"We cannot and should not look down upon anyone. Once, a drunkard found a piece of paper with the name of Allah written on it. Although he was half-drunk, he picked it up, cleaned it, put itr (scent) on it and kept it in a safe place.
When he passed away, someone saw him in a dream in which he informed the person that he had gained salvation because of that good deed. This action of his was the means of his forgiveness and salvation.

Yet as he follows his chosen path, it grows narrower and narrower, and hotter and hotter. He continues to fool himself that the path is wide and cool. He refuses to turn away no matter all the slipways
