25:48 And He it is who has sent the winds, bearing good news before His mercy. And We sent down from heaven pure water.
This is an allusion to the wind of kind favor from the direction of solicitude, which blows over the hearts of the faithful to sweep away completely the rubbish of opposition and the varieties of opacity. Then the hearts will be worthy of receiving the generous arrivals from the Real. When the scent of the repose of those winds reaches the breast of the servants, they seek for increase in those influxes and search out the fragrance of those arrivals and that solicitude. In loving kindness and gentleness, the Exalted Lord opens four doors for them: The door of beautiful-doing, the door of blessings, the door of obedience, and the door of love.
By virtue of mortal nature the servant enters the road of his own ingratitude, for Surely man is ungrateful to his Lord [100:6], so he closes the door of beautiful-doing to himself. The Real sends the messenger of generosity with the key of forbearance and pardon: "I will curtain your ugly-doing with My mercy, for I am the kind Master and you are the weak servant." That is His words, "He it is who accepts repentance from His servants and pardons the ugly deeds" [42:25].
In the same way, the Exalted Lord opens the door of blessings for the servant. The servant comes forward with ingratitude, for Surely man is a clear ingrate [43:15], so he closes that door to himself with shortcoming in giving thanks. The Real sends the messenger of bounty with the key of favor and says, "Though you have fallen short in giving thanks, I do not fall short in My kindness." That is His words, "In the bounty of God, and His mercy [in that let them rejoice]" [10:58].
The third door that God opens for the servant is the door of obedience. The servant closes that door to himself with disobedience. The Real sends the messenger of forgiveness with the key of repentance: "When you commit a sin, I will forgive you, and I do not care." That is His words, "Surely God forgives the sins altogether" [39:53].
The fourth is the door of love, which God opens for the servant with His own bounty. The servant comes forth with disloyalty and closes that door to himself with impudence and breaking the covenant. The Exalted Lord sends the messenger of clemency with the key of curtaining: "My servant, though you have dared to act with ugly deeds, I will let that go, for I am your Beloved and I am the one who says, 'He loves them, and they love Him' [5:54]."
25:48-49 And We sent down from heaven pure water, thereby to give life to a dead earth and give drink to many cattle and men that We created.
And We sent down from heaven pure water. Naṣrābādī said, "This is the sprinkles of the waters of love that He sprinkles on the hearts of the recognizers, thereby bringing their souls to life by putting their nature to death. Then He makes their hearts a leader for the people, effusing His blessings upon them, and the blessings of their heart's light reaches everything that has a spirit. God says, 'thereby to give life to a dead earth and give drink to many cattle and men that We created.'"
