“The Almighty beareth witness that there is none other God besides Him.”

What follows is my provisional translation of a Tablet from Baháʼuʼlláh, the original text of which is published in Áthár-i-Qalam-i-Aʻlá, vol. 7, p. 43.

In His Name, the Imperishable, the Ever-Abiding

The Almighty beareth witness that there is none other God besides Him. He hath ever dwelled in the sublime realm of majesty and might, and ever abided in the lofty heights of exaltedness. The hosts of the world are powerless to deter Him. He summoneth, through His magnificent Name, all the peoples of the world to His Supreme Horizon and His Most Glorious Realm. Exalted is He, the Lord of Names, Who doeth as He willeth through His sovereignty and ordaineth as He pleaseth through His power. In His right hand, He holdeth the kingdoms of earth and heaven, and in His grasp are the dominions of revelation and creation. There is none other God but Him, the Exalted, the Expounder, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

بِسْمِهِ الْبَاقِي اَلدَّائِمِ

شَهِدَ اللَّهُ اَنَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ. لَمْ يَزَلْ کَانَ فِيْ عُلُوِّ الْعَظَمَةِ وَ الْاِقْتِدَارِ وَ سُمُوِّ الرِّفْعَةِ وَ الْاِرْتِفَاعِ. لَا تَمْنَعُهُ جُنُودُ الْعَالَمِ. يَدْعَو بِاسْمِهِ الْأَعْظَمِ کُلَّ الْاُمَمِ إِلَی اُفُقِهِ الْأَعْلَى وَ مَنْظَرِهِ الْأَبْهَى. تَعَالَی مَوْلَى الْاَسْمَاءِ يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ بِسُلْطَانِهِ وَ يَحْکُمُ مَا يُرِيدُ بِقُدْرَتِهِ. و فِيْ يَمِينِهِ مَلَکُوتُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَ الْاَرْضِ وَ فِيْ قَبْضَتِهِ جَبَرُوتُ الْاَمْرِ وَ الْخَلْقِ. لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمُتَعَالِی الْمُبَيِّنِ الْعَلِيمِ الْحَکِيمِ
