better than we know them. They have committed
what hath torn the veil from such of Thy creatures
as are nigh unto Thee. I beseech Thee to assist them
to obtain that which hath escaped them in the days
of the Dawning-Place of Thy Revelation and the
Dayspring of Thine Inspiration. Potent art Thou
to do what pleaseth Thee, and in Thy grasp are the
reins of all that is in heaven and all that is on earth."
The voice and the lamentation of the true Faith have
been raised. It calleth aloud and saith: "O people!
By the righteousness of God! I have attained unto
Him Who hath manifested me and sent me down.
This is the Day whereon Sinai hath smiled at Him
Who conversed upon it, and Carmel at its Revealer,
and the Sadrah at Him Who taught it. Fear ye God,
and be not of them that have denied Him. Withhold
not yourselves from that which hath been revealed
through His grace. Seize ye the living waters of immortality
in the name of your Lord, the Lord of all
names, and drink ye in the remembrance of Him,
Who is the Mighty, the Peerless."
We have, under all circumstances, enjoined on men
what is right, and forbidden what is wrong. He Who
is the Lord of Being is witness that this Wronged One
hath besought from God for His creatures whatever
is conducive to unity and harmony, fellowship and
concord. By the righteousness of God! This Wronged
One is not capable of dissimulation. He, verily, hath
revealed that which He desired; He, truly, is the Lord
of strength, the Unrestrained.
