  • از سوی معراج آمد مصطفی  ** بر بلالش حبذا لی حبذا 
  • On hearing this (ecstatic utterance) from Bilál, in whose speech there was no guile, the Siddíq (Abú Bakr) washed his hands of urging him to repent.
  • چونک صدیق از بلال دم‌درست  ** این شنید از توبه‌ی او دست شست 
  • How the Siddíq (Abú Bakr), may God be pleased with him, referred what had happened to Bilál, may God be pleased with him, and his maltreatment by the Jews and his crying “One!

  • جغدها بر باز استم می‌کنند  ** پر و بالش بی‌گناهی می‌کنند 
  • His only crime is this, that he is a falcon: after all, what is Joseph's crime except (that he had) beauty?
  • جرم او اینست کو بازست و بس  ** غیر خوبی جرم یوسف چیست پس 
  • The owl's origin and existence is (in) the wilderness; that is the cause of their Jewish (fanatical) anger against the falcon.
  • جغد را ویرانه باشد زاد و بود  ** هستشان بر باز زان زخم جهود 
  • (They say), ‘Why art thou (always) making mention of yonder land, or of the palace and wrist of the Emperor?
  • که چرا می یاد آری زان دیار  ** یا ز قصر و ساعد آن شهریار 
  • Thou art behaving impudently in the owls’ village, thou art introducing dissension and disturbance (amongst us). 960

  • عاشقی و توبه یا امکان صبر  ** این محالی باشد ای جان بس سطبر 
  • Repentance is a worm, while Love is like a dragon: repentance is an attribute of Man, while that (other) is an attribute of God. 970
  • توبه کردم و عشق هم‌چون اژدها  ** توبه وصف خلق و آن وصف خدا 
  • Love is (one) of the attributes of God who wants nothing: love for aught besides Him is unreal,
  • عشق ز اوصاف خدای بی‌نیاز  ** عاشقی بر غیر او باشد مجاز 
  • Because that (which is besides Him) is (but) a gilded beauty: its outside is (shining) light, (but) ’tis (like dark) smoke within.
  • زانک آن حسن زراندود آمدست  ** ظاهرش نور اندرون دود آمدست 
  • When the light goes and the smoke becomes visible, at that moment the unreal love is frozen up.
  • چون رود نور و شود پیدا دخان  ** بفسرد عشق مجازی آن زمان 
  • That beauty returns to its source; the body is left—foul-smelling, shameful, and ugly.
  • وا رود آن حسن سوی اصل خود  ** جسم ماند گنده و رسوا و بد 
  • The moonlight is returning to the moon: its reflexion goes off the black (dark) wall; 975
  • نور مه راجع شود هم سوی ماه  ** وا رود عکسش ز دیوار سیاه 
  • And then, (when) the water and clay (of the wall) are left without that ornament, the wall, (being) moonless, becomes (hideous) as a devil.
  • پس بماند آب و گل بی آن نگار  ** گردد آن دیوار بی مه دیووار 
  • When the gold flies from the surface of the base coin, that gold returns to its (original) mine and settles (there);
  • قلب را که زر ز روی او بجست  ** بازگشت آن زر بکان خود نشست 
  • Then the shamefully exposed copper is left (looking black) like smoke, and its lover is left looking blacker than it.
  • پس مس رسوا بماند دود وش  ** زو سیه‌روتر بماند عاشقش 
  • (But) the love of them that have (spiritual) insight is (fixed) on the gold-mine; necessarily it is (grows) greater every day,
  • عشق بینایان بود بر کان زر  ** لاجرم هر روز باشد بیشتر 
  • Because the mine hath no partner in aureity. Hail, O Gold-mine (of Reality), Thou concerning whom there is no doubt! 980
  • زانک کان را در زری نبود شریک  ** مرحبا ای کان زر لاشک فیک 
  • If any one let a base coin become a sharer with the Mine (in his affection), the gold goes back to the Mine (which is) beyond locality,
  • هر که قلبی را کند انباز کان  ** وا رود زر تا بکان لامکان 
  • (And then) the lover and his beloved are dead (left to die) in agony: the fish is left (writhing), the water is gone from the whirlpool.
  • عاشق و معشوق مرده ز اضطراب  ** مانده ماهی رفته زان گرداب آب 
  • The Divine Love is the Sun of perfection: the (Divine) Word is its light, the creatures are as shadows.
  • عشق ربانیست خورشید کمال  ** امر نور اوست خلقان چون ظلال 
  • When Mustafá (Mohammed) expanded with joy on (hearing) this story, his (the Siddíq's) desire to speak (of Bilál) increased also.
  • مصطفی زین قصه چون خوش برشکفت  ** رغبت افزون گشت او را هم بگفت 
  • Since he found a hearer like Mustafá, every hair of him became a separate tongue. 985
  • مستمع چون یافت هم‌چون مصطفی  ** هر سر مویش زبانی شد جدا
