Materialism or Wealth has no permanence, it comes in the morning,
and at night it is scattered to the winds.

Physical beauty too has no importance,
for a rosy face is made pale by the scratch of a single thorn.

Noble birth also is of small account,
for many become fools of money and horses.

Many a nobleman’s son has disgraced his father by his wicked deeds.

Don’t court a person full of talent either,
even if he seems exquisite in that respect:

Take warning from the example of Iblis .

Iblis had knowledge, but since his love was not pure,
he saw in Adam nothing but a figure of clay.
