THE FOURTH POINT
The Divine Name Single
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
Say: He is God, the One and Only.(112:1)
[One fine point of this verse and a manifestation of the divine name of Single, which is a greatest name comprising the names of One and Unique, or one of the six lights comprising the greatest name, appeared to me in Eskişehir Prison in the month of Shawwal. Referring the details of that greatest manifestation to the Risale-i Nur, we shall here explain extremely briefly in seven short Indications the true affirmation of divine unity which the name of Single demonstrates through its maximum manifestation.]
The Twenty-Second Word and Thirty-Third Letter have shown in detail that through a greatest manifestation, the greatest name Single has placed a seal, a stamp, of divine unity on the universe as a whole and on each realm of beings in it, and on each individual being. Here, we shall point out only three stamps.
F i r s t S t a m p : The manifestation of divine singleness has placed a seal of unity on the face of the universe whereby it has made it an indivisible whole. One who does not have power of disposal over the whole universe cannot be the true owner of any part of it. The seal is this:
Like the finest machinery in a factory, the beings and realms of beings in the universe assist one another and work to complete each other’s functions. With their solidarity and co-operation, their answering each other’s requests and hastening to assist to each other, their embracing each other and being one within the other, they form a unity of existence according to which, like the members of the human body, they cannot be separated from each other. A person who controls one of its members yet does not have control over all of them, will not have true mastery over the single member.
Thus, this co-operation, solidarity, mutual response, and embracing one another forms a most brilliant supreme seal of divine unity.
S e c o n d S t a m p : Through the manifestation of the name Single, so brilliant a seal of divine oneness and stamp of unity has been placed on
