the collection: The Language of the Ants, you can read the
story of The Nightingale. On the bottom of the page there are
questions. Can you answer them? Can you re-write the story for human
psyche and spirituality? Can you relate to the story in your
personal life and experiences?
The story is carefully crafted to be very simple and yet there are
subtleties veiled by the simplicity.
The best re-write will be posted on the site INSHALLAH.
