NATURE ANNOUNCES DIVINE EXISTENCE AND UNITY IN AN INFINITE VARIETY OF LANGUAGES

Every tree in blossom is an ode rhythmic and well-composed,

singing the high and manifest praises of the Creator.

Or it is something with multiple eyes opened to watch,

and cause others to watch the wonders of the Maker’s art displayed.

Or it has clothed its members in green for their festival

so that its Lord may observe His illustrious works and gifts upon it,

while itself displays in the display-hall-the earth-

the embellishments of His Mercy before the eyes of mankind,

thereby proclaiming the wisdom in its creation,

in that significant treasuries are stored in it

by the Grace and Generosity of the Sustainer of its fruits:

Glory be to Him, how generous His favoring,

How clear arguments for Him, how manifest are His proofs!

The imagination sees that angels are clothed in bodies from the (branches of) these trees resembling thousands of flutes, from these flutes are heard songs of praises of the All-Living One. The leaves are each a tongue reciting, ‘He, no god but He’.

Say: O God, the Master of the Kingdom, You give kingdom to whomever You wish and withdraw kingdom from whomever You wish.

All things always utter, O Truth; all of them announce, O All-Living One; all together they proclaim, God.
