CERTAIN personage asked a devout man what he said of a particular Abid, of whose character others had spoken disrespectfully. He replied, "I see no fault in his exterior, and am ignorant of what is concealed within him. Whomsoever thou seest in a religious habit, consider as a pious and a good man, if you know not what is hidden in his mind: what business hath the Mohtesib with the inside of the house? 7 TALE II. T SAW a Durwaish, who, having placed his X forehead on the threshold of the temple of Mecca, was lamenting and saying: " O gracious and most merciful God, thou knowest what can proceed from the most unjust and ignorant of men, that is fit to be offered unto thee; I implore pardon for my imperfections, since I can have no claim of return for any performance of duty. The wicked repent of their sins: they who know God ask-forgiveness for the imperfectness of their worship. The Abid seeks reward for his obedience, and merchants require the value of their capital stock; but I, who am a servant, have brought hope, not obedience, and am come to beg, not to traffic.

It is not for a servant to direct: whatsoever thou commandest, I shall perform."

Sinossi: The Gulistan is among the most famous works of Persian literature by one of Persia's greatest poets, Muslih-uddin Sa'di Shirazi. Born in Shiraz sometime between 1184 and 1210 CE, Sa'di received his education in Baghdad and spent several decades in travel and pilgrimage. In 1256, Sa'di returned to Shiraz. He wrote the Gulistan in 1258, the same year that the Mongols sacked Baghdad. The Gulistan or Rose Garden of Sa'di, intended as a "mirror for princes," includes prose didactic tales interspersed with short verses. The book is divided into eight parts: The Manners of Kings, The Morals of Dervishes, The Excellence of Contentment, The Advantages of Silence, Love and Youth, Weakness and Old Age, The Effects of Education, and Rules for Conduct in Life. This classic translation by Edward Rehatsek has been edited and updated with a new introduction by David Rosenbaum.
