How the prophets, on whom be peace, answered

How the prophets, on whom be peace, answered

How the prophets, on whom be peace, answered them again. باز جواب انبیا علیهم السلام ایشان را

انبیا گفتند نومیدی بدست فضل و رحمتهای باری بی‌حدست
The prophets said, “Despair is wicked: the grace and the mercies of the Creator are infinite.
از چنین محسن نشاید ناامید دست در فتراک این رحمت زنید
’Tis not proper to despair of such a Benefactor: cling to the saddle-strap of this Mercy.
ای بسا کارا که اول صعب گشت بعد از آن بگشاده شد سختی گذشت
Oh, many a plight became hard in the beginning, (but) afterwards it was relieved, and the hardship passed away.
بعد نومیدی بسی اومیدهاست از پس ظلمت بسی خورشیدهاست
After despair there are many hopes; after darkness there are many suns.
خود گرفتم که شما سنگین شدیت قفلها بر گوش و بر دل بر زدیت
I grant indeed that ye have become stony and have put locks upon your ears and hearts;
هیچ ما را با قبولی کار نیست کار ما تسلیم و فرمان کردنیست
(But) we have naught to do with any acceptance (on your part): our business is to resign ourselves (to God) and fulfil His command.
او بفرمودستمان این بندگی نیست ما را از خود این گویندگی
He hath commanded us (to perform) this service: we have not this office of proclaimer (prophetship) from ourselves.
جان برای امر او داریم ما گر به ریگی گوید او کاریم ما
We possess life (only) for the purpose of (executing) the command of God: if He bid us (sow) in a tract of sand, we sow.
غیر حق جان نبی را یار نیست با قبول و رد خلقش کار نیست
The prophet’s soul hath no friend except God: he hath naught to do with the acceptance or rejection of (his message by) the people.
مزد تبلیغ رسالاتش ازوست زشت و دشمن‌رو شدیم از بهر دوست
The reward for delivering His messages comes from Him (God): we have become hateful and wear the aspect of enemies (to the people) for the Beloved’s sake.
ما برین درگه ملولان نیستیم تا ز بعد راه هر جا بیستیم
At this (Divine) Portal we are not weary, so that we should halt everywhere because of the distance of the way.
دل فرو بسته و ملول آنکس بود کز فراق یار در محبس بود
Oppressed in heart and weary is that one (alone) who is in prison through being parted from the Friend.
دلبر و مطلوب با ما حاضرست در نثار رحمتش جان شاکرست
The Heart-ravisher and Desired One is present with us: amidst the largesse of His mercy our souls are giving thanks.
در دل ما لاله‌زار و گلشنیست پیری و پژمردگی را راه نیست
In our hearts is an anemone-field and rose-garden: there is no way (of entrance) for old age and decay;
دایما تر و جوانیم و لطیف تازه و شیرین و خندان و ظریف
We are ever fresh and young and gracious, unfaded and sweet and laughing and debonair.
پیش ما صد سال و یکساعت یکیست که دراز و کوته از ما منفکیست
To us a hundred years are the same as a single hour, for long and short (time) is a thing disjoined from us.
آن دراز و کوتهی در جسمهاست آن دراز و کوته اندر جان کجاست
That length and shortness is in bodies (alone): where is that long and short in the soul?
سیصد و نه سال آن اصحاب کهف پیششان یک روز بی اندوه و لهف
The three hundred and nine years of the Men of the Cave seemed to them one day (that passed) without grief and woe;
وانگهی بنمودشان یک روز هم که به تن باز آمد ارواح از عدم
And (only) then did it seem to them one day even, when their spirits came back from non-existence into their bodies.
چون نباشد روز و شب یا ماه و سال کی بود سیری و پیری و ملال
When there is no day and night and month and year, how should there be satiety and old age and weariness?
در گلستان عدم چون بی‌خودیست مستی از سغراق لطف ایزدیست
Since there is (for us) selflessness in the rose-garden of non-existence, there is (for us) intoxication caused by the goblet of Divine grace.
لم یذق لم یدر هر کس کو نخورد کی بوهم آرد جعل انفاس ورد
Any one that has not drunk (thereof is in the same case as those to whom the saying, ‘Whoso) has not tasted does not know’ (is applicable): how should the dung-beetle conceive the (fragrant) breaths of the rose?
نیست موهوم ار بدی موهوم آن همچو موهومان شدی معدوم آن
It is not conceivable: if it were conceivable, it would become non-existent, like (all) objects of conception.
دوزخ اندر وهم چون آرد بهشت هیچ تابد روی خوب از خوک زشت
How should Hell conceive Paradise? Does a beauteous face shine (forth) at all from an ugly pig?
هین گلوی خود مبر هان ای مهان این‌چنین لقمه رسیده تا دهان
Hark, do not cut your own throat! Take heed, O despicable one, (when) such a morsel as this has reached your mouth.
راههای صعب پایان برده‌ایم ره بر اهل خویش آسان کرده‌ایم
We have brought the hard ways to an end; we have made the way easy for our own people.”
