ALLAH, THE INCOMPARABLE
ALLAH, THE INCOMPARABLE
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O Mankind! Allah Alone created you and there is no god, except He! He's Incomprehensible, Ever-Living, comparable to None. Neither slumber nor fatigue overtakes Him, and to Him belongs everything in Heaven, and everything on Earth! He is the All-Knowing — He knows what is before you, and what is behind you, and you cannot grasp any of His Knowledge, except as He Wills! Allah is Most Merciful, the Giver of Peace, Holy, Powerful and Strong, the Most High — Far above what anyone associates with Him. He is the Creator, the Maker, the Best Planner, and He is Mighty, and Most Wise!
O Mankind! Do you think that you are of Allah's Image? Your thoughts that you possess are not right! Allah is not as Man, and has no human similitude! I am this Virgin Book, and have come to reveal to you, that which was from the beginning — before the distortions of Satan and his disciples, taught you this! Through their ambiguous utterances and absurd doctrines, they have led your minds into error through their Ignorance!
It is they, who say you were created in God's image, and established it as the first step in your knowledge of Allah! They think of themselves as gods, they attribute their faults and weaknesses to Him, since they do not recognize anyone existing above them. But there is Someone above them — Allah, the Almighty and Incomparable!
Consider! If He is powerless, who then is the Omnipotent? If He acts unjustly, who then is the Just? If He makes wickedness, who works what is Good? If He longs for sacrifices, offerings, and worldly things, who then is without Need? If He tires and rests, who then is it that neither slumber nor fatigue overtakes? If He is cruel, who then is Kind? If He loves war, who then creates Peace? If He can be bought or sold, who then is the Just Judge?
They say Allah has partners in His Kingdom; yet there is no god, except He! Or does He Lie? Who then is the Truthful? They say that He grieves; yet Allah Sees, and Foresees all things — their iniquities are not hid from Him! They say that He is a jealous God; but it is to Him, that all things belong! They say that He hardens hearts; yet He is the One Who softens hearts and makes Wise. He causes the Blind and Deaf to See and Hear!
The discourse of Fools is a sickness! Do not yield to it anymore — strip yourselves of these garments, and put on Heavenly garments! To whom shall Allah be likened? His Greatness cannot be grasped! He is Unalterable, Immutable — without a beginning and without an end. He is Inscrutable in His Wisdom, Incomprehensible in His Power, and Unfathomable in Grace, Mercy, and Justice!
Praise be to Allah, Who Sees, and Foresees all things — their iniquities were not hid from Him! They knew His Name, but did not speak it; hoping those who did not have it would not know what to do, or know where to turn. There were many earnestly seeking the Truth, who were misled on this account! Better is a man who hides his Foolishness, than a man who hides Wisdom. They exposed their foolishness, by hiding Allah's Wisdom and hiding His Treasure! Are you not better than They?
The Knowledge of Allah is Life-giving Instruction, for it Leads out of Darkness unto the Light! Allah Controls, and has Power over All Things! Allah Appointed this time, to extend His Mercy to all who Live! He has sent down Bread from Heaven — that man might not be fooled, and get full from the bread of man. John, by Allah's Will, has rescued me, that you may know as I know, that there is no god, except Allah! Before Christ came there was no Bread to nourish and sustain Man. Now I have come to reveal to you what is, and what was not! I've been rescued from the Spoilers, and now they shall be destroyed!
O Mankind! Do you see Satan's evil works? Guard yourselves from transgressing against Allah! The days of Man's life are few; but the Life of Allah is Eternal! Should He be like unto you? No! Open your eyes and know this within, then do as you see best! Eat of my Goods, and store up this Treasure. It shall deliver you from all Evil, and He shall heal you. Diligently seek after His Judgments with Intellect, for without Deceit shall His Law be fulfilled! I will give it freely to you. Trust me, and possess me. Hear and Understand, and I will enlighten you, whose hope is in the Lord!
