On Charity And Gifts

 Next Poem          

Whatsoever thou hast, relinquish it for the sake of God; for charity is the greater marvel when it comes from beggars. Bestow thy life and soul, for the endeavour of the poor is the best gift of mortal clay; the prince and chief of the family of the cloak was honoured by the Sûra "Does there not come,"--such regard he found with God from those three poor barley-cakes.
