THE EPIC OF KINGS OR SHAHNAME BY FERDOWSI (TRANSLATED BY HELEN ZIMMERN) شاهنامه فردوسی

...
And the wailing throughout the land because of
the death of Rustem was such as the world hath
not known the like. And Zal was crushed with
sorrow, and Rudabeh was distraught with grief.
And for many moons were no sounds save those
of wailing heard in the courts of Seistan. And
Rudabeh refused to take comfort, and she cried
without ceasing-
“He is gone before us, but we shall follow. Let
us rest our hopes in God.”
And she gave unto the poor of her treasures,
and daily she prayed unto Ormuzd, saying-
“O Thou who reignest above, to whom alone
pertaineth honour and glory, purify the soul of
Rustem from all sin, and grant that he rejoice in
the fruits that he hath sown on earth, and give
him a place beside Thee.”
And now may the blessing of God rest upon all
men. I have told unto them the Epic of Kings,
and the Epic of Kings is come to a close, and the
tale of their deeds is ended.


THE END
