Um Gengis Khan

Saga Gengis Khan var sg  myndinni Mongol sem kom t fyrir nokkru.g gat ekki htt a lesa 29. kafla bkarinnar "Muhammad and the Course of Islm" grkvldi ur en g fr a sofa. Hann fjallai um Gengis Khan og hans eftirmenn og hvernig eir hldu innrei sna inn islamska heimsveldi. Hr fyrir nean hef g vitna byrjun essa kafla sem segir fr v hvernig Gengis Khan hefndi daua erindreka sinna og kaupmanna r rki snu sem soldninn 'Ali'd-Dn Muhammad og landstjri hans ltu myra.

Islm at Bay

Timujin, the son of a petty Mongol chieftain, was a boy in his early teens when his father died. For many years he had to fight to secure his patrimony; but he achieved even more, for he united the tribes of Mongolia under his own rule. In the year 1206, by general acclaim, Timujin took the name and title of Chingiz Khan.[1] Next, he set about extending his empire eastwards, and eventually conquered northern China.[2] By then (1215), he was nearly fifty years of age -- he was born in 1167 -- and had been campaigning since the age of thirteen. To his west lay the empire of the kings of Kharazm -- the Kharazmshahs.


[1 Variously written in English as Jenghiz and Genghiz, it means the Perfect Warrior.]
[2 The Chin Empire. The Sung Empire of southern China was overrun in 1279, during the reign of the famous Qubilay Qa'an (Kubla Khan).]

At one time in Transoxania, the Qarakhata'i or the Gurkhaniyyih kingdom, together with the smaller principality of the Al-i- Khaqan or the Al-i-Afrasiyab (based on Samarqand) formed buffer states which separated the territory of Chingiz Khan from the domains of the Kharazmshahs. Their Turkish rulers were renowned for their justice and patronage of learning and poetry, but Sultan 'Alai'd-Din Muhammad, the Kharazmshah, wantonly destroyed them. Thus his frontiers became contiguous with the frontiers of the Mongols.

Chingiz Khan apprised Sultan 'Alai'd-Din Muhammad of the fact that he had overrun China, and was now a mighty and powerful ruler; but he was weary of warfare and wanted to be at peace with his western neighbour. He hoped that trade between his people and those of Kharazm would flourish. Though somewhat riled that Chingiz Khan had addressed him as his son, 'Alai'd-Din Muhammad responded appropriately to this expression of good will. However, when four Muslim traders from Mongolia arrived at Utrar, a frontier town, its avaricious governor, coveting their riches, accused them of espionage, threw them into prison, robbed them of their possessions and, to compound his felony, put them to death. Chingiz was naturally furious, but he kept calm and sent a deputation to the court of the Kharazmshah to obtain redress. The arrogant Sultan Muhammad responded stupidly and abominably by executing the head of the deputation and sending back the rest to Chingiz Khan with their beards shaved off. Chingiz moved quickly to avenge the blood of innocent people and the insult so grotesquely rendered to his own person. His Mongol hordes descended mercilessly upon the realm of Islam.

The first to taste the wrath of Chingiz was the governor of Utrar, who had murdered harmless merchants for the love of silver and gold. Molten silver was poured down his throat.

(H.M. Balyuzi, Muhammad and the Course of Islam, p. 329 - 331)

Gu og speglarnir

SpeglarUm daginn var g a lesa bkinni Summons of the Lord of Hosts, sem er samansafn rita eftir Bah'u'llh sem hann skrifai til konunga og ramanna heimsins tleg sinni til Adranpel og Akk. ar rakst g mjg hugaveran kafla Musteristflunni (Sriy-i-Haykal) ar sem Bah'u'llh vsar til komu nsta opinberanda Gus.

kaflanum lkir Bah'u'llh sjlfum sr vi spegil sem endurvarpar ljsi Gus. a er reyndar samlking sem bah'ar ekkja vel og nota oft til a rskra hugtaki stighkkandi opinberun, en a er eitt af grundvallaratrium bah' trarinnar. S samlking er lei a lkja megi Gui vi slina. Hn er uppspretta alls lfs en engu a sur mun upphafnara svii og engin lfvera getur nlgast hana og slin getur aldrei stigi niur til jarar n ess a tortma llu lfi.

Opinberendum Gus, ea sendiboum hans, bor vi Mse, Jes, Bddha og Bah'u'llh, m lkja vi fullkomna spegla sem endurvarpa ljsi slarinnar og aeins gegn um getum vi ekkt Gu, ekki samrmi vi raunveruleika hans heldur aeins samrmi vi skilningsgetu okkar, enda getur skpunin aldrei skili skapara sinn til fulls.

Allir opinberendur gera einnig sttmla vi fylgjendur sna um a viurkenna nsta opinberanda, en Kristur talai til dmis um a hann myndi koma aftur, sem margir taka v miur bkstaflega. Bah'u'llh talar til dmis um a Kitb-i-Aqdas, lgbk sinni a nsti opinberandi muni ekki koma fyrr en a linum sund rum og varar fylgjendur sna vi a gera a sama vi hann og gert var vi sig.

umrddri tflu kemur etta sama stef fyrir en me nokkrum rum htti, sem var ntt fyrir mr tt g hafi lesi essa tflu ur (g var greinilega ekki a taka ngu vel eftir!). ar er Gu a varpa opinberanda sinn og talar um hann sem spegil sem muni aftur birta ara spegla sem muni bera vitni valdi hans og yfirrum". San varar hann vi v a eir rtni af stolti frammi fyrir skapara snum og mtanda egar hann birtist meal eirra, ea lti prjl forystunnar tla sig og hindra sig a beygja sig undirgefni frammi fyrir Gui, hinum almttuga og al-rlta." (mn ing).

a er einmitt etta sem eru klasssk vibrg valdhafanna innan trarbraganna egar nr opinberandi birtist sem veldur jningum hans og oft tum lflti. rtt fyrir a sigrar boskapur hans a lokum sem er ein skrasta snnunin fyrir tilkalli opinberandans.

Hr er svo textinn eins og hann birtist bkinni:

O Living Temple! We, verily, have made Thee a mirror unto the kingdom of names, that Thou mayest be, amidst all mankind, a sign of My sovereignty, a herald unto My presence, a summoner unto My beauty, and a guide unto My straight and perspicuous Path. We have exalted Thy Name among Our servants as a bounty from Our presence. I, verily, am the All-Bountiful, the Ancient of Days. We have, moreover, adorned Thee with the ornament of Our own Self, and have imparted unto Thee Our Word, that Thou mayest ordain in this contingent world whatsoever Thou willest and accomplish whatsoever Thou pleasest. We have destined for Thee all the good of the heavens and of the earth, and decreed that none may attain unto a portion thereof unless he entereth beneath Thy shadow, as bidden by Thy Lord, the All-Knowing, the All-Informed. We have conferred upon Thee the Staff of authority and the Writ of judgement, that Thou mayest test the wisdom of every command. We have caused the oceans of inner meaning and explanation to surge from Thy heart in remembrance of Thy Lord, the God of mercy, that Thou mayest render thanks and praise unto Him and be of those who are truly thankful. We have singled Thee out from amongst all Our creatures, and have appointed Thee as the Manifestation of Our own Self unto all who are in the heavens and on the earth.

Bring then into being, by Our leave, resplendent mirrors and exalted letters that shall testify to Thy sovereignty and dominion, bear witness to Thy might and glory, and be the manifestations of Thy Names amidst mankind. We have caused Thee again to be the Origin and the Creator of all mirrors, even as We brought them forth from Thee aforetime. And We shall cause Thee to return unto Mine own Self, even as We called Thee forth in the beginning. Thy Lord, verily, is the Unconstrained, the All-Powerful, the All-Compelling. Warn, then, these mirrors, once they have been made manifest, lest they swell with pride before their Creator and Fashioner when He appeareth amongst them, or let the trappings of leadership delude and debar them from bowing in submission before God, the Almighty, the All-Beauteous.

Say: O concourse of mirrors! Ye are but a creation of My will and have come to exist by virtue of My command. Beware lest ye deny the verses of My Lord, and be of them who have wrought injustice and are numbered with the lost. Beware lest ye cling unto that which ye possess, or take pride in your fame and renown. That which behoveth you is to wholly detach yourselves from all that is in the heavens and on the earth. Thus hath it been ordained by Him Who is the All-Powerful, the Almighty.
