In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O Mankind, We are of the Jinn! Some of Us are Righteous, and some of Us are less than that! We follow Different Paths — having the power to choose. Even your Paths are indeed Diverse — for the works of Man are some good, and others bad! We are of those who Submit to Allah, the God of the Heavens and Earth, and Lord of All Worlds! As for those who Deviate — they follow Satan!
When Allah created Adam, he said to Us and the Angels: “Make obeisance to him!” ….. But through Selfishness and Pride, Satan refused, saying: “I am better than him!” ….. Satan’s followers chose to believe that his word was true, so they yielded to him, and renounced the Glory of Allah!
Before his fall from Heaven and Grace, he sent orders to Us, that We were to come under his command! But We would not, and took not his advice! Allah in His Mercy, drove him from among Us. For he had become Darkness itself, and a worker of Unrighteousness and Death! And when he fell from among Us — there was great joy in Heaven!
Man was created for a noble cause! Man was placed on Earth, where he must strive to release himself from the many-sided conflicts of this world! He too, has the power to choose — to Submit to Allah, and attain Paradise, or to deviate and sink to the deepest Depths! Those who deviate are like unto the Jinn who followed Satan — Gentiles!
Do not call upon anyone besides Allah, Who has in His Boundlessness of Love, made all Men equal! All People are alike; the White, the Black, the Yellow and the Red — the whole Human Race! Recognize the Law of Equity and Right, and live in Peace! Live as you would have your brother live! When man honors man, he honors Allah. And what man does for man — he does for Allah! Bear in mind, that when man harms in thought, word, or deed — another man, he does a wrong to Allah!
Serve Allah! Assist the poor, help the weak, and do harm to none! Then He will light your countenance, and will fill your hearts with Peace! Man cannot be a free man — filled with Wisdom and Truth, being hedged about and confined in straits which he cannot pass. You men who wish for gold, honor and fame, and you who crave what belongs to others, as one not satisfied! Why? Just for your Selfish Selves? How dare you! You are emulating Satan, and are all together like unto him — as if begotten of him! Repent to your Maker, and kill your egos, that would be better for you!
The Lord has appointed Repentance, because He Knows the manifold wickedness of Satan! Satan maliciously lays snares for All — even Jinn. And is always contriving something against Man! He entices you to do evil and vice, and to say about Allah what you do not know. Allah thus clarifies His Revelations for you, that you may be Guided!
Man has something in his Soul that enables him to see the Word of Truth — it is called Spirit Consciousness! It sleeps in every soul, but cannot be awakened until the Holy Spirit becomes a welcome guest! The Holy Spirit knocks at the door of every soul, but does not enter in until the will of man — throws wide the Door of the Soul! There is no power in intellect to turn the key. Philosophy and Science have failed! The spring that throws open the Door is Purity of Heart, Prayer, and Holy Thought, and when mingled together the Spirit Consciousness will awaken and sleep no more! Keep Purity of Heart and you shall understand how to hold fast the Will of Allah, and forget whatever is Corruptible!
Direct your heart to that which has been said to you! As long as you are Ignorant — you commit no fault. But if you have offended and continue, you shall become Guilty and commit a great offense against yourself! Through Repentance, Allah cleanses from sins, the Soul — when it Acknowledges, and makes confession. The Mercy of Allah is upon them that love Him in Truth. Not alike is the chastening of the Righteous and that of Sinners! He corrects the Righteous and blots out their errors done in Ignorance — for He is Gracious, Merciful, Patient and full of Compassion!
This Book has been placed — calling to virtue, and advocating Righteousness, and deterring from Evil! Blessed are they who tremble at the Word of Allah. They shall find Peace, and shall not suffer bitterness, at the Last Judgment! His Word shall prove effectual to their Salvation, and they shall enjoy Rest! He has made it a Message of Hope for you — to reassure your hearts thereby. Do not separate and dispute after the Clear Proofs. Allah desires no Injustice to Mankind nor Jinn! He Forgives whom He wills. Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful!
A youth, from among the Jinn who were hurled to earth — received of the Book! Take heed to what he, and his Family that sheltered him, have to say! ….. “I never spoke a true word in my life! Being a sinner, and living in false pretense. I had never listened or heard so diligently of these Words of Righteousness — I affirmed a lie as Truth, and those who do such things follow the way of Death! But whosoever shall listen to this Book, shall depart from all lying and Live!
Allah says: “Blessed are those who Repent, and turn unto Me!” ….. He gives Understanding to all who repent. I knew that I was a sinner, and thus knew what I must do to Live! I stood up and turned to the Heavens and prayed to Allah, saying: “O Allah, You Alone are my Lord! Strengthen my soul, my heart, my tongue and lips, with Your Words of Truth. And Forgive me and my parents, and everyone who has Faith!” …..
Lo and behold, an Angel appeared before me, and said: “Allah, the All-Hearing, and Merciful — has looked down and heard your Plea! Accepted is your Prayer. Now enlighten those in Darkness; break asunder their fetters, which before could not be broken!” …..
I straightaway went to my father and said to him: “O Father! Why do you reject the Revelations of Allah? Why do you hinder from Allah’s Path, those who believe? Should we treat those who would Surrender to Him like villains? What is the matter with you and how do you judge? We should hold fast to them who fear Allah, and receive in their hearts, the Commands of His Word!” …..
My Father replied: “O my Son! How did you come by this?” ….. I then said unto him: “It is from a Noble Book, well-protected — a Revelation from the Lord and Creator of the Worlds! And you have made it your livelihood to deny it. You cheat your soul and delude by wishful thinking. Allah is not unaware of what you do, and Testifies that your deeds are Evil! Isn’t it time for you to believe, and Surrender your heart to Allah, and to the Truth, He has sent down?” …..
My Father then said to me: “By the Lord of the Heavens and Earth — it is all True as the fact that you live and speak! Allah is my Lord and your Lord. Let not Satan divert you, as he did me! I will make known to you what came upon us through him. Before our fall from Heaven, he deceived us — promising us a great kingdom, a divine nature; and other promises. We believed his word was true, and yielded to him!
When all Allah’s creation made obeisance to Adam — We rejected the Lord’s commandment, and bowed down to Satan, and praised and worshiped him! And Allah was angry with us concerning this. We of our own will transgressed, and now we are being repaid with the torment of shame because of our Unjust Arrogance! We had fallen through our pride, and were kindled with great hatred of Man because of that which took place! All the unrighteous things that we have done was through the advisement and counsel of Satan!
Allah did not create Us to see sufferings and other troubles! We were stripped of the bright nature we had for being Thankless, and Ungrateful! When we dwelt in Paradise, amidst Gardens and Springs; there was no Darkness. We did not hunger or thirst, there was no heat or cold, nor trembling and fear, and above all — no Oppression! There existed only Peace and Security! Allah was our Provider!
When this dawned on me, I went to Satan and said to him: “Can you make me a Garden as Allah made for me? Or can you clothe me in the same bright nature in which Allah had clothed me? Where is the bright nature that you promised to give me? Where is that fair speech of yours which you held with us at first, when we were in Paradise? You made us fall from brightness into darkness — from Peace and Rest, to Misery, and from a higher state to one of Degradation! Do not do violence to Man, or entice him to deny Allah!” ….. then Satan wagged his head and said: “Did you think that when I have spoken to anyone about anything, that I could give it to him or fulfill my word? I myself never believe what I say! I fell and made you fall, by that which I myself fell. And whosoever accepts my counsel shall fall thereby! I am lord over you because you listened to me and transgressed Allah’s command! This is my will, and my good pleasure — that we may let not one of the sons of men inherit what we had in Paradise! War against me, and in suffering shall you bear a child, and in sorrow shall you bring forth that child!” …..
I responded: “O Father, you heard what he said! Truly he cannot fulfill one of the things he told you. Do your eyes see the Good, Allah has given you? Look at me — full of joy, and of great Peace! Allah gave me Knowledge and Understanding, and a Pure Heart and Right Mind — I came forth from you!
Do you also see the evil which has come upon you from Satan? You thought that he loved you, and that he wished to raise you on high. But he wished you to come out of the Light into Darkness and Degradation. You have sinned, and you did fall. Be not afraid of him, but fear Allah, then he shall not be able to prevail against Us!
Come with me to a place of Rest! Allah gave me the Fruit of the Tree of Life, that We might eat of it and Live! Now therefore ask Allah to give you fruit of this Tree of Life, that He may preserve your soul from Death, and that you shall have Rest! Arise and let Us pray to Allah, and it shall be Salvation to you! Keep yourself chaste, and suffer not doubt to enter your heart. Allah has power over all things, and gives Understanding to all that Repent with all their heart!” ….. Thereafter, We stood up the whole night Praying!” …..
“O Mankind! Have you heard these words of my son? Eat of this Tree and find Rest — for indeed it is the Truth, and there is no shortcoming in it! If anyone after this shall be tempted by Satan, and sin — it shall not benefit them. I am restored again to Life, since I hearkened so diligently to the Words of this Book. I stood, prayed to Allah, and repented — and shall not willingly add to my sins. I was forgiven my Transgressions, and so shall All, who shall observe and obey His Commands!” …..
….. O you who Believe, and you Gentiles! Allah created all things to serve You! Should you not be Grateful and Thankful and serve Him? The Lord has multiplied the Knowledge of Himself. And the Restrainers were not able to restrain it. For this is from the Lord — let out in Measure! How did you come by this? Let him be powerful in the utterance of Knowledge! Let him be wise in making exact judgment in words. It behooves him to be humble-minded, and to seek what is profitable to all Men, and not to his own advantage!
Had he falsely attributed some statements from Us — none of you could have restrained Us from him! Surely it is a Message for the Righteous. We know some of you will reject it. Yet it is the Absolute Truth! So glorify the Name of Allah, the Forgiving and Merciful!
