  • این کشاکش چیست بر دست و تنم  ** خفته‌ام بگذار تا خوابی کنم 
  • What is this (painful sense of) having my hand and body pulled hither and thither? I am asleep, let me sleep awhile.”

  • قصه‌ی هلال کی بنده‌ی مخلص بود خدای را صاحب بصیرت بی‌تقلید پنهان شده در بندگی مخلوقان جهت مصلحت نه از عجز چنانک لقمان و یوسف از روی ظاهر و غیر ایشان بنده‌ی سایس بود امیری را و آن امیر مسلمان بود اما چشم بسته داند اعمی که مادری دارد لیک چونی بوهم در نارد اگر با این دانش تعظیم این مادر کند ممکن بود کی از عمی خلاص یابد کی اذا اراد الله به عبد خیرا فتح عینی قلبه لیبصره بهما الغیب این راه ز زندگی دل حاصل کن کین زندگی تن صفت حیوانست 
  • Story of Hilal, who was a devoted servant to God. (He was) possessed of spiritual insight and (in his religion) was not a mere imitator (of others). He had concealed himself in (the disguise of) being a slave to (God's) creatures, not from helplessness but for good reason, as Luqmán and Joseph and others (did, who were slaves) in appearance. He was a groom in the service of a certain Amír, and that Amír was a Moslem, but (spiritually) blind. “The blind man knows that he has a mother, but he cannot conceive what she is like.” If, having this knowledge, he show reverence towards his mother, it is possible that he may gain deliverance from blindness, for (the Prophet has said that) when God wills good unto a servant (of His) He opens the eyes of his heart, that He may let him see the Invisible (World) with them.

  • نه چو تو پس‌رو که هر دم پس‌تری  ** سوی سنگی می‌روی از گوهری

  • آن‌چنان کان خواجه را مهمان رسید  ** خواجه از ایام و سالش بر رسید 
  • ’Tis like the case of the guest who came to a certain Khwája: the Khwája inquired concerning his days and years.

  • He asked, “How many years hast thou lived, my lad? Say (it) out and don't hide (it) away but count up (correctly).”
  • گفت هجده هفده یا خود شانزده  ** یا که پانزده ای برادرخوانده 
  • He replied, “Eighteen, seventeen, or sixteen, or fifteen, O adoptive brother.”
  • گفت واپس واپس ای خیره سرت  ** باز می‌رو تا بکس مادرت 
  • “(Go) backward, backward,” said he, “O giddy-headed one”; “keep going back usque ad cunnum matris tuae!” [“(Go) backward, backward,” said he, “O giddy-headed one”; “keep going back until (you return to) your mother’s vagina!”]

  • دم این استور نفست شهوتست  ** زین سبب پس پس رود آن خودپرست 
  • The tail of this beast you are riding, (namely), your carnal soul, is lust; hence that self-worshipper goes back, back.
  • شهوت او را که دم آمد ز بن  ** ای مبدل شهوت عقبیش کن 
  • O changer, make its (carnal) lust, which is the tail, to be entirely lust for the world hereafter.
  • چون ببندی شهوتش را از رغیف  ** سر کند آن شهوت از عقل شریف 
  • When you bind its lust (and debar it) from the loaf, that lust puts forth its head from (is transformed into) noble reason.
  • هم‌چو شاخی که ببری از درخت  ** سر کند قوت ز شاخ نیک‌بخت 
  • As, when you lop off a (superfluous) branch from a tree, vigour is imparted to the well-conditioned branches.

  • Parable.
  • آن‌چنان که کاروانی می‌رسید  ** در دهی آمد دری را باز دید 
  • ’Tis like (the tale of) the caravaneers (who) arrived and entered a village and found a certain door open.

  • How this Hilál fell ill, and how his master was unaware of his being ill, because he despised him and did not recognise (his real worth); and how the heart of Mustafá (Mohammed), on whom be peace, came to know of his illness and his state (of weakness), and how the Prophet, on whom be peace, inquired after this Hilál and went to see him.
