A SHEPHARD’S MIRACLE
ONCE Hadhrat Ibraahim Bin Adham passed by a shepherd who was tending to his flock. He asked
the shepherd if he had any water or milk. The shepherd asked: “What do you prefer – milk or
water?” Ibn Adham said: ‘Water’.
The shepherd struck his staff on a rock and water gushed from it. The water was colder than ice
and sweeter than honey. Hadhrat Ibraahim Bin Adham drank of the water, and stood bewildered.
The shepherd commented: “Don’t be surprised. When the servant obeys His Rabb, then everything
obeys him (the servant).”
