O MUHAMMAD Husayn! Be thou prepared to receive the
outpourings of the loving-kindness of God, the Lord of the
worlds. The All-Merciful hath deigned to bestow upon
thee pearls of knowledge from the Ocean of the grace of
God, the Almighty, the Most Exalted.
Where is the man of insight who will recognize and
perceive the truth? Where is to be found the man of hearing
who will hearken unto My wondrous Voice calling from
the realm of glory? Where is the soul who will set his face
towards the Divine Lote-Tree in such wise that neither the
overpowering might of the kings, nor the violent commotions
of their subjects may frustrate him, lifting up his
voice amidst the entire creation through the power of
wisdom and utterance and testifying unto that whereunto
hath testified God, that verily no God is there besides Him,
the Powerful, the Invincible, the Omnipotent, the Knowing,
O Husayn! Thy name hath been mentioned in the Most
Great Prison before this Wronged One and We have
revealed for thee that with which none of the books of
the world can compare. Unto this beareth witness the King
of eternity; yet the generality of mankind are numbered
among the heedless. From the dawning-place of testimony
We have raised the Call unto all that dwell in the realm of
creation. Amongst men there are those who have been
carried away by the fragrance of the utterance of their Lord
in such manner that they have forsaken everything which
pertaineth unto men in their eagerness to attain the court of
the presence of God, the Lord of the mighty throne. There
are also those who are sore perplexed and wavering. Others
have made haste, winged their way to answer the Call of
their Lord, the Ancient of Days. Still others have turned
aside, rejected the truth and eventually disbelieved in God,
the Almighty, the All-Praised. And there are yet others
who have pronounced judgement against Him with such
cruelty that every wise and discerning soul hath been
moved to lament. We have graciously summoned them
unto the river that is life indeed, while they have, with
manifest injustice, decreed the shedding of My blood. Thus
hath the Day-Star of wisdom shone forth from above the
horizon of the utterance of thy Lord, the All-Merciful.
Shouldst thou attain unto its light, it behoveth thee to
magnify the praise of thy Lord and say, I yield Thee thanks,
O God of the worlds.
Blessed art thou and are they whom the world and its
vanities have failed to deter from this luminous Horizon.
Convey greetings on My behalf unto My loved ones.
We exhort them to observe wisdom as decreed in My
