Concentration: Lost

For God's sake.. Remember your love!!

Laila was a beautiful girl born in a rich family. Being no less than a princess, she was expected to marry a wealthy boy and live in grandeur and splendor. She fell in love with Majnu, a poor lad. The two lovers were banished from seeing each other. Laila's parents married her off to a wealthy boy and she lived in a big mansion. She couldn't bear the separation and committed suicide. Majnu became a madman and ultimately died on Laila's grave. Text Credit: external link

Majnu's love with Laila was examplary. Majnu gone made after her that he started wandering in the streets of Arabian city

Once majnu crossed in front of the a worshipping man. (according to islamic law, it is not fair to cross a worshiping man within a certain distance because it may divert his concentration towards God). That man scolded majnu for this false. "Majnu replied, I was so much carried away in the love and memory of Laila that I could not differentiate/see if someone were praying in the way. What about you, your concetration towards God..or me?! "
