Sadi's Scroll of Wisdom, by Arthur N. Wollaston, [1906], at

p. 30


The Peace of God be upon him and his Posterity!
So long as the tongue is fixed in the mouth,
May the praise of Muhammad be a source of delight.
The beloved of God, the most exalted of Prophets,
Whose pillow is the glorious firmament.
The earth-conquering horseman with his chestnut Buraq, 1
Which passed beyond the palace of the cerulean portico!


30:1 The steed on which Muhammad is supposed to have visited Heaven.
