* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ ٱلَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ ٱللَّهَ قِيَاماً وَقُعُوداً وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ رَبَّنَآ مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ }

Those who remember God, in all states and in all configurations, standing, at the station of the spirit witnessing, and sitting, at the locus of the heart [remembering Him] through unveilings, and on their sides, that is, in their fluctuations at the place of the soul by means of the struggle, and reflect, with their pith, that is, their intellects pure of the blemishes of estimation, upon the creation of, the world of spirits and bodies, saying [the following] upon the witnessing: 'Our Lord, You have not created this, creation, as falsehood, that is, as something other than You, for what is other than the truth is falsehood; rather You have made it to be Your Names and the loci for the manifestations of Your attributes. Glory be to You!: we exalt You above that there should be anything other than You, that is, that anything should be compared to Your uniqueness or that it should duplicate Your Oneness. So guard us against the chastisement, of the fire of being veiled by engendered things from Your acts and by the acts from Your attributes and by Your attributes from Your Essence, an absolute guarding that is complete and sufficient.
