Question
Greetings Saeed,

Many thanks again for your superb recent help.

Please, how do you translate the word ‘what (= that which)’ in the following sentence?

"This world understands justice quite well. What (That which) it doesn't always understand is grace (فیض)."

Is it آن چه or آن که?

Best wishes, and many thanks,

Simon

Answer
Hi Simon,

It is آن چه or چیزی که
آن که is used for persons not things.

grace = لطف، مَرحِمَت

Best
