“O ḤUSAYN! God grant thou shalt ever be bright and…”

O ḤUSAYN! God grant thou shalt ever be bright and radiant, beaming with the light of the Sun of Truth, and 235 mayest unloose thy tongue in magnifying the Name of God, which is the most laudable of all acts.
Consider the multitude of souls who seemed to be intensely eager and athirst, yet when the Ocean of living waters did surge forth in the world of being, they remained deprived thereof, inasmuch as they failed to relinquish idle fancy and to become consciously aware of Him Who is the Object of all knowledge. This failure is in recompense for the deeds their hands had formerly wrought.
Render thou thanks unto the Beloved of the world for having graciously aided thee to attain confirmation in this glorious Cause. Entreat Him moreover to make His loved ones steadfast therein, for the inflammatory writings of the mischief-makers are widespread and the clamour of the foreboders of evil is raised high. Happy are they that have cast behind their backs all else save God and have held fast unto that which the Lord of strength and power hath enjoined upon them.
His Glory be upon thee and upon such as have been enabled to recognize and embrace this mighty Cause.
