Story on concern for others حکایت نگرانی برای دیگران

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

The sighs of the people one night raised a fire ;
Half Baghdad, I have heard, was consumed in its ire.
A person gave thanks, midst the smoke and the dust,
Saying, “Harm has not come to my shop from the gust’
  شبی دود خلق آتشی برفروخت
شنیدم که بغداد نیمی بسوخت
یکی شکر گفت اندران خاک و دود
که دکان ما را گزندی نبود
A man of experience said: “Mine of disgrace !
In you, not a grief but for self, has a place.
That a town should be burned up by fire, you delight,
Although at the border there wanders a blight.”  
جهاندیده‌ای گفتش ای بوالهوس
تو را خود غم خویشتن بود و بس؟
پسندی که شهری بسوزد به نار
وگرچه سرایت بود بر کنار؟
Who his stomach would stuff but the heartless, alone,
When he sees others’ stomachs compressed with a stone?
Will the rich man himself eat that morsel, so sweet,
When he sees that the poor their own blood have to eat ?
بجز سنگدل ناکند معده تنگ
چو بیند کسان بر شکم بسته سنگ
توانگر خود آن لقمه چون می‌خورد
چو بیند که درویش خون می‌خورد؟  
Do not say that the sick nurse is hearty and whole :
For he twists like a patient, from anguish of soul.
مگو تندرست است رنجوردار
که می‌پیچد از غصه رنجوروار
When the friends of ” Kind Heart ” the wished resting- place find,
He sleeps not, for others are struggling behind.
تنکدل چو یاران به منزل رسند
نخسبد که واماندگان از پسند
The hearts of good kings become burdened, alas !
When they see in the quagmire the thorn-bearing ass.
دل پادشاهان شود بارکش
چو بینند در گل خر خارکش
If a man in Felicity’s mansion reside,
One letter from Sadi suffices to guide
اگر در سرای سعادت کس است
ز گفتار سعدیش حرفی بس است
It suffices for you, if observance you show
” You cannot reap jasmines if briars you sow.”
همینت بسنده‌ست اگر بشنوی
که گر خار کاری سمن ندروی
