Chapter Summary

The beginning of the creation of all things at this instant, which is a Friday, has taken place through the words God has uttered. His Holiness, the Lord of Glory, brought this new creation into being through His own decree and caused it to rest beneath His shadow in order that it may return to Him. God is the Reckoner of the number of souls who had believed in the religion of the Qurʾān. And at the moment of return, out of all these souls, there was only one soul in God's presence, who became the number of All Things; and the creation of all things took place in a second creation at the command of God, the Exalted. Wherefore, watch over your souls, O people of the Bayān, lest you be veiled from God your Lord, though you desire day and night to sanctify yourselves.
