[Sunlight] "It is God who purchases"



Every prophet has said in sincerity,
to his people, "I don't ask wages for my message.
I am only a guide. It is God who purchases:
God has appointed me to act
as broker on both sides."


Har nabi goft bâ qawm az safâ
man na-khvâham mozd-e payghâm az shomâ
Man dalilam Haqq shomâ-râ moshtari
dâd Haqq dalâliyam har do sari

-- Mathnawi II: 573-574
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Daylight"
Threshold Books, 1994
