  • گردانیدن عمر نظر او را از مقام گریه که هستی است به مقام استغراق که نیستی است‌‌
  • How ‘Umar, may God be well-pleased with him, bade him (the harper) turn his gaze from the stage of weeping, which is (self-) existence, to the stage of absorption (in God).
  • پس عمر گفتش که این زاری تو ** هست هم آثار هشیاری تو
  • Then ‘Umar said to him, “This wailing of thine is also (one of) the marks of thy sobriety (self-consciousness).
