My God, My Fire And My Light! The Days Which
My God, my Fire and my Light! The days which Thou hast named the
Ayyam-i-Ha (the Days of Ha, Intercalary days) in Thy Book have begun, O
Thou Who art the King of names, and the fast which Thy most exalted Pen
hath enjoined unto all who are in the kingdom of Thy creation to observe
is approaching. I entreat Thee, O my Lord, by these days and by all such
as have during that period clung to the cord of Thy commandments, and laid
hold on the handle of Thy precepts, to grant that unto every soul may be
assigned a place within the precincts of Thy court, and a seat at the
revelation of the splendors of the light of Thy countenance.
These, O my Lord, are Thy servants whom no corrupt inclination hath kept
back from what Thou didst send down in Thy Book. They have bowed
themselves before Thy Cause, and received Thy Book with such resolve as is
born of Thee, and observed what Thou hadst prescribed unto them, and
chosen to follow that which had been sent down by Thee.
Thou seest, O my Lord, how they have recognized and confessed whatsoever
Thou hast revealed in Thy Scriptures. Give them to drink, O my Lord, from
the hands of Thy graciousness the waters of Thine eternity. Write down,
then, for them the recompense ordained for him that hath immersed himself
in the ocean of Thy presence, and attained unto the choice wine of Thy
I implore Thee, O Thou the King of kings and the Pitier of the
downtrodden, to ordain for them the good of this world and of the world to
come. Write down for them, moreover, what none of Thy creatures hath
discovered, and number them with those who have circled round Thee, and
who move about Thy throne in every world of Thy worlds.
Thou, truly, art the Almighty, the All-Knowing, the All-Informed.
