يا مَعْشَرَ التُّجَّارِ إنَّ اللَّهَ باعِثُكُمْ يَوْمَ القِيامَةِ فُجَّاراً، إلاّ مَنْ صَدَقَ وَأدَّى الأمانَةَ

People! Do not attribute anything to me. I declared nothing as lawful or unlawful save what the Exalted God had ordered me.

أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اِتَّقُوْا اللَّهَ وَأَجْمِلُوْا فِي الطَّلَبِ؛ فَاِنَّ نَفْسَاً لَنْ تَمُوْتَ حَتَّى تَسْتَوْفِىَ رِزْقَهَا؛ وَاِنْ أَبْطَأَ عَنْهَا فَاتَّقُوْا اللَّهَ وَأَجْمِلُوْا فِي الطَّلَبِ.

People! Fear God and be moderate in seeking your sustenance, for no one dies before receiving his sustenance in full, though late. So, fear God and be moderate in seeking your sustenance.

People! Verily, I am a human being who will meet the messenger of my Lord in near future and follow his call (i.e. die). I leave with you two grand things: the Book of God and my Household. The former abounds in light and guidance. Whoever grasps at it and discerns it, will be guided aright and whoever falls short in that, will go astray. So, grasp at the Exalted God's Book and (try to) discern it. As to the latter, I remind you of God! I remind you of God!

أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ مَا جَاءَكُمْ عَنِّي يُوَافِقُ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ، فَأَنَا قُلْتُهُ؛ وَمَا جَاءَكُمْ يُخَالِفُ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ فَلَمْ أَقُلْهُ.

People! Your Lord is one and your father is one. You are all sons of Adam, and Adam was created from soil. The most pious among you is verily the most worthy of honor to God. No Arab is superior to a Persian, save for virtue.

لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ مَا ادُّخِرَ لَكُمْ مَا حَزِنْتُمْ عَلى مَا زُوِىَ عَنْكُمْ.

Poor people! If you knew about the saved things for you, you would not feel sad for what you lack now.

لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ مَا لَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ لَأحْبَبْتُمْ أنْ تَزْدَادُوْا فَاقَةً وَحَاجَةً.

Poor people! If you knew what you have with God, you would like to fall into more poverty and need.
