Tablet of Visitation
The praise which hath dawned from Thy most august Self, and the glory which hath shone forth
from Thy most effulgent Beauty, rest upon Thee, O Thou Who art the Manifestation of Grandeur,
and the King of Eternity, and the Lord of all who are in heaven and on earth! I testify that through
Thee the sovereignty of God and His dominion, and the majesty of God and His grandeur, were
revealed, and the Daystars of ancient splendor have shed their radiance in the heaven of Thine
irrevocable decree, and the Beauty of the Unseen hath shone forth above the horizon of creation.
I testify, moreover, that with but a movement of Thy Pen Thine injuction “Be Thou” hath been
enforced, and God’s hidden Secret hath been divulged, and all created things have been called
into being, and all the Revelations have been sent down.
I bear witness, moreover, that through Thy beauty the beauty of the Adored One hath been
unveiled, and through Thy face the face of the Desired One hath shone forth, and that through a
word from Thee Thou hast decided between all created things, causing them who are devoted to
Thee to ascend unto the summit of glory, and the infidels to fall into the lowest abyss.
I bear witness that he who hath known Thee hath known God, and he who hath attained unto Thy
presence hath attained unto the presence of God. Great, therefore, is the blessedness of him who
hath believed in Thee, and in Thy signs, and hath humbled himself before Thy sovereignty, and
hath been honored with meeting Thee, and hath attained the good pleasure of Thy will, and
circled around Thee, and stood before Thy throne. Woe betide him that hath transgressed against
Thee, and hath denied Thee, and repudiated Thy signs, and gainsaid Thy sovereignty, and risen up
against Thee, and waxed proud before Thy face, and hath disputed Thy testimonies, and fled from
Thy rule and Thy dominion, and been numbered with the infidels whose names have been
inscribed by the fingers of Thy behest upon Thy holy Tablets.
Waft, then, unto me, O my God and my Beloved, from the right hand of Thy mercy and Thy loving-
kindness, the holy breaths of Thy favors, that they may draw me away from myself and from the
world unto the courts of Thy nearness and Thy presence. Potent art Thou to do what pleaseth
Thee. Thou, truly, hast been supreme over all things.
The remembrance of God and His praise, and the glory of God and His splendor, rest upon Thee, O
Thou Who art His Beauty! I bear witness that the eye of creation hath never gazed upon one
wronged like Thee. Thou wast immersed all the days of Thy life beneath an ocean of tribulations.
At one time Thou wast in chains and fetters; at another Thou wast threatened by the sword of
Thine enemies. Yet, despite all this, Thou didst enjoin upon all men to observe what had been
prescribed unto Thee by Him Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
May my spirit be a sacrifice to the wrongs Thou didst suffer, and my soul be a ransom for the
adversities Thou didst sustain. I beseech God, by Thee and by them whose faces have been
illumined with the splendors of the light of Thy countenance, and who, for love of Thee, have
observed all whereunto they were bidden, to remove the veils that have come in between Thee
and Thy creatures, and to supply me with the good of this world and the world to come. Thou art,
in truth, the Almighty, the Most Exalted, the All-Glorious, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most
Bless Thou, O Lord my God, the Divine Lote-Tree and its leaves, and its boughs, and its branches,
and its stems, and its offshoots, as long as Thy most excellent titles will endure and Thy most
august attributes will last. Protect it, then, from the mischief of the aggressor and the hosts of
tyranny. Thou art, in truth, the Almighty, the Most Powerful. Bless Thou, also, O Lord my God, Thy
servants and Thy handmaidens who have attained unto Thee. Thou, truly, art the All-Bountiful,
Whose grace is infinite. No God is there save Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.
