Ch 02 The Morals Of Dervishes Story 49

 Next Poem          

It is written on the tomb of Behram Gur:
‘A liberal hand is better than a strong arm.’
Hatim Tai has passed away but for ever
His high name will remain celebrated for beneficence.
Set aside the zekat from thy property because the exuberant vines
When pruned by the vintner will yield more grapes.
