One of my dear friends one day asked me the following question: "Do birds understand each other's language?” "Certainly," I answered, "they do.” My friend replied: "How do you know this?” "It so happens that in the beginning when who is the Maker in the real sense wanted to manifest my being that not yet was, He created me in the form of a falcon. However, in the land where I was there were also other falcons; we talked to one another, we listened to the different words and we understood each other.”

('aql-i-sorkh) of Suhrawardi 1154-1191
