- Thou hast succeeded to the throne, and didst not revile 'Ali, nor terrify
The innocent man, nor follow the counsel of the evil-doer;
Thou didst speak, and didst confirm what thou didst say by what
Thou didst do, and every Muslim became well content.
- translated by Edward. G. Browne, A Literary History of Persia, 1909, p.235
