DISCOURSE OF STARS

Listen to the stars and heed their beautiful sermons,
See what is written in these luminous missives of Wisdom:
They are all delivering together this fruitful discourse:
Each of us is a radiant proof
for the majestic Sovereignty of an All-Powerful One of glory.
We bear witness to the existence of the Maker
and also to His Unity and Power.
We are His subtle miracles gilding the face of the skies,
for the angels to make excursions on.
We are the innumerable discerning eyes of the heavens
directed to Paradise, and overseeing the earth.
We are the exquisite fruits
attached to the heavenly branch of the tree of creation;
and to the twigs of the Milky Way, attached by
the hand of wisdom of the Majestic, All-Gracious Being.
For the inhabitants of the heavens, we are traveling mosques,
revolving houses and exalted homes,
light-diffusing lamps, mighty ships, planes.
We are miracles of the Power of the All-Powerful One of Perfection,
the All-Wise One of Majesty;
each of us is a wonder of His creative art, a rarity of His Wisdom,
a marvel of His creation, a world of light.
To the man who is truly human,
we present hundreds of thousands of proofs
in hundreds of thousands of tongues;
The eye of the atheist, may it be blind, never sees our faces,
nor do his ears hear our speech; we are signs that speak the truth.
On us is the same stamp and seal.
We obey our Lord and glorify Him, and mention Him in worship.
We are ecstatic lovers in the widest circle of the Milky Way,
the circle reciting our Lordís Names.
