“VERILY such as ridicule the wondrous, divine Verses …”

VERILY such as ridicule the wondrous, divine Verses revealed through His Remembrance, are but making themselves the objects of ridicule, and We, in truth, aid them to wax in their iniquity. 1 Indeed God’s knowledge transcendeth all created things…
The infidels, of a truth, seek to separate God from His Remembrance, 2 but God hath determined to perfect His Light 3 through His Remembrance, and indeed He is potent over all things…
Verily, Christ is Our Word which We communicated unto Mary; 4 and let no one say what the Christians term 61 as ‘the third of three’, 5 inasmuch as it would amount to slandering the Remembrance Who, as decreed in the Mother Book, is invested with supreme authority. Indeed God is but one God, and far be it from His glory that there should be aught else besides Him. All those who shall attain unto Him on the Day of Resurrection are but His servants, and God is, of a truth, a sufficient Protector. Verily I am none other but the servant of God and His Word, and none but the first one to bow down in supplication before God, the Most Exalted; and indeed God witnesseth all things. Chapter LXI.
