  • A certain muezzin had a very harsh voice: he called (the Moslems to prayer) in the land of the infidels.
  • یک مذن داشت بس آواز بد  ** در میان کافرستان بانگ زد 
  • They said to him several times, “Do not give the call to prayer, for (otherwise) fighting and acts of hostility (against us) will be prolonged.”

  • Love of the Faith had grown up in her heart: this grief was like a censer and I like the aloes-wood (burning in it).
  • در دل او مهر ایمان رسته بود  ** هم‌چو مجمر بود این غم من چو عود 
  • I was in torment and anguish and continually on the rack lest her passion should lead her (to embrace Islam).
  • در عذاب و درد و اشکنجه بدم  ** که بجنبد سلسله‌ی او دم به دم 
  • I knew no remedy for it until this muezzin chanted the adhán (call to prayer).

  • هم‌چو آن زن کو جماع خر بدید  ** گفت آوه چیست این فحل فرید 
  • Si concubitus hoc est, hi asini (praemium) abstulerunt: cacant super vulvis nostris hi mariti.” [If sexual intercourse is (like) this, these asses have won (the prize): these husbands (just) defecate on our vulvas.”]
  • گر جماع اینست بردند این خران  ** بر کس ما می‌ریند این شوهران

  • کفر صرف اولین باری نماند  ** یا مسلمانی و یا بیمی نشاند 
  • This (description of the Faith of Báyazíd) is a (mere) makeshift varnishing: these similes are not equivalent to the mote of (Divine light). 3400
  • این به حیله آب و روغن کردنیست  ** این مثلها کفو ذره‌ی نور نیست 
  • A mote is only a paltry bodily thing: a mote is not the indivisible Sun.
  • ذره نبود جز حقیری منجسم  ** ذره نبود شارق لا ینقسم 
  • Know that (my) calling it (the Sun) a mote has a purpose hidden (from thee, for) thou art not familiar with the Sea: at present thou art (but) the foam.
