Story ON BACKBITING AND ROBBERY حکایت غیبت و دزدی

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

A person remarked, and I thought it was good,
That better than backbiting, robbery stood.
کسی گفت و پنداشتم طیبت است
که دزدی بسامان تر از غیبت است
I replied, “Oh companion, with intellect crazed!
At hearing you talk, I am greatly amazed!
بدو گفتم ای یار آشفته هوش
شگفت آمد این داستانم به گوش
What good do you see in a criminal case,
That you higher than backbiting give it a place? “
به ناراستی در چه بینی بهی
که بر غیبتش مرتبت مینهی؟
“Very well!” he replied, “thieves show rashness, enough;
By the strength of their manhood their stomachs they stuff.
بلی گفت دزدان تهور کنند
به بازوی مردی شکم پر کنند
But not. so, the backbiting, meritless wight;
Who blackened his book and secured no delight! “
ز غیبت چه میخواهد آن ساده مرد
که دیوان سیه کرد و چیزی نخورد!
