  • Expounding the Tradition that Mustafá (Mohammed) said, the blessings of God be upon him: “When I am the protector of any one, ‘Alí too is his protector,” so that the Hypocrites asked sarcastically, “Was not he satisfied with the obedience and service rendered by us to himself that he bids us render the same service to a snivelling child?” etc.
  • در تفسیر این خبر کی مصطفی صلوات‌الله علیه فرمود من کنت مولاه فعلی مولاه تا منافقان طعنه زدند کی بس نبودش کی ما مطیعی و چاکری نمودیم او را چاکری کودکی خلم آلودمان هم می‌فرماید الی آخره

  • Every part (of them) impregnated by royal Spring, their bodies as caskets filled with pearly fruit;
  • جزو جزو آبستن از شاه بهار  ** جسمشان چون درج پر در ثمار

  • از شش و از پنج عارف گشت فرد  ** محترز گشتست زین شش پنج نرد
