Bereft, however, of the essence of the mysteries of His wisdom, which
We have imparted unto thee beneath the veils of these blessed and
soul-stirring words, thou wouldst fail to attain unto even a sprinkling of
the oceans of divine knowledge or the crystal streams of divine power, and
wouldst be recorded in the Mother Book, through the Pen of oneness and by
the Finger of God, amongst the ignorant. Nor wouldst thou be able to grasp
a single word of the Book or a single utterance of the Kindred of God(14)
concerning the mysteries of the beginning and the end.
