  • گر بخواهی تو بیایی صد نظیر  ** لیک من پروا ندارم ای فقیر 
  • This Alif-Lám-Mím and Há-Mím—these Letters become, on (real) comprehension (of their meaning), like the rod of Moses.
  • این الم و حم این حروف  ** چون عصای موسی آمد در وقوف 
  • The (other) letters resemble these Letters outwardly but are subject (to them) in respect of the (sublime) attributes of the latter.

  • This Alif-Lám-Mím and Há-Mím, O father, have come from the presence of the Lord of Mankind. 1320
  • این الم است و حم ای پدر  ** آمدست از حضرت مولی البشر 
  • What resemblance has any (other) alif-lám to these? Do not regard them with this (external) eye, if you have a (rational) soul.
  • هر الف لامی چه می‌ماند بدین  ** گر تو جان داری بدین چشمش مبین 
  • Although they are composed of letters, O sire, and resemble the composition of (words used by) the common folk, (yet they are not the same).
  • گر چه ترکیبش حروفست ای همام  ** می‌بماند هم به ترکیب عوام 
  • Mohammed is composed of flesh and skin; (but he is unique) although every body is homogeneous with him in its composition.

  • Likewise, the composition of the (Letters) Há-Mím in the (Holy) Book is exceedingly lofty, while the others are low (in comparison),

  • Since the foolish took (only) the external appearances (into consideration), and (since) the subtleties (inward aspects) were very much hidden from them,
  • چونک ظاهرها گرفتند احمقان  ** وآن دقایق شد ازیشان بس نهان 
  • Necessarily they were debarred from (attaining to) the (real) object; for the subtlety escaped (them) on the occasion when it (the object) presented itself.
  • لاجرم محجوب گشتند از غرض  ** که دقیقه فوت شد در معترض 
  • Story of the maidservant who cum asino herae suae libidinem exercebat et eum tanquam caprum et ursam docuerat libidinem more humano exercere et veretro asini cucurbitam affigebat ne modum excederet.

The maid came back late and lamented, crying, “O my soul and O light of my eyes, veretrum vidisti, curcurbitam non vidisti; penem vidisti, illud alterum non vidisti.” (According to the Tradition) every deficient one is accursed, i.e. every deficient insight and understanding is accursed; for those deficient in respect of the outward eye are objects of (Divine) mercy and are not accursed. Recite (the Verse), It is no crime in the blind. (In their case) He (God) has removed the crime, He has removed the curse, and He has removed the reproach and the wrath. [Story of the maidservant who indulged (her) lust with (her) mistress’ ass; she had trained it like a goat or a bear to indulge in lust like a man. And she used to put a gourd on the ass’s penis so that it would not exceed the measure (of her vagina). Her mistress discovered it but did not perceive the device of the gourd; making a pretext, she sent the maid away to a distant place and she copulated with the ass without the gourd and perished shamefully. The maid came back late and lamented, crying, “O my soul and O light of my eyes, you saw the cock (but) you did not see the gourd; you saw the penis (but) you did not see that other thing.” (According to the Tradition)…]
