|Rely on the witness of the phenomenal world|
To know whether you are on the mark or have gone astray:
|Neither kingship nor poverty for a Muslim who lacks in faith,|
The one who has it is a king even if he be poor.
|He depends on the sword if he lacks in faith:|
If he has faith he may need no weapons in the fight.
| A Muslim without faith yields to what his fate ordains;|
With faith, he is destiny incarnate.
|I revealed the secrets and rent the veil,|
But your blindness has no cure.
