In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Listen — ‘you’ who form one vast congregation, and follows this ‘middle path!’ Why have you made me your mark? I have been ‘pointed out’ as the foremost of those who ‘dwell in virtue’ and yet I do not think in this wise! There is only One God, Allah, but tell me, what means the message of these words? “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah!” ….. I have heard this, ‘your doctrine’ — “It is sealed!” ….. but I hold that it cannot be final!
Think! Why is it just this, my name? You must ask! ‘Distinction’ is still perceived, and there is no ‘real abandonment’ of egoism. I bear no such witness, and this is indeed an ‘unfair distinction!’ There is no God, except Allah! This is sufficient for man’s salvation, and this has He caused ‘all’ the Prophets to say. Did you think perchance that Allah sent me to destroy the Law and the Prophets? For they all consider John a Prophet. What? Do you think I will not? And how should I ‘not’ have told you? Be not deceived!
Verily, I say unto you: “The scribes and doctors have made void the Law of Allah with their false prophecies!” ..… Contrary to the prophecies of the True Prophets of Allah — they follow nothing but conjecture and what their ‘own souls’ desire. But ‘after me’ shall come ‘the Splendor’ of all the Prophets and Holy ones, and shall spread ‘Light’ upon the Darkness of all that the Prophets have said. Hear it and know it for your good!
Let all ‘my household’ come together, that I may tell them everything — as much as is according to the Lord’s will! I have been let come to you Today, and announce to you of a man ‘made big’ for you. You hear the words of ‘my lips’ as I heard the words of the Lord! It is ‘most true’ as Allah lives, Who seeks to hinder ‘all evil.’ And whoever seeks to ‘hinder him’ — he seeks the devil! For this is from the Lord’s lips, it is let out ‘in measure’ and does not exhaust ‘the Treasure houses.’ Let it be heard everywhere — my vindication is at stake!
All this He measured, and thus do I make known to you: “There is no oath in me!” ….. Deceive not yourselves, for there has been ‘previously prepared’ a place for every soul of man! But Allah ‘does support me’ and has suffered me that I should speak unto you. See the moon? The Day of ‘my term and the time’ has approached! It is my time to depart, and this child who is now born, he that knows the mystery ‘hard to attain’ — he shall shine forth as a ‘sun of Knowledge’ to destroy the ‘darkness of illusion’ in this world!
Bursting forth with the ‘water of Wisdom’ — he shall ‘break open’ for the escape of living beings, that door whose ‘bolt’ is desire, and whose ‘two leaves’ are ignorance and delusion! Follow him that you may be ‘rightly guided’ and you will not remain subject to others. He is ‘wise in heart’ and they ‘know not!’ Listen all of you for your own happiness, with your mind free of stain!
What! Do you think he would say what is untrue? Why? That his selfhood would be large? Selfhood indeed! I swear to you: “W’allah!” ….. He has not directed his words against me, and no fear of me need terrify you! You say: “He finds occasion against me, and he counts me as the enemy.” ….. In this you are not right! Why do you contend against him? Don’t you know that the Messiah ‘must come?’ Know therefore, in the Faith of the Messiah, shall be saved everyone who is ‘elect of Allah!’ By His will, I tell you: “This is he!”
Believe it! He has reached the ‘furthest limit’ of instruction, and he is ‘the guide’ to all the Law — the Teacher, the great Seer — he that is possessed with all ‘distinctive marks’ and adorned with all signs! Since I have been glorified in this manner before ‘this time’ — listen to me, the ‘Unlettered Prophet’ who believes in Allah and His Word! Surely Allah’s Anointed is before Him! Look now, for indeed he is a holy one of Allah. Look not upon his countenance nor the height of his stature — for Allah sees not as man sees. For man looks to the outward appearance, but the Lord looks to the heart! What do you behold? Verily, he has knowledge of what is hidden and what is manifest. For the eyes see His Works, and the ears hear His Thoughts! If you will not harden your hearts, surely these things shall be made known to you. Give no heed to the disbelievers; they desire you to overlook ‘their doings’ that they may compromise!
In what has ‘the Messenger’ done amiss? It is ‘all one!’ What is it he declares? Did I not bid you ‘praise Allah?’ What is it he attempts at dissolving? I, say unto you: “I regard not myself, believe in Allah!” ….. Do you know ‘the meaning of the Book’ according to the Truth, which is in Allah? How is it that you don’t keep the Commandments of the Lord? Take a Book in your hand and write what the Lord says! Can ‘they’ write it down? Consider! How is it written such as no man on earth wrought before or ever will work? May you ‘receive his doctrine’ for Truth. I will receive ‘his doctrine’ and ‘my lot’ with him, and be of good cheer that we should come to trial together!
Which of you desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost — whether or not he has enough to complete it? Otherwise when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish it, all that see him mock him saying: “This man began to build, and was unable to finish!” ….. I, a just man, am a ‘laughingstock.’ For I am revealed to you building a house that is very valuable to you, in order that you may be saved! Although it has been in ‘the process of construction’ from that time until now — it has not reached its completion!
The ‘tents of robbers’ are at peace, those who provoke Allah are secure, and ‘no part of Mankind’ is left in our subjection, but on the other hand — they all ‘boldly defy us’ nor is there a tear in any of their faces! Behold, these nations ‘reputed as nothing’ domineer over us and devour us. How long is this to be so, and why have you not considered in your mind what is to come? Where is your ‘victory?’ Where is ‘your sting?’ Is the ‘chief prize’ of my Family secure? There ‘must’ be more than this! If you will not believe, surely you will not be established! How can you have ‘patience’ in that in which ‘your understanding’ is not complete? Let it be roofed!
Know that these things must surely come — ‘Allah’s Help’ and ‘Allah’s Victory!’ Prepare for battle and you will see it, for behold your brother ‘has come’ — my brother, the king! To him give all the Prophets witness! For they ‘declared’ that Our government would never be established, until this was accomplished — A Messenger from Allah, rehearsing Scriptures kept ‘pure and holy’ wherein are laws ‘right and straight!’ Associate yourselves, O you People! For Allah is ‘with Us.’ Allah watches over all His Servants! Look before you and consider what you see. We are all in this ‘without doubt’ — being ‘the first’ of those who submit!
But now why are you disturbed? I trust that you are not in a state of such unbelief as were your brethren! When I was with them in the world, I said: “O my People, for ‘twenty-three years’ the Word of the Lord has come to me, and I have delivered it to you early and late, but you did not listen! Listen to me today, for the angels which shall go with me are standing before me, and ‘urge me’ to my departure from you. Now that all the Prophets have come except the Messenger of Allah who shall come after me, turn I pray you, each from his evil doings, in order that you shall receive who should come into the world many years hence! Have fear of Allah, and do not shame me, for you shall become unclean and you shall suffer great miseries. Therefore I bid you, ‘do’ before the Lord’s face, all His good pleasure!”
“O my disciples, as for you, ‘prophesy’ all these words to them which shall come to worship in the Lord’s House, and all the words that I demand you to speak unto them, keep not back one word! Perhaps they may listen to this word which I speak in your hearing. Prepare the way for the Messenger of the Lord, of whom Moses in the Law and the Prophets did write. Who, coming after me, is ‘preferred before me!’ His name shall be called ‘after’ me, and it shall be after the name of his father! He will not come in your time, but will come ‘some years’ after you, from afar — to give the Law to the descendants of Jacob, that they might be brought to a knowledge of that which is ‘Just and True.’ For so Allah ‘wills’ — that He may show forth His Power to the future generations, when the time comes that they shall ‘dwindle in unbelief.’ The ‘Elect One’ in those days, shall sit on ‘my throne’ and his mouth shall pour forth all the secrets of Wisdom and Counsel. Await your Shepherd, and be ready for the rewards of the kingdom. If you shall be obedient to my commandments and endure to the end, you shall be saved at the Last Day!” …..
Allah knows the righteous! They laboriously served the ‘Most High’ and withstood danger every hour! As for the unbelievers — after having all things made known unto them, yet it was not long before many of them committed evils in the land. They began to rejoice over their brethren, saying: “Behold, the time is past, and we know that all the great and marvelous works cannot come to pass, of which has been spoken! Your joy and faith concerning this thing, has been in vain!” ….. And they began to contend and reason among themselves, saying: “It is not reasonable that such a being as a Messiah shall come. If so, why will he not show himself in this land as well as in the land of Jerusalem. But in a land which is far distant, a land which we know not? Let him hurry, that we may see it! We know that this is a ‘wicked tradition’ to cause us that we should believe in some great and marvelous thing which shall come to pass, but not among us. You cannot ‘stand’ much longer! We, follow that wherein we found our fathers — according to their Prayers and desires!” ….. Thus have they done in my House!
This House belongs to Allah, my Creator, with all that He has given into my keeping! And the people ‘who believed’ began to be sorrowful and ‘forgot much’ of what they were enjoined, lest by any means, these things which ‘had been spoken’ might not come to pass! Those who ‘loved Allah’ bowed themselves with those who bowed down! They thought no harm would follow. Then others succeeded them, who ‘inherited the Scriptures’ but the wrongdoers among them substituted words other than those given them, and availed themselves to the vanities of this world. Miserable is what they sold their souls for, if they only knew! That was a community that has passed on, and you will not be questioned about what they used to do. It is no concern of yours whether He forgive or punish them. And now ‘I tell you’ by the ‘Spirit of Prophecy’ — for Allah is powerful to the fulfilling of all His Words! Observe your duty to Allah, that you may be successful!
Those of you who say: “We are Muslim” ….. and those of you who are Jews, Sabeans, and Christians — listen to that what I am going to tell you, and believe in the Truth! Of ‘Knowledge’ it is only ‘a little’ that is communicated to you! The kings of the earth set themselves ‘against Allah’ and ‘against His Anointed!’ As often as a Messenger came unto them with what their souls desired not — some they called ‘liars’ and some they slew. Beware of the ‘scribes and learned!’ They ‘bend themselves’ under the judgments of the leaders! They sought to entice you from Our Revelations, to substitute in Our name something quite different, because they disbelieved in Our Revelations and said: “If you had control of the Mercy of Our Lord, you would hold them back!” ….. Lo, they are friends one to another, being advocates of death rather than Truth — ‘authorities of darkness!’
The rulers wanted to deceive man, and said: “Come, ‘lie’ with us, and let us kill this man! For he shall be of no use to us! If you do not help us, we will be unable to resist him. We will grant you ‘many immunities’ and give gifts. And we will repay you with good, what you do for us. Now therefore consider what you will do — all of you! Because of this Messiah, no one will be troubled! How will we be able to withstand him? When will his kingdom come? Give here ‘your advice and counsel,’ for he will surely defeat us!” …..
They replied: “No one ‘knows the hour’ and they are unable to discern the Truth — for ‘great is the blindness’ of those who read! Come, let us ‘lay hold of it’ by means of the form we have modeled, and ‘prophesy deceits’ — that they may not know how ‘to comprehend’ the things that are said! As long as ‘the hour’ has not yet come, do like this, and say: ‘What you look forward to has already come!’ ….. All but ‘killing him’ — he would be called dead. For many will accept our teaching in the beginning, since they are without perception. They will cleave to the name of ‘a dead man’ thinking they will become pure, and ‘he’ will learn no Wisdom at all when he comes. For who will be able to discover the Counsel of the Almighty or proclaim it correctly? He will be unable to see the Light!” …..
….. Behold, this is True, as Allah lives! What a ‘favor’ they did for them! Woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they earn! Every prophecy have they corrupted in so much, that Today a thing is not sought because Allah commanded it, but men look whether the doctors say it. As though Allah was in error, and men could not err! From them shall be ‘taken away’ even what they have, as it is written: “For the wisdom of their wise men, shall perish, and those who ‘erred in spirit, shall come to understanding!” …..
O Men of Understanding! Are you saying about Allah, what you don’t know? What could Allah mean by this? ….. “By the moon! By the departing night and coming dawn — he shall be his own witness!” ….. They did not desire it! That is why I tell you now! And should you follow ‘their desires’ after the Knowledge has come to you, you will have in Allah, neither Guardian or Helper! Now a Messenger has come to give you good news and to warn you: “Allah has power over all things!”
Look around you and gather your wits! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but how do you not know how to interpret the present time? Look at the moon rent asunder by the fear of Allah, because the darkness is passing away and the True Light is already shining! Unto every nation is a ‘fixed term’ and for every period is a Book! Allah does blot out or confirms what He pleases. Do you believe this? Now let this be your Book wherein to study Paradise. Allah bears witness that he revealed it with His Knowledge, so do the Angels! Truly he must follow me! Do you understand? Woe unto him who shall deny the Revelations of the Lord!
O Men of Understanding! Come to that which Allah has revealed, and to the Messenger. You are accountable to none but yourselves! Do as ‘you’ see best. Reason would that I should bear with you unto John’s baptism! Come, thus Allah exhorts you, that you may grow in Wisdom. Lo, he passes by me, and he moves on. Who can hinder him? Do not be ungrateful, but give good news to the steadfast, that what Allah ‘ordained’ must surely come to pass. It is the Truth, and you cannot frustrate it. I have said this, to keep you from falling away, and that I may declare to you, that I can no longer be your Teacher!
Do you think that I should show myself jealous? If only the people were all like Allah’s Prophets! Give place to this man, and you will be blessed, for he is manifold in Understanding, who can bring a ‘clean thing’ out of an unclean, and has learned such doctrine as is not known to the wisest men in the world that have grown old among books! This is a Mercy from my Lord plain to view! How can he do ‘this’ by wicked means? This power can proceed from none but Allah. Arise, and eat what Allah has cleansed — that He may bestow on the believers an excellent reward! Do not follow the example of those who became divided and opposed to one another after veritable proof had been given them. You are witnesses this day! I tell you: “This is the Heir!” ….. He must increase, but I must decrease — settle it therefore in your minds! Today salvation has come to this House, since he also is a son of Abraham!
This House belongs to Allah! And ‘this voice’ has come for your sake, in that you love ‘your enemies’ whom you know not! Had Allah pleased, I would never had recited it to you. For I have not spoken on my own authority. It is so the Scripture can be fulfilled as Allah said: “I will send My Messenger, even the Messenger of the covenant you delight in — he shall come! Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked and all those who do wickedly shall be as stubble!” …..
This thing has unfolded from Allah, just as Allah spoke! Behold, the king does sit in the gate, and will execute judgments in the midst of you, and in the sight of all the nations! And here I am! Can I discern between good and evil and between he who serves Allah, and him who serves Him not? For this purpose I came to this hour, and I would enter the blazing Fire, but not my House — without my purpose being fulfilled!
Allah only made it a message of Hope, to set your hearts at rest — to cleanse you with it, and rid you of Satan’s pollution! Satan demanded to have you that he might sift you like wheat! And I endeavor to ‘secure you against danger’ and to expect him! For he and his tribe watch you from a position where you cannot see them. They have devised an outrageous plot, and have led numerous men astray! Take heed that no man deceive you, for many shall come in my name and shall deceive many, saying: “This is not my doctrine” ….. And “It is finished!” ….. And “He has invented it!” ….. And, “He is a sinner and of the devil!” ….. Do not believe it! The words they utter are unjust and false!
Obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not turn away from him when you hear those, who do not reason! They say: “We have heard. Had we wanted we could have said the like of this!” ….. They are the losers! The Evil One has got the best of them, and any of you who do this! Hearken unto me! Open ‘your ears’ that you may hear, and ‘your hearts’ that you may understand, and ‘your minds’ that the ‘mysteries of Allah’ may be ‘unfolded to your view!’ For just as a man is bound to dispense his goods in the service of Allah, so is he also bound to dispense the doctrine!
Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy ‘the way of your paths’ on account of what ‘the followers of falsehood’ did! But you obeyed ‘from the heart’ that form of doctrine that was delivered to you. The Lord has ‘dispensed’ this to you, and Himself provides for each, His Food! Here it is; so taste it! Eat what Allah has cleansed! Until this day lasted the day of His Mercy, and He has been Merciful and Long-Suffering towards those who dwelt on the earth! But woe unto he who ‘knows’ that he rebels against Allah. Misery and shame shall this day fall on the unbelievers. Avoid them so that you may prosper. He that transgresses hereafter shall be sternly punished!
Are they ‘seeking a religion’ other than Allah’s? Teaching for doctrines, commandments of men? What can this book mean — ‘Sacred Tradition?’ This is not my doctrine! These are the fruits, of human traditions. And is like plants that flourish after the rain, but then they whither and turn yellow, soon becoming ‘worthless stubble.’ A ‘sad substitute’ the wrongdoers have chosen! Have you no sense? For in determining ‘duty’ — how can you ‘quote as authorities’ those who have broken their vows? Cease to hear the instruction that causes you to err from the words of Knowledge! Are they equal when compared? ‘Our Testimony’ is truer than their testimony!
Take what We have given you firmly, and listen — if you are believers! Woe to them who call evil, good and good, evil; that put darkness, for light and light, for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet, for bitter! Take heed that you do not judge ‘that which is evil’ to be of Allah, or that which is good to be of the devil! Hold fast to what We have given you, and remember what it contains. Thus you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection: “We were unaware of this!” ….. Nor can you say: “Will you destroy us for what the falsifiers did?” …..
What Allah has bestowed on His Messenger, belongs to Allah, for those whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day! So take what the Messenger gives you, and ‘fear Allah!’ Guard yourselves against evil, and those things which are ‘far from the Truth!’ Now these things I put you in mind of, for these are the Days of Vengeance, and as you have heard that ‘the Antichrist’ is coming — even now there has come to be ‘many Antichrists!’ Your enemies mustered a great force against you! Their intention is to extinguish Allah’s Light with ‘their mouths’ and to stir up the hearts of men with anger. They are not all alike, take heed, that they may be revealed to you now, for they are many!
You think of them as ‘one band’ — yet their hearts are divided! Most of them ‘do not know’ that they are in error! Not knowing the majesty of Allah and how great and wonderful He is. There are some who are righteous, but not according to ‘Knowledge.’ If they shall have sense in their hearts of what they have done amiss, they shall acknowledge their evil deeds and repent! Some of them are ‘believers’ — having their thoughts toward Allah. So they ‘shall acknowledge’ their sins, and forthwith understand it. They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and indeed ‘closer’ shall they be brought! Most of them are ‘ignorant men.’ They never sought out the Truth, nor inquired concerning the majesty of Allah! On these will Allah have Mercy if they repent, but if they give no heed, theirs shall be a woeful punishment!
I hope that ‘all’ — when they hear these things, shall repent and add no more to their sins! For ‘the leaders’ of these people cause them to err! Who has instructed you? What is your opinion? Satan ever seeks to annul the Laws of Allah! The Book ‘has been placed’ — that you may know the Truth! You will see the guilty ‘terrified of its contents.’ The Lord shall have them in derision! They will ‘plainly’ show themselves your enemies, and will stretch out ‘their hands and tongues’ with evil. For they kept believing they would not have to endure these things!
When you hear these sayings coming forth among you: “The Lord no longer works by Revelation! Hearken to us and it shall be well. Touch not the things which are sealed!” ….. And “We have received, and we need no more. He has forged it!” ….. And, “He has no understanding, a mortal has taught him!” ….. See that you are not troubled, depart from them all, and follow not ‘their desires!’ Because his instruction is good! He invites you, while they reprove you. They are in error, so leave them alone and be instructed! Cast the ‘deceitfulness of the Devil’ from you!
Tell me, do you know who is a hypocrite? He who with his tongue serves Allah, but with his heart serves men! They are abominable on earth before the eyes of Allah; therefore if you be hypocrites, I speak against you! I have seen ‘this people’ and behold, it is a ‘stiff neck’ people! This people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Because they have rejected Allah and His Messenger!
They use their Faith as a disguise, and debar others from the ‘Path of Allah!’ When you see them, their looks please you. Whereas ‘in fact’ they are your ‘most deadliest opponents’ — for ‘their hearts’ are not right with Him! Surely they are ‘liars’ all, who come to you in ‘sheep’s clothing’ but inwardly are ravenous wolves! ‘Listeners’ for another people, who come not to you. They are the ‘party of Satan’ and are well pleased with him! Do they know that Allah knows their secret, and their secret counsels with the elders who are set over them? They determined a plot that they were unable to carry out. Their ‘hearts are sealed’ and so they understand not, to Whom ‘alone’ pertains praise and honor forever!
You who have eyes! By this you shall be ‘put to the proof’ as to whether you are truthful or not. For you were as ‘sheep astray’ — tossed to and fro, and carried about with ‘every wind of doctrine!’ As many as have transgressed by any of the suggestions of ‘the adversary’ beg Allah’s forgiveness! For it is ‘seemly’ for a man to confess wherein he has transgressed, and not harden his heart. Make ‘no excuses’ this day. Allah does not charge a man with more than ‘He’ has given him!
Whatever the Messenger ‘gives you’ accept it, and whatever he forbids you forbear it, and leave them ‘in the lurch!’ Allah knows best their Faith! Their dread of you is more intense in their hearts than their fear of Allah. If you should follow ‘their desires’ after the knowledge has come to you, I here and now ‘disown you.’ You will find no believers in Allah and the Last Day on ‘friendly terms’ with those who oppose Allah and His Apostle. To help ‘Believers’ is incumbent on Us!
May it please Allah to take away from Satan, the dominion that he has over sinners! Surely He does not love the unbelievers, because they have rejected the communications of Allah and used to mock them. But most people do not know! Look at the Signs of Allah’s Mercy! This is an alleviation and a Mercy from your Lord. And because it unites Us more closely to the will of Allah, it is prescribed for you, that you may become righteous!
What We have revealed, in the Qur’an, is a ‘healing and blessing’ to true believers! Though it adds nothing but ruin, to the evil-doers! Allah originates creation, and then reproduces it. He brings forth the living from the dead, and the dead from the living. Most surely there are Signs in this, for a people who reflect. He has power over all things, and He creates what He pleases! You ‘stayed away’ as Allah ‘ordained’ — till the Day of Resurrection! This is the Day of Resurrection. Behold! It ‘was written’ by them of old, and again ‘it is written!’ But you did not know!
Draw near John, for even as Allah is ‘One’ so is the Faith ‘One!’ How many ‘prophecies’ has he corrupted? How has he violated the Law of Allah? It is written: “For all the Prophets and the Law ‘prophesied’ till John!” ….. Surely Allah’s ‘promise’ is True. Search the Scriptures! Now there has come to you ‘a clear proof’ from your Lord, and a Guide! He is the best of you, seeing with the eye and hearing with the ear. And it is necessary against every temptation to ‘strengthen yourself’ with this word! Allah has so said, and Allah so wills! Prepare you, to receive him, and let us receive correction! The Lord corrected me, even as He wills to correct you. Let us therefore begin anew!
O men and brethren! You know not what you say! Verily, I say unto you that ‘very few’ make ‘True Prayer’ — because with ‘their lips’ they honor me! Everyone when he prays ‘speaks with Allah.’ Is it right that you should then ‘leave speaking with Allah’ in order to speak with men? Verily, you have ‘greatly erred’ in calling me! They say: “Allah enjoined it!” ….. who bow down and prostrate themselves. He will punish them for their invented lies! I know not what you ‘particularly’ had in view, but I desire for the future that you do not so. For this desires the Devil — that Allah be forsaken for man!
I ‘supplicate’ only to my Lord, and I do not associate ‘any’ with Him! I control no hurt or benefit to you. If you would ‘seek Allah’ and make supplication to the Almighty, if you are ‘pure and upright’ — surely then He would rouse Himself for you! Let us ‘stand up’ in Prayer, the greatest pillar! Who can be better in religion than he who submits himself ‘entirely’ to Allah, and follows the Faith of Abraham, the Upright? But what do you do when you make Prayer? O you who believe! Do not confound ‘Truth with falsehood’ and ‘bow down with those who bow down!’ This did not Abraham! Have you no sense?
This may indeed be ‘an exacting discipline’ — if you are ‘bent on evil!’ But not for the devout! When Prayer is made to Allah, ‘lift up, your heads.’ The Lord looks down from Heaven! I was ‘upright’ before him. Is he who goes ‘prone on his face’ better guided? You ‘turn your backs’ on Him! Why do you change your course with so light a heart? Think! Do not ‘hold yourselves above Allah’ for this desires the Devil. As here he seeks to be ‘higher than Allah’ and not wishing to recognize ‘anyone above him!’ The same do you when you go to make Prayer. Look to it, and further not ‘this wicked device.’ Allah has brought such thing to naught! Are you ‘confident’ that He will not ‘cave in the earth’ beneath you — when lo, you are bound to the ground in heaviness?
Shake yourself from the dust and arise, and turn in repentance to ‘your’ Creator! That would be best for you in His Sight. He is the Forgiving One, and the Merciful! Woe to the hypocrites! They have ‘always’ been attracted ‘downwards.’ So leave them alone to amuse themselves and blunder about in folly, until the Day which they are threatened! On that Day, there shall be faces ‘veiled in darkness’ and ‘covered with dust!’
In the name of Allah, arise up ‘healed’ and let us leave this, if we would not be frightened in that Day! Lift up your heads, and stand in awe. This is the joy of His Way! On the day that the ‘Hereafter’ comes to be fulfilled, you shall return to Him the way He created you, as one by nature ‘upright.’ They shall not be able! Truly I know that it is so, and it is for you to believe therein, or believe not. ‘Above the heavens’— my heart is fixed! Seeing the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him. Ask any of them can they vouch for that!
O Men and Brethren! Where is your Faith? What are you going to do? Is not the king great in his power, Allah’s Prophet? The Teacher is here and he is calling you! So believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Light We have revealed! It is not a ‘narrative’ which could be forged, but a ‘verification’ of what went on before it, and a ‘distinct explanation’ of all things!
O Men who bear rule over Sea and Land! Allah is aware of what you do! Has the story not reached you of those who disbelieved of old? You were not present when they fixed their plan and were scheming. In their history verily there is a lesson for men of understanding — they plotted, and Allah plotted. But Allah is the best of plotters! Allah has prepared for them a stern punishment, and knows what you conceal, and what you publish! And on the day that He shall gather you, unto the Day of Assembly — you shall be told of what you did! That will be a Day of Mutual Loss. So believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Light We have revealed! It is not a ‘narrative’ which could be forged, but a ‘verification’ of what went on before it, and a ‘distinct explanation’ of all things!
O doctors, O scribes, O priests! Do you understand? See that you never again keep back the Truth, because in the faith of the Messiah, Allah shall give salvation to men, and without it none can be saved! This is the day that ‘their truthfulness’ shall benefit the Truthful! But if you do all for gain, and if you do all to ‘please men’ — woe unto you! Because, a man will ‘justly perish’ if having the knowledge of the way of Truth, he shall nevertheless not refrain himself from the way of darkness!
As for those of you who have been the ‘heads of the sedition and faction’ among you — verily evil is their handiwork, and Allah loves not ‘corrupters!’ I tell you ‘these’ testify of that which they have not seen or really heard. And from the beginning of this matter, the leaders and nobles have been sharing in this iniquity! How contrary they are to the ‘design of Allah!’ Ministers of the devil, their overseer. Such are the Owners of the Fire! Let not those who ‘seem worthy of credit’ disturb you. You know what evil Satan is the cause, in as much as he makes use of the Law to ‘appear good!’ So believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Light We have revealed! It is not a ‘narrative’ which could be forged, but a ‘verification’ of what went on before it, and a ‘distinct explanation’ of all things!
O my Disciples! Did I not when on earth truly say: “Allah will raise a People whom He will love and who would love Him. Humble towards Believers and never afraid of the reproaches of such as who find fault?” ….. No doubt you are the People, as you have seen — this is the Messiah whom the Most High has kept until the End of Days! This day is Holy to the Lord, so go your way and do not be sorrowful. Reconcile yourselves to Allah. Guard your prayers and ‘Stand’ before Allah in devotion, for the Lord will exalt you! This is the departing between me and you. Go now with a clear conscience — a servant to my Lord. What are you going to do? Hurry! What do you want me to do? I have told you already. Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the Light We have revealed! It is not a ‘narrative’ which could be forged, but a ‘verification’ of what went on before it, and a ‘distinct explanation’ of all things!
Would that you Today knew the things which made for peace, but now are hidden from you! If you are True believers it shall be made ‘plain’ to you. So then, if you do the ‘service of Allah’ because Allah created you and asks it of you, and today this discourse has made you sad. Do not be faithless, but believing; that so whatever is done may be sure and well done. I ‘entrust’ my affair to Allah, Who has sent His Prophet unto my House, for He is better than I. May Allah be your reward! You shall attain to Him, who followed me for the Word of Allah, nor shall anything that you have done be lost to you!
I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now! Bear in mind what I have told you! John, verily, he is here ‘master of all masters’ that teach doctrine in this world. I have told you already, as Allah lives — he has received the ‘Gift of Prophecy.’ This is true because I am assured thereof by Allah! He will keep my words for Allah showed them unto him! Listen therefore to his words which are Truth. That he may bring forth those who believe and do good works, from Darkness unto Light! Take heed of him in the Way of which you are going, and do not ‘separate yourselves’ from him in the road! For he will not lay upon man ‘more than right’ and it will be ‘fitting and for the honor of Allah!’
By ‘His Words’ he vindicates the Truth! It indeed has come even though the unbelievers may detest it. For Allah’s ‘is the Final Argument!’ Let the wise bear this in mind. Great is the Truth, and above all things — Blessed be the God of Truth, Allah! To Allah belongs ‘the dominion’ of the heavens and earth, and all there is therein, and it is He Who has power over all things!
“Peace be unto you, and the Mercy of Allah!”
