Second Station of the Fourteenth Flash
While this treatise was a part of the book The Flashes, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi included it in The Words following the "First Word" because it is about the "Basmalah" (In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Mercy Giver."
"A bright light from “In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Mercy Giver” concerning Divine Mercy appeared to my dull mind from afar. I wanted to record it for myself in the form of notes, and to hunt it down and capture it, and circumscribe the light with twenty to thirty secrets. But unfortunately, I was not able to do this at the present time and the twenty or thirty secrets were reduced to five or six.
When I say: "Oh, man!", I mean myself. And while this lesson is directed particularly to my own soul, I refer it as the Second Station of the Fourteenth Flash for the approval of my meticulous brothers in the hope that it may benefit those with whom I am connected spiritually and whose souls are more prudent than mine. This lesson looks to the heart more than the mind, and regards spiritual pleasure rather than rational proofs."
