|The story of man is a witness to the truth:|
O wayfarer! The way of faqr is not difficult.
Steel that develops the character of silk
Ceases to be suitable for the sword.
When faqr is not self-reliant, it becomes God’s wrath,
When it is self-reliant, it is forerunner of kingship.
The Franks have made you forgetful of yourself,
Otherwise, O believer, you are a warner and bearer of tidings.
