This was a custom piece. It depicts the story of Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (Persian philosopher d. 1111).

After his death, he was seen in a dream wherein he was asked, "What did God do with you? Which of your works allowed you to enter the Garden?"

Al-Ghazali replied, "None of them. Rather, I was writing one night when a fly landed on my pen. I decided it must be thirsty since there was moisture on the end of the quill. So I let it drink. By that, God forgave me."
