Say: By the righteousness of God! I, verily, am
His (The &Bab's) Best-Beloved; and at this moment He listeneth to
these verses descending from the Heaven of Revelation
and bewaileth the wrongs ye have committed in these
days. Fear God, and join not with the aggressor. Say: O
people, should ye choose to disbelieve in Him, (&Baha'u'llah) refrain
at least from rising up against Him. By God! Sufficient
are the hosts of tyranny that are leagued against Him!
Verily, He (The &Bab) revealed certain laws so that, in this
Dispensation, the Pen of the Most High might have no
need to move in aught but the glorification of His own
transcendent Station and His most effulgent Beauty.
Since, however, We have wished to evidence Our
bounty unto you, We have, through the power of
truth, set forth these laws with clarity and mitigated
what We desire you to observe. He, verily, is the
Munificent, the Generous.
He (The &Bab) hath previously made known unto you that
which would be uttered by this Dayspring of Divine
wisdom. He said, and He speaketh the truth: "He (&Baha'u'llah) is
the One Who will under all conditions proclaim:
`Verily, there is none other God besides Me, the
One, the Incomparable, the Omniscient, the All-Informed.'"
This is a station which God hath assigned
exclusively to this sublime, this unique and wondrous
Revelation. This is a token of His bounteous favour, if
ye be of them who comprehend, and a sign of His
irresistible decree. This is His Most Great Name, His
Most Exalted Word, and the Dayspring of His Most
Excellent Titles, if ye could understand. Nay more,
through Him every Fountainhead, every Dawning-place
of Divine guidance is made manifest. Reflect, O
people, on that which hath been sent down in truth;
ponder thereon, and be not of the transgressors.
Consort with all religions with amity and concord,
that they may inhale from you the sweet fragrance of
God. Beware lest amidst men the flame of foolish
ignorance overpower you. All things proceed from God
and unto Him they return. He is the source of all
things and in Him all things are ended.
