Shuhba Sayyidi Mawlana Syekh Nazim mengenai Rombongan Kafilah dan Tanah Berbatu

“Melalui kitab-kitab tradisional dari para Anbiya dan Awliya tertulis bahwa manusia bagaikan rombongan kafilah yang pergi dari satu negeri ke negeri lainnya dan di malam hari mereka tiba di suatu lembah yang gelap tak bercahaya. Mereka tiba dan ingin beristirahat di sana agar siang harinya mereka dapat melanjutkan perjalanannya. Seorang di antara kalifah itu berkata, “Wahai manusia, ini adalah sebuah lembah di mana semua batu-batunya adalah permata! Kumpulkanlah sebanyak-banyaknya.” Beberapa orang berkata, “Ehhhh batu-batu? Banyak batu, aku tidak mendengar, aku sangat lelah. Aku tidak mau mendengar hal semacam itu.” … Sebagian dari mereka berkata, “Eh, aku dapat mengambilnya beberapa dan kumasukkan ke dalam kantong.” … sebagian yang lain mengambilnya hanya untuk sebagai sampel. Sementara yang lainnya percaya kepada orang itu dan mereka mengosongkan karung-karung mereka dan mengisinya dengan batu-batu di sana, lalu mengangkatnya ke unta-unta mereka. Kemudian terompet untuk meninggalkan lembah itu dibunyikan–saat itu masih malam dan mereka sedang beristirahat–mereka pun kemudian pergi. Mereka melewati sebuah jembatan dan sampai di suatu tempat, kemudian matahari terbit, siang mulai menjelang dan kafilah-kafilah itu melihat bahwa batu-batu yang mereka ambil sungguh merupakan permata yang indah. Orang-orang yang tidak mengambil apa-apa mulai membentur-benturkan kepalanya, orang yang mengambil sebagai sampel merasa menyesal, seandainya saja mereka bisa membawa lebih banyak. Orang yang mengambil dan memasukkan ke dalam kantongnya juga menyesali kesalahan mereka. Hanya mereka yang mengosongkan karung-karungnya dan mengisi dengan batu-batuan ini….Ohhhh, mereka sangat gembira dan sangat puas. Tetapi tidak ada jalan kembali ke lembah itu. Itu hanyalah jalan satu arah, mustahil untuk kembali, karena jalan itu telah terhalang dengan orang lain dan kalian harus terus bergerak…”

“It is written through traditional Books from Prophets and Saints that people are like caravan people: they are going from one country to another country and night time they reach to a valley with no lights. They are landing and asking to sleep there and when the daylight is shining then they may move. And one of the caravan person is saying: “O people, this is a valley that whole stones here are jewels! Collect! As much as possible try to collect, to take. And some people are saying: “Ehhhh stones, so many stones, I am not listening, I am so tired. I am not listening to such a things”… Some of them are saying: “Eh, I may take some to put in my pocket”… Some of them are taking as a sample: Some of them they are believing that person who said this and they are making their sacks empty and filling their sacks, instead of their goods putting in it from that stones and loading on their camels… And then the trumpet for leaving this valley is blown- it was darkness of night and they were taking a rest- and then they are beginning to go. They are passing through a bridge and reaching to a place and then the sun is shining, the day is opening and the Caravan people are looking that really the stones they picked up are sparkling beautiful jewels. Those people that were never taking anything start to hit their heads, other people that were taking for a sample they are thinking if only we filled more and others that they are only taking for their pockets they are also repenting on their mistake. Only those people that were making empty their sacks and filling with these stones… Ohhhh, they reached the top of their happiness and pleasure, wealth… But there is no way to come back to that valley. It was only one way, that you are passing through there. It is impossible to go back, because the way is just blocked with other people and you too must move on…”
