Thirdly: ‘The Day of Judgement’ (Yawm al-Din) alludes to a vast and powerful proof of the resurrection of the dead, but a situation has arisen here causing the postponement of that proof to another time. Perhaps too, no need remains for it. For various parts of the Risale-i Nur have proved with hundreds of powerful arguments that the morning and spring of the resurrection of the dead and Great Gathering will occur as certainly as day follows night and spring follows winter.
FIFTH PHRASE: ‘You alone do we worship and from You alone do we seek help.’
It occurred to me that before pointing out the proof contained in this phrase, I should relate a true journey of the imagination which is described in the Twenty-Ninth Letter. It was like this:
As is explained in the Risale-i Nur, and especially in the Qur’anic commentary, Signs of Miraculousness (Isharat al-I‘jaz) and The Eight Symbols (Rumûz-u Semâniye), one time when I was seeking out the Qur’an’s miracles I found four or five miraculous predictions at the end of Sura al-Fath and an historical miracle in the verse: This day We shall save you in your body,1 and even flashes of miraculousness in numerous other words and sometimes miraculous points in letters. Then, when reciting Sura al-Fatiha during the prayers, a question occurred to me in order to inform me of a miracle in the Nun of na‘budu and nasta‘in ([You alone] do we worship [and from You alone] do we seek help).
Why was it not “You alone do I worship and from You alone do I seek help,” rather than the first person plural, that is, “We worship You and We seek help from You”? Suddenly the broad arena of a journey of the imagination opened up through the door of that “Nun” (we). I understood experientially the mighty mystery and vast benefits of praying in congregation, and that this single letter is a miracle, and I actually saw this. It was as follows:
At that time while performing the prayers in Bayezid Mosque in Istanbul, I said: “You alone do we worship and from You alone do we seek help.” I looked and saw that the congregation in the mosque was saying “Guide us!” the same as me; its members were all participating in my supplication, corroborating it. Then another veil was drawn back. I saw that all the mosques in Istanbul had as though become a huge Bayezid Mosque. All their congregations were exclaiming: “You alone do we worship and from You alone do we seek help” like me, setting their seals on my assertions and entreaties, and saying “Amen!” to them.
