  • کان کسا از نور صبری یافتست  ** نور جان در تار و پودش تافتست 
  • Because that robe has become inured to the Light: the Light of the Spirit shines through its warp and woof.

  • Nothing will be a (safe) repository (for it) except a mantle like this: nothing else can endure Our Light.

  • که نگنجیدم در افلاک و خلا  ** در عقول و در نفوس با علا 
  • “I am not contained in the heavens or in the void or in the exalted intelligences and souls;
  • در دل ممن بگنجیدم چو ضیف  ** بی ز چون و بی چگونه بی ز کیف 
  • (But) I am contained, as a guest, in the true believer's heart, without qualification or definition or description,

  • حاصل این کزلبس خویشش پرده ساخت  ** که نفوذ آن قمر را می‌شناخت 
  • The gist (of the discourse) is this, that he (Moses) made a veil of his raiment, since he knew the penetrativeness of (the light of) that Moon.
  • گر بدی پرده ز غیر لبس او  ** پاره گشتی گر بدی کوه دوتو 
  • Had the veil been (made) of anything except his raiment, it would have been torn to shreds, (even) if it had been (like) a solid mountain.
  • ز آهنین دیوارها نافذ شدی  ** توبره با نور حق چه فن زدی  3080

  • هم‌چنان مرد مجاهد نان دهد  ** چون برو زد نور طاعت جان دهد

  • Hark, open a window towards Joseph and begin to delight yourself by looking at him through the aperture.
  • عشق‌ورزی آن دریچه کردنست  ** کز جمال دوست سینه روشنست 
  • The business of love is to make that window (in the heart), for the breast is illumined by the beauty of the Beloved.
