  2. his pure ancestors. The slave of our master, the blessings of God be upon him, reports to

  3. the pure presence that he is enduring detention in the arsenal and that

  4. he has received due punishment. He requests a kindness and benefaction

  5. to be done to him by being charitable, in consideration of this, to his family, his children and his

  6. crippled mother, who have stood ransom for him. To our master, the blessings of God be upon him, belongs the exalted opinion regarding that, if God wills.

  7. Praise be to God alone and his blessings be upon our lord Muḥammad, his prophet, and his pure family and save them.
