Muslim and Jew

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.

By Sa’di
