50 And ihe order was given to Bayezid to say: " I have seen thee by thee; I have heard thee from thee." God said to him further : " The disgrace of this world is lighter than the disgrace " Of thy future world; haste towards what is good; be slow *' Towards what is bad." And the Lord God announced to him: " I have established as duties the exterior and the interior worship: " the exterior worship as a duty for acquiring knowledge, and the k< interior worship as a perpetual duty." Bayezid was perplexed : " If I offer prayers I am u an idolator, and if 1 neglect them i am an infidel; ci for it is said : " * The offering of prayers is idolatry, and the neglect of them *' infidelity." Then the command arrived: 'A Perform the pray- fct ers of the prophet;" he asked: " What prayers " are these?'7 The Almighty God said: " The " praise of the Divinity.'' Afterwards he chose this prayer, as it is said : " The worship of those who are attached to the unity of God is, before " men, like the worship of worshippers; but before God, it participates 4< in the object of worship itself." Bayezid devoted himself so much more to secret practices of piety, about which the prophet has said: " The best remembrance of God is secret remembrance, and the best " food is that which is sufficient." And again : '* Remember your God morning arid evening; and be not one of the *' negligent.1'
