Part 38 - How the mouth remained awry of a man who pronounced the name of Mohammed, on whom be peace, derisively

 

 

812

  

He made his mouth wry and called (the name of) Mohammed in derision: his mouth remained awry.

813

 

He came back, saying, “Pardon me, O Mohammed, O thou to whom belong the (Divine) favours and knowledge (derived) immediately from God.

814

 

In my folly I was ridiculing thee, (but) I myself was related to ridicule and deserving it.”

815

 

When God wishes to rend the veil of any one (expose him to shame), He turns his inclination towards reviling holy men.

816

 

And if God wishes to hide the blame of any one, he (that person) does not breathe a word of blame against the blameworthy.

817

 

When God wishes to help us, He turns our inclination towards humble lament.

818

 

Oh, happy the eye that is weeping for His sake! Oh, fortunate the heart that is seared for His sake!

819

 

The end of every weeping is laughter at last; the man who foresees the end is a blessed servant (of God).

820

 

Wherever is flowing water, there is greenery: wherever are running tears, (the Divine) mercy is shown.

821

 

Be moaning and moist-eyed like the water-wheel, that green herbs may spring up from the courtyard of your soul.

822

 

If you desire tears, have mercy on one who sheds tears; if you desire mercy, show mercy to the weak.
