KANUNI(The Lawgiver) SULTAN SULEIMAN THE MAGNIFICENT 1494-1566

 

Halk içinde mu´teber bir nesne yok devlet gibi
Olmaya devlet cihânda bir nefes sihhat gibi.
There is no worthy thing like prosperity among the folk
There is no prosperity like a breath of health in the world



 

Ko bu ays u isreti çünkim fenâdur âkibet
Yâr-i baaki ister isen olmaya tâat gibi.
Leave this junket because its end is bad.
If you want an everlasting beloved, there is no other than worshipping.

 

Olsa kumlar sagisinca ömrüne hadd ü aded
Gelmeye bu sise-i çarh içre bir sâat gibi.
If you had days to live as many as sands
They wouldnt be even one hour in this bottle of heavens.

 

Saltanat didükleri ancak cihân gavgaasidur
Olmaya baht u saâdet âlem-i vahdet gibi.
The thing that they call sultanate is only fight for world.
There is no fortune and happiness like the universe of unity.



 

Ger huzûr itmek dilesen ey Muhibbî fârig ol
Var midur vahdet makaami gûse-i uzlet gibi.
If you want to be in peace Muhibbi, be away from everything.
Is there a place of unity like the place of loneliness?
