Show loyalty first, then ask for favors
Explanation:
This is a translation of the meaning as I understand it. So many of these sayings in Persian do not have direct equivalents in English, but we can translate the meanings. I have seen books in Tehran with Persian-English proverbs, but I have not seen anything on the Internet.
