  • As the gnostic, sitting quietly (in one place), travels by a hidden track through a hundred worlds.
  • آنچنان که عارف از راه نهان  ** خوش نشسته می‌رود در صد جهان 
  • If he has not been endowed with power to travel like this, (then) from whom are (derived) these reports concerning that (spiritual) country?
  • گر ندادستش چنین رفتار دست  ** این خبرها زان ولایت از کیست 
  • Hundreds of thousands of Pírs are agreed upon (the truth of) these reports and these veracious narratives.
  • این خبرها وین روایات محق  ** صد هزاران پیر بر وی متفق 
  • Amongst these sources (authorities) there is no dispute, such as there is in (the case of) knowledge based on opinions. 4135
  • یک خلافی نی میان این عیون  ** آنچنان که هست در علم ظنون 
  • That (knowledge based on opinion) is (like) searching (for the direction of the Ka‘ba) in the dark night, while this (mystic knowledge) is (like) the presence of the Ka‘ba and midday.
  • آن تحری آمد اندر لیل تار  ** وین حضور کعبه و وسط نهار 
  • Arise, O (thou who resemblest) Nimrod, and seek wings from (holy) personages: thou wilt not get any ladder from these vultures.
  • خیز ای نمرود پر جوی از کسان  ** نردبانی نایدت زین کرکسان 
  • The vulture is the particular (discursive) reason, O poor (-spirited) one: its wings are connected with the eating of carrion;
  • عقل جزوی کرکس آمد ای مقل  ** پر او با جیفه‌خواری متصل 
  • (But) the reason of the Abdál (exalted saints) is like the wings of Gabriel: it soars, mile by mile, up to the shade of the lote-tree (in Paradise).
  • عقل ابدالان چو پر جبرئیل  ** می‌پرد تا ظل سدره میل میل 
  • (It says), “I am a royal falcon, I am fair and auspicious, I have nothing to do with carrion: I am not a vulture. 4140
  • باز سلطانم گشم نیکوپیم  ** فارغ از مردارم و کرکس نیم 
  • Abandon the vulture, for I will be thy helper: a wing of mine is better for thee than a hundred vultures.”
  • ترک کرکس کن که من باشم کست  ** یک پر من بهتر از صد کرکست 
  • How long wilt thou gallop blindly? For (learning) a trade and business one needs a master.
  • چند بر عمیا دوانی اسپ را  ** باید استا پیشه را و کسپ را 
  • Do not disgrace thyself in the capital of China: seek a sage and do not separate thyself from him.
  • خویشتن رسوا مکن در شهر چین  ** عاقلی جو خویش از وی در مچین 
  • Hark, whatever the Plato of the age bids thee do, give up thy self-will and act in accordance with that (counsel).
  • آن چه گوید آن فلاطون زمان  ** هین هوا بگار و رو بر وفق آن 
  • All (who dwell) in China are saying in zeal for (the glory of) their King, “He begetteth not. 4145
  • جمله می‌گویند اندر چین به جد  ** بهر شاه خویشتن که لم یلد 
  • Never in sooth has our King begotten a child; nay, he has not allowed a woman to approach him.”
  • شاه ما خود هیچ فرزندی نزاد  ** بلک سوی خویش زن را ره نداد 
  • When any king says of him something of this sort, he weds his (traducer's) neck to the cutting scimitar.
  • هر که از شاهان ازین نوعش بگفت  ** گردنش با تیغ بران کرد جفت 
  • The King says (to such an one), “Since thou hast spoken these words, either prove that I have a wife and family—
  • شاه گوید چونک گفتی این مقال  ** یا بکن ثابت که دارم من عیال 
  • And if thou prove that I have a daughter, thou art safe from my keen sword—
  • مر مرا دختر اگر ثابت کنی  ** یافتی از تیغ تیزم آمنی 
  • Or else without any doubt I will cut thy throat: I will tear the mantle (thy body) off the Súfí, thy spirit. 4150
  • ورنه بی‌شک من ببرم حلق تو  ** ای بگفته لاف کذب آمیغ تو 
  • O thou that hast foolishly spoken an untruth, behold a moat full of severed heads!—
  • بنگر ای از جهل گفته ناحقی  ** پر ز سرهای بریده خندقی 
  • A moat filled from its bottom to its mouth with heads severed on account of this enormity.
  • خندقی از قعر خندق تا گلو  ** پر ز سرهای بریده زین غلو 
  • All have been sacrificed to this (false) assertion: they have beheaded themselves with this assertion.
  • جمله اندر کار این دعوی شدند  ** گردن خود را بدین دعوی زدند 
  • Beware! Regard this with a heedful eye: do not conceive or utter such an assertion!” 4155
  • هان ببین این را به چشم اعتبار  ** این چنین دعوی میندیش و میار 
  • (The two princes said), “Thou wilt make our lives bitter to us: who is inducing thee to (act like) this, O brother?

  • گر رود صد سال آنک آگاه نیست  ** بر عما آن از حساب راه نیست 
  • Do not go into battle unarmed, do not go recklessly into destruction.”

  • سینه پر آتش مرا چون منقل است  ** کشت کامل گشت وقت منجل است 
  • There was a (great) fortitude in my breast, (but) now it is no more: Love has set fire to the dwelling-place of fortitude.

  • My fortitude died on the night when Love was born: it has passed away—long live those who are present!
  • صبر من مرد آن شبی که عشق زاد  ** درگذشت او حاضران را عمر باد 
  • O thou that tellest (me) of (a stern) rebuke (from the King) and (terrible) punishments, I have passed beyond (all) that: do not beat a piece of cold iron!
  • ای محدث از خطاب و از خطوب  ** زان گذشتم آهن سردی مکوب 
  • I am (rushing) headlong: hey, let go my feet! Where in all my limbs is (any) understanding?
  • سرنگونم هی رها کن پای من  ** فهم کو در جمله‌ی اجزای من 
  • I am (like) a camel: I carry (my load) as long as I can, (but) when I fall down exhausted, I am glad to be killed. 4165
  • اشترم من تا توانم می‌کشم  ** چون فتادم زار با کشتن خوشم 
  • If there are a hundred moats full of severed heads, ’tis an absolute pleasantry in comparison with my anguish.
  • پر سر مقطوع اگر صد خندق است  ** پیش درد من مزاج مطلق است 
  • Nevermore in fear and dread will I beat such a drum of passion under a blanket.
  • من نخواهم زد دگر از خوف و بیم  ** این چنین طبل هوا زیر گلیم 
  • Now I will plant my banner in the open plain: (let my fate be) either to lose my head or (to behold) the face of my adored one!

  • حلق کو نبود سزای آن شراب  ** آن بریده به به شمشیر و ضراب 
  • The eye that is not (rejoiced) in abundance by union with her—such an eye is best white (with disease) and blind; 4170
  • دیده کو نبود ز وصلش در فره  ** آن چنان دیده سپید کور به 
  • The ear that is not worthy of (hearing) her secret—tear it off, for it is no good on the head;
  • گوش کان نبود سزای راز او  ** بر کنش که نبود آن بر سر نکو 
  • The hand in which there is not the (requisite) amount (to win her favour)—’tis best that it should be chopped off by the butcher's knife;
  • اندر آن دستی که نبود آن نصاب  ** آن شکسته به به ساطور قصاب 
  • The foot by whose faring the spirit is not led into her narcissus-plot—
  • آنچنان پایی که از رفتار او  ** جان نپیوندد به نرگس زار او 
  • Such a foot is best in iron (chains), for such a foot is ultimately (the cause of) headache (affliction).
  • آنچنان پا در حدید اولیترست  ** که آنچنان پا عاقبت درد سرست 
  • [Setting forth (the case of) the earnest seeker who does not refrain from exerting himself to the utmost, although he knows that the amplitude of God's bounty may cause the object of his desire to reach him from a different quarter and by means of work of a different kind which he has never imagined; but since all his thoughts and hopes are fixed on this particular method (of attaining his object), he continues to knock at this same door, (knowing that) maybe God most High will cause his appointed portion to reach him through some other door which he has not foreseen, ‘and will provide for him from a quarter on which he does not reckon’—‘Man proposes but God disposes.’ And, (again), a slave (of God) may conceive, as beseems a slave, that although he keeps knocking at this (particular) door he will be supplied from another door; and (nevertheless) God most High may cause his portion to reach him through this very door (at which he is knocking). In short, all these (doors) are the doors of one Palace. And the exposition thereof.]

  • It may be that (the fulfilment of) my desire depends on going abroad and that after I have gone abroad I shall attain (to it) at home.
