* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ وَإِذَا سَمِعُواْ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ تَرَىۤ أَعْيُنَهُمْ تَفِيضُ مِنَ ٱلدَّمْعِ مِمَّا عَرَفُواْ مِنَ ٱلْحَقِّ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ آمَنَّا فَٱكْتُبْنَا مَعَ ٱلشَّاهِدِينَ }

you see their eyes overflow with tears, in yearning for what they recognise of the affirmation of the unity of the essence, for they were folk who practiced spiritual discipline and [experienced] the tasting. Thus their souls were excited upon the hearing of the revelation and the mention of the unity; because of what they recognise of the Truth, by way of His attributes, or of what they heard of the Truth by way of His words and so they wept out of longing, as is said [by the poet]:

'And he weeps yearning for them when they move afar; yet he [also] weeps when they come near for fear of separation'.

[They say, 'Our Lord] we believe, in the unity of [Your] essence, with an entified faith, so make us of, the witnesses, those who are present, whose station is the presential vision of the essence and the true certainty and the certain cognitive faith, so appoint us among the eyewitnesses.
