  • موسی و هارون شوند اندر زمین ** مختلط خوش هم‌چو شیر و انگبین
  • And on the earth become (as) Moses and Aaron, sweetly mingled like milk and honey.
  • چون شناسد اندک و منکر شود ** منکری‌اش پرده‌ی ساتر شود
  • When it (my spirit) recognises (thy spirit) a little and (then) denies (it), its denial becomes a veil covering (the truth).
  • پس شناسایی بگردانید رو ** خشم کرد آن مه ز ناشکری او
  • Then knowledge averted its face (from the unbeliever): that Moon was angered by his ingratitude.
  • زین سبب جان نبی را جان بد ** ناشناسا گشت و پشت پای زد
  • Hence the evil spirit became unable to recognise the spirit of the Prophet and turned on its heel.
  • این همه خواندی فرو خوان لم یکن ** تا بدانی لج این گبر کهن 3835
  • You have read all this: read (the Súra beginning with the words) Lam yakun, that you may know the obstinacy of that old infidel.
  • پیش از آنک نقش احمد فر نمود ** نعت او هر گبر را تعویذ بود
  • Ere the (bodily) form of Ahmad (Mohammed) displayed its glory, the description of him (in the Pentateuch and the Gospel) was a phylactery for every infidel.
  • کین چنین کس هست تا آید پدید ** از خیال روش دلشان می‌طپید
  • “There is some one like this” (they said): “(let us wait) till he shall appear”; and their hearts were throbbing at the imagination of (seeing) his face.
  • سجده می‌کردند کای رب بشر ** در عیان آریش هر چه زودتر
  • They were prostrating themselves (in prayer), crying, “O Lord of mankind, wilt Thou bring him before our eyes as quickly as may be?”
  • تا به نام احمد از یستفتحون ** یاغیانشان می‌شدندی سرنگون
  • (This they did) in order that, by asking (God) to grant them victory in the name of Ahmad, their enemies might be overthrown.
  • هر کجا حرب مهولی آمدی ** غوثشان کراری احمد بدی 3840
  • Whenever a formidable war arose, Ahmad's pertinacity in onset was always their succour;
  • هر کجا بیماری مزمن بدی ** یاد اوشان داروی شافی شدی
  • Wherever there was a chronic sickness, mention (invocation) of him (Ahmad) was always their healing medicine.
  • نقش او می‌گشت اندر راهشان ** در دل و در گوش و در افواهشان
  • In (all) their way his form was coming into their hearts and into their ears and into their mouths.
  • نقش او را کی بیابد هر شعال ** بلک فرع نقش او یعنی خیال
  • How should every jackal perceive his (real) form? Nay, (they perceived only) the derivative of his form, that is to say, the imaginal idea (of it).
  • نقش او بر روی دیوار ار فتد ** از دل دیوار خون دل چکد
  • If his (real) form should fall on the face of a wall, heart's blood would trickle from the heart of the wall;
  • آنچنان فرخ بود نقشش برو ** که رهد در حال دیوار از دو رو 3845
  • And his form would be so auspicious for it (would bestow such blessing on it) that the wall would at once be saved from having a double face.
  • گشته با یک‌رویی اهل صفا ** آن دورویی عیب مر دیوار را
  • Beside the single-facedness (sincerity) of the pure (in spirit), that double-facedness has become a fault (even) in the wall.
  • این همه تعظیم و تفخیم و وداد ** چون بدیدندش به صورت برد باد
  • All this veneration and magnification and affection (which they had shown towards the Prophet) the wind swept away, as soon as they saw him in (bodily) form.
  • قلب آتش دید و در دم شد سیاه ** قلب را در قلب کی بودست راه
  • The false coin saw the fire and immediately became black: when has there (ever) been a way for the false coin (of hypocrisy) to enter the (pure) heart?
  • قلب می‌زد لاف اشواق محک ** تا مریدان را دراندازد به شک
  • The false coin was talking boastfully of its desire for the touchstone, that it might cast the (sincere) disciples into doubt.
  • افتد اندر دام مکرش ناکسی ** این گمان سر بر زند از هر خسی 3850
  • A worthless one falls into the snare of its deceit; (for) from every base fellow the thought pops up,
  • کین اگر نه نقد پاکیزه بدی ** کی به سنگ امتحان راغب شدی
  • That if this were not genuine coin, how should it have become eager for the touchstone?
  • او محک می‌خواهد اما آنچنان ** که نگردد قلبی او زان عیان
  • It desires the touchstone, but one of such a kind that its falseness will not be clearly exposed thereby.
  • آن محک که او نهان دارد صفت ** نی محک باشد نه نور معرفت
  • The touchstone that keeps hidden the quality (of that which is tested) is not a (true) touchstone, nor (is it) the (discriminating) light of knowledge.
  • آینه کو عیب رو دارد نهان ** از برای خاطر هر قلتبان
  • The mirror that keeps hidden the defects of the face to flatter every cuckold
  • آینه نبود منافق باشد او ** این چنین آیینه تا توانی مجو 3855
  • Is not a (true) mirror; it is hypocritical. Do not seek such a mirror so long as you can (help).
