Gulistan of Saadi

 The Manners of Kings

 Story 11

A dervish, whose prayers met with answers, made his appearance, and Hejaj Yusuf, calling him, said:
‘Utter a good prayer for me’, whereon the dervish exclaimed: ‘O God, take his life.’ He replied: ‘For
God’s sake, what prayer is this?’ The dervish rejoined: ‘It is a good prayer for thee and for all
Musalmans.’

O tyrant, who oppressest thy subjects,
How long wilt thou persevere in this?

Of what use is authority to thee?
To die is better for thee than to oppress men.
