In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Allah gives to whom He pleases without measure! This is an account of what is hidden, and it is in the Torah, and in the Gospel. Indeed you have argued about things of which you have ‘some knowledge’ — must you now argue about that of which you know nothing at all? Some of the People of the Book ‘wish’ to mislead you, and ‘knowingly’ hide the Truth, so they can abandon their Faith. Willingly or unwillingly, to Him they shall all return!
Follow the ‘Faith of Abraham!’ He was an ‘upright man’ and whoever enters it is safe! Abraham was indeed ‘a model’ — devoutly obedient to Allah, and true in Faith. O Abraham, Peace be on you. Come, give courage to the Believers! …..
“Am I awake or do I dream? What is this you have done? Bound to the ground, though you be above it! You will not receive adulation from me, but Truth! You are in error so much so, that many of blameless life have been deceived by Satan. I am one who testifies to that! Have you no sense? Would you exchange that which is ‘higher’ for that which is ‘lower?’ Have you then considered what you have been worshiping?
Rise up! Lift up your heads and turn up your eyes. The Lord looks from heaven. He it is, that made the earth ‘subservient’ to you! I would that you would hearken to my words. O that you would awake, arise from the dust, and shake off the awful chains by which you are bound. Have you taken security from Him Who is in Heaven, that He will not cause the earth to ‘swallow you?’
You must not be like the hypocrites, but rather reprove them! Let no man deceive you with ‘vain words’ — High is He above what they associate with Him. He ‘casts the wicked’ to the ground! Stand therefore ‘above all’ and Praise Him in the firmament of His Power. Anything more than this comes from evil!”
“My Sons, awake from a ‘deep sleep’ and hear the words of a ‘trembling parent! Lest for the hardness of your hearts, Allah should come out in the fullness of His Wrath upon you! Put on the ‘armor of righteousness’ — come forth out of obscurity, and ‘cast away’ all the ‘vain things’ you pursue. The Lord has covenanted ‘this land’ unto me! I have obtained a promise. Only do not rebel against the Lord, and do not fear the people of the Land!
For Allah, in Whom I trust said unto Me: “Your seed will be strangers in a land not theirs, and will be slaves there. They shall be oppressed for ‘four hundred years.’ That long will the Amorite contempt build. There shall ‘arise’ one mighty among them, with exceeding faith, and godless ordinances will he dissolve and oppressive fetters. Afterwards they shall come out with great substance, and worship Me in this place!” ….. Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom He shall bring, the ‘True Messiah!’ All things have been done in the Wisdom of Him Who knows all things, and the Messiah comes in ‘the fullness of time’ — according to the commandments which Allah has given!
Rebel no more against your brother, whose ‘views’ have been glorious, and who has been ‘an instrument’ in the Hands of Allah! Observe your duty to Allah with ‘right observance’ and let ‘nothing’ divide you! Allah has knowledge of your inmost thoughts! Muhammad is no more than an Apostle, and other Apostles have passed away before him. The term being ‘fixed’ as by writing! They are companions together, and my sons. He who turns back on his heels does no hurt to Allah, but Allah will reward the thankful. In Him let the Faithful put their trust!
If only the People of the Book had faith! Indeed this is from Allah, thus said the Lord unto me: “A ‘choice Seer’ will I raise up out of the fruit of your loins! To him I will give commandment that he shall do a work for the fruit of your loins — ‘his brethren’ which shall be of great worth to them! I will make him great in Mine eyes, for he shall do My Work. Not only to the bringing forth of My Word only, but to the convincing them of My Word which has already gone forth among them. And that which has been written by ‘the fruit of your loins’ — shall grow together unto the confounding of ‘false doctrines’ the ‘laying down of contentions’ and the establishing of peace, among the fruit of your loins. And it shall be as if the fruit of your loins had cried out from the dust, even after ‘many generations’ have gone by, even to ‘the simpleness’ of their words! Yet I will not loose his tongue that he shall speak much. For I will not make him mighty in speaking!” …..
O the Wisdom of Allah, and His Mercy and Grace! O how great the goodness of Allah, the Lord of Spirits! O how great the Plan of Allah! You shall discover ‘the malice’ of our scribes and doctors! Most of them are evildoers who would spare no pain to ruin you. Those to whom the Scriptures were given disagreed among themselves through jealousy! They have gone ‘far astray’ and never can find a way. What if the wrongdoers say: “You follow none but a man bewitched!” ….. this has happened many a time before. But if you persevere and keep from evil, their machinations will never harm you! Allah will make them regret ‘their words.’ Have faith, and you shall triumph!
Many large armies have fought by the side of their Prophet for the cause of Allah — ‘only’ after, Knowledge has been given them! And their saying was none other than: “Our Lord, forgive us our ‘sins and wasted efforts’ — make our ‘foothold sure’ and grant us ‘victory’ against the disbelievers!” ….. O you who believe! Your Lord is Merciful to you. Will you then turn back on your heels, after He brought you in sight of what you desire? Your Lord knows best what is in your hearts! This Qur’an ‘will’ guide men to that which is ‘most upright.’ Read it, lest you incur ‘disgrace and ruin!’
Your Lord gives abundantly to whom He pleases! Who taught you this? That which is the ‘subtle essence’ — shorn of falsehood and unswerving from ‘the Truth.’ Clear is his sight, and keen is his hearing! Had you looked upon them? He is ‘the Rightly Guided One.’ He had none to help him besides Allah. Allah has ‘power’ over all things, and Allah does not deal unjustly with anyone! Nothing can prevent men from having faith and seeking forgiveness of their Lord, now that ‘the Guidance’ has been revealed to them. This is decreed in the Eternal Book: “Mankind ‘shall stand’ before Allah!” ….. Let the wise bear this in mind!
O that ‘cunning plan’ of the Evil One, and ‘the frailties and the foolishness’ of men! They sought to lay a snare for him, they said: “Where is he who will grow up and be fruitful? Allah does not have foreknowledge, and it has not been made known to him!” ….. ‘Their wisdom’ is foolishness, and it profits them not! They shall be ‘thrust down’ to Hell! What do you think? Look! ‘This!’ — see how ‘fine’ it is? Does it not seem as though it was alive? Explain this! How is that, and why? Do you understand? He who would not believe this is ‘mad!’
This is my prayer formerly: “My Lord, make this a ‘region of security’ and bestow upon its People ‘fruits’ — such as believe in Allah and the Last Day. And raise up in their midst ‘a Messenger’ from among them, who shall recite unto them ‘Your Revelations’ and shall instruct them in Scripture and in Wisdom, and shall make them grow. Amen.” ….. This, my ‘excellent prayer’ has been fulfilled, as it is this day! Or has he not yet been enlightened, and ‘teach the Law’ in the Western Quarter? Come to this noble country, truly a land ‘flowing’ with milk and honey. And ‘know’ the Highest Wisdom!
