Perfection

Perfection-الكمال

1. Perfection is in three things: Patience in calamities, piety in pursuits and fulfilling the needs of the seeker.

1ـ اَلْكَمالُ في ثَلاث، اَلصَّبْرُ عَلَى النَّوائِبِ، والتَّوَرُّعُ فِي المَطالِبِ، وَإسْعافُ الطّالِبِ.

2. Perfection [of what is desired] is non-existent in this world.

2ـ اَلْكَمالُ فِي الدُّنيا مَفْقُودٌ.

3. You will never attain perfection until you rise above imperfection.

3ـ لَنْ تُدْرِكَ الكَمالَ حَتّى تَرْقى عَنِ النَّقْصِ.

4. From the perfection of a human being and the abundance of his merit is his own feeling of imperfection [in himself].

4ـ مِنْ كَمالِ الإنْسانِ ووُفُورِ فَضْلِهِ اِسْتِشْعارُهُ بِنَفْسِهِ النُّقْصانَ.
