#didyouknow: Bayazid [ninth century Muslim mystic] purchased some cardamom seed at Hamadhan, and before departing put into his garment pocket a small quantity which was left over. On reaching Bistam and recollecting what he had done, he took out the seed and found out that it contained a number of ants. Saying, "I have carried the poor creatures away from their home" he immediately set off and journeyed back to Hamadhan, a distance of several hundred miles, and took the ants back to their homes. (Reynold A. Nicholson, The Mystic of Islam) #loveofanimals
