  • چون در افکندند یوسف را به چاه ** بانگ آمد سمع او را از اله
  • When they cast Joseph into the well, there came to his ear a cry from God-
  • که تو روزی شه شوی ای پهلوان ** تا بمالی این جفا در رویشان
  • “O paladin, one day thou wilt become king, so that thou mayst rub this wrong upon their faces.”
  • قایل این بانگ ناید در نظر ** لیک دل بشناخت قایل را ز اثر 2340
  • He who utters this cry is not visible, but the heart (of Joseph) recognized the Speaker from the effect (of the words.)
  • قوتی و راحتی و مسندی ** در میان جان فتادش زان ندا
  • From that (Divine) allocution a (great) strength and peace and support fell into the midst of his soul.
  • چاه شد بر وی بدان بانگ جلیل ** گلشن و بزمی چو آتش بر خلیل
  • Through that Majestical cry the well became to him a rose-garden and banquet, as the fire to Abraham.
  • هر جفا که بعد از آنش می‌رسید ** او بدان قوت بشادی می‌کشید
  • Bu means of that strength he cheerfully endured every affliction that came to him afterwards-
  • همچنانک ذوق آن بانگ الست ** در دل هر ممنی تا حشر هست
  • Even as the delicious savour of the cryAm not I (your Lord)? Subsists in the heart of every true believer till the Resurrection,
  • تا نباشد در بلاشان اعتراض ** نه ز امر و نهی حقشان انقباض 2345
  • So that they do not rebel in tribulation or shrink from (obeying) the commands and prohibitions of God.
  • لقمه‌ی حکمی که تلخی می‌نهد ** گلشکر آن را گوارش می‌دهد
  • The rose-conserve (of spiritual delight) digests the morsel, that is, the (Divine) decree, which bestows bitterness;
  • گلشکر آن را که نبود مستند ** لقمه را ز انکار او قی می‌کند
  • (But) he that does not rely upon the rose-conserve vomits the morsel in disgust.
  • هر که خوابی دید از روز الست ** مست باشد در ره طاعات مست
  • Any one who has dreamed of the Day of Alast is drunken in the path of devotional works, drunken:
  • می‌کشد چون اشتر مست این جوال ** بی فتور و بی گمان و بی ملال
  • Like a drunken (frenzied) camel, he is bearing this (heavy) sack without flagging and without questioning and without fatigue;
  • کفک تصدیقش بگرد پوز او ** شد گواه مستی و دلسوز او 2350
  • The froth round his muzzle, namely, his confession of faith, has become a witness to his (inward) intoxication and heart-burning.
  • اشتر از قوت چو شیر نر شده ** زیر ثقل بار اندک‌خور شده
  • Through the strength (bestowed on him) the camel becomes like a fierce lion; beneath the heavy burden he eats little (food).
  • ز آرزوی ناقه صد فاقه برو ** می‌نماید کوه پیشش تار مو
  • In (his) longing for the she-camel a hundred starvations (lie lightly) on him; the mountain seems to him (as) a strand of hair.
  • در الست آنکو چنین خوابی ندید ** اندرین دنیا نشد بنده و مرید
  • (But) he who has not dreamed such a dream in Alast does not become a servant and seeker (of God) in this world;
  • ور بشد اندر تردد صد دله ** یک زمان شکرستش و سالی گله
  • Or if he does become (such), (he is) always changing and shifting in vacillation: he gives thanks (to God) for one moment and utters complaints for a year.
  • پای پیش و پای پس در راه دین ** می‌نهد با صد تردد بی یقین 2355
  • He steps forward and backwards in the Way of the Religion with a hundred vacillations and without (any) certainty.
  • وام‌دار شرح اینم نک گرو ** ور شتابستت ز الم نشرح شنو
  • I am owing (you) the exposition of this. Lo, (you have received) the pledge; and if you are in haste, hear (the complete exposition) from (the Súra beginning with the words) Have not We opened….?
  • چون ندارد شرح این معنی کران ** خر به سوی مدعی گاو ران
  • Since the explanation of this subject has no end, proceed to (speak of) the litigant (who claimed redress on account) of the cow.
  • گفت کورم خواند زین جرم آن دغا ** بس بلیسانه قیاسست ای خدا
  • He (the man who killed the cow) said, “The impostor has called me blind because of (my having committed) this crime: O God, ‘tis a very Satanic inference (of his).
  • من دعا کورانه کی می‌کرده‌ام ** جز به خالق کدیه کی آورده‌ام
  • When have I been praying in the fashion of the blind? When have I begged of any one except the Creator?
  • کور از خلقان طمع دارد ز جهل ** من ز تو کز تست هر دشوار سهل 2360
  • The blind man in his ignorance hath hope of (Thy) creatures; (but) I (have hope) of Thee (alone), by whom every difficult thing is (made) easy.

  • I am blind to aught other than God, I am (made) seeing by Him: if this is be what Love demands, 'tis well.
  • تو که بینایی ز کورانم مدار ** دایرم برگرد لطفت ای مدار
  • Do not Thou (O God), who art seeing, deem me to be one of the blind: I am revolving round Thy grace, O Axis (of all).
  • آنچنانک یوسف صدیق را ** خواب بنمودی و گشتش متکا 2365
  • Just as Thou didst show a dream to the veracious Joseph, and it became a support to him,
