O My brother! Forsake thine own desires, turn thy face unto thy Lord,

and walk not in the footsteps of those who have taken their corrupt

inclinations for their god, that perchance thou mayest find shelter in the

heart of existence, beneath the redeeming shadow of Him Who traineth all

names and attributes. For they who turn away from their Lord in this day

are in truth accounted amongst the dead, though to outward seeming they

may walk upon the earth, amongst the deaf, though they may hear, and

amongst the blind, though they may see, as hath been clearly stated by Him

Who is the Lord of the Day of Reckoning: "Hearts have they with which they

understand not, and eyes have they with which they see not...."(46) They

walk the edge of a treacherous bank and tread the brink of a fiery

abyss.(47) They partake not of the billows of this surging and

treasure-laden Ocean, but disport themselves with their own idle words.
