On the Frailty of Creatures and the Grandeur of God. (may his name be glorified!) گفتار در معنی فنای موجودات در معرض وجود باری

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

The pathway to wisdom is twist upon twist;
For the holy, the Maker alone can exist.
You can tell this to people who truths recognize;
But people of theory will criticize;
  ره عقل جز پیچ بر پیچ نیست
بر عارفان جز خدا هیچ نیست
توان گفتن این با حقایق شناس
ولی خرده گیرند اهل قیاس
Saying, “What is the sky and the earth, do you say?
Who are men? what are game and the wild beasts of prey”?
Oh intelligent man! Your inquiry is well;
If the answer is pleasing to you, I wall tell.  
که پس آسمان و زمین چیستند؟
بنی آدم و دام ودد کیستند؟
پسندیده پرسیدی ای هوشمند
بگویم گر آید جوابت پسند
The desert and ocean, the hills and the sky;
The fairies, mankind, fiends, and angels on high;
All things that exist, for this reason are less,
That only through Him they existence possess.  
نه هامون و دریا و کوه و فلک
پری و آدمیزاد و دیو و ملک
همه هرچه هستند ازان کمترند
که با هستیش نام هستی برند
The sea in a storm is sublime in your eye;
And lofty’s the vault. of the rotating sky.
But when will mere surface observers obtain
A glimpse of where spiritual persons remain?  
عظیم است پیش تو دریا به موج
بلندست خورشید تابان به اوج
ولی اهل صورت کجا پی برند
که ارباب معنی به ملکی درند  
For if it’s the sun, not a speck they descry;
If the whole seven seas, not a drop can they spy.
که گر آفتاب است یک ذره نیست
وگر هفت دریاست یک قطره نیست
When the Sultan of Glory His flag has unfurl’d,
Into Nullity’s collar collapses the world!
چو سلطان عزت علم بر کشد
جهان سر به جیب عدم درکشد
