"The reason for my withdrawal from and repudiation of the army, as well as my following this path [of Sufism] and my propensity toward it was [as follows]: When I went out in the company of my Lord (makhdumi), the [Almohad] Prince, Abu Bakr Yusuf b. 'Abd al-Mu'min b. Ali, to the great mosque in Cordoba,15 and I saw [the Prince] bowing and prostrating and humbly abasing himself in supplication to God (To Him belong Might and Majesty!), an idea (khatir) stirred in me [so that] I said to myself: 'If this, the ruler of the land, is so humbly submissive and does this before God (Be He exalted! To Him belong Might and Majesty!), then this world is worth nothing.' So I left him on that very day, and never saw him again. There- after, I followed this path."
