There Hath Appeared In This Revelation

There hath appeared in this Revelation what hath never appeared before. As

to the infidels that have witnessed what hath been manifested, they murmur

and say: "Verily, this is a sorcerer who hath devised a lie against God."

They are indeed an outcast people.

Tell out to the nations, O Pen of the Ancient of Days, the things that

have happened in 'Iraq. Tell them of the messenger whom the congregation

of the divines of that land had delegated to meet Us, who, when attaining

Our presence, questioned Us concerning certain sciences, and whom We

answered by virtue of the knowledge We inherently possess. Thy Lord is,

verily, the Knower of things unseen. "We testify," said he, "that the

knowledge Thou dost possess is such as none can rival. Such a knowledge,

however, is insufficient to vindicate the exalted station which the people

ascribe to Thee. Produce, if Thou speakest the truth, what the combined

forces of the peoples of the earth are powerless to produce." Thus was it

irrevocably decreed in the court of the presence of thy Lord, the

All-Glorious, the Loving.

"Witness! What is it thou seest?" He was dumbfounded. And when he came to

himself, he said: "I truly believe in God, the All-Glorious, the

All-Praised." "Go thou to the people, and tell them: 'Ask whatsoever ye

please. Powerful is He to do what He willeth. Nothing whatsoever, be it of

the past or of the future, can frustrate His Will.' Say: 'O ye

congregation of the divines! Choose any matter ye desire, and ask your

Lord, the God of Mercy, to reveal it unto you. If He fulfil your wish, by

virtue of His sovereignty, believe ye then in Him, and be not of those

that reject His truth.'" "The dawn of understanding hath now broken," said

he, "and the testimony of the All-Merciful is fulfilled." He arose and

returned unto them that sent him, at the bidding of God, the All-Glorious,

the Well-Beloved.

Days passed and he failed to come back to Us. Eventually, there came

another messenger who informed Us that the people had given up what they

originally had purposed. They are indeed a contemptible people. This is

what happened in 'Iraq, and to what I reveal I Myself am witness. This

happening was noised abroad, yet none was found to comprehend its meaning.

Thus did We ordain it. Would that ye knew this!

By My Self! Whoso hath in bygone ages asked Us to produce the signs of

God, hath, no sooner We revealed them to him, repudiated God's truth. The

people, however, have, for the most part, remained heedless. They whose

eyes are illumined with the light of understanding will perceive the sweet

savors of the All-Merciful, and will embrace His truth. These are they who

are truly sincere.
