A story I wrote as a senior at LUMS for a class on Islamic Spirituality. The story is set in the Golden Age of Islamic civilization, during the Abbasid Caliphate (between the 9th and 12th centuries), and is a parable for three different approaches to Allah, The Divine Being, in classical Islamic tradition.
