Yesterday you were making unseen deals Come and see for yourself today

In the time of Caliph Harun al-Rashid, there was an elder Hazrat Bahlol Dana who was always in a state of ecstasy.
He would often sit on a pile of sand and build small houses like children, then suddenly demolish them.
Once Haroon Al-Rasheed and his wife Zubeida Khatun came here on horseback.
Haroon-ur-Rasheed saw that Hazrat Bahlol was making and demolishing sand houses as usual.
He approached and jokingly asked Hazrat Bahlol,
What are you doing?
Hazrat Bahlol replied with great selflessness:
I am building a palace in heaven.
Haroon Al-Rashid said:
Hazrat, will you sell this palace?
Hazrat Bahlol replied:
Yes i will sell
Haroon Al-Rashid asked how much?
Hazrat Bahlol said:
One dirham
Haroon al-Rashid laughed at him and ordered him to walk.
Meanwhile, his wife Zubeida Khatun took a dinar out of her pocket and threw it at Hazrat Bahlol.
Hazrat Bahlol picked up a stick and drew a letter from a householder and said:
Daughter! A palace of yours is ready in heaven.
Zubeida Khatun was overjoyed to believe that she had found a palace in heaven while she was alive.
At night, Haroon Al-Rasheed had a dream that he had come a long way while hunting deer in a forest and his nature was getting very weak due to hunger and thirst.
Suddenly he saw in front of him a very large and beautiful palace made of gold and silver.
When Haroon Al-Rasheed reached near the palace on horseback, he saw that the name of Zubaida Khatun was written on his door.
Haroon al-Rashid was very happy and started going inside the palace.
At this, the guards of the palace stopped him and said, “You cannot enter the palace.”
Haroon Al-Rashid said that Zubaida Khatun is my wife.
The guards said no relationship worked here.
He who has a palace is the owner of it.
No one else is allowed inside.
Haroon al-Rashid was disappointed and changed.
In this world, his eye was opened.
The rest of the night was spent in great uneasiness and anguish.
Ali al-Sabah ordered that a ride be prepared.
When Haroon Al-Rasheed came to Hazrat Bahlol on an elephant, he saw that Hazrat was busy with his work as usual.
That is, houses of sand are being built and demolished.
Haroon Al-Rashid asked:
What are you doing?
Hazrat Bahlol said:
I am building a palace in heaven.
Haroon Al-Rashid said:
Will you sell?
Hazrat Bahlol replied,
Yes.
Haroon Al-Rashid asked:
Hazrat how much?
Hazrat Bahlol said:
Your whole kingdom.
Haroon Al-Rashid was shocked.
With great difficulty he overcame his senses and stammered:
Hazrat! Yesterday the price of the palace was one dirham?
Hazrat Bahlol said in a very confident tone:
Yesterday you were making unseen deals. Come and see for yourself today. “
