“O thou who art always calling on God!…”

O thou who art always calling on God!
Thank thou God for He hath guided thee to the path of His Kingdom and provided thee with the fruit of the Tree of Life, which is planted in the middle of the Ferdowee (i.e., the highest Paradise). Yea, this fruit is the knowing God and love for God, and reliance upon God and is the virtue with which the reality of man is adorned, and it is the perfections which are the great gift for the children of Adam (i.e., mankind) in this first creation.
Verily, I beg of God to bestow upon thee and thy relatives the blessing of His clemency and to assign for 517 thee and for them everlasting glory and eternal life in the visible world and in the Kingdom.
