A Story about Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander (a Sayed Sufi saint, philosopher, poet, and qalander)


“There is a story about Lal Shahbaz Qalander,” said Lal Peri. One day Lal Shahbaz was wandering in the desert with his friend Sheikh Baha ud-Din Zakariya. It was winter, and evening time, so they began to build a fire to keep warm. They found some wood, but then they realized they had no fire. So Baha ud-Din suggested that Lal Shahbaz turn himself into a falcon and get fire from hell. Off he flew, but an hour later he came back empty-handed. “There is no fire in hell,” he reported. “Everyone who goes there brings their own fire, and their own pain, from this world. “
