{ وَمَا جَعَلَهُ ٱللَّهُ إِلاَّ بُشْرَىٰ لَكُمْ وَلِتَطْمَئِنَّ قُلُوبُكُمْ بِهِ وَمَا ٱلنَّصْرُ إِلاَّ مِنْ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلْحَكِيمِ }

What God ordained was only as a good tiding to you and that your hearts might be at peace. Victory comes only from God the Mighty the Wise.

By these the ties of their deeper knowledge ʿirfān are strengthened and the realities of their cer- tainty yaqīn are confirmed. He sent down this address according to this practice sunna.
