How the King (Mahmúd) once more commanded Ayáz

How the King (Mahmúd) once more commanded Ayáz, saying, “Give a clear explanation concerning thy rustic spoon and sheep skin jacket in order that thy fellow-servants may be admonished by that indication; for (the Prophet has said), ‘Religion consists in (giving) sincere counsel.’” فرمودن شاه به ایاز بار دگر کی شرح چارق و پوستین آشکارا بگو تا خواجه تاشانت از آن اشارت پند گیرد کی الدین النصیحة و موعظه یابند

سر چارق را بیان کن ای ایاز پیش چارق چیستت چندین نیاز
“O Ayáz, declare the mystery of the rustic shoon and why in the presence of the shoon thou showest all this humility,
تا بنوشد سنقر و بک یا رقت سر سر پوستین و چارقت
So that thy (fellow-servants) Sunqur and Bakyáruq may hear the inmost secret of thy sheepskin jacket and rustic shoon.
ای ایاز از تو غلامی نور یافت نورت از پستی سوی گردون شتافت
O Ayáz, slavery hath gained lustre from thee: thy lustre hath sped from lowliness towards heaven.
حسرت آزادگان شد بندگی بندگی را چون تو دادی زندگی
Servitude has become an object of regret to the free, since thou hast given life (and splendour) to servitude.
ممن آن باشد که اندر جزر و مد کافر از ایمان او حسرت خورد
The true believer is he by whose true belief amidst the ebb and flow (of fortune) the infidel is made regretful.”
