Prologue
 
In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful
 In the name of Him Who created and sustains the world, the Sage Whoendowed tongue with speech.He attains no honor who turns the face from the doer of His mercy.The kings of the earth prostate themselves before Him in supplication.He seizes not in haste the disobedient, nor drives away the penitent withviolence. The two worlds are as a drop of water in the ocean of His knowledge.He withholds not His bounty though His servants sin; upon the surface of theearth has He spread a feast, in which both friend and for may share.Peerless He is, and His kingdom is eternal. Upon the head of one He placeth acrown another he hurleth from the throne to the ground.The fire of His friend He turneth into a flower garden; through the water of the Nile He sendeth His foes to perdition.Behind the veil He seeth all, and concealeth our faults with His own goodness.He is near to them that are downcast, and accepteth the prayers of them thatlament.He knoweth of the things that exist not, of secrets that are untold.He causeth the moon and the sun to revolve, and spreadeth water upon theearth.In the heart of a stone hath He placed a jewel; from nothing hath He created allthat is.Who can reveal the secret of His qualities; what eye can see the limits of His beauty?The bird of thought cannot soar to the height of His presence, nor the hand of understanding reach to the skirt of His praise.Think not, O Saadi, that one can walk in the road of purity except in thefootsteps of Mohammed.
