Say: God sufficeth all things above all things, and nothing in the heavens or in the earth or in whatever lieth between them but God, thy Lord, sufficeth. Verily, He is in Himself the Knower, the Sustainer, the Omnipotent.

The Báb

قُلِ اللهُ يَكْفِي كُلَّ شَيْءٍ عَنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلَا يَكْفِي عَنِ اللهِ رَبِّكَ مِنْ شَيْءٍ لَا فِي السَّموَاتِ وَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِنَّهُ كَانَ عَلَّاماً كَافِياً قَدِيراً
