Details:  The Gulistan of Sa'di,
[A5] Paperback - 268 pages,
by Sa'di Shirazi.



Description :


This book has recorded, by way of abridgment, some rare events, stories, poetry and accounts about ancient kings, spending a portion of our precious life in the task. This was the reason for composing the book Gulistan; and help is from Allah.

 
The Gulistan, or ‘Rose Garden’, of Saadi of Shiraz is one of the best known and celebrated books written in the Persian language.


'Now, while thou hast the power of utterance,
Speak, O brother, with grace and kindness
Because tomorrow, when the messenger of death arrives,
Thou wilt of necessity restrain thy tongue.'


The author, having deliberated upon the arrangement of the book, and the adornment of the chapters, deemed it suitable to curtail the diction of this beautiful garden and luxuriant grove and to make it resemble paradise, which also has eight entrances. The abridgment was made to avoid tediousness.
