Muhammad Bákar*, the superintendent of the divine court, died. People talk something about Shikár Khán. One day, when riding, I heard people speaking more ill of him than of Muhammad Bákar. I often said that Muham­mad Bákar was notorious for a mischievous habit, while Shikár Khán, for pride. But it was no effect. It is right that men get rewards for their actions. The Khán knows better what happened to the deceased (i.e., Muhammad Bákar), and what will happen to himself. The evil passion does not allow man to do good acts and to store up provi­sion for the next life. Otherwise people would know that it is bad to practise oppression, but it is worse to encourage it*. To render services to the avaricious is to kill the poor. To be thoroughly conscious of the responsibility of the judg­ment of the next life which is doubted is a difficult task. What if a man is certain of the judgment of the next life? The Khán must be given his ‘jághir’, but not a post in the state. (Verse) “Alas! alas! the indifference towards justice.”

Gūlám Mūhi-ūd-Din opened a shop in the army of A’azam. He claims himself to be a ‘dervish’. It is neces­sary to dismiss him. (Couplet) “Such people (like Gūlám) are not men but only figure-heads. They fill their bellies and are men of passion”. They are ignorant and abject persons, of a defective temper and utter false words. Where is faith, and where is (true) Islám?
