One is without reason.

Everything needs a reason,
but One never needs it.

Every number has a reason
to be the number
it is.

Except One.

Every number is in need
for the number One,
but One never needs One.

Two needs One
to be two.
Three needs One
to be three.
One hundred needs One
to be one hundred.
Or it will be ninety-nine.

But One is without reason.

And if there is no One,
there is Zero.
There is nothing.

But if there is One,
everything is going to be
from it.

(Mawlana Sheikh Mohammed Nazim Adil al-Haqqani al-Naqshbandi)
