“O QURRATU’L-‘AYN! We have, verily, dilated Thine …”

O QURRATU’L-‘AYN! 1 We have, verily, dilated Thine heart in this Revelation, which stands truly unique from all created things, and have exalted Thy name through the manifestation of the Báb, so that men may become aware of Our transcendent power, and recognize that God is immeasurably sanctified above the praise of all men. He is verily independent of the whole of creation. Chapter XXIII.
1. In these passages of the Qayyúmu’l-Asmá the name Qurratu’l-‘Ayn (Solace of the Eyes) refers to the Báb Himself.   [ Back To Reference]
