Glimpses : Young Inayat and the sweets

Once, when Inayat was still very young, it happened that his father brought him home some sweets, but finding the child asleep, put them aside till morning. During the night Inayat had a vision in which he saw exactly what his father had done. As soon as he awoke, the child called out for the sweets, but his mother, not knowing what the father had done, said there were none. Inayat persisted till at last his mother asked him : “Where?” “Over there,” he replied, pointing with his hand. His mother went, thinking to pacify the child, but to her great surprise found he was right, there were some sweets where he had said. On inquiry she learned what had occurred. “But,” said his father, “Inayat did not know, for he was fast asleep.”
