“O thou who art controlled by the attraction of the Holy…”

O thou who art controlled by the attraction of the Holy fragrances of the gardens of God’s Kingdom!
Thy brilliant letter, which thou hast sent by the beloved ….…., was read by me. The bounty is of God for that He hath inspired thee with the word of fidelity and chosen thee from among those who are called, whether men or women. Therefore, thank thou thy Lord at morn and eve and glorify His praise for this favor. Verily a great favor is bestowed upon thee!
Our dear friend ….….. hath arrived. He praises the beloved of God and His maid-servants and adorns the ears with the pearls of praiseworthy actions and good qualities of the elect and the faithful.
I supplicate God to enable him and every one else to serve Him in the garden of El-Abha and to help thee to be gentle, humble and submissive; to reveal Himself upon thee with the attributes of the Merciful and to grant thee a heavenly table at all times.
