Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Rahiim

Suatu saat Mawlana memberi shuhba di Dergah Green Lanes di bulan Ramadan, dan beliau mulai berbicara mengenai ruang angkasa. Beliau lalu mengatakan, “Tidak ada astronot yang pergi ke ruang angkasa, kecuali aku berada di sana.” Beliau kemudian tertawa dan beliau menarik buku catatan kecilnya, dan dari dalamnya beliau menarik secarik potongan koran yang berwarna kuning dan digunting dengan rapi. Itu adalah koran berbahasa Inggris dan bertahun 1962. Disebutkan bagaimana orang Amerika kedua di angkasa, Gordon Cooper, memandang ke luar jendela pesawat ulang-aliknya dan ia melihat ada seberkas cahaya hijau yang bergerak di sekitar pesawatnya. Dan Mawlana tersenyum lebar sambil berkata, “Itu adalah aku.”

The Sultan in Space
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem

Mawlana once was giving suhbat at the Green Lanes Dergah one Ramadan, and he began speaking about space. Then he said, “there is no astronaut who went into space except I was there.” And then laughing he pulled out his little diary book, and in it pulled out a yellowed piece of newspaper, neatly cut. It was in English and was dated 1962. It relate how the 2nd American in space, Gordon Cooper, was looking out the window of his spacecraft and saw a green light, moving around his ship. And Mawlana grinning broadly said, “that was me.”
