SHAFAQNA- Everyone thinks himself perfect in intellect and his child in beauty.
A Jew was debating with a Muslim
Till I shook with laughter at their dispute.
The Muslim said in anger: ‘If this deed of mine
Is not correct, may God cause me to die a Jew.’
The Jew said: ‘I swear by the Pentateuch
That if my oath is false, I shall die a Muslim like thee’.
Should from the surface of the earth wisdom disappear
Still no one will acknowledge his own ignorance.
