Story of the blind old man's reading the Qur’án in front (of him) and regaining his sight when he read.
1835. Once upon a time a dervish Shaykh saw a Qur’án in the house of a blind old man. He became his guest in (the month) Tamúz: the two ascetics were together for several days. He said (to himself), “Oh, I wonder what the Book is (here) for, as this righteous dervish is blind.”
(Whilst he was occupied) in this reflection, his perplexity increased: (he said to himself), “No one lives here except him.
He is alone, (and yet) he has hung a Book (on the wall). I am not (so) unmannerly or muddled
(in my wits)
1840. As to ask (him the reason). Nay, hush! I will be patient, in order that by patience I may gain my object.”
He showed patience and was in a quandary for some time, (till at last) it (the secret) was disclosed, for patience is the key to joy (relief).
