  1. re: Hidden Words Arabic No. 63 
"Túr" and "Sinai" should not be taken literally; the first is an allusion to Mount Sinai, which in this case means the Manifestation of God; the second, “Sinai”, represents the human heart. 
(From a postscript in the handwriting of Shoghi Effendi to a letter dated 3 May 1947 written on his behalf to an individual believer) 

  2. [note: This statement referred to an early translation. The word “Túr” was later translated by the Guardian as “sacred Mount” ]
