Verily, it is enjoined upon you to offer a feast,
once in every month, though only water be served; for
God hath purposed to bind hearts together, albeit
through both earthly and heavenly means.
Beware lest the desires of the flesh and of a corrupt
inclination provoke divisions among you. Be ye as the
fingers of one hand, the members of one body. Thus
counselleth you the Pen of Revelation, if ye be of them
Consider the mercy of God and His gifts. He
enjoineth upon you that which shall profit you, though
He Himself can well dispense with all creatures. Your
evil doings can never harm Us, neither can your good
works profit Us. We summon you wholly for the sake
of God. To this every man of understanding and
insight will testify.
If ye should hunt with beasts or birds of prey,
invoke ye the Name of God when ye send them to
pursue their quarry; for then whatever they catch shall
be lawful unto you, even should ye find it to have died.
He, verily, is the Omniscient, the All-Informed. Take
heed, however, that ye hunt not to excess. Tread ye the
path of justice and equity in all things. Thus biddeth
you He Who is the Dawning-place of Revelation,
would that ye might comprehend.
