In this station, were He Who is the Embodiment of the End to say:

"Verily, I am the Point of the Beginning", He would indeed be speaking the

truth. And were He to say: "I am other than Him", this would be equally

true. Likewise, were He to proclaim: "Verily, I am the Lord of heaven and

earth", or "the King of kings", or "the Lord of the realm above", or

Muhammad, or 'Ali, or their descendants, or aught else, He would indeed be

proclaiming the truth of God. He, verily, ruleth over all created things

and standeth supreme above all besides Him. Hast thou not heard what hath

been said aforetime: "Muhammad is our first, Muhammad our last, Muhammad

our all"? And elsewhere: "They all proceed from the same Light"?
