Daily Reflection – 5 ‘Ilm (Knowledge)
October 20, 2018 - October 21, 2018
“Say: The measure of all created things hath been appointed in this concealed and manifest Temple, wherein lie enshrined the knowledge of the heavens and the earth, and of all things past and future. The finger of God’s handiwork hath inscribed upon this Tablet that which the wisest and most learned of men are powerless to fathom, and hath created therein temples inscrutable to all save His own Self, could ye but apprehend this truth.
“Blessed be the one who readeth it, who pondereth its contents, and who is numbered with them that comprehend!”
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, 1.43, p. 22)
Every star hath a setting, but the star of the knowledge of God in the divine heaven; every light shall darken save the light of the guidance of God; every dignity shall vanish away save the glory under the shadow of the Word of God.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v1, p. 128)
