O cherished servants6 as I have made injustice unlawful for Me6 so I have made it
unlawful for you. Be not unjust.

O servants6 all of you are wandering astray except the ones whom I have guided. Ask
Me to guide and I will guide you.

O servants6 all of you are hungry except those whom I have fed. Ask Me to feed you
and I will feed you.

O servants6 indeed you are erring night and day6 yet I forgive all offences. Ask Me to
forgive and I will forgive you.

O servants6 although you may think you are doing harm to Me through your negative
actions6 no harm can reach Me. Although you may imagine you are benefitting Me
through your good deeds6 these acts of yours cannot add the least particle of goodness
to My Own overflowing Goodness.

O servants6 even if the entire spectrum of intelligent beings-- from the first of you to
the last of you6 from human beings to beings on subtle planes-- possessed the heart of
the most evolved ones among you6 this would add nothing to My Kingdom.

O servants6 even if all intelligent beings6 from the first to the last6 possessed the heart
of the most rebellious ones among you6 this would take away nothing from My
Kingdom.

O servants6 if all intelligent beings6 visible and invisible6 gathered together and
demanded their most sublime wishes from Me and I granted every one of them6 this
would in no way diminish the treasures that are with Me6 any more than a needle
dipped in the ocean would decrease the ocean.

O servants6 I take account of your deeds only according to their subtle inner
intentions6 and it is according to these intentions that I will fully reward you.
O servants6 those who see goodness all around them are opening their being to the
praise of Allah. Those who find other than the good can blame only themselves.

Among the most intimate to Me of My saints are the believers of humble means who
find their pleasure in prayer6 worshipping their Lord in the most beautiful way6 and
who obey Him both secretly and openly. These saints are hidden among the people.
They are not always pointed out by Me. They are content with small sustenance. They
receive and bear trials patiently.c

By My Loving Power6 by My Overflowing Generosity6 by My Nobility! Concerning
those who cry out "bismillahi-r-rahmani-r-rahim6 in the Name of Allah Most
Compassionate6 Most Merciful6" and then recite once the opening chapter of Holy
Quran6 Sura Jatiha6 by your witness6 O Israfil6 I have already forgiven these persons.
I have accepted their acts of goodness and separated them from their acts of negation.
I will not place the Jire upon their tongues. I will protect them from the Divine
Chastening experienced after death by those who lead lives of negation. I will save
them from great terror on the Day of Resurrection. I promise they will meet Me
directly in the blessed company of all prophets and saints.c

Some children of Adam slander Me by claiming that I have given birth to a son.
Others accuse Me of falsely promising eternal life to the soul6 insisting6"Allah cannot
call me to eternal life as He called me to earthly life." Eternal resurrection is no more
difficult for Me than earthly creation. As for the slander "Allah has begotten a son6 " I
am the One6 the Complete. I do not give birth6 and neither was I born. There is
nothing apart from Me6 the One Reality.c

The angels have interceded6 the prophets have interceded6 the believers have
interceded. Now the Most Merciful of the Merciful will intercede. He will draw out
from the Jire even persons who never offered acts of goodness and whose hardened
hearts will have already been melted into lava. He will then immerse them in the river
that flows before the entrance to Paradise called the River of Life.

Now enter My Paradise. Whatever you see there will be yours.c

Nothing that brings you close to Me do I love more than your contentment with My
Divine Decree. You can do nothing that will preserve your acts of goodness better
than being content to concentrate on your own responsibility. O Moses6 do not seek
support from the people of the world6 for this will alienate you from Me. Do not
compromise with this world in any way that is contrary to true religion6 for this will
close the doors of My Mercy to you. Moses6 say to those who are constantly turning to
Me6 "Rejoice6 O believers." And say to those who humble themselves before Me6 "O
believers6 continue always to abstain from evil and practice goodness."c

I have apportioned the opening Sura of the Glorious Quran between Me and My
servants: their act of praising and My Response to their praise. When my servants
affirm6 "All praises flow to Allah6 Lord of countless worlds6 " Allah the Exalted
responds" "My servants have praised Me." When the servant affirm6 "the Most
Merciful6 the Most Loving6" Allah responds: "My servants have intensely praised Me."
When they affirm6 "Sovereign of the Day of Judgement6 " Allah responds: "My
servants have glorified Me and taken complete refuge in Me." When they affirm6 "You
alone do we worship and from You alone do we seek help6" Allah responds: "This
level of praise remains a secret between Me and each of My servants6 and they will
truly receive what they ask for." When they pray6 "Guide us on the straight path6 the
path of those upon whom You shower Your Javor6 not the path of those who incur
Divine Correction6" Allah responds: "This level of praise belongs to My most intimate
servants6 and they will receive infinitely more than they ask."c

O children of Adam6 if you could see the minute span of precious time that remains
until your death6 you would renounce all selfish projects and vain expectations. You
would restrain your desire to possess6 in all its subtle forms. And you would
wholeheartedly seek to intensify your good actions. Otherwise6 regret will seize you as
you are falling into death6 when your family and servants leave you6 when friends
distance themselves from you and even intimates abandon you. Jrom the moment of
death6 you will no longer be able to return to your people or increase your good
actions. Therefore6 live now with a clear vision of the Day of Resurrection and be free
on that Day from distress and remorse.c

declare war.Human beings cannot approach Me by any way dearer to Me than
performing what I have commanded. And My intimate servants never cease to come
nearer and nearer to Me through performing acts of loving worship beyond what I
have commanded until I embrace them entirely in My Love.When I embrace them6 I
am the hearing by which they hear6 the seeing by which they see6 the hands by which
they grasp6 and the feet by which they walk. If they supplicate Me for all humanity6
certainly I will respond. If they seek refuge with Me for all humanity6 surely I will
grant it. None of My Divine Actions causes Me greater empathy than to withdraw
from the earthly body the eternal soul of a believer who abhors death. It actually
causes Me Divine Distress to afflict one of My lovers in this way.c

My Countenance6 revealing Itself to you forever. Therefore rejoice6 for My Own Self is
pleased with you. Rejoice! Turn to your companions6 O My chosen ones. Embrace
them and celebrate together the mystical marriage. Turn to the other souls linked to
you6 and share your joy. Go to your elevated spiritual stations and enter them joyfully.
Go to your interior gardens and stroll there. Go to your heavenly mounts and ride
them. Don your robes of Paradise. Attend your spiritual gatherings and converse with
each other in love and praise.Without entering sleep or losing consciousness6 repose
beneath deep shade in most peaceful refuge6 nearness to the All-Majestic One. Visit
the holy waters of Paradise: the upwelling spring of Kawthar; the fragrant spring of
Kafur6 where servants of Allah drink ecstatically6 the spring of Clairty; the resonant
fountain of Tasnim6 where souls of nearness drink; the healing springs of Salsabil and
Zanjabil. Immerse yourselves in these waters and Duench your spiritual thirst with
them. This will be the bliss of union6 the height of mystical return.

Thereupon6 recline on green cushions and rich carpets placed on raised couches in
expansive shade6 where water gushes forth and fruits of wisdom abound6 unrestricted
and inexhaustible.c
