[Sunlight] "In spite of the skeptics"



God, in spite of the skeptics,
caused spiritual gardens with sweet flowers to grow
in the hearts of His friends.
Every rose that is sweet-scented within,
that rose is telling of the secrets of the Universal.
Their scent, to the confusion of the skeptics,
spreads around the world, rending the veil.

Kuri-ye ishân darun dustân
Haqq be-ruyânid bâgh o bustân
Har goli k-andar darun buyâ bud
ân gol az asrâr-e Koll guyâ bud
Bu-ye ishân raghm-e anaf-e monkerân
gerd-e `âlam mi ravad pardeh darân

-- Mathnawi I: 2021-2023
