"Certain women that were in the city said, 'The Governor's wife has been soliciting her page; he smote her heart with love; we see her in manifest error." (Q. 12: 29 trans. Arberry). 




[Abjad =1+30+40+8+90 = 169]

[4]  The Dhikr (Remembrance) of the Mercy of thy Lord is in the Praiseworthy Word (kalimat al-hamid), And God hath ever been Powerful over All Things (kull shay'). [5]


يا كلمتة الاكبر

O Thou the Supreme Word of God!

لاتخف و لاتحزن فانّا قد ضمّنا لاهل اجابتك من الرّجال و النّسإ غفران الذّنوب ممّا قد احاط به علم المحبوب كما قد شئت علی الحقّ و انّ اللّه قد كان بكلّ شیء عليماً ه و لعمری اقبل الیّ و لاتخف انّك انت العلیّ فی الملأ الاعلی و قد كان سرّك علی لوح العالمين من حول النّار مسطوراً ه

"Fear not, nor be Thou grieved, for indeed unto such as have responded to Thy Call, whether men or women, We have assured forgiveness of sins, as known in the presence of the Best Beloved and in conformity with what Thou desirest. Verily His knowledge embraceth all things. I adjure Thee by My life, set Thy face towards Me and be not apprehensive. Verily Thou art the Exalted One among the Celestial Concourse (al-mala' al-a`la), and Thy hidden Mystery (sirr) hath, of a truth, been recorded upon the Tablet of creation [lawh al-`alamin) in the midst of the Burning Bush (min hawl al-nar).

و لسوف يعطيل ربّك حكما لكل بما قد كان حكمه علی العالمين محيطاً ه

Ere long God will bestow upon Thee rulership over all men, inasmuch as His rule transcendeth the whole of creation" (SWB: 55; trans. Taherzadeh,et. al; Chapter XXXI).
