The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

When a sculptor wishes to create an object he needs clay, and with it he makes different models in order to produce, to bring forth the perfect object he desires. So all God's creation, in all its stages from animal and bird to man, and in all the different aspects of names and forms which we see before us, is a preparation to fulfil the desire of God which is man. God's words in the Quran are, "We have made man that he may enjoy the creation." If there is any form of life that pleases God it is man.
