In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
To everything there is a season, and a ‘time’ for every purpose under heaven! A time to be born and a time to die; a time to ‘plant’ and a time to pluck what is planted. A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to ‘break down’ and a time to ‘build up.’ A time to ‘cast away stones’ and a time to ‘gather stones together.’ A time to embrace and a time to ‘refrain’ from embracing. A time to ‘keep’ and a time to ‘throw away.’ A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to ‘keep quiet’ and a time to ‘talk.’ A time of love and a time of hate, a time of war and a time of peace! By time, verily Man is in a ‘state of loss’ — except such as have faith in ‘the mutual teaching of Truth!’
This, is the Book of the ‘Words of Righteousness’ which the ‘Mighty One’ has put in the mouth of men, that they may ‘converse’ with it from this time forward — as long as the world endures! It is the ‘gift of Allah’ and it shall be forever. Nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it!
O you ‘falsifiers of knowledge!’ From the ‘time’ it goes forth, it shall take you by day and night. Surely your turning things ‘up – side down’ shall be esteemed as the ‘potter’s clay.’ And He shall ‘break it’ as the breaking of the potter’s vessel, which is ‘smashed so ruthlessly’ that among its fragments, not a shard is found!
O you who believe! Because the words ‘they kept’ were not committed to the Book — ‘you’ are full of words that are not the Truth, and are ‘messengers of error!’ You neither realize your perdition, nor have you understood, that you ‘dwell in darkness’ and have gone ‘far astray’ because of this thing!
How long will you be oblivious? Speaking of things to come, as though they have already come. You don’t even notice ‘the moon’ — for you did not receive the doctrine! This, we left for a ‘sign,’ but will any take heed?
The ‘decrees’ of Allah, are unalterable! Therefore all things ‘shall be restored’ to their ‘proper order.’ The ‘time’ will come when every prophecy shall be fulfilled, and you shall know! For He has appointed a time for every matter. There is a ‘time appointed’ that all shall ‘come forth’ from the dead. And there comes forth a resurrection, even a ‘first resurrection’ — the ‘Resurrection of all the Prophets!’ …..
….. “Come — do receive Our words, ‘the unmanifested field,’ as the illuminated — ‘the manifested!’ Blessed are those who shall be saved through faith in this discourse. Therefore ‘listen’ and take it rightly to heart! The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of Allah, is at hand. Take heed what you hear, because ‘the harvest’ has come — John has been raised! Do you not see? Do you not hear? This is Our knowledge and all blessings go toward him who knows this — ‘the king!’ To him shall ‘the Victory’ be given as appointed. We are Witnesses! This is the Lord’s doing, and it is ‘marvelous’ in Our eyes!”
Recognize what is in ‘your sight’ — for nothing ‘covered’ will remain without being uncovered! Let him hear and see — who is to be Our leader. Let us have back ‘Our field.’ Let there be among you, a ‘man of understanding!’ This is he of whom Isaiah spoke. When the grain ‘ripened’ — he came ‘quickly’ with his ‘sickle in his hand’ and reaped it!
He believed in it, and when he worked it, he was saved! Because he prepared it for food — thus is it possible for you all to receive the Kingdom of Heaven! Do you not desire to be filled? Eat of the ‘good things’ that We have given you, so that We may be ‘free from blame’ in the sight of your Lord!
