Lay Not Aside The Fear Of God O Ye The

Lay not aside the fear of God, O ye the learned of the world, and judge

fairly the Cause of this unlettered One to Whom all the Books of God, the

Protector, the Self-Subsisting, have testified. ...Will not the dread of

Divine displeasure, the fear of Him Who hath no peer or equal, arouse you?

He Whom the world hath wronged hath, at no time, associated with you, hath

never studied your writings, nor participated in any of your disputations.

The garb He weareth, His flowing locks, His headdress, attest the truth of

His words. How long will ye persist in your injustice? Witness the

habitation in which He, Who is the incarnation of justice, hath been

forced to dwell. Open your eyes, and, beholding His plight, meditate

diligently upon that which your hands have wrought, that haply ye may not

be deprived of the light of His Divine utterance, nor remain bereft of

your share of the ocean of His knowledge.

Certain ones among both commoners and nobles have objected that this

wronged One is neither a member of the ecclesiastical order nor a

descendant of the Prophet. Say: O ye that claim to be just! Reflect a

little while, and ye shall recognize how infinitely exalted is His present

state above the station ye claim He should possess. The Will of the

Almighty hath decreed that out of a house wholly devoid of all that the

divines, the doctors, the sages, and scholars commonly possess His Cause

should proceed and be made manifest.

The Breathings of the Divine Spirit awoke Him, and bade Him arise and

proclaim His Revelation. No sooner was He roused from His slumber than He

lifted up His voice and summoned the whole of mankind unto God, the Lord

of all worlds. We have been moved to reveal these words in consideration

of the weakness and frailty of men; otherwise, the Cause We have

proclaimed is such as no pen can ever describe, nor any mind conceive its

greatness. To this beareth witness He with Whom is the Mother Book.
