He is God, exalted is He, the Lord of loving-kindness
Glory be unto Thee, O my God, the
Lord Omnipotent. I testify to Thine omnipotence
and Thy might, Thy sovereignty and Thy
loving-kindness, Thy grace and Thy power, the
oneness of Thy Being and the unity of Thine Essence,
Thy sanctity and exaltation above the
world of being and all that is therein.
O my God! Thou seest me detached from all
save Thee, holding fast unto Thee and turning
unto the ocean of Thy bounty, to the heaven of
Thy favor, to the Daystar of Thy grace.
Lord! I bear witness that in Thy servant Thou
hast reposed Thy Trust, and that is the Spirit
whereunto Thou hast given life to the world.
I ask of Thee by the splendor of the Orb of Thy
Revelation, mercifully to accept from him that
which he hath achieved in Thy days. Grant then
that he may be invested with the glory of Thy
good-pleasure and adorned with Thine acceptance.
O my Lord! I myself and all created things bear
witness unto Thy might, and I pray Thee not to
turn away from Thyself this spirit that hath ascended
unto Thee, unto Thy heavenly place,
Thine exalted Paradise and Thy retreats of nearness,
O Thou who art the Lord of all men!
Grant, then, O my God, that Thy servant my
consort with Thy chosen ones, Thy saints and
Thy Messengers in heavenly places that the pen
cannot tell nor the tongue recount.
O My Lord, the poor one hath verily hastened
unto the Kingdom of Thy wealth, the stranger
unto his home within Thy precincts, he that is sore
athirst to the heavenly river of Thy bounty. Deprive
him not, O Lord, from his share of the banquet
of Thy grace and from the favor of Thy
bounty. Thou art in truth the Almighty, the Gracious,
O my God, Thy Trust hath been returned unto
Thee. It behooveth Thy grace and Thy bounty
that have compassed Thy dominions on earth
and in heaven, to vouchsafe unto Thy newly welcomed
one Thy gifts and Thy bestowals, and the
fruits of the tree of Thy grace! Powerful art Thou
to do as Thou willest, there is none other God but
Thee, the Gracious, the Most Bountiful, the
Compassionate, the Bestower, the Pardoner, the
Precious, the All-Knowing.
I testify, O my Lord, that Thou hast enjoined
upon men to honor their guest, and he that hath
ascended unto Thee hath verily reached Thee and
attained Thy Presence. Deal with him then according
to Thy grace and bounty! By Thy glory,
I know of a certainly that Thou wilt not withhold
Thyself from that which Thou hast commanded
Thy servants, nor wilt Thou deprive him that hath
clung to the cord of Thy bounty and hath ascended
to the Dayspring of Thy wealth.
There is none other God but Thee, the One,
the Single, the Powerful, the Omniscient, the
