أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

When Bayazid was coming from his bath one morning during the Eid festival, someone unwittingly emptied a tray of ashes from a window upon his head. With his face and turban al bespattered, he rubbed his hands in gratitude and said, “I am in truth worthy of the fires of hell. Why should I be angered by a few ashes?”

The great do not regard themselves: look not for the godliness in a self-conceited man. Eminence does not consist in outward show and vaunting words, not dignity in hateur and pretension.

On the Day of Judgement thous wilt see in Paradise him so sought truth and rejected vain pretension.

He who is headstrong and obdurate falleth headlong; if thou desire greatness, abandon pride.

[Bostan – Sa’adi]
