بسم اللّه الرّحمن الرّحيم

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate


"Send him [Joseph] with us [the brothers] tomorrow, to frolic and play; surely we shall be watching over him" (Q.12:12, tr. Arberry).




[Ṭā-Hā-Mīm = T-H-M. Abjad = 9+5+40= 54].

[4] Blessed be He Who, no God is there except Him. In His hands is the Cause [matter, affair] (al-amr). He is indeed God Who hath ever been Powerful over all things. [5] We indeed ordained that which is   for every life (`amr) .... [6] This perchance the people might be informed that the Gate of God (bab Allah) [the Bab] is indeed the True One (al-haqq). And He is God who hath ever been a Witness (shahid an) of the true believers (al-mum'minin). [7] He is indeed the one who made the sun and the moon (al-shams wa'l-qamar) to be two flashing lights of fire (husbanan min al-nar)  and We decreed for these twain in accordance with the Book of the Cause [Command] (kitab al-amr), as accords with the waystations of destiny [omnipotence]  (manazil al-qadir), which are, in truth, in very truth (`ala al-haqq bi'l-haqq), equitably placed (ta`dil an) at the midmost heart of the [Sinaitic] Fire (qutb al-nar),  [8]
