"Aflaki tells us about Rumi:

" 'One afternoon, a musician was playing the violin and the Master was listening with great pleasure. A friend entered and said: 'Stop this. They are announcing the afternoon prayer.' 'No,' said Rumi, 'This also is the afternoon prayer. They both talk to God. He wants the one externally for his service and the other for His love and knowledge.' "
