In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Consider this ‘Unfolding’ — as it comes down from on High! This is of the tidings of the Unseen, which We reveal to you! Of a surety, many believe it not, but of it’s occurrence there is no denial! ….. O John, We believe in that which you have revealed — not just he, with the interpreting cup in his hands. Gabriel! Make this man understand the vision!
O John, I am Gabriel, I stand before Allah and was sent to speak to you! I touched you. I was in the heavens, possessing the Wisdom of Him Who sent me! Well for you that you did not flinch at the sight of me. You have drunk from the bubbling spring which I measured out. Is it perhaps necessary again that we take the cup and drink? Do you not know that until now I am both here and there, with Him Who sent me? Without having flesh, I put on flesh, that I might regenerate you, who was begotten in the flesh!
I did not tell you then, for I knew that you should sin and transgress, and you have sinned! But little of Darkness now remains. Now I desire to tell you, since the Great Day of the Lord is near! When you did drink, Allah gave it to me in order that I should give it to one who, weeping, should desire a Book. That you may know the invisible things like the visible, and to instruct you. To you has fallen the good fortune to receive the Virgin of the Lord! Take her under your care, the Lord will watch over you. Do not fear, for you have found Grace before the Lord of all things, and shall conceive of His Word — for a Power of the Lord shall overshadow you!
Now is the time for refreshment and confidence’ in you! Hear and understand what I shall say Today, that you for your part may proclaim it, and will enlighten all that hope upon the Lord! Because you have drunk, it is given to you, to ‘know the secrets’ of the Kingdom of Heaven! Keep in mind what you hear! I know that you are listening and long to listen, that He Who sent me may be glorified by you. This Book is yours, ‘your Consort’ — to comfort you, and to strengthen you, and to rejoice with you — for so has it pleased Him Who sent me! And praised shall be the Virgin of Light — and blessed shall they be, who shall be saved through faith in this Word!
Your eyes shall be opened, knowing good from evil! You will see a Light brighter than light, and more perfect than perfection! See that Satan does not deceive you, nor work his purpose upon you, and upon the speakers and hearers of the renowned Word! For by the eye, ear and other senses — he creates corruption!
You have shattered the teeth of sinners, and it is great how you cause to hope, and how you speak! Serve in the straight, direct, and narrow way, and do not turn your face away from anyone — that they may confess and be judged with the work. I tell you this that they may hear! You have sought and found, have asked and received. You did not pursue unrighteousness! You it is will preach through Us, for you have given them the word without grudging and have warned them!
Whatsoever is fit to be revealed unto you shall be revealed! Only let your heart be with the Lord and doubt not. For it is founded by the word of the Almighty and Honorable Name. And is supported by the invisible power and virtue of Allah — that the name of Allah may be glorified. It has been and shall be revealed unto you for the sake of those who are doubtful, and think in their hearts whether these things are so or not. Tell them that all these things are true! And that there is nothing in them that is not true, but that all are firm and truly established!
Have confidence and be of good courage as you go! Preach and teach truly and rightly, fearing no one. Fulfill your offering, for indeed it is worth much, and there is no shortcoming in it. Place yourself at the head of your people — tend them and watch over them in the fear of Allah, and lead them in the good way. Make them understand they ought not to hearken to Satan, and nothing of them shall perish. Behold I have revealed unto you hidden mysteries, which Allah had revealed unto me. Peace be with you, and my Peace I give unto you! …..
….. The Prophet’s mind and heart in no way falsified that which it saw! Indeed, he saw him — the eye did not waver, nor did it go wrong. For truly he saw some of the most profound of his Sustainer’s Symbols! We are of the Light, heavenly, powerful, strong and glorious! Our world is one of Light, and Our condition is of the best — and be at peace and rest from this world and the misery of it. And Allah is there!
