Thy Unity Is Inscrutable, O My God, To All Except
Thy unity is inscrutable, O my God, to all except them that have
recognized Him Who is the Manifestation of Thy singleness and the
Day-Spring of Thy oneness. Whoso assigneth a rival unto Him hath assigned
a rival unto Thee, and whoso hath set up a peer for Him hath set up a peer
for Thyself. No, no, none can withstand Thee in the whole of creation.
Thou hast everlastingly been exalted far above all comparison and
likeness. Thy oneness hath been demonstrated by the oneness of Him Who is
the Dawning-Place of Thy Revelation. Whosoever denieth this, hath denied
Thy unity, and disputed with Thee about Thy sovereignty, and contended
with Thee in Thy realm, and repudiated Thy commandments.
Assist Thou Thy servants, O my Lord, to recognize Thy unity and to declare
Thy oneness, that all may gather together around what Thou didst desire in
this Day whereon the sun of Thine essence hath shone forth above the
horizon of Thy will, and the moon of Thine own being hath risen from the
Day-Spring of Thy behest. Thou art He, O my Lord, from Whose knowledge
nothing whatsoever escapeth, and Whom no one can frustrate. Thou doest Thy
pleasure, by Thy sovereignty that overshadoweth the worlds.
Thou well knowest, O my God, my Best-Beloved, that naught can quench the
thirst I suffer in my separation from Thee except the waters of Thy
presence, and that the tumult of my heart can never be stilled save
through the living fountain of my reunion with Thee. Send down, then, upon
me, O my Lord, out of the heaven of Thy bounty what will draw me nearer
unto the chalice of Thy gifts, and make me able to quaff the choice sealed
Wine, Whose seal hath been loosed in Thy name, and from Which the sweet
savors of Thy days have been shed abroad. Thou, in truth, art the
All-Bountiful, Whose grace is infinite.
The whole universe testifieth to Thy generosity. Have mercy, then, upon me
by Thy graciousness, and deal bountifully with me through the power of Thy
sovereignty, and suffer me to enjoy near access to Thee by Thy manifold
favors. Thou, truly, art the Great Giver, the Almighty, the
Ever-Forgiving, the Most Bountiful.
