|"Praise be to God Who hath made being to come forth
from nothingness; graven upon the tablet of man the secrets of preexistence;
taught him from the mysteries of divine utterance that which he knew not;
made him a Luminous Book … and to speak forth from the apex of eternity
with a wondrous voice in the Excellent Temple: to the end that every
man may testify, in himself, by himself, in the station of the Manifestation
of his Lord, that verily there is no God save Him, and that every man may
thereby win his way to the summit of realities, until none shall contemplate
anything whatsoever but that he shall see God therein."
