Say: O Men! This Is A Matchless Day
Say: O men! This is a matchless Day. Matchless must, likewise, be the
tongue that celebrateth the praise of the Desire of all nations, and
matchless the deed that aspireth to be acceptable in His sight. The whole
human race hath longed for this Day, that perchance it may fulfil that
which well beseemeth its station, and is worthy of its destiny. Blessed is
the man whom the affairs of the world have failed to deter from
recognizing Him Who is the Lord of all things.
So blind hath become the human heart that neither the disruption of the
city, nor the reduction of the mountain in dust, nor even the cleaving of
the earth, can shake off its torpor. The allusions made in the Scriptures
have been unfolded, and the signs recorded therein have been revealed, and
the prophetic cry is continually being raised. And yet all, except such as
God was pleased to guide, are bewildered in the drunkenness of their
Witness how the world is being afflicted with a fresh calamity every day.
Its tribulation is continually deepening. From the moment the
Suriy-i-Ra'is (Tablet to Ra'is) was revealed until the present day,
neither hath the world been tranquillized, nor have the hearts of its
peoples been at rest. At one time it hath been agitated by contentions and
disputes, at another it hath been convulsed by wars, and fallen a victim
to inveterate diseases. Its sickness is approaching the stage of utter
hopelessness, inasmuch as the true Physician is debarred from
administering the remedy, whilst unskilled practitioners are regarded with
favor, and are accorded full freedom to act. ...The dust of sedition hath
clouded the hearts of men, and blinded their eyes. Erelong, they will
perceive the consequences of what their hands have wrought in the Day of
God. Thus warneth you He Who is the All-Informed, as bidden by One Who is
the Most Powerful, the Almighty.
