Be not veiled by aught that hath been revealed in the Qur'an, or by
what thou hast learned from the works of those Suns of immaculacy and
Moons of majesty,(22) regarding the perversion of the Texts by the
fanatical or their alteration by their corruptors. By these statements
only certain specific and clearly indicated passages are intended. In
spite of My weakness and poverty, I would assuredly be able, should I so
desire, to expound these passages unto thine eminence. But this would
divert us from our purpose and lead us astray from the outstretched path.
It would immerse us in limited allusions and distract us from that which
is beloved in the court of the All-Praised.
