Israr Ahmed Lectures Dr. Farhat Hashmi Khatam e Nabuwat Lectures. Saadi in a Rose garden, from a Mughal manuscript of the Gulistan, ca. It is also one of his most popular books, and has proved deeply influential in the West as well as the East. The Gulistan is a collection of poems and stories, just as a rose-garden is a collection of roses.
It is widely quoted as a source of wisdom. The well-known aphorism still frequently repeated in the western world, about being sad because one has no shoes until one meets the man who has no feet "whereupon I thanked Providence for its bounty to myself" is from the Gulistan.

He has furnished the originals of a multitude of tales and proverbs which are current in our mouths, and attributed by us to recent writers. Friedrich Ochsenbach based a German translation on this. Adam Olearius made the first direct German translation. The Gulistan has been translated into many languages. If one member is afflicted with pain, Other members uneasy will remain.
