Gulistan of Saadi

The Morals of Dervishes

 Story 49

 

A sage having been asked whether liberality or bravery is better replied: ‘He who possesses liberality
needs no bravery.’

It is written on the tomb of Behram Gur:
‘A liberal hand is better than a strong arm.’

Hatim Tai has passed away but for ever
His high name will remain celebrated for beneficence.
Set aside the zekat from thy property because the exuberant vines
When pruned by the vintner will yield more grapes.
