O PEOPLE of the earth! To attain the ultimate retreat in God, the True One, are we to seek a Gate other than this exalted Being?...
When God created the Remembrance He presented
Him to the assemblage of all created beings upon the altar
of His Will. Thereupon the concourse of the angels bowed
low in adoration to God, the Peerless, the Incomparable;
while Satan waxed proud, refusing to submit to His
Remembrance; hence he is identified in the Book of God
as the arrogant one and the accursed.[cf.
