bottom in manuscript:
جِرَا جرا این فزودن و کاستن نور قمر را است و ستارکان دیکر را نیست

میان مردمان نکرستن و ناستذنْ این مَعْنیها را خلافَسْت

در روشناای ستارکان که ایشانرا روشناای از خویستن است -
čerā čerā īn fuzūdan u kāstan-i nūr qamar-rā ast u sitāragān-i dīgar rā nēst

miyān-i mardumān nigaristan u nā-sitaḏan īn ma'nīhā-rā xalāfast

dar rōšanā'ī-yi sitāragān ki ēšān-rā rōšanā'ī az xwēštan ast- [
العربية:
لِماذا – لِماذا الزيادة والنُقصان في ضوء القمر ثابتة بينما لا يصحُّ هذا بِالنسبة لِلنُجوم الأُخرى؟

إنَّ مُراقبة الأفلاك وعدم إدراك المغزى من خلقها إنما هو إثمٌ عظيم،

إنما النُور المُنبعثُ من النُجوم صادرٌ عنها.
English: Why – why the increase and decrease of the light of the moon is settled while other stars don't behave so?

Observing these and not understanding the spirit of these is a misdeed,

that the light of the stars is of their own.
