“O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!…”

O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!
Verily I read thy new letter and was informed of its meanings, which proved thy lowliness to thy Glorious Lord.
Verily we promised thee, by the favor of thy Lord, last year, that thy Lord would grant thee “sight of eyes” (i.e., a son), a blessed birth. Thanks and praise be unto God for that He granted thee a good descendant and dilated thy breast by this great bounty. It is incumbent on thee to offer many thanks to the Merciful Lord for this great favor in the world of humanity. Verily I implore unto God to make him a 123 sign of His Kingdom, illuminated, spiritual and god-like among the children.
