Inscription: In Nastaliq, below painting: Portrait of Raja Man Singh
In Nastaliq, above poetry: God is greater [than anything else].
In Nastaliq, on verso: Today it became again evening in separation from you, and my life is finished in the longing for your face. The evening prayer came, but my beloved did not come. Oh eye, be wakeful, for sleep is prohibited. Oh master, take your place in the quarter of piety, in the street of Being-a-Lover you cannot retain your good name.
(Translated by Annemarie Schimmel, 1984)
