Rumi's Pure Heart

"One day while Rumi was praying in solitude he was so concentrated that he did not
even notice when a man walked in and said: 'I am very poor, I have nothing.' When he
saw Rumi totally entranced in prayer he took his prayer rug and left. When Rumi's
friend learned about this he immediately started searching for this man. He caught the
man trying to sell the prayer rug in the Bazaar. He brought him to the presence of Rumi.
But Rumi replied: 'He must have taken this rug due to his need. Forgive him.
We must purchase back this rug from him.' "
