Exalted son, a saint wrote a tradition and brought it to me (and said), “His Holiness the Prophet (i.e., Maho­met) —may the benediction and peace of God be upon him and upon his family—asked the great (angel), Gabriel, ‘Which service is the best?’ The angel replied, ‘The service of kings which brings benefit and pleasure to the needy.’ I also wish to enter the service of kings and to fulfil the desires of the Mohemadans.” I said, “There is no objection against this (your serving me)”.
