If thou be of the inmates of this city within the ocean of divine

unity, thou wilt view all the Prophets and Messengers of God as one soul

and one body, as one light and one spirit, in such wise that the first

among them would be last and the last would be first. For they have all

arisen to proclaim His Cause and have established the laws of divine

wisdom. They are, one and all, the Manifestations of His Self, the

Repositories of His might, the Treasuries of His Revelation, the

Dawning-Places of His splendour, and the Daysprings of His light. Through

them are manifested the signs of sanctity in the realities of all things

and the tokens of oneness in the essences of all beings. Through them are

revealed the elements of glorification in the heavenly realities and the

exponents of praise in the eternal essences. From them hath all creation

proceeded and unto them shall return all that hath been mentioned. And

since in their inmost Beings they are the same Luminaries and the

self-same Mysteries, thou shouldst view their outward conditions in the

same light, that thou mayest recognize them all as one Being, nay, find

them united in their words, speech, and utterance.
