The Second Chapter
God’s Final, Conclusive Argument
This treatise consists of eleven proofs for belief.
The First Proof: The Supreme Sign
This consists of the observations (in nineteen steps) of a traveler who questions the universe concerning their Creator.
In the Name of God, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate.
The seven heavens and the earth, and whoever is therein, glorify Him. There is nothing but it glorifies Him with His praise (proclaiming that He alone is God, without peer or partner, and all praise belongs to Him exclusively), but you cannot comprehend their glorification. Surely He is All-Clement, All-Forgiving. (17:44)
