race. So how could they discover the non-physical features of its abilities, which are a hundred times more wondrous than its physical features.
We said at the beginning that existence, life, and mercy are the most important truths in the universe and that the most important station is theirs. Therefore, one reason for the comprehensive truth of life looking with all its fine points and subtleties to the divine will and wish and mercy, which are particular to God Almighty, is this:
Since life together with all its faculties is the source and means of thanks and worship, laws and monotony – which are a veil to God’s will, and apparent intermediaries – which screen His mercy, have not been placed on it. Almighty God has two manifestations in the physical and non-physical features of unborn children.
One shows divine unity, oneness, and eternal besoughtedness, for the child testifies to divine unity by being similar to other human beings in respect of its basic members and human faculties. With this tongue it shouts out: “Whoever gave me these features and members is the Maker of all human beings, for they resemble me in regard to basic members, and He is the Maker too of all living beings.”
This tongue of the child in the womb does not pertain to the Unseen; it may be known since it follows a law and general rule and the species. It is a branch and tongue of the Manifest World that has entered the World of the Unseen.
The Second Aspect: With the tongue of the features of its particular capacity and its individual features, it proclaims its Maker’s choice, will and wish and particular mercy and that He is under no restriction. But this tongue comes from the deepest Unseen; none other than Pre-Eternal Knowledge can see it before it comes into existence, nor comprehend it. These features cannot be known while in the womb even if one or other of the child’s thousand members is seen!
I n S h o r t : The features of the embryo’s innate capacity and its physical features offer both evidence for divine unity and proofs of divine will and choice. If Almighty God grants success, a number of further points shall be written about “the five hidden things.” But for now I have no more time and my condition does not permit it, so I conclude here.
The Enduring One, He is the Enduring One!
