 The walking tour on monuments of Khiva.

“Accidentally confronting a Gentile, do not harm him.
God does not love people with a cruel heart.
Behind the coffin the punishment of the cruel awaits:
They will languish in the dungeon.
Such advice I heard from the wisest
Now I give it to you.
There is no former generosity among our people ...
Truths of shahs and sights erased the trail ...
God rejects dervish vow ..
For the people - a time of terrible misfortunes, o people!
Good manners left the people
Graceful girls shamelessness swept.
“Where shame is morality,” said the Prophet.
Unscrupulousness is the universal grave”

Ahmed Yassawi.
