In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

God indeed did send down the Book (al-kitab) unto him, in Truth, in very Truth, a clarification (tibyan) of all things as well as  a Mercy (rahmat) and an expression of Good-News (bushra) unto all the worlds [of God]. [5] Praised be unto God Who, in very Truth, sent down the Book (al-kitab) unto Our Word (kalimat). This to the end that the people might recollect [celebrate, make mention of]  (mazkur an) this Bab (Gate) [mentioned] in the Mother [Archetypal] Book (umm al-kitab)nigh the [Sinaitic] Fire. [6] This is indeed Our Book (al-kitab) which, in very Truth, crieth out unto thee though most of the people do not believe in God and in His verses [signs] sent, in very Truth, unto that Bab (Gate). And God is indeed witness unto all things.


O servants of the All-Merciful!

We indeed, with the permission of God, gave thee the Good-News of the Greatest Dhikr-Remembrance of God through, in Truth, in very Truth, a decree of the Ancient One (hukm al-qadim) about that Bab (Gate), a matter [Cause] which is indeed  weighty (amr an thaqil an). [8] Wherefore was it that what God intended for thee, in thy [eschatological] Day, is obedience before God (al-ata`a Allah), the True One, in accordance, in Truth, in very Truth, with His Cause [Command) (li-amr-ihi) which is a recompense (thawab an) Upright (qawwim) before God, the Ancient One (al-qadim).
