A Choice

A beggar asked Ibrahim ibn Al Adham for charity Ibrahim told him: “I’ll give you better than that; come with me.” Ibrahim accompanied the beggar to a merchant, and asked him to find a job for the beggar. As Ibrahim was well trusted, the merchant didn’t hesitate to give some merchandise to the beggar and asked him to travel and sell them in another city.

A few days later, Ibrahim found the beggar still in a miserable condition; surprised, he asked him about the matter. The beggar informed him: “While traveling, I found a blind eagle in the desert, and I was very curious how it got food though it was blind; I observed it for some time and, at my big surprise, another eagle came with food and fed it. Thus, I said to myself: it’s WHO took care of that blind eagle in this desert who will also take care of me! I returned to the city and give the merchant back his goods.”

Ibrahim, after reflection, asked him: “But tell me, why did you choose to be the blind eagle, not the other one, who could fly, chase, and take care of others?”
