Thirty-Third Window

Praise be to God, Who has revealed to His servant the Book, and has allowed no crookedness therein.1 Alif. Lam. Ra. A Book which We have revealed to you, in order that you might lead mankind out of darkness into light.2

Think of all the Windows we have mentioned as being a few drops from the ocean of the Qur’an, then you will be able to compare how many lights of Divine unity like the water of life the Qur’an contains. But even if the Qur’an, the source and origin and fountain of all those Windows, is considered in an extremely brief and simple manner, it still forms a most brilliant, luminous, comprehensive Window. To see how certain and shining and luminous this Window is, we refer you to the Treatise on the Miraculousness of the Qur’an, the Twenty-Fifth Word, and to the Eighteenth Sign of the Nineteenth Letter. And beseeching the Merciful Throne of the All-Glorious One, Who sent us the Qur’an, we say:

Oh our Sustainer! Do not take us to task if we forget or unwittingly do wrong!3 Oh our Sustainer! Let not our hearts deviate now after You have guided us!4 Oh our Sustainer! Accept this from us; indeed You are the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing!5 And turn unto us; for You are the Oft-Returning, Most Compassionate.6
