Say: O Men! This Is A Matchless Day

Say: O men! This is a matchless Day. Matchless must, likewise, be the

tongue that celebrateth the praise of the Desire of all nations, and

matchless the deed that aspireth to be acceptable in His sight. The whole

human race hath longed for this Day, that perchance it may fulfil that

which well beseemeth its station, and is worthy of its destiny. Blessed is

the man whom the affairs of the world have failed to deter from

recognizing Him Who is the Lord of all things.

So blind hath become the human heart that neither the disruption of the

city, nor the reduction of the mountain in dust, nor even the cleaving of

the earth, can shake off its torpor. The allusions made in the Scriptures

have been unfolded, and the signs recorded therein have been revealed, and

the prophetic cry is continually being raised. And yet all, except such as

God was pleased to guide, are bewildered in the drunkenness of their


Witness how the world is being afflicted with a fresh calamity every day.

Its tribulation is continually deepening. From the moment the

Suriy-i-Ra'is (Tablet to Ra'is) was revealed until the present day,

neither hath the world been tranquillized, nor have the hearts of its

peoples been at rest. At one time it hath been agitated by contentions and

disputes, at another it hath been convulsed by wars, and fallen a victim

to inveterate diseases. Its sickness is approaching the stage of utter

hopelessness, inasmuch as the true Physician is debarred from

administering the remedy, whilst unskilled practitioners are regarded with

favor, and are accorded full freedom to act. ...The dust of sedition hath

clouded the hearts of men, and blinded their eyes. Erelong, they will

perceive the consequences of what their hands have wrought in the Day of

God. Thus warneth you He Who is the All-Informed, as bidden by One Who is

the Most Powerful, the Almighty.
