The Second Station
of the Twenty-Second Word
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
God is the Creator of all things, and He is the Guardian and Disposer of all affairs. To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth.1 So glory to Him in Whose hands is the sovereignty of all things, and to Him will you all be brought back.2 And there is not a thing but its sources and treasures inexhaustible are with Us; but We only send down thereof in due and ascertainable measures.3 There is not a moving creature, but He has grasp of its forelock. Verily it is my Sustainer that is on a Straight Path.4
[In my treatise entitled Katre, which is about belief in God, the principal pole of the pillars of belief, I explained in brief the evidence to Almighty God’s existence and unity given by all beings through fifty-five tongues. Also, in the treatise Nokta, I mentioned four universal proofs out of the evidences of Almighty God’s existence and unity each of which has the strength of a thousand proofs. Moreover, since I have discussed in around twelve of my Arabic treatises hundreds of decisive proofs demonstrating Almighty God’s necessary existence and unity, I shall be content with those and not now undertake any profound investigations. Only, I shall try to explain in this Twenty-Second Word, twelve ‘Flashes’ from the sun of belief in God which I have written briefly in other places in the Risale-i Nur. ]
