I give and I don't take *** for the annihilation of your eye, so bend over
about something like this and ask *** for an order on him build
The eye of survival and don't be *** by what you call me
God Almighty said: Do not ask about things that, if they appear to you, will trouble you.
[ That survival and annihilation are added .]
Know that survival and annihilation do not make sense in this way except with the addition of annihilation from such and such and survival with such and that annihilation from God is not correct at all, for there is no then but Him, for necessity leads you back to Him. That your annihilation is only from you, and it does not vanish from you until you vanish from all universes and objects, I mean the annihilation of the people of God. To the like of this, God always gives, so the servant must always be accepting, so do not ask if you are among the people of God except for a divine command, I mean by appointment. Otherwise, ask God of His bounty without specifying.
[ The manifestations of the truth are of two types .]
And know that the manifestations of the truth are of two kinds, a transfiguration that separates you from you and your rulings, and a transcendence that keeps you with you and with your rulings, and one of your rulings is the adherence to etiquette in giving and giving. For one of the servants of God, the All-Knowing has not commanded matters except when he knows that the will has an effect on matters, and the discussion of the fulfillment of the commandments will be mentioned in the last chapter of this book, God willing, and God says the truth and He guides the way.
The four hundred and thirty-fourth chapter on knowing how to contend with him does not block you if you wish, for I do not wish yet, so prove it.
The will is the throne of the Essence, it has no apparent proportion or effect in others
And it is existence, there is no eye other than it *** It perishes and perishes, neither perishes nor scattered
Izzat, so he does not see her authority as a king *** and does not perceive her in the form of human beings
That Adam is specific in his image *** because in him the whole universe is brief
He has the reins in all the universes *** He has the revelations, the verses and the surahs
So whoever brings it down is that he says, We will see it *** in a form that is the sun of truth or the moon
With disregard for the likeness of our Creator *** and I whale him to what the images have said
God Almighty said: What alters the saying I have, and if it opposes it, and what is in lineage is more amazing than it to accompany, if it had an effect, it would not have an effect, it is a strange letter
[ Adam s specialization in the caliphate is only by will ]
Know that Adam was not singled out for the caliphate except by will, and if he wanted to make it among those who made it from his creation, we said it is not correct to be except in the name of the perfect man, and if he combined it in other than man from the creatures, that collector would be the eye of the perfect man, he is the caliph on which he was created. It suffices us to say a way, for if he was the eye of the Caliph, then he would not be upon him, then he must be one who collects the forms of the world and the image of the truth. This association will have a caliph in the world for the sake of the apparent name . There is in the perfect man what is not in the one and the same from the world, so it is by will except in the human species, because this type has successors, then it affects everyone, so he asks the truth to extend it and extends it, and this is an effect on the real image, and he also asks for the order in the world, so it passes, then it affects him from The scholar and from the truth, so the matter became confused and the people of God became confused, so some of the knowers asked to get out of this confusion.
You owned me, the king of Khosrau, when you reigned. Be ***, so I was king, and I was not
But I was and the universe was a kingdom *** and every universe was yours, the universe was not
