Story of the blind old man’s reading

Story of the blind old man’s reading the Qur’án in front (of him) and regaining his sight when he read. قصه‌ی خواندن شیخ ضریر مصحف را در رو و بینا شدن وقت قرائت

دید در ایام آن شیخ فقیر مصحفی در خانه‌ی پیری ضریر
Once upon a time a dervish Shaykh saw a Qur’án in the house of a blind old man.
پیش او مهمان شد او وقت تموز هر دو زاهد جمع گشته چند روز
He became his guest in (the month) Tamúz: the two ascetics were together for several days.
گفت اینجا ای عجب مصحف چراست چونک نابیناست این درویش راست
He said (to himself), “Oh, I wonder what the Book is (here) for, as this righteous dervish is blind.”
اندرین اندیشه تشویشش فزود که جز او را نیست اینجا باش و بود
(Whilst he was occupied) in this reflection, his perplexity increased: (he said to himself), “No one lives here except him.
اوست تنها مصحفی آویخته من نیم گستاخ یا آمیخته
He is alone, (and yet) he has hung a Book (on the wall). I am not (so) unmannerly or muddled (in my wits)
تا بپرسم نه خمش صبری کنم تا به صبری بر مرادی بر زنم
As to ask (him the reason). Nay, hush! I will be patient, in order that by patience I may gain my object.”
صبر کرد و بود چندی در حرج کشف شد کالصبر مفتاح الفرج
He showed patience and was in a quandary for some time, (till at last) it (the secret) was disclosed, for patience is the key to joy (relief).
