universe; and in respect of life all beings with spirits are stamps of divine oneness; and the embroideries and art in every living being form a seal of eternal besoughtedness; and living creatures set their signatures with their lives on the missive of the universe in the name of the Ever-Living and Self-Subsistent One to their number, and are seals of divine unity, stamps of divine oneness, and signets of divine eternal besoughtedness. Similarly, just as all living beings are seals of divine unity in this book of the universe, like life; so a seal of divine oneness has been placed of the faces and features of each.
Furthermore, just as life forms signatures and seals testifying to the unity of the Ever-Living and Self-Subsistent One to the number of its particulars and of animate beings, the act of raising and restoring to life also puts signatures to divine unity to the number of beings. For example, the raising to life of the earth, which is a single individual, testifies to divine unity as brilliantly as the sun. For in the raising to life of the earth in spring, three hundred thousand species and the species’ innumerable individual members are restored to life one within the other, without fault or defect, in perfect, regular order. The one who performs a single act such as that together with innumerable other orderly acts must surely be the Creator of all beings and the Ever-Living and Self-Subsistent One, and the Single One of Unity any partnership in whose dominicality is impossible.
For now, this small number of life’s properties has been described briefly, and we refer the explanation and detailed discussion of its other properties to the Risale-i Nur and to another time.
