He prayeth best who loveth best both great or small

(a short story)Once upon a time there was an honest and a pious man. He name was Abu-Ben-Adhem. He was once sleeping peacefully. Suddenly he woke up and saw an angel writing the name of the persons who loved God. (a short story) He inquired on him whether his name was there. But the angel said. “No, your name is not here”. He then requested to put his name in the list; because he loved mankind and his fellow brethren. (a short story)The angel took down his requests and went away. He again appeared the next night and showed Abu that his name was at the top of the list of those who received the blessing of God. (a short story)
