News - God is everywhere
by Life Positive
At Mecca, he was found sleeping with his feet towards the Kaaba, before which the Muslims prostrated themselves when performing their prayer. Kazi Rukan-ud-din, who observed this, angrily remarked: ďInfidel! How dare you dishonour Godís place by turning your feet towards Him?Ē He also kicked Nanak. The Guru did not show any anger. In fact, he was never angry with anybody. He smiled at Kazi. In a calm, sweet voice he said to him, ďBrother, donít be angry. I am very tired. I need rest. I respect the House of God as much as any one. Please turn my feet in a direction in which God or the House of God is not.Ē
The Kazi took hold of the Guruís feet. He dragged them in the opposite direction. Then he lifted his eyes. He saw the Kaaba standing in the direction of the Guruís feet. He turned the Guruís feet in another direction. The Kaaba was seen standing in that direction. Kazi dragged the Guruís feet to this side and that. He dragged them round and round. The Kaaba was seen to be going round and round. It was always, in the direction of the Guruís feet. His feet were always towards the Kaaba. The Kazi was struck with wonder. He then recognised the glory of Guru Nanak.
Kazi Rukan-ud-din and the other hajjis were all filled with wonder, and he let go of the Guruís feet. The Guru got up and said, ĎDonít you see that Godís House is in every direction? I tell you He dwells in every place, in every heart. He is in your hearts. He is also in mine.í
