The Súrah of the Arabs

 

This is the Súrah of the Arabs which has been revealed by One Who is the Revealer, the Ancient of Days

He is the Sanctified, the Transcendent, the Exalted, the Most Effulgent

These are the verses of God which have been sent down from the heaven of wondrous glory, and which God has made to be a proof and testament from Him unto the worlds. Within it are mentioned the servants of God who recognized God in His own Self, who were not shut out as by a veil on account of the outcry of the idolators, who entered the shelter of His loving providence and reposed in the precincts of His mercy which surpasses all contingent things – this, indeed, is a great bounty.

The Dove of Separation

 

Hearken to that which the Dove of separation doth recite unto thee upon His departing Iraq. This, verily, is of the Way of God decreed for His Messengers.

Be grieved not by this, but place thy trust in God, Who is thy Lord and the Lord of thy fathers before thee. Earthly dominion shall perish and all that thou dost behold must assuredly pass away, while the Cause shall remain in the grasp of God, the Lord of the worlds. Those who are enabled to see through the eyes of the spirit have no desire for that which hath been created aforetime and shall come to be heretofore; but rather, they behold the secrets of the Cause from behind great veils.

The Tablet of the Clouds

 

The Tablet of the Clouds, revealed by God, the Possessor of all men

In God’s Name, the Omniscient, the All-Wise

This is a missive from the All-Merciful to those who have turned toward Him Who is the Point of Adoration unto all in the heavens and on earth, that they may be gladdened by the verses of God, be attracted thereby unto the horizon of Revelation, and be drawn nigh to a station wherein all things proclaim that there is none other god but Me, the Almighty, the All-Knowing.

A Letter to a Believer

 

The Most Holy, the Transcendent, the Supreme

This is missive from Us unto him who attained to the light of the All-Merciful, after all that were heedless and doubtful had denied Him. Your name has been uttered before the throne, and that which elates the mind and causes the soul to take flight and soar has been sent down for your sake. He makes mention in His imprisonment of one who has turned toward Him, and verily His grace has embraced the entire creation.
