128 The Sadratu'l-muntaha #100





Literally the furthermost Lote-Tree, translated by Shoghi Effendi as

the Tree beyond which there is no passing. This is used as a symbol in

Islam, for example in the accounts of Muhammad's Night Journey, to mark

the point in the heavens beyond which neither men nor angels can pass in

their approach to God, and thus to delimit the bounds of divine knowledge

as revealed to mankind. Hence it is often used in the Baha'i Writings to

designate the Manifestation of God Himself. (See also note 164.)
