There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge
ﻛﺎﻥ ﻟﺮﺟﻞ ﺃﺭﺑﻊ ﺃﺑﻨﺎﺀ ﺃﺭﺍﺩ ﺃﻥ ﻳﻌﻠﻤﻬﻢ ﺩﺭﺱ ﺭﺍﺋﻊ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺤﻴﺎﺓ ﺍﻻ ﻳﺤﻜﻤﻮﺍ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻻﻣﻮﺭ ﺑﺴﺮﻋﺔ ﻭ ﻻ ﺗﻜﻦ ﻧﻈﺮﺗﻬﻢ ﺳﻄﺤﻴﺔ

things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look
ﻟﺬﻟﻚ ﺃﺭﺳﻠﻬﻢ ﺍﻟﻰ ﻣﻜﺎﻥ ﺑﻌﻴﺪ ﺣﻴﺚ ﺗﻮﺟﺪ ﺷﺠﺮﺓ ﻛﺒﻴﺮﺓ ﻭ ﻃﻠﺐ ﻣﻦ ﻛﻞ ﻣﻨﻬﻢ ﺃﻥ ﻳﺼﻒ ﺍﻟﺸﺠﺮﺓ

at a pear tree that was a great distance away .
ﻓﺬﻫﺐ ﺍﻻﺑﻦ ﺍﻻﻛﺒﺮ ﻓﻰ ﻓﺼﻞ ﺍﻟﺸﺘﺎﺀ ﻭ ﺫﻫﺐ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻧﻰ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺮﺑﻴﻊ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻟﺚ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺼﻴﻒ ﻭ ﺍﻻﺻﻐﺮ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺨﺮﻳﻒ

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall .
ﻋﻨﺪﻣﺎ ﻋﺎﺩﻭﺍ ﻣﻦ ﺭﺣﻠﺘﻬﻢ ﺍﻟﺒﻌﻴﺪﺓ ﺟﻤﻌﻬﻢ ﻣﻌﺎ ﻭ ﻃﻠﺐ ﻣﻦ ﻛﻞ ﻣﻨﻬﻢ ﺍﻥ ﻳﺼﻒ ﻣﺎ ﺭﺃﻩ

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen .
ﻓﻘﺎﻝ ﺍﻻﻭﻝ ﺍﻥ ﺍﻟﺸﺠﺮﺓ ﻛﺎﻧﺖ ﻗﺒﻴﺤﺔ ﻭ ﺟﺎﻓﺔ ﺑﻴﻨﻤﺎ ﻗﺎﻝ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻧﻰ ﺃﻧﻬﺎ ﻛﺎﻧﺖ ﻣﻮﺭﻗﺔ ﻭ ﺧﻀﺮﺍﺀ

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted.
The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise .
ﻭ ﺗﻌﺠﺐ ﺍﻻﺑﻦ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻟﺚ ﻗﺎﺋﻼ ﺍﻧﻬﺎ ﻣﻐﻄﺎﺓ ﺑﻮﺭﻭﺩ ﺫﺍﺕ ﺭﺍﺋﺤﺔ ﺟﻤﻴﻠﺔ ﻭ ﺗﺒﺪﻭ ﻏﺎﻳﺔ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺮﻭﻋﺔ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺠﻤﺎﻝ

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen .
ﻭ ﺃﻧﻬﻰ ﺍﻻﺑﻦ ﺍﻻﺻﻐﺮ ﺍﻟﻜﻼﻡ ﻣﻌﻠﻘﺎ ﺍﻧﻬﺎ ﻛﺎﻧﺖ ﻣﻠﻴﺌﺔ ﺑﺎﻟﺜﻤﺎﺭ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺤﻴﺎﺓ

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment .
ﻓﺸﺮﺡ ﺍﻻﺏ ﻣﻔﺴﺮﺍ ﻛﻼﻣﻬﻢ ﺟﻤﻴﻌﺎ ﺍﻧﻪ ﺻﺤﻴﺢ ﻻﻥ ﻛﻞ ﻣﻨﻬﻢ ﺫﻫﺐ ﻓﻰ ﻣﻮﺳﻢ ﻣﺨﺘﻠﻒ

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life .
ﻟﺬﻟﻚ ﻻ ﻳﺠﺐ ﺍﻥ ﺗﺤﻜﻢ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺷﺠﺮﺓ ﺃﻭ ﺷﺨﺺ ﻓﻰ ﻣﻮﺳﻢ ﺍﻭ ﻣﻮﻗﻒ ﺑﻌﻴﻨﻪ

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up .
ﻟﺬﻟﻚ ﺍﺫﺍ ﺃﺳﺘﺴﻠﻤﺖ ﻓﻰ ﻭﻗﺖ ﺍﻟﺸﺘﺎﺀ ﻓﺴﺘﺨﺴﺮ ﻛﻞ ﺟﻤﺎﻝ ﺍﻟﺮﺑﻴﻊ
ﻭﺍﻻﺣﺴﺎﺱ ﺍﻟﺮﺍﺋﻊ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺼﻴﻒ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺤﻴﺎﺓ ﺍﻟﻤﺜﻤﺮﺓ ﺍﻟﺘﻰ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺨﺮﻳﻒ

If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring the beauty of your summer, the fulfillment of your fall
Moral lessons :
ﺍﻟﺤﻜﻤﺔ ﺍﻷﺳﺎﺳﻴﺔ

Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest .
ﻻ ﺗﺪﻉ ﺍﻻﻟﻢ ﺍﻟﺬﻯ ﻳﺤﺪﺙ ﻟﻚ ﻓﻰ ﻣﻮﺳﻢ ﻣﻌﻴﻦ ﻳﺠﻌﻠﻚ ﺗﺨﺴﺮ ﺍﻟﻔﺮﺡ ﻓﻰ ﺍﻻﺧﺮﻳﻦ

Don't judge life by one difficult season .
ﻻ ﺗﺤﻜﻢ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﺤﻴﺎﺓ ﻓﻰ ﻣﻮﻗﻒ ﺍﻭ ﻣﻈﻬﺮ ﻭﺍﺣﺪ
