  • Such hearts as had egoism were described (in the words of the Qur’án) nay, harder (than stone).
  • آنچنان دلها که بدشان ما و من  ** نعتشان شدت بل اشد قسوة 
  • Explaining that the bounty of God and of the (Divine) Omnipotence is not dependent on receptivity, as human bounty is; for in the latter case receptivity is necessary. (In the former case it is not) because (the Divine) bounty is eternal, whereas receptivity is temporal. Bounty is an attribute of the Creator, while receptivity is an attribute of the creature; and the eternal cannot depend on the temporal, otherwise temporality (origination in time) would be absurd.
  • بیان آنک عطای حق و قدرت موقوف قابلیت نیست هم‌چون داد خلقان کی آن را قابلیت باید زیرا عطا قدیم است و قابلیت حادث عطا صفت حق است و قابلیت صفت مخلوق و قدیم موقوف حادث نباشد و اگر نه حدوث محال باشد 
  • The remedy for such a heart is the gift bestowed by a Transmuter: receptivity is not a necessary condition for His bounty.
  • چاره‌ی آن دل عطای مبدلیست  ** داد او را قابلیت شرط نیست 
  • Nay, His bounty is the necessary condition for receptivity: Bounty is the kernel, and receptivity the husk.
  • بلک شرط قابلیت داد اوست  ** داد لب و قابلیت هست پوست 
  • The change of Moses' rod into a serpent and the shining of his hand like a (resplendent) sun,
  • اینک موسی را عصا ثعبان شود  ** هم‌چو خورشیدی کفش رخشان شود
